The Witch of Painted SorrowsThe Witch of Painted Sorrows by M.J. Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is everything I love in a novel. Expert storyteller, artists, and Belle Epoque. M. J. Rose’s books are the creme de la creme of historical fiction.

Goodreads | nikkia authement (Chauvin, LA)’s review of The Gracekeepers

The GracekeepersThe Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Last night, I was feeling down cuz it seems everything that can go wrong always does at the same time. My car air conditioner went out and my daughter broke her glasses. Reading the Gracekeepers made me hopeful again. Its a lesson in life type book with lyrical language and likeable characters. Loved it

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

thanks Knopf Doubleday and netgalley for arc.

I’ve been having good experiences so far with translated books this year. Its crazy to think this was in french first, I guess what they say about the french having a time set aside each day for the bedroom is something this author took to the bank and damn good crime mystery too.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a cool, different book Dark Alchemy turned out to be. Loved this book. I usually read historical fiction and it was cool to read something in a unique setting, with a kick ass heroine. Hope the next book’s coming soon.

Beautiful book. The writing was so artfully and lyrically written that being drawn into this book was easy. Can’t wait for the next book. This is the reason I read books it is to escape worrying about the kids and bills for a little while.

Thanks Lake union publishing and netgalley.
I read Pioneer Girl earlier this year, so I was very interested in Wild Rose to learn more. Loved reading about Rose and her life, her writing, and her intense relationship with her mother.
