The War of Art Book Review

The War of Art Book Review

I’ve read a lot of writing books over the years, as a teen and as an adult. They come and go; some books hit me profoundly but unfortunately, most don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I find reading through many of them once worth while, but there is only a hand full that...
Uprooted Book Review

Uprooted Book Review

I first came across Uprooted by Naomi Novik because it was one of the books that audible.com suggested that I might like based on my reviews and purchases. I was intrigued by the premise: a girl who doesn’t know that she has magic is taken by a man called the Dragon....

Dragon Rose Book Review

Dragon Rose Book Review

I first looked at Dragon Rose by Christine Pope on audible.com because it’s beautiful cover caught my attention (rather ironic considering the story topic). The next thing that intrigued me is that it’s a Beauty and the Beast retelling, which is awesome because it’s...
