Howdy YAL!

I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.

Manor of Secrets - Katherine Longshore

This is a huge disappointment.  Though I sort of expected it would be since it's trying to sell itself as the YA answer to Downton Abbey.  It's not.  There's no Matthew Crawley.  No Dowager Countess making witty insults.  And the plot is just dull and expected.  Yes, I know classism is bad in the period.  I've seen Manor House after all.  But can't you, I don't know be more original about it?
