Everless (Everless #1) by Sara Holland – book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

32320661In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself

I know better than to be afraid of stories


The idea takes hold of me, somewhere deep down, and I know that as soon as I can, I will have to find my own way to the town out of time.


The Queen’s voice is deep and resonant—like a physical thing, it takes up space in the room.

Murder Offstage(Posie Parker Mystery #1)

by L.B. Hathaway

Why I recommend it- It’s a nice cozy mystery set in 1920 London,with a strong female protagonist. One of my favorites definitely check it out!

23001667

About the book :Like your mysteries cozy and set during the Golden Age of Crime? This is the first book in the Posie Parker mysteries, although this novel can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story in its own right. Set in London in 1921, ‘Murder Offstage’ is full of intrigue and red herrings. This is a classic murder mystery which will appeal to fans of Agatha Christie and Downton Abbey.

When Posie Parker’s childhood friend is robbed of a priceless jewel and becomes a suspect in a cold-blooded murder case, budding detective Posie vows she will clear his name. Aided by her seriously gorgeous assistant Len, Posie soon realizes things are not quite as they seem, and the darkly-glamorous world of London’s theatre and glittering nightclubs prove far more dangerous than she ever could have imagined.

Just who exactly is the dangerous Lucky Lucy Gibson? And who is it she has killed in the lobby of the Ritz Hotel? And more importantly, what on earth has happened to Mr Minks, the much-loved office cat?

Spelled(The Storymakers #1)

by Betsy Schow

Why I recommend it- It’s HILARIOUS! Like you will cry laughing.

25718299._SY475_

 

About the book :Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.
Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks—like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the brooding prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.

Talk about unhappily ever after.
Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called “Kansas.” Now it’s up to Dorthea and her pixed off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse… before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.

Come Hell or Highball(Discreet Retrieval Agency #1)

Why I recommend it – Amazing mystery set in the 1920s, with fun twists and turns.

23848232

About the book :In this Prohibition-era caper, society matron Lola Woodby agrees to recover a stolen film reel for its rightful owner, but before she can retrieve it, the man in possession of the reel is killed

30-year-old society matron Lola Woodby has survived her loveless marriage with an unholy mixture of highballs, detective novels, and chocolate layer cake, until her husband dies suddenly, leaving her his fortune…or so Lola thought. As it turns out, all she inherits from Alfie is a big pile of debt. Pretty soon, Lola and her stalwart Swedish cook, Berta, are reduced to hiding out in the secret love nest Alfie kept in New York City. But when rent comes due, Lola and Berta have no choice but to accept an offer made by one of Alfie’s girls-on-the-side at his funeral: in exchange for a handsome sum of money, the girl wants Lola to retrieve a mysterious reel of film for her. It sounds like an easy enough way to earn the rent money. But Lola and Berta realize they’re in way over their heads when, before they can retrieve it, the man currently in possession of the film reel is murdered, and the reel disappears. On a quest to retrieve the reel and solve the murder before the killer comes after them next, Lola and Berta find themselves navigating one wacky situation after another in high style and low company.

Charming, witty, often laugh-out-loud funny, Maia Chance’s Come Hell or Highball introduces a sparkling new voice in crime fiction.

The Duke and I(Bridgertons #1)

by Julia Quinn

Why I recommend it- I love the Bridgerton series soooo much, it’s such a beautiful story of love and family. It’s definitely one of my favorites!

25322247._SY475_

About the book :Can there be any greater challenge to London’s Ambitious Mamas than an unmarried duke?

—Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers, April 1813

By all accounts, Simon Basset is on the verge of proposing to his best friend’s sister, the lovely—and almost-on-the-shelf—Daphne Bridgerton. But the two of them know the truth—it’s all an elaborate plan to keep Simon free from marriage-minded society mothers. And as for Daphne, surely she will attract some worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable.

But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, it’s hard to remember that their courtship is a complete sham. Maybe it’s his devilish smile, certainly it’s the way his eyes seem to burn every time he looks at her… but somehow Daphne is falling for the dashing duke… for real! And now she must do the impossible and convince the handsome rogue that their clever little scheme deserves a slight alteration, and that nothing makes quite as much sense as falling in love…

Wicked Court

by May Sage

Why I recommend it – First of all the cover is gorgeous, Second the story is an epic fantasy…with fea. I mean what can be better?!

52533691._SX318_SY475_

About the book :For as long as I can remember, I’ve had to hide who I am. What I am.
They had me play the sheep. They had me blend in. They marked me and sealed my power.
Now I have my freedom, because everyone who’s ever wanted me confined is dead.
I could have changed it. I could have altered the course of fate. I could have saved the unseelie queen.
I didn’t.

Vlari has always known her place: as far away from court as the unseelie queen can send her.
The youngest royal, born in an impoverished household, she endeavoured to earn her keep as an assistant. Her one aspiration? Avoiding the popular crowd of gentry fae who prey on the weak, and their dark, enticing leader, the mysterious Drusk.
Until the world implodes around her.
She has two options. Fade with rest of the unseelie kingdom, or protect a court that has never cared for her.

The Look of Love(The Sullivans #1)

by Bella Andre

Why I recommend it – If you love adult romance with happy ever after this is for you. Gives you all the cute feels!

11757975

 

About the book:Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she’s convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he’s home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is–until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love–and protect–her, but will she let him?

Chloe vows never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Only, with every loving look Chase gives her–and every sinfully sweet caress–as the attraction between them sparks and sizzles, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the only exception. And although Chase didn’t realize his life was going to change forever in an instant, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether…for Chloe’s heart. (love story, contemporary romance, alpha males, heroes, sexy romance, bad boys, falling in love)

October Favorites (2019 edition)

Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash

Hello My Darlings and Hey if you are new here! It’s so nice to see you on my blog! Let’s talk about October. I did Blogtober in October, to be honest, I did enjoy doing it, but Blogmas did bring me more joy last year. I think it’s because I do love Christmas(logic,it’s the most wonderful time of the year) much more than the fall season (and Fall holidays) and that’s okay. But it’s finally November and that means lots of Christmas related posts from me(So get ready for that). Sadly I can’t do Blogmas this year(because of work) but that doesn’t mean we are not going to get in Christmas mood on this blog! Starting with a new “signature” card(holiday-inspired). But now let’s dive into October Favorites!

Tabasco Chipotle Hot Sauce 

I’m obsessed with this(like eating a second bottle kind of obsessed)! It’s so good with almost anything, not too hot, has an amazing smokey taste. Totally obsessed! But keep in mind it is a hot sauce if you can’t eat spicy food then it’s not for you.
