His to Defend | Rhenna Morgan

This was a great contemporary alpha male romance. I‘ve never read a book about a modern day mobster so I wasn‘t quite sure what to expect, but I ended up loving the dynamics.

Lady Jayne Disappears | Joanna Davidson Politano

This book was like Jane Eyre meets a Charles Dickens novel and I loved it. It‘s like Jane Eyre in the sense that the main character is living in a mysterious house with people above her station. Similar to a Dickens novel, this book deals with and shed light on some unsavory things about the Victorian era like debtors‘ prison.

This book was absolutely amazing!

The story is very simple but very profound. There are lots of little pieces of wisdom sprinkled throughout that really hit me hard. For example, this was one of my favorite passages:

“Sometimes I feel lost,” said the boy.
“Me too,” said the mole, “but we love you and love brings you home.”

This was a very heartfelt and touching book.

The depression representation was really well done. It showed what depression looked like and how it affects not only the person with it, but also their loved ones.

This was such a fun book! The premise is so cool and makes for an exciting read. The characters get launched into a wide range of video games and it was interesting to see how they adapted to each one.

I absolutely loved the first book in the trilogy but um okay wow this book was even more insane. It was a roller coaster of emotions. This book picks up right where the last book left off and from then on just continues all the craziness.

Overall, if you‘re looking for a YA read for spooky season, then check out this book. There‘s witchcraft, zombie girls, and a creepy old abandoned house. What more could you want?

Growing up, I was a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables. I read the book and used to watch the animated TV show on PBS. I wanted to live in Avonlea with Anne. So naturally I was excited to read this book.

I was not disappointed. The book felt in the spirit very much like Anne of Green Gables. I can tell that the author did her research.

This was another fun installment in the Tales from the Haunted Mansion series. I don‘t think it was as good as the second one, but it was still enjoyable.
