Return to Paris

Until I Die - Amy Plum
Available Now - Sorry I'm a bit late on this one. 

There's nothing I love more than going somewhere far away for a holiday and reading a good book set in my chosen destination so, as I had a trip to Paree planned for Christmas I made myself hold off on reading this follow up to Die for Me knowing what awesome heightened holiday experience awaited me *glee*

Reading about Kate and Vincent's world while seeing and feeling it was really special, as I explored Montmartre or read in a cosy cafe because Amy Plum gives you such a feel for life in Paris that reading and reality blissfully merged together so effortlessly. 

Continuing the love story of Kate (human) and Vincent (Revenant) and their somewhat doomed situation the two are desperately seeking a way to assuage Vincent's constant desire to sacrifice himself saving others to save Kate for the harrowing heartache that it causes. The sequel builds on the already strong characters of book one and introduces some new faces and their murky motives to the mix, with major upheaval in the revenant world and everyone chasing after an ancient prophecy about the 'chosen one' its all on for young and old (or in this case very, very old). There was also another mystery moment between Kate and Jules…Is Jules secretly pining after Vincent's girl?? Stay tuned for certain disaster here!

So if you would love a virtual trip to the city of lights with a dash of romance and more than a hint of intrigue (and really who isn't?) then this is for you!

Don't give up your day Job, oh wait, you already did…

Necromancing the Stone - Lish McBride
Available Now

I absolutely loved the first book in this series Hold me Closer Necromancer and let me tell you some of the events that transpire in this long awaited sequel can only be described as disturbing yet Lish's wicked sense of humour makes even the most morbid scenes incredibly entertaining! So much so that you will certainly be given some weird looks on the bus as you snigger out loud to yourself while shaking your head (hehehahahahehehehe….ahhh).

Meet Sam, no longer a fry cook but now a newly discovered Necromancer and the likewise new owner of a mansion full of disgruntled staff - if you call stone Gladiators, shrubbery and Gnomes with a lack of potty training staff - add to this drama, Sam's best friend has recently been turned into a were-bear, his baby sister has been threatened and his relationship has taken a severe nose dive, oh and did I mention a Gnome keeps pissing on his bed? Yeps Sam's got a lot of "stuff" going on  but not to worry he handles it all with a smile and some witty repartee. If your after a good fun read then I implore you to put this at the top of your pile!

Cinderella Story anyone?

The Boy who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window - Kirsty Moseley
E-book - Available Now (I found it on iTunes for FREE!!!)

Now I realise the title screams stalker but its about much, much more than that :) Here's a little on what it is actually about….

The horrors and reality of domestic violence and family banding together when things are at their worst. Its also a story of acceptance, of finding the one you love in the last place you would expect and as the story is set around a damaged 17yr old, Amber its has plenty of thrilling 1st's (kisses, times and relationships, Awe). Its modern, comical, suspenseful, gripping, engaging, endearing, hopeful and all told with an earnest voice.

But I guess above all its about good things coming to good people, because at the end of the day isn't that what we all want - a Happy Ending? I know its personally what I want, to believe that even though shit things can and do happen, that they cant define you or who you can become.

For fans of Beautiful Disaster
