The Dagger in the Desk: Bonus: Ghost Guide & Preview of The Hollow Boy (Lockwood & Co.) by Jonathan Stroud [Amazon, Kindle, Free]
A novelette from the Lockwood & Co series, taking place between Book 2 and Book 3. Not a lot here, just a mini-mystery that doesn’t add much to the overarching story, except that we get a little of how the talking skull is working with the narrator.
I’m glad to see that Book 3 is out.
Bleak House by Charles Dickens [Kindle, Amazon, Free]
Not my favorite Dickens. Every once in a while, my interest would wane, and I would be on the verge of giving it up, when something would catch my eye, and I would keep reading.
At over 1000 pages, this seemed to go on forever.
But, there are a few interesting characters, most of them probably the most self-centered in literature.
I would only recommend if you are a Dickens completionist.
