The Well of Ascension - Brandon SandersonThe Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead has been vanquished. But so too is Kelsier the man who masterminded the triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to his protege Vin; a one-time street urchin, now the most powerful Mistborn in the land.

Worryingly for her Vin has become the focus of a new religion, a development that leaves her intensely uneasy. More worryingly still the mists have become unpredictable since the Lord Ruler died and a strage vaprous entity is stalking Vin.

As the siege of Luthadel intensifies the ancient legend of the Well of Ascension offers the only glimmer of hope. But no-one knows where it is or what it can do…

Demon Blessed - Nikki SexDemon Blessed by Nikki Sex
I know he’s a shifter before I see him. As I step inside, desire pulls me under like a wave. Vampires are delicious, but nothing is as scorching hot as a powerful werewolf. I’m not sure what I want more—to have him bend me over the table, or to feed on his otherworldly energy.

I crave both.

Temptation! This is how my problems begin. I can’t trust anyone, particularly supernatural creatures. With my power, I don’t even trust myself.

I’m too damned dangerous.

Psychic, Janice St. John, is no longer human—not since her mother’s spell went wrong and a baby demon took up residence in her body. Now Jan’s teaching her bloodthirsty inner monster to be good. Employed by a detective agency, she solves mysteries by talking to ghosts. Then she makes one little mistake…

Awakened - Brenda K. DaviesAwakened by Brenda K. Davies
Traumatized by her past, and struggling to move on from it, Sera has spent the past three years of college hiding herself from the world and content to stay that way. A chance encounter with Liam shatters her sheltered world, leaving her stunned and shaken by the strange feelings and emotions he arises in her, feelings she never thought she would experience and that frighten her in their intensity. Harboring a dark and deadly secret of his own, Liam knows that he should stay away from Sera; that he will only bring her more hurt, but he is irresistibly drawn to her and unable to deny himself the pleasure that only she can bring to him. But when their pasts collide with their present, and Liam’s true nature is revealed, will their love for each other be enough, or will they be torn apart forever?

Tears of Tess - Pepper WintersTears of Tess by Pepper Winters

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

Black Lies - Alessandra TorreBlack Lies by Alessandra Torre
Brant:
Became a tech billionaire by his twentieth birthday. Has been in a relationship with me for 3 years. Has proposed 4 times. Been rejected 4 times.

Lee:
Cuts grass when he’s not banging housewives. Good with his hands, his mouth, and his body. Has been pursued relentlessly by me for almost 2 years, whether he knows it or not.

Go ahead. Judge me. You have no idea what my love entails.

If you think you’ve heard this story before, trust me – you haven’t.

Week in Review – 28 May 2017

A huge thanks to Janet and Susan who both let me know that I had been quoted in the recently released paperback version of Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay by Jill Mansell. This was a wonderful surprise and I am in great company with Whispering Stories, From First Page to Last, Paper Love Story, and By The Letter Book Reviews all being quoted aswell.

This is the second book I’ve been quoted in and it feels wonderful! I can tell I’m not going to get bored of seeing my words in print!

After feeling ill last week, I ended up in hospital this week for a brief stint! Turns out I had a really bad UTI. I’ve had a course of antibiotics, and am now on the mend (I wrote a full post on the whole drama on the other blog). Of course it all coincided with when I was supposed to see Iron Maiden so I was not only really unwell, I was really annoyed aswell and everyone was getting the brunt of my bad mood, so apologies to all of my loved ones for my epic sulk!

I have a couple of new features in the pipeline, one will kick off in June and the first post is already written and ready to go. The other I’m planning for July, I have a few posts that I’m working on but I have a facebook post over on my page looking for some feedback on the overall idea as I’m still not 100% sure this idea will fly. If you have time to take a look and give me your thoughts that would be great! It’s the pinned post on my page.

Finally, I have come up with the idea of arranging a Book Bloggers Meet Up in/around Bristol. I have one blogger on board already but it would be great to have an idea of who may be interested if this went ahead and the types of things you might like from such a get together… i.e. Would you like authors there aswell? Speakers? Food and drink? And so on… I can’t guarantee I can meet all requests but it’s worth knowing what the wish lists look like! Drop me an email and I will start plotting and planning!

So, onto my bookish update this week…

Currently Reading

I’ve had real trouble reading with being so ill and being on super strong painkillers, trying to get my head into my fantasy books this week has been impossible, I tried a slightly lighter fantasy read I have for an upcoming blog tour but still couldn’t concentrate so ended up slipping back to the trusted romance and have even been a lot slower with that than usual.
