    One thought on “Tangled Webs”

    1. What was she doing She had one job tonight She had not come to the masquerade to lose herself in wistful dreams Or in the eyes of the most intriguing young man she d ever met She should not wonder which exotic lands he had seen, nor wish to hear about them No, she should be meeting Lord Huntington and finishing up Bones s business Yet there she stood.This book is fantastic if you re into insta love, love triangles, and an allegedly cunning spy whose mind is constantly preoccupied with romance T [...]

    2. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Disney Book Group and NetGalley What if she could turn Arista into a proper lady who could attend the parties where jewels and money were ripe for the picking Bones s greed had become their savior There wasn t anything awful about this book, I just didn t really enjoy it.Arista was a girl who did her job well, and looked out for those she cared about She wasn t treated well, but at least she wasn t forced [...]

    3. Beautiful exteriors often hide the nastiest things, in life and literature alike We learn that lesson very early in life, and we readers quickly learn to be wary of gorgeous covers But the wariness can make us miss out, and Tangled Webs has a lot to offer than just the pretty swirls and colors on its dust jacket Not many YA books take place in the 18th century, so when I first read London 1725 in the summary, I was immediately drawn to it It must be said that Tangled Webs doesn t offer many his [...]

    5. Actual Rating 2.5 This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoI haz mixed feelings about this book and that makes me very sad I really wanted to love it and love it I did not.Before getting into the nitty gritty, I just wanted to give a shout out to whoever was in charge of all the artwork on the pages and whoever was in charge of the cover because holy guacamole, can I get a GORGEOUSSSSS On to serious stuff though Lady A was not exactly what I expected She is not nearly as badass as I [...]

    6. First, I must say that whoever wants to read this should not rely on the synopsis too much I picked this one because of the cover it s like a scrapbook and I love scrap booking spoiler alerts but minimisedThe story sets in London, 1725, and I find it intriguing when I read the synopsis because I always find London interesting especially if it sets way back The protagonist s name, Arista didn t turn me on at all I didn t like the name but she turned out to be lovable and admirable She is a notori [...]

    7. Nothing beats the crushing disappointment you feel when one of your most anticipated books falls flat Tangled Webs had lots of promise yet failed to deliver all that it promised to give The synopsis has everything I d love to see in a book The story hardly matches all that the synopsis claims.To start, the setting of this novel is London in 1725 London is a fascinating city in my opinion Send me to London in any book in any year, and I ll be pleased The one stipulation is that you develop the st [...]

    8. Source Thank you to Nori for lending an ARC of this book to me Ehhh That sums up how I feel about Tangled Webs I don t have much to say about it because not much stood out to me My biggest issue with the book was Lady A She didn t seem developed enough She was supposedly the most notorious blackmailer according to the description which sounds awesome but she didn t do much There was not much to her I also don t quite grasp her role in the dealings I guess I was just expecting it to be interest [...]

    9. I sense a love triangle coming.But a female protagonist as a blackmailer Holy Crap I m pretty excited Edit 12 29 Well, I hate to say it, but I was seriously dissapointed I didn t like the romance at all I wish the plot had been focused on the actual blackmailing I wanted a lot of that.

    10. Things to look out for in Tangled Webs by Lee BrossA VERY confused MC Meet Arista aka Lady A aka Ana aka someone help me because so many aka s aren t even legal Arista is a thief or rather, the aid of a thief Her boss, Bones Villain 1 , collects secrets of the aristocrats in London s society and he ll keep them safe, for a price, of course He is cruel, abusive, and basically owns Arista He keeps her starved and filthy, only allowing her to dress up family for the sake of masquerade parties, when [...]

    11. See this mini review at YA Midnight ReadsThis novel had quite the premise, it appealed to me on every level I mean come on, historical fiction coupled up with a complex blackmail scenario Sign me up Unfortunately with Tangled Webs I found myself simply unable to finish it I ended up marking it as DNF at 30 percent just because I was so, so, so detached and bored out of my mind The biggest issue for me was definitely the writing in this one It just read as so bland and typical, and because of tha [...]

    12. This and other reviews on my blogMy Friends Are FictionI tend to love historical YA so when I read the summary to Tangled Webs I was captivated and knew I d want to read it I had hopes that this book would be romantic, atmospheric and addictive Sadly, I didn t end up enjoying it nearly as well as I hoped.Though this book took place in 1725 London the setting never felt all that historical to me I didn t feel swept back in time nor did I get a clear visual of this world that Lady A Arista lived i [...]

    13. This book was nothing like i expected I don t really know what i expected, it just wasn t this.This was one of those books that i read just to continue doing something, to satisfy my curiosity And it wasn t enough for me it didn t really drag me in, like other books have done I almost had to force myself to continue reading I didn t really care what happened to Lady A Arista Ana And that s not how i should feel.All in all, the book wasn t bad by any means It didn t have any bad elements , per se [...]

