My Soul to Keep | Kennedy Ryan
post image
Pickpick

Rhyson is a piano playing superstar with a complicated family. Kai is an aspiring singer with the smallest family in the world. Both have shoulders heavy with trauma and this is how their romance begins.

Ryan is fantastic at fleshing out her characters, making them both loveable and irritating at the same time. The romance steams off the pages.

At time of posting this trilogy is available on Kindle Unlimited.

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

Pickpick

This is such a quick read, I read the entire thing in five hours. It's very straight to the point in terms of plot, there's no fluff or fancy sentences, every word is there for a reason. Same for the characters, you only know what you need to know about them, there's no added filler to flesh them out.

This whole book is designed for you as the reader to figure out who is the murderer. To me it felt very much like the boardgame cluedo.

4 stars

Set in a coffee shop in Kabul this fictional story is set around five women, two afghan nationals and three westerners. While I didn't learn anything new about Afghanistan or feel any cultural vibes from the pages it was an OK read, cute, hopeful.

Three stars. An easy coffee shop read, the bright breeziness of this story probably doesn't reflect Afghanistan in anyway today but a nice fictional story to pass an afternoon.

I'm a massive SK fan so it's a massive shame that I haven't really enjoyed this. There we books along the way I really enjoyed but the last couple haven't left me particularly enthralled. I haven't hated the journey, but I'm not skipped along either.

However I really loved this ending. Weirdly the ending makes me want to go back to the first book and start all over again, I can see why Dark Tower fans get into this loop!

DrexEdit I'm on book four. I really hope to finish this series next year! 4d
Michellesibs @DrexEdit Enjoy! It took me almost a year to plough through but now I'm done I can finally watch the movie! 3d

This is book one in a thirteen (?) book series so I'm looking forward to see how Bond's character grows.

This book hasn't aged well but I think if you go into it knowing that you may enjoy it more and I do appreciate what this author did for the spy genre overall.

Three stars.

Book six in The Dark Tower series and I think Stephen King is the only author that can get away with writing himself into the story! I couldn't believe my eyes!
I'm not loving this series, its just OK for me. I love how certain things tie back to other books, Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Stand are the obvious ones. I really like some of the characters but this whole multi personality thing leaves me confused and I just can't grasp what's going on.

The sixth and final book in the Halloween themed Booze and Boos collection which at time of posting is available on Kindle Unlimited.

I think this is my favourite of the novellas, it's just super cute from beginning to end and has a really nice vibe to it. A good note to end the collection on.

All in all this collection is well managed by all the authors involved in the project, I really liked their collaboration.

Book five in the Boos & Booze Collection which at time of posting is available on Kindle Unlimited.

Summer is recently divorced and looking forward to the Sapphire Fall Festival in her new neighbourhood but are her new neighbours all that they seem?

This is a decent read but I felt like the story was too big for a 39 page novella. I really like what the author was doing but it needed to be longer to have the impact.

Three stars.

This is a non fiction true crime story on the shooting of Danny Hansford by his employer and the subsequent four trials. I hadnt heard of this before so I went in without any prior knowledge at all.
The cast of characters are electric. A Drag Queen, a Witch, an Antiques Dealer, a piano playing lawyer. There's an abundance of alcohol, gossip and ambition in a town with an unwillingness to change.
A slow start but in the end a great read!

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Idk why, but I remember a lot of the books my mom red when I was a kid. (She always set an example and read in front of us when she could.) This is one of the book covers I remember seeing, but I had no idea what it was about. 1mo
Cortg I read this book and loved it. Then, I listened to it. Got my sister and her boyfriend intrigued on vacation and they read it. My sister's boyfriend, being from Savannah, gave me his “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil“ tour on a visit. I also found out a friend of mine from high school works for the same law firm from the book.
For fun, check out the tagged book. Interesting story.

Born a Crime | Trevor Noah
post image
Pickpick

Not many books make me laugh out loud but this one did many times. Trevor, as we know is a fantastic comedian and that really shines though in these pages.
This book also made me cry. There's a lot of trauma here in terms of race, feeling isolated, the cycle of poverty and domestic abuse.
There's also a lot to learn here with regards to the history of South Africa. The before, the after, the now.
I found every page interesting & informative.

Cecil is never good enough for her father, she is controlled and binded to a competition with an unknown opponent. The rules are not communicated, the goal is unclear. The competition will last a lifetime unless Cecil finds a way out.

On a journey of self discovery she starts to understand that what looks like magic as a child, is manipulation as an adult. That dreams can turn into nightmares.

This is a short erotic Halloween novella that at time of posting is available on Kindle Unlimited.

This is around 40 jam packed pages and it is five stars in hotness.

It's the night of Halloween and you're off to a sex club and that's all you need to know. Go in blind, it's a lot of fun but beware, this is a difficult book to read in public. My kindle was steaming.

I will be reading more from the author. Fantastic for such a short story!

This is a really short Halloween erotic novella at around 30 pages and my kindle was steaming!

Obviously this is a short story so there's no real plot or romantic build up, it's straight in with the steam.
If you like some spice in your spooky season reading then absolutely pick this one up.

