Review: My Lady Jane

My Lady Jane My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book, ,I received it as part of my Owl Crate subscription. There is such witty and fun banter between the characters and how can you not love a main character who likes to read as much as Jane does, even enjoyed the unique touch when the writers break in and talk to the reader as well.,

Review: Waiting for Paint to Dry

Waiting for Paint to Dry Waiting for Paint to Dry by Lia Mack
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I will put a trigger warning first, this is a well written novel about rape and abusive relationship as a teenager, the walls it created in the victim, how she dealt with PTSD and how therapy years later helped heal and lead to a more fulfilling and expressive lifestyle. Some of the therapy session in the book although not an abuse survivor I could relate to coming from a mental health perspective, so they rang true to me. Anything that opens up conversations about these topics so they don't just get swept under the rug is useful.
