Book Review: A Short History of Nearly Everything

I haven't read a Bill Bryson book in a really long time, so when I came across one of his in a secondhand hand shop I knew I had to get it. A Short History of Nearly Everything is very different from Bryson's usual work, as he tends to primarily write travel novels. What's different… Continue reading Book Review: A Short History of Nearly Everything

Book Review: A Clockwork Orange

The novel by Anthony Burgess was released in the 1960s and is not considered a classic and essential read. It may then be surprising that I've only read it now, despite it having a place on my reading list for at least four years now. The novel follows protagonist Alex's fall from grace, reformation, and… Continue reading Book Review: A Clockwork Orange

Book Review: Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel

I ordered this book the second I found out about it, which was in July as it was released for it's 25th anniversary. It took a lot of restraint but I decided to wait until October to read it.
