Alex and Eliza
Alex and Eliza: A Love Story - Melissa de la Cruz,Cassandra Campbell
 
Alex and Eliza, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: I’m obsessed with all things Hamilton.

The Characters:

Alexander Hamilton:
Elizabeth Schuyler:
Angelica Schuyler, Peggy Schuyler,

The Story:

Writing:Very good but I expect nothing less from Ms de la Cruz
Forward Motion: This story moved well. The only pauses I had were to listen to tracks from the Hamilton Soundtrack.
Overall Interest: Good
Length of Reading Time: Seemed to be long on paper but I had a two day trip to NYC in which I didn’t read/listen to anything so really it was more like 7 days.
Re-read-ability: Probably not.

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:

Winds of Salem (The Beauchamp Family #3) by Melissa de la Cruz
Winds of Salem - Melissa de la Cruz

This installment of the trilogy was a let down. Coming off the cliffhanger that ended book two, I was expecting the action to continue. Instead I got life in Puritan Salem, MA for 85% of the book, interspersed with present day happenings that slowed down the plot, including a weird unrequited love of Thor towards Ingrid. I find Puritan history boring on the best day, this was more so. This book was kind of a mess plot wise, but still keeping true to the characters from book one and two, which made it any easy and fast read. The ending helped prop up my rating; I thought it was a fitting and gave a good foundation for a spin off series if the author chooses to do so. Just a lackluster ending to an addictive series for me.

Friday Reads - June 1, 2018
The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 - Christopher Clark
Winds of Salem - Melissa de la Cruz
One in a Million - Jill Shalvis
Wishing Lake (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart
When Summer Comes - Brenda Novak

Spent the day after Memorial Day at the doctor's, as my son came down with Strep Throat (must be his yearly need for amoxicillian, lol). Counting down to summer vacation (son has 8.5 days left and daughter has 4 days) and the reading for our library's Summer Reading Program started today. I wish I could read faster, but my seasonal allergies are a doozy this year and I am either in a sneezing fit, sinus pain, or blacked out due to allergy medications. 

 

I ended up finishing the Ann Rule book yesterday; luckily, I picked up the last book in the Beauchamp Family series, so I am reading Winds of Salem first. I am also going to buckle down and read The Sleepwalkers, even if it is just 50 pages at a time every day. For next week, I plan on reading One in a Million (last book in the last trilogy that forms the Lucky Harbor series), When Summer Comes (third book in the Whiskey Creek series) and Wishing Lake (third book in the Finding Home series).

 

Happy June and the beginnings of summer (which means daylight from 4 am to 11 pm here in England) or winter depending on which side of the equator you live on.
