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
A Great and Terrible Beauty  - Libba Bray Wonderful mix of Victorian mystery and a Gothic atmosphere. I was little wary about picking these books up for the first time, but the moment Gemma stepped into Spence and quickly became her own person, I was hooked. The set-up about the Order and the Realms takes a little too long to be introduced into the plot, and the major conflict of the book happened a little fast, as if this and “”Rebel Angels” were going to be one big volume. It really does read like a prologue, but it kept me entertained and curious to find out what happened next.
