“I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.”

If you love hipster, food truck culture you will love this novel. On the flip side, if you love a bit of steamy and high pressure kitchen relationships this is also the book for you.

It is two sides of the coin of the restaurant industry and the relationship dynamic between both of the main character makes for a witty and brilliant, romance with depth.

The back and forth between the two main characters was hilarious.

One word: Salt

If you liked the film ‘Chef’, I would recommend this book.

Review: Firebolt by Adrienne Woods (The Dragonian Series) 5/5 Kindle Free eBook

It’s been a while since I had read a book that has transported me into a world, so well constructed, so beautiful and in-depth that I’ve had to purchase every book in the series and stay awake until 4 am for two days running to cram as much of the books into my skull as possible.

Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself.

This is that series. This is what you need if ACOTAR and Harry Potter are your bread and butter. The mythology of each of the dragons, the magic school and the slow build up with the main character make for a well-paced story that reveals just enough to keep you salivating for more.

The Bargainer Series by Laura Thalassa/Strange Hymn Cover Reveal

Let’s talk about Rhapsodic first:

Everything that Thalassa has created in this beautiful urban fantasy novel world has left me enamoured, in love, empty and needing more.

If you love ACOTAR, you will devour this series without a breath.

I could not sleep until I had finished this novel.

I am a massive fan of Thalassa’s work, and she is one of my favourite authors. I honestly cannot wait for the sequel of this book. Luckily the cover and title have been revealed.

And The Bargainer , one of my all time favourite male romantic interests. The king of the night, the intrigue of owning debts to a beautiful faery cloaked by shadows. The mystery of the missing women. Callie, the strong and modern siren.

Such an intense and amazing book.

Looking at the sequel cover, I can only guess that we will delve deeper into the Fauna kingdom, where we only scratched the surface previously. I cannot wait to be immersed in Thalassa’s faery world again.

I give it all of the marks. More than five out of five. All of the thumbs up Thalassa.
