Review: Sisters by Raina Telgemeier (Smile #2)

*Just a little disclaimer, you don't have to have read the first book, Smile, in order to read this one. They're companion novels and they all surround Raina's experiences growing up.* Absolutely love the artwork in these graphic novels. So detailed, yet not too much in the slightest. I've pretty much come to the conclusion… Continue reading Review: Sisters by Raina Telgemeier (Smile #2)

Book Review: Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

This kid's book is a little weird and didn't really meet whatever expectations I had for it. Originally published 54 years ago in 1963, Sendak's story follows a rather badly behaved little boy named Max who, after another obnoxious episode, is sent to his room without supper (pretty harsh but hey). Max soon finds himself… Continue reading Book Review: Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Maybe it has to do with the time in which they were written and published (during the early 1900s) or the fact that they were imagined, created, and put to paper by Baum himself. Oz is such a place filled with wonder, peace, joy,… Continue reading Book Review: Oz The Great and Powerful by Elizabeth Rudnick

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
