About a Book
building my bookshelf, one review at a time.

Gus may not seem impressed but I am sure he would love The Master and Margarita as much as I did.
My reading mood has led me to classics and I have thoroughly enjoyed diving into research mode to put together a ridiculously long TBR.📚 Outside of school, I haven’t read many classics so it is a whole new world. I knew for sure that I wanted to give the much loved Jane Austen a read, and after looking into her published works I thought “hmmm, why not read them all??” Yep, I’m all in.😄
My reading mood has led me on a classics journey and I have been in full research mode building my TBR.📚 I am so excited about so many books! First up is The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, which sounds so wonderfully bizarre, taking place over a span of a few summer days in Moscow when the city is visited by the Devil along with his entourage that includes a giant talking cat. Consider me intrigued.😄
“In my mind are all the tides, their seasons, their ebbs and their flows. In my mind are all the halls, the endless procession of them, the intricate pathways. When this world becomes too much for me, when I grow tired of the noise and the dirt and the people, I close my eyes and I name a particular vestibule to myself; then I name a hall.”
I’ve gone digital! Over the past year ebooks have been my go-to format for reading so I finally got a proper e-reader. Managing my library holds is so much easier now.😊
Three books down and one to go! While I loved the first two novels in The Cemetery of Forgotten Books quartet, this one lacked that same magic. I was not particularly drawn to the story and trying to make sense of the timeline as it relates to the previous novel, The Angel’s Game became somewhat confusing. It feels like the start of a story rather than a complete one. Perhaps after reading the final novel it will click into place but on its own it left me disappointed (especially after reading The Angel’s Game, which I appreciated immensely).
