Authors I’d Give a Second Chance!

Hey guys! Today I am going to talk about authors who I’d like to give a second chance! I saw this on sarawithoutah‘s BookTube so long ago and I have always wanted to do it. I finally got around to it and I’m very excited to share my list with you! Enjoy!

Sasha Alsberg: So I am a big fan of Sasha but sadly her debut, Zenith, wasn’t for me. I was really disappointed with it as it felt very messy and haphazardly thrown together. Things weren’t explained very well and I was left scratching my head for the majority of it. However, she is a growing author and can improve her writing. I think she could be a really great author if she takes her time with her books and I’d love to still be able to support her by buying them. I think Zenith came out so messy because everything was massively rushed; however her other books don’t seem to be going down the same path which is good! I am interested in reading Project Red because that seems like one I haven’t read before. She seems to be taking her time with it and from the sneak peeks she has shown us, it looks really interesting.

October 2018 Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I fully embraced this spooky month by reading some very creepy crime thriller/murder mystery books! Admittedly, I completely failed by October TBR as I just ended up not being in the mood for the majority of them. Instead I picked these ones out and I’m really glad I read them as I enjoyed nearly every one! Quite a successful month for me! Here’s what I read:

Strange Ink by Gary Kemble: I really enjoyed this book and thought it was an appropriate read for Halloween, especially because it has freaking ghosts! It was really intense at times and I loved how there was just so much crammed into this one book. It was very fast paced and corruption was right at the core of this story. I can’t believe it is the author’s debut novel! I look forward to seeing what he writes in the future!

Vanished by Tim Weaver: Got another book ticked off the David Raker thriller series! I’m really enjoying these books, they are incredibly action packed and the plots are really dark and creepy! The third book did not disappoint and that ending! It was intense and had such an insane cliffhanger!

October 2018 Book Haul!

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well and are having a great month! I’m sorry for my lack of posting last week, I was actually ill halfway through the week so I didn’t have time to sit down and write anything. But today I am bringing you my October book haul! Sadly I bought a lot again this month but I have already read two of the books I purchased so that’s something! Here’s what I bought:

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton: I popped in Waterstones for a browse which in hindsight I should have known was a big mistake because I saw this in buy one get one half price. I had no intention of buying it but the staff member I was talking to said it was an absolutely mind-blowing book and that I should read it. I was immediately sold because he also said it was one of his favourite books! I read it last week so my thoughts will be in my wrap up post!

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay: The staff member was kind enough to include a book that wasn’t in the deal and he actually recommended the first book in the Dexter series. I didn’t even know what this series was about despite it having a TV show but he said he really loved this series, so I decide to purchase this as well! Again, I read this last week and will include my thoughts in my wrap up post!
