Mini Reviews: Tess of the Road, Daughter of the Burning City, & The Game of Love and Death

I know I rarely do mini reviews (read: never) but every once and a while, I do humor myself and re-read a book that I’ve read before.  For posts like these, I don’t think that a unique, standing review is strictly necessary.  After all, I’ve already outlined all the good stuff about these novels.  However, experiences differ between an initial read vs. a reread, and I still want to talk about these books. To solve the repeat-book dilemma, I’ve decided that every time I collect 3 re-reads, I’m going to give y’all a set of mini reviews!  Not as much of a […]

Amanda Foody’s second book does not disappoint.  She […]

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

My New Love: Daughter of the Burning City. My wee dragonmites, I am so in love with this book that my brain is in about fifty different places and I am having a difficult time figuring out where to begin.  If you follow me on Goodreads and have seen my review there, then you know I am an absolutely mess about it.  It was so good.  Right up my alley.  If you like surprises, illusions, magic, awkward teen relationships, espionage, circuses, or bug collections please consider this book. Characters ❤︎ There are so many wonderful things I want to say about […]
