Daisy Darker

This is the first audiobook I ever listened to, I don’t know if I’ll go back for another. On Daisy Darker? I don’t know if I’ll come back for more books from this author.

Author: Alice Feeney

Genres: Suspense, Drama, Thriller (?)

⭐⭐⭐

I give credit when and where credit is due.

Hello, dearies! 🐚

A new month is here, and only now am I publishing a new one, but the days just blend together lately.

Daisy Darker was my first audiobook, and half of the time I thought, I could be reading this instead of listening and it’ll be faster and perhaps a bit more interesting. But that is not part of the review, just a thought about audiobooks.

The Nothing Man: Review?

“Fiction only really worked if it was built like a lattice through which you were repeatedly offered glimpses of absolute truth.”

Author: Catherine Ryan Howard 

Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Adult, Suspense

Hello, dearies! 📝

Here’s another I wouldn’t have picked up from a shelf on a trip to the bookstore, yet I read it.

The Nothing Man is one of those books that didn’t have my full attention until about sixty per cent of it was already behind me.

I could have left it on the side, I could have stopped reading long before that half mark, but I pushed on, and I am sorry for those who are fans, but it didn’t amount to much at the end.

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

“The people you love weren’t algebra: to be calculated, subtracted, or held at arm’s length across a decimal point.”

Book: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

Author: Holly Jackson

Genre: Mystery, Young Adult, Thriller

Hello, dearies!

Here’s another that I didn’t think I would create or read, but life has its turns and here we are.

I enjoyed Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, even when the YA part got a little exaggerated and I was fighting with the main character out aloud alone in my room.

Horimiya

‘Kyoko Hori is a bright and popular high school student, in contrast to her classmate Izumi Miyamura, a gloomy and seemingly nerdy boy.’

by Hero, Daisuke Hagiwara (Artist)

A lovely one.

One of the first reviews I start with a one-liner I know already. 😄

Hello, dearies! 💖

Horimiya is one of those that I first watched the anime then read the manga, but it’s alright, you can do it like that as well, there’s not much difference in the story, except for the ending of the Manga, that’s a plus for us readers.

I’ll jump right in.

New eBook Summer/Winter Sale on Smashwords 2022

Books Deals a plenty at Smashwords for this July 2022.

Hello, dearies! ⛱️❄️

Hope your weekend was great! I have been a little off the grid I know, but it’s been a difficult couple of months.

Now, I wanted to share Smashwords’ newest sales, this time for Summer/Winter time. The Sale Dates: July 1 – July 31, 2022. So it’s almost done, but it doesn’t mean you cannot find great deals still.

You’re probably thinking that I work for Smashwords or something, but that’s not it, I just like how they always have sales, and you can self-publish your books with a few instructions, which I have done.

So, what sort of sales or deals are we talking about? Well, you can get books that are 25% off, 50% off, 75% off, or for FREE. Yes, #freebooks, I know! But supporting authors can also come in the form of getting one of those books that are 75% off at least and will still be a great deal, something to consider. 🙂

I don’t have a list of book suggestions this time, but you can find all eBooks on sale here.

2022 smashwords deals july

Also, if you’re an aspiring writer and would like to try your hand at self-publishing but don’t know how Smashwords work, you can ask me for sure.

Thank you for stopping by today and reading this quick one, I know it’s my usual one, but I wanted to mention the deals for this Summer/Winter sale.

That’s it for now, don’t forget to visit my social media as well or follow the blog for more. 💞

Happy Reading! 📚

Verity

“Most people come to New York to be discovered. The rest of us come here to hide.”

Author: Colleen Hoover

Genres: Thriller, Romance, Mystery, Dark, Adult

Hello, dearies! 📖

First off, let me tell you a bit of what you’ll encounter in this book review for Verity because I feel like some warnings are necessary.

I gave it 4 stars to not give it 3 because that would affect the author, and I’m sure many love this book. And It’s not that I didn’t like it perse, but I didn’t enjoy it fully either. I gave it 4 out of 5 because it was well-written, and I thought, yes, I could read other books by this author.

But this review is honest, as honest it can be without giving away the ending. I’m warning now and will be warning you further ahead that there are spoilers in this review, many if you don’t want to know anything before reading Verity like me. I read it without even looking at the genres of it.

Let’s begin. 📝

Hello, dearies!

It took me some time to write this one, but here I am. As promised.

I will give you the randomness of my thoughts as they came when I was reading Finale, so bear with me for a bit. You might enjoy the quotes and snippets from the book.

Fair warning, this post is full of spoilers if you haven’t read any of the books in the Hush Hush Saga, including this one, book 4, Finale.

For more insight, you might want to first read my revamped review of Books 1 – 3.

Hush Hush Book 1-3 Revamped Review

‘“Since we’re keeping it primal, you smell good,” he observed. He moved closer, making me acutely aware of his size, the rise and fall of his chest, the warm burn of his skin on mine. Electricity tingled along my scalp, and I shuddered with pleasure.’

Books: Hush Hush, Crescendo, Silence

Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance, Supernatural, Angels, Urban Fantasy

Hi, dearies! This one is different from the last one because my perspective has broadened.

Years ago, I read this cool book by Becca Fitzpatrick and then went on to the whole Saga and loved it. That book was Hush Hush. 😄📖

HP and the Order of the Phoenix

“You do care,” said Dumbledore. He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached. “You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.”
