Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. This week I can’t wait […]

Clawback by J.A. Jance

First Impressions Clawback by J.A. Jance felt like it had been ripped from a 48 hours episode. With a financial scandal that ends in murder the reader can only expect twists and turns. Impressions While Reading Like in 48 Hours, the viewer always has an inkling of the outcome as the suspect is only interviewed […]

Mata Hari’s Last Dance by Michelle Moran

First Impressions My knowledge of Mara Hari extended to her profession as an exotic dancer. It seemed a bit one-dimensional at first.  Although, Michelle Moran always excels at expanding the lives of historical figures.  Thus plowed right in, preparing myself for Fantine’s “I dreamed a dream”. Impressions While Reading I need not have worried. Margaretha […]

Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance

First Impressions Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance is the second Ali Reynolds novel I have read and like a good wine the series gets better with age.

Rebel Queen by Michelle Moran

Fond Of Previously I had only read Michelle Moran’s novels that were set in Egypt. Asps, Pharaohs and Pyramids has always been an era that interests me. I suppose it is comfortable to stick with what you know. Nevertheless, I enjoy Moran’s writing style and become lost in her stories. Therefore, when I saw Rebel […]

Book Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

Fond of: I thought The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet was a nice, modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.  Even though I know it was based on The Secret Diaries of Lizzie Bennet YouTube series it was still a little reminiscent of Disney’s Lizzie Maguire.  I also liked how the author incorporated places into this retelling. […]

Review: Ember Island

When my grandmother was a child she had a doll.  She was playing with this doll while work was being done on her home.  She set her toy down but when she returned it had been walled in, never to be seen again.  This what first came to mind upon the discovery of Nell’s Diary. […]
