Review: Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz

I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz Series: Alex & Eliza #1 Published by Macmillan Children’s Books on September 7th 2017 Genres: Fiction, Historical, Romance, Young Adult Pages: 359 Format: E-Arc Source: Netgalley Buy on Amazon Goodreads Their romance shaped a nation. The rest was history. 1777. Albany, New York. As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball. Still, she can barely […]

Through the Letterbox: Fairyloot Talk Faerie To Me Unboxing

Welcome to Through the Letterbox.  I think that it is fair to say now that I am a huge fan of  FairyLoot. This is a monthly subscription YA book box based in the UK. This months theme was entitled Talk Faerie to Me. the box: In each box you can expect: One recently published Young Adult book, 4-6 goodies often related to the book, promotional items such as posters, bookmarks and a signed bookplate (whenever possible),  a unique hashtag that links you up with one other person receiving a box. The box is £26 plus shipping at £3.95 (if UK based) bringing it to a grand total of £29.95. I wish that the shipping is including in the price because it is like a hidden extra. But I do think that this box is well worth the price. This box was themed around  ‘Talk Faerie To Me’ box features items inspired by faeries in general, as well as our favourite faerie fandoms! You can expect items themed on Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses in this box, as […]

Did You See Melody? by Sophie Hannah Published by Hodder & Stoughton on August 24th 2017 Genres: Fiction, Mystery, Thriller Pages: 400 Format: Arc, E-Arc Source: Netgalley, Publisher Buy on Amazon Goodreads Pushed to breaking point, Cara Burrows abandons her home and family and escapes to a five-star spa resort she can’t afford. Late at night, exhausted and desperate, she lets herself into her hotel room and is shocked to find it already occupied – by a man and a teenage girl. A simple mistake on the part of the hotel receptionist – but Cara’s fear intensifies when she works out that the girl she saw alive and well in the hotel room is someone she can’t possibly have seen: the most famous murder victim in the country, Melody Chapa, whose parents are serving life sentences for her murder. Cara doesn’t know what to trust: everything she’s read and heard about the case, or the evidence of her own eyes. Did she really see Melody? And is she prepared to ask herself that question and answer it honestly if it […]
