I have to admit that I truly loved reading this book and felt it was interesting from the first page. I really did not want to put it down.  Miller is an amazing writer!

The story is about Sal, a street fighter and highway thief, that auditions for a place on the Queen’s Left Hand. Which is her trusted band of assassins. Continue reading

Being a Witch, and Other Things I Didn’t Ask For by Sara Pascoe

being a witchI found that Being a Witch, and Other Things I Didn’t Ask For by Sara Pascoe was a very fun book to read! Raya is a teenage girl that is in foster care and does not realize that she is a witch.  She and her cat Oscar go on a series of adventures all while learning and adapting to her new found powers. Being a Witch is written with amazing characters and plot line. The setting for this book in unreal. Pascoe does an outstanding job in creating and writing about the settings so that you feel as if you are really there enjoying the fun Raya and Oscar. The story time travels back to the witch trials and teaches you a little about the history of the trials.  I found this book fast paced and very exciting to read.  You really do not want to miss out on this young adult read. **I received this book free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.** You can get you copy HERE.

(from amazon.com) When you’re fourteen and life has been nothing but hurt and disappointment, Raya decides it’s time to strike out on her own. She leaves the boring village and what she’s determined will be her last foster placement, for the excitement of London. But it turns out she’s a witch, with the annoying habit of time-travelling — by accident. And a sarcastic witch’s cat Oscar tags along for the ride. Why would she fling herself into the midst of the Essex Witch Trials in 1645 England? After being arrested by one of history’s most notorious witch hunters, her social worker and witch mentor Bryony goes back to try to save them from the gallows. But returning to present day London remains out of reach when they find themselves in 1645 stanbul/Constantinople. There, life is more amazing than she ever dreamed. Can she stay? And at what cost?
