REVIEW: Elinor

“…these people showed more fruits of being true followers of God than those in England who attended church faithfully and quoted scriptures…” ————————– I am completely obsessed with early colonial America, especially the lost colony of Roanoke… honestly I’ll read anything that deals with the topic. Elinor is the story of the first governor ofContinue reading “REVIEW: Elinor”

REVIEW: Master of Sorrows

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Master of Sorrows last year and it was such a brick that I got intimidated and couldn’t quite pluck up the courage to dive into it. But then I saw it was included with my Audible membership so I decided it was time, plus the sequelContinue reading “REVIEW: Master of Sorrows”

REVIEW: The Singles Table

I really enjoyed Sara Desai’s The Dating Plan when I read it last year, she has a way of writing refreshing contemporary romance stories with substance. They’re full of strong, quirky characters who have depth and always a reason to fight the urge to fall in love. The Singles Table fits right in with thatContinue reading “REVIEW: The Singles Table”

☁️ REVIEW: Cloud Cuckoo Land â˜ï¸

Oh my, I was so surprised by how much I loved this daunting book. It’s huge and full of different characters and different timelines and I LOVED it all. I think this may be a contender for my favorite book of the year and may be one of my favorite books of all time. I readContinue reading “☁️ REVIEW: Cloud Cuckoo Land â˜ï¸”

Pub Day Review: REVIEW: A Spell of Rowans

“My mother, the witch from a fairytale with no happy ending.” ———————————- A Spell of Rowans is more of a murder mystery and family drama than a book about witches and magic. It reminded me in a lot of ways of The Family Plot. The Rowans are an unusual family in a small town andContinue reading “Pub Day Review: REVIEW: A Spell of Rowans”

REVIEW: At the Edge of the Haight

At the Edge of the Haight follows a homeless woman after she discovers a dead body in the park. We see her threatened by the perpetrator, bullied by the cops and her homeless cohorts about the issue. We get a glimpse of life on the streets, how each of the characters came to live theContinue reading “REVIEW: At the Edge of the Haight”

Pub Day Review: Within these Wicked Walls

“You’re a surprisingly slow learner, Andromeda.” “Quick learner,” I said, my mind too tired to keep an annoyed bite from peeking through. “Slow follower.” ————————————- Within these Wicked Walls is THE PERFECT read for spooky season. Andromeda is a debtera, an Ethiopian exorcist, who is desperately trying to earn a patronage so that she canContinue reading “Pub Day Review: Within these Wicked Walls”

REVIEW: The Gilded Cage

Lynette Noni knocked this sequel out of the park. I had such high hopes because I LOVED The Prison Healer, so I was super nervous going into The Gilded Cage that the magic would be gone. It turns out it’s only gone because Kiva wanted it to be (IYKYK) :-P. It’s hard to review withoutContinue reading “REVIEW: The Gilded Cage”

REVIEW: The Spirit Engineer

“Oh, Darwin, Darwin, Darwin,’ said Stoupe. ‘The very enemy of magic himself. Very well then, perhaps not butterflies but even Mr Darwin would struggle to explain where we go when we die. He might be up there now, in fact, sitting on a wooly mammoth and thinking himself a perfect clown.” —————————- This book intriguedContinue reading “REVIEW: The Spirit Engineer”
