Goodreads | nikkia authement (Chauvin, LA)’s review of Jade Dragon Mountain

Jade Dragon MountainJade Dragon Mountain by Elsa Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks St. Martin’s Press and netgalley for arc.

The storytelling in this book is out of this world. I have missed reading this kind of adult myth/fable. Loved the setting, emotional context, and characters. I’ll be saving this one to read again.

The Tapestry (Joanna Stafford, #3)The Tapestry by Nancy Bilyeau
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought I would be turned off by all the religious tones so I didn’t start the series until now, but I really like Joanna. There is so much else going on in the book, and it is so well written. Loved it

The Enlightenment of Nina FindlayThe Enlightenment of Nina Findlay by Andrea Gillies
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Takes dedication to a frustrating woman who is in a love triangle. I don’t read to be depressed or guilty so I just wanted to tell Nina to get over it!

The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother And MeThe Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother And Me by Sofka Zinovieff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved the pictures- the only time I wish I had a color kindle/tablet is when I read biographies about artists. This book will appeal to a certain slot of literary/artist readers I think.
