Dark Fire by Christine Feehan.⁠ ⁠ Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⁠ ⁠ Audiobook: 11 hours 45 minutes⁠ ⁠ This is one of my favorite book in the Dark series. This was my first jump into the paranormal world and I have been hooked ever since.⁠ ⁠ Since I have read this book many times, I decided to listen to it this time. My library and Scribd both had the audiobook and the narrator had done a fantastic job. Even though I knew what was going to happen next, I still loved listening to it.⁠ ⁠ Darius is a Carpathian and the protector of a music troupe and Tempest joined them as a mechanic. Darius has lost his ability to feel and to see in colors for a long time but she is holding on for the sake of his sister and the minute he sees Tempest he knew that he has found his lifemate. Tempest has always been alone and the only comfort she has is her ability to talk to animals. But she is attracted to Darius and she is scared of what he is.⁠ ⁠ #amreading #booklovers #bibliophile #bookaddict #ebooks #fiction #nonfiction #ireadeverywhere #whattoread #bookworld #booknerd #bookstagram #goodreads #library #librarybook #bookworm #bookobsessed #readingtime #currentlyreading #igreads #darkfire #christinefeehan #paranormal #fantasy

"But now that I'd found them, I had no idea what to do." . Rating- 4.4/5 Book Bingo Crosses- ✓More than 300 pages ✓Cover in favourite colour ✓Recommended by a friend ✓Passed the Bechdel test . Picked it up in a whim without expecting a lot from it. The cover is pretty and that was a plus. Even with your recommendation @medha_belgaumkar I did not go in with a lot of expectations. The book kind of caught of caught me off guard and I actually ended up loving it. The concept is very new and fresh, for me atleast. The development is good. Characters are rounded and portrayed with all their aspects. The climax maybe could have been a tad bit better. Overall, it is a refreshing pick. A proper review coming up soon on blog.

Finished Maestra by L.S. Hilton yesterday. I can’t properly gouge how much I enjoyed it, but I can tell you with certainty that it was an intense and not easily forgotten novel. Who knows, maybe I’ll pick up the sequel in a couple months. Or maybe I’ll take a shot at American Pyscho. Time will tell, lol • Synopsis (via back of book): “A put-upon assistant at a prestigious London art house, Judith Rashleigh is well-educated, well-groomed, and impeccably behaved—keeping the darker desires she indulged on night off as her own little secret. But when Judith uncovers a dangerous heist, her life is shattered and she’s forced to run. Armed with just her wits and a talent for self-invention, she makes her way from the French Riviera to Geneva, Rome, and the nightclubs of Paris, determined to take back what is rightfully hers.” - - - TAGS: #bookstagram #book #booklover #booknerd #books #novel #fiction #bookstagrammer #bookworm

She is called full-option and so she thinks of herself. Her boyfriend if large too, but Emem always wished she had a lanky man for herself, still, love has her perpetually looped in its web, blindfolded. Jazzy is the love Emem cannot trade for the six packs of this world, not even Rudy, not Kemen not her other crush. ‘’Basket is a mere crush, besides, he is married’’ Emem would sometimes snap jumping onto anything at sight, and her chest will make a sound she hates to love. This particular morning, the popopfop…popopfop…popopfop sound her chest usually make was louder than ever. Wofai and Malie even joked that she was missing Jazzy beyond words. . Emem is not oblivious of the popopfop sound, so, she does not deny it. Has never. In Taoma’s tone, Emem smiled ‘’Come off it, Wofai, I think am simply panting’’ From her smile you could tell she wanted to say… ‘my ---- is simply panting’. After all, she has teased her friends before. . ‘’But, where is the holiday’’? She exclaimed crossing her two hands over her chest and shoulders ‘’where is the holiday’’? The morning would have probably crawled by if the Federal Government had not pronounced the Easter holiday, a period that Emem would not spend with Jazzy. This year held so many plans for Emem and Jazzy, they had planned a trip to Ephesus in Turkey and she was sure her boo will pop the YES question at one of the thrones in Ephesus or perhaps at the Gate of Augustus. But Corona Virus had it cocked otherwise, Covid-19 denied both her presence in Lagos and Ephesus. . ‘’Where’s the holiday, I am not feeling it’’ Emem went huffy, throwing pillows at her massive LG Smart Android Television. . Until now, Wofai had not realized that she too had made holiday plans for the Easter period, because she had been indoors since the week before Jaru’s... . #entertainment #creative #creativewriting #fiction #creativewriter #copywriter #sexy #funny

My outreach continues, beyond #fivefreepages, which is admittedly a little crazy, to online teaching. This is me during my first online class for the American Library in Paris. Really great crowd, filled up instantly, excellent questions and just FUN. My life has no space for teaching anymore, and I didn’t even realize how much I miss it. P.S. my new favorite glasses: $20 at peepers.com! . . . . . #zoom #teaching #covidopportunities #publishing #lovebooks #bibliophile #bookish the #bookaddict #bookstagram #editing #novels #fiction #nonfiction #publicity #imagination #creativity #workhard #keywest

