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...

Review: Royally Endowed by Emma Chase

Royally Endowed Published by Simon & Schuster on August 2017 Genres: Romance Pages: 275 Format: Audiobook, ARC Source: Publisher Buy on Amazon Goodreads Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really. To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d...

Review: The Girl Before by J.P. Delaney

Published by Random House Audio on January 2017 Genres: Adult Fiction Pages: 320 Format: Audiobook Source: Bought Buy on Amazon Goodreads Emma Reeling from a traumatic break-in, Emma wants a new place to live. But none of the apartments she sees are affordable or feel safe. Until One Folgate Street. The house is an architectural masterpiece: a minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. But there are rules. The enigmatic architect who designed the house retains full control: no books, no throw pillows, no photos or clutter or personal effects of any kind. The space is intended to transform its occupant - and it does. Jane After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street, she is instantly drawn to the space - and to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the home's previous tenant, a woman similar to Jane in age and appearance. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, she unwittingly follows the same patterns, makes the same choices, crosses paths with the same people, and experiences the same terror as the girl before. There’s something fresh and twisted about The Girl Before, something I can’t put my finger on. You’d think that this genre, now exploding since Gone Girl, was somehow over baked, but not. The Girl...
