Need a New Book Series to Get into Ladies?

I wanted to mention a good book series that I read over the fall and this past month. The author is Libba Bray and the series is the Gemma Doyle Trilogy. First book is called A Great and Terrible Beauty. It's followed by Rebel Angels and concludes with Sweet Far Thing. Even though these books are classified as YA reading I really enjoyed the story line and the characters were well developed in my opinion. I couldn't put the little things down and when that happens, that makes a good book for me. They have pretty much everything from the 19th century Victorian era, mystery, romance and magic. Super good . . . a few years ago I would never had read something like this but my tastes are expanding.

Check them out. They would make a great January read.


  1. Hmmm, I might have to check those out. I always love a good book recommendation. I just watched "The Other Boleyn Girl," so this old school stuff is still lingering in my mind. Thank you!

  2. I read these a few months ago and I really liked them too! Glad I found your blog! :)
