The first time I laid eyes on Bitter Like An Orange Peel I was afraid that it was going to be the first in a long line of “the next” Gone Girls. I was wrong. Jessica Bell has something else entirely in mind.
A Study in Silks takes place in an alternate semi steampunk England where magic is against the law and steam-powered inventions abound. It is a book that I truly wanted to review for I am a certified Sherlockian.
There is something magical about a good romance novel. When I come to the end I always feel so damn happy and I'm smiling like a schoolgirl. I can't help it, I love the "...and they lived happily ever after," moments.
It's been seven years since the "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield was published. I fervently hope that I don't have to wait that long for her next work, because "Bellman & Black" is very good indeed.
This is the book that has something for everyone in it and manages to pull it all into a well written romance novel! Literally, there are demons, pirates, highlanders, and dragons to name just a few!
While I am an eager reader of YA fiction I feel like I must take a moment here to ask you to bear with me. When I first started reading "The Lost Kingdom" by Michael J. Kirby I was finding it to be some rough sledding. Then I discovered that it was written for eight to twelve year olds.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It's short, sweet, and has a plot that holds your attention. I don't like to give away the plot of any new story, I've always believed it is better to be surprised by what the book has to offer. However, this book is obviously from the title about angels being among us.
