Ruthless Empire
(Royal Elite #6)
by Rina Kent

About the book:

She’s off limits. He has none.

There’s a girl.
Beautiful. Popular. Fake.
And my obsession.
My fall.
Probably my damnation.
Did that stop me? Do I care? No and no.
There’s a line between right and wrong. Moral and immoral.
And then there’s her.
I cross every limit with blood-coated fingers.
She says she hates me.
I say I hate her too as I trap her, own her.
Make her all mine.

Ruthless Empire is part of Royal Elite Series, but could be read on its own. For better understanding of the world, you might want to read the previous books first. This is a mature new adult and contains situations that some readers can find offensive.

Why I love it!

This is the last book in the series and I’m very sad about it…this was the longest book,bu it felt the shortest. Will definitely do a full review soon for this one,so don’t miss that!

He Is Psychometric(you can find my review here)

Lee An (Jin Young) has a special psychometry ability. Whenever he touches someone, he can read that person’s memory. Using his psychometry ability, Lee An wants to take out evil people in the world. Unlike his handsome appearance, he is not smart at all.

Yoon Jae-In (Shin Ye-Eun) is a girl with a scar in her mind. She tries to hide that. Lee An and Yoon Jae-In happen to meet and they struggle to solve cases

What will happen when their worlds collide? A romantic thriller about how these two teenagers love, heal, and support each other through big and small events.

 

Train(you can find my review here)

A hard-hitting detective who fearlessly dives into his work, Seo Do Won is relentless when it comes to bringing criminals to justice. Willing to take on any case, no matter how hard, Do Won has made a name for himself as a man who gets the job done. But when the woman he loves becomes the latest victim of a serial killer, his world completely changes. Literally.
Mysteriously able to move between parallel universes, Do Won now lives in both worlds as a man who must pay for the sins of his father in one, and as a man forced to live a precarious life because of those sins in the other. As if the duality of his life wasn’t hard enough to deal with, he soon learns that his deceased love may be gone in one world, but she’s very much alive in the other. Vowing to track down her killer in one universe, while simultaneously trying to protect her in the other, Do Won is quick to acknowledge this is not something he can do alone. Seeking the help of his colleagues in both universes, Do Won asks Han Seo Kyung, an honest, yet reserved prosecutor with a big heart in one world, and a cold and emotionless detective in the other, to help him out. Together with Lee Jung Min, a tenacious member of the scientific investigation unit, they’ll do whatever it takes to track down the killer in one world and protect his love in the other. But will their efforts in either universe really be enough?

June Wrap Up(2020)

Hello!How are you? Hope you are doing well?How was your June? Well…mine was crazy,I started a youtube channel and was part of#CreepyJuneReads project on Instagram and I did a 24hreadathon with the Readathon Babes! And it was amazing. Basically I tried really hard to be productive. So let’s talk books now!

Mr. Cavendish, I Presume

(Two Dukes of Wyndham #2)

                                                                          by Julia Quinn

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
for blog bookAmelia Willoughby has been engaged to the Duke of Wyndham for as long as she can remember. Literally. A mere six months old when the contracts were signed, she has spent the rest of her life waiting. And waiting. And waiting … for Thomas Cavendish, the oh-so-lofty duke, to finally get around to marrying her. But as she watches him from afar, she has a sneaking suspicion that he never thinks about her at all …It’s true. He doesn’t. Thomas rather likes having a fiancee — all the better to keep the husband-hunters at bay — and he does intend to marry her … eventually. But just when he begins to realize that his bride might be something more than convenient, Thomas’s world is rocked by the arrival of his long-lost cousin, who may or may not be the true Duke of Wyndham. And if Thomas is not the duke, then he’s not engaged to Amelia. Which is the cruelest joke of all, because this arrogant and illustrious duke has made the mistake of falling in love … with his own fiancee!

A book by Julia Quinn I haven’t read?! Is this real?Yes,those were my exact thoughts when I found this one and I can say…I enjoyed it (logical…it’s Julia Quinn…my autobuy author). And I love it,it’s such a good book and the story was sweet. Overall you NEED to check it out!

