Review: The Dragon In The Library

How could I resist a middle grade tale about dragons and libraries? Well, I couldn’t. This book is just perfect, as if it was written for me, and a whole dragon’s hoard of young bookworms are going to adore it!

TBR Check In: April 2019

How is it April already? As this post goes up I will be in the air on my way to Japan – the husband and I are taking an amazing trip for three weeks! I’ve always, always wanted to visit Japan, so this is a dream come true. Plus, 12 hour flights means a whole lot of reading time, right? Anyway, let’s catch up with the state of my TBR…

Review: The Time Travel Diaries

I was so excited when I saw Caroline Lawrence was writing a new book, because the Roman Mysteries series was one of my favourites as a kid. Really, they led me to get into Lindsey Davis’ Falco mysteries as a teen, and between the two, they’re responsible for my entire Classics degree. So when I heard about The Time Travel Diaries, I instantly knew I had to read this one!
