Book Review: Among Others ☆☆☆☆

Among Others was a joy to read, and yet I find it hard to describe exactly why. I don’t think there is any one thing, but a multitude of many elements that come together perfectly. 684 more words

'Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading' by Nina Sankovitch ****

I was most excited when the copy of Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading dropped through my letterbox.  It has been in my top twenty list of ‘please read soon!’ books since I found out about it, but I was unwilling to pay full price for a copy because I had read some rather unfavourable reviews of it.  669 more words

 The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is narrated by death, yes death narrates this story. It is actually fairly interesting to have death narrate a story. 395 more words
