The Borgias

Anyone who knows me personally, or at least via my reviews over the past few years, knows that I have an especially large soft spot for the Italian Renaissance. I’ve been drawn to the period ever since I started actively reading about history for pleasure, instead of just as part of the school curriculum, and the interest has remained even when my interest in other parts of history, like, say, ancient Egypt, waxed and waned according to various events in my life and shifts in personal interest. Anyone who knows me personally, or at least via my reviews over the past few years, knows that I have an especially large soft spot for the Italian Renaissance.

The Magic Faraway Tree (The Faraway Tree, #2)

Return to the Fairy World11 March 2012 Well, I have now read this book, though I will continue to do what I normally do when I wish to revisit a review and that is to keep my older one below (normally because there are still things there that are relevant despite me having reviewed this book without reading it in like 25 years). Now I can also legitimately add it to my reading list as I have now read the book as opposed to my Dad reading it to me when I was six.

Iron Maiden - The Book Of Souls Review • metal.de

Galerie mit 41 Bildern: Iron Maiden auf dem Wacken Open Air 2016Irgendwie hatte ich schon nach der Veröffentlichung das Gefühl, dass “The Final Frontier” nicht wirklich das studiotechnische Ende der Eisernen Jungfrauen sein konnte. Ich gebe gerne zu, dass ich mit keinem Album nach “Brave New World” warm geworden bin, was natürlich auch mit der Ausrichtung von IRON MAIDEN nach der Reunion zu tun hat. Die progressiven Aspekte im Bandsound haben mir auf “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son” richtig gut gefallen, wirkten auf den neueren Veröffentlichungen aber wie Fremdkörper.

Hungry Hearts And Family Matters In 'Middlesteins'

At first glance, a novel in which the main character eats herself to death may not seem like the most felicitous pick for Thanksgiving week; butThe Middlesteinsturns out to be a tough but affecting story about family members putting up with each other, even in their most unlovely, chewing-with-their-mouths-open life moments.
