The Dressmaker Of Paris | Georgia Kaufmann | Book Review

The Dressmaker of Paris is the debut novel of Georgia Kauffman. Admittedly, I was drawn to this book on Netgalley because of its beautiful cover.

What I foundContinue reading “The Dressmaker Of Paris | Georgia Kaufmann | Book Review”

Starry Night | Isabel Gilles | Book Review

I really wanted to like Starry Night but, there were too many things that just did not work for me. For starters, the main character Wren drove me crazy.

Why Did I Listen To Wolfpack (Young Readers Edition) by Abby Wambach? I had previously read Wolfpack by Abby Wambach and was curious as to how she had adapted it for a younger audience.
