The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami – A Book Review

What a peculiar type of book!

The structure of it was definitely interesting and helped provide creative visuals for…… Continue reading The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami – A Book Review

The Black Book of Secrets by F.E. Higgins – A Book Review

The Black Book of Secrets, written by F.E. Higgins, is a British, middle-grade, dark fantasy book. Now when I say dark fantasy I don’t necessarily mean it in the traditional sense of the word. The book just so happens to be both dark and fantastical. Are the fantasy elements themselves dark? Nope, not at all.…… Continue reading The Black Book of Secrets by F.E. Higgins – A Book Review
