Review: A Certain Age

A Certain Age A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The 1920's were a time of great change in the US society. The WW1 just ended and it was an era of fast technological discoveries. After decades of inequality between men and women, the "not so fair" sex finally got her chance to fulfil her dreams. This independence brought women the right to vote, the right to work and the right to higher education. The 20's were also a time of fun and leisure and gave birth to the "The Flappers". These free spirited women could be found at the speakesies, a.k.a underground bars where alcohol was served illegally. They were known to have a good time, be carefree, independent and fashion innovators.

1920's flappers

A certain Age is all about that and more. It is a story of emancipation and love affairs, crimes of passion and finding love. Another fantastic book by Beatriz Williams. A great read!

Review: City of Dark Magic

City of Dark Magic City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Never judge a book by its cover, they say! I have to come clear and admit that I selected this book because of its cover... it is so beautiful! And guess what!!! The book was pretty awesome too! I love stories where the author uses the past to define the present. Especially when they used actual historical characters, documents or events. When I see a name I do not recognise; I google it and learn about who he/she/it was and their contribution to history. This book is full of these kinds of goodies: music composers, alchemists, religious personalities and royalties. This is a great story with lots of surprising plots. Love it!

Read it from first to last page and never got into it. I was waiting for the answers; they never came.
