The Romanov Sisters / Helen Rappaport
ARE YOU READY TO GET SAD? Because if you aren't sad yet, you're GONNA BE.This book is really good but also daunting in that there's a dark cloud hanging over the whole thing. Well, there's like eighty dark clouds with one especially giant, especially impenetrable dark cloud.
Humanizing historical royals! A better understanding of many different motivations! Non-dry writing! Win win win (no matter what).
The Girl With All The Gifts / M. R. Carey
I had to stop listening to/reading this because I was having trouble turning my back on dark spaces; it is very scary. I thought this book was for children. CHILDREN. It is not, and I was not prepared. I reckon I'll come back to this one, because it is quite good, but not for awhile here.
Zombies! Experiments! Too scary for me at this time!
Step Aside, Pops / Kate Beaton
I don't think I'll ever have anything bad to say about Kate Beaton, she is a national treasure. I gave The Princess and the Pony to my nieces and they love it. I could have gotten them a fat pony stuffie for Christmas and I am only just now realizing my grave error.
