Book Review: Fatal Throne: The Wives of Henry VIII Tell All
I loved this book.  When I read the description of Fatal Throne: The Wives of Henry VII Tell All ,  I was a bit apprehensive.  The book is written by several different authors in short story form, and I'm not usually a fan of short stories.  Although there ...

Book Review: The Cruel Prince, by Holly Black @hollyblack ‏
It has been a while since I've read a book by Holly Black.  I'm hesitant about fairy books.  Much of the time they are too "magically convenient" for me.  But I found The Cruel Prince  to be very compelling. Jude and her twin sister Taryn are stolen away at...

Book Review: Anne of Green Gables, by L. M. Montgomery
What an absolute delight Anne of Green Gables  is.  I had thought I read this book when I was young, but now I don't think so. (I'm sure I would have remembered it.) You would think a novel that was written over 100 years ago would be wordy and difficult an...

Skyjack  kept my interest and had a pretty scary premise.  The plot, however, was a bit difficult for me to follow at times. Thea is a hostage rescue expert working for a company called Quantum. An airplane she is on is hijacked, and Thea must work to save ...

Book Review: The Window, by Amelia Brunskill @ameliab
The Window is a twisty mystery that kept me guessing until the very end. Jess's twin sister, Anna, falls to her death from her bedroom window.  Jess thought that Anna told her everything, but perhaps there was a lot going on that Jess didn't know about. Eve...

Book Review: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Not being a big mythology fan, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed The Song of Achilles . The Song of Achilles  is sort of a retelling of the Iliad--the Trojan War, Oedipus, and of course, the story of Achilles. The story is told from the unique perspecti...
