5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 22 ★★★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. As a fan of science, I love seeing how it’s used to solve things without modern advancements. The vet side of me also loves the autopsies and science things. I’m a […]

5 Things About And I Darken by Kiersten White

August 20, 2016 Review 20 ★★★★½

AND I DARKEN was great. Honestly the perfect writing style for historical novels, or even historical based fantasies. I’ll be checking out White’s fantasy books soon and […]

3 Things About Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

3 Things About Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

May 10, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★

“Was it harder to die, or harder to be the one who survived?” Boy, did I go into this one unaware. Ruta Sepetys was a familiar name due to the hype surrounding SALT TO THE SEA. When I was at the library the other day I saw BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY and decided to pick it up after hearing so […]

5 Things About Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

5 Things About Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

April 28, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★

Girl disguised as boy trope HELLO ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TROPES EVER! I seriously can’t get enough of these stories. Some are better than others and I must say WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER was pretty good. For one thing Lee had to actually deal with her period while on the road with other people! This is a big dilemma […]
