Small Country ~ Gael Faye

Rating: 5/5 I definitely picked this book up for its gorgeous cover.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue ~ Mackenzi Lee

Rating: 4/5 I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted romp through Europe (no pun intended). Monty, Percy, and Felicity make an excellent cast of characters. Monty has his head stuck in the clouds, his ego clouding his better judgment. His coping skills are poor, and he runs around thinking about how to give himself pleasure from one … Continue reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue ~ Mackenzi Lee
