A Faint Cold Fear – Karin Slaughter

A Faint Cold Fear – Karin Slaughter

This is the third book in the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter. We catch up with Sara, Jeffrey and Lena and of course there’s a death in town.

I’ve read this book before and loved it back then, as much as now. It’s not the best in the series, but that in no way detracts from the awesomeness of Sara and Jeffrey’s case solving skills. Karin writes this like the rest of her books, with suspense, gore and mystery. It isn’t for the faint hearted – like nearly all her books – they are graphic and bloody. 🙂

Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas

“The book was falling… I was reaching for it, and …. your lips were in the way” – I loved this line, it made me laugh so much.

Ah the joy of buying random books from Amazon for my Kindle. I saw this book initially on Goodreads and thought ah well, give it a go. I downloaded the sample chapter and had to download the rest of the book immediately. Now when I say I had to download immediately it was more to do with me being intrigued as to what was actually going on.

First Impressions – Drunk Elephant – The Littles Collection

Hey Everyone, now I am sure you have heard about Drunk Elephant as it is very much the hot new brand going round on Instagram skincare posts – which I spend far too much of my time looking at.

Very briefly,as I am sure you have heard it all before, Drunk Elephant is the brainchild of Tiffany Masterton who as she says ” I wanted something that didn’t exist…. So I made it myself.” Drunk Elephant was originally only available in the United States so while it was something that I would see Americans ,or those lucky enough to have been over the pond, posting on Instagram it wasn’t something I could get my hands on so I wasn’t that fussed about it. Of course that is until it launched over here at Space NK and Cult Beauty late last year and all us Brits went slightly bonkers for it. DE is free from what Masterson calls the ‘suspicious six’ which are essential oils, fragrance/ dyes, silicones, sodium laurel sulphate, drying alcohols and chemical screens, as someone with sensitive skin, but that doesn’t know what the cause of the sensitivity is, I am loving how free these products are of the most common irritants. By the way the company is called Drunk Elephant as one of its hero ingredients, Marula, is known to have an intoxicating effect on elephants if they consume it, which always makes me smile an its great un to imagine tipsy elephants.

Complexion Perfection by Kate Somerville

Two of my favourite things in one: It’s a book… on beauty!

I discovered Kate Somerville last summer when her products launched in the UK on Cult Beauty and around the same time she was a guest on the Oraccle of Skincare, Caroline Hirons YouTube channel, and it was in this video that Kate’s book ‘Complexion Perfection’ was mentioned. As someone who has always had a soft spot for fashion/ beauty/ lifestyle books I knew that I had to give this a go.
