5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 7 ★★★½

Steampunk Gallagher Girls Gallagher Girls was one of my favourite books when I was in high school, and when I first heard of this, the whole finishing school for spies thing, I immediately thought about Gallagher Girls. Lucky for me, what I expected is what I got! The spy lessons don’t take the forefront of the plot, but they’re mentioned […]

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

February 23, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★½

Victorian Era Forensics If I’m going to read a crime novel, it’s going to be a historical one! Victorian and regency eras in particular seem to be my favourites.

Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

March 12, 2016 Review 32 ★★★

After reading and enjoying PASSENGER and reading and disliking INTO THE DIM, my patience with time travel books was wearing thin. Luckily, THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE brought in a few new aspects that held my interest. Given a map, Nix and her father can sail to any place at any time. However, not a lot of traveling actually happens in the plot. Nix’s father is obsessed with obtaining the one map that will reunite him with his lost love, and much of the book focuses on him in Honolulu trying to find this map. Read more »

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club

January 14, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★

The build is slow Patience grasshopper. I was expecting THE DARK DAYS CLUB to have a slow build from seeing blogging friends reading it and from my experience of reading Alison Goodman’s other book, EON. The time is taken to establish the world and characters at a slow, but not entirely unreasonable, pace. Little bits and pieces are sown into […]
