100 Pages A Day...Stephanie's Book Reviews

I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way.  I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.

August Wrap-Up

Wow!  This month I read 18 books including one audiobook and one novella.  

Here's the Run Down:

 

Wednesdaymeter by Dean Carnby: A fantansy romp with magical vegetables and polygons that run corporations, one you'll have to read to understand.  Review.

 

Fractured by Erin Hayes:  A gore-filled horror/thriller featuring twins with a strange bond. Review

 

Not Quite Dead by Lyla Payne: A new-adult, paranormal romance with a female pirate ghost.  Fun and different than what I was expecting.  Review.

 

The Summer Queen by Elizabeth Chadwick:  Historical fiction about Eleanor of Aquitaine from the age of 13 to her marriage to Henry II.  Review.

 

Irradiated by S. Elliot Brandis:  Dystopian science fiction where the sun causes mutations to anyone who stays out to long.  Review. 

 

The Golden Pathway by Donna M. Dinatale: Middle grade fiction about the underground railroad.  Review.

 

The Boleyn Reckoning by Laura Andersen:  Alternate historical fiction, the last book in the Boleyn trilogy. Review.

 

Inamorata by Megan Chance:  A unique blend of historical fiction and the paranormal, set in 1800's Venice.  Review.

 

The Twyning by Terence Blacker:  Middle Grade historical fiction/fantasy about the war against rats in 1900's England and two kids special bond with the rats. Review. 

 

The Angel of Losses by Stephanie Feldman: Jewish folklore and family woven together to tell a beautiful story.  Review.

 

How to Shit in the Woods by Kathleen Meyer:  An audio book I listened to for work, hilarious but with a lot of important information.  Review. 

 

Plantation Nation by Mercedes King: Young Adult historical fiction set in the Civil War about a young woman in the south who dresses as a man and joins the Union Army. Review. 

 

Blameless by Gail Carriger: The third book in the Parasol Protectorate series.  Fun, but not as great as the first two.  Review.

 

Gypsy by Trisha Leigh: Young adult science fiction about a group of teens with special abilities.  Review.  

 

Eagle En Garde by Olga Godim: A fun, fantasy adventure following Darin, a mercenary in The Eagles.  Review.

 

Dragonfly by Charles A. Cornell:  Alternate WWII history, science fiction, steampunk about a female RAF pilot.  Review.

 

The Agincourt Bride by Joanna Hickson: Historical fiction about Catherine Valois.  Review.

 

Awesome month of reading for me!  I loved a lot of books this month.  My favorites were Inamorata, The Boleyn Reckoning and Gypsy.  My least favorite was Wednesdaymeter.
