Hello Little Ducks,
So I have a backed up log of books and thought I would throw two reviews at you at once!
Especially considering I read these last year. Whoops.
Here’s “Moonlight Masquerade” by Jude Deveraux (from last summer.) and “A Place Called Here” by Cecelia Ahern.
Moonlight Masquerade–Jude Deveraux
In the summer I like to partake in at least one Jude Deveraux novel as I’m partial to not listening to a hardcore storyline while also wanting to read about people falling in love.
This one was a bit weird. But only because I felt like that story was a little forced and campy.
Don’t get me wrong, I still loved it.
It got a little old school corny though because the characters met under duress, then she was working for him and he was hiding his identity, and then a series of other randomness and finally a sexy picnic in costume.
It was just odd balls all around.
Funny and worth it if you are looking for that sort of thing and enjoy when things always end well in a book.

A Place Called Here–Cecelia Ahern
Set in Ireland, written by an author who isn’t afraid of the fantastical, and an interesting plot made for an excellent read!
I’ve had this on my shelf for awhile and was glad that I was led to reading with the BringingUpBurns book challenge. I had started this book awhile ago and then (ironically) lost it.
Under my bed.
You don’t get the irony because you haven’t read it, but let me explain.
This book is about where all the things that go missing are. It’s about where your bobbypins, socks, books, and sometimes: people, are.
It was a lovely read as always as a woman who has become obsessed with finding out where all the missing things are (since she was a girl and a childhood enemy went missing) and finally finds out.
