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…

Author: First Book Publish:2016 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.1 Characters: The Secret History of Twin Peaks (Twin Peaks Book 1) First published: October 17th 2016Rating: 8.06 stars GoodReads:The Secret History of Twin Peaks Review: This is an enjoyable “object” of a book with some fun bits to it, but as a book you try to read from cover to cover, it can be a bit dry. Also, there’s a lot more UFO talk than I’d care for. That part just didn’t feel very Twin Peaks to me. But elsewhere there are some fun connections and info, though at times it seems to conflict with the show when it recounts some character’s backstories. I think it’s far from essential reading, and you really would have to be a fan to get what there is to get

Author: First Book Publish:2005 Books in series: 2 Avg. Book Rating:9.2 Characters: A River Too Deep (People Of The Book Book 1) First published: November 3rd 2005Rating: 9.16 stars GoodReads:A River Too Deep Review: Love the Native American history and the chemistry of the main characters. The character development and names are a pleasure. I felt the scriptural references were VERY clunky and unrealistic in the beginning. The beginning was slow, but once the story was in full swing I enjoyed it immensely. I liked Light Birds Song (the second novel) much better even. Light Bird’s Song (People Of The Book Book 2) First published: August 31st 2007Rating: 9.36 stars GoodReads:Light Bird’s Song Review: Light Bird enjoyed life among her people. She was adored by both her family and clan, the only wrinkle being a warrior from a neighboring tribe who showed an interest she didn’t return. But his action set into motion a series of events that would rip Light Bird away from the peace, love and security that she had grown up with and plunge her into a world of uncertainty and despair with a man she didn’t know and could only fear.

Book Rating:7 Characters: Paper Thin (Paper Thin Book 1) First published: September 28th 2015Rating: 6.96 stars GoodReads:Paper Thin Review: It’s hard to know what I can say in this review without revealing too much of the story. I’ll start with characterization and work my way from there.
Author: First Book Publish:2016 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8 Characters: Palindrome (Lamb And Lavagnino Book 1) First published: June 20th 2016Rating: 7.98 stars GoodReads:Palindrome Review: Palindrome is a thoroughly funny and highly intriguing story whether you read it forward or backward. It hooks you on the first page with a bizarre and grotesque conspiracy that will keep you turning the page until you can discover the truth in an eerie climax that’ll haunt you long after you close the book.
Author: First Book Publish:2013 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.5 Characters: A King Ensnared (The Stewart Chronicles #1) (The Stewart Chronicles Book 1) First published: November 5th 2013Rating: 7.48 stars GoodReads:A King Ensnared (The Stewart Chronicles #1) Review: I really like this book. I have read very little about James I, King of Scots, who spent eighteen years in English captivity so it was new territory for me. A better job had been done on the proof-reading as well which also mad it a more enjoyable read. It wasn’t a good thing to be a Royal Stewart as James I uncle, The Duke of Albany had already killed one of his nephews in order to maintain his hold on power in Scotland and if that meant leaving James a penniless prisoner in England, so be it.
Author: First Book Publish:2014 Books in series: 1 Avg. 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.

Book Rating:7.1 Characters: Strange Gods: A Mystery (Vera And Tolliver Book 1) First published: June 23rd 2014Rating: 7.06 stars GoodReads:Strange Gods: A Mystery Review: What a well-written mystery of early 20th century Africa; for the most part that is. The love story was a bit much. The novel mixed historical characters with the fictional. If you have read Out of Africa or West With the Night you will probably enjoy this. The description of Africa is loving and vivid.
