Flu Review - The Woman with Two Shadows by Sarah James

 

I just find this book to be meh at best, and infuriating at worst. I, personally, cannot relate to this…

Flu Review - Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez

 

Wow! What a great read. Abby Jimenez tackles the harsh topic of abuse (including mental and emotional abuse) and does it with such grace and dignity. She never romanticizes the abuse and constantly advocates for therapy and leaving the abuser. Even…

Flu Review - The Falcon's Eyes by Francesca Stanfill

The Falcon's Eyes is what I would consider to be the perfect book. The characters, setting, plot, vernacular, and emotion of the book set it apart from other historical novels. While the book is called a novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine, it follows after Ben-Hur: the…

Flu Review - Brides of Rome by Debra Macleod

The Brides of Rome focuses on the world of the Vestal Virgins, primarily Pomponia. The book had a slow start and a confusing prologue because we never circled back to the events in the prologue. However, the book did pick up speed as we navigated the ins and outs…
