Currently Reading

Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners, #3)

I got a little bit swept up with the whole Dracula thing at the end of last week, the new BBC adaptation was fantastic, so decided I really had to find a vampire book to read. And, when I think vampire book I think Jeaniene Frost (her Night Huntress and Night Prince series’ are a lot of fun). It therefore seemed a good time to start her latest book Shades of Wicked. It’s set in the same world as the other series’ and there’s quite a bit of character overlap so I am loving it. The main character Ian isn’t necessarily the easiest to like but I’m definitely warming up to him 😉

After some swithering I decided to start the third book in the Diviners series,  Before the Devil Breaks You, on audio and I think this was the right decision as I’m very much enjoying it. I’m loving that all of the main characters have come together even if they do all have their own stories going on. My only gripe is how light Evie and Sam’s roles have been so far as they are my favourite characters.


Recently Finished

Bitter Falls (Stillhouse Lake #4)Just a Boyfriend (End of the Line #2)

I’ve been playing catch up with my blog posts over the last week which has kind of eaten into my reading time but I have managed to finish two books. The first Bitter Falls by Rachel Caine was one of my most anticipated reads. I’m a big fan of Caine’s writing and have been loving the Stillhouse Lake series. However while this started well I felt like it lost it’s way around the middle and started to fall into the same routine as the previous books in the series. I’ll no doubt still read book 5 when it comes out but I’m hoping Caine will change things up.

The second book finished was new adult romance Just a Boyfriend by Sariah Wilson. Wilson is a new discovery for me and I’ve been really enjoying her writing. I wouldn’t necessarily say they’re original or that they particularly wow me but I do find them addictive reading and a great way to spend a lazy afternoon reading. This one is a sort of stepbrother romance, I say sort of because technically the couple at the center of the story were together before their parents even met. There are a few deeper themes running through the story, cancer, drug use and depression but overall it’s an easy read.


Reading Next

Work is going to be hellish over the next two to three weeks, January is always bad, so it’s likely I’ll be reading mostly romcoms as I doubt I’ll have a lot of focus. I’m leaning towards the following:-

The Bromance Book Club (Bromance Book Club, #1)Fix Her Up (Hot & Hammered, #1)Just As You Are

Have you read any of the books on my list this week? Any others you’d recommend? As always please feel free to leave comments and links below.

Happy Reading ❤

  1. I have to get back to Before the Devil Breaks You… King of Crows is due out pretty soon, isn’t it? I have a feeling at some point I left it playing because when I put it on the other night I didn’t know what was going on, so I have to figure that out.

    I’m worried I’m going to end up a bit disappointed with Bitter Falls but I have it there to read so I’ll be getting to it soon.

    • I think it’s early Feb for King of Crows, I’ve preordered on audible. I’ve done that before although my usual problem is that audios have a tendency to started playing by themselves and if my phone is in my bag I don’t always notice. I’ve given up on a few audios because I’ve gotten lost and can’t find my place.

      Bitter Falls is an enjoyable read, it’s certainly better than the previous one. It just wasn’t quite what I was hoping for.

    • You should definitely read Killman Creek, that book is absolutely brilliant and brings the story in the first book to a bit of a close. Part of me wonders if it should’ve been left as a duology

  2. I really need to read The Diviners. I’ve heard such good things about the series! I need to read the Stillhouse Lake series, too. Sorry to hear that Bitter Falls didn’t quite live up to your expectations, though. Your upcoming reads sound really cute, and I hope they go over better with you!

    Here’s my WWW post.

    • The Diviners is fantastic, a little on the slow side in places but I just love the characters. I’ve been listening to the series on and off for over a year now so I’m going to be lost when I finally finish it.

      Bitter Falls was still good and I definitely recommend the first couple of books. They are brilliant.

      Thank you. I hope so too.

  3. I scored an ARC of Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey. I can’t wait to go back and read Fix Her Up. I’ve heard wonderful things about it.
    Happy reading!

  4. I watched the first Dracula episode yesterday, although I still need to catch up with the other two! It’s made me want to reread the book haha. You’ve reminded me I really need to pick up the The Diviners sequels some time soon… I saw the fourth book on Netgalley today too. Fix Her Up sounds like a cute read! Have a wonderful week and happy reading. xx

    • I’m not sure if I ever read the book. I do have the audio as part of a “Monsters” collection but couldn’t get through Frankenstein so never got to it

      I spied it on Netgalley, requested and got approved so really need to get book 3 finished as soon as. Will be weird switching to an ereader version. I’ve gotten so used to the narrator I’m probably still gonna hear her voice as I’m reading

      Thanks, you too x
