The Woman in Blue Review

The Woman in Blue by Elly Griffiths I’d like to start by directing your attention to the title. Not because I have anything deep to say about it, but it rhymes which made me grin.

Wool Review

Wool by Hugh Howey Wool is the first adult sci-fi book I’ve read in a while, and it did NOT disappoint. I had been putting it off because I was a bit (a lot) intimidated by its thickness but I am now very annoyed that I didn’t pick it up sooner! As I write thisContinue reading “Wool Review”
