The Woman in the Library

The Woman in the Library offers two of my favorite things to read about- a book about books and the writing process.

The Start of the Mary series

I tried reading Antonia Fraser's biography of Mary Queen of Scots back when the movie came out (naturally) but 50+ some pages in and 12,000 Mary's later I DNF'ed it.

Mayhem By: Estelle Laure This book is being pitched as a YA feminist mash-up of The Lost Boys meets The Craft- and the minute I saw that I knew I wanted to read it! A thousand thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing a free copy as part of the book tour. It's 1987... Continue Reading →

Do You Sanitize Your Books?

 Do you guys sanitize your books? Honestly until recently it's not something that ever crossed my mind. And I say that as someone whose always been a germaphobe. When this started I noticed people talking about it for the first time which naturally made me look at my TBR pile with worry. I've bought nothing... Continue Reading →
