Review: The Sleeper and the Spindle

Review: The Sleeper and the Spindle

          Shocking admission – this is the first of Neil Gaiman’s work I’ve ever read. Yeup, ever. I have a lot of Gaiman’s novels on my TBR list but I’ve just not got to them yet. After reading this though, I’m going to make more of an effort. This is a […]
