I spent my Tuesday flying through the seventh Josie Quinn installment and it was without doubt another winner! It's definitely one of my favorite detective series and one I always seem to read in one sitting as they are impossible to put down. 😍

When you are trying to take a cutesy kitty photo with your kindle, but your cat has different ideas. 😹😹 The Chain has me fully hooked and flying through those pages though! 😱👌

My current view. 😻 Reading this one in preparation for my blog tour stop this Saturday! So far it's turning out to be an interesting mix of historical fiction and magical realism. 👍

I was just about to sit down and read for a bit when my kindle battery died... So I picked up my copy of Changeling instead even though I have a pile of other books I should probably read first. 🙈😍 #currentlyreading

The Flatshare: A Novel | Beth O'Leary

I've been trying to eat healthier and decided to try the whole cauliflower rice thing tonight... The result: this mushroom and cauliflower risotto. It actually ended up being surprisingly tasty! 🙈😋

On a bookish note, I'm reading The Flatshare right now and I'm definitely enjoying it so far. I do hate Tilly's behavior towards Justin though! Seriously frustrating. 🤐

Hydra | Matt Wesolowski

October wrap up!! 📚 I managed to read no less than 24 books during October, although I do confess I DNFed two and another two were actually rereads of all time favorites I enjoyed just as much the second time around (A Man Called Ove and A Monster Calls).

Favorites this month (not counting the rereads) were Hydra, The Twisted Tree, The Lion Tamer Who Lost, The Other Daughter, Tunnel Of Bones and Deadly Silence. All 5 or 4,5 stars!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

SilversReviews Wow.....what a great October for you. 3w

Sometimes it's just the best feeling to put on hold all blogging obligations and instead reread an old favorite. ❤ I watched the A Monster Calls movie the other day and just couldn't resist picking up my recently arrived physical copy for a reread... It was absolutely magical as well as heartbreaking all over again. 😍😭❤

Hello beautiful!! 😍 I finally watched the Swedish movie adaptation of A Man Called Ove last night, and today I decided to pospone all blog obligations, put my current reads on hold and pick up my copy of A Man Called Ove for a long overdue reread instead. ❤ I'm so excited to be meeting favorite character Ove again and I can't wait to compare the original story to the movie afterwards while memories are still fresh. 😁

I always love a good international setting, and this #IcelandNoir trilogy definitely delivers. Cage is the third and final book of the series, and while different than the first two books it is still a solid read.

More in my blog tour review going live on my blog tomorrow!!

4/5 stars.

Blood Song | Johana Gustawsson

It's my stop of the Blood Song blog tour today!! It's the third book of one of my favorite newly discovered series, featuring bad ass characters Emily Roy and Alexis Castells. The first two books of this series already blew me away recently, but Blood Song took it one step further and left me both shell shocked and with my mouth hanging wide open. Or in one word: FLABBERGASTED. Boy, this book hit me hard!

5/5 stars

Blood Song | Johana Gustawsson

After being blown away by the first two books, I've been dying to start Blood Song... I've always had a special interest in Spain and its history, so having part of the story set during the Spanish Civil War and the Franco dictatorship makes this story extra special to me. 😍

Today it's time for my stop of the The Essence Of Evil blog tour! I knew I wanted to read this story as soon as I saw that the detective lead has a serial killer twin brother... Talk about a disturbing twist! The Essence Of Evil was without doubt an excellent read and a promising start of a new detective series. Dani Stephens is a fascinating character and I will be looking forward to hear more of her in the future!

4/5 stars

August 2019 wrap up! I read so many fantastic books in August and definitely way more than expected as well... Probably thanks to the #NEWTsReadathon2019 and my blogging break turning into a reading marathon. 😂

August favorites were: Keeper, The Willow Woman, The Sleepover, Dead Scared, The Passengers, The Archived, The Sixth Wicked Child and Twisted. All 4,5 or 5 star reads!! 😍

After so many people recommending this series and after loving book one, I already knew Keeper was going to be a winner... And I was right. The historical elements, Jack The Ripper, an international setting, the main characters, the writing, the plot and twists... Everything is just brilliant.

4,5/5 stars.

I've been a fan of Carol Wyer's detective thrillers ever since I first met Robyn Carter way back, and I'm really enjoying my time with Natalie Ward so far. The Sleepover is already book number for and without doubt another success!

Long time no see! 😅 I just got a new phone and when I was browsing apps to install I decided to give Litsy another go again... Let's see if I can stick around this time around. 😆

I recently finished the third and final #4MK book and it simple blew me away! I have a weird obsession with serial killer thrillers, and this trilogy is hands down one of my favorites. So SO good!!! 😍

Long time no see! 😅 I hope everyone is having a wonderful start of the weekend... I will be spending my Friday evening with a new story and one of the pending 2018 NG ARCs: Hunting Annabelle by Wendy Heard. I always like to go in blind, so I totally didn't expect the mental health angle! I'm definitely curious how things will develop...

What are you reading this weekend?

yvo_about_books @Ashley85 it definitely wasn't what I was expecting! I had some issues with credibility and some of the plot twists, but overall it was an interesting and quite original read. It did read more YA than adult though despite the twenty-something characters. 12mo
