Review: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

The Tirteenth TaleDiane SetterfieldFirst published September 10th, 2006

Reclusive author Vida Winter, famous for her collection of twelve enchanting stories, has spent the past six decades penning a series of alternate lives for herself. Now old and ailing, she is ready to reveal the truth about her extraordinary existence and the violent and tragic past she has kept secret for so long. Calling on Margaret Lea, a young biographer troubled by her own painful history, Vida disinters the life she meant to bury for good. Margaret is mesmerized by the author’s tale of Gothic strangeness—featuring the beautiful and willful Isabelle, the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline, a ghost, a governess, a topiary garden and a devastating fire.

Darkfever (Fever #1)Karen Marie Moning First published October 31st, 2006 

MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.

She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she…

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

I enjoy a lot of genres but I do have a primary and that would be YA. I would not be able to give up reading *gasp*. So I would pick up Urban Fantasy (Or PNR they’re pretty similar). I love paranormal books with lots of action and excitement so either of those usually do the trick. I’m just finishing the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning (on book #5) and I could see myself being able to live without YA if Barrons would take its place!

Grand Blog Opening!

Posted by on 09/09/2011 • 5 Comments

I’m very excited to open my blog for business! I’ve been thinking about blogging for a while now but I didn’t have any ideas or the time to put it all together. So since I have a few books reviews piling up, I figured it was time.

So welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy my reviews. I don’t have any specific genres, though you will see a lot of YA novels. I also enjoy adult fiction so you will see a little bit of everything. I will start posting reviews today. I have a lot of them piled up so I will start importing them on my blog for you all to enjoy immensely! 😉

Very excited!Your fellow noob blogger,Giselle
