Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard | Book club Week 2

  I’m a bit late this week since I am in England until this Saturday and the options of getting on the Internet on camping places is limited. I am however a true did hard so I enjoy hunting for spots with free wifi, which I am getting quite skilled at! So lets get going. This weeks discussion question? Magic and ghostly elements frequent the something strange and deadly series. Even though corpses do awaken from time to time and hauntings are hardly that uncommon, the people of Philadelphia seem determined to pretend the Dead are not a growing threat. Do you think that’s part of human nature? To push on and ignore the danger at our door? Or do you think Philadelphia’s ignorance –…

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard | Book Club Week 1

I have been thinking on how to start this post. Since I am absolutely ecstatic on participating in this book club I decided to just go with it and start writing. So first of all, I wanted to let you know what the book is about. The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia… Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about.

Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi | Book Review

‘Under the Never Sky.’ What first attracted me to the book was the title, it has something almost poetic about it.

The two opposite worlds, the safe virtual realities called the Realms and the outer-world where dangerous storms churn in the sky caused by Aether swirls and diseases are very much a threat. The characters I found interesting… I can’t really say much more about them because I still haven’t really figured out whether they worked for me or not. I had some mixed feelings about Aria. She is…

Deceived by Julie Anne Lindsey | Book Review

I really, really enjoyed reading Deceived. I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t read that many mystery/thriller books, but when found this book on NetGalley the storyline intrigued me and I just had to request it. It didn’t disappoint! It was really easy to get into the story. In the very beginning of the book you get the sense that something isn’t right. Some things just don’t add up and slowly the questions start to built. The tension builds slowly and it keeps on building up until the very end. Throughout the book you’ll slowly find the answers to the questions you so desperately want an answer to. The mystery element in this book was good and thought out. Personally, I figured out what was going on halfway through…
