Review: The Taxidermist’s Daughter

Chronicles of Tania

The Taxidermist's Daughter
The Taxidermist’s Daughter by Kate Mosse
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This crime story starts off boring and gets interesting as the pace picks up. There are graphic taxidermy descriptions which were too gory for me. The excerpts from the Taxidermy book at the end/beginning of each chapter didn’t add value.

Finished first draft of second novel

Chronicles of Tania

Hi Everyone,

I’m feeling hysterically happy about finally finishing the first draft of my second novel yesterday. It’s been two years in the writing and I can tell you it’s a relief to get to the end! Celebrated yesterday with a lovely tropical cocktail after our Write Together session in Notting Hill. From this week starts the long task of editing…

Review: Retribution

Chronicles of Tania

Retribution
Retribution by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this Wild West hired gun and Cherokee Indian mythology themed story set in modern day Las Vegas. The author has put some research into the beliefs of this Red Indian tribe and passion into her writing and it comes across. The author note at the back of the book says she’s part Cherokee. No wonder as a reader you can visualise yourself right there with the Guardians, Coyote, the Crow, Buffalo and Butterfly in this timeslip novel. But I have to say I just wanted to eat chocolate each time I read Choo-co-la-tah! What a fabulous name for a Guardian. I’d follow the chocolate! 😛

Review: The Man from Pomegranate Street

Chronicles of Tania

The Man from Pomegranate Street
The Man from Pomegranate Street by Caroline Lawrence
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the last book in the series of seventeen books where the characters come into danger with their lives, live in exile in Egypt, grow up and two very young characters get married. There is plenty of action in this book with journeys, rescues, relationship entanglements. Definitely worth a read.
