The People in the Photo by Helene Gestern

I love letters. (Not <3 letters, just letters in general). I love writing them and receiving them. Email, text, DMs, are fine and convenient but not can compare to what goes into communicating through letters. Perhaps I’m romanticizing something that may seem trivial but consider the effort that is dispensed (write, fold, stamp, and mail), […]

The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan

“The Serpent’s Shadow” is the last book of the Kane Chronicles trilogy and what a ride it has been. The battle against Apophis and his legions of demons and House of Life detractors has finally reached full circle and the end (preferably not the world ending) depends on if Carter and Sadie Kane can summon […]

Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen

One of the challenges of reading fiction books in general, is keeping tabs of the numerous characters who are all, in essence, main characters. I guess you can make the argument that the black dress was the sun and the nine women that came in contact with it were celestial bodies orbiting it. But I […]

Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger

Our favorite spy-to-be has begun her second year at Madame Geraldine’s Finishing School and she’s already tracking another evil plot purported by someone that will affect someone or something. As usual, she doesn’t entirely have all the details…yet. She’s no long a novice—personally, I don’t think she was ever one since her entry. So far […]

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger Here we go again! I started another book series by Gail Carriger – and I’m glad I did. Gail Carriger’s series all relate to each other but they can still be read as stand-alone stories. Some of her characters from the Soulless series do appear in this series but […]

Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne

Love this read. I just finished it, and I can’t help but wonder what the next book will be like? It reminds me of Thief’s Convent, the character’s are close, but yet so different. I so wish I could climb like these thieves. I so wouldn’t be always on the floor or asking for things […]

The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede

However, their friends are quick to come, and completely loyal. Wrede did a awesome job at combining the traditional things […]

In the After Light by Alexandra Bracken

The third and last book of the Darkest Mind series. I enjoyed this book, Bracken did an awesome job at keeping the characters the same, along with making the reader sympathetic towards the main characters. The only thing I did not like, was how it ended. It seemed to be rushed, and hurried along, when […]

The Cherry Cola Book Club by Ashton Lee

This is a first for me; a fiction book about a library. Although it was fiction the struggles and joys of running a library is all too real for me. Maura Beth Mayhew is the Director for the Public Library in Cherico, Mississippi and the book introduces the audience to her at a time when […]
