Book Review: “Anansi Boys”

I had absolutely no idea what to expect going into this book. I'd recently read The Graveyard Book graphic novel and had enjoyed it a fair amount, though it wasn't a new favourite. I did think that this book would be original and certainly very interesting, which proved to be correct. But, similarly to The Graveyard Book, this also isn't a new favourite. In fact, I have to sadly announce that this review is on a book that I DNF'd (Did Not Finish). However, if you still want to hang around and hear why, then I'd love that!...

I only read the first book a few months ago and loved it (if you haven't read it then you can see my recent review of it here), so as soon as I got the sequel in the mail I was ready to read...

Review: The Gilded Wolves

I borrowed this book from the library several months ago now--during my summer holidays--and I read it promptly, but I haven't been very proactive in writing the review for it. Luckily, I take notes after finishing a book so that everything I want to write about it is fresh down on the page for me to revisit. Before I get into a new review, I figure I might as well catch myself up and write the ones I've been putting off. So, here I am drinking peppermint tea and freaking out about this intricately gorgeous cover that holds an even more intricate and gorgeous story...
