Today's goal is to start this
I like this kind of strong & independent characters. I still would have loved to have more interaction with secondary characters. Big part of the book was about romance and I missed all political shenanigans that happened in the first book.
I loved the setting but most of all I adore how there is a bigger plot that still continues.
I couldn't relate to characters and I hated how husbands treated their wives. I think my problem with this book was that this was concentrating on housewives' every day problems and fights and not on vampires. This wasn't a horror story for my taste.
I loved the writing style though!
I also completed my goal and finished The Gambler Grimoire. My life is still a bit mess and it's hard to read like I used to. Maybe next month is better for me. I still have some books that I should read and we have only a week left 🤔
I finished a book but didn't manage to finish Storm & Shield today. I read it still forward! It's strange how emotionally hard it is to read a book that you have been reading when you lose someone. Review coming later.
Again trying to set as a goal to finish this book. It has been hard to read because I started it immediately after losing my cat.
I read a Finnish novel, that wasn't bad but neither especially good.
Characters were quite similar: everybody was unhappy. I just don't enjoy really sad & ugly stories. That's the reason why I didn't like the atmosphere, even though it was well created.
There was a bit too much everything, but that's quite common for debut books.
I have read these book. I didn't finish Storm & Shield, but I knew it was a tough goal in this situation. I suddenly cried yesterday for all the memories. But I still read more pages yesterday than any other day during the awful last week.
Same books read, but have also completed today's goal and started Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires.
Tryied to get something else to think about to go through my sorrow so went to a spa. After some time in bubble bath & sauna I ate a delicious meal. Then did some geocatching and I found a forgotten garden. I love them, it felt like a miracle. I wondered there and admired everything without rush.
Same books read, but have also completed today's goal and read some pages of Storm & Shield.
Storms of life makes reading slow. But I went outdoors with my dog and we admired migratory birds and autumn fields. Trying to go through this sorrow, leaving myself time & space to do that.
My goal today is to continue with this book. My cat surprisingly came to lay on my lap, unfortunately her comfort is usually short living. But at the moment I take any comfort I can get. I slept better last night, I was so tired.
