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 […]

Claimed by Tarah Scott

I am not ashamed to admit, I love—er, enjoy reading romance novels. I guess it’s because it soothes the raging cynic in me, who is more inclined to read about practical topics such as Science, Finance, and celebrity melt-downs. I don’t really care for the “boy-meets-girl” context of most romance novels. I’m more interested in […]

Helen of Sparta by Amalia Carosella

I love Greek mythologies! I love mythologies in general. The epic tales of heroes, monsters, magic, and trials are what Hollywood movies hope to recreate, visually. (Obviously I am on the “book” side of the book vs. movie debate) My prejudice aside, the story of Helen is not a new one. There are different versions/interpretations […]

Timeless by Gail Carriger

It’s over already?! Good things MUST come to an end…I guess. As much as I am saddened by the realization that the adventures of Aleixia Tarabotti is really over, I’m equally glad that I’ll be able to sleep before dawn because the series was “that” good! Timeless may be the final book of the series […]

Heartless by Gail Carriger

In all of the books, Heartless clearly illustrates Aleixia finally settling in to her social and political roles in Victorian London. Despite her ever increasing girth, Lady Maccon—mujah, female Alpha of Woolsey, and close friend of the fabulous Lord Akledama—continues to waddle around London investigating an assassination plot against the Queen. But first she has […]

Ranger’s Apprentice: The Burning Bridge By John Flanagan

It should not have taken me THIS long to finish this book. I have a full time job and I’m reading other three books because I like to think because I can. But I quickly realized that when it comes to books my attention span shortens similar to a fruit fly’s life span. Me neglecting […]

Changeless by Gail Carriger

The adventures of Alexia Tarrabotti, now Lady Maccon, continues in this second book and it picks up where Soulless ended—after the wedding. It has been three months since Aleixia and her beastly beau tied the knot with the endorsement of the Queen—for political reasons—and her insufferable mother. I have to credit Aleixia for not lashing […]

Soulless by Gail Carriger

I often wonder what kind of world would it be if the dark creatures of the night (vampires, werewolves and ghosts—mummies?) lived among us—the normal, fragile, meat-bags mortals. Well for one thing—the current pop obsession over suave vampires that glitter in the sun and the insanely ripped werewolves would probably never make it on television […]

The Sultan’s Harem by Colin Falconer

I had this friend in high school who vented his problems out to me almost every week—usually Mondays. And 98% of the time the problem is his girlfriend or something involving her. After the umpteenth time of him complaining, I just had to ask him the obvious question: “Why are you still with her?” His […]
