Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish that now has a new home at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Wooo, I’m not sure if I’m ready to cringe at my old reviews. I mean, I kind of want to, but I’m not sure if I’m ready. I thought I was going to have to take some of the earliest ones on my blog since I don’t remember reviewing a ton in the brief stretch of time I used Goodreads when I was 12. But I actually think I’ll have enough from there! I’m not going to be linking them, cause they are cringy and kinda embarrassing, but you could probably find them on my Goodreads if you really wanted too haha.

The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett

*Spoiler free*

Traveling with her treasure-hunting father has always been a dream for Theodora. She’s read every book in his library, has an impressive knowledge of the world’s most sought-after relics, and has all the ambition in the world. What she doesn’t have is her father’s permission. That honor goes to her father’s nineteen-year-old protégé—and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life—Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul. Until Huck arrives from an expedition without her father and enlists Theodora’s help in rescuing him. Armed with her father’s travel journal, the reluctant duo learns that her father had been digging up information on a legendary and magical ring that once belonged to Vlad the Impaler—more widely known as Dracula—and that it just might be the key to finding him. Journeying into Romania, Theodora and Huck embark on a captivating adventure through Gothic villages and dark castles in the misty Carpathian Mountains to recover the notorious ring. But they aren’t the only ones who are searching for it. A secretive and dangerous occult society with a powerful link to Vlad the Impaler himself is hunting for it, too. And they will go to any lengths—including murder—to possess it.

I’m a huge fan of Jenn Bennett books. She was written amazing contemporaries and I have loved her stories and her characters. This one is definitely more on the fantasy side, and I was looking forward to seeing how she writes a different genre! Plus, Theodora sounded amazing and I love treasure hunting books
