Book Review : Olivia Twisted by Vivi Barnes

November 6, 2013 Book review 4 ★★★

Olivia Twisted is a quirky retelling of Oliver Twist and while I enjoyed it, it didn’t wow me like I wanted it to. I love the movie version and the musical so while I have never read the Dickens novel, I’m very familiar with and love the story. My Recap… Read more »
