In Which Winnie Halifax is Utterly Ruined by Alexandra Vasti

In Which Winnie Halifax is Utterly Ruined

I don’t recall exactly how this trilogy came to my attention. Strangely, it may have been their long titles, which may have signaled to me an Austen-esque voice, one that at the same time did not take itself too seriously. In any case, I was very happy I picked up the first novella, In Which Margo Halifax Earns Her Shocking Reputation, and from then on I waited impatiently for weeks and weeks before the second … Continue reading In Which Winnie Halifax is Utterly Ruined by Alexandra Vasti

Books on Sale: Do You Want to Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare & More

RECOMMENDED: Do You Want to Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare is $1.99! This is part of the Castles Ever After series, but can be read on its own. Elyse loved this book:

I loved Do You Want to Start a Scandal. It’s funny, it’s sexy and it’s got some Clue-like shenanigans going on. If you have better self control than I do, I recommend savoring this book rather than powering through in one sitting (good luck).

HaBO: Medieval Romance with Reincarnations

This HaBO request is from Jay, who wants to find this romance (and yes, it does sound similar to last week’s but there’s no relation): I’ve been trying to figure out the name of this book for years, so I may be misremembering things at this point, but you guys are my last hope! The main thing I remember is that the heroine and hero (and possibly a villain) are stuck in a cycle of … Continue reading HaBO: Medieval Romance with Reincarnations

Book Review

The Shabti by Megaera C. Lorenz

The Shabti

Within the first paragraph of reading this I knew I wanted to review it. When the writing itself is just so good, you have to share it. About a chapter in, I actually stopped and restarted the book because I was reading it too quickly and I wanted to savour it. The book didn’t quite live up to the promise of those first few pages, but I still devoured it in one sitting. The book … Continue reading The Shabti by Megaera C. Lorenz
