The Ultimate Book Tag

I saw this tag over at Lili Lost In A Book and loved the questions so had to join in!
Like Lili, I'm not tagging anyone in particular so if you want to give it a go, consider yourself tagged!

🌻

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

Yep! The only form of transport I can read on are planes and trains.

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

Erm... I don't really know.
I guess Mariana Zapata's writing style is pretty different from most and definitely wouldn't suit a lot of people.
Kristen Ashley is another that takes a lot of getting used to. The way she phrases things and her characters' speech tends to be pretty whacked.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Harry Potter because it's British, it's magic and it's a part of my personal history in a way that Twilight is not and will never be.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is it in (besides books...)?

I have a bag that can hold my kindle and since I predominantly read on my kindle, I don't worry about whether my bag is big enough for books anymore (but my bag is big enough for a paperback).
It also carries my phone, wallet, hairbrush, lip balm, headphones, a notebook, pens, keys etc.
Usual bag bits.

I also have a bookish tote bag that I fold up within my handbag and can pull out if I need more carrying power as well as some fold-up bags for when shopping.
(Our stores don't do free plastic bags so we need our own or to buy them each time.)

5. Do you smell your books?

Nope. I'm not gonna judge those that do but I just don't get the whole book smell thing.

6. Books with or without little illustrations?

I really don't care. I guess they can enhance the story but I can take or leave them.

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

Nothing jumps to mind and I don't think I really like the judgement of "quality writing".
Some authors can write beautifully but their stories are boring af.
Other authors may not write well but the story engages you regardless.
I tend to just take things as they come. That's not to say I haven't read books and wished a better writer had written them (hello Fifty Shades!) but it is what it is.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

Not really.
Back when I was a kid, I was the only reader in my house (my mum didn't take to books until I was in my teens and convinced her to read Harry Potter) so most of my bookish stories revolved around late letters from the library because I'd forget when they were due to be returned.
Those letters weren't funny.

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

These two!

I bought them when they were released as a special editions for Comic Relief.
They are tiny little things... I think they were re-released later and bulked up a little but I still have these versions.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

This one!

And I still haven't read this series... I bought them as they released with the intention of reading them when the series was complete but still haven't gotten to them. 

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I attempted NaNoWriMo once! It was a bit of a disaster.
I wouldn't class myself as a writer and I'm extremely unlikely to ever strive for a future as an author but I will admit that I've periodically picked at that book I started during NaNoWriMo 18months ago so who knows?

12. When did you get into reading?

I never "got into" reading. I've been a reader as long as I can remember.
I used to get off the school bus at the library and stay there until my mum finished work and would pick me up so I could sit and read books (rather than head home to the grandparents).
I'd have been no older than my son is now when I did that... aka nine-years-old.
I became an absolute book fiend when I hit university and had funds and constant access to bookstores and a fledgeling Amazon.
Good times.

13. What is your favorite classic book?

I'm not a big classics reader but I love Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.
Can't really choose between them. 

14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?

Nope, I excelled at science - Chemistry, Biology and Physics.
I  also got an A in History so I guess that's an Arts subject but I went the science route with my education.
With hindsight, I should have gone with History for I love it! Science got me where I am but it's not my passion...

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated... what would you do?

Nod politely, smile and say thank you?
Then, later, I'd pass it onto someone else who hadn't read it and might like it.

16. What is a lesser-known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

Pass.
I have no idea.

17. What is a bad habit you always do while blogging?

I'm going to have to echo Liliana a little and say tabs! I open a million tabs... I read comments on my blog then open a tab for that person's blog to return comments, I click on linked posts on people's posts and open them in new tabs, I have social media tabs, Goodreads, Amazon, picmonkey... You name it. I steadily work my way through it all before closing my browser but it's chaos.

I'm also really bad for saving everything to my desktop and sorting it out later. Much much later.

18. What is your favorite word?

Fuck.
I don't use it much on the blog - or not on published versions of posts - but I think it's my all-time favourite word. I use it plain and I spice it up in many interesting configurations.
I can genuinely make an entire sentence where every other word is fuck.
It's a skill.

