Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are evacuated to a country house in Ireland during the blitz. Despite this thrilling premise, not much happens for three fourths of the book, when it abruptly tries to become a thriller. The plot focuses primarily on the flat and dull characters in charge of guarding the princesses. I received an advanced readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. #arc #Netgalley #anglophilesoflitsy

What I Loved: Killian was such a bad-A$$ and I loved it!
How I Felt: This book was gritty and the descriptions were spot on.
Read or Not Read: Perfect for action/thriller lovers and has very little down-time.
Killian Delaney just got out of prison. The man she went to prison for maiming has kidnapped her niece. She is immediately set on a course to get her back and no one will stand in her way. #netgalley #redhookbooks

Not gonna lie, this one was kinda disappointing. A relatively unremarkable and quite forgettable mystery, where disgraced journalist Leah Stevens moves to Pennsylvania, to start a new life as a teacher at the local high school and soon becomes involved in the disappearance of her roommate Emily. ⭐️⭐️ #netgalley #goodreads #seasonalreadingchallenge

Not for the faint hearted, this book about Edward IV & his brothers is a weighty tome at over 600 pages packed with historical detail. The death of a Burgundian horse was difficult to read about & it made me dislike Anthony Woodville.

An informative read about this period of English history. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Penguin Books UK / Allen Lane, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

Imagine if Margaret Atwood took 2,200 war refugees from the ICE camps at the U.S. border and flew them to Canada, hand-picking them for their ideas and gifts. She would change Canada forever, right? That‘s what the poet Pablo Neruda did to Chile in 1939, bringing Spanish refugees from France, and that‘s what Isabel Allende‘s next book is about. As historical fiction, it feels like Dr. Zhivago. #arc #netgalley #immigration #epic

Loved the writing and the style of this novel. A series of short pieces telling the stories of black women in the UK. This book makes you feel surrounded and caught in the wind of all of these stories. #netgalley

From psychological/suspense thriller, mystery, science fiction, to climate fiction, dystopian and even a touch of horror, this book ticks off all those boxes. Throw into the mix a well developed, character driven plot, refreshing setting and intelligent, smooth as butter writing and you have a gripping, intoxicating, unputdownable and unpredictable read that I absolutely devoured. Brilliant!!! A favourite of 2019! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #netgalley

A Double Life | Karolina Pavlova

I enjoyed this 19th-century comedy of manners about the marriage market. Witty & bleakly humorous with an intriguing style. The prose & poetry sections depict young Cecily's "double life"—her corseted/cosseted real-life, interspersed with the verse that she writes alone at night when she feels free. The comparison to Jane Austen is inevitable, but the anger Pavlova feels about the condition of women is more readily felt in the writing. #netgalley

batsy Translated from Russian by Barbara Heldt, this also has the distinction of being a *short* Russian novel 😆 2d
