A Tale of My First Review

Among other things, this blog is going to have book reviews and I’ve decided my first review is going to be on: ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickens. I recently finished reading it and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! I don’t read classics that often, although the next book I’m planning to read after my current read – ‘All I Know Now’ by Carrie Hope Fletcher – is ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde, so I’m trying to get more into them. (Just as a little warning, I cannot guarantee that there won’t be any spoilers, however I’ll try to keep them to a minimum.)

In case you actually have managed to avoid spoilers about the book, here is the blurb as a little summary for you:

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille, the ageing Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There the lives of two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil roads of London, they are drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror, and they soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.

Now, onto the actual review!

The Liebster Award

I was nominated by Ceri ( abookandbeyond ) who basically just tagged everyone; I came across it and I really wanted to do it so I am! Continue reading
