A Tale of Two Murders by Heather Redmond

A Tale of Two Murders by Heather Redmond

A Tale of Two Murders is book one in A Dickens of a Crime series. This one is a historical mystery following a young Charles Dickens who is a journalist. A young woman winds up dead after a dinner party & the death looks suspiciously like one that happened exactly a year ago, so Charles decides to investigate.

This one is a gripping story and I loved the aspect of a young Charles Dickens. Very mysterious, an awesome setting & an interesting mystery!

Simon was planning on revealing some juicy secrets on the gossip app, he created, the very next day. Whose secrets are bad enough to try and stop him?

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crown by Kendare Blake

It’s been a fair while since I read this book but this was one of my faves of 2017! An interested & unique world/magic system and a competition! Sounds awesome! I’m yet to finish this series as I need to do a full reread before continuing and I just haven’t gotten around to it but I might have to make it a priority!

Three Dark Crowns is set in Fennbirn & each generation 3 princesses are born as triplets. They are separated at a young age and are taught to hone their unique magical abilities. An Elemental, a Poisoner & a Naturalist. The night of their sixteenth birth the battle to the death begins to decide which will become queen.

Finding Wonders: Three girls who changed science by Jeannie Atkins

Finding Wonders: Three Girls who Change Science by Jeannine Atkins

Let’s take a complete turn here and talk about a non fiction story written in verse! This is another one I read back in 2017 and I really enjoyed it! As someone that doesn’t love poetry I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

It tells the stories of 3 girls throughout history who made an impact on science. It’s a fascinating read & also super short. So if you are looking for a shorted non fiction that’s written well & full of women then this is the book for you.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

You’ve probably all heard of this one but I can’t make a post about books with numbers in the title and no recommend Ready Player One! I’ve read this one multiple times and it’s absolutely incredible!

Ready Player One is a sci-fi story that is set mostly in a virtual reality called the Oasis. The creator of the Oasis left a puzzle to solve when he died and whoever completes it will win everything including ownership of the Oasis its self. We follow Wade who like everyone has dreamed of winning but then suddenly he stumbles on to the first part of the puzzle and things become very real! He is not only now a target in the game but there are people willing to kill to win the prize. The only way to get the target off his back is to win.


Well that is the 5 books I’ll be recommending today! Do you have any recommendations that fit this category? or suggestions for other categories you want recommendations for? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading! Eliza
