Today’s Topic: (First Ten) Books I Reviewed (These do not have to be formal reviews. A small sentence on a retailer site or Goodreads counts, too!
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
Sadly, I was never in the habit of doing book reviews before I started my blog two and a half years ago. Major apologies to all the authors I’ve been reading all these years. I still don’t do a lot of reviews on sites like Amazon and Goodreads, and when I do, they are generally brief.
But in preparing for today’s prompt I realized how much I enjoyed going back to read my thoughts on the books I first reviewed for my own site. Which means, I really want to get better at recording my thoughts on the books I read in the future.
Newton and Polly – I’ve always loved this author’s historicals and I really enjoyed her take on these real life figures.
In the Light of the Garden -I’ve always thought Heather Burch is an under rated author. I’ve read all of her contemporary/womens fiction and this is one of her best.
Princesses Behaving Badly – I do occasionally read (and review) non-fiction. This one was particularly interesting as each chapter focuses on mostly minor royalty from all around the world in different time periods.
The Lady and the Lionheart – This is still one of my top favorite books ever. It’s so tender and sweetly told.
Dead Reckoning – When I reviewed this I had read all of the author’s other books, but not this one, which was her debut. It’s not my favorite, but I still enjoyed it.
The Tox Files -Kendig is one of my must-read authors and this was the beginning of one of her best series yet. No one writes military action/romance/globetrotting stories like she does.
Love’s Shadow -This is another author I deem underrated. I love her time-slip romantic novels. This one was the second in her most recent series about triplet brothers with supernatural gifts.
The Ringmaster’s Wife -Cambron made the circus come alive to all my senses in this descriptive time-slip tale featuring the story of John and Mabel Ringling.
The Bird and the Sword – My very first Amy Harmon story, which was so good, I’ve been a loyal fan ever since. Part fantasy, part fairy tale ( which is not my usual genre), it is creative, unique and fascinating.
The Mutual Admiration Society -This was a random, unusual choice for me with an underage narrator voice and set in 1950’s Detroit. But I enjoyed it’s quirky, protective child heroine who tries to hold her family together after her father’s death.
