Last week was pretty sparse reviews-wise but this week I’m planning my regular 4 reviews per week, which will bring the review count up to 499. That means that next Monday (the 14th) will be a very special review for review #500.
- A review of Angeline by Karleen Bradford. I vaguely remember reading this and liking it several years ago so when I saw it at the local library I couldn’t pass it up. Is it as good as I remember it was? Probably not, but it’s still nice to dive into your childhood favourites with a new perspective.
- A review of The Recruit by Fiona Palmer. I was approached by a publisher to read this book and although contemporary YA really isn’t my thing I decided to give it a try. So far, so good. It has a lot of potential and I’m anxious to see how the story turns out.
A review of Blades of Magic by Terah Edun. If you’ll remember, I loved Terah Edun’s debut series so I’m very eager to get started on this spin-off prequel series. It will be interesting to see what really happened during the Initiate Wars whose aftereffects cause Ciardis much grief in the Courtlight series. Apparently this one is going to be a trilogy, so there’s lots to look forward to from Terah Edun in the coming year!
A review of The Secret Eleanor by Cecelia Holland. This one has been on my TBR pile for months and I’ve finally decided to get off my butt and work through the pile. I’m not very familiar with Eleanor of Aquitaine but from what little I’ve read I can guarantee that if nothing else, The Secret Eleanor will be a very interesting story!
- Book Blast: The Towers of Tuscany by Carol M. Cram
- Discussion: Re-reading Childhood Favourites. Are you like me and re-read some of your favourite books from when you were a child? Or do you tend to avoid doing that out of the fear of learning they really weren’t all that good to begin with?
