The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner

I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of historical fiction, but I can say that I am a huge fan of Jane Austen!  Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books of all time!  So when I saw there was going to be a novel about the creation of society to preserve Austen’s legacy, … Continue reading The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner

An ode to… The Hunger Games

As a teen librarian, I often read books in which I’m not particularly interested.  I do this to be sure I have well rounded knowledge so I can recommend books for any child, regardless if they are my cup of tea or not.  I also read the popular stuff because, inevitably, I will have students … Continue reading An ode to… The Hunger Games

An ode to… Madeline Miller

About a week ago (or so), I had the luxury of attending a Facebook interview with Madeline Miller and a light bulb went off above my head.  YES!  Madeline Miller!  I love her books, I should blog about her.  I mean, I have never read a better book that combines my love of a good … Continue reading An ode to… Madeline Miller

An ode to… Kevin Kwan

Well Kevin Kwan is back! Well, I guess I should say that Kevin Kwan hasn't gone anywhere, but he's coming out with a new book which is super exciting for me! Haven't read his other books? Boy are you missing out. His first book, Crazy Rich Asians was such a riot! Seriously. I loved it … Continue reading An ode to… Kevin Kwan

Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Given all that's going in the world today, I have been reading a lot of light-hearted romantic comedies. I mean, A LOT. One of the best I’ve come across recently is Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon. I was lucky enough to read this as an eARC (Thanks, Edelweiss) since it isn't set to … Continue reading Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

And with this post, I achieve the hat trick of royal book reviews!  The tic-tac-toe, if you will. The trifecta!  I never intended to write these three in a row.  But, I have read an awful lot of royal books and after reviewing RWRB by Casey McQuiston, Majesty by Katharine McGee, I would be remiss … Continue reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Majesty by Katharine McGee

I never thought I'd be here writing this particular review. This book has been a complete surprise to me, for many reasons. Firstly, can you believe that I've read 54 books that I would classify as "royalty?" When I finished this book, I thought it would be useful to have a dedicated Goodreads shelf for … Continue reading Majesty by Katharine McGee

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Best book of 2019!! Let me lay the scene for you:   My birthday, 2019.   My present from Mr. Librarian: as many books as I want.   The locale:  Politics and Prose in Washington DC.   Truthfully, I’m not one to just buy books.  I’m only able to support my serious reading habit by checking out all the … Continue reading Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center

(Left: Original Cover, Right: New Cover - releasing in Sept 2020) Wow.  What a beautiful story. I loved it so much that it got one of my elusive 5-star ratings on Goodreads.   Side note: I should probably, at some point, explain my Goodreads rating system, but suffice it to say that in order to receive … Continue reading Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center

An ode to… Gail Carriger

A Finishing School where the ladies become spies? An organization of like-minded humans, supernaturals and metanaturals defending the innocent and wearing only the most fashionable accessories at the same time? A ladybug painted dirigible that travels the world searching for and protecting new supernaturals unheard about in the British Empire? Ah, yes. An ode to … Continue reading An ode to… Gail Carriger
