The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian UK cover

The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian is the first in the Chaos Theory series, and I have to say that this has been my favourite book to read so far this year. The book begins with heroine Evalyn Ibarra, who has been sentenced to a one month stretch in a Compass Room, following her imprisonment for acts of terrorism. These Compass Rooms are new scientific advancements which can supposedly determine whether an individual is morally good (or evil), and thus worthy of regaining their freedom or being executed…

Affliction - Laurell K. Hamilton

Affliction is book 22 in the Anita Blake series, and it’s a series I have a love to hate relationship with. I’ve nearly given up on it a couple of times, but there is something quite compelling about Hamilton’s writing. The last couple of books before this one have been an improvement, I really enjoyed Hit List, then felt that Kiss the Dead took a bit of a step backwards. But, the good news is that Affliction is undoubtedly one of the best books in the series in a long…

A Gentleman Undone by Cecilia Grant UK cover

A Gentleman Undone, the second book in the Blackshear Family series by Cecilia Grant, introduces us to Will Blackshear, brother of Martha from book one, but can easily be read as a standalone title. The book begins with a flashback to Will’s days in the army at Waterloo, and the loss of one of his comrades. He is haunted by these events, as he feels responsible for the soldier’s death and wishes to make amends with the widow, by bestowing her with enough money to live independently. By no means…

Fool for Love by Beth Ciotta

OCTOBER’S BOOK CLUB READ Fool for Love is the first book in Beth Ciotta’s Cupcake Lovers contemporary romance series. I started out thinking it would be a fluffy small town romance, but instead I got a really well written, insightful and sexy small town romance, with a lot more going on than just the blossoming passion between the main characters. Chloe Madison has just been dumped by her boyfriend and she’s feeling very sorry for herself, especially as he did it on what should have been one of the most…

Sins & Needles

GEMMA On Every Street left me wanting to know more about Ellie and what type of person that she would turn out to be. While Sin’s and Needles takes a bit of a time jump from where its predecessor left off, it more than gave me an insight into Ellie and it also managed to give a sense that eventually your past will catch up to you. It seems that Ellie’s betrayal from On Every Street has corrupted her to the point that it appears that she is treading the…
