Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Dreaming Anastasia

Dreaming Anastasia - Joy Preble I love fiction having to do with the Romanovs, especially Anastasia and Alexei (Alexei would have made this book so much cooler). Anne is a normal girl, going to ballet lessons with her best friend Tess, worrying about school and missing her brother, who died of cancer. Strange things begin to happen--she meets a guy, who is possibly 100+ years old, around when the Romanovs were alive, and insists that she's the only one who can save Anastasia, who's living in the hut with Baba Yaga, a witch from Russian folklore.I like it. It's decent, after all, it is young adult fiction. Romanovs make me happy. The romance between Anne and Ethan is cute and likable, though it ends on a strange note for the opening of the second novel. The only real complaint I have is that I don't like Tess, she's pretty annoying to me.
