  1. Sad to see that A Darker Shade of Magic and Cruel Beauty were disappointments. I want to read them later this year and I've heard great things. What made them disappointing? Great TTT post! Here is my post!

    1. I was very excited to read both ADSoM and Cruel Beauty. And was disappointment by both and I didn't care much for the plots.

  2. I want to read so many on your list - especially the Deanna Madden series. I know I own the first one. I wished you had thought more of the Tyranny of Petticoats book because I had thought about buying it. Maybe I will see if my library plans on ordering a copy.

    1. I love the Deanna Madden series, that was so outside of my comfort zone and I was so happy I pick it up.

      Tyranny of Petticoats - From the title of the book and the tagline I was expecting something more from this book. With words like bank robbers and badass girls and petticoats I was imagining 15 short stories set in the wild Wild West. There is a picture of a six shooter on the cover, for crying out loud.

      Instead I got stories about the Alaskan frontier, voodoo queen, monsters, witches, warlocks, goblins, vampires, slavery and Civil War (The American Civil War not Captain America: Civil War).

  3. Great list!! I havent read some of these but I will check them out.
    Added you on Goodreads and liked your Facebook page!
