A coming-of-age, quirky story about the Brontes' last surviving ancestor, and the scavenger hunt her dead father sets for her from beyond the grave.
It's part coming-of-age, part feminine awakening.
A perfect read for anyone who wants to appreciate woman's footprint in history, is interested in paleontology and fossils, or just wants a damn good read, Remarkable Creatures is it. I can find no fault in the book. From the beautiful rendition of a period piece, to the conversations, the interweaving of history, to the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth, it's a perfectly written novel.
Well-researched, along with photos, headlines, and historical notes, Suspect Red is a great historical fiction read! Even though it's middle grade, I still enjoyed reading it and learned a bit more about life during the Red Scare. The historical backdrop is woven deftly throughout the story, and at the end, there's a list of resources for further reading.
Olive is just as likable as Nancy Drew, and the mystery is as thought out as an Agatha Christie one, though without quite as much mood and intrigue.
Ivory and Bone is an Ice Age retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
