Thank you for reading,
It’s been a long time since I posted a review both because of school and an annoying reading slump.
First of all thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for the digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Genre: Graphic Novel, Music, History
Illustrations by Erica Chan
Publisher: Animal Media Group LLC
Expected publication:October 9th 2018
My rating: 3.75 out of 5
PLOT:A coming of age tale, this is the first installment of the Thin Thinline Trilogy, the fiercely independent Nina Overstreet has an axe to grind. A talented singer-songwriter slogging her way through the burgeoning Greenwich Village folk music scene of 1963, the Queen of Kenosha, Wisconsin, realizes that standing on the cusp of stardom gets her little respect and barely a cup of coffee in New York City. It finally comes, but in a way she could have never imagined. A chance encounter with the mysterious Nick Ladd at a late-night gig spins her life in a different direction–one that becomes a daily balance between life and death, right and wrong. Nick recruits Nina to join him and a team of ex-FBI operatives in a clandestine agency to stop the establishment of the Fourth Reich by undercover Nazis in post-War America. It’s a cause Nina believes in … until she’s forced to compromise the very principles of fairness and patriotism she holds dear. As she and Nick grow closer as partners, she forces him to question his own intentions. But as the body count mounts in pursuit of the Nazi ringleader, the evasive Alex, the stakes grow even higher for Nick and Nina.

So I just signed up on Netgalley and while I was looking for some books to request I found this book and without even reading the description I requested it because of the awesome cover!
This book is set in the 60s (which I didn’t know until I finished it and read the back cover :D) and it deals with a young singer that discovers an organization that has to take down the Nazis that escaped to America after WWII. more “Review: Queen Of Kenosha by Howard Shapiro”

I’m finally back and I’m so excited to write some new posts such as reviews and tags!
How are you all doing? Since I’ve been out of the bookish world for some months, do you have any news?
The “Down The TBR Hole”, a meme by Lia @ Lost In A Story and this is how it works:
– Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
– Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
– Read the synopses of the books
– Decide: keep it or should it go?
I recently got into the YA-contemporary-romance genre and I love it, so I’m going to give it a try (the main character also works in a bookstore so why not) and keep it!

- Plot: ‘This is a story about vigilantes and magic.
About prophecy and hope.
About a boy and his hotel.
When twelve-year-old Peter Constantine wakes up in the Crown Hotel with a new identity, life isover ashe knows it. But perhaps that’s not such a bad thing…
A dangerous man Peter only knows as“The Client”is after his family, so they’ve relocated toNew York City. With help from unlikely friends living at the glamorous hotel, including the ghost on the tenth floor, Peter’s new life begins.

Today I’m going to join the “Down The TBR Hole”, a meme by Lia @ Lost In A Story, checking 5 books on my TBR and trying to get rid of the ones I’m not going to read any time soon!
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
This is retelling of cinderella in the modern days with a sprinkle of geekiness. Even if I like geeky things I’m going to let it go because I’m not a fan of Cinderella and this type of romantic things.
