Book Review of THE CLOISTERS

Tartlets, I’m a bit confused about my thoughts on The Cloisters. When I first finished reading this suspense novel that combines medieval art history, dark academia, and astrology, I really liked it. Then, after talking with a few people, I realized that I didn’t like this book as much as I think I did. You […] The post Book Review of THE CLOISTERS appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Book Review of HAMNET

I hated Hamlet, the famous play by William Shakespeare. But, I adored HamNet, the novel by Maggie O’Farrell. This work of historical fiction has been on my TBR list for a little while, but because of the title, I was reluctant to dive in. Luckily, a friend reassured me that the novel Hamnet has very […] The post Book Review of HAMNET appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Book Review of THE SPARROW SISTERS

A couple years ago, I tried reading The Forbidden Garden, which is actually the second book in the Sparrow Sisters series by Ellen Herrick. I made it a few pages in before putting it aside; I just couldn’t get into the story or keep the characters straight.  Now, I know why — I was supposed […] The post Book Review of THE SPARROW SISTERS appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Yes, this is the first book review I’ve posted in quite awhile. And, yes, I’m reviewing a book titled The Winter Sea even though it’s springtime. I’m just wacky like that.  Hello, Tartlets! It’s been a hot minute. (An update about that will go up later this week.) Sorry it’s taken me so darn long to […] The post Book Review of THE WINTER SEA appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Book Review of CHRISTMAS CHARMS (A Cozy Holiday Romance)
A Well Read Tart » Magical Realism
by CJ | A Well-Read Tart
1y ago
Christmas Charms came into my life right when I needed it the most. I was sifting through the library stacks for a holiday book that would make me feel “Christmassy.” A book where, like, the biggest problems are getting all the children’s toys wrapped in time, or making sure the Christmas cookies aren’t pulled from […] The post Book Review of CHRISTMAS CHARMS (A Cozy Holiday Romance) appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Tartlets, it’s Two-fer Tuesday! The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine and The Bakeshop at Pumpkin and Spice are set in the same enchanting world of Moonbright, Maine, so I thought it’d be fun to do a dual book review today. LOOK AT THESE BOOK COVERS. And these titles! With the fall season in full swing, […] The post Dual Book Review: THE COTTAGE ON PUMPKIN AND VINE and THE BAKESHOP AT PUMPKIN AND SPICE appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Book Review of A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES

I’m just going to come out and say it. **deep breath** A Discovery of Witches is Twilight for adults. **cringes** And y’know what? I liked Twilight better. **ducks as A Discovery of Witches fans throw things at her**  C’mon, people! I can’t be the first person to draw parallels between Deborah Harkness’ series and the wildly popular vampire books by […] The post Book Review of A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Book Review of THE BONE HOUSES
A Well Read Tart » Magical Realism

The Bone Houses has one of the best first lines I’ve ever read: “The evening air smelled pleasantly of a fresh grave.” I mean, come on. HOW CAN YOU NOT GET SUCKED IN BY THAT? Talk about imagery. Take notes, fellow writers. This is just one example of author Emily Lloyd-Jones’s beautiful writing in this young […] The post Book Review of THE BONE HOUSES appeared first on A Well-Read Tart ..read more

Book Review of THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LA RUE

The Invisble Life of Addie La Rue was another different type of read for me: fantasy. This creative story by V.E. Schwab is rich and complex; it’s detailed and emotional; it’s sweet and exciting. There are SO many things going on in this behemoth of a novel that it’s hard to pinpoint what to talk about.
