This weekend I’m reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. My friend and I were talking about how the Netflix show is coming out this month and we’ve decided to buddy read it together. I’m not sure how I feel about this book to be honest. I think I would have liked it more if I had read it back when it came out. But I still have plenty left to read so who knows, I might end up loving it.

Title: Shadow and Bone

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Series: The Grisha Trilogy #1

Publisher: Square Fish

Release Date: June 15, 2012

Alina Starkov doesn’t expect much from life. Orphaned by the Border Wars, she is sure of only one thing: her best friend, Mal–and her inconvenient crush on him. Until the day their army regiment enters the Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. When their convoy is attacked and Mal is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power not even she knew existed.

Ripped from everything she knows, Alina is taken to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. With Alina’s extraordinary power in his arsenal, he believes they can finally destory the Fold. Now Alina must find a way to master her untamed gift and somehow fit into her new life without Mal by her side. But nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. As the threat to the kingdom mounts and her dangerous attraction to the Darkling grows, Alina will uncover a secret that could tear her heart–and her country–in two.

This weekend I’m reading The Governess Game by Tessa Dare. I absolutely loved the first book in the series and I’m so excited to read Alexandra’s story. I’m only about 40 pages in, but so far so good. I have no doubt I’ll enjoy this one as much as The Duchess Deal.

Title: The Governess Game

Author: Tessa Dare

Series: Girl Meets Duke #2

Publisher: Avon

Release Date: August 28, 2018

The accidental governess.

After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart… without risking her own.

The infamous rake.

Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education—in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling… and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

This weekend I’m reading The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare. I’ve been hearing amazing things about the books for years so I finally decided to pick it up and it was the best decision of my life. It is so GOOD. It’s pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted in a historical romance. And it just proves that marriage of convenience will always be the superior trope. I have about 120 pages left and the plan is to finish it all today. I can’t wait!

Title: The Duchess Deal

Author: Tessa Dare

Series: Girl Meets Duke #1

Publisher: Avon

Release Date: August 22, 2017

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:

– They will be husband and wife by night only.
– No lights, no kissing.
– No questions about his battle scars.
– Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:

– They will have dinner together every evening.
– With conversation.
– And unlimited teasing.
– Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

This weekend I’m reading Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka. I’m about halfway through and I ADORE this book. The writing is flawless and I love the characters so much. I can’t see myself not rating it 5 stars. Sure, I still have half the book left, but I’m 100% sure of what’s going to happen with the rest of the story and I am here for it.

Title: Always Never Yours

Author: Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka

Series: Standalone

Publisher: Penguin Books

Release Date: May 22, 2018

Seventeen-year-old Megan Harper is about due for her next sweeping romance. It’s inevitable—each of her relationships starts with the perfect guy and ends with him falling in love . . . with someone else. But instead of feeling sorry for herself, Megan focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theater, and fulfilling her dream college’s acting requirement in the smallest role possible.

So when she’s cast as Juliet (yes, that Juliet) in her high school’s production, it’s a complete nightmare. Megan’s not an actress, and she’s used to being upstaged—both in and out of the theater. In fact, with her mom off in Texas and her dad remarried and on to baby #2 with his new wife, Megan worries that, just like her exes, her family is moving on without her.

Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright inspired by Rosaline from Shakespeare’s R+J. A character who, like Megan, knows a thing or two about short-lived relationships. Megan agrees to help Owen with his play in exchange for help catching the eye of a sexy stagehand/potential new boyfriend. Yet Megan finds herself growing closer to Owen, and wonders if he could be the Romeo she never expected.

This weekend I’m reading Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris. In the spirit of Halloween I decided to pick up a psychological thriller, which is definitely one of my favourite genres. So far I’m kind of in the middle on if I like it or not, but I’m only about 15% through so we’ll see how the rest of it goes. I plan on reading plenty more today and on my day off tomorrow.

Title: Behind Closed Doors

Author: B.A. Paris

Series: Standalone

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

Release Date: August 9, 2016

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.

You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.

Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

Sometimes, the perfect marriage is the perfect lie.
