Book Rating:8.4 Characters: The Lawrence Browne Affair (The Turner Series Book 1) First published: February 6th 2017Rating: 8.42 stars GoodReads:The Lawrence Browne Affair Review: I enjoyed this even though at times there was too much internal dialogue. I found Lawrence totally adorable and Georgie was perfect for him. Now I need to read Jack’s story and I am looking forward to Courtney’s.

Author: First Book Publish:2014 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:6.9 Characters: The Steampunk Trilogy (La Trilogia Steampunk Book 1) First published: July 7th 2014Rating: 6.88 stars GoodReads:The Steampunk Trilogy Review: Picked this up based on a “Oh, you like China Mieville, you’ll like this” recommendation. Big mistake. The prose is bland, the characters are universally one-dimensional, the plot “twists” are stunningly obvious throughout, and the whole thing feels like the quality of writing you expect to pick up at a 4th grade classroom.
Author: First Book Publish:2005 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.7 Characters: Oliver Twist, Artful Dodger, Rose Maylie Oliver Twist (Biblioteca Rtp – Clássicos Em Banda Desenhada Book 1) First published: March 31st 2005Rating: 7.68 stars GoodReads:Oliver Twist Review: Oliver Twist’s famous cry of the heart – “Please, sir, I want some more” – has resounded with generations of readers of all ages. The author poured his own youthful experience of Victorian London’s unspeakable squalor into this realistic depiction of a spirited young innocent’s unwilling but inevitable recruitment into a scabrous gang of thieves. Masterminded by the loathsome Fagin, the underworld crew features some of Dickens’s most memorable characters, including the vicious Bill Sikes, gentle Nancy, and the juvenile pickpocket known as the Artful Dodger.
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: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.
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.
Author: First Book Publish:2015 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.3 Characters: House of Shadows: a Gothic Romance (House Of Shadows Book 1) First published: October 14th 2015Rating: 8.26 stars GoodReads:House of Shadows: a Gothic Romance Review: I got into this book reluctantly but eventually enjoyed it. It’s got a classic gothic romance plot and as a result, the story itself is quite predictable. It wan’t any less enjoyable for that though.
Author: First Book Publish:2014 Books in series: 2 Avg. Book Rating:7.8 Characters: His Forbidden Lady (Tudor Book 1) First published: August 10th 2014Rating: 7.86 stars GoodReads:His Forbidden Lady Review: This book is a great read. Annabelle and Rafe story is no matter what you been through,you never forget your true love. One Forbidden Knight (Tudor Book 2) First published: October 18th 2015Rating: 7.78 stars GoodReads:One Forbidden Knight Review: The love story between Catherine and Brand was delicious. Packed with breathtaking romance, heart stopping intrigue and suspense, and smoking hot sex scenes steamy enough to melt your kindle this is a must read! Yes, it’s a novella, but it never felt rushed to me, the characters were well developed and drew me in from the first page. This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone, though I loved the first, His Forbidden Lady, just as much and highly recommend going back
