Wrap Up: September 2018

Still in a blog-writing slump – but I’m drowning in unboxing photos so I’m going to have to figure something out.  And all the books I’ve bought since June need hauling – but I have a feeling that’s not going to happen… I’ve been really into urban fantasy this month – if anyone has any recommendations (I’ve read quite a few popular ones but I’d still love to hear some suggestions) leave them in the comments section.  Also, can we just give me a round of applause for reading 19 books this month?!

What is it about a tough alpha male? Gah, swoon.

Fire Touched (#9 Mercy Thompson) by Patricia Briggs – ★★★ – Adult Urban Paranormal Fantasy 

A Strange Hymn (#2 The Bargainer) by Laura Thalassa – ★★★★ – New Adult Fantasy Paranormal Romance 

Escaping from Houdini (#3 Stalking Jack the Ripper) by Kerri Maniscalco – ★★★ – Young Adult Historical Mystery

I’m not going to lie – I understand the logic and reasoning on why the things I didn’t like happened. But I am a hopeless romantic, and I like things in neat bundles despite how that doesn’t reflect reality. I did thoroughly enjoy the story and despite how I rated it initially I’ll probably bump it up a bit later when I’m feeling less bitter about how things played out. I will say this; if I don’t get a ‘Cressworth’ wedding by the end of the final book I’ll be incredibly disappointed (along with literally every other reader of this incredible series). Seriously Kerri, amazing job. The research that went into this (and the other two novels) is extraordinary and we’re so lucky that you decided to share Audrey Rose and Thomas’ story with us!

Also, I have three physical copies ordered (that have not yet arrived; the woes of living in Australia) but I caved and bought the ebook from Amazon. I simply needed to know what would happen next to our wonderful protagonist and her partner in crime-solving.

Awakened (#1 Vampire Awakenings) by Brenda K. Davis – ★★★ – YA/NA Paranormal Romance

Written in Red (#1 The Others) by Anne Bishop – ★★★★ – New Adult/Adult Urban Fantasy

Apparently, I read this in 2014, but I remember nothing but Meg and what she is.

However, my rating of four stars stands true 4 years later.

Murder of Crows (#2 The Others) by Anne Bishop – ★★★★ – New Adult/Adult Urban Fantasy

Vision in Silver (#3 The Others) by Anne Bishop – ★★★★ – New Adult/Adult Urban Fantasy

I skim read a small chunk, not sure why, I might have been tired – but I still loved the story!

Marked in Flesh (#4 The Others) by Anne Bishop – ★★★★ – New Adult/Adult Urban Fantasy

Etched in Bone (#5 The Others) by Anne Bishop – ★★★★★ – New Adult/Adult Urban Fantasy

Can I just say how incredibly disappointed I am that the next two novels in this series aren’t about Meg and Simon – like no, now we’ve got to the good stuff, give me more! But I loved this story, I love these characters so thank you Miss Bishop for writing it! I know certain characters can run their course but I hope we see more of Meg and Simon in the future (I’m sure they’re somehow included in the next two instalments but I’m still not sure I want to pick those up).
