Weekly Wrap-Up (06/6/’20) #WeekinReading #WeeklyWrapup

Hello Readers! I hope you had great week. Last week I received July/Aug NetGalley blast. Most of the books are really interesting. I’m thinking to write haul post. Last week I read only 1 book. It took me more time to read it than expected but it was really good. And I arranged shelves twice, why? look at this pic-

When she finished taking out all books in last three shelves, she was literally throwing them in whole room. 😅 I watched The Alienist on Netflix. It was great thriller, real dark and I liked characters struggling with their own past. The end felt rushed. I exactly felt like Kreizler about the end, I wanted to know why.

What I read last week-

Dark Waters (Monica Kennedy #2) by G.R. Halliday

Dark and disturbing crime thriller that kept me on the edge throughout the book. Definitely not for squeamish or those who feel claustrophobic by descriptions of tunnels under mountains or confined places. Review will be up tomorrow.

Currently reading-

Flying Solo by Zoe May

Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

According to her Life List, Rachel should be getting hitched around now, so when her boyfriend, Paul, plans a romantic date, Rachel’s pretty confident he’s going to propose. Except Paul has other ideas. He’s jetting off to India to find himself.

Distraught, Rachel doesn’t know what to do. Not one to easily admit defeat, she embarks on a mission to win him back.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all?

I read 25% of the book and so far it’s interesting. I can’t wait to see Rachel’s experience on her trip to India.

Next I’ll be reading-

What You Wish For by Katherine Center

From Katherine Center, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel full of heart and hope.

Samantha Casey loves everything about her job as an elementary school librarian on the sunny, historic island of Galveston, Texas—the goofy kids, the stately Victorian building, the butterfly garden. But when the school suddenly loses its beloved principal, it turns out his replacement will be none other than Duncan Carpenter—a former, unrequited crush of Sam’s from many years before.

When Duncan shows up as her new boss, though, he’s nothing like the sweet teacher she once swooned over. He’s become stiff, and humorless, and obsessed with school safety. Now, with Duncan determined to destroy everything Sam loves about her school in the name of security—and turn it into nothing short of a prison—Sam has to stand up for everyone she cares about before the school that’s become her home is gone for good.

This will be my second book by Katherine Center. I expect it as emotional and inspiring as How To Walk Away.


I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in comments what you read last, what you are planning to read next, and if you would like to read haul post or not.

Happy Reading!

Weekly Wrap-Up (29/6/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup

Hello Readers! I hope you all had great week. I thought I can’t read more than 80 books this year but I’m 15 books ahead of goal so I’m changing Goodreads challenge goal to 100. Last week was exhausting. My daughter slept at 3:00 am four days in a row. One day she slept at 1 and woke up at 3 am and didn’t sleep until 8 in morning. 😪 There was no WiFi for 2 days, no electricity for 1 day, it was frustrating to use slow mobile data to write post and for other things. Anyway I manage to read 2 books and 1 short story.

What I read last week-

Episodic Sleep Disorders by E.L. Haines

It was interesting story, a bit unusual and confusing at some points but suspenseful mystery and I enjoyed blend of myths and science along with mystery. Here is my Review.

Say Yes Summer by Lindsey Roth Culli

This was cute and fluffy, coming of age YA contemporary. I flew through this book,finished it within a day and loved characters and message in the book. Review will be up tomorrow.

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust

This was fantastic. I have heard world building was great in this and I could see why. I loved this story inspired from Persian Mythology filled with mysterious and interesting characters, demons, legends, twist and turn. Review will be up later this week.

Currently reading-

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles #6) by Jeffrey Archer

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles, #6)

I put this aside for more than 2 weeks. Now I’m picking this again and will read those last 200 pages before June end.

Next I’ll be reading-

Dark Waters (Monica Kennedy #2) by G.R. Halliday

The haunting new novel from G. R. Halliday, author of FROM THE SHADOWS, shortlisted for THE MCILVANNEY DEBUT PRIZE

The next thing Annabelle remembers is waking up in a dark, damp room. A voice from the corner of the room says ‘The Doctor will see you now’.

