The Bad Girl,(Westbrook Three Book 2) by A.D.McCammon

This book had me invested from the very first page. 

I liked these characters in When the Saint Falls but fell in love with them in The Bad Girl.

Arwen and Aidan are raw and tangible, and their chemistry is on fire.

A.D.McCammon was able to convey the struggles people face when it comes to their sexuality and the preconceived notions of who we should allow ourselves to love. 

This way surpassed my expectations, with a powerful message which shone through and resonated with me.

I cannot wait to read Cole’s book. It will be the final piece of the puzzle, and the wait will be worth it.

One-click this book now!

When the Saint Falls (Westbrook Three, #1) by A.D.McCammon

I was dubious about reading a bully romance if I’m honest. However, I’ve read everything else by A.D.McCammon and devoured her words. With this trope being all the rage, I wanted to read it for myself. And I was not disappointed.

It wasn’t hardcore bullying, not even close. But I don’t want to spoil it for you, all I will say is don’t knock it until you’ve read it for yourself. I loved these characters and can’t wait to read the next two books in the series. Bravo A.D.McCammon bring on The Bad Girl, releasing July 16th!

Exposed #2, Ruin #3, Pride #4, Kingdoms of Sin, by Willow Aster.

Having read Downfall the first in the Kingdoms of Sin series, I was always going to read the rest. However, with moving house right on top of Christmas, then a pandemic and everything eel in between I wasn’t able to straight away. So, when I had a major flare-up and was well enough, I had a little read-a-thon. And so glad I did. Willow Aster is a beautiful author, and her world-building and character arcs throughout kept me wanting me. She ended the series wonderfully and done it justice. If you’re looking for an escape, check out the Kingdom of Sin series.

Woman On Fire, Victoria Ellis.

Powerful, passionate, and raw. Victoria’s words cut me deep. It was impossible not see a glimpse of the girl I used to be, while reading this poetry collection. 

It will resonate with you, as much as it did with me. 

“People can love you without being good at it.”

So much truth. And I think Victoria may just be one of my new favourites. 

Go on now, one click Woman on Fire.

Pawn (Fae Games Book 1) by Karen Lynch.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Relentless Series by Karen Lynch, so when I heard about Pawn. I made sure to pre-order and the day it hit my kindle, I read it within a couple of hours. I then re-read a few from her previous series over the course of a week.

If you like books about Fae and magic, where different worlds collide, then check it out.

Mockingjay: The Hunger Games, Book 3 by Suzanne Collins.

Audio Download, Narrated by Tatiana Maslany.

I’m sad to let these characters go. I’ve enjoyed getting swept up in Tatiana’s narrative, she held my attention and done all three books justice.

Who else will be reading The Ballard Of Songbirds And Snakes, later this month? I pre-ordered it back in January, and am quite looking forward to a prequel.

What will I be reading next? With all the hype over Midnight Sun releasing in August, I feel a Twilight re-read coming on. And because of the generosity of one of my wonderful Author friends gifted me a pre-order. I’ll be able to buddy read it with her once it’s released.

Special Edition (Audio Download) Narrated by Tatiana Maslany.

Catching Fire is my favourite of the trilogy and I’m pleased to say the audible version done the book justice too. I enjoy them all don’t get me wrong, but I look forward to reading or watching this one the most.

I’ve just started listening to Mockingjay and will be a little sad once I’m finished. Not sure what to listen to next, any suggestions? I have my audible credit available!

The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

Special Edition ( Audio Download) Narrated by Tatiana Maslany.

If like me you’re struggling during COVID-19, with lockdown and social distancing. You’re likely having difficultly sleeping. I’ve always suffered with my sleep but now more so. However, I’ve found listening to Audible on a timer when I go to bed, is a good distraction. I opted for books I’ve already read, and glad I did. Tell me, what are you reading or doing to take extra care at the moment?

The Children’s Block, by Otto B Kraus.

