well 2017 has ended and 2018 is here! So HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Sorry for neglecting you all I’ve been busy with the day job (even worked Christmas day) I’ve also been reading lots, including some proof reads!
Coming out this month is the Dragon school series by Sarah K L Wilson, all are available to pre-order on Amazon and are a great read.
1 – First Flight
2 – Initiate
3 – The Dark Prince
4 – Ruby Isles
I had the honour of proof reading books 1, 2 and 3. You’ll all love them!
In 2017 I read 115 books, how many did you read?
I’ve set my target as 50 for this year as I won’t have as much free time to read due to my job.
Do you have goodreads? Feel free to add me and also pop the link to yours in the comments so I can follow you.
What are you all reading right now? I’m currently deciding what I want to read.
Sorry for being AWOL for awhile, I’ve been busy looking after my mum after a spinal operation.
I’ve read a few books these last few weeks (87 so far this year!)
One series I read was The Tainted Accords by Kelly St Clare.
I read the first one via The Marked By Fate box set which is due out on Tuesday! (24th Oct 2017)
I was instantly hooked at the idea of two planets that are side by side, one incredibly hot and one freezing cold. Each can only exist with the presence of the other.
The first book is Fantasy of Frost.
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed in and read all 4 within 3 days and then read the novella “Sin” after.
Full of secrets, action, destiny and betrayal and love.
I highly recommend you read this. The characters and storyline are amazing. get yours here:
So go have a look, you won’t regret it.
So I got given the chance to read Steal the sun by Stephanie Kelley.
I’d never heard of her before so was eager to give her a go, and wow! I am so glad I did!
The cover isn’t one that would usually draw me in, but they do say don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
Kodiak Sesi is a hunter… not the type that hunts game… She and her brothers hunt “others” these are creatures such as vampires and werewolves but also include shifters such as selkies/mermen etc. (Have you seen Grimm? Think of wesen and how they can woge).
Intrigued? So was I!
Steal the sun follows Koda and her brothers as they hunt others and try to find out who’s been committing a series of murders around their Alaskan home.
I absolutely love this book and fell in love with it within the first sentence. Kodiak and Rhen are such powerful characters and the mystery of their back story kept me up and reading all throw the night!
I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and fantasy as well as fans of Grimm and probably Supernatural (sorry never seen and episode!)
Definitely a 5 star read!
In the words of Oliver “Please sir can I have some more?”
If you only do one thing tonight, get your hands on a copy and read!
I’ve managed to be very lucky and get my hands on a copy of Marked By Fate Origins.
This is full of short stories about the characters that are in the books in the Marked By Fate box set that is available to pre-order on ibooks and Amazon now! The Marked By Fate Box set is due to be released on the 24th of October.
Pre-order yours here:
The Origins box set is due to be released on the 7th of July you can pre-order yours here:
Have you read Teeth of the Gods by Sarah K L Wilson, or Shift of Shadow and Soul by Hilary Thompson? well they are in the main box set and have short stories in the Origins box set, and I call tell you they are AMAZING!
There are so many brilliant books in these sets! Some I’ve read, some I haven’t but the ones I haven’t will be reviewed here for you all!
One of my favourites in the Origins box set is Prince of Hawks by Sarah K L Wilson.
I absolutely loved learning more about Rusk from the unweaving trilogy which is a amazing trilogy (yes I know that the 3rd book isn’t due to be released until the 13th of July but I just finished reading it and it blew my socks off! )
I’ll leave you all to rush off madly and pre-order all of those!
Ohh almost forgot there’s also a colouring book in the series and it’s awesome! here’s a pic from it, but be quick as when I checked Amazon UK earlier there were only 2 copies in stock!
Have a fab weekend!
So a week or so ago I started this saga, in total there are 9 books, I’ve currently read up to book 3 (Chosen) and to be honest I’m not sure if I should continue.
I love the plot of the books – vampires, werewolves, witches, a curse! But and there is a big but… It is written quite childlike. All the kisses in it are “hot” and there’s just no variation on it. I do want to see where it goes and how the series will end but I’m not sure if I can read 6 more books of “hot” kisses.
In all honesty as much as I like the series I think it could be better written if done by a different author.
You can get book 1 – Crush on Amazon so if you fancy reading it give it a go!
Here are the links:
You may see another post from me about the remaining books, you may not. I’ve not made my mind up yet and my to be read pile is growing!
For this series so far I’d give the plot 5 stars but the writing 2-3 stars. But don’t write it off, you may love it!
So yesterday I delved back into the world of Nile Greysik as I joined her adventures in book 2 of the Tides series.
War and wind is just as well written as Ash and air, it’s just as gripping and has left me wanting more, (so it’s a good thing a 3rd book is in the works! Yay).
Every time I read Alex’s work I become absorb by her style of writing, I feel as though I am Nile out on the open sea, I feel what she feels to the point at times that my emotions betray me.
For anyone that has yet to read book one I urge you to, you will not regret it. And once you have let Nile’s world absorb you into it once more by reading War and Wind.
Last night I finished Queen of Destruction by Gwynn White and Erin St Pierre.
Queen of Destruction is book 2 in the Queen of Extinction Trilogy.
I absolutely loved it!
In book 2 we follow our lovely Aurora and her entourage as they carry on their story of magic, love and fighting for what they believe in (I hate spoilers so if you’ve not read book 1, hopefully this doesn’t give anything away to you!)
A fab follow up to Queen of Extinction and I’m already itching to get my hands onto book 3. I need to know what happens!

Also just how pretty are the covers!
Have a fab day!
