I think I finally did it. I think I beat my reading slump.
It only took me… five months. But I did it!!!
July was a surprisingly good month for me. At this point, I had given up all hope and thought that I would never regain the motivation to read like I had, but then came The Reading Rush.
Readathons scare me. A lot. So I had never done one before. I never liked the idea of pushing myself to read as much as possible, because I thought it would inevitably cause me to burn myself out.
Looks like I was wrong.

Review in a Nutshell: Becoming the Dark Prince reminded me of every single reason why I love Thomas Cresswell (and there are many).

Becoming The Dark Prince is a Stalking Jack the Ripper series novella, told from Thomas Cresswells POV. It picks up at the end of Escaping From Houdini and continues a little bit beyond where that book left off. And while technically I don’t know if you absolutely need to read it before reading Capturing the Devil, I can say with confidence that you really, really should.
Read more for all of my thoughts!
