Review: Castle in the Stars: The Space Race of 1869 by Alex Alice

by Alex Alice Series: Le Chateau des Etoiles Published by First Second on September 2017 Genres: Graphic Novel Pages: 64 Format: Physical Book Source: Publisher Goodreads It’s the space race in 1869 in a kind of alternate past. … When you see the book itself, it’s this big, oversized object with this incredible watercolor comics style, and it’s this really big, epic, sweeping story of a boy following in his mother’s discovery and then opening up the solar system, but in the age of the 1800s. It’s got a kind of steampunk but also a kind of young, classic...

Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

Title: The One That Got Away Author: Melissa Pimentel Publisher: St. Martin’s Press Publication Date: August 2017 Genre: Adult Fiction Series or Stand Alone: Stand Alone Synopsis can be found here. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.   Review: Ruby and Ethan broke up ten years ago. But that doesn’t mean that either of them is over it when they see each other again for Ruby’s sister’s (and Ethan’s best friend’s) wedding. There, old feelings will surface and maybe, just maybe, second chances too. I really enjoyed The One That Got Away. A modern nod to Jane Austen’s Persuasion (I don’t want to say retelling), The One That Got Away is a sweet and light hearted story about second chances. Ruby and Ethan broke up ten years ago and they haven’t seen each other since. Until the wedding. I liked Ruby a lot. She tried so hard to be put together and successful, afraid of what others would this or how she needed t make it in NYC. I thought she had a lot of heart and a clear vulnerability that anyone can relate to, especially when just starting out. Ethan was also a great character for lots of reasons. Yes, he’s the good guy, kind and sweet and totally s mitten with Ruby when they first met. But what I really...
