Pax was another recommendation from my brother. This time though it wasn’t my favorite book. It was sad (which he forewarned me about by saying to read it with a box of tissues), the father was awful, and the ending left several plot lines unfinished. 496 more words

Book Review - The Secret Of Nightingale Wood

Author: Lucy Strange

This book is quite the strange beast. I was expecting a sort of Alice in Wonderland/Secret Garden mash-up, that’s the impression I got from the blurb and the opening reinforced that; with the focus being on the mystery of the forest and the weird and wonderful unexplained witchery in there. 468 more words


The Foundling Fairy|Book Review

The Foundling Fairy by Flick Jones

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Firstly I would to thank Pegasus Publishing for the review copy.

Having not read a children’s book in a while it was weird adjusting to the language, and the repetition but from a child’s perspective it was definitely aimed correctly. 163 more words
