Book Review | A Study in Charlotte

I’m kind of a sucker for anything Sherlock. He’s one of my favorite literary characters, and I actually like almost any iteration of him I’ve come across.

My White Whale | Moby Dick

Herman Melville’s Moby Dick is one of those books I’ve been meaning to read for years, but was (am) totally intimidated by. It’s been in the back of my mind ever since Matilda picks it up at the end of the movie, symbolizing her happily ever after (I was a bit obsessed with Matilda as a […]
