Book Review | Spinning Silver

Rumpelstiltskin has been my favorite fairy tale since I was a little girl. So, naturally, I had to read Naomi Novik’s take on it. I loved Uprooted, and knew Spinning Silver would be no different.

Book Blogging for Beginners | Planning and Writing Posts

Book Review | Something in the Water

I was looking for a new audiobook a couple of weeks ago, and Reese Witherspoon’s June book pick caught my eye. Thrillers are not normally something I gravitate towards, but I’ve been picking them up pretty consistently this year. Catherine Steadman’s Something in the Water seemed interesting, and I bought it on a whim on Audible.
