B is for Beagle

The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle

As you know, I recently began a new venture: to read through all my unread classics in alphabetical order. First on the list is Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn. This review contains spoilers.

Happy Xmas and New Year!

Firstly, Sorry I didn't post last week. It got a bit hectic there with family events, hosting some family, and cat-sitting/house-sitting for my holidaying family.

So, that's pretty well erased everything I was going to say -- the … Continue reading Day 27 of NaNoWriMo