19. Are you a nerd or a geek?

Aren't these two pretty much the same thing?
Or is there something fundamental about one of them I'm missing?
Either way, you can call me whichever you please as I'm sure they both fit. 

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Vampires. No Fairies! No... I don't know.
Actually, I do. I'll go faeries.
I'd rather be a living, breathing creature, even if I'm full of trickery and can't lie, than be a reanimated corpse.
Unless we're talking living vampires like the Black Dagger Brotherhood? In that case, I may have to review my answer.

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

I would say shapeshifters! I'm not one for theological beings... But if we're talking Nephilim then I'm changing my answer! I like angel spawn stories.
Oh hell... Why do I have to choose?
Gah! Okay. Angels.

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Werewolves!
I don't like ghosts.
Ghost stories can never end well for a romance reader.

23. Zombies or Vampires? Why?

Vampires.
Even when vampires are the reanimated dead kind they aren't typically portrayed as mindless, brain eating, beasts... But I much prefer the different species or the altered by magic kind of vampires to the brought back from the dead ones.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

Forbidden love! Oh my! The feels...
Love-triangles just piss me off.

25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

Why do I have to choose?!
I like full-on romance. I love action with a few love scenes mixed in.
At the end of the day, I'm a romance junkie, I need it. However, I don't like zero to full blown "I'll die for you" in the span of two minutes. Build it up! Mix the action in! Make them earn it. Make me believe it. Slow burning romantic UF is my absolute favourite everything for this very reason.

🌻

PS - I have no idea where this tag originally originated from. Liliana found it on two other blogs (tagged in her post) and they seem to have found it on another blog and... Yeah. You get the idea. Many many thanks to whoever came up with it though!

The Little Bookshop of Love Stories by Jaimie Admans


*eARC received via NetGalley*



Today is the Mondayest Monday ever. Hallie Winstone has been fired – and it wasn’t even her fault!

Having lost her job and humiliated herself in front of a whole restaurant full of diners, this is absolutely, one hundred percent, the worst day of her life.

That is until she receives an email announcing that she is the lucky winner of the Once Upon a Page Bookshop!

Owning a bookshop has always been Hallie’s dream, and when she starts to find secret love letters on the first pages of every book, she knows she's stumbled across something special.

Things get even better when she meets gorgeous, bookish Dimitri and between them, they post a few of the hidden messages online, reuniting people who thought they were lost forever.

But maybe it’s time for Hallie to find her own happy-ever-after, too?


This book is an ode to all book lovers. A big warm cuddle of bookish delight. A tribute to brick and mortar bookstores and the joy of holding a physical book in your hands.
It is utterly and completely enchanting and all things that are wonderful about books.
It made me smile from cover to cover. It made me want to own a bookshop. It made me want to find a second hand bookstore and start my own search for messages written within the pages.
It was delightful.

Hallie and Dimitri are quirky, clumsy and relatable. They are me, and they are you, (i.e ordinary people, living their lives, and loving books) and watching them fall in love while breathing new life into an old bookstore brought nothing but happiness.
This pair were made for each other and even the predictable "twist" (and subsequent overreaction) couldn't dim the feeling of bookish euphoria this book generated in me as I knew it would all work out in the end and it did.

This book is completely unapologetic in what it is. It's a feel-good romance, full of wish fulfilment,  with a definite happy ever after that leaves you feeling invigorated and optimistic.
It was exactly what I needed at the moment and I know that when I think of this book I'll smile, so I'd say that's a job well done for the author!

How To Kiss An Undead Bride & How To Survive An Undead Honeymoon by Hailey Edwards


My thoughts on The Beginners Guide To Necromancy series (books 1-6).

FYI - 
These are not normal novel-length stories but they're definitely longer than a novella would be... Around 200 pages in length.

Spoilers ahead for the series as a whole!

