Quarterly Review Round-Up and Giveaway

It is time for the Quarterly Review Round-Up where I talk about the best of the best, the one's I couldn't finish, and the adult novels I'm reading that I don't review here. Plus there's a GIVEAWAY.

Adult Books (links to reviews on Goodreads):
Autumn Sage by Genevieve Turner*
Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters
A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley
Once Upon a Rose by Laura Florand*

The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy by Julia Quinn
The Secret Heart by Erin Satie
The Sheriff Takes a Bride by Genevieve Turner
The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan
Sugar Rush by Diana Kauffman

*These were all 5 stars reads. Because I do the Giveaway through Book Depository, they can't be included but know they are part of the Best of the Best and come highly recommended by me.

The Best of the Best (where the Giveaway comes in):

Audacity by Melanie Crowder
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
 I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
Jinx's Fire by Sage Blackwood*

Listen Slowly by Thanhha Lai
The Penderwicks in Spring by Jeanne Birdsall*

Links to my reviews unless otherwise noted.


*Indicates later books in a trilogy or series. If you are wanting to begin with the first book and you win, I will allow you to choose that as your prize.

If you want to win one of the 5 star books I read this quarter, leave a comment below and tell me:
1) A favorite book of yours from the past few months.
2) Which of these books you are interested in if you win. (You can change your mind if you do.)
3) A way to reach you (email or Twitter handle) if you win. If you are using a Twitter handle, you may want to follow me in case I need to DM you.

Open to any reader who lives where Book Depository ships for free.

I will close this GIVEAWAY and choose a winner on Monday, April 6 at 8:00 PM EDT.


  1. I absolutely loved PRAIRIE FIRE, by E.K. Johnston. That was my favorite new book of the last couple of months. And I would love to win a copy of The Penderwicks in Spring!

    Thanks for holding this giveaway!


    1. I really enjoyed that one too. Cried and cried.

  2. My favorites for the first quarter of the year are Once Upon a Rose, Girl Before a Mirror, I'll Meet You There and The Deal. :) I still need to write reviews for all of those. Haha it's so funny how busy the past few months have been that I haven't had a chance to write ANY reviews. I would love to read Listen, Slowly or the first Jinx book!


    1. I have The Deal downloaded. Just need to read it!
