The Week in Reviews: ReadLove Recap For the Week Beginning August 25th

Another week has come and gone here at ReadLove ! Here’s what you missed! 

In Teen Zone, we travel to another realm in Jennifer’s review of Storm Siren. Meanwhile, on Kids Corner, I voyage first into the not-so-distant future, where I witness the investigation of a murder on the moon in Space Case, and then into the past, where I shadow twin sisters Elizabeth and Katherine Chatswood as they uncover secrets and solve mysteries on both sides of the Atlantic in Elizabeth’s Story, 1848 and Katherine’s Story, 1848.



Teen Zone: Storm Siren by Mary Weber



4 of 5 Hearts. An Action-Packed, Fast-Moving, Bloody Fantasy. Storm Siren offers up a heroine as powerful and conflicted as they come. Watching Nym learn self-control is half the pleasure in this book; the other half is watching her lose it!  [Read more…]  – Jennifer Michelle

Kids Corner: Katherine’s Story, 1848 by Adele Whitby

4.5 Hearts - Final


4.5 of 5 Hearts. Romance Meets Mystery in This Delightful Period Fiction for Tweens. With Katherine’s Story, 1848, Adele Whitby pens her finest fiction to date. This fourth book in the series has the broadest scope, offering a glimpse at how American and British life differed, while showing how modern thought, especially in America, was changing tradition. Fittingly, it’s just the time to explore modernity, as book five will launch us forward to 1934.  [Read more…]
