Book Review: Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller

I was approved to read and review Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller from Netgalley ( a place where bookbloggers can request books to feed their readers!).  What drew me to the book was the mystical type of cover and that it was about a little girl living in the woods. This reminded me of old fairy tales like…

Book Review: The Other Boy by Ian and Rosi Taylor

I was browsing through the Goodreads giveaways and came across this chilling supernatural novella so I entered and was lucky to have won a copy. Here is my honest review. I am a huge fan of novellas and short stories. I think it takes a very special writer to get their story across in a limited number of words. Novellas…
