ARC REVIEW: This Broken Wondrous World by Jon Skovron

I didn’t realize this was the second book in a series when I got it for review. Otherwise, I would have read Skovron’s Man Made Boy before diving into TBWW.   This book was like reading a graphic novel for me- something completely out of my comfort zone and my predictable preferences.

A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller

It’s almost been a year since I read this book, but I can’t let the New Year ring in without reviewing it because A Mad, Wicked Folly was one of my FAVE books of 2014.

NOBLE NOVEMBER: Gilt by Katherine Longshore

Jewels, and Bitches, and Boys! Oh, my! If you have watched HBO’s The Tudors, or nurse a love for English history (as do I), than you have probably been drawn to the Gilt, Tarnish, and Brazen books by Katherine Longshore. The stunning covers on the most recent editions of these books invoke a sense of richness and luxury reserved for kings and queens. I appreciate the hours and hard work spent on Katherine’s part to […]
