Say you’re sorry is the twenty-second book in the romantic suspense series by Karen Rose, however, it is the first in the new Sacramento series.
I am always super excited when a KR book comes out. She is one of my top authors, and reading her books is just such a comfort blanket – even with all the gore and violence, it still makes me feel … cosy. 🙂
First of all, thank you to Raven Books for sending me this beautiful hardback copy of The Flower Girls to read and review. It was so wonderfully packaged when I received it, I almost didn’t want to open it. But I was so glad I did, this was a FANTASTIC read!
Cassandra Clare does it again!!! Let’s be honest I didn’t doubt that she would deliver the goods with Queen Of Air And Darkness, but at nearly 900 pages long I wondered how she was going to finish off The Dark Artifices series without going off on a tangent.
At the end of Lord Of Shadows the two main points that needed to be covered is that our hero’s needed to take down Annabelle after she killed the Inquisitor (RIP Robert Lightwood) and Livvy Blackthorn (RIP – also, why don’t you just take my heart out now C.C?) and sort out that pesky Parabati bond. Oh and figure out what was going on with Jace and Clary. I know that’s a very brief summary of it but it’s the highlights that I remembered and in hindsight I really should have found the time to re-read both Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows. Well, Queen of Air and Darkness does not disappoint in the least, there are multiple plot twists and surprises right up until literally the last page which had me squealing with joy and excitement in anticipation of how epic the next book will be.
So this one has been on my Netflix queue for a while but as with all book to tv/film adaptations I prefer to read the book first, I wasn’t supposed to be buying books while in Waterstones the other week but hey ho I was in a bookstore so it was inevitable. While I was in the YA section staring longingly at the hard cover edition of Kingdom of Ash (I already have a normal paperback edition and a signed paperback edition – I CAN NOT buy the hardback edition as well) I saw a trio of teenage girls browsing the books when one of them spotted ‘The Kissing Booth’ and they all fangirled in a ‘OMG, I didn’t know it was a book’ kinda way, so clearly they had seen the movie and their reaction to it was enough for me to pick it up and head to the till (along with a copy of Dumplin’ – my next book to film read).Read More »
Every so often we like to do a book swap. Kate likes YA mainly and Becca enjoys thrillers. It’s good to try something different, so we came up with a book swap where we each give each other one of our reads and see what the other thinks.
This month we did ‘The Single Girl’s To Do List’ by Lindsey Kelk (being Kate’s chic lit choice) and ‘Pretty Girls’ by Karin Slaughter (being Becca’s thriller choice). Here’s what we each thought of our respective swaps!Read More »
