Book Review: The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue was a smash hit last year, and the sequel has been getting so much attention and hype. I really enjoyed the first book, although the fantasy elements threw me off a bit. Rather than following our beloved Monty and Percy, The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy follows Monty's younger sister Felicity.  Felicity was my favourite character in the first book and I was so thrilled to hear she was getting her own book. Lady's Guide was so hyped for me and I have to say that it more than lived up to my expectations.

Book Review: The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory

Despite living in the UK now, I’m not a huge Royal Family person. However, I’ve always loved a good princess story and grew up on Disney films. The Royal Runaway sounded like my exact cup of tea -- like The Princess Diaries, but all grown up. I threw myself into Theodora’s world and drank it up.

Discussion: Underrated Books

In the blogging community, we talk about books all the time.  But sometimes we get caught up in reading and reviewing the same books as everyone else, and great books can slip beneath our radar.  I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about a few books I really loved, but I think are underrated in the blogging community.

Book Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Sadie is a book that is getting a whole lot of buzz right now. A dark contemporary YA novel centered around a sister going after her sister’s suspected killer and the true crime podcast inspired by Sadie and Mattie, this book is the perfect 2018 novel. I absolutely love true crime podcasts and was really interested to see how this would translate into a printed format. I heard about the incredible audiobook after I purchased the hardcover edition. While I liked Sadie a lot, I feel like the audiobook is going to give the reader a different, and perhaps better, experience.

Book Review: Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

Horror is a genre that I just don't read very often.  I never know where to start, what books I'll like, and what wont scare me half to death. Sawkill Girls caught my eye way back at YALC in July because of its fantastic cover and intriguing premise. Billed as a YA horror novel filled with girl power, I was immediately interested but didn’t really know what to expect.  Having finished the book, this is really one that you should try for yourself -- I can see so many readers having dramatically different opinions on it. I’m not sure how helpful my review will be for others  -- it’s one of those books that will appeal to one’s personal tastes so strongly.
