Welcome to my attempt to recommend books. I'm going to try to do this once a month (these blog-series really don't work for me, see: every other series I've tried) to show what I've read and let you know if you should read these books too. August was a slow reading month for two reasons: … Continue reading August Books: Read or Run?
Yes, Hermione Granger Was Correctly Sorted into Gryffindor
Not my usual blog content, but it is usual for me to go on and on about small things from the fictional universes I fell in love with in my childhood and adolescence.
