A Dangerous Collaboration By: Deanna Raybourn

I’ve been a fan of Deanna Raybourn since her Lady Julia Gray series. She is a fantastic storyteller and this was no disappointment. I devoured this latest Victoria Speedwell mystery, I think it was my favorite so far. The mystery was intriguing, complete with a creepy castle, terrible weather, seances and romance. The chemistry between the characters was brilliantly done. I loved every minute of this book and the only sad thing is, now I have to wait even longer for the next one! I think I will read anything Deanna Raybourn writes and love it.

Sense and Sensibility by: Jane Austen Manga Version

Beautiful artwork and wonderfully rendered. I love manga and I love Sense and Sensibility, so this one was an obvious delight. The story was wonderfully crafted, with all the important plot points displayed accurately. I enjoyed the depiction of the characters and the pacing of the story. I truly enjoy that this was made into a manga and I hope to enjoy more classics like this in the future.

Uneasy Lies the Crown By: Tasha Alexander

Tasha Alexander has done it again. Even after this many Lady Emily mysteries, each book is amazingly written, complicatedly plotted and completely absorbing. I absolutely love that there is still an interesting romance between Emily and Colin and the loving family atmosphere. The mystery was intriguing and kept me guessing until the end. There is also another story line that moves along with the usual mystery, one of a knight and his wife. I also really enjoyed that and it mixed well into the story. Overall, I am very happy with this and hope that Tasha Alexander keeps writing Lady Emily books.

Jane Eyre – Manga Classics

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite stories. I also love manga, so this was exciting for me. I absolutely loved it. Everything was completely true to the story and it was so well done. The artwork was beautiful and expressive and made the story flow perfectly. This was a great new way to enjoy a favorite classic. Every important part of the story was there, perfectly encapsulated in the manga format. It was easy to get used to reading it right to left and I was swept along in the story and drawings. I will definitely be reading more manga classics, this was a fun, fresh take on a classic.

Manga Classics: Jane Eyre

The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton

Kate Morton is an author whose books I will always automatically read. Her writing is magical, her descriptions capable of completely transporting you to another time in place. Her books evoke intense emotions and let you truly feel what the characters are going through. This book was no disappointment. The various points of view kept the story fresh and the mystery intense. The jumps in time weren’t confusing and she kept me guessing the entire time about what would happen and what happened in the past. She is a masterful storyteller with a vivid imagination and I will continue to read any book she writes.

The Clockmaker's Daughter: A Novel

The Iron Flower by: Laurie Forest

I loved this book. I enjoyed it more than the first. The characters developed magnificently along with the plot. The author did an amazing job of making everything seem hopeless, but the characters are resilient and strong, doing their best to overcome even the most difficult obstacles. The romance was beautiful and the descriptions perfect. The world was intriguing and what I enjoyed and found a little bit worrying was how relevant this book is. The author shows how terrible the world is when racism is dominant. How everything gets torn apart through prejudice, judgment and assumptions. This book shows the importance of acceptance, friendship and love. It was a thrilling, beautifully written novel and I cant wait for the third installment!

Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom By: Leigh Bardugo

I can’t honestly remember if I already reviewed Six of Crows or not. But either way, I’ll just do it again. After having absolutely loved Leigh Bardugo’s other series, I was excited to try this one. At first I wasn’t quite sure what to think. The characters in the story were so varied, so different from her other books. Also, none of them are quite decent people.So at first it was strange for me to connect with them, but it didn’t take long before I fell in love with the story anyway. The characters were flawed, realistically so. They were by no means perfect, but it made them endearing and I came to love them all. I read through the first book quickly and then had to wait that dreadfully long year for the next one, which I snatched up.

The second book has a marvelous cover and red around the edges, which at first I though would be distracting but it really wasn’t. This book was better than the first and just so full! The characters developed immensely, the romances were believable and greatly done, and the story progressed in such a way that was unpredictable and kept me reading non-stop. I’m very excited for the next book and any other books from this author! Also there were lots of feels!

Read these books guys, dooo it.
