Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027

Dreaming Anastasia

Dreaming Anastasia - Joy Preble While I generally liked this book, there were points were I really struggled to get through the book. Some of the plot felt contrived, and I couldn't really get into Anne and Ethan's story. To be honest, I was more interested in Anastasia's story and how she would deal with Baba Yaga. I did like that Tess got involved in the main plot, but she felt more incidental. I also couldn't grasp Viktor as a villain, I didn't understand what his full motives were and the random theories that Anne sprouted off just felt random. ("Oh, he hates his family! Oh, he wants to live forever!") If this wasn't the start to a series and treated more as a stand-alone novel, I would probably have liked it a lot better.