Scott is camping in the woodlands in the Scottish Highlands – but in the middle of the night, he hears something outside his tent. When he goes out to have a look, a little girl is standing among the trees, staring right at him. Scott is never seen again.

When a dismembered body is discovered, DI Monica Kennedy gets called to the scene immediately. After six months away from the Serious Crimes team, they need her back on board.

As Monica searches for the murderer, another body is found. Monica knows the signs . . . She’s on the hunt for a serial killer.

Perfect for fans of James Oswald, Ann Cleeves and Val McDermid.

I can’t wait to see DI Monica again and how she is going to catch this new serial killer. This is tour book,my stop is on 7th next month.

Flying Solo by Zoe May

Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all?

This will be my third book by Zoe May and I can tell it is going to be fun. Another tour book, my stop is on 10th next month.

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (25/5/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello Readers! I hope you all are well and had great week. Last week had been tiring because of my daughter’s sleeping schedule that keep changing every day and when she sleeps early, I can’t sleep. I’m up till 4 a.m. everyday! Am I turning insomniac? I still managed to read I read 3 books. I received 3 NetGalley books and with that now I have total 17 books with 84% ratio. I hope to read as many as I can in June.

What I read Last week-

Mightier Than the Sword (The Clifton Chronicles #5) by Jeffrey Archer

This was great. I enjoyed it. There was so much going on. At first I was tired of seeing the same enemies- Fisher and Virginia in this book as well and I’m still going to see Virginia in 6th and last book of this series but there were new characters and new enemies as well and when I came over that feeling I I enjoyed every pages in this book. Another cliffhanger that made me start next book as soon as I finished this. Review will be up this week.

As Much As I Ever Could by Brandy Woods Snow

This was great contemporary about getting over loss and grief and learning to live life and love again. I loved characters and setting in this book and it was perfect beach read. Review will be up tomorrow.

Just Me by Deidre Huesmann , Roxas James, Kate Larkindale , Medeia Sharif

I enjoyed all four YA LGBTQ stories. All of them made me smile except last one that brought tears in my eyes. loved all characters and theme of the stories. It was quick read. Review will be up this week.

Currently Reading-

I haven’t start anything yet. I read first few chapters of 6th book in Clifton chronicle so I will read it simultaneously with next book.

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles #6) by Jeffrey Archer

Cometh the Hour opens with the reading of a suicide note, which has devastating consequences for Harry and Emma Clifton, Giles Barrington and Lady Virginia.

Giles must decide if he should withdraw from politics and try to rescue Karin, the woman he loves, from behind the Iron Curtain. But is Karin truly in love with him, or is she a spy?

Lady Virginia is facing bankruptcy, and can see no way out of her financial problems, until she is introduced to the hapless Cyrus T. Grant III from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who’s in England to see his horse run at Royal Ascot.

Sebastian Clifton is now the Chief Executive of Farthings Bank and a workaholic, whose personal life is thrown into disarray when he falls for Priya, a beautiful Indian girl. But her parents have already chosen the man she is going to marry. Meanwhile, Sebastian’s rivals Adrian Sloane and Desmond Mellor are still plotting to bring him and his chairman Hakim Bishara down, so they can take over Farthings.

Harry Clifton remains determined to get Anatoly Babakov released from a gulag in Siberia, following the international success of his acclaimed book, Uncle Joe. But then something unexpected happens that none of them could have anticipated.

Cometh the Hour is the penultimate book in the Clifton Chronicles and, like the five previous novels – which were all New York Times bestsellers – showcases Jeffrey Archer’s extraordinary storytelling with his trademark twists.

Next this week-

Proximity (iMe #1) by Jem Tugwell

iMe NOTICE – TO ALL NEW ADULTS
Your compulsory iMe implant will be performed by your fourteenth birthday when you become an adult.

