Meh

MY THOUGHTS I've seen this book around, but never picked it up because of the awkward cover. I saw it at a cheap book sale, though, so I figured "why not?". I probably could've done without reading this book. It wasn't horrible. It's your typical dystopian, but it was...

Not the Thriller I was Expecting

MY THOUGHTS I piked this book up sort of impulsively at a cheap used book sale. I didn't really know much about this book except that it's a thriller. I was a bit disappointed, it wasn't as actiony as I expected, but it was very interesting! ...

Oddly Fun and Entertaining Paranormal

MY THOUGHTS This isn't a new premise for me. I love ghosty books and I've read many where a main character moved to a new home and falls for a ghost. In fact, I've read a few that have also taken place in Scotland. Many of these books have...

Not as Amazing as Falling Kingdoms, But Definitely Worth the Read

MY THOUGHTS I adore the Falling Kingdoms series, so I definitely wasn't about to miss out on a spin-off series! I don't love this as much as Falling Kingdoms, but this was a brilliant start to a new series and I can't wait to read the next book!...

Okay, but Beware of Insta-love

MY THOUGHTS This wasn't a bad book, but it just didn't click with me and ultimately, it's forgettable. Amelia is staying in Baltimore with family for the spring. She's supposed to be finding marriage opportunities and courting, as well as be in society. But a discovery...
