I had The Miniaturist on my wish list for a while but I put it off because there was something about the synopsis that just struck me as the book being a bit of a long […]
Missing Reels was an interesting read for me because I love the idea of silent movies if not the actually having to sit down and watch them if that makes any sense. Our main character […]
I was not actually going to finish my Favorites in 2014 but what the heck? There was only this one left and while I’m not big on retelling (writes the girl who watched Once Upon a Time for the first time in years to see live-action Frozen).
