ARC Book Review: The Cat King of Havana by Tom Crosshill

ARC Book Review: The Cat King of Havana by Tom Crosshill

Book Reviews | September 6, 2016

I picked up The Cat King of Havana for one simple and perhaps shallow reason: I’m going to Cuba in November. And I know basically nothing about the island, the culture, the history, and only bits and pieces about the political situation. What better way to get a taste of all of that than through fiction? Well, The […]

ARC Book Review: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

ARC Book Review: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Book Reviews | March 6, 2016

“Modern Sherlock retelling.” At the moment, it doesn’t take much more than that to get me salivating over a book. And I know that there is some skepticism if it could ever be done any better than the Every series by Ellie Marney, and whether people should even bother trying anymore. Well I absolutely loved Cavallaro’s take on […]

ARC Book Review: Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliott

ARC Book Review: Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliott

Book Reviews | October 29, 2015

I love art, historical fiction, and Renaissance Italy – so how could I possibly resist Da Vinci’s Tiger? With a premise that evoked loving memories of Sharon Biggs Waller’s A Mad, Wicked Folly – arguably my favorite historical fiction title to date – this book shot up to the top of my to read list. And I am […]

ARC Book Review: Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

ARC Book Review: Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix

Book Reviews | October 3, 2015

I’m a sucker for all things gender bending, so when I heard that Newt’s Emerald would be using this beloved trope in a regency historical setting with bonus magic, I was immediately excited. Not to mention, the author, Garth Nix, is somewhat of a legend – one I had yet to experience. Overall, I enjoyed this book, but […]

ARC Book Review: The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

Book Reviews | June 2, 2014

I’m going to be upfront with you guys and let you know that I did not have particularly high expectations for this book. I actually traded for this ARC with Mel because she had no interest in reading it, and I thought, why not. I thought it would be an easy-to-read, easily digestible romance. Probably corny. The synopsis […]

ARC Book Review: Exile by Kevin Emerson

ARC Book Review: Exile by Kevin Emerson

Book Reviews | April 23, 2014

I absolutely adore music and books involving music (i.e. This Song Will Save Your Life) – so when I heard of Exile, all about music, band management, and a promising romance, it went on my must read list. Sadly, this book is just a blend of meh for me. Summer is an aspiring band manager who just got […]

ARC Book Review: Rush by Eve Silver

ARC Book Review: Rush by Eve Silver

Book Reviews | June 1, 2013

I don’t even really know where to start. Maybe just with this: you know it’s a bad sign when you’re reading a book and rolling your eyes every other page. The overall reading experience of Rush was one filled with annoyance. And while the concept may have still delivered to a certain extent, I cannot honestly say that I […]
