Will Even Reads New Tales! Books by Fellow Authors

On the sister page I’ve put a listing of my reviews of classic literature (you haven’t read them, but I did it for you). Here are books from those who walk among us, the classics we don’t know well enough not to read yet. Catch them now before they’re made into movies!

I give the title and author, my Star-rank(for quality) and my Hope grade (for the tone). I also link to the reviews I’ve done in case you’d like to see them together. I’ll arrange them by author’s last name.

Books of the Current Day

I love to read and review the work of my fellow authors and if you’re looking for a good one I hope you’ll check these out.