Based on a true story by Otto B Kraus, an Auschwitz survivor. A harrowing account of life while waiting for death in the children’s block. If you’ve read The Tattooist of Auschwitz or The Librarian of Auschwitz then I highly recommend you read this book. A tragic and poignant tale of survival against all odds.

The Wives, by Tarryn Fisher.

The Wives, is hands down one of the best Psychological thrillers I’ve read. If you loved Verity by Colleen Hoover, The Ghostwriter By Alessandra Torre or Dark, Dead Stars by Cassie Sharp. One click The Wives Now. I found myself questioning everything about this book until the very last page. Enthralling and addictive you will not want to put it down. A must read.

Blurb

You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, you see your husband only one day a week. Thursday. But you don’t care, you love him that much. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself…

And then, one day it all changes.

Review – Dark, Dead Stars by Cassie Sharp .

Dark, Dead Stars, was more than a 5* Read for me, and easily a solid favourite.

There are twists and turns you won’t see coming. Cassie weaves a web so well constructed you’ll find yourself questioning everything you think know.

Review – The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy.

I loved this book, and so will you. Such a powerful message throughout and wonderfully thought provoking. It tugs at your heart strings. I read this for the first time with my 11 year old niece, and she fell in love with it instantly, as did I. The next morning I took her out and purchased her a copy too. This can be read by anyone and I will be surprised if you don’t fall in love with it too.

Four Day Prince Charming (The Robinson Sisters #1), by K Leigh.

Four Day Prince Charming: An Angsty Age Gap Novella (The Robinson Sisters Book 1)

Walking the red carpet alone is a bore.

While there’s no shortage of willing women, they only want me because I’m Action Jackson—everyone’s favorite superhero. I’ve become accustomed to the single life. An older woman isn’t who I pictured as my leading lady, yet there’s something special about Lexi Robinson.

The Golden One by R.H. Nix

A beautiful and refreshing young adult fantasy read. It’s perfectly targeted to a younger audience, but regardless of age you’ll enjoy it, as I did.

The main characters although young, are a lovely duo. Zava is tenacious, and spirited. Nate is charming and witty, they complement each other wonderfully. It was lovely to see them come into their own, as they researched why fate and the darkness which loomed had brought them together.

What a wonderful debut novel, I can’t wait to see what R.H. Nix has in store for us next.

Roping Your Heart by Fabiola Francisco – Review

 

Synopsis;

Lia Montgomery has been my best friend since we were kids, but when she moves back to our hometown, we can’t ignore the chemistry between us. And I’ve come up with a plan to make her mine.

First on the list? Make her my roommate. Read More

Downfall (Kingdoms of Sin Book 1) by Willow Aster

 

This is unlike other books written by Willow and yet I loved it. She has a way of creating characters and world-building, which drew me in. I didn’t want to put it down and read it in one sitting. Perfectly good use of my Saturday.

Luka, love to hate is a strong definition but it’s true. He is a real piece of work. There were times I wanted to strangle the boy. His character is such a contradiction, hot one moment then cold the next. Read More

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey by Rick Yancey, Brandon Espinoza (Narrator), Phoebe Strole (Narrator) – Review

Synopsis;

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. Read More

Hate the Game by Holly Hall – Review

 

Hate the Game, had me smiling from the get-go. Few romcoms have the power to keep me engaged, make me smile as well as laugh out loud.
But Holly most definitely hit the ground running with this fun, light and heartfelt read.
I loved Ava and Theo’s chemistry. Holly always has a way of making her characters real and relatable.

I was pleasantly surprised by Our Dust Has a Pulse. It kept me intrigued and invested, as the relationship between Katherine and Decker developed.

Being attracted to each other from afar, and then ending up on an unexpected road trip together, a wonderful slow burn and angst-filled. Read More

Promise You by Fabiola Francisco – Review

Emotional and angsty this friends-to-lovers romance is both heartwarming and sexy.

