My Review Boneseeker was far different than I had anticipated.  I have never been big into Sherlock Holmes, but I love mysteries and this seemed like something new and different, something outside of my usual reads. The story centers around Arabella Holmes and Henry Watson, the children of the famed Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. […]

My Review When I received Cinderella’s Dress, I imagined a fairy tale,  WWII-style.  I assumed that the protagonist Kate was going to be a more modern-day Cinderella.  The blurb for it called Kate “the next keeper of the dress” but I guess I thought that was another way of creating a new kind of Cinderella in […]

My Review As much as I enjoyed the first book in this series, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, I think I loved this one even more!  This installment focused in Alessandra, Cat’s “cousin”  from 16th century Florence, Italy.  Less dreams of a life of less restriction and more freedom, something that is hard to come by […]

My Review This was my first read from author Rachel Harris and it was fantastic!  There was a little  bit of everything in this book… swoon-worthy romance, fabulous characters, humor, and conflict.  There is a little bit of the contemporary right alongside the historical and the blend of both creates a mystical story that I […]

My Review I really loved the first book in this series, Oracle of  Philadelphia, and I think I loved this one even more!  For once, I was grateful for my inability to sleep at night because it gave me that much more time to read.  I couldn’t put it down and was sad when it was […]

My Review Morning’s Journey is the sequel to Dawnflight and my favorite of the two!  This series is an epic tale of Arthurian mythology.  What I love most about this series is that the characters are created in new ways.  The cast of characters are those with whom all lovers of Arthurian literature are familiar, but […]

My Review I have always been a fan of Arthurian tales, loving the rich mythology of the time.  Dawnflight, first in a continuing epic series, brings together Gyan and Arthur.  All of the legendary characters are present in this novel, but they were “created” in a whole different way.  Headlee’s retelling speaks of possible reality, […]

Oracle of Philadelphia

Oracle of Philadelphia

My Review Oracle of Philadelphia is the debut novel from author Elizabeth Corrigan and the first in the Earthbound Angels series.  I have read a few books lately with the “angels and demons” theme and I love that this book was still refreshing and new and completely unique with its take on Christian mythology.  Carrie, as […]

My Review This was a great book that hit just about every emotion on the scale!  Historical fiction isn’t generally one of my preferred genres, but this was really a blend of both historical and contemporary times.  Lou and Tammy head to Scotland for the holidays on what was a working trip for Tammy.  Lou […]

My Review Lost was unlike anything I have read before.  It tells the story of Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother in a completely new and unexpected way.  It is told in diary format and was a creative way to tell the story.  Frankly, even though it deviates from the original, I liked it far better.  Tons […]
