"Yes, Celia dear. He is young - far younger than me, in fact. One of my greatest achievements, I daresay."

"Don't you get worried? There's got to be a lot of young dishes out there who want to put the moves on him."

"I don't worry about dishes, my dear. Dishes break."

And the local library is shockingly low on audiobook so I want to find her some spooky stories, she loves ghosts. What can you guys recommend. Thanks in advance.

Damn, kinda sad this one ended but it's ok because the next one is right beside me. It's books like this that make me wonder how some people can't like books, this has everything, action, romance, suspense. It's fast paced and riveting.
5/5🌟

Has anyone else read this. I'm feeling so many emotions but mainly anger. Poor little Ziggy.

Apple Tree Yard: A Novel | Louise Doughty

Not sure how many stars to give this book. I enjoyed it but at the same time there were bits that I extremely disliked.

blurb

Friend book this month.

M.E Thomas is a high functioning, non-cruminal sociopath. She is charismatic and successful. You would be charmed by her if you met her, might even be seduced by her. You would not realise that she is studying you to find your flaws, is ruthlessly manipulative and does not feel guilt or remorse. And since it is claimed that one in twenty-five of us are sociopaths, she could be your friend or your boss. She could be you.

CoverToCoverGirl Very intriguing.. 3y
ReadingOver50 That book sounds so great 3y

Enjoying this very much. Main character is extremely relatable although we are nowhere near similar in age, nor would I do the things this character has done, however, I still feel a strong connection.

Finished this the other day. It wasn't awful but it wasn't amazing. As someone who used to read alot of fanfic, it reads like a really well done one. However, there were times where I felt like maybe I had missed something just to find out nope it just jumps time.

This books only gets 3⭐⭐⭐ from me.

The Shadow Queen | CJ Redwine

"A warrior doesn't focus on the odds stacked against her. She focuses on her heart, on her will to face the evil in her world and defeat it, and then she finds a way to do it."

This quote goes rather well with my Tattoo that says warrior that sits over my heart.

Finally finished this book. I can't actually remember why I put it down. But it was just as good as her other novels, tho I will admit not feeling as much of a connection with Jacquetta as I did with the women in the novels that follow.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5

This has to be the best book I've ever been bought. I found Katherine to be a likeable person, whose love for her husband and her God remained strong despite all the hardships she faced throughout her time in England. I wouldn't change a thing about this book.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book finally arrived yesterday and I'm already half way through. The pace is fast and witty. Can't wait to read the rest. It made me feel kinda sad when she spoke about Carrie Fisher as this book came out a few weeks before the sad events of the past week.

The Widow | Fiona Barton

Mehso-so

This book is ⭐⭐⭐ for me. For two reasons:
1) It started off extremely strong but nearly lost my attention towards the end.
2) Firm believer in trigger warnings and I would probably not have picked up or read this book had it had one. (Probably why they don't put them.)
This book will definately be going to a charity shop, sadly.

However, I did knock one of my TBR pile so go me!

Being very spoilt this week. My boyfriend is going to buy me 2 new books a week up until Christmas. This week's picks are:

Heartless by Marissa Meyer
A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

Can't wait to dig my teeth into these and trying to decide which two books to pick next.

This is the first comic I have ever read and I am so glad I started with this one. The art work by Rafael Albuquerque is spectacular... and the writing from Scott Snyder and Stephen King is gripping. I can't wait to read more in this series.

Eligible | Curtis Sittenfeld

Absolutely adored this book. It was extremely witty and clever at times. And I was glad to see if followed the general principles of Pride and Prejudice whilst incorporating modern problems, such as, racism and LGBT rights.

I would have given this 5 Stars but I founds Mrs Bennett to extremely unlikeable with no redeeming qualities.

4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

LubicaP Co-signed! This is a big-hearted, well-written modern version of P&P and it will boost your mood. I laughed out lout several times. 3y
