I loved this! Packed with twists, drama, and suspense. I absolutely loved Daisy, and of course, I ADORED Poppins, the dog! I'll definitely look for more by this author.

Started out great. Yet the pace was all over, and it was just missing *something*. I'm not wasting time wading through treacle. If I'm not enjoying a book anymore, I'm bailing!

It's rained AAAAAALL DAY here. And I'm so full of cold 🤧
So I've had an afternoon on the couch under a blanket with a good summer read and a Dark Terry's Chocolate Orange. Bliss.

And I thought Den of Vipers was the greatest life, ever. Sadie Kincaid said, "Hold my beer," and delivered this absolute treat.
Reverse harem with some seeeeeeerious spice. I was gutted when I finished this. Zeke was my favourite ?

Stunningly beautiful. The writing is almost poetic.

I cared about both main characters and wished for their happy ending from the first chapter. I loved the MMC romance and the representation of a Neurodiverse main character in a positive light getting their happily ever after.

Just lovely. So romantic.

I saw a review for this that said, "Bridget Jones, if she found herself in a Scream movie" and I couldn't have put it better myself ?
Gwen was hilarious. So dry, yet so tragic.
Is it predictable? Yes.
Is it cheesy? Yes.
Is it brilliant? Yes.

It's not a groundbreaking life changer, but stick this in your beachbag or read on a rainy day with a cup of tea, and you'll be chuckling away.

Sorry if this seems irrelevant, but tomorrow marks the end of World Autism Acceptance week. I am a huge advocate for Neurodiversity, whether that is Autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder etc...

I hope that by sharing this, I may encourage at least one person to read about Autism, to enable autistic people to become more understood.

My daughter is autistic, and I hope that one day the world will allow her to flourish and not just survive. 💜

Absolutely bloody gorgeous.
I saw so much of myself in Emma. Such a relatable novel, packed with humour, emotion, and spirit. I laughed, cried, and everything in between. This is a really easy read and perfect for people who wanted to enjoy "Normal People" but found the characters unrealistic and pretentious. I loved it. But, yes, I'm still crying.

I dragged this out as I didn't want it to end. I've not felt that way about a book in a long time.
The last few pages, I was sobbing. Although, I was ugly crying in parts throughout the book.

So beautifully written. The research that has gone into the book is absolutely phenomenal.
Book of the year. Hands down. If I could give 6 stars out of 5, I would. An absolute masterpiece.

Scarred | Emily McIntire

Mehso-so

Name a better Disney movie than The Lion King? It's Shakespeare with music and fur!

"Scarred" is a slow burn dark romance, which is a twist of "The Lion King" or "Hamlet". The main character & morally grey man is (you guessed it).... SCAR.
Now, Scar is my all time favourite villain. He is witty, sassy & pure evil. Tristan was ? but the book just missed something. I loved the Lion King references, but I found Sara bland. Her POV was tedious.

I've loved having Molly the Maid back. She is as endearing, entertaining, and quirky as ever.
I much preferred this to "The Maid" as we got to know Molly more, and she had some corker one-liners. Feel good, cheesy, unique, and fun. A huge thumbs up from me!

Very different to CoHo's usual soppy, chick lit tear jerkers. This will divide people. You'll either really like it or will hate it. I liked it.
The characters are flawed, and the subject is gritty. It's also quite intense and vulgar in parts.
Trigger warnings for domestic abuse, drug misuse, sexual assault, gas lighting and violence.

This was such a great twist - the female character is the morally grey villain.
Wicked is my favourite musical ever, and I loved the little snipets you got from Wicked and The Wizard of Oz.
I didn't enjoy it as much as "Hooked," but I still liked it all the same. A firm 3.5 stars.

Hooked | Emily McIntire

I loved it!
EM has taken one of the most beloved stories of all time (Peter Pan) and given it a dark, modern, twisted retelling.
After watching the Once Upon a Time series a few years and falling in love with that version of "Hook", I almost put a hole in my kindle in my haste to download "Hooked" when I saw it was on Kindle Unlimited!
Safe to say, Hook can kidnap me any day ?

I will never, ever be able to watch Peter Pan in the same way again.

