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.

Children’s Book Sunday: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

And knowing the book right now, the cover represents Furthermore PERFECTLY. But, did the inside live up to my expectations? Short answer: Yes, totally. I really loved Furthermore, […]
