She is a bit out of it and initially, an all new level of crazy.

Lee, now attending Columbia University and member of its archery club, gets contacted by Andy, the son of Charlie Lockhart, a billionaire tycoon, who has a proposal for her. Heather, Andy’s mother, has a notable past involving archaeology. A cancer survivor, she had been a secretive person and, in her profession as an archaeologist, didn’t make any notable findings although she had been onto a couple of things. Andy is out on a personal mission of finding an artefact in Spain known as the Somme Spear, an object that carries with it it’s own amusing account and magical properties. He contacts Lee to help him find it. While tracking this magical spear down, what stands in their path are werewolves. They now have to fight for their lives if they want to find the spear.

This is the fourth Star Trek Discovery book I have read and another that I loved. I love how the books tie in so brilliantly with the TV series and give you such excellent back stories. I have preordered the next one and I can not wait for it to arrive on my door mat!

I found this a wonderful little story of a young girl becoming a young woman and most importantly finding out her true self and worth. Poor Tilly has spent her life trying to please her mother, father, grandmother and Quinn her grandmother’s husband. She has always tried to be her best at everything but it has not always made her happy. It was fascinating to learn how Tilly entered Starfleet and where she got her bravery and confidence.

I seriously loved the first book! Loved Zera’s personality and loved her growing bond with Lucien. So I was ready to see how after the cliffy where Zera’s character would go from there!

I hate to say it but this second story very much felt like a middle book. I liked that Zera was trying to find herself and didn’t always trust easily, but this was a long book and the back and forth with her an Lucien was driving me up the wall bananas. The scenes that were between them were lacking something. And honestly, Lucien just kind of felt like a filler this time and I was so disappointed by that. I just didn’t connect with Varia’s character either but I really liked the addition of Yorl! I found him incredibly interesting!

One of the fantastic benefits of becoming a book blogger has been the wide variety of genres that I have been dipping my book nerd nose in.

Even ones I usually wouldn’t have chosen to read. And unless you start exploring different genres you wouldn’t know how it changes you.

It’s as if you discover parts of yourself that you had never really met.‘Game of Crones‘ is one such book that my past self might not have chosen. My present self however, isn’t so stupid. *she says proud as a peacock*I read ‘Game of Crones‘ and I read it again and I was bewitched!An anthology of horror stories in historical settings, it takes you by surprise with each and every tale.

I’ve long wanted to read a Christina Henry book. I’ve even bought a couple for my shelf and just haven’t read them yet. I’m thrilled that The Girl in Red was my first because what a way to begin!

The Girl in Red is a post-apocalyptic spin on Little Red Riding Hood. It’s no longer safe to be in the woods. The creatures come out at night, and sometimes there are men worse than the creatures. Ever since the “Crisis” happened, the woman in the red jacket (“Red”) has no choice but to enter the woods at night.

Those who survived the crisis now live in quarantine camps where disease and death are formidable adversaries. Red is trying to survive.

The Shining has been sitting on my shelf for 2 years now (as far as I remember) and I have always wanted to read it because it’s Stephen King’s novel but couldn’t. Finally, I picked it up and it was my first book in the Horror genre too and it was worth my time.

The Shining by Stephen King is a psychological horror where Jack Torrance, an alcoholic-violent person, is trying to keep himself sane, his wife Wendy is trying to keep their family together and his Kid Danny is a gifted child. Jack takes up a new job as a caretaker of an old hotel named The Overlook which shuts down during winters and is located in an almost deserted place.