Your iMe will track and save your location to keep you safe and remove crime.
It’s integrated health monitoring diagnoses issues early to provide you with the best possible care.
Combined with iMe’s tailored diet and fitness programs – you are always at your best.

In the world of iMe, you can’t get away with anything. Least of all murder.

Then the impossible happens. A body is found, and the killer is untraceable.

With new partner Zoe Jordan, Clive must re-sharpen his detective skills and find the killer without technology, before time runs out for the next victim… 

Isn’t that interesting? I’m on blog tour for the second book in this series and I received first book to catch up with it.

WEEKLY WRAP-UP (18/5/’20) #WEEKINREADING #WeeklyWrapup #BooksTeacupnReviews

Hello readers! Last week has been good in reading but I wasn’t feeling best so I took a day or two break with blog in weekends. Here is what read last week and what I’m planning to read this week-

What I read Last week-

Shadowed By Despair (Laith #3) by Candace Robinson

This was great closer of trilogy. I would miss this characters. World and character development was best part and as usual Tavarra was my favorite character. This was easy 5 star read. My review will be up tomorrow.

All the Pretty Things by Emily Arsenault

I finished this in weekend. It was easy to guess who was lying or hiding things early and it was bit slow. It felt like was dragging a bit in middle but I liked overall theme and how character came to terms with truth. I’m not sure about rating yet.

Currently reading-

Mightier Than the Sword (The Clifton Chronicles #5) by Jeffrey Archer

A bomb goes off, but how many passengers on the MV Buckingham have lost their lives? You will find out only if you read the opening chapter of Mightier than the Sword.

When Harry arrives in New York, his publisher Harold Guinzberg tells him he has been elected as the next president of English PEN, which will give him the opportunity to launch a campaign for the release of a fellow author, Anatoly Babakov, who is languishing in a Russian Gulag in Siberia. His crime, writing a book Uncle Joe, which gives an insight into what it was like to work for Josef Stalin. So determined is he to see Babakov released, Harry puts his own life in danger.

Emma Clifton, now Chairman of Barrington Shipping, is having to face the repercussions of the IRA bombing her ship. Some board members feel she should resign while others, including Sebastian Clifton, newly elected to the board, are determined to see she remains as Chairman.

Giles Barrington is now a Minister of the Crown, and looks set for high office, but a trip to East Germany does not end as a diplomatic success, and once again Giles’ political career is thrown off balance by none other than Major Alex Fisher. Fisher decides to stand against Giles at the forthcoming general election. But this time who wins?

Sebastian Clifton asks his girlfriend Samantha to marry him. She happily accepts, but then later changes her mind after she discovers what Seb has been up to behind her back.

The book ends with two court trials: one at the high court in London, a libel case pitting Emma Clifton against Lady Virginia Fenwick; while another, a show trial, takes place in Russia after Harry has been arrested as a spy. Thus continues book five of the Clifton Chronicles, Jeffrey Archer’s most accomplished work to date, with all the trademark twists and turns that have made him one of the most successful authors in the world.

I’m reading this simultaneously. Just few pages along with the book I will start later today.

What I will this week-

As Much As I Ever Could by Brandy Woods Snow

Seventeen-year-old CJ Ainsworth doesn’t drive—not because she can’t, but because she won’t.


She’s been living with the guilt of being the sole survivor of the head-on collision that claimed her mother’s and sister’s lives. It’s the reason she refuses to get behind the wheel. It’s the reason her father has nearly abandoned her. It’s the reason she’s sent to piddle the summer away at her estranged Memaw’s house in Edisto Beach.


All CJ wants to do is isolate herself and make it to the trial at summer’s end, where she’ll testify against the stranger who couldn’t keep his car in its own lane.
She doesn’t expect to fall for a boy, especially not Jett Ramsey, a hotshot racing champion destined for greatness on the NASCAR circuit.


CJ’s resolve crumbles when she loses a bet that puts her squarely in Jett’s
driver’s seat. While he patiently reintroduces her to driving, they confide in each other, and CJ learns she’s not the only one silently suffering through a loss.

