A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn

It was the cover of this book that first led me to download it from NetGalley, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when starting A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn. This book is the first in the Veronica Speedwell Mystery series, and introduces us to our kick-ass heroine and her unique profession of lepidoptery – or butterfly hunting. Veronica loves nothing more than to travel the world looking for unique species of butterfly, indulging in the occasional romantic dalliance along the way. The death of her spinster aunt at…

Secret Garden 1

Adult colouring books have recently become very popular. They’re meant to relieve stress and anxiety, they’re used as therapy, and as an outlet for those of us who maybe have limited artistic flare, able to create something beautiful without having to do the actual drawing.

I get absorbed, and if you’re anything like me, become a a little bit obsessed, especially with keeping within the lines! The Secret…

Otherworld Night - Kelley Armstrong

Otherworld Nights is the first of three anthologies that are set in Kelley Armstrong’s epic, Women of the Otherworld series! Yes, you did hear right. This is the first of three, and each book has been packed with novellas that feature some of our favourite characters. I am huge fan of novellas, I think they add something extra within a big series of books. These long stories are a way for us to get back to our favourites, such as Elena and Clay and will allow the reader to explore…

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

After reading and loving Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha series, I’ve been on tenterhooks waiting for her next release, Six of Crows, the first in a duology. I knew I had to dive into this book as soon as I received it from the publisher and, like her previous books, I couldn’t put it down until I’d read to the very end. This new series is set in the same universe as the Grisha, although it is by no means a prerequisite to have read the previous books, with this first instalment…
