Hello Lovelies!

Today I'm sharing some of my past book reviews. I haven't had the chance to do many this year, but all the ones linked below were great reads! I'm hoping you might find something you'd like to pick up.

1 | So Great a Prince by Lauren Johnson; An interesting book on what London was like during Henry VIII's first year as king. From the point of view of both royalty figures and commoners living during the time. This is non-fiction, so reads like a historical biography.

2 | Furyborn by Claire Legrand; This is a fantasy novel that has three installments. (3rd book has yet to be released). We follow two women separated by centuries, a mother and daughter. How are they in different centuries? You'll have to read and find out. But there's magic and fighting and kissing. So it's worth it.

3 | Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor; A fantasy novel based on a fictional city, a book and lore obsessed orphan, and long forgotten gods and goddesses. Like Atlantis but with books.

4 | The Hangman's Secret by Laura Joh Rowland; A historical fiction that follows a female crime scene photographer struggling to find her footing in the working world that's dominated by men. The hangman has gotten himself hanged! Find out why and how by picking this up.

5 | The Girls of Murder City by Douglas Perry; A non-fiction that details what time was like during the famous age of man-killers and the stories that inspired the play and film, Chicago.

6 | They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera; A novel that centers on an alternate reality. What if we knew when we were going to die? What if there was a company dedicated to that kind of information? And there was nothing you could do about it? This was a wild read, let me tell you...

7 | The Rattled Bones by S. M. Parker; A family mystery, a woman fighting for her place in the 'workplace' of her town, and trauma that would keep you up at night. Some ghosts pop up in here too!

8 | Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman; This is such a beautiful book about coming into your own skin when your family is just a little bit of a mess, you have pretty sever anxiety, and the boy you like likes you back but you have no idea what to do about it.

9 | The Amateurs by Sara Shepard; The author of Pretty Little Liars has another mystery for us and it's quite interesting. A little murder, a little online friendship, a little ice cream. All wrapped up in a pretty purple cover.

10 | Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero; My favorite on this list, honestly. A Scooby-Doo retelling where the monster is actually real! Also (spolier alert) if you've ever wanted to see Velma and Daphne flirt, here's your chance.
