This is a list of the books I’ll be reading and reviewing this month. I never know how many books I will get to read so there might even be more!
The Peasant’s Choice by Charis Bell
Blurb: One small choice can forever change a life.
Wilber is a quiet but loyal orphan with physical and emotional scars. He has chosen to be silent.
Frederick is a naïve but kind prince. He has chosen never to wear his crown.
One shared, tragic past explains both their choices.
Caught in the middle of all their secrets, Amber, a playful adventurer, must make a choice of her own: she must battle social status, questions of conviction and identity, and love to determine who she really is and what she really wants.
My Thoughts: I was contacted by the author to read this book for an honest review. I am excited for this book as I read another book by the same author (Ridiculously Proud: Diary of a Diva) and I absolutely loved it!
Hungry Hill by K. J. Sargeant
Blurb: The derelict farm Hungry Hill has always been viewed as something of a local legend amongst the people in the towns and villages surrounding it. They say it’s got an appetite – hence the name – a spot where unexplainable things happen and people, young girls in particular, go missing. Nothing official has ever been found amiss in the area, but Erin and her boyfriend should have heeded the warnings, as they find themselves at the mercy of the farm’s reclusive owner and his twisted nephew, Dominic.
Meanwhile, Detective Grace Buchanan is haunted by nightmares that feel like memories. Her time on the Edinburgh metropolitan has almost entirely been defined by death, twisted sights that the human mind can’t so easily compartmentalize and rationalise. So, when she’s called in to aid with the disappearance of Erin, and the many others who have vanished around Hungry Hill, she assumes the worst. Still, even those pessimistic preconceptions aren’t enough to prepare her for the true horror lurking in plain sight on that derelict farm.
As Grace attempts to find some semblance of justice in a situation that’s increasingly spiralling out of control and her nightmares become a reality, she finds herself going to extreme measures and warring with the darkness that rages inside her.
My Thoughts: I was contacted by the author to read this book for an honest review. This is obviously a horror, something I don’t really enjoy movie wise but do rather enjoy book wise. I am looking forward to this book especially as it is set in my favourite country – Scotland!
Watchers in the Night by Jenna Black
#1 of The Guardians of the Night Series
They hunt in every major city, hidden by the crowds, shielded by disbelief. They are Killers, and their prey is human.
Not all vampires are Killers. The Guardians of the Night sacrifice the superior physical and psychic strength that comes with feeding on humans to protect them. But the Guardians walk a thin line, for even a single kill could leave them helplessly addicted to murder.
When detective-turned-P.I. Carolyn Mathers was left at the altar, she never once thought her fiancé had been turned into a vampire. Two years later, Gray reappears, bringing murder, mystery, and an unbelievable tale of Guardians, blood-thirsty Killers, and his own transformation with him.
And he’s been accused of murder.
A first-rate P.I., Carolyn is determined to help. Gray won’t allow what he is now to taint her — but Carolyn vows to never let him go again.
But will helping Gray mean becoming a creature of the night?
My Thoughts: I do enjoy vampire books, and I love romance too! I’m getting a J.R Ward vibe from this so I am super excited to read this book. It’s the first of four so I am hoping that I enjoy the 1st enough to read the rest.
