I'm a fan of Oscar Wilde, so of course I was eager to read this play by him. I love the dialogue in Wilde's plays. While I haven't seen one performed, I always read the lines in a very rapid-fire kind of delivery. Granted this play is not as ridiculo ...more

A lot of people are familiar with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle through Sherlock Holmes. After reading this book, I find it a shame that Professor Challenger isn't also among the famous literary characters. I found him much more entertaining and fascinating ...more

Okay, so I have some mixed feelings about this book. This reaction happens a lot when I come across a teen fiction novel. I find parts of it I like, but other parts that make me grit my teeth or groan as I roll my eyes. This book has both of those qu ...more

This is actually a classic I haven't heard much about before, but I thought to pick it up anyway. And it was an interesting story that touched upon a subject not many other books do. I feel like it's the kind of book that needs more than one reading ...more

Well, this trilogy went downhill fast. The first book wasn't the best, but it was fairly enjoyable and kept my attention. This book did not hold my attention and I ended up being irritated by most of the characters. The only plus of this book is that ...more

Okay, so as I've said many times before, I have a love-hate relationship with YA novels. I go away from some feeling very happy and some feeling disappointed or annoyed. This book has me leaning more toward "happy", though maybe not in the ways that ...more

This is yet another one of those books that I heard of but never read before. I finally decided to give it a try, and I was very surprised by what I found. Admittedly this is a very difficult book to get through, but it is exceptionally good at portr ...more

Just about everyone knows Leonardo da Vinci for his paintings, but not so many know him for his inventions, his work with the military and his experiments. This book shares his thoughts on a lot of different subjects, and I think is a great insight i ...more

I just can't get into Jane Austen. This is now the third book of hers I've read, with the famous Pride and Prejudice and Emma as the other two. I was hoping that an older leading lady and a different take on a story would give me a new opinion, but s ...more

As this book just came out today, I am going to avoid spoilers as much as possible while still keeping the review honest. With that said, let's get to the final installment in the Bloodlines series.

First of all, I want to talk about my rating. I have