    14. More reviews on my blog, Exploring Pages Lady A His voice sounded hoarse, like he d only just started using it She inclined her head slightly He took a long swallow from the glass of brandy clutched in his fat fingers Just like that, she had the power again.Thank you Disney Hyperion for providing me with an advanced reading copy for review.Actual rating 3.5 starsGoing into a book with little knowledge about it, nor having many expectations, payed off this time Tangled Webs is, despite the issues [...]

    15. REVIEWI just finished Tangled Webs andwow I am trying to put my thoughts together, but all that comes to mind is AEUHRGSR.EIGHR EGHSOG As of the time that I m writing this March 16th , Tangled Webs is by far, the best book that I have read in 2015 Yes, it was that amazing I am amazed by Lee Bross writing prowess If this review seems to be a bit all over the place, that s because I m trying to put my gushing thoughts into words.Imagine living your life as an orphan, growing up with no friendly fa [...]

    16. An ARC of this title was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review My thoughts are my own This review can also be found at The Starry Eyed Revue.This wasa bit of a disappointment It started off well and then went downhill around the halfway pointybe even before I should have DNF d it I don t know why I didn t, to be honest The premise intrigued me from the moment I read the summary, and I guess I just wanted to see it through.I m a sucker for a girl who gets by dressed as a boy [...]

    17. Alright now I can get my thoughts in order after reading this book I honestly didn t dislike the overall book, but there was a lot of elements in it that added up to an overall low rating The biggest factor, I have to admit, is the characters Unfortunately, I couldn t connect to or sympathize with any of them Not Arista, the main character, or her childhood friend crush Nic, or her instalusty masked highwayman Grae, or the people who made the tangled webs in the story I WANTED to like Arista, bu [...]

    18. This could be a case of bad timing, of a it s not you, it s me kinda thing I usually adore historical fiction but in this case I was not as captivated as I usually am.There wasn t anything wrong with the world building or any historical innacuracies, but there was a certain vagueness to everything as far as the background and the setting It was London, but other than some references to the foggy weather here and there my impression is that we don t know nothing of the atmosphere, nothing much b [...]

    20. 3.5 stars Tangled Webs by Lee Bross was a book I had my eye on and I knew that as soon as I had this book in my hands I would have to read it I mean, it is historical which I love , has a bit of swoon which I love , and the underlying story has characters I find interesting which I also love Bross starts this story by creating a world where the rich pay to keep their secrets hidden away unless someone pays for that secret Mixed up in that world is Lady A and she is the face of an operation that [...]

    21. TANGLED WEBS is the first historical novel by Lee Bross, who has also written YA under the name Lanie Bross and NA as L.E Bross It is a rather flawed novel, particularly in the way that characters disappear until they re suddenly needed for the plot At the same time, I found it hard to put TANGLED WEBS down.Arista works for Bones, who bought her from the orphanage when she was a child She acts as Lady A, the face of his blackmail operation Everyone knows her mask, because she s the only one who [...]

    22. 2.5 starsI had really high hopes for this book.cially because the cover was so pretty But a pretty cover hid just a bland story The MC Arista aka Lady A aka Ana I think she has multiple personality disorder is an orphan who is raised by a horrible man to be a thief and a spy But that s the probleme doesn t act like a thief or a spy at all In the first chapter Arista, while on a mission, meets and falls for Grae BAM Instalove To the point where she is distracted from her mission Then for the majo [...]

    23. Started off so strong but ended up being predictable at times Also be billed as a historical fiction novel but it s very light on historical accuracy and feel.

    24. You can see this full review and at Book Briefs bookbriefs Tangled Webs is one of those books where it was love at first glance As soon as I saw the cover I fell in love side note this is a beautifully designed book Each of the chapters even has black and white lace designs on the pages A wonderfully intricate touch, I thought I knew I wanted to read it And then as soon as I saw the summary, and found out that Tangled Webs was about a blackmailer in historical London, called Lady A who collecte [...]

    25. Review originally posted on my blog Across the WordsI really enjoy curling up with historical fiction books so when I heard about Tangled Webs, I was immensely intrigued by the storyline I had pretty high expectations for this book given that a couple of my close blogger friends enjoyed it Unfortunately, I didn t enjoy this book as much as I hoped and I found it lacking on both the historical fiction and romance fronts.Tangled Webs is set in 1725 London and follows that story of sixteen year old [...]

    26. Its a good historical fiction novel for young readers This book got an intriguing plot and I liked it a lot, but I don t think I can say the same about its characters.Even with all the flaws it was surprisingly a good book.I think people who love historical fiction will definitely like this book.The character named Arista AKA Lady A is a 16 year old tough girl who has gone through a hard life in her childhood She was brought up as a thief from childhood, and now she s a notorious blackmailer wor [...]

    27. Tangled Webs is a book that promises a glimpse into the seamy underbelly of Elizabethan England, following the life of a teenager who grew up in the household of a thief who used orphans to profit by committing crimes The premise is a good one and the world is built well, but unfortunately, it did not live up to the promise of what could have been.As far as the plot goes, it is a very interesting idea Had it been told in a different style, with some character development tweaked, I believe it co [...]
