Just in Time (Bostwick)

Just in Time (Bostwick)

I don’t think I’ve read anything by this author that I didn’t like! Although this book wasn’t as much about quilting as some of her others, there was still quilting and sewing included!

Cinder – Marissa Meyer

Cinder – Marissa Meyer

I am surprised by how much in enjoyed this book! I have never been a big fan of the original Cinderella; she is really only good at being nice and pretty, which makes for a pretty boring character.  But Cinder isn’t like that at all; she’s adventurous and snarky and good at fixing things; so much more in charge of her own destiny than her fairy tail counterpart.

There were times when the book felt redundant, and times when it felt like it went off on a tangent unrelated to Ida Lewis, but overall, still interesting.

The Thief of Lanwyn Manor (Sarah E. Ladd)

The Thief of Lanwyn Manor (Sarah E. Ladd)

I really enjoyed this story, with just enough mystery to keep the reader wondering who was behind all the strange things that were happening, but also with enough clues that, although you couldn’t be sure certain persons were the culprit, you were pretty sure they were at least involved, and just a dash of romance!
