Dark Triumph

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wish I hadn't waiting so long to read this second one. Such a great series. A little historical fiction with lady assassins and an element of fantasy. How could it not be good?

Worth reading in one sitting and staying up too late to finish. I look forward to reading more by this author.

Twenty and Ten

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Listened to the fantastic audio version with my kids. Based on a true story, this is a great way to introduce WW2 to a younger audience and older kids will really engage with it too. My kids were sad when it was time to stop listening each day.

The Penderwicks at Point Mouette

We missed Rosalind in this one, but loved the vacation in Maine. Our family adores the Penderwicks and Jeffrey.
