March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]

January Wrap Up / February Wrap Up I read 16 books in March. It was a very strange month – GP advised me to remain isolated for 2 weeks, which meant I missed the last two weeks of my workplace being open. There was then a gap where they didn’t know if we’d be able toContinue reading “March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]”

Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie, Audible Original Drama [Books]

I have to admit, it’s been a fairly long while since I actually read Peter Pan. When this popped up for free on Audible, I snatched it up, I’m finding I really like full cast audiobooks, and I was excited for this version of the story. Unfortunately, I didn’t really find it that great. Some ofContinue reading “Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie, Audible Original Drama [Books]”

Esme’s Gift – Elizabeth Foster [Books]

Long-time readers of this blog might remember my review for Esme’s Wish, a wonderfully charming book about a young girl who finds herself in a new world, and discovers her mother spent much of her own time there before her disappearance. The adventure continues in Esme’s Gift. Here, we originally see Esme returning home, joyfully anticipating beingContinue reading “Esme’s Gift – Elizabeth Foster [Books]”

Poison – Sarah Pinborough [Books]

Poison is a slightly darker, twisted version of the Snow White story, adding in a little adult content and ensuring things aren’t as clear-cut as the story we’re used to. I won’t do my usual synopsis style introduction here, because I’d be surprised if anyone doesn’t know the story of Snow White, but I will say some ofContinue reading “Poison – Sarah Pinborough [Books]”

Into the Drowning Deep – Mira Grant [Books]

I’m still relatively new to audiobooks. During February, I tried to only start books written by women. I picked up Into the Drowning Deep as I was looking specifically for horror titles, and this seemed a good choice on Audible. I was not wrong. Into the Drowning Deep tells the story of a group of scientists,Continue reading “Into the Drowning Deep – Mira Grant [Books]”

February 2020 Reading Wrap Up [Books]

As with my January Wrap Up, I’m a little behind with this. Since the start of the year, I feel like I’ve been playing a little catch-up with reviews. But I’ve had a bit more time this week, so I’m able to get this up now, and hopefully start really catching up with reviews forContinue reading “February 2020 Reading Wrap Up [Books]”

Straight on Till Morning – Liz Braswell [Books]

Anyone who has been following this blog for a while knows of my love for the Twisted Tales series, by Disney. There are currently three authors involved – Liz Braswell, Elizabeth Lim, and Jen Calonita. These books involve taking the stories we know and love, and adding a single twist that can affect everything. So far, thereContinue reading “Straight on Till Morning – Liz Braswell [Books]”