🌻



Groom? Check.
Dress? Check.
Cake? Check.
More cake? Double Check.
Even more cake? Triple check.
(Seriously, who left Lethe alone with Grier's credit card?)

Anything that can go wrong has,but all the deposits have been paid, and the menus are set. Mostly. There's always room for more cake, right? All that's left is for Grier and Linus to exchange vows and set off on their honeymoon. Their happily ever after awaits, so close they can taste it.

No. Wait. That's probably just more cake. Frosting gets everywhere.

Anyway, there's also murder, arson, and general mayhem. This is what happens when two potentates marry. Just cross your fingers they survive exchanging vows, and that the knot they tie doesn't turn into a noose.



I absolutely adored The Beginner's Guide To Necromany series and Linus and Grier have become one of my most favourite bookish couples ever. Therefore, I was stupidly happy to read epilogue novellas showing them in that state of happy ever after!

How To Kiss An Undead Bride is - unsurprisingly - about their wedding!
It's set a couple of years after the end of the main series and unlike the main series has chapters from both Linus and Griers pov! *happy dances!*
The time jump was a welcome thing as it shows how they'd progressed as a couple, touched on how they'd navigated Linus being split between Savannah and Atlanta (while training two new Potentates) and the strain that puts on even the most rock-solid of relationships.
I was a bit disappointed to see Linus still struggling to believe, on occasion, that he was getting to marry the love of his life (and that she actually loved him) however, I wasn't surprised for the guy has been through the wringer over the years. I absolutely loved how Grier was on a mission to erase the doubt though.

The book was a wonderful blend of fast-paced action - for (gasp!) someone is out to sabotage the wedding! - and sweet and touching moments between Linus and Grier and their extended bunch of happy weirdos. It was nice checking in and getting to "see" what's going on with them.

There was no new world-building, the novel isn't the start of a new series, it's just a snippet in time... A slice of life... An epic thank you to fans of the series and as such it should not be read as a standalone, imo.
However! If you've read the series and love Linus, Grier and the gang, then you absolutely don't want to miss it!

🌻



Nothing says romance like spending a long weekend at a haunted inn famed for sending its guests to the ER with scratches, bites, and fractures. Or so Linus thinks when he books a trip for Grier and himself to Oliphant House. As far as honeymoons go, the choice is nontraditional, but then, so is his bride.

Haunted history is one of Grier’s great loves, and she’s thrilled to discover Linus has given her a mystery to solve. Forget walks on moonlit beaches and sipping fruity drinks, Grier would much rather unravel the curse that’s plagued the Oliphant family for generations than pick sand from between her toes.

The resident spooks, however, aren’t happy with the newlyweds sticking their noses where they don’t belong. Between the missing persons, the dead bodies, and the secrets lurking in the basement, Linus and Grier start to wonder if they’ll survive their honeymoon.


The second epilogue story and this time we get to go on Linus and Grier's honeymoon!
This book was a little bit shorter than Undead Wedding and has a different feel to the first.
For a start, they're on honeymoon so they're away from Woolworth House (so no sentient dwelling) and they're away from their friends, family and the politics that comes with being titans of Necromantic society so very different pace and tone.
However, Grier and Linus attract trouble wherever they go so, true to form, there is evil afoot, a mystery to solve and shenanigans to survive!
I enjoyed the story, I love the subtle shift in Linus now they're officially married (insecurities seem to be on the decline) and enjoyed seeing them as a duo without the support network... Until the support network gatecrashes for the big finale!
I love Lethe and Hood but come on! It's their honeymoon! Give them some peace!
But the big reveal - which I guessed before the big reveal - kinda made up for the gatecrashing and I'm now stupidly excited for the final (sob!) of the epilogue stories - How to Rattle An Undead Couple!

Once again, this story isn't designed to be read on its own. It's written for fans of the series so I don't recommend reading if you haven't read the main series.
If you have, read read read!

Series Review: The Beginner's Life To Necromancy by Hailey Edwards


OMG, It was love at the first chapter for me and this series! 
I'd been in a reading funk so wasn't expecting to get caught and dragged straight into a whole new world, that I couldn't put down and never wanted to leave, but that's exactly what happened!

