Thankfully my parents had the means… Continue reading Rose Recommends: March | The Great Good Thing

Review: The Magicians

The Magicians by Lev Grossman. Viking, 2009. I had high hopes for this book because of the amount of publicity it has received. It's been talked about as a "Harry Potter for adults," which naturally sparked my (as well as many others') attention. I would have to say that I liked it, but I didn't… Continue reading Review: The Magicians
