March Reading Round Up

I was hoping that I'd be able to spend Spring Break doing a little light reading, but it didn't end up happening.  So I didn't get as many books read this month as I'd like to have.  But those that I did were pretty good over all.

The Skeleton Garden: A Book Review

I received this book from NetGalley, through the courtesy of Alibi/Random House. The book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

The Skeleton Garden

Texas transplant Pru Parke has put down roots in England, but she never dreamed she’d live in a grand place such as Greenoak. When her former employers offer Pru and her new husband, former Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse, the use of their nineteenth-century estate while they’re away for a year, she jumps at the chance. Sweetening the deal is the prospect of further bonding with her long-lost brother, Simon, who happens to be Greenoak’s head gardener. But the majestic manor has at least one skeleton in its closet—or, rather, its garden.

If you love Young Adult fiction, you will love the Uppercase subscription box.  I know I certainly did.  This subscription box is a little different than any of the other ones that I've tried out so far, and the differences certainly stood out and made it a box worth repeating.

Winter from The Lunar Chronicles: A Book Review


Winter The Lunar Chronicles

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend--the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?

March 2016 Fantasy and Sci Fi Subscription Box Review

In my never ending attempt to run myself out of house and home by purchasing more and more books, I am sharing another subscription box review with you today.  The Fantasy and Sci Fi subscription box was a box that I subscribed to without much advance notice on what the box was about. Now usually, you won't know much about the theme of the box, but all I knew about the Fantasy and Sci Fi box that it contained fantasy and science fiction books and a bit of book fandom in the form of merchandise and fun products.  The website is very minimalistic with only a few pictures of past boxes.  But those boxes look pretty awesome. And I admit, I was not disappointed with the March 2016 Fantasy and Sci Fi Subscription box.
