Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Review: Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

May 3, 2017 Review 5 ★★★

There is a lot of love surrounding Laurie Faria Stolarz’s books. Both of my friends that do not enjoy reading have read her books and liked them. While I found DEADLY LITTLE SECRET to be entertaining, I think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it when I was younger. One of my biggest issues with this […]

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 24 ★★★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 Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

October 29, 2016 Review 8 ★★★½

Back to the mystery and intrigue One of the things I was worried about was that I would find BLACK HEART as meh as I found RED GLOVE. Fortunately for me, we get more heists and intrigue right from the get go. It was more fast paced than the second book which helped a lot and had less romance angst. […]

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

August 28, 2016 Review 10 ★★★

Second book syndrome or slump? I really enjoyed WHITE CAT but for some reason I never fully connected with RED GLOVE. It may be attributable to a slump I was in at the time, or it may be because I actually didn’t enjoy it as much. It’s difficult to tell and to be honest I think it might be a […]

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 […]
