Review:    Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai

Review:    Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai

Hate to Want You ended up on a lot of “Best of ” lists last year, but I didn’t read it until just this past weekend. This is the first book in an as yet unfinished series (the third and final book will be published later this year), and the buzz about this series was so intense I finally gave in and bought it.

Review:   Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

Daisy Goodwin, the author of the book Victoria, is also the creator and writer of the television series Victoria. From what I understand, this book covers most of the same material that is shown in the first season of the television show. I myself have not seen it (which in the U.S. is shown as part of Masterpiece on PBS), but I did very much enjoy the 2009 movie The Young Victoria, starring Emily Blunt. When I saw
