The Black Prince and the Capture of a King by Morgan Witzel
Rate this book

This book had its good points and some that were less than great, in my opinion. I picked this Galley copy up because I was interested in the part of the book that promised to be about the day to day life of the soldiers and the planning of the attac ...more

The Mile End Murder by Sinclair McKay

If you are a sucker for true crime books, then this one will surely satisfy the urge. This is an interesting case, and one that, as the title suggests, even Arthur Conan Doyle's attention was captured by.

I liked the way the author approached this, g

Every once in a while, I am lucky enough to find a book that truly does offer a fresh viewpoint or new information on an historical topic that seems to have been covered so many times before that it would be impossible to elaborate on it further. I f ...more

When God Was King by Martyn Whittock
Rate this book
Clear rating
Plain and simply--this is one of the most fascinating books I have read this year. I tend to read a lot of non-fiction and have a particular love of the sixteenth and seventeenth century, so when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. I am so glad ...more

The Real Witches of New England by Ellen Evert Hopman
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book has a lot of good information in the first few chapters, about witchcraft belief and persecution. I think the first few chapters were actually my favourite part of the book. The interviews with the descendants of the original witches had th ...more

The Race to Save the Romanovs by Helen Rappaport

There have been a lot of theories proposed over the years about what happened to the Romanovs and why, but I feel like this is the first book that really explores everything that happened leading up to their unfortunate demise. The sheer amount of pa ...more

"Haunted Castles of England," is a well-organised book with a lot of different castles and manors included with its pages. The author did a good job giving descriptions of the various locations and including a brief history for most of them. I liked ...more

"Some secrets never stay buried for long..."

I don't know about this one. Whilst I feel like this was a good effort, I also think at times that it was a bit filled with poetic license and was somehow on the verge of being...silly? unbelievable? I'm n

“I had a dream about you last night... you were a giant slinky and I watched you fall down the stairs.”
Amy Summers, I Had a Dream About You

Jarod Kintz
“Love is like breakfast with Mildred. Who’s Mildred? How the heck should I know? I don’t eat breakfast.”
Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. And the ageless sages.

Bob Marley
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
Bob Marley

Jarod Kintz
“I rarely drink, but last night, after several hours and several beers at the bar, I found myself face to face with two huge boobs. They weren’t the breasts of a young woman, but those of an old man. Still, the taste of a nipple is genderless.”
Jarod Kintz, So many chairs, and no time to sit

Jarod Kintz
“Love is a circular emotion that surrounds you, like a hug. Or a noose.”
Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. And the ageless sages.
