Our Violent Ends | Chloe Gong

My daughter gave me These Violent Delights at Christmas, and I was really upset that it was “to be continued”. I‘m glad I didn‘t have to wait too long for this one. It‘s a retelling of Romeo and Juliet. I keep hoping they won‘t die in the end, but I have this feeling….

Perfect book for a snuggly day. Boxing Day is my favourite. Just warm blankets, lots of tea, and all the books I haven‘t had time to read.

kamoorephoto I still need to read more of this series!! It amazes me how multiple authors can write together like this. Have you read the other ones? 4w

Witches? Chemists? Serial killers? Two hundred years ago, Nella sells potions only to women who want to rid themselves of oppressive men. There is also a lovely, adventurous 12 year old and a present day historian of sorts. Their fates all become intertwined. This has the all the great dark and magical things. I loved it.
