Book Review! JANE EYRE by: Charlotte Bronte

This may be a bit of a cheat since it is a classic and one I’ve read before, but I also haven’t touched it in more than fifteen years and wanted to see if it would still fit my adolescent view of it. But, also, it was truly one of the first books to popContinue reading “Book Review! JANE EYRE by: Charlotte Bronte”

Book Review! THE HIDDEN LEGACY by: Christine Rees

  One of the things that bothers me most (and, sadly, I’ve come across this in many stories) is that they start in the wrong place OR in a very boring place. Unfortunately when that happens, I almost immediately check out mentally/emotionally and it is hard for me to connect with the characters and theirContinue reading “Book Review!

Book Review! APPETITES & VICES by: Felicia Grossman

Romance is my genre, full stop. I love nearly every sub genre of it, but historical romance is one I read with caution. There are many times it will fall either into the “so historical it lags” category or the “so modern it isn’t believable” side. Appetites & Vices is NEITHER of these, folks. ItContinue reading “Book Review! APPETITES & VICES by: Felicia Grossman”
