Welcome to my weekly round-up post where I link up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberley @Caffeinated Reviewer as well as The Sunday Salon meme hosted by the wonderful Deb @Readerbuzz. Do please pop by their blogs and show them a little love 💗.
Life Last Week
It’s been a cold week in Nottinghamshire, despite it being well into spring. It is a long weekend with many of us having Monday off work, as it is a Bank Holiday. As the weather forecast is for rain we are planning on visiting my husband’s mum today, hopefully, tomorrow is nice enough to get out for a walk and do some much needed weeding of the garden!
My blog was also featured by Romantic Suspense Reads in their post on Romance Blogs You’ll Fall In Love With. A huge thank you to KT for both her kind words and her blogging generosity. And, for those of you who share my love of romance reads, do check out her fantastic post on the Best Mafia Reads of 2022 (so far!)
Last Weeks Books
Thank you to Netgalley for my copy of The Thief. I really enjoyed this YA fantasy. It was written entirely from Gen’s perspective and in first person, which I’m used to from reading romances! This is a series I will definitely be completing.
UN-breakable was an Amazon freebie. It wasn’t quite the book I was expecting, but I did enjoy it.
Scorpion Trap was from my TBR and is a series I am gradually working my way through in between reading arcs.
April saw me read 14 books and DNF’d 3 more, 1 on my TBR of owned books, the other was on my TBR of series’ to finish.
Waking up alone . . . Ellie Masters comes out of a coma to find herself the only inhabitant of an eerily empty moon station. She’s not on Earth any more, she’s not even in the right solar system. So when someone reaches out to her, tells her he’s her friend, she’s happy to believe it. The alternative is to be stuck alone with an enemy.
The hunt of his career . . . Grih Battle Center captain, Renn Sorvihn, has been chasing a rogue Tecran ship for over a month, convinced its captain is simply trying to delay his inevitable surrender and punishment. But when Renn follows the Tecran ship into an uncharted sector, and realises the Tecran have been working their way to a secret moon base for weeks, he suddenly understands things are most definitely not as they seem.
Caught in the crossfire . . . When the Tecran arrive, with the Grih hot on their heels, Ellie finds herself the catalyst for heightened danger to everyone. The Tecran see her as evidence of their military’s crimes, the Grih see her as a massive diplomatic complication, and her presence brings the whole confrontation up several thousand notches.
But Ellie isn’t alone, and her new friend has ways to help her. Time to outclass them all . . .
DARK CLASS is the fifth book in the Class 5 series, but can be read as a standalone novel.
Looking forward to…
… a week off in June.
… sitting outside in the garden.
…WARM sunshine (since the lovely sunshine we had this week didn’t warm anything).
