Mini Hiatus Announcement: NaNoWriMo!

In case you don't know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and it takes place every November.

Book Review: The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue was a smash hit last year, and the sequel has been getting so much attention and hype.

Lady's Guide was so hyped for me and I have to say that it more than lived up to my expectations.

I absolutely love true crime podcasts and was really interested to see how this would translate into a printed format. I heard about the incredible audiobook after I purchased the hardcover edition. While I liked Sadie a lot, I feel like the audiobook is going to give the reader a different, and perhaps better, experience.
