I rarely read comic books. I’ve probably only read three in my entire life. And I probably wouldn’t have read this one if it weren’t for the reading challenge I’m participating in.
And this one was good. Maybe not great, but certainly good. I enjoyed reading it. I wouldn’t read it again, but I will give the sequels a try. … More Review – Mouse Guard: Fall 1152

The Accidental Highwayman is one of my favorite books. The story has plenty of good, old-fashioned adventure in it, and I loved the characters!
Tripp’s writing style in this book is like nothing I’ve read before. The style reminds me of the kind of writing you’d find in an 18th-century memoir, but with more personality. The book is written in first-person point of view which allows a glimpse of Kit’s sense of humor and his view of the world. … More Review – The Accidental Highwayman + Bonus Audiobook Mini-Review
By the end of this book, I realized the word “turbulent” was actually a compliment. These men were tough, brave, and wild. They were homesteaders who cared about their families and were willing to die for their country. They were also quite the characters.
This book doesn’t focus on Ethan Allen but instead includes him along with a number of other people. I loved how the book wove together multiple stories. … More Review – Those Turbulent Sons of Freedom: Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys and the American Revolution

Here are ten books that surprised me in a good way or a bad way. Some of them surprised me with the plot, some with characters, some with the writing style. Some are books I never expected to give 5 stars but ended up doing so. … More Top Ten Tuesdays – Books That Surprised Me
In this novel, Robin Hood isn’t English and his name isn’t Robin Hood. In the back of the book, the author explains his research. He writes about whether evidence supports there ever being a Robin Hood and why he thinks the legend was based on a man who originated elsewhere. In this book, the legend is named Bran, and he’s Welsh.
This change of scenery certainly brought a freshness to the old story which bore little resemblance to the traditional tale. Aside from a number of reprising characters, this story is a different one entirely. … More Review – Hood (King Raven, #1)
