Snowdrift and Other Stories by Georgette Heyer

I am a very big fan of Georgette Heyer's sense of humour and style of writing. Keeping this in mind , the following review is relatively biased. This book is a collection of some of earlier unpublished and other short stories compiled together.I gained access to it via NetGalley. Considering these were penned in the… Continue reading Snowdrift and Other Stories by Georgette Heyer

Comics & Graphic Novel

Hotel Transylvania Graphic Novel Vol. 1: “Kakieland Katastrophe”

I requested this book from NetGalley because I am a big fan of the Hotel Transylvania series ( as I am of most smart talking animated series).

After a brief hiatus from this… Continue reading A Merciful Death (Mercy Kilpatrick Book 1) by Kendra Elliot

Historical fiction, Mystery

The Hangman’s Daughter (The Hangman’s Daughter #1) by Oliver Pötzsch

This book is not a mystery in the traditional sense but since the core of the story lies within solving a problem and ensuring the release an unjustly accused innocent, I decided a 'mystery' tag is more appropriate than a thriller. This book has as the lead character the town executioner ,  Jakob Kuisl. Jakob… Continue reading The Hangman’s Daughter (The Hangman’s Daughter #1) by Oliver Pötzsch
