It’s a Quickie! Reviews for Princess of Thorns and A School for Unusual Girls

I’m slowly getting caught up on all the fabulous books I read while my blog was down. Even though these are quick reviews, it’s my chance to make sure you notice these books for those times when you’re standing in front of the stacks at the library and you have no clue what you want to read. OR, better yet, put them on your Amazon wishlist and watch out for those price drops!

Review: The Conquering Dark by Clay and Susan Griffith

I freakin’ bawled my eyes out when I finished reading this final book in the Crown and Key trilogy. Heads up people – if you want to read this series, start at book one, The Shadow Revolution, and don’t skip book two, The Undying Legion. Only then will you properly and fully enjoy the complete experience of the Crown and Key trilogy (*cue the John Williams music*).

Historical romances and I have a tenuous relationship. For a long time I resisted getting wrapped up in this genre of books. I’ve had less than good luck with them in the past.

Review: A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard

I absolutely adore this series. Okay, I might be a wee bit biased because Susan Dennard is one of the coolest authors in the entire world. I’ve met and chatted with her and she is so incredibly down to earth normal it’s sick. And is she adorable or what?! Yeah, yeah, she’s a Michigan author, what are you going to do about it? Let me spew her greatness for a few sentences and I’ll get to the review eventually…

Review: The Ring and The Crown by Melissa de la Cruz

The Ring and The Crown was one of those stories that reminded me of grand Merchant Ivory-type period films like Howard’s End or Sense and Sensibility; so many small stories weaving together to make up the greater plot, full of tragic circumstances, lost chances, hopes, failures, and lots of surprises. If you like historical soap operas, you’ll love this one.
