Bookish ruminations

Spoiler Alert: This post contains mild spoilers for Miss Buncle’s Book.  After devouring Miss Buncle’s Book, I was most eager to pick up Miss Buncle Married and immerse myself in that world again. Alas, I had to wait to revisit Persephone Books. In waiting for the fateful day to arrive, I picked up The First Fifteen […]

Today, I’m writing about 10 books or series. Retellings are one of my favorite things to read, so I thought this post would be fun. Some of these, I didn’t love – but I think others would. Unlike usual, this post is going to be in the order of the ones I love the most […]

A review of The Gorgon Bride by Galen Surlak-Ramsey. I original saw this in the suggested links through Amazon and from reading the blurb and seeing the cover I thought I’d give it a go. The Cover is colorful and the focal point is the Gorgon, Euryale, which I’m sure everyone remembers as Medusa’s sister. […]

Sometime in 2018 or 2017, I found out about Webtoons. An app where comic book writers can upload self published comics and mangas. I would hear people talk about them when they mentioned the story line of some of the k-dramas that I’ve watched came from.

Here is another celebration of the art that adorns the covers of some of my favourite books. Because the covers are lovely, but the paintings really come alive when they are released from their green frames. Sometimes just a detail has been chosen, or the painting has been cropped because it wasn’t book-shaped. That may […]
