The Great St Mary’s Day Out

GoodReads ★★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday Time travel and Shakespeare, this was just so much fun!My initial review sums it up quite well, but you might one to start with the first book in the series. I would like to say that it will all make more sense this way, but it being St. Mary's, I can't really... Continue Reading →

Just Act Normal

GoodReads ★★★ So, I don't follow Pie Comics online. I vaguely remembered reading the first collection, Book Learnin', a couple of years ago and that there were not enough books in a book called Book Learning. Fast forward a couple of years and I am looking for something to read that is quick and easy... Continue Reading →

Lies, Damned Lies, and History

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday As I'm reading this series, this is currently the last book in the series (at the time of writing of this review). I was anticipating some withdrawal symptoms after finishing it, because I read all other books back to back.Lies, Damned Lies, and History was not my favorite in the series. There...

Ships and Stings and Wedding Rings

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday Another Christmas short from St Mary's. Another delightful tale. What should have been an easy, although off the book, jump, will turn, as usual, into a more complicated situation really quick. And, of course, there will be danger involved.I like these short stories on their own, but they are really good at... Continue Reading →

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday What Could Possibly Go Wrong?Anyone asking this in relation to St Mary's must be either very brave or very stupid. The disaster magnets are back and the chaos will only be bigger this time as Max is set to train a new bunch of them. Lots of nice adventures in this one,... Continue Reading →

No Time Like The Past

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday I went into this having certain expectations. I was not disappointed.Returning to St Mary's was great (even though I only left for half a day). Your favorite time-traveling historians return in order to cause more mayhem. No Time Like The Past focuses slightly more on St Mary's related problems, as they travel... Continue Reading →

Stay Where You Are and Then Leave

GoodReads ★★★★★ I was very excited to read this book as I'm a great fan of John Boyne's books! I just loved the title, and had high expectations for the rest of the novel. It didn't disappoint! The story centers around Alfie during the First World War in London. One day when shoeshining near Kings... Continue Reading →

Christmas Present

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday While I've enjoyed all short stories up to this one, they were nice additions but in order to follow the story of the main series, they weren't necessary. Now however, with Christmas Present (another Christmas short story) I would say this is the case, as the events from this short story have... Continue Reading →

A Trail Through Time

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday A Trail Through Time starts off right where A Second Chance ended and basically this is the moment where the aforementioned second chance really comes into play. Leon and Max are on the run and hunted through time and space (though maybe just through time). As they jump up and down the... Continue Reading →

The Crying of Lot 49

GoodReads ★★ It's been some time since I've hated a book with a passion like I did The Crying of Lot 49. Warning: some ramblings ahead.It was a book club read and I wanted to start this about two weeks before the book club, because I wanted the book to be still fresh in my... Continue Reading →

Roman Holiday

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday Another short to accompany the main St Mary’s series. While it’s perfectly possibly to follow the series without reading the short stories, I would certainly recommend them as it provides you with some extra adventures and postpones the inevitable moment where you’ll have to return to the normal, non-time traveling world.Expect everything... Continue Reading →

A Second Chance

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday Returning to St Mary’s already feels like a long awaited return home, even as I’m bingereading my way through the series. I’ve seldom had so much fun just with the characters as they really are what make the series stand out. And normally, I’m really not much of a bingereader myself (don’t... Continue Reading →
