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!

Review of "Mistress of the Revolution" by Catherine Delors

I want to start by saying that I did really like this book. I feel like it was well researched and it flowed nicely. I liked how it spanned a longer period of time, showing what life was like for the main characters before the Revolution started and all the way through it to what life is like for them after the revolution (if they survived!)

Review of "Madame Tussaud" by Michelle Moran

Wow, I was really impressed with this book! I ordered it as a bit of research in my own French Revolution historical fiction I'm about to start writing. I didn't expect to be enthralled with it, but I was! It was hard to put it down and then I was thinking about Marie when I wasn't reading. She had such an interesting and unique and terrible life during the revolution and a bit after.

"Little Women" New Movie and Book Review

A few weeks ago, with Christmas fast approaching, I decided to take on a rereading of "Little Women". Even though the story goes through all the seasons in many years, it has always felt like a Christmas story to me. I haven't read it for almost twenty years, when I was a teenager myself, so it's safe to say I found so much more in the book now than I had then. Life experiences will do that to a girl, eh? My goal was to finish reading the book before going to see the new movie out in theaters this last weekend. I almost made it with only 50 pages to go, so close enough.
