Book Review of Time’s Convert

3 of 5 stars

I know, where have I been and why haven’t I posted a review in a while?  Here’s why!

I was lost in the highly anticipated follow up to the amazing All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. This book is 436 pages of somewhat dense text. Took me some time to get through! I follow Deborah on social media and the day earlier this year when she finished her book, she posted a picture of the pages all piled up with the caption “I like big books and I cannot lie”. Cracked me up.

So the All Souls Trilogy is very likely one of my top favorite reads of all time. I couldn’t wait to get back together with these characters and live in their world for a while. This book follows the story of Marcus. His story is cleverly woven into past true historical events (for example, he was there when the Liberty Bell cracked). Most of this story is in the past with a few chapters in the present. Throughout the story we get to experience what it is like to become a vampire as Marcus’ mate Phoebe decides to become immortal and spend the rest of time with him, “evermore”.

I gave this 3 stars, whereas the other books earn a 5 (I would give way more than that if it was a thing). For me it was not as exciting and action packed as the first three and at times but was nice to learn his backstory. I hope to see more of these great characters. For extra fun, A Discovery of Witches is now a TV show in England and will be coming to the US on Sundance Now. I’ll be subscribing 🙂

Review of: The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox

Witch of3.5 out of 5 Stars

A debut novel, Hester Fox weaves a suspenseful tale of how a young girl maneuvers family dynamics, personal relationships, and learning about her true self. 1800s Massachusetts sets the stage for scandal, romance, and self-discovery. I enjoyed this book a great deal! At one point I just had to keep reading to find out how it all unfolds! I found myself rooting for some characters, and hoping the villains get what they have coming.

A great Fall read to get you in the Halloween spirit.  Due out October 2, 2018.
