Razorhurst, Ana of California and Small Steps| #stickynotereviews

I’ve been saying that I’m not usually a fan of fiction in historical settings for years. I think it’s about time for me to rescind that comment. I also do not have much experience with literature set in historical times and other countries. After reading Razorhurst, I want to remedy that reading gap.


I’ve never read Anne of Green Gables. I’ve been told, however, that it is (at the very least) a movie I need to see. It just never spoke to me. Ana of California, on the other hand, had me drawing on some of the experiences of my students. Needless to say, I was engaged. And enjoyed it.


A friend of mine suggested I read Small Steps at brunch about a month ago. I’m usually not a fan of sequels told from the point of view of another character (which is why I didn’t read this back in 2006), but I was pleasantly surprised and intrigued. This is actually the book that propelled me into my new research topic.