What to Do with a Duke

(Spinster House #1)

by Sally MacKenzie

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

Welcome to the charming, fatefully named village of Loves Bridge, where a woman22891422 destined for spinsterhood can live a life of her own choosing—or fall unexpectedly, madly in love…

Miss Isabelle Catherine Hutting would rather be lounging in the library than circling the ballroom in search of a husband any day. So when Cat hears that the town’s infamous Spinster House is open for a new resident, she jumps at the chance to put all this marriage business behind her. But first she must make arrangements with her prospective landlord, Marcus, the Duke of Hart—the most handsome man she’s ever seen, and the only man who’s ever impressed her in the least…

With her wit, independent spirit, and not least of all her beauty, Marcus can’t help but be stirred by Cat. It’s terribly unfortunate he’s not looking to marry, given the centuries-old curse that left his family with the Spinster House to begin with. No duke shall live to see his heir’s birth. But is there a chance the curse could be broken—in true fairy-tale fashion—by an act of true love? The race to Happily Ever After is about to begin…

Mmmmkay ,I really liked it (and the cover is pretty 😍)The writing style was good ,loved Cat’s siblings and this mystical “curse” was a very intriguing part of the story. Overall a great historical romance to read by the pool💕

3,9/5 stars .


A Good Day to Marry a Duke

(Sin and Sensibility #1)

by Betina Krahn

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

34568964._SY475_Daisy Bumgarten isn’t thrilled to be trying to catch a duke’s attention while dressed like a flower pot caught in a swarm of butterflies. But, after all, when in Rome (or in this case London society)… Since her decidedly disastrous debut among New York’s privileged set, the sassy Nevada spitfire’s last chance to “marry well” lies across the pond, here in England. If she must restrain her free spirit, not to mention her rib cage, so be it. She knows she owes it to her three younger sisters to succeed.

Now, under a countess’s tutelage, Daisy appears the perfect duchess-in-training…Until notorious ladies’ man Lord Ashton Graham, a distraction of the most dangerous kind, glimpses her mischievous smile and feisty nature—and attempts to unmask her motives. Daisy has encountered snakes on the range, but one dressed to the nines in an English drawing room is positively unnerving—and maddeningly seductive. When a veiled plot emerges to show up Daisy as unworthy of the aristocracy, will Ashton be her worst detractor? Or the nobleman she needs most of all?

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

It was a cute story! I loved Daisy and Ashton,the chemistry was there and that’s amazing. Great writing style,interesting story…Overall I would recommend!

The Bookish Boyfriends series by Tiffany Schmidt

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

Boys are so much better in books. At least according to Merrilee Campbell, fifteen, who thinks real-life chivalry is dead and there’d be nothing more romantic than having a guy woo her like the heroes in classic stories. Then she, her best friend, Eliza, and her younger sister, Rory, transfer to Reginald R. Hero Prep—where all the boys look like they’ve stepped off the pages of a romance novel. Merri can hardly walk across the quad without running into someone who reminds her of Romeo.

When the brooding and complicated Monroe Stratford scales Merri’s trellis in an effort to make her his, she thinks she might be Juliet incarnate. But as she works her way through her literature curriculum under the guidance of an enigmatic teacher, Merri’s tale begins to unfold in ways she couldn’t have imagined. Merri soon realizes that only she is in charge of her story. And it is a truth universally acknowledged that first impressions can be deceiving . . .

Omg,Those are amazing! My new favorite book series!!!If you are looking for something sweet and nice you will love this one. Will definetly do a review for each of the books.

 

Hope you enjoy it and definitely tell me what you think!

New Year Outfit Ideas(Aliexpress Inspired)

Photo by Lauren Fleischmann on Unsplash

Hello, My Darlings nad Hey If You are new here!It’s so nice to see you on my blog. Can you imagine next month is 2020?! This year was a rollercoaster of emotions, the first time my job made me have panic attacks, I had lots of personal growth and my heart was broken more than once . In simple words, 2019 was not what I imagined, but I’m thankful that those things happened because now I can clearly see where I want to be in the future. I really hope 2020 will bring many blessings! But now let’s talk about fashion. For me, the New Year celebrations are more relaxed than most of my friends, so my #OOTD’s are not as “fancy”.I hope you will find the Inspiration for the “ideal” outfit for the New Year!
