Review: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee

Why Did I Read? I had heard a lot of early praise for it from some fellow bloggers! I was intrigued! My Thoughts: I really like historical fiction and this was such a fun filled romp with Monty and this friends! I like to think of it as… a 17th century spin on the movie Eurotrip with a more serious note. (Has anyone else seen that movie? It’s hilarious, a bit ridiculous but lots of fun […]

Audiobook Mini Reviews: Timekeeper by Tara Sims and Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

I really didn’t know much about Timekeeper going into it but oh I was so pleasantly surprised as I got swept up in this story! It ended up being my FIRST five star read of the year! I’m also so glad I listened to it on audio because the narration was so amazing! I seriously loved it. In Timekeeper we are in an alternate London where there are clock towers that regulate time — literally. If something happens […]

The book starts off with our main character Lada as a young child growing up — we see that from a young age she is already fierce, strong and determined. […]

Audiobook Review: Front Lines by Michael Grant

The Sound: I really liked this narrator! I thought she did a great job for each POV that we were in. No complaints here! The Story: I really thought I’d like this one more than I actually did. It takes place in an alternate history where women are allowed to fight in WWII. Firstly, I love historical fiction. Secondly, this premise sounds awesome! The story is told in three different POV. One is a naive girl […]

Review: Falconer by Elizabeth May

Why Did I Read? Okay so when I first heard about The Falconer coming out a few years ago, I was so excited and wouldn’t stop talking about it. So much so that Betty was super nice and snagged a copy for me when she was at ALAMW that year (thank you!) And guess what. I JUST now read it. Major fail on my part! My Thoughts: I have finally found a new series to fall in love with! […]
