When I heard that there was a new title in the series creatively called The Suspect, I knew I had to read it in order to continue the story. So, how does it hold up against theContinue reading “The Suspect Book Review”

Darling Girl: A Novel of Peter Pan Book Review

Full disclosure: I was given an ARC of this book by NetGallery in exchange for an honest review. Growing up, I loved watching the animated Disney version of Peter Pan.

Maus Book Review

Content Warning: This review discusses nudity as well as depictions of violence, genocide, and suicide.