As their connection deepens, Jett’s focus on the track is called into question. CJ can’t be the cause of another car crash, but her heart is broken either way. Can CJ learn to put her heart in drive? Or will she throw it in reverse? 

How terrible! I bet I wouldn’t drive if I was in her place. I can’t wait to see how both characters are going to help each other.

What did you read last week? What are you planning to read this week? Have you read any of these books or going to add to TBR?

#Spotlight #Excerpt : Little Eden Another Magic Book (Little Eden #2) by KT King #LittleEdenAnotherMagic #MEAwarenessWeek @KTKINGbooks

Hello readers! I’m pleased to feature Little Eden Another Magic Book (Little Eden #2) by KT King and help author to raise awareness for ME/CFS during National ME Awareness Week in U.K. Please check out book details and guest post below.

Raising awareness for National ME Awareness Week May 12th

Imagine if the self-isolation and social distancing you have been experiencing these last few weeks was going to continue for the rest of your life?

That’s right, for the rest of your life – without let up, without reprieve, without end.

On top of being stuck inside, unable to shop, see your friends, go on holidays, go to the pub, a café or the supermarket, you feel as if you have the flu 24/7. Your body won’t function. Everything aches. You find even the smallest tasks, like taking a shower, cooking a meal or reading a chapter in a book take all your energy.

Millions suffer from this misunderstood illness worldwide but there is little research and no known cause or cure. The World Health Organisation has registered it as an epidemic but governments are still not helping those affected.

It can happen to anyone at any age.

Living in isolation, often bed and housebound, without an income or state support, without medical help or carers, sufferers of ME are forgotten by society and rely on family charity to survive.

When you return to normal, we will still be in in lockdown without hope.

KT King has suffered for over 27 years with the chronic and invisible disability called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis also called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She is trying to help raise awareness for this terrible, debilitating and life destroying disease.

The main heroine of Little Eden, Sophie Lawrence, also suffers with CFS but she is still a heroine none the less.

You can follow the global campaign called MillionsMissing and/or KTKing on Twitter.

Twitter : @KTKINGbooks

For more information please visit the ME

Association website https://www.meassociation.org.uk/about-what-is-mecfs/

A bit about the author KT King

Many may wonder how I can write novels if I have ME/CFS. I am able to write when I don’t need to do  anything else. The fluctuation of the illness baffles everyone as does the resolve of those with it to battle on trying to make a living. I lost my home, my income and my independence in 2012 coming back to live with my elderly parents on whom I now rely for physical daily help and financial support. By age 40 I had lost the battle with ME.

Writing too much gives me migraines so I can only write a few days a week for about an hour at a time on what is called ‘a good day’. I write through chronic pain and fatigue but it keeps me alive and it keeps me sane.

Mental and emotional health deteriorate for all of us because we can rarely socialise or see friends. We feel we have no purpose or usefulness and many of us are in terrible pain 24/7 with Fibromyalgia which often accompanies ME.

We can either give up or we can try to do something even if it’s just a little thing on ‘a good day’.

Becoming a published writer is a lifelong dream come true and escaping into Little Eden helps keep the suicidal thoughts at bay. I hope it’ll be a beautiful escape place for you too. One of the main things readers say is that they would love to live in Little Eden which makes it all seem worthwhile!

I’m an indie author, using my savings from before 2012 to publish. I can’t meet deadlines of publishers or do the usual sales promotions.

I can spend months, even years unable to get out of bed so I need all the help I can get spreading the word about my books, especially from kind book bloggers like Yesha.

I find crafting is good for mental and emotional health so when I can I make handmade jewellery to give to friends and to sell in my Etsy shop where all the gifts inspired by Little Eden. I rarely have the energy to bake but now and again I manage to make a cake or some cookies! Some of my recipes have made their way into the novels.

Come and browse in my little Etsy shop http://bit.ly/KTKingShop

Little Eden, Another Magic Book, Book Two

The story continues…

2012. Little Eden, London, England.

The beautiful sanctuary town of Little Eden is still under threat of sale and demolition.