Book three in the Boos & Booze Collection which at time of posting is available on Kindle Unlimited.

Imani is stuck in a mountain of grief after her husband passes away and whatever she does, she just can not let him go.

This entry into the collection is sad, and while the Fall Festival features, its not as spooky as the first two books although I can see why this one is included in the series.

Evie is new in Sapphire Springs and is looking forward to her first Fall Festival, she has a blind date and is happy to be out of the house after being convinced that it's haunted by a recently deceased aunt.

Broken Girls | Simone St James

Well, this was a successful horror thriller combo in my opinion.
Split between two main timelines, this book focuses on Idlewild Hall, a boarding school for illegitimate and troublesome girls during the early to mid 1900's.
There's a lot of characters here and while there's two main timelines, a lot of other timeless are being referred too but credit to the author as it was easy to follow. I had a great reading experience with this one.

I love character development in books and this book has that in abundance, the plot is slow however the character work is intense. I felt like I knew these characters on an intimate level, Izzy especially got under my skin. I felt her passion, her sense of justice and felt in my soul how misunderstood she was within her family unit.
These characters had me equally raging and heart breaking for them.
Easily five stars from me.

There's no fluff or decoration in this novel, every character and setting has a purpose. The actual story telling is beautifully basic but so many complexities run through the entire book.
There's so much here to discuss, how's does a Black woman in '76 adapt to the slavery era? How does a white man in '76 adapt to being a white man in 1812? How do the people of 1812 understand the people of future generations.
Fantastic sci-fi, loved it.

The most dangerous place for a woman to be is at home - I read that sentence over and over and everytime my heart hurts. It's still does.

This book tackles domestic abuse from all angles, from the abused to the abuser. Why does she stay? Why does he stay? The escalation, the backwards and forwards. The police departments, the shelters, the advocates.

As a big SK fan I'm disheartened by how unbothered I am about this series. I guess 'rocky' is the word I'd use to describe the experience so far, some books I've loved and others I'm meh about.

Go Ask Alice | Anonymous

When Alice goes to a party of a school friend and her drink is spiked with LSD nothing is ever the same again.

Written in diary form there is no consistency, sometimes there's an entry every day and then nothing for weeks. There's blanks and unexplained events and entries without any context but the reader gets the jist loud and clear.

Everything we see is through Alice's eyes, its as unreliable as any diary can be and it tore my heart out.

fredamans This was an epic read! 3mo

I really did learn so much reading this. Reading about Bunce Island sent me down a Internet rabbit hole. The effect of Uncle Toms Cabin on the British public makes me want to pick this book up soon, plus learning about Sarah Forbes Bonetta really was enlightening of the time period.

This is a pretty dense non fiction text and at times I felt I was wading through treacle but it really was worth the effort. Full review on Goodreads, link in bio.

Full disclosure, I'd already seen the Netflix adaptation before reading this one which I thought was pretty good so hopes were high when I went into this book.

This book is split into two parts and part one was brilliant, part two not so much. Even knowing what was going to happen I was jumpy, the atmosphere was intense and I fully admit that I couldn't read this before sleeping.

Part two really let the book down for me unfortunately.

BookDragonNotWorm That cover though! 😱 3mo
Michellesibs @BookDragonNotWorm Yeah, the cover is something! There's something about woods that we are programmed to fear and the author did a great job with that part! Very freaky! 3mo

I got more from googling this book than what I got from the actual reading experience. All I can tell you is there's a lot of gates and cows featured here.

What i did enjoy about this book though was the birth of Noah, we all love Noah, the guy who saved the animals two by two. I'd never given much thought to his family line and now I know it.

My understanding of religion is pretty minimal so not the best book for me to read.

Im not sure how Hobb does it, this book has almost 900 pages, the pages are far from action packed, there's no build up to an epic ending yet you can't stop reading and its so immersing. I see what people mean about it being a comfort read as that's excatly what it felt like to me.

Once again the world building is minimal but somehow the world is vibrant, Hobb really is excellent at creating worlds with a minimum of on page fuss.

Once upon a bye, before your Grandfather's Grandfather was born, Roland, Susannah, Eddie, Jake and Oy got stuck in a starkblast. When they found a safe place to settle for the night Roland told his ka-tet some fireside stories.

I didnt care much for this story within a story, perhaps it becomes relevant further along in the series but I wasn't feeling it.

Am looking forward to getting back on track with the main plot in the next book.

Cortg I'm hoping to finish the 4th book, Wizard and Glass, this weekned. I don't love the series, but each book I like more and more and I feel invested at this point. Should I read this one after the 4th book? Peeking around online it looks like maybe I should? 3mo

This is the first book in a series which centres around a tech guy in MI6, Marc Dane.
I didnt bond with the main character Marc and thats probably because the book is plot focused whereas I prefer getting to know my characters which I didnt get in these pages. Its all bang bang die bang bang die and repeat.
Not for me sadly.

It is always refreshing to read a book in this genre that has a thirty something year old protagonist.

Anna and Zoe are identical twin sisters, from A to Zee they are opposite in every way but their looks. Anna is thoughtful, considerate, kind. Zoe is selfish, spiteful and gets off on self destruction.
