Book Review and Blog Tour: A Dastardly Plot + Giveaway

I always enjoy strong female characters and with a world against them, I love to see how they rise above and become more than they could imagine. A Dastardly Plot is one of those stories. Molly is the daughter of an inventor who has not been recognized because of her gender. Since her father passed away, Molly has quit school and sells pickles in order to help her mother have time to invent. When they gain the opportunity to display her flying invention at the World Fair, she thinks all her and her mother’s troubles have ended. Of course, that […]

Book Review and Blog Tour: The Treasure of Mad Doc Magee

Jenny and Pandora are best friends, but very different. Jenny is tough and loud, but Pandora is quiet, lacking humor and full of truth. Together, they discover a treasure map (of a skeleton) that may lead them to a gold nugget which can change their future. Set in New Zealand in the aftermath of the gold rush, there’s an old west feel to the novel. I like the variety in characters, and the depth to each. Each one has dealt with something in their past or present that is hard and I feel that in each character. Our two main characters […]

Book of Shadows by Cate Tie..

Book of Shadows by Cate Tiernan Book Review

This book was such a surprise, I really went into it, not knowing what it was about. It is actually a fiction book about a girl discovering Wicca, which is so up my alley right now. I have been really researching Wicca and getting into it so it was pretty great to read a book about someone else doing the same thing. The writing style in this is very simple but I think it works well since you are learning a lot of things and its nice to have them laid out in simple terms. I also enjoy the main […]

Book Review: A Curious Begi..

Book Review: A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn

This is an extremely intelligent book which is something I love, books that have clever writing and dialogue are my favorite kinds. Our main character is living in Victorian England and she is a scientist who does expeditions aboard to study butterflies. She is a true unique character who I adore completely. Once her aunt dies and her place of residence gets broken into, a baron who knew the mother she had never met implores her to come to London with him for she is in grave danger. She only goes because she had planned on leaving anyways and this […]

Honestly Ben by Bill Konigs..

Honestly Ben by Bill Konigsberg Book Review

Wow just wow. It’s been a while since a book hit me so hard. I read Openly Straight, openly honestly yesterday and then this one today and I love these people with every fiber of my being. Toby is one of the bravest, amazing interesting human I have ever encountered. I also adore Alfie-gaga he is just so unapologetically himself and I totally see why him and Toby are best friends. I would die for a book about the two of them just playing scanner pong and Toby learning more about his gender-fluidness. I of course adore Ben and Rafe, […]

Dress codes for Small Towns..

Dress codes for Small Towns Book Review

This book did a great job of developing the characters, and making the reader love them just as much as the main character does. The friendship dynamic in this is to die for and I envy Billie so much. I have never really had very close friendships in my life especially not to the extent as the characters in this book and I really enjoyed that while I was reading this book I almost felt a part of their group. I really love the way they get each other, like they will be talking and the other will say something […]
