The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, Paper Hearts & Tell Me Three Things | Mini-Reviews

Review: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee Henry Montague (Monty) and his best friend Percy – whom he is most certainly NOT in love with – are embarking on their Grand Tour. Monty has been the disappointment of his family for years – with a carefree spirit, he’s always been the rake of the family. Along with them on their tour is Felicity, Monty’s sister, who wants to be more than what her family expects of a lady. Percy, meanwhile, is being sent to Holland after his tour, so Monty is looking at this as one final, […]

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills | Waiting on Wednesday

I WILL READ ANYTHING EMMA MILLS WRITES. Emma is the lady who gave us the most gorgeous, genuine Pride & Prejudice retelling in a football setting: First & Then.

A European vacation, unexpected self-discovery, and a cute boy…it’s pretty much everything you could want from a summer romance. So when I saw Changes in Latitudes on Epic […]

Girls With Guts: Girl Mans Up and Overdrive | Gritty Canadian YA

Hi all, I’m back from Asia! I know I promised more reviews than I managed to post – the vacation totally sapped all my reading and blogging time. To make up for it, today I have two mini-reviews of two gritty Canadian YA contemporaries – both are contemporaries, and both deal with kick-arse girls – girls with guts who take on some really hardcore situations. Hope you enjoy, and I promise I will have more reviews and a recap of my awesome vacation soon! I was really excited to read Girl Mans Up by M.E. Girard because I’ve never read a […]
