Review – The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble

Review – The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble

I could fill a shelf with books that have the potential to be amazing but don’t quite live up to what they claim to offer. This was the case with The Gold-Son, featuring an intriguing cover and a synopsis that promises a tale unlike any I’ve read before. And, indeed, it was certainly original, taking the tale of Leprechauns and breathing new life into it. There’s […]

Review – Ready Set Rogue by Manda Collins

Review – Ready Set Rogue by Manda Collins

It’s not every day you read a romance about a bunch of female scholars. Ready Set Rogue is the first in a series following four “bluestockings” as they inherit a home of a notable scholarly woman they’ve never met. Lots of mystery wrapped up in that little tidbit alone. This first story follows Ivy, an expert in the classics and self-made detective on the trail to discover […]

Review – Perilous Prophecy by Leanna Renee Hieber

Review – Perilous Prophecy by Leanna Renee Hieber

It feels like ages since I’ve stepped into this world. I first stumbled upon this series when I bought The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker during an eBook sale. Imagine my surprise when I found the book in print, along with its sequel, years later AND heard there was going to be a prequel. SO. EXCITED. And Perilous Prophecy didn’t disappoint! I will recommend that, though […]

Review – A Stardance Summer by Emily March

Review – A Stardance Summer by Emily March

Totally didn’t realize this was book 13 in a series. Having not read the previous twelve books, I didn’t feel too lost which bodes well for the book. The series follows the Callahan family as each of them finds love and this time around it’s Brick’s turn. A Stardance Summer includes a prologue that completely threw me for a loop. There’s a character mentioned named Mark Christopher and, having […]

Mini Review – The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett

Mini Review – The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett

This book first reminded me of a sci-fi/dystopian-esque book I read years ago, The Testament of Jessie Lamb, in that it deals with human survival but also in the way that it makes you really think. The story is more about Jamie, a survivor of a virus that wiped out most of humanity on Earth, and how she comes to terms with her past and her […]

Review – Firebrand by A.J. Hartley

Review – Firebrand by A.J. Hartley

I expected a great deal from Firebrand after Hartley delivered a intricately woven story in Steeplejack and I’m happy to report that the sequel lived up to those expectations. The story picks up soon after the events of book 1 with Ang working for the politician Willinghouse as a private detective of sorts, and she’s about to have her work cut out for her. On its own, Firebrand was […]

Mini Review – The Waking Land by Callie Bates

Mini Review – The Waking Land by Callie Bates

I couldn’t get a hold of this book fast enough after reading the synopsis and perhaps that was a bit too much excitement because I ultimately found it to be a a less than average read. The Waking Land follows in the steps of the epic fantasies before it, but with a young adult twist (and the cliches that come with it). I enjoyed a step back into […]

Review – The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss

Review – The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss

If I had to describe this book in one word, it’d be “delightful.” One of my favorite shows is Penny Dreadful, primarily because it mashes literary characters all together in one world, which is exactly what The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter does. Though I didn’t recognize all the references made to other classics, I did pick up on a few such as Jekyll & Hide, […]
