If you are someone looking for a book to read this quick and short but has a lot going on than The History Major: A Novella is for you. This is a great book to read during a read-a-thon but also great if you enjoy a great mystery. The History Major: A Novella is written by author Michael Phillip Cash. The book is about a college girl named Amanda who wakes with the worst hangover in her life. She also starting hearing and seeing voices and find out she had a roommate that she ever knew about. This leads to a weird day with strange things happening. She is being watched by an unknown person and is forced to take a class she didn’t sign up for. During her history class and meets a boy who has secrets. Amanda finds out that the class was not a mistake and is in for a nightmare. She soon learns that in order to find the mystery behind her day is to look towards the past in history to solve the mystery in her life as well. This is a key that must be found before someone or something finds her.


I felt like the book was really interesting. The book was fast paced and held my attention throughout. I also like how the mystery tied into the hidden secrets of Amanda(main character)’s past. In order to save herself, she must face her regrets, fears and also look within herself. I also like how they also combine all this and add historic events throughout the book. I don’t really read books that actually this short and usually read books that have more than 200 pages but every once in a while find one this short. I guess great for anyone who wants a book to read in one setting. There were some parts that could’ve been improved like I would like to see more Amanda’s world be expanded a big more. I still don’t feel a great connection with the character nor do I think the author spent enough time developing the rest of the characters as well.The book as well doesn’t really explain this mysterious guy that keeps popping up and why he why was connected to the character. Well that is it for today’s review stay tuned in for more and until next time keep on reading.