As soon as I started reading I had one of those "click" moments when you just know you're going to love what's on offer and love it I did!
It gripped me from the very first book and each in the series just got better and better. All six books devoured between Monday and Saturday... Yep, less than a week and once I'd finished, I still couldn't let it go so spent the following week re-reading favourite parts and devouring the two epilogue short-novels. 
What can I say? It just ticked my boxes. 

The world created by Edwards felt fresh and different when compared to so many other Urban Fantasy settings. It's a world that contains a whole manner of different paranormal beasties but the focus of this series is on the necromancers.
It's not often I've read a series featuring necromancers but Edward's take on them, and the origins of vampires, felt fresh and original.

The series focuses on Grier, a young woman in her early twenties who starts off so vulnerable and broken but as the story progresses she heals, finds answers, grows strong and becomes utterly badass while falling in love with quite possibly the best book boyfriend I've ever encountered!
(Oh yes, I went there!)
Linus is a beautiful person who just respects Grier. He doesn't try to own her, he doesn't try to control her. He supports her completely and works with her to ensure she's safe and will survive whatever the hell she's up to and Grier does exactly the same for him!
They are partners. True partners. There's no fuckery or manipulation. Just love and caring... A truly healthy relationship!
And what's even better is Linus has no clue how awesome he is! The guy is good-looking, super smart, utterly lethal, rich, well-bred and he has no clue how anyone could want him for him and not for his status and wealth.
I loved him. I loved him on his own and I loved him for Grier... He was every bit as broken and damaged by what happened to Grier in the past as she was but just in a different way.
Their slow-burning romance was addictive and lovely and I treasured it.
It took Grier a long time to realise what she had right in front of her - her preoccupation with another guy who I loathed, btw - blinded her but the pay off was totally worth it.
These two characters will hold a special place in my heart for a very long time.

In fact, the entire series is full of characters who are memorable and full of quirks.
Some are infinitely likeable and some are most definitely not but all are wonderfully written and distinctive.

The books are atmospheric and masterfully crafted to deliver the perfect balance between action and the slower moments which a lot of UF books lack.
Each book adds layers to the world - avoiding messy info dumps - and each builds upon the mystery of the last leading to an epic conclusion.
There are no cliffhangers and each ending delivers something a little bit different.

I couldn't have asked for anything more than I got with this series for there was little I didn't like about it. If you're an urban fantasy fan who loves a good romance then this is definitely worth checking out!
(Trust me, you want to meet Linus!)

How to Save An Undead Life


About The Book
Grier Woolworth spends her nights weaving spooky tales of lost souls and tragedies for tourists on the streets of downtown Savannah. Hoop skirt and parasol aside, it's not a bad gig. The pay is crap, but the tips keep the lights on in her personal haunted mansion and her pantry stocked with ramen.

Life is about as normal as it gets for an ex-necromancer hiding among humans. Until the society that excommunicated Grier offers her a second chance at being more than ordinary. Too bad no one warned her the trouble with being extraordinary is it can get you killed.

💬 “Make no apologies for surviving.” 💬

💬 “We all kept secrets. Some out of kindness, some in anger, and others to protect ourselves.” 💬

How To Claim An Undead Soul


About The Book
Life was simpler for Grier when she was flat broke and a social pariah. Now she's carrying the baggage that goes along with the title of Dame Woolworth, and shouldering that weight is giving her a serious crick in the neck. Her work as a Haint is the one thing that makes her feel normal, but even that's more paranormal than usual.

Spirits are vanishing from well-known hot spots on the ghost tour circuit, and vampires are turning up as shriveled husks. When Grier stumbles across the menace preying on Savannah's supernatural community, what she uncovers is bigger than a few flickering lampposts gone dark. It's a deadly threat unleashed by one of their own, and the cost of saving her city might be her life.

