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 […]

Why Did I Read? I have ONLY been anxiously awaiting this series finale since I read an ARC of The Vanishing Throne back in January of 2016 — it has been a LONG wait, let me just say! My Thoughts: Firstly, I just have to say that I feel like this series is so underrated! It is such an intense, amazing series and I want more people to check it out! There’s historical fiction, action, fae, steampunk and […]

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. […]

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: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Why Did I Read? I’m a big fan of time travel books and so of course, the sound of this one hooked me in! My Thoughts: I am all about time travel and historical fiction so Passenger seemed to be the perfect fit for me! For the most part, I really enjoyed this one! It started off really slowly for me though. There’s a large segment in the beginning where our main character Etta goes back in […]
