Book Review : A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting

Book Review : A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting

I have a lot going on in my life right now and I needed a light and fluffy read, especially after my frustrations with Iron Flame, and A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting is exactly that—and fun, too. I was hooked from the very first page, enjoying this Austen-esque work with a more modern lens, and which unfolds at a comfortable pace.   Main character Kitty Dashwood, er, Talbot, is the […]

Book Review : Poison Study

In a nutshell, Iron Widow reads worse than some Wattpad stories, and despite having a good core […]

Book Review : Sorcery of Thorns

Book Review : Sorcery of Thorns

I absolutely love Sorcery of Thorns and it is one of my all time favorite books. Even with this second reading of the novel, I adore the setting, the magic system, the three main characters, the romance, the humor, and the plot. Sorcery of Thorns revolves around main character Elisabeth, an orphan who grew up in a Great Library, who gets wrapped up in a conspiracy that could destroy everything […]
