Since then, I realized that there are many ways to reinterpret the text.Continue reading “Darling Girl: A Novel of Peter Pan Book Review”

As I mentioned two weeks ago, for every Battle of the Books, the Children’s Librarians at my work get to pick 10 titles to read.

The Water Dancer Book Review

Warning: This book review contains references to sexual assault. Within the last two years, there’s been a call to reexamine how the United States views its racist past, slavery in particular.

What Was Your Name Downriver: Tales of the Shattered Frontier Book Review

Full disclosure: I was given a free physical copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I’ve read plenty of unique genres like comic thrillers, but none have been as bizarre as the western-fantasy hybrid. I’ve read plenty of fantasy, yet I’ve never read any westerns. When I came across the novel WhatContinue reading “What Was Your Name Downriver: Tales of the Shattered Frontier Book Review”
