So I read a fair bit this month and some pretty good books too. I kind of got a bit obsessed with a series I started reading last month. I wasn’t very impressed with it then but after reading the second book this month I was hooked!
Tempt the Stars by Karen Chance
The 6th book in the Cassie Palmer series. Love it though not as much as previous books. Maybe 4.5 stars. I felt like some of the action scenes were a bit lengthy and the lack of Pritkin annoyed me 😉 Love the introduction of witches and the Pythian court.
A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuire
I read the first book in the October Daye series in February and, honestly, couldn’t see why everyone loves the series so much. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator pronounced Irish words wrong and has a terrible Irish accent. At least I think it’s meant to be Irish… Anyway, I was much more impressed with the next book and every book that followed. The narrator is still pronouncing Tuath de Dannan wrong and her Irish accent is still useless but I don’t care. The series follows October Daye, a fae halfling who has returned to fae society after a 15-year gap as a mystery-solving knight.
Tall, Dark & Hungry by Lynsay Sands
A total fluffy read. Great for reading after something heavy or when you’re feeling stressed out. It’s a straightforward vampire romance.
Asking For It by Louise O’Neill
Amazing book. So haunting. I have a feeling it will stay with me forever. You can read my full review of this book here.