The friends must re-awaken the past to change the future. But when the spirit world comes closer to help them, there is a price to pay that no one could foresee.

Excerpt from Book Two

Chapter 8

~ * ~

Thunder rumbled over the Sainte Chappelle. As she became aware of her surroundings, Sophie was overwhelmed by the scent of damp earth and fresh roses. Oh crap, she thought. I’m in another time portal. Wake up before something horrible happens! But Sophie didn’t wake up

Five nuns stood, like sentinels, gazing into the stone font in silent prayer. An ivory talisman, carved with the scene of the crucifixion, shimmered beneath the holy waters. In the shadows Sophie couldn’t quite make out the faces of the sisters. She wondered if they were the ones in the photograph, or perhaps they were the saints from her vision dream, but she had a strong feeling this was a different time in history. A bolt of lightning flashed through the cobalt blue windows illuminating the hallowed scene with an unearthly aura. The nuns were unsettled and on edge. Sophie had an uneasy feeling that there was something clandestine about their gathering.

“There will come a time when Little Eden is under threat of being raised to the ground,” Mother Superior said softly to the others. “Not from plague, not from fire and not even from the Kings men, but from the Devil himself.”

A deafening thunder clap rumbled directly overhead and a flare of lightening was hard on its heels, flashing midnight blue, wildly through the Chappelle. The nuns crossed themselves. “The true faith is lost here in England,” Mother Superior continued. “Jesus Christ has replaced the protection of the Holy Mother. The spells of the crucifixion are used to perpetuate the evil men do. They build a false Heaven in the astral realms and it will be too late for those who follow the counterfeit God – they will find themselves trapped in an alternate spirit world instead of released into the arms of the Angels.”

The other nuns tried not to appear frightened, but as another thunderous roar rolled ominously overhead, a sharp fork of lighting pierced the gloom, and the fresco above them was thrown into sharp relief. The face of Jesus loomed down upon them from his cross – watching them with an evil eye. “One sacrifice to end all sacrifices,” one of the nuns muttered.

“If we deny our own sacrifices and follow blindly the King’s priests, we will never find our own way. The responsibility for our soul remains in our own hands, now and forever,” Mother Superior said as she rolled up the wide sleeve of her habit and plunged her hand into the icy water. She pushed aside the ivory plaque and delved deeper into the font. Pulling a leather bag out from the concealed central hole, she shook the water from it and placed it on the stone rim. “Even in our own church, if we do not have the courage to look the Devil in the eye, we will never see the truth,” she said. Thunder boomed as if it were in the room with them – rattling the towering glass and shaking the pillars. The full force of the following lightening fired up the Chappelle with an incandescent blue flame.

They all gasped in fright, including Sophie!

Reviews:

Book Two has just come out so here is the very first review of Book Two by unseenwritings…

I loved reading Little Eden so much that I couldn’t put it down…It felt like KT was weaving a beautiful tapestry of magic rather than writing a novel…I enjoyed the mix of all types of spirituality and loved the way ME/CFS was presented. This book deserves all of the stars. Five just isn’t enough…

Book 1: Little Eden

2012. Little Eden, London, England.

The beautiful sanctuary town of Little Eden is under threat.

Human greed, selfishness and disregard are about to turn the last 1,000 years to dust.

Robert Bartlett-Hart must make a choice.

With the help his friends (plus plenty of tea and cake), Robert learns that there is more at stake than just Little Eden.

Something lies at the heart of Abbey; something that stands between mankind and Armegeddon.

The friends must navigate past lives, other dimensions, and even Heaven itself, to find a way to save Little Eden and themselves.

Will Little Eden survive to usher in a new age, or will humanity perish with it?

What readers are saying about Book One…

Magical…My heart is singing…Cosy and delicious….I literally couldn’t put it down…Quirky…Thrilling…  Captivating…Enchanting characters…A rollercoaster ride…I was always on tenterhooks…Charming…

A great escape…I opened it and blue sparkles flew out…It really is a magic book…
