February Wrap Up

This month I read quite a few books and really don’t know how I found the time. It all flew by too quickly but they always say time flies when you’re having fun! This month I read a shocking (to me) seven books. Those seven books were (drum roll please):

  1. Helter Skelter: The Manson Murders
  2. A Star Called Henry
  3. Esme’s wish
  4. The attempted read of Obsidian
  5. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
  6. All The Light There Was
  7. Dancing at Lughnasa

I have noticed a major shift in my reading. I noticed I prefer more Irish Literature and True Crime. I am not complaining since I am expanding what I read but it amazes me to look back and see this shift. It is always good to look back and see where you started and where you are going. 🙂

Esme’s Wish


Do you remember the story of Atlantis? Do you know all of the Greek gods and goddesses? Can you imagine both in a story?

Whether you answered yes or no to those questions I have a book for you! Esme’s Wish is a really good story for those that love Fantasy. It combines the world of Atlantis and Greek gods and goddesses. My favorite part of this story is the love Esme has for her mother. She shows loyalty to her even when everyone gave up. Which going off of her hometown I would say is strong devotion.

I love the inclusion of ‘gifts’ and the surprises it brings to Esme on her journey.

Read the book! Find out more! 🙂

Title: Esme’s Wish

Author: Elizabeth Foster

Publisher: Odyssey Books

Publication date: 30 October 2017

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy



“A fresh new fantasy of an enchanting world.” – Wendy Orr, author of Nim’s Island and Dragonfly Song.

When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father’s wedding, her protest is dismissed as the action of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme’s mother, Ariane – so why can’t she?

But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother’s disappearance – that ‘lost at sea’ is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.

After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about her mother, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.

This fresh, inventive tale is an ideal read for younger teens.
