The summary of Finding Yvonne sounded interesting and rather unique enough – Yvonne plays violin, but she’s just not good enough to get into conservatories after high school. But then she becomes pregnant, which throws another wrench into her plans! Oh no! However, the story honestly didn’t feel anything like the summary and both the music aspect and the pregnancy played smaller roles than I would have expected and I was disappointed with this overall.

While I have read my fair share of manga, I will admit I haven’t read too many America/European graphic novels, but when I saw my favorite author Scott Westerfeld was a part of this, I knew I had to pick it up – and I loved it! (If you’re a fan of Stranger Things, I think you’ll enjoy this series!)

This book is SO MUCH FUN! If you’re looking for a lighthearted comedic read, pick up this book, My Plain Jane, or the previous book by the Lady Janies (what the authors call themselves), My Lady Jane. This is a retelling of Jane Eyre….but with a twist or a hundred thrown in. It’s not the story you know.
I will preface this by saying I have never read Jane Erye and I enjoyed this story completely! You don’t need to have read My Lady Jane or Jane Eyre to enjoy this. While this is sort of part of a series, it reads as a standalone.

Ahhhhh! I have to thank my boyfriend for fighting for a ticket to get this book at Bookcon. The swag he got was also awesome and it fit perfectly with this story!

I’ve fallen a bit behind with Ghosts of the Shadow Market novella releases, but that just means I can read multiple stories at once, and post multiple reviews back to back!
Spoilers for The Mortal Instruments & The Infernal Devices series.
If you haven’t finished both series, don’t read this short story and don’t read my review! 🙂 (No spoilers for Dark Artifices series.)
I will put these spoiler warnings before all Ghosts of the Shadow Market reviews, but a rule of thumb in the Shadowhunter world is – if you aren’t caught up, read it in publication order.
Title: Son of the Dawn
Author: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan
Series: Ghosts of the Shadow Market #1
