This was a good read but my expectations being too high left me slightly disappointed (I expected to be terrified and wasn‘t). Still a pretty good read and definitely suspenseful!

Book 17 of 2021

This is such a great addition to this series! It was a slow build up that ended in an unexpectedly delightful way! I can‘t wait to pick up the 3rd book in this series soon!

Book #21 of 2020

My April reading was a bit slower than previous months but I finished the following:

Black Rock Bay by Brianna Labuskes
Sugar and Vice by Eve Calder
Tuesday‘s Gone by Nicci French
Cross Her Heart by Melinda Leigh
Watching From the Dark by Gytha Lodge

It ended up being a solid month quality wise even if I didn‘t read as many books as I usually do!

Book mail is the best mail! My sincere thanks to @AmyG for sending me her copy of A Court of Thrones and Roses by Sarah J. Maas - I‘ve had this one on my TBR for a long time but I‘ve never had the opportunity to read it until now! The other books are courtesy of the publishers - my many thanks to them also!
