Mini-reviews Part II

Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton

Interesting premise, decent execution, and a story that is fairly well-written will keep people reading, although it is a story easily forgotten, and there is not enough of a cliffhanger to draw people into the rest of the series.

 

A Touch of Stardust by Kate Alcott

I loved the insider’s look at the filming of Gone With the Wind because it is one of my favorite books and movies. However, it may be the only reason I enjoyed it, as I found myself wanting to skip over those scenes that did not take place on set. I would highly recommend it to fellow GWTW lovers though.

 

The Siege Winter by Ariana Franklin and Samantha Norman

A very intriguing look at early English history and the rise of the Plantagenets through the eyes of two very strong but harmed women in a time where women were nothing but chattel. Thoroughly impressive in its attention to detail and historical accuracy.

    I finally saw Gone With the Wind about a year ago. I was holed up at home and watched the entire 4.5 hours in one sitting. I was riveted. I always forget that it’s based on a book. I should probably read the book.

      Read the book. Read the book. The movie is awesome, but the book? Ah-mazing.

    I like the mini reviews! I have Seeker but I’ve been afraid to pick it up after seeing so many negative reviews. Maybe I’ll try it as a summer pool read.

    I loved GWTW so I am excited to read A Touch of Stardust.

      I didn’t think Seeker was terrible. If you have it, I think it’s worth a read. If anything, it is a quick one.
