Book Review: Air Awakens

Book Review: Air Awakens

Air Awakens was a book I was excited for because magic and libraries are my thing. Yet, something was way off in this book. Vhalla is a bit of a pushover character. She falls too easily for the moody prince, she can’t seem to say no to the old best friend who wants to be her boyfriend and even the pushy brother character seem to easily mold her to do what HE wants her to. And let’s talk about these love interests – they’re not great guys. They’re not bad but they are definitely thinking they know what is best […]

Book Review: On Little Wing..

Book Review: On Little Wings

On Little Wings was a fantastic read. I don’t always enjoy a lot of realistic fiction, but I love a good one when I find one. Jennifer didn’t realize she has an aunt until a picture falls out of a one of her mother’s books. What follows is a decision to find out more about her and why the two sisters are estranged. More than just a family history story, this is a story of first loves and full of interesting characters who I fell in love with. I love the chemistry between all the characters and especially in the […]

House of Salt and Sorrow Bo..

House of Salt and Sorrow Book Review

I didn’t know anything going into this book. I found the way the 12 dancing princesses fairy-tale was interwoven rather subtle for the first half of the book and I really loved the way it kinda starts dawning on you as you read. I like the way the narration is done and that for a while you become unsure if you trust what you are being told as fact or fiction. The bonds between the sisters are fun to watch unfold and to understand their past as our main character is also finding out more about stuff. I also really […]

Book Review: The Secret Gar..

Book Review: The Secret Garden

  Rereading The Secret Garden, I had forgotten how much I loved this book and movie growing up. It’s such a horrible tale of loss and learning to recover from loss. I listened to it on audio and it really captured the moments of the children as they grew up and realized things about themselves. It’s definitely one of those stories that is timeless even as it is set in an era that kids are not familiar with. I love how Mary transforms throughout the book and learns from her new experiences. Verdict: A wonderful children’s classic that all should […]

Romanov Book Review

Romanov Book Review

At first I wasn’t sure that I was going to continue reading this book because the beginning is rather slow and a bit confusing. Everything is much clearer by about 50 pages in I would say and that’s when my interest was caught. This is the story of the royal Romanov family that was held hostage in a small house for months. I really enjoyed the character of the tsar, his selfless and the way he loved his people and family was incredible. Our main character got on my nerves quite a bit but I did love her fighting spirit. […]

Book Review: Passenger

Book Review: Passenger

Passenger was a very slow read and one that at times towards the end got a bit confusing as the time travel started to get a bit out of control. I really liked getting to know our two main characters, Etta who is a violinist and has to learn about all this time travel stuff without preparation. Nicholas is a sailor who wants his freedom from this family, but cannot quite grab hold of. He is also black and suffers injustice in many of the time periods that he travels to. I liked the premise, but it took a long […]
