As a true lover of a good book, and a good bookstore, I often find myself drifting towards the big name booksellers online.

When I read the Twilight novels by Stephenie Meyer, I was sufficiently underwhelmed. I found the plot line engaging and fun, but wasn’t impressed by Meyer’s writing style. And don’t even get me started on the movies… Ugh. Now, before Team Edward arranges for my public lynching, hear me out: I may have been wrong about Meyer’s writing.

Gregory’s “The White Queen” Enchants
As the debut novel in her new series Cousins’ War, Philippa Gregory’s New York Times Bestseller The White Queen is an engaging read. Back-tracking the line of the English throne, Gregory explores the intricacies of a royal line predating the Tudors, one largely glossed over by romantic historians for being too violent: the War of the Roses. During a time of frequent political upheaval, with power shifting regularly between the two houses of York and Lancaster, Gregory’s characters are tossed about in a stormy sea of betrayal, intrigue, mysteries, and courtly love.

In front of the country’s eyes, Melissa seemed to painlessly transcend the role of Laura, playing such meaty roles as Anne Frank and Helen Keller while still in her teens. However, things were not always as peachy as they seemed for young … Read More »