💬 On my way through the living room, I stopped to check on Keet, who hung upside down from his swing like a bat from a cave ceiling. I reached through the bars and scratched his cheek. "Stay weird, my friend.” 💬

How To Break An Undead Heart


About The Book
Grier finally has the one thing she’s always wanted: Boaz Pritchard. Too bad her dream boyfriend is keeping her up nights, just not in a sweaty or fun way. Boaz has dialed down the Southern charm and stopped returning her calls. His job forces him to keep secrets, but his radio silence is cranking up her suspicions. He’s a shameless flirt, but he’s her shameless flirt… right?

Soon an attack on Woolworth House leaves her with bigger problems than he loves me, he loves me not. Vampires are on the prowl, and they aren’t the only predators circling. A new threat has emerged, one with blood rights to Grier. With enemies closing in on all sides, she must choose her allies, and the decision could make or break her… and her heart.

💬 “All good partnerships ought to require both people to take turns being the damsel, like a team-building exercise.” 💬

How To Dance An Undead Waltz 


About The Book
Grier is nursing a broken heart after Boaz announced his engagement to another woman, but life goes on. Or it would if vampire assassins would stop taking pot shots at her every time she leaves Woolworth House. Seriously, who sends archers to deliver murdergrams these days?


To protect herself, Grier must pull out all the stops, even if it means revealing her darkest secret. All eyes are on her, and — for the first time — she begins to understand why Linus wears so many masks. But the target isn’t Grier, and when the archers single him out, it feels like one of their arrows might have struck what remains of her heart.

💬 “We all deserve someone who takes care of us, even when we don’t need it.” 💬

How To Live An Undead Lie


About The Book
When a fledgling vampire arrives at Woolworth House searching for his maker, Grier is forced to relive her time in Atramentous. Most of those years are as dark and empty in her memory as she was in her cell. She can't remember her progeny, or the night she resuscitated him, but she can protect him from the Society. As long as she's willing to barter with her grandfather to do it.

But Lacroix has plans of his own. He envisions the city--her city--under his rule, and Grier under his thumb. Now all he needs is the right leverage to force her cooperation, and he has just the person in mind. Grier is ready to trade her freedom until a grim truth is revealed that splits her heart in two. Yet another person she loves has betrayed her, and Grier is left agonizing over how much of their relationship is real and how much was a lie.

💬 “I will never cage you.” He took my hand and kissed my fingertips. “Not with love or otherwise.” 💬

💬 “I don’t need to prove you’re mine.” Linus skated chill fingers along my jaw, and prickling flesh rose in response. “You’re not a thing I possess. I hold no ownership over you.” 💬

How To Wake An Undead City


About The Book
Savannah has fallen to the vampires, and it’s up to Grier to take out their leader, Gaspard Lacroix, and restore peace. Lacroix might be more powerful and immune to her magic, but she’s got a plan. Too bad it’s got holes big enough for a new threat to waltz through while the city is on her knees.

Now Grier must risk her very soul if she hopes to slay her enemies and prevent her world from going up in flames. But salvation comes at a steep price, and she’s not the only one who will pay. The cost just might break her, and the man who owns her heart

💬 He was a remarkable man because of his heart, his mind, and the simple kindness and thoughtfulness that came so easily to him. 💬

One For The Road by Katia Rose





Better late than never.

It’s the phrase on the tip of everyone’s tongues. For three years, every staff member and regular at Taverne Toulouse has watched Zach and DeeDee edge their way closer to the grand finale of a ‘will they, won’t they’ dance that feels like it’s lasted for decades.

Bets have been placed. Wagers have been drawn. The whole of Montreal’s most famous dive bar is holding its breath. Will the small town boy with a heart of gold finally make a move on the wild, pink-haired bartender he’s been in love with for years, or will the moment pass them by and leave Zach and DeeDee insisting they’re ‘just friends’ yet again?

A rowdy night at the bar gets served with a twist that sends DeeDee spinning—not into Zach’s arms, but straight into his living room. With his dream girl crashing on his couch for a few weeks and brightening his days with spontaneous dance parties and eventful forays into the art of hair dyeing, Zach’s feelings only get stronger, and DeeDee’s follow right behind.

