Author: First Book Publish:2009 Books in series: 2 Avg. Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Ана Каренина, II том (Anna Karenina, 2 Volumes Book 1) First published: December 7th 2009Rating: 8.1 stars GoodReads:Ана Каренина, II том Review: The book story was amazing because the author is/was male and he captured very feminine thoughts and feelings. He captured what it feels like to be viewed as property, especially long ago and how limited a woman’s choices really were back then. You either were born into a social setting that would allow you to be kept or you were born into hard labor and living. There was a non-existent middle class in Russia at that time. Anna Kareninová I (1/2) (Anna Karenina, 2 Volumes Book 2) First published: February 6th 2017Rating: 8.12 stars GoodReads:Anna Kareninová I (1/2) Review: Mnohí ju považujú za jeden z najlepších románov všetkých čias. Anna Kareninová je Tolstojov klasický príbeh lásky a nevery odohrávajúci sa v Moskve a Petrohrade v prostredí vyšších spoločenských kruhov, ktorý zachytáva dramatický vývoj milostného vzťahu Anny, krásnej vydatej ženy, a vojvodu Vronského, vplyvného armádneho dôstojníka. Je to komplexné majstrovské dielo, v ktorom Tolstoj dokonale prepojil osudy tuctov postáv a podal jedinečný plastický obraz ruskej spoločnosti na…

Book Rating:7.7 Characters: The Paris Time Capsule (Paris Time Capsule Book 1) First published: March 31st 2014Rating: 7.74 stars GoodReads:The Paris Time Capsule Review: This novel has a stunning cover, an intriguing title, and some evocative descriptions of the real Paris apartment that was discovered – preserved in its entirety – a few years ago. Ella Carey has written a novel around that discovery, inventing a tantalising romance and a possible history to explain it.
Author: First Book Publish:2016 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.8 Characters: Friday Night Brides (Enchanted Bridal Book 1) First published: May 2nd 2016Rating: 7.84 stars GoodReads:Friday Night Brides Review: The perfect book! It is rare that an author can write so well that you feel as if you are a part of the story, rather than reading it. That is exactly how Friday Night Brides made me feel – as if these women were best friends that I could just pick up the phone and reach out to. I love the depth of each character developed, the personalities so distinct and different. This book made me feel – sad in placed, laugh out loud funny in more places and with warm fuzzies after I finished reading. I can

Book Rating:8.4 Characters: Autumn Duchess (Roxton Family Series Book 1) First published: August 7th 2011Rating: 8.42 stars GoodReads:Autumn Duchess Review: As many people who will read this already know, I am a history geek with a singular fascination with the Georgian era. This also make me a pretty harsh critic of any book set in this period. Autumn Duchess makes the fourth book I have read by author Lucinda Brant and I now declared myself a true blue fan.

Author: First Book Publish:2014 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8 Characters: Love in Rewind (Love In Rewind Book 1) First published: May 16th 2014Rating: 8.04 stars GoodReads:Love in Rewind Review: This is a story about an 18 year old Emily who meets and quickly falls in love with a 30 year old real estate tycoon, Louis. Within two days, Louis becomes obsessed with her, tells her he loves her, asks her to move in with him, seduces her and buys her a car. I found the story to be not only unbelievable but a little predatory. If all you are looking for is hot sex scenes, you will probably like this book. On the other hand, if you need good plot development and like a slow burn for character d

The lecturer, Robert J. Allison, successfully balances historical facts with interesting stories to maintain the listener’s interest. I thoroughly enjoyed the lectures.
Author: First Book Publish:1972 Books in series: 3 Avg. Book Rating:7.8 Characters: Sam Spade, Casper Gutman, Effie Perine, Joel Cairo, Brigid O'Shaughnessy, The Maltese Falcon (Nova Coleção Vampiro Book 1) First published: April 30th 1972Rating: 7.84 stars GoodReads:The Maltese Falcon Review: It is my third reading of Maltese Falcon, and I get astonished by it every single time. This founding novel of the noir never fails to remind me of chaos and our need to find a meaningful center. The plot, like that of Chandler novels, is labyrinthine (off course!). As Sam Spade takes us on a ride through the city, not much is clear prima facia, and on top of it, he has to struggle to hold his own. Wit keeps him going. It is a dangerous landscape. One has to think quick and think correct. One is The Big Bow Mystery (Nova Coleção Vampiro Book 2) First published: December 11th 1982Rating: 6.64 stars GoodReads:The Big Bow Mystery Review: The seminal locked-room murder mystery, essential reading for genre enthusiasts—as its ranking on the “Queen’s Quorum” attests—”The Big Bow Mystery” remains worthwhile not only for the cleverness of its plot but for the pleasures of prose such as this: Kniepadatas…

Shannon is the oldest and has always envied her brighter, prettier sister. Dana has always looked out for her older, darker, and shy sister. People whisper about her as she’s strange but Shannon never understands why she’s so different and why people treat her like they do. She yearns to be just like her sister, Dana. Instead, she’s an outcast to her family and townspeople. Little do the sisters
