I’ve been saying I was going to read this story next for weeks, so it was about time I finally actually picked it up… The Merchant’s Pearl by Amie O’Brien is another ARC I’ve had pending for way too long. I’ve only just started it, but after loving the first two The Conqueror’s Saga books I’m looking forward to another story set in the Ottoman empire, this time in the late 19th century. I’m a bit afraid there will be too much romance to my taste… But we’ll see how things go I guess.

My teaser (1%):

“It was exactly as it had been. It was all so real… I almost believed he’d returned for me.”

I’ve decided to take a little break from the mystery/thriller genre and read a few different titles first… One of them is The Book Of Whispers by Kimberley Starr, another pending ARC and one that I have been curious about for a while now. I’m not sure how I will react to the demons part, but both the historical setting and existence of the ancient book the MC is given sound intriguing. It does have quite a low Goodreads rating, but we’ll see how things go!

My teaser (6%):

“I lean forwards in excitement as the third and final scarf is unwrapped, then sink back on my heels in disappointment. We aren’t a poor family, but we don’t have treasure hidden beneath the floor of our stable either. What we have instead is a book.”

I’m currently reading another Bookouture thriller ARC: Two Sisters by Kerry Wilkinson. I have quite a few pending so you will see a lot of them on my blog this month! I only started this one yesterday, but I’m literally flying through it! I’ll probably finish it later today… The writing style is very engaging and I just LOVE the cover. ❤

My teaser (15%):

“There’s a moment in which I’m not sure where reality starts and my own little world ends. As if I can choose between the two versions, with the echoing wood inhabiting both.”

I’ve only just started reading the NG ARC The Gypsy Moth Summer by Julia Fierro, but I’ve heard lots of intriguing things about this story. It’s due to be published next week and I’ve had it on my kindle for months now, so it’s about time I read this story! It’s still too early to say something meaningful about the plot or my feelings, although the beginning did feel a bit chaotic (especially the prologue). We’ll see how things go I guess!

My teaser (2%):

“On an island, time can freeze, but that summer the islanders felt a change coming. East and West agreed: there was a yawning divide between old and young. Yesterday and tomorrow.”

I’m currently reading another ARC, from Reading Alley this time: The Last Valentine by Felix Alexander. I love stories with a different setting so the fact that this story is set in Puerto Rico was a big selling point. Add the promise of the combination of a historical fiction and mystery read, and I just knew I had to read this story… So far it’s definitely interesting, although I’m a bit worried about the possible amount of romance in the rest of the story. The idea of a labyrinth of love letters is intriguing though!

My teaser (18%):

“She lowered her eyes when she met his intense gaze. That brief glance was the beginning of a tragic love that altered the fate of Old Sienna.”

After adding FIVE! new Bookouture titles on my ARC TBR pile in the last week, it’s about time I pick up an older Bookouture title I’ve been looking forward to. I was actually going to read it last week, but the pagecount was missing (needed that for the readathon). I picked it up as soon as BoB ended though, and it actually has a pagecount added since. I’m not that far into Be My Killer yet, but it definitely looks like another promising psychological thriller!

My teaser (3%):

“The only parts of her body Meredith Hickman could move were her eyelids. She could just blink them against the matted ends of her blood-soaked peroxide hair.”

It’s day 2 of Bout Of Books today!! I’ve been reading Enchanters by K.F. Bradshaw, a Reading Alley ARC and high fantasy read I’ve been posponing too long. It’s quite a big read (almost 600 pages!) and I feel the story is actually a bit overlong and it drags at points. The worldbuilding and idea behind the story is interesting though, although I also feel the dialogue doesn’t really sound natural in general. I’m just about to finish it and will move on to my next read afterwards…

My teaser (35%):

“Diana,” Jacob called after her. When she stopped to face him, he continued. “I meant what I said. Back in the Southland Woods. Every word.”
