My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t normally read historical stories, but I couldn’t help but choose to read this after seeing that it was set in Viking times! The descriptions were vivid and beautiful giving me a clear picture of the setting. The characters completely endeared me to them and they just matched well. I truly enjoyed this book! I am looking forward to reading more by this author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having started this series, I had to keep reading! I loved the way all the characters interacted with each other. I wished I could walk around outside and see the beautiful places that were painted into my mind! This author does a fabulous job showing you their world, and dragging you in, to the point where you look up and don’t expect to see your own space, but truly expect to see their world. As someone who usually shies away from historical fiction, I truly recommend this series because it drew me in from word one, so I’m really glad I decided to try something different than I usually do!

ConQuest: The Art of Selling at Cons by Megan Mackie – Review by Jo Frizzell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was spectacular. I decided to read it because I have always wanted to write a book but have never had any idea how I could successfully sell it. I tend to have a hard time reading non-fiction books, or how-to books and that was not the case with this book. I appreciate the way the author wrote it, almost like they were standing in front of me sharing this information. It also made it very easy to read because it gave information in a clear and concise manner without being condescending.

The Traveler (The Traveler, Book 1) by Deborah Dugan – Review by Jo Frizzell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book drew me in and kept me wondering! I just wanted to keep reading to understand. Honestly, Tristan’s immediate reaction to Harry was much more mild than mine would have been. My roommate would have been dying laughing at me while I cried in a mixture of fear and confusion. I have to give this author kudos for just having such a knack for showing the world she’s designed with words in a way that makes me want to know if Harry has tried to talk to me and I had the aforementioned freakout and made him leave, or if she has just created this world that is like ours, but not.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was phenomenal! Kella and Huck have such an amazing sibling relationship, and tying that in with their relationship with Jumper is truly heartwarming, the way they take care of each other. All of the references to Lord of the Rings also kept me smiling, with the way they communicated with each other building relationships in the midst of the turmoil the was the ETM. I cant wait to see how Gazer, Huck, and Kella band together to get out of this new conflict. Honestly, the way this story was written was truly a masterpiece and I can’t wait to see what comes next!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This author writes a beautiful story! The main character, Lexi, is so relatable! She’s living her every day life, and refuses to compromise her morals. That’s so hard to do, and the way she interacts with the other characters is so realistic. The relationships weaved between the characters and the complexity of the plot were truly amazing and I didn’t want to put this book down!

Ember's Secret (Solstice Quartet #1)Ember’s Secret by Catherine Peace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was fantastic! The complexity of the characters was fabulous and the relationships between them were so realistic. All the food as well sounded amazing and I really wished I could taste it! The conflicts in each of their lives were so relatable and I definitely felt for Austin in his worry for his mom while his father was so sick. But Ember’s struggle with the trauma of her past makes me sad, although I truly adore her way of connecting to and keeping her past alive through using what she learned from her mom about cooking to keep her restaurant alive.

I really enjoyed reading this book! I generally don’t read books like this, but I was drawn to it. I am dating someone who is pagan and the title drew me in. I was hoping for more information and was not disappointed. It kept me interested and answered questions, while showing different ways to see magic in everyday life. I have always believed that there is magic in the world and reading this book reinforced that fact.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was really cute! My favorite thing to look for when I read something is relationships between characters. This author wrote them so well! There was individual growth and just seeing the relationship itself build was what kept me reading! The shared history followed by such different journeys to that point in their lives was just so relatable! Everyone gets to adulthood and stability in different paths, and that was illustrated beautifully in the story. I adore the way the author writes and am excited to see what else they have!
