Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’m Thankful I Reviewed

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week is all about being thankful!  I’m so glad I have the opportunity to review for Long and Short Reviews.  I’ve discovered so many wonderful books and authors over the years.  Here are ten books or series I’m thankful I had the opportunity to read and review.

The Magician’s Workshop Series by Christopher Hansen and J.R. Fehr-This series is so much fun!  I could not put these books down.  The longer I read, the more I enjoyed this series.  I’m anxiously awaiting Volume 3.  Here are my reviews of Volume 1 and Volume 2.


Eagle En Garde by Olga Godim-I reviewed this fantasy a few years ago, but it is one that has stuck with me.  Here is my review.


Heroes for Hire: Discount Prices by C.S. Feldman-I’m always up for a great fantasy, adventure story, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one.  Here is my review.


Persephone, Daughter of Earth and Sky, and The Iron Queen by Kaitlyn Bevis-I love Greek mythology and these books put an interesting spin on the myth of Persephone and Hades.  There are more books in the Daughters of Zeus series, and I fully intend to read them.  Here are my reviews for Persephone, Daughter of Earth and Sky, and The Iron Queen.


Blistered, Priestess, and Warrior by Deidre Huesmann-This is another series based on Greek mythology.  All three of these books are very compelling, and I truly enjoyed watching all the characters grow and change over the course of the trilogy.  Here are my reviews for Blistered, Priestess, and Warrior.


Blind Eye and Blood Moon by Marilyn Todd-These are the first two books in a mystery series set in ancient Greece.  I have yet to read the third book, but it is definitely on my tbr list.  Here are my reviews of Blind Eye and Blood Moon.


Mercy of the Moon by Jennifer Taylor-This is a fantastic story.  The characters stayed with me long after I finished reading it.  Here is my review.


Fallen Grace by Katie Roman-A great young adult fantasy adventure.  Here is my review.


First Frost and Glass Frost by Liz DeJesus-I love fairy tale retellings and Ms. DeJesus has certainly done a great job.  I really need to read the last book in the series!  Here is my review of First Frost and Glass Frost.


Trajectories, Gathering Speed, and Flying in the Dark by Tess Grant-This paranormal trilogy is gripping.  I couldn’t read it fast enough.  Here are my reviews of Trajectories, Gathering Speed, and Flying in the Dark.


How about you?  What books are you thankful for?  Have you read any of these?  If so, what did you think?

  15. I can’t say I’ve read any books on this list, but there are definitely some I would like to try out! Great creative choices, I’ve seen many the same books return in many lists this week!

    • Poinsettia says:

      One of the things I like most about reviewing for Long and Short Reviews is that I have the chance to read books from smaller publishers. I’ve found so many gems over the years that I wouldn’t have otherwise known about. I’m so glad you enjoyed my list, and I hope you check out some of the books. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  16. Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t heard of any of these before! Looks like I have some books to add to my growing TBR pile. Great list!

    Thank you for stopping by The Novelistics

    • Poinsettia says:

      Thank you! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. I know what you mean about the growing tbr list! No matter how much I read, there are always more books to add!

  17. Sorry I haven’t heard of any of these books! I tend to stick to apocalypse, horror and urban fantasy these days! Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  18. I shall have to look up some of these – I haven’t read any of them but I do enjoy retellings and Greek mythology so I’m intrigued.
    Lynn 😀

  19. None of these are books I’m familiar with. However, the cover for “Persephone” sure is stunning! I love that bright pop of pink against the dark, dreary shades of the landscape. So pretty. 🙂

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving – and thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.
