One of my goals this year was to read more diverse books and the one that I kept hearing about is WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI. I was intrigued by the title and the cover of the book. It sounded like an interesting read because of the names. They aren’t names that you might hear every […]

YA Review: A Study in Charlotte by Bethany Cavallaro

5 Nuts   Yes that is a 5 nut rating. No I’m not exaggerating. I’m a bit obsessed with anything Sherlock related and this book is not an exception. Now, A Study in Charlotte is NOT a retelling.