You will love Dex as he works hard to woo Reese. Their chemistry undeniable.

“One night changes everything, risking the only thing I’d want more than a career in country music–her.”

Fabiola shows us the softer side of her writing with Promise You.

Whether you’re new to Fabiola or a long time reader, I can assure you, Promise You is a swoon-worthy must read.

The Rules of Burken by Traci Finlay – Review

I know I’ve hit the jackpot when a book captivates me from the very first page. A twisted game of, Hide and Seek, if ever there was one.

“I see you, Little Spider…”

Traci Finlay managed to pull me into the story so well it was almost as though I was watching it play out on the big screen.
Read More

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – Review

This book hit me hard. I’ve had it on my bookshelf for ages, and it’s easy to see why this is so well loved.

Fine what a simple word for such a non simplistic answer as to your well being. Read More

True Love Story by Willow Aster – Review

I’m so glad I bumped True Love Story to the top of my reading list. I’ve had it on my Kindle for so long.

It’s such a beautifully heartbreaking read, and we already know from the start something monumental happens between Ian and Sparrow, which gradually unfolds during the past chapters.

But honestly, I wasn’t quite prepared to what extent until the plot twist. Read More

Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman – Review

Neverwhere, was a re-read for me and a must read.

There is no better way than to read about London Below, The World of Neverwhere, than while commuting on the London Underground.

Interestingly bizarre but in the best possible way. Read More

5,331 Miles by Willow Aster – Review

I didn’t know what to expect when I began reading 5,331 Miles, but I was was not disappointed.

It’s a second chance romance but not in the typical cliche sense. I loved the style in which it was written, a single point of view from young to new adult. Read More

Cuckoo by Sophie Draper – Review

My expectations with any thriller are always high.

Cuckoo was good, a light thriller with a slightly dark edge. Although it didn’t blow me away, I enjoyed it none the less.

The fairy tale twist was brilliant; a story within a story was a brain twister. I liked that a lot.
Read More

Desert Rose by K.Moore – Review

Desert Rose held me captive from the very first page. It’s hard to believe this is indeed a debut novel. K.Moore sets the scene perfectly as we see the devastation unfold from the abduction of Jennifer’s daughter and the aftermath that follows.

Being in a foreign country and at the mercy of a culture where women don’t hold the same rights, is just the beginning of her ongoing struggle to get answers regarding the abduction. A husband she thought she knew, now becoming a stranger and her son being forced to grow up sooner than he should have to.

With This Lie by Kat Savage – Review

I love the way Kat writes her characters to life. Both Dani and Lucas resonated with me early on, and I found myself invested. Their chemistry kept me intrigued and turning those pages.

I’ve had the pleasure of reading some of Kats poetry which is powerful in its own right. And her first novel For Now, which I enjoyed but With this Lie is easily my favourite of the two.
Read More

Somewhere Between Us by Holly Hall – Review

Somewhere Between Us, did not disappoint, after a year of waiting Holly manages to deliver this little beauty with the softer side of her writing style.

Cameron and Jeremy are an unlikely pair from the beginning. This story evolves with just the right amount of angst and builds up, in all the right places. It flits between past and present.

Sometimes you can love someone, but it isn’t the right time. Honestly, I think this was the case with these two. Both Jeremy and Cam needed the ten years of separation to learn and to grow, to have a greater understanding of themselves and love.
Read More

Whiskey & Wine by H.Dillon Hunt – Review

It’s a given, any book which references Supernatural was always going to be a win in my book.

Whiskey and Wine is a sweet and heartfelt story. I loved the dynamics between Ellie and Dean, he pulls while she pushes. And if I’m honest, I’ve been left with a little bit of a book crush where Dean is concerned. 
Read More

The Reason by Stacy M. Wray – Review

The Reason was such a lovely read. And for anyone out there uncertain if this will be your cup of tea. I think like myself; you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Lily and her husband have to come to terms that their marriage is over.

