Book Review – Wild Hearts

Wild Hearts by Virginia Henley is a book I came across when scouring Amazon’s top 100 historical romances on Kindle. I’d not heard of the author before, but the book title and description grabbed my attention. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did.¬†

Book Review: Celtic Shores

For anyone that hasn’t read my previous blog post, this is the sequel to Celtic Storms by Delaney Rhodes. I really enjoyed reading Celtic Storms, though it took me a while to get in to, so I was eager to start reading Celtic Shores straight away. I powered through it in the same afternoon that read more »

Book Review: Celtic Storms

I’m sure the title of the book gives away why I decided to read it – the word Celtic gets me every time . I’ve been very into reading historical romances of late, but they have mostly been regency romances, I decided it was time to try another time period. I’ve not read anything by read more »

Book Review: The Last Song

I’ve been aware of Nicholas Sparks‘ work since The Notebook was released on film in 2004, but he’s never been someone who was at the top of my reading list.

Book Review: Princess of the Midnight Ball

Growing up, I adored the story of the Twelve Dancing Princesses; it was a fantastic fairy-tale by the Brothers Grimm that incorporated mystery, romance, beauty and dancing. Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George is a novel based on this fairy-tale, and the description on Amazon made me very curious to see how read more »

Book Review: His Good Opinion

As I’ve said in the past, I love all things Jane Austen and I really enjoy reading fan-fiction based on her stories (particularly the ones based on Pride and Prejudice). I follow a lot of book-type people on Twitter¬†and one recently tweeted that His Good Opinion by Nancy Kelley was free on Amazon Kindle for read more »

Book Review: Waltzing With The Wallflower

After reading The House Of Renwick series by Rachel Van Dyken, I found myself in two positions. The first was that I wanted to read more of her work and I needed to choose which book to read next. The second was that I found myself in a great conversation with Rachel on Twitter; she read more »

Book Review: Mansfield Park

On my mission to be able to claim that I have in fact read all of the Jane Austen novels, I decided that Mansfield Park was next on my list. I read Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility a long time ago, and recently read Persuasion. Mansfield Park is a story I was familiar read more »
