Written in My Own Heart’s Blood – Review

Title:  Written in My Own Heart’s Blood

Author:  Diana Gabaldon

Published:  June 2014, by Delacorte

Genre:  This is tricky. Historical Fiction, Suspense, Romance

Buy:  Amazon


Okay, so this is book eight of my all time favorite series, ever.  If you haven’t read Outlander (book 1), go read it.  It does take some people a little bit to get into, but once I read the first two books there was no going back.  Hi, I’m Pam, and I’m addicted to Outlander.  I even ordered Starz so I could watch the series.

Anyways, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood.  Kind of a gross title, but eh, what are you gonna do?  I recently wrote a review about another favorite series of mine, and I was glad that it was finally ending on book eight.  This series however, I don’t want it to end.  Ever.  I love the characters and Mrs. Gabaldon is just an amazing writer.

My one wish would be that it would go to two POVs, Claire’s and Brianna’s.  I like novels with singular POVs and that’s how Outlander started out.  I get that Mrs. Gabaldon wants to tell the stories of other important characters, but Claire is my favorite, and I felt like this book was lacking a bit in the Claire and Jamie department.  I wanted more!

But I’m sure I’ll get more….in the next book.

So if you haven’t picked up Outlander, and you like historical fiction, what are you waiting for?

And if you’ve read it and don’t like it?  I don’t even want to talk to you.

Just kidding. A little.

My Rating: 5 Stars






Eire’s Captive Moon Review

Title:  Eire’s Captive Moon

Author:  Sandi Layne

Published:  2013 by The Writer’s Coffee Shop

Genre:  Historical Fiction

Purchase Éire’s Captive Moon from Amazon



Chagris was found, well she was found inside her mother.  A local medicine man found her mother about to give birth in a cave and he helped her.  Chagris’s mother passed away right after, and the medicine man helped raise Chagris and taught her his ways.  Fast forward to Chagris’s adulthood.  She is married to not one, but two men; twins.  Her town is ransacked, her husbands slaughtered, and she is taken captive by a man named Agnarr.  She not only becomes his slave in the proverbial sense, but also his to use for sex.  Agnarr is kind in the way that he doesn’t beat her and treats her gently.  Will she find love with him or kill him in revenge for her husbands’ deaths?

I won this book in a giveaway and brought it with me to pass time while I waited for my son in speech class one day.  I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did.  I came home and read it that night, then finished it two days later.

This book outraged me, or rather Chagris being a slave did.  It baffles me that her owners just wanted her to serve them with no complaints but they just killed her family and took her to a foreign land.  Don’t they see that?  I know that this is probably how things were with slavery, but wow, did it make my blood boil.  And the fact that it made me mad just shows that it’s a well written book.

Although she’s being put through hell, Chagris has someone that she can talk to, another slave taken at the same time as her, Cowan.  Cowan is valued for his knowledge of many languages and translating abilities.  He wants Chagris to keep her head up and stay safe, because although he isn’t acting like it, he can’t wait to be free himself.

Will there be romance between Chagris and Cowan?  Or Chagris and Agnarr?  Neither, or perhaps both?   I guess you’ll have to read it to find out.  All I’ll say is I’m glad I picked it up because I was pleasantly surprised.



My Rating:  4 out of 5 stars

A Lot of Pride and Some Prejudice Review

Title:  A Lot of Pride and Some Prejudice

Author:  Petronela Ungureanu

Published:  2013 by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing, LLC

Genre:  Historical Romance, Novella

Purchase A Lot Of Pride And Some Prejudice from Amazon



Portia Thorpe grudgingly agrees to a marriage arranged by her father to Lord Salisbury.  He is much older than her and she has no interest in him; she just decides to do it for her father’s sake.  But Portia changes her mind when she meets Lord Salisbury’s brother, Phillip.  She feels an instant attraction to him and decides to back out of the marriage.  However, things don’t always go as planned as there is a sudden death in Portia’s family that turns all her plans around.

I was not expecting this book to be so wonderful.  The flow of the sentences was just smooth and refreshing.  I felt like I was thrown back in time.  It was such a nice change from the contemporary romances and other books I’ve been reading lately.

One major issue was the grammar and editing mistakes.  In one instance there were no quotes when someone was talking.  I counted at least three times when people ‘took a sit’ instead of ‘took a seat.’  And I really don’t know if this was done on purpose or not, but the beginning was one huge paragraph.

One other thing that irked me was how quickly Portia fell for Phillip Salisbury.  Her heart hurt a lot when she found out he was engaged.  It is the fact that she only met him the day before that bothered me about that.  Maybe if she had even spent a little more time with him it would have felt more justified.  Or maybe I’m just not a love at first sight type of girl?

Besides the grammar and love at first sight issues, the only thing that I wish was different was that it was a little longer!  It was a super-fast enjoyable read.  If someone could go back and re edit, I think that would make a world of difference.

All in all, I definitely recommend.  Keep an eye out for Petronela Ungureanu for she has a talent with words.

I’m not usually into novellas unless it’s part of a series I follow.  But I picked up ‘Twas the Night Before Mischief after reading Reading With Analysis’s thoughts on it.  (Awesome site, check it out!)  Plus I hadn’t already read a Christmas book this year and I was feeling like I wanted to.

Penelope Darlington falls for the wrong guy, a rake with a bad reputation.  She runs off with him, only to be abandoned when his mother won’t let him marry her.  Staying at an inn with hardly any money left, Penelope isn’t sure what is going to happen next.  In walks Darius Hall, the earl’s son and also her childhood family friend.  Darius is to bring Penelope back home, per her father, but love will be found between the two along the way.

Darius was a bit too serious for me.  He was incredibly smart and a bit odd in his way of thinking.  He was awkward and couldn’t always project his thoughts the right way, causing friction between himself and Penelope.

Penelope was decent, nothing about her bothered me.  But then again, nothing about her really stood out to me either.

I did enjoy the story, but it just didn’t stick with me.  So if you’re looking for a quick read, it is a good book, just not great.




My Rating:  3 out of 5 stars