Wanting to make their separation as amicable as possible for them and their children, but due to unexpected circumstances, they end up having to put this on hold. Although they are still living together, they are living separate lives except for co-parenting.

When Lily first meets Casey over the counter where he works, at first it’s a smile here or an acknowledgment there.
Read More

All My Truths & One Lie by Fabiola Francisco – Review

All My Truths & One Lie isn’t like any of the other books I’ve previously read by Fabiola. This one is more weighted with inner struggles and emotional breakthroughs. And in my opinion, it’s her strongest one to date. Read More

I Hope This Makes You Uncomfortable: Poems by Kat Savage – Review

The Consequence of Falling by Claire Contreas – Review

This is one of those books which keeps you invested until the very end. It spans over a decade with brief encounters between Nathaniel and Presley.

Hellion (Relentless Book 7) by Karen Lynch – Review

Ever since I began this series I’ve been eagerly awaiting Jordan’s story, and Karen didn’t disappoint.

Jordan is every bit as tenacious as she ever was. The young mohiri warrior is even more fearless, she takes risks and is passionate in her pursuits. Until Hamid comes back into the picture. Read More

Verity by Colleen Hoover – Review

I was absolutely enthralled by Verity. And I didn’t even need to read the synopsis. I mean why would I? Not when it’s by an author I already love. But also not her usual genre. I knew I was going to one click. And I’m so bloody glad I did. Read More

Selfish for Love by A.D.McCammon – Review

No Time To Blink by Dina Silver – Review

I had absolutely no idea what to expect when I purchased this book. I didn’t read the synopsis as it was recommended by some book friends. So I snapped it up for a bargain price and it has been waiting for me on my bookshelf ever since. I finally decided to pick it up last week and glad I did. My reading has been fractured lately, and this was a pleasant surprise. Read More

The Keeper of Lost Things – Review

I liked this book but sadly I didn’t love it. I did, however, love the concept. It was just a shame certain parts pulled me out of the story at times. I can’t quite put my finger on it, maybe the author was trying too hard to say too much. I think sometimes less is more. Read More

Tiny Drops – Review

Tiny Drops is one of those rare books, which hold so many poignant messages. Living with an invisible illness of any kind comes with a stigma attached and numerous misconceptions.

It’s refreshing and liberating to see the invisible made visible. Both enlightening and captivating, this is a story of first and foremost self-discovery.

Told in three parts, over the course of fifteen years, from the time of Brice’s diagnosis, of falling in love, loss and acceptance. Read More

Mud Vein

Mud Vein is a go-to re-read for me. Each time it hits me harder than the last. Everything about this story pulls me in, slowly at first and then all-consuming. Read More

Every Day

Tempting Levi (Cade Brothers Book 1)

Sometimes you just need an easy read that’s light on your soul. 

This is a good book for daytime reading and relaxing with a cup of tea.

I’ve read the blue series and this is different venturing into new territory away from the Casino and into the driving range. 

This series follows the Cade brothers who are either high strung, moody, cocky or unassuming, but one thing is for sure under all that bravado all it will take is for the love of a good woman to turn the bad boys good. Read More

Hidden in a Small Town

Hidden in a Small Town isn’t like most suspense books I’ve read in the past, but that being said it kept me intrigued until the end a worthwhile read.

Jackal (End of Men Book 2) – Review

Well tickle me pink, if you have any apprehension about not enjoying Jackal as much as Folsom, I can assure you both books are equally brilliant in their own right. They are so relatable to the individual end men you can’t help but love Jackal as much, or if not more than Folsom. There I said it! Read More

The Great Gatsby

This was my first attempt of listening to an audio book, but to be honest I’m still not sure if audio is really for me, it kind of feels like cheating in a way, but none the less I am still a fan of this classic.

Folsom (The End of Men Book 1) – Review

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

Both lovely and beautiful in all the right places.
I sometimes question reading YA, like maybe I’m too old?

Pfffttt age is just a number anyway right?
