Taking Risks in Writing

So I know I haven’t posted in a while. College is kicking my butt. Anyway, I’m rereading The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz (#2 on Project: Sherlock rankings) and I’m remembering why it was so high on the list and one of my favorite books. The funny thing is, it was all set to win until a last-minute […]

Review: I Will Find the Answer

I Will Find the Answer by Kate WorkmanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars It feels weird not putting this book under Project: Sherlock. This may take some getting used to. So, to start off, I have to be honest. It’s not as good as Populaire was, and I honestly didn’t expect it to be. That’s […]
