Sunday Sunshine: Time Jump!

Just a quick PSA:  since you're reading this on your computer, you probably already know this, but it's an hour later than you think it is!  Happy time change!

Ok, friends, this school musical business is slowing me down a bit (I just don't read as fast when I'm falling asleep on the train!)

But here's what I read this week: 

The AcadémieThe Académie by Susanne Dunlap
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

**This is a book I got for free, in advance through Netgalley.**

I didn't realize while I was reading this that the eponymous school was a real one, and that these three young ladies were real historical figures who all attended it in real life (although not all together.) I definitely enjoyed the historical setting, and the multiple point-of-view narration. A few things pulled me out of the story a little--occasionally when things had to be explained, or when characters stopped to really belabor a particular belief--and the ending, while exciting, felt a little rushed--but overall I found this a very enjoyable story and I'm thinking about tracking down more info about the girls themselves.

Waiting in the Wings:



  1. The cover is really pretty, but I'm not sure if I'll rush out to read it. I have too many others that sound a little more exciting :) Partials does sound pretty interesting though.

  2. I'm just stopping by to let you know that I've tagged you on The Lucky 7 Meme. See my blog for details. :)


Thanks for coming by! Please chime in!
