Well here we are: the final week of Febookuary and only three reviews to go. Damn the momentum has been hard to keep up, with last week being a great example. Hopefully we can all forget about that with this review of one of the most well-known horror characters in fiction, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. So quick, let us transform into that ghastly and repetitive of things, the obligatory overview! Continue reading “Febookuary – The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Both Pleasing and Vile”
As the old cliché goes, better late than never I guess. I apologise to, I estimate, all three of you who were eagerly awaiting the Burmese Days review on Monday and found nothing but the blankness of my writing failures. That and my review of Colorless Tsukuru. I had been busy as of late and, while I could have avoided such tardiness by planning ahead and writing my review in advance, I was a bit too lethargic on that score and am now in the situation of having to write at least three reviews very quickly.

Well it’s a new month and a new theme. If I had any proper planning skills I would have made a new banner or something, but I think my new Chronic Chronicler banner will do in the change department for now.

Hello there! I hope you’ve been enjoying the New Year so far, getting over hangovers, feeling that extra bit of flab develop round your belly, already breaking your New Year’s Resolution.
Well here at The Chronic Chronicler, I have my own resolution. My resolution this year is to not have any form of hiatus that has plagued me sine this blog’s inception. A tough challenge I know, but I have a way to help me keep posting.
As you may have guessed from the title, for the entirety of 2014 I had been endeavouring to read 50 books. Why did I do this you may be asking? Well a friend of mine when I was still a student at University (I know, I live the sad life now) had done the challenge and was now on the 100 books in a year, maybe in 150 but I forget. But I do remember thinking it would be a lot of fun to do, since I’m a bit of a literary nerd, so I decided to give it a bash.
