Audiobook Mini Reviews: The Secret Life of Violet Grant, Tiny Little Thing and Rose Under Fire

My Thoughts: This was my first introduction to this author and I definitely want to read the rest of her backlist! This historical fiction had dual timelines alternating between the early 1900s and 1960s and it was so riveting! We follow Vivian Schuyler as she strives to earn a place as a journalist for the Metropolitan magazine and she receives a mysterious briefcase in the mail. It turns out it belonged to her aunt, Violet Grant, […]

Audiobook Review: Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner

My Thoughts: Wrapping up my audiobook binge of the Queen’s Thief series so far! For some of my other thoughts of the previous books, check them out here! Steve West once again blows things away with his narration — I honestly don’t think I’d have enjoyed these books nearly as much without his narration! It definitely added depth and emotion to the story for me. I enjoyed Thick as Thieves slightly more than some of the previous […]

Review: Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

My Thoughts: I don’t generally gravitate toward the heavier contemporaries. I don’t really know why, I guess because when I read a contemporary I’m looking for something lighter? Anyway, I don’t read heavier ones often, I tend to be pretty picky when it comes to the more serious ones. That being said, I’m really glad I read Letters to the Lost! Juliet’s mother died and she is coping by writing her letters at her grave but who […]
