Book Review | The Moment of Lift

Book Review | The Butchering Art

I am always interested in everything Victorian history. I actually focused on it back when I was a European history major in college. I’ve read about Victorian culture and society and crime.

They’re usually a great combination of both deep and funny. However, I did want to explore a memoir by someone I hadn’t already heard of. […]