He calms her storms, and she streaks his skies with lightning. They fill each other’s gaps with a symmetry neither of them can ignore, but every step closer only raises the stakes of losing it all.

Late or never. A choice three years in the making. Their final shot to get it right.

One for the Road is part of the Barflies series, a set of standalone of romantic comedies that chronicle the lives and loves of the staff at a Montreal dive bar.

*ARC provided by author for honest review*


For those who've read the earlier books in the Barflies series - not to mention the Sherbrooke Station series - you'll be familiar with DeeDee and Zach... DeeDee the wild, pink-haired, bartender of Tavern Toulouse and sweetheart Zach who has been crushing on her for forever... I've been hoping they'd get their story told and told it was!

If you're a fan of friends to lovers stories with humour, heart and heat then look no further! You've got to give this a try... Zach and DeeDee are adorable!

Zach is an all round nice, sweet, and utterly wonderful guy. He has wanted DeeDee pretty much from the moment he met her crazy extroverted self but she's always kept him firmly in the friend zone, refusing to acknowledge to herself how she felt about him because she was always terrified of losing what they had if they took it further.

The book was a wonderful rollercoaster of emotion.
DeeDee and Zach have chemistry and they burned bright! Their story was packed full of life, love, laughter, passion and yearning and I couldn't get enough.

DeeDee surprised me, she wasn't as happy go lucky as we'd been led to believe... DeeDee had issues. She was the perfect example of never judging a book by its cover and while I understood her issues and sympathised with her for them, I still felt annoyed sometimes with how she acted and that's pretty much the only reason One For The Road is 4.5 stars for me instead of 5.
Despite this little niggle, I adored how her feelings for Zach pushed her to get help, to learn to stand on her own so that she would be ready to stand beside him and I loved how Zach respected that, didn't judge her, and waited.
They grew into something special and it made my romance loving heart so happy!
I hope we continue to see snippets of them in future books the way we got to catch up with previous characters in this one.

If friends-to-lovers romances are your thing, you've got to give this a try!

BBH: Quote Your Favourite Author


So, this week's topic was supposed to be quote your favourite author but I'm going a little rogue and sharing a collection of beloved book quotes because I don't really have a favourite author and there are too many beloved quotes to limit the post like that! 😀

The majority of these quotes are from books I've read but there are a couple that I've randomly stumbled across and adored so had to include.

Let me know your favourite in the comments!
(From my list or your own.)

🌻

“Deadlines just aren't real to me until I'm staring one in the face.”
Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

“The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true.”
 White Cat by Holly Black

“I'm starting to understand that you can always make time for the things that matter.”
Mariana Zapata, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” 
Dr. Seuss

“The worst wounds, the deadliest of them, aren't the ones people see on the outside. They're the ones that make us bleed internally.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infamous

“Sometimes people put up walls, not only to keep people out, but also to see who cares enough to tear them down.”
Leisa Rayven, Bad Romeo

“Loss can be like chains holding you in place or a fire pushing you onward. We each choose every day what it will be to us.”
Annette Marie, Unleash the Storm

“Sometimes things change, because there just isn’t any way for them to stay the same.”
Jay Crownover, Jet

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
 J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“A broken heart is still a beating one.”
 Penelope Ward, Stepbrother Dearest

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” 
Dr. Seuss

“People are more difficult to work with than machines. And when you break a person, he can't be fixed.”
 Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

“Love isn’t perfect. It’s hard work and sometimes it’s more effort to be in love than it is to just run away. If you keep looking for perfect, the real thing is going to pass right by you.”

“It's easy to look at people and make quick judgements about them, their present and their past, but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“It was worth a shot, and as the saying around here goes, you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take.”
Annette Marie, Three Mages and a Margarita

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”

And to finish off, a particularly relevant feeling quote!

“All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you'll be quite a lot!” 
Dr. Seuss
