The Alchemyst (Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #01) by Michael Scott
The Alchemyst (Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel #01)

Leslie Joseph, August 16, 2014

The initial draw of The Alchemyst was certainly the Harry Potter connection, but within the first few pages it becomes obvious that this is an enchanting story all on it's own. Descriptively written and highly entertaining, this book is a winner for HP fans and fiction lovers alike.

Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
Kitchen

Leslie Joseph, April 13, 2014

Kitchen is quite an engaging little read. Oddly dated yet timeless, it offers an intense story and an open ending. I loved the characters and the simplicity of speech.

Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me by Pattie Boyd
Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me

Leslie Joseph, February 10, 2014

Wonderful Tonight is a thoughtfully written memoir by one of music's famous wives, Pattie Boyd. Through the story, we learn that Pattie Boyd is very much a creative force in her own right, as well as having been muse and partner to both George Harrison and Eric Clapton as their careers surged. Boyd tells a great story, chock full of details and first person experiences of the heady rock and roll culture of decades past. Perfect for any music fan!

From A to Biba: The Autobiography of Barbara Hulanicki by Barbara Hulanicki
From A to Biba: The Autobiography of Barbara Hulanicki

Leslie Joseph, February 10, 2014

From A to Biba is a gorgeous and detailed memoir of the famous clothing company and the couple behind it. This book is part start-up story and part cultural history; Youthquake, Twiggy, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones...swinging London in the 1960s and 70s. Barbara Hulanicki tells the story with personality and loving attention to detail, much in the way she created the legendary Biba store itself.

The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erickson
The Last Wife of Henry VIII

Leslie Joseph, August 22, 2013

The Last Wife of Henry VIII was a great read! It is quality historical fiction that brings familiar figures like Anne Boleyn and Catherine Parr to life. I also loved learning about the geography and culture of Henry VIII's time in a relatable and entertaining way. Definitely recommended to fans of historical fiction and monarchy enthusiasts.
