Review – The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

So. The Hazel Wood. This is a book that, if I passed it in the bookstore I’d immediately pick it up for that cover alone. And then I’d read the synopsis and be hooked. Then I’d read the book and be horribly disappointed.  I’m not sure what ruined the book for me — my own expectations or the hype (which just […]

Review – Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath

I was hesitant going into this book. There were elements of the synopsis that caught my eye, such as the fact that the leading gentleman, Mick, isn’t nobility in full and therefore his place in the world is not the prim and proper London ton which is usually the case. There’s also the fact that the heroine, Lady Aslyn, is also a bit […]

Review – Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler

I almost DNFed Runebinder. I wanted to love it because it’s diverse. It’s YA. It’s fantasy. I mean, you can’t lose, right? Heh. About that. . .

And you needed views, so you reviewed books, but that wasn’t the goal (at least not right away). So why did you start a book review blog? This […]

Review – The Trouble with True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke

Lady Truelove is back in book 2 of the Dear Lady Truelove series! Last time around, a newspaper editor found love with a duke, and I debated whether it was worth reading the sequel due to a number of issues. I’m happy to say that The Trouble with True Love was an improvement on the series, featuring a heroine whose confidence grows […]

Review – The Lost Plot by Genevieve Cogman

I wasn’t really sure where The Lost Plot would take this series. After finishing The Burning Page last year, I felt like the series had all but wrapped up (I think it was only supposed to be a trilogy at first?). There was a bit of a disconnect with this fourth book. Part of this may be from the length of time between reading […]