Emma tragically lost her husband, Jesse, when the helicopter he was in goes missing. Years later, Emma has worked through her grief and found love again with her fiancé, Sam. One evening, during a family celebration, she receives a call that changes everything. A call from Jesse.

TJR smashes it, as usual. Beautifully written and packed with emotion and depth. Stunning.

Have you ever had someone tell you a story that they think is hilarious and interesting, but it's not funny or entertaining at all?
And when they're telling the story, they take forever to get to the point and just go around the houses explaining their really lame story?
That's what reading this book was like.

Absolutely gorgeous. I am an emotional wreck ? in my top three this year.

Mabel loses her husband after 62 years of marriage and has no family or friends to help her with the grieving process. "The Library" meets "Eleanor Oliphant" with a dash of "Evelyn Hugo". Just wonderful.

Proof that you're never too old to make new friends and find yourself. A lovely story about accepting who you truly are and the beauty of friendship.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
The Witches of Vardo

Feel like pure shit, just want them back 😭😭😭😭

Anyone else?! If so, what books?

lil1inblue This book was so good. It was an excellently researched history of 2 rival queens in 6th century France. It was hard to read any non-fiction after because it was just. so. good. In fact, I DNFed the next non-fiction book I read, because this one set such a high standard. It read like fiction, and I audibly gasped on more than one occasion. 2mo

Where's Molly | H D Carlton

A Cat and Mouse spin-off with one of the most intriguing characters of "Hunting Adeline" I was sold before I even started ?

Spicy, gory, dark, gothic, and addictive. H D Carlton did not hold back! It made me wanna reread the Cat and Mouse duet to get my Zade fix!

I loved Molly and Cage! Also, that final sentence in the epilogue was ? I need more.

emz711 I didn't know there was a spin off. I haven't tried those books yet. Have you read Hooked? Is it similar? 2mo
jamield1911 @emz711 I've not read Hooked yet. It's on my TBR! If you've not read the Cat & Mouse Duet yet, I'd try the spin-off novella "Satan's Affair" first. It's a good one to dip your toe in as the books are VERY VERY dark, especially "Hunting Adeline" I love dark romance, I like anything gritty and gory but even I was wincing in parts! I'd read the trigger warnings beforehand, too, if there is anything you're sensitive with. However, they're excellent! 2mo

Roxy is sold to a brutal crime family, "The Vipers", by her father when he owes them money he doesn't have. Roxy initially fights and resits them, but Stockholm Syndrome (I will not be told otherwise) sets in, and she falls in love.

Roxy was a total dick. I couldn't stand her. Thought she was a mobster after a week.
Diesel was TOO psychotic.
I like Ryder, but he was bland.
Garrett and Kenzo were ???

Plenty of spice & gore. Too fucking long.

Surely I read a different book to everyone else?!
I HATED IT.

I normally LOVE a forbidden romance. Also, gay representation - yes, count me in! It was just so bad.

Unnecessarily long. Over 700 pages... could have been executed in 300. The smut was almost constant. To the point I got so bored. If the author cut the words "yea" (annoying AF) and "baby" the book would only be around 15 pages long. If I hear the word "baby" again, I'm gonna scream.

This had so much potential, but I found the plot all over the place and a little sloppy.
I could not warm to Izzy, I sympathised with her after having her child taken from her but she was not likable at all. Quite an emotional book.
Trigger warnings for psychosis, death of a child, kidnapping, suicide, depression and more.

The Jigsaw Man | Nadine Matheson

Extremely gory with a serial killer who makes human jigsaw pieces of his victims with an almost identical likeliness to Hannibal Lector.
It was good, not great. The charmingly personal yet chilling serial killer has been done to death now (no pun intended), and no one has executed it quite like Thomas Harris.
As a former prison officer, I can confirm that the prison scenes were ridiculous. Those scenes ruined it for me. Also, it was far too long.

An identity thief & one of her victims become shipwrecked on an island with a complete creep.

I loved Sawyer but found that Enzo could be incredibly cruel towards her, to the point I found their interactions to be uncomfortable. Despite their rocky relationship, the spice was so strong that I thought my Kindle was going to burst into flames.

TW for PTSD, sexual assault, child abuse and more. Tread carefully if you're of a sensitive disposition.
