Never has a quote been so relevant to EVERY book worm around the globe (and further!). SO many books, but so little time! The same can also be said for book bloggers. We read that many books so we can share them with our audience, but we find ourselves short of time to write all our thoughts down in a comprehensive review.
This brings us nicely to ‘Mini Review Monday’. A place where, to compliment our current content, we can share with you some of our initial thoughts on books we have been reading over the last week.
DO NOT DISTURB (Deanna Madden #2) by A.R. Torre
This is the second book in A R Torre’s Deanna Madden trilogy.
Deanna is dealing with the results of her actions in book one, and the ongoing need to keep her secluded from the general public for their own safety.
This second book I found was a little slow to start with but it soon ramped up the pace along with discovering more about the other characters involved in Deanna’s life.
I am looking forward to reading book 3 and seeing how this trilogy ends, along with how the characters develop.
THE DIRT ON THE NINTH GRAVE (Charley Davidson #9) by Darynda Jones
Haha well given the synopsis on this book what can I say?
The way book 8 finished I could not wait to get my hands on to this next book in the series. I loved the way the storyline played out and Charlie was her brilliant self complete with snark. I did wonder how all the characters did what they did without having to worry about their bills and property (joys of a fantasy book I guess eh? Escape from reality!) and cannot wait to see what the next book brings.
If you like a strong female lead character who knows her own mind but can also have some really random moments this series is for you. Get yourself book 1 and be prepared to be hooked!
PRIDE & PREJUDICE by Jane Austen
This was read as part of the Ardently Austen Book Club being held on Instagram.
What can I say about this classic that has not already been said hundreds of times before?!
I found this a very enjoyable book, a faster pace and more drama (in my opinion) than Sense & Sensibility. This book wasn’t as wordy as her previous novel which I think helped with my reading pace and I had less of a struggle with the language used. I was wanting to read to find out what was going to happen with the characters next despite having other things pressing on my time. The characters were easy to follow and places visited were well described. I now want to watch the film to cement the story in my mind.
I have finally discovered why everyone has a soft spot for Mr Darcy and have developed my own for him ❤
