Dark, devious and delightful! Teenage angst has never led to such fun as Jamie Watson follows Charlotte Holmes down the rabbit hole once more in this exciting sequel to A Study in Charlotte.
International travel, art forgery, minions, and the most awkward family gathering imaginable, this book is full of adventure, mystery and great Sherlockian deductions. Readers also get more of the Moriarty family, and more insights into the history of the famous families, plus there's romance, false identities and poison. What more could a Sherlock Holmes fan ask for?
I've enjoyed Trevor Noah's stand up and his hosting of The Daily Show, but he's at his best in this book. Growing up in South Africa during apartheid where his birth is a literal crime, Noah is guided by his amazing mother, and the moments in the book that shine the most are about her. I definitely recommend the audiobook- so check out our link to Libro FM!
A must for all The Princess Bride fans!
Magical and thrilling! Scarlett has wanted to go to Caraval her whole life, but little can prepare her for what awaits her and her sister when they finally get their tickets. Romance, beauty, tricks AND treats, sisterly affection, and danger is yours for the reading, if you dare! Definitely one of my favorites this year.
This is a book for Readers with a capital R! Will Schwalbe delights and details the pleasure and necessity of reading. Every chapter features a different book and something that the author got from reading it- Slowing Down, Choosing Kindness, Recharging, Losing, Mastering the Art of Reading (of which I personally underline most of the chapter) and so many more. In fact the only times I put this book down was to write down my own feelings on what I had just read. A perfect book for any bookworm, and one that I'll be sharing with my book club friends!
Molly Harper has solved my fear of flying! From now on, I shall only fly aboard planes with sexy male vampires who can act as a personal parachute in case the plane's pilot attempts to attack me and steal my book. Harper once again strikes the perfect balance between snarky and sexy.
Forget Gone Girl and Girl on the Train. Move over Big Little Lies and The Woman in Cabin 10. Because Fingersmith has one of the best jaw dropping, plot twisting, Oh-My-God-Did-That-Just-Happen moments that I've ever read.
Every reader has been asked that impossible question "What's your favorite book?". I used to dread that question, knowing I would have to pull out charts listing my favorite authors, and narrowing it down to their best books. Pie charts and math were involved. Until I read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and it finally answered the question of what was my favorite book of all time. Full of magic and beauty, it makes my heart ache with longing, because it's a world I would love to visit. If you get the chance, I'd also recommend this one on audio because it's narrated by the talented Jim Dale.
