Book Review: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

I’m not really that fond of classics, or so I thought. Turns out, I’m finding them quite fun as audio books. Most are available for free on Amazon, so when I don’t understand something that the narrator says, I can just look it up too.

This time, it was through a book that stayed in memories – Heidi by Johanna Spyri. Continue reading “Book Review: Heidi, by Johanna Spyri”
