5/5

This was hilarious. Just a story to take the piss out of high-minded bullshitters.

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 44 comments 14. Shades of Earl Grey- Laura Childs

4/5

Eh, okay. Not as good as the first in the series.

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 44 comments 15. Bloody Red Baron- Kim Newman

3/5

For a while, the book was solely revisionist history to include vampires... which was interesting, but not enough to keep me invested in the story. By the time stuff really started happening, I was wishing I was reading an actual history on WWI.

Jessica (covered_in_rust) | 44 comments 16. A Study in Scarlet- Arthur Conan Doyle

4/5

A reread in a new edition. How did I forget about the weird western part in the middle?

Elsewise, Still great...
