Mirror Lake by Juneau Black

Shady Hollow #3 The third in the series, Mirror Lake has been my favorite of the series thus far. I don’t know if there will be more (there is a short story eBook and the review for that will be up tomorrow!), but for now, this is the third and final full book.  Synopsis From… Continue reading Mirror Lake by Juneau Black

Cold Clay by Juneau Black

Shady Hollow #2 Every year, when on a relaxing vacation, I set myself the task of reading a book a day. In order to accomplish this, I tend to keep the books to 250 pages or less. I’d been meaning to finish the Shady Hollow series for awhile and now I had the perfect opportunity!… Continue reading Cold Clay by Juneau Black

Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev

The Rajes #1 This summer I decided that I would read one summer pick from each of my coworkers at the bookstore that I formerly worked at. This one was one of Becky’s picks and I’m always down for a Jane Austen adaptation! Synopsis From the publisher marketing:It is a truth universally acknowledged that only… Continue reading Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev

Portrait of a Scotsman by Evie Dunmore

League of Extraordinary Women #3 And now we have the third in the series, and the first one I read because I’m obsessed with Scotland. I enjoyed this one, but it is ultimately probably my least favorite of the three, mostly for the last few chapters. Synopsis From the publisher marketing:Going toe-to-toe with a brooding… Continue reading Portrait of a Scotsman by Evie Dunmore

A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore

League of Extraordinary Women #2 This one wound up being the third one I read, but my favorite of the three so far. Lucie (and her cat Boudicca) are my favorites from the series thus far and I will certainly be naming my next cat Boudicca in her honor.  Synopsis From the publisher marketing:A lady… Continue reading A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore

Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore

League of Extraordinary Women #1 So I had been waiting to write reviews for the three books in this series until this fall to coincide with the release of the fourth book in the series but it’s now been pushed back. Again. To September of 2023. So before I forget everything that happened in these… Continue reading Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore

Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell

It's another Bridge Street Book Club book! Our meeting was small but we covered a great deal in our discussion! Synopsis From the publisher marketing:Of all the countries the United States invaded or colonized in 1898, Sarah Vowell considers the story of the Americanization of Hawaii to be the most intriguing. From the arrival of… Continue reading Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell

Hester by Laurie Lico Albanese

Hester was sent to me while still in the manuscript stage last October. It’s been a very long time since I read The Scarlet Letter, but given my love of the Emma-Stone-led Easy A, I figured I could do with reading another adaptation. Synopsis From the publisher marketing:Isobel Gamble is a young seamstress carrying generations… Continue reading Hester by Laurie Lico Albanese
