ARC Book Review: Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown

ARC Book Review: Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown

Historical fiction is the genre that I’ve been trying to delve into much more this year. This paired with a fondness for (at least the idea of) spy thrillers, as soon as I heard about Velvet Undercover, I was excited. A teenage spy sent into Germany from the UK during World War I? Color me intrigued. This book was entertaining… but not exactly mindblowing. I’ll start with my biggest point of critique and the thing that kept this book from ever really engaging me fully: the writing. I have this thing with historical fiction – especially those set in Britain or with British characters. I […]

Most Wanted: October 2015

Most Wanted: October 2015

October always seems to be an EPIC month for new book releases. I have like 6 pre-ordered already, and my wallet is basically CRYING. But I’m excited anyway, so STFU wallet!

I had so many feelings. And I love its depiction of OCD because damn. Ness is probably turning out to be one of my favorite authors. The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan: I was the tiniest bit […]

Top Ten Books on My Fall 2015 TBR List

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Ha. Haha. Remember when I said on my summer TBR that I should make the whole list, because I had less review copies? Well I lied. I did have plenty of review copies and plenty of tougher reads which meant that I read much more slowly. I failedddd. 6/10. Here’s hoping fall goes better. I’m at least trying to be more realistic. From My Shelf 1 – 3. Every Breath, Every Word, and Every Move by Ellie Marney: A repeat from the last list – but […]

Book Haul #26: The One with the Most Exciting ARC Ever

Book Haul #26: The One with the Most Exciting ARC Ever

My last book haul was so small, and I was so proud of it… and then this happened. BUT TO BE FAIR – it was my birthday. So I can blame my far-too-generous friends (>.>) and at the end of the day I *only* bought 7 books this month. …I’m not sure I’m making this any better, but whatever, just go check out the berrrrks. Purchased Maid-sama!, volume 1 & 2 by Fujiwara Hiro: Yeah, this is different – I bought a manga. But this also should be obvious because this is one of my top three favorite mangas of all time – I even […]
