Hey Everyone,

How are you?

Rituals by Kelley Armstrong

Olivia Jones must make a choice.

Caught between two rival supernatural forces, Liv has been given a brief period in which to make her decision. Now that time has run out.

Whichever side she chooses, someone she loves will pay. Her lover, Ricky, Gabriel Walsh - the man she knows she cannot, must not love. Her parents - already trapped in prison. 

And now there is a new, terrifying power rising - one that doesn't distinguish between good and evil intentions. It feeds on chaos and destroys without mercy. Unless Liv acts fast, no one will survive.

In this gripping thriller, international bestselling author Kelley Armstrong brings the Cainsille series to a powerful, richly rewarding climax

Book Review | Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

I FINALLY MANAGED TO GET A COUPLE DAYS OFF YAY!! My manager has been quite generous and has given me the weekend off which is great, I have been enjoying my days off so far, caught up a bit of some tv shows and I have binge-watched The Defenders on Friday and OMG!!! I loved it.

So I have some backed up blog post that I have been meaning to get to, I have another book review after this so hopefully, I can get it done soon.


Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong

Book Review | Lost Souls by Kelley Armstrong AND The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

Yes, as you can see I am doing another MERGE  book review or MERGE REVIEW as I like to call it. I enjoyed doing the first merge with The Inn at Eagle Point by Sheryl Woods and The Forever House by Veronica Henry and I thought why not do another one. Psst, it is because I've barely had enough days off work to focus my thoughts on one book and once I do get a day off, it's really difficult to think about a book you've recently finished even though it was like a week ago.


Lost Souls by Kelley Armstrong

The disappearing hitchhiker is one of the hoariest urban legends, and no one knows that better than Gabriel Walsh, a lawyer who grew up on folklore and myth. When Patrick—author of books on the supernatural—brings him the case of a hitchhiking woman in white who vanished on a country road after accepting a ride from a businessman, Gabriel knows the Cainsville elder is just trying to wheedle into his good graces. But Gabriel is a man in need of a mystery…

Book Review | Cure For The Common Break Up by Beth Kendrick

Hey Everyone,

How are you?


Welcome to Black Dog Bay, a tiny seaside town in Delaware known as "the best place in America to bounce back from your breakup." Home to Better Off Bed-and-Breakfast, the Eat Your Heart Out bakery, and the Whinery bar, Black Dog Bay offers a haven for the suddenly single.

Flight attendant Summer Benson lives by two rules: Don’t stay with the same man for too long and never stay in one place. She’s about to break rule number one by considering accepting her boyfriend’s proposal—then disaster strikes and her world is shattered in an instant.

Summer heads to Black Dog Bay, where the locals welcome her. Even Hattie Huntington, the town’s oldest, richest, and meanest resident, likes her enough to give her a job. Then there’s Dutch Jansen, the rugged, stoic mayor, who’s the opposite of her type. She probably shouldn't be kissing him. She definitely shouldn't be falling in love.

After a lifetime of globe-trotting, Summer has finally found a home. But …

Book Review | The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford

Nancy Mitford's The Pursuit of Loveis one of the funniest, sharpest novels about love and growing up ever written.

'Obsessed with sex!' said Jassy, 'there's nobody so obsessed as you, Linda. Why if I so much as look at a picture you say I'm a pygmalionist.' 

In the end we got more information out of a book called Ducks and Duck Breeding. 
'Ducks can only copulate,' said Linda, after studying this for a while, 'in running water. Good luck to them.'

Oh, the tedium of waiting to grow up! Longing for love, obsessed with weddings and sex, Linda and her sisters and cousin Fanny are on the lookout for the perfect lover.

But finding Mr Right is much harder than any of the sisters had thought. Linda must suffer marriage first to a stuffy Tory MP and then to a handsome and humourless communist, before finding real love in war-torn Paris. . .

Book Haul No. 25

Hey Everyone,

How are you?

Yet, another book haul. But it was also my birthday in July so I was expecting to be purchasing a lot of books. But recently I have come to the realisation that I have too many books that are unread and decided to stop buying books. I know that I have made a declaration countless of times to stop buying books but lately, I haven't been going into a bookshop and coming home with stacks of books. I think it is mainly because I have no space for my books in my room because it is the smallest room in the house and it's very difficult to find space for my other books and also any miscellaneous things in my room.

I have a total of 17 books to share with you so let's get to it.
