‘Crow Moon’ (Crow Moon #1) by Anna McKerrow

crow moonWhat a delightful and fascinating way to start a series.

We are introduced to Danny who is a teenage boy who has a high level of hormones, who chases just about everything. haha! He lives in what is known as the ‘Greenworld’. Turns out we are running out of oil/energy, so the witches got together and decided to create a place where they could live off the land and the magic of a spot instead of it’s limited resources. It’s a great set-up for a story.

Danny turns out to be a pretty powerful witch who throughout the book begins to learn more about what he can do. I liked reading about what he was learning and his visions etc. It certainly helped to develop his story line and how powerful he may well be further on.

Yes there is a love story  in this book and given this is about a teenage boy, its hard to avoid that. Look, I wasn’t a huge fan of Saba (the love interest). She annoyed me with how ‘perfect’ she came across as and I was kind of happy that the ending did not see them together. I think Danny needs to develop further on his own and then… you never know. I might change my mind.

I did however thoroughly enjoy the character of Melz. This is Saba’s twin sister and she takes on the gothic witch persona. I think there is more depth in her, than there is in Saba and I’m stoked to find out that the second book will be about her adventure. I can’t wait to learn more about her and I’m cheering for her to find her ‘true love’.

The next book is already on the TBR pile and I can’t wait to tackle it.

My rating for this book is 3.5/5

 

‘Rose Bride’ (Lust in the Tudor Court #3) by Elizabeth Moss

I am a massive fan of any and all books to do with the Tudor era. So strap yourselves in forrose bridev2 a lot of book reviews that will involve this part of history.

This book was the third one in a series and to be honest this one has been sitting on the ‘TBR’ pile for a while. I wasn’t a huge fan of the second book in this series so I was little worried we were on the downward spiral.

However, this book was a pleasant surprise. If anything I thought the action in this book was a lot sexier and steamier than in the previous 2 books. Virgil and Margerie are both likeable characters and in the end you are really ‘cheering’ for them to confess their love for each other and to live happily ever after (or as much as you can in Henry VIII’s court).

My only one issue with this book was the ending. It felt rushed and I wasn’t  fully satisfied with where my characters ended up. But I think I can overlook that due to all the other “fun, sexy stuff’ that was in it.

My rating for this book is 3/5.

Reading = Happiness

I love reading and it’s no secret that I’m usually reading more than one book at once. So I thought why not share my thoughts on the books I read with a greater audience.

Yes, I’m well aware there are plenty of websites and apps that I can do this on, but why not spread my love and passion for reading on my very own blog as well.

My favourite types of genres  are romance, history, fantasy and young adult. But I’m going to branch out and maybe try some new topics and genres. I might even try an audiobook. haha!

So wish me luck, with this new endeavour.
