Book Review: Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett is best known for his Discworld series, but I have never read it. One of these days, I will get to the bottom of my stack of books and go out to buy some. Consequentially, I can’t compare this book to any on Terry Pratchett’s more popular novels. Dragons at Crumbling Castle is… Continue reading Book Review: Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett

Book Review: The Princess and the Goblin by George Mac Donald

I really love this children’s story! Being a fan of classic fairy tales, The Princess and the Goblin fits that format perfectly. It is a beautiful tale with two children that are wonderful to follow throughout an adventure about faith. I honestly could read this over and over again and still feel the same delight… Continue reading Book Review: The Princess and the Goblin by George Mac Donald

Book Review: The Wonderful Wizard of OZ by L. Frank Baum

There are times when I get tired of reviewing newer books. My go-to for relaxing tends to be classic children’s books I never read as a child. At the age I should have been reading books like this one, I was reading Christian and Historical romance novels with some Sweet Valley Twins thrown in. It… Continue reading Book Review: The Wonderful Wizard of OZ by L. Frank Baum

Book Review: The Sea-Hawk by Rafael Sabatini

OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is an amazing book! I loved the last Sabatini novel I read, but this was amazing! Pirates, betrayal, thwarted love, exotic locations, continual suspense… seriously, what more can you ask for? The Sea-Hawk by Sabatini is not the same story as the Errol Flynn movie by the same name. I am… Continue reading Book Review: The Sea-Hawk by Rafael Sabatini

Book Review: Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi

Pinocchio is an Italian children’s book that is well worth reading. I have never read this book until now and had only known it from the Walt Disney movie. As with most films, the book is much better. In this case, it is almost an entirely different story. The Disney movie makes the story of… Continue reading Book Review: Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi

Book Review: Jane Austin, Obstinate Heart by Valerie Grosvenor Myer

Jane Austin is by far my favorite author, which is surprising since she isn’t my typical genre of book. It still can remember my emotions the first time I read Pride and Prejudice. I was completely captured. Her humor and wit inspire me. So when I came across this biography, I was excited to learn… Continue reading Book Review: Jane Austin, Obstinate Heart by Valerie Grosvenor Myer
