Thank you to Chicken House books for sending over a copy in exchange for an honest review. Continue reading “The Cantankerous Molly Darling by Alvy Carragher // Blog Tour”
‘Harvey Anderson is a twenty-six-year-old street performer from New Jersey. He likes his peaceful life, but everything he knows is turned upside down when he is abducted and beaten by a group of nondescript thugs. Working for a sinister man known as “The Spider,” these goons have spent the last nine years searching for Harvey’s girlfriend, Sally Starling. Now they think they know where she lives. And who she loves.
There’s only one problem: Sally is gone and Harvey has no memory of her. Which doesn’t make any sense, until The Spider explains that Sally has the unique ability to selectively erase a person’s memories. An ability she has used to delete herself from Harvey’s mind.
But as Harvey recovers from his beating, he discovers that Sally left him with one partial memory… a dancing girl in a blue dress.
Life isn’t peaceful for Harvey anymore, and he soon finds himself in a war he can never win.
Or can he?’
So after being in a bit of a reading slump for the past few months, I thought I’d take a minute to organise my summer TBR to hopefully help myself get back on track. Not only are there a lot of amazing books coming out this summer, but I’ve bought so many during the start of this year that I still need to read!
“Do you know, you are the only person to have heard mum’s heartbeat from the inside?”
Today as part of Hodder’s blog tour for the books UK paperback release, I’m talking about Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor. Laini is one of my all time favourite authors so I’m really excited to be a part of this tour!
This review is spoiler free for Muse for Nightmares but may contain spoilers for Strange the Dreamer.
So March has been a bit of an odd reading month for me. I’ve not read as much as I hoped, but I did find some new favourites! I’ve also been to a few bookish events and been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer so probably haven’t read as much as I thought I would.
Here’s my March reads:
The house at the end of the lane burned down, and Rita Frost and her teenage ward, Bevan, were never seen again. The townspeople never learned what happened.
Only Mae and her brother Rossa know the truth; they spent two summers with Rita and Bevan, two of the strangest summers of their lives…
Because nothing in that house was as it seemed: a cat who was more than a cat, and a dark power called Sweet James that lurked behind the wallpaper, enthralling Bevan with whispers of neon magic and escape. And in the summer heat, Mae became equally as enthralled with Bevan. Desperately in the grips of first love, she’d give the other girl anything.
A dangerous offer when all that Sweet James desired was a taste of new flesh…
Huge thank you to Titan Books for sending me an early review copy.
So I’m currently trying to work out how to write this entire review without gushing or spoiling everything… here we go!
I’ve been so excited to read Other Words for Smoke; I loved Sarah’s first novel, Spare and Found Parts, and since hearing her speak about OWFS at an event last year and reading a sampler, I’ve been hooked. Obviously I went into this book with high expectations but Sarah’s gorgeous writing surpassed them all.
