Book reviews

“One must always be careful of books,” said Tessa, “and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

As an avid reader I grasp all books with appreciation and respect, from pulp fiction to academic tomes. My reviews tend towards the academic, but I am open to reviewing other genres if given the opportunity.
