Book Review: “American Witches” by Susan Fair

Susan Fair has a great sense of humor and looks at the events of the past with a skeptical and sarcastic lens.

Book Review: “Hamilton” by Ron Chernow

I don't want to go into too much detail here, don't want to spoil it for you (haha it's history! Can't be spoiled.) This book was 731 pages long in Kindle form and it sure felt like it. It took me two and a half months to read it but man, was it the most thorough and extensive biography!

Book Review: “Drums of Autumn” by Diana Gabaldon

This book is different from most of the others in the fact that it is not only from Claire's first-person perspective. It also follows Roger Wakefield (Mackenzie) and Brianna Randall (Fraser) in the third person. I like that the author chose to write it this way because what's happening with these other characters that Claire doesn't get to be present for is very important to the story, but having Claire be first-person makes me feel like I have a special connection with her above all the other characters, like I am her when I'm reading because I can get inside her mind.

Book Review: “Enchantée: Love, Magic, Revolution” by Gita Trelease

I was into this book right off the bat! It captured my imagination from the first page and held it the entire time. When I finally finished it I was actually sad and now I can't wait for the sequel, Liberte, to come out!
