Mini(bot) Reviews: The Blue Sword

I read The Hero and the Crown last month and loved it and I knew I needed to read more of McKinley’s work. It was natural that I start with the sequel to Hero.

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Cozy Classics – Emma

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

Quick Chat: Favorite Slump

Coming at you today with a shorter discussion post, which I’m calling a quick chat (yeah, you can definitely figure it out from the title of the post, but I felt the need to explain anyway LOL.) I’d like to talk about reading slumps…caused by none other than my favorite author!

Book Reviews: Francesca Lia Block (Part 1)

Strap in for a snark-filled deep-dive, bibliofriends, because I took another stroll down Nostalgia Lane recently. Francesca Lia Block was an author that High School Millie loved. She’s one my friend’s favorite authors (maybe her most favorite?) and I was curious to see what Current Millie thought of her work. I picked up two quick reads one weekend and if you’re looking for a TL;DR, here it is:

I basically hated them.

Book Review: Jolly Foul Play

Jolly Foul Play
By Robin Stevens

My Edition:
Paperback, 347 pages
2018, Simon & Schuster
ISBN: 9781481489102

Daisy and Hazel are back at Deepdean for another term after their adventures on the Orient Express. But the year is shaping up to be unpleasant under the regime of the new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst, and her five Prefects. When Elizabeth is found dead after a fireworks display, Daisy and Hazel team up once more to solve the case. School staff believes Elizabeth’s death to be an accident, but the Wells & Wong Detective Society believe otherwise – plenty of girls had a motive to murder Elizabeth, and the girls mean to find out who did it.

The more of these books I read, the more I love this series. I know they’re hitting US shelves a few years behind the UK releases, but I hope this series continues for a long time!
