Review: Doll Bones by Holly Black

Review: Doll Bones by Holly Black

I was extremely excited to read this book! I mean, creepy dolls made in the 1800s that haunt their owners? That sounds perfect to me! Shame it's a really terrible book though. Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends for ever. They love playing with their action figure toys, imagining a magical world of adventure [...]

Children’s Book Sunday: the Mystery at Lilac Inn by Carolyn Keene

Children’s Book Sunday: the Mystery at Lilac Inn by Carolyn Keene

One of these days I'm not going to review any more Nancy Drew books, but today is not that day. Here we are again, with another Nancy Drew book, the fourth one to be precise. The Nancy Drew series is written and set in the 1950s, and I believe this one is the most 50s-esque [...]

Children’s Book Sunday: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

Children’s Book Sunday: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

I was really excited to start this book, it's about an all girl's school in the 1930s and a murder happens. Multiple murders. That's an interesting premise for a children's book isn't it?

I work as a volunteer at my local library. Which provides me with free books if I want to read them. I was looking through our little children's section and came across this one, the Day the Crayons Quit has been high on my to-buy list, but I couldn't justify the price of it. But [...]

Children’s Book Sunday: Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens and Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie

Children’s Book Sunday: Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens and Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie

As you probably know, I love classics and I love children's books, so Peter Pan should be right up my alley, right? I was really excited to read this one, but did it live up to my expectations? We all know the Disney version of Peter Pan, or maybe you know Finding Neverland [I am [...]

Children’s Book Sunday: the Bungalow Mystery by Carolyn Keene

Children’s Book Sunday: the Bungalow Mystery by Carolyn Keene

Will I ever stop reading the Nancy Drew series? Probably not. So here we are AGAIN with book number 3! One downside to these beautiful edition of Nancy Drew, is that they just don't explain what this book is about on the back. So here's the synopsis on Goodreads: Nancy and Helen are trapped in [...]
