Happy Birthday to Me – 1 Year oscarreads.com

I can not believe it! My first blog birthday! Wahoo!!!

One year ago I started my journey with oscarreads.com. Why? Well to be honest, I felt a bit bored by the effects of the pandemic. Not being able to meet friends, do sports or what so ever.

Review: The Matchstick Castle by Keir Graff

Boring, Illinois. Brian can definitely think of a better way to spend his holidays. He couldn’t stay at home as his scientist dad got stationed at the North Pole. So Brian had to go to uncle Gary’s house, because he was the only one who had the time to take care of him over the summer.
