An Edinburgh Escape

For my mum’s 60th I arranged a surprise trip to Edinburgh. She had no idea where we were going until we got on the train. Or that I had invited some family and friends to join us. Her face was a picture when she saw everyone coming out of the lift at the hotel!

Hero at the Fall – Alwyn Hamilton

A great conclusion to the trilogy, what a journey! For once I felt fully satisfied with the ending although I still want more!

To Kill a Kingdom – Alexandra Christo*

Lira is a true anti-hero that you just can’t help rooting for throughout the story. I’m a sucker for a flawed main character, especially one this bad ass.

Hello Stranger – Lisa Kleypas

Hello Stranger is an enjoyable read with plenty of love, suspense and intrigue.

The Sin Eater’s Daughter – Melinda Salisbury

Although The Sin Eater’s Daughter is only 300 pages long I felt a lot was crammed into those pages. It certainly wasn’t a “slow burner” it got going straight away.

Island in the East – Jenny Ashcroft*

Island in the east is a fast-paced adventure that I couldn’t put down, I can’t wait for the next one.

The Extinction Trials – S.M. Wilson

I was starting to get really bored of reading the same old YA fantasy story over and over again. So when the opportunity to try something different presented itself with the extinction trials I thought why the hell not!

The Cruel Prince – Holly Black

A slow burner for me, but once the story got moving, in particular, the last 10%, I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to see what happens in the second book coming in January 2019.
