Review: Lies Jane Austen Told Me by Julie Wright

Review: Lies Jane Austen Told Me by Julie Wright Lies Jane Austen Told Me Author: Julie Wright Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: *stands up with a little wave*  Hello, my name is Nima and I am a Hallmark romance movie addict.  I did a little jig and set my DVR when Hallmark announced thirty-three new Christmas movies for the 2017 season.  Clearly, I am not alone.  What does that have to do with a book review? I’ve always contended that romance readers love relationships and Hallmark has proved that modern consumers are not put off by a lack of steamy sex scenes.  Shadow Mountain Publishing has a series of stand alone “proper romances” which banks...

Review: The Last Gentleman Standing by Jane Ashford

Review: The Last Gentleman Standing by Jane Ashford The Last Gentleman Standing Author: Jane Ashford Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: My understanding is the The Last Gentleman Standing is a re-release that was originally published some 25 years ago. This helped me understand the book so much better. The characters are fun and witty, but the character development isn’t as strong as I like, especially between Elizabeth and Derek. If they are the main couple of the book, why does the author spend so much time telling us about Belinda and the Duke? I also feel like the ending of the novel came out of nowhere. Yes, there are a few hints, but the...

Review: Dark Rooms by Sionna Fox

Review: Dark Rooms by Sionna Fox Dark Rooms Author: Sionna Fox Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The word play of the title, Dark Rooms, isn’t lost on me. I actually love it and think it’s perfect for this book. This was a short—took me under two hours to read it. There were a lot of things I liked, and some things that were a little meh for me. Then again, this could be **just** me. I really liked the character development for Wes. I think we got a well-rounded story about him, and his POV was the strongest. He was my favorite character, unless you count Ed. I loved how we watched...

Review: Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichton

Review: Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichton Dragon Teeth Author: Michael Crichton Reviewer: Jen Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Dragon Teeth is a wonderful historical fiction set in the old West during the time of the infamous Bones Wars; a time when two great paleontologists raced to uncover and collect the most impressive dinosaur discoveries. Released almost ten years after the author’s death, Dragon Teeth has the feel of a genuine Crichton story. I don’t know how much of the book was edited and filled in by a ghost-writer, but it was done very much in the vein of his body of works. The story follows Yale freshman William Johnson, who decides to worm his...
