4.5 stars. I loved a lot of this book. It's Britain v. France in the Napoleonic wars plus dragons. If you know anything about me, you'll know that the best part was, of course, the dragons. Temeraire (the main dragon) is amazing and beautiful and rem ...more

Kelley is 50% done with Reconstructing Amelia: So I'm reading this on Kindle and I noticed the app has started displaying minutes left instead of pages or % done. This is so awesome--especially for the commute!

A good conclusion to the series. The ending left a bit to be desired, it felt very rushed but it was satisfying. My main issue was the lack of a Janelle perspective. Everything is seen through everyone else's eyes, would've been nice to see what she ...more

I loved this book so much! I got the audiobook narrated by Caitlin Moran so it was even better to hear her intonations and accents. This is a modern woman's feminist manifesto and it's brilliant and funny as hell. Her view of feminism is more of the ...more

I loved this. Such a fun book... especially considering it's about a murder and domestic abuse. But it's not really, it's about friendships and parenting and relationships also. I had a hard time putting this down.
