The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel - Book Review

"The Roanoke Girls" by Amy Engel is one dark, disturbing, and twisty tale and it's kind of a page turner! We follow main character Lane Roanoke, and as her story moves from past to present we see how she came to live with her grandparents on the Roanoke plantation after her mother committed suicide, and we see some of the darker and more sinister sides of this shared family secret in a small town. This book has a 3.7 Goodreads rating and I think that's fair, I gave it 3 stars. I did enjoy parts of this book, but honestly it wasn't that much of a thriller for me. "Roanoke Girls" to me was an incredibly steamy read, but besides even those scenes this book made me incredibly uncomfortable due to the secret and twist in the book that I think readers will figure out pretty early in. Have you read "Roanoke Girls"? Comment down below and let me know what you thought of the book!

Many thanks to the author and publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Beneath A Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan - Book Review

"Beneath A Scarlet Sky" by Mark Sullivan 
Book Review and Discussion

"Beneath A Scarlet Sky" is based upon the life of Pino Leila an Italian teenager who during World War II had an incredibly unique, fascinating, and heroic life. As an experienced mountain climber, Pino helped numerous families escape to safety by crossing the Alps. In an attempt to keep him safe during the war, his parents asked Pino to sign up as a Nazi soldier, but ultimately in his classic Pino way, he traded in safety and became a spy. While reading "Beneath A Scarlet Sky" I would get through an entire chapter of absolutely insane things that happened to Pino and I would have to go back because it wasn't until after finishing that I would realize how easy it was to just pass them over. Despite the excitement happening in the plot of this life, the author did not do much to add to the sense of suspense for the reader. I really enjoyed the unique perspective of this book because it is uncommon to get the perspective of an Italian teenager in a WWII historical fiction novel.