Book review: Thank you to @penguinteenca for sending me a copy of this book! - This book was super fun and stared out very captivating! Juliette’s father is the jeweller of King Louis the sun king and has been tasked with creating a jewel to make the sun king shine! Through a ton of twists and turns Juliette ends up arrested and maybe being sentenced to death, and the book fills in the holes to what happened! - I love that the book was told from the perspective of Juliette’s confession! I thought that this was different and unique. The action kept me fully entertained in the book and I kept getting so frustrated with the characters, which I think was the intention of the author! Juliette dad was super frustrating because Juliette is doing so much to help her dad but he is not helping her, but also he has experienced some trying things so you couldn’t be fully mad at her dad! If you’re looking for a fun historical fiction book set during the time of the sun king then I definitely recommend this book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - #hookedtobooksreviews2020 - - - - - - - - - - #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookish #bookster #bookworm #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookaddict #bibliophile #booklover #igbooks #igreads #booksbooksbooks #fiction #flatlay #bookphotography #bookreview #bookreviews #bookrecommendation #notjustaprettybook #alwaysreading #bookrecommendations #historicalfiction #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookblog #thejewelthief

Tercer libro que leo de esta autora, y éste no se parece en nada a los anteriores, y me ha sorprendido gratamente. Aparte de su portada, nada llama más que la Sinopsis, y ambos representan un buen motivo para leerlo, ya de entrada parece un thriller tradicional. Sin embargo a medida que nos adentramos en los capítulos y descubrimos ¿qué es lo que esconde Claire?, pues ya no puedes dar por supuesto nada. Como tampoco puedo contarles sobre la trama, porque es el quid de la cuestión… Los personajes son pocos, pero todo se centra en los tres principales: Claire, una chica de 16 años ingresada desde los ocho en un psiquiátrico. Allen su psiquiatra y quien la ayuda a Claire a escapar. Y, finalmente Rachel, inspectora encargada de la investigación del secuestro y quien se encargará de perseguirlos. Todos están muy bien caracterizados por parte de la autora, complementan perfectamente la trama principal. Los tres me han encantado. Si lo comparamos con otros thriller policiales, obviamente puede salir perdiendo, sin embargo me ha gustado mucho con la simplicidad que la autora lo ha abordado a pesar de que no hay muchísimos grandes misterios y tampoco grandes giros argumentales y un final un tanto previsible. Se lee con facilidad en capítulos cortos narrados en tercera persona, que nos sumergen poco a poco en la tramas y a medida que avanza se crece. En fin, no es el mejor thriller que he leído, sin embargo es uno un tanto diferente que te hace pasar un buen rato. 100% recomendado. 🏅Puntuación: 4/5 #libro #libros #biblioteca #labibliotecadeariannha #queescondeClaire #novela #ficcion #thriller #MariahEvans #book #books #library #ariannhaslibrary #novel #fiction

Is the impulse to commit suicide born of anger and aggression or desperation and fear? Can we make a generalizable claim regarding the reasons an individual takes his/her own life? Do we ever really understand the things we do, or are we just rationalizing our actions and the actions of others after the fact?⁣ ⁣ NEW SHORT STORY >> "Night Unto Night, by Mott Windal 🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘⁣ ⁣ 👉 https://abstractelephant.com/2020/04/09/night-unto-night/⁣ ⁣ #shortstory #fiction #literaryfiction #autofiction #suicide #death #anger #desperation #rationalization #writingcommunity #igwriters #instawritersclub #amwriting #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #writers #humancondition #abstractelephant #onlinemagazine #artmagazine #fictionmagazine #academicmagazine

Definitivamente no hay como los escritores nórdicos para escribir novela negra. ¡Son los mejores! “Almas robadas” es el primero de la trilogía protagonizada por la fiscal Jana Berzelius. En esta novela, Emelie Shepp nos presenta una estructura diferente en cuanto a los crímenes se refiere. Ya no es solo la aparición de la víctima, sino toda la red de intrigas y asesinatos que la envuelven. Se mezcla el pasado y el presente, y el lector va por delante de la policía, y aun así, la autora logra crear intriga. Tiene una buena trama, muy bien escrita, y me ha encantado la protagonista, que definitivamente no es nada de lo que uno espera o a lo que se está acostumbrado. El final es original y novedoso, solo un tanto rebuscado. Lo único que no me ha gustado, es la traducción en español que le han colocado, prefiero su nombre original. Ha sido un buen inicio con esta aurora, y espero contar pronto con la continuación de la serie... 100% recomendado. 🏅Puntuación: 4/5 #libro #libros #biblioteca #labibliotecadeariannha #almasrobadas #novela #ficcion #thriller #suspenso #crimen #misterio #EmelieSchepp #book #books #library #ariannhaslibrary #MarkedforLife #novel #fiction #suspense #crime #mystery
