The Murders of Molly Southbourne by Tade Thompson

Kindle Edition, 128 pages
Published October 3rd 2017 by Tor.com
Series: Molly Southbourne #1
Sci fi
Own

This was weird, short and so good!

Molly is attacked, again and again, all through out her childhood. All by kids that look like her, and as she age, they age. Which of course was so very interesting and I needed to know why. Yes this novella was so strange.

All through out good, well written and intriguing. The end did loose some steam, but endings are hard, and this one was very open too.

The rule is simple: don't bleed.

For as long as Molly Southbourne can remember, she's been watching herself die. Whenever she bleeds, another molly is born, identical to her in every way and intent on her destruction.

Molly knows every way to kill herself, but she also knows that as long as she survives she'll be hunted. No matter how well she follows the rules, eventually the mollys will find her. Can Molly find a way to stop the tide of blood, or will she meet her end at the hand of a girl who looks just like her?

The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn

This predates the Bridgerton books and deal with their neighbors, back in the olden days.

Cecilia goes alone to the Colonies to find her brother in the middle of a certain war. Instead she ends up caring for his friend Edward.

I liked Cecilia, she had lost her friend, her cousin was an ass and she set out alone. And sure telling people that she had married Edward was not the best thing to do. But it was the only way they would let her near him. And to continue, well it was the only way to learn of her brother.

And since they fall in love all is forgiven.

Eward was a cutie!

Good good. I am makin it short today

With her brother Thomas injured on the battlefront in the Colonies, orphaned Cecilia Harcourt has two unbearable choices: move in with a maiden aunt or marry a scheming cousin. Instead, she chooses option three and travels across the Atlantic, determined to nurse her brother back to health. But after a week of searching, she finds not her brother but his best friend, the handsome officer Edward Rokesby. He's unconscious and in desperate need of her care, and Cecilia vows that she will save this soldier's life, even if staying by his side means telling one little lie...

I told everyone I was your wife

When Edward comes to, he's more than a little confused. The blow to his head knocked out six months of his memory, but surely he would recall getting married. He knows who Cecilia Harcourt is—even if he does not recall her face—and with everyone calling her his wife, he decides it must be true, even though he'd always assumed he'd marry his neighbor back in England.

If only it were true...

Cecilia risks her entire future by giving herself—completely—to the man she loves. But when the truth comes out, Edward may have a few surprises of his own for the new Mrs. Rokesby.

Audio: The Unkindest Tide by Seanan McGuire

Narrated by: Robinette Kowal

Release date: 10-22-19

To review

My first Toby in audio! And omg, yes it worked great! I did feel like the last book was a filler, but this one was great, was it the audio? Maybe, or maybe because things started to happen again.

The Sea witch are calling all selkies to a final judgement, and in the last book Toby's daughter became one. So stakes are high.

Let's get back to the audio thing. I really enjoyed Robinette's narration. I might not have been the fondest of Tybalt, but then I guess I pictured him in another way (sexier *cough*) and now he was just so old timey, but hey I even grew to like it, because it is Tybalt after all. And the Luideag was very rough sounding, but still she almost brought tears to my eyes at one point. She put in so much emotion. All the feels. And Toby was just right. SO yes, great narration.

Back to the story. The selkies are scared. Duchess Dianda is in trouble when her brother comes sniffing around. Toby is in danger, as always (and omg, poor Toby!). I am disliking her daughter now, I get it, sure be angry, but Gillian is just cruel, so cruel.

A lot is happening and I could not stop listening. I have no idea how many hours I listened to today, it was a lot I tell you. A lot! I will definitely do the next on in audio. Everything is even greater in audio.

Hundreds of years ago, the Selkies made a deal with the sea witch: they would have the sea for as long as she allowed it, and when the time came, she would call in all their debts at once. Many people assumed that day would never come. Those people were wrong.

When the Luidaeg—October "Toby" Daye's oldest and most dangerous ally—tells her the time has come for the Selkies to fulfill their side of the bargain, and that Toby must be a part of the process, Toby can't refuse. Literally. The Selkies aren't the only ones in debt to the Luidaeg, and Toby has to pay what she owes like anyone else. They will travel to the fabled Duchy of Ships and call a convocation of the Selkies, telling them to come and meet the Luidaeg's price...or face the consequences.

Of course, nothing is that simple. When Dianda Lorden's brother appears to arrest Dianda for treason against the Undersea, when a Selkie woman is stripped of her skin and then murdered, when everything is falling apart, that's when Toby will have to answer the real question of the hour.

Carole's Monday: This son of York by Anne Easter Smith


This Son of York
Author: Anne Easter Smith 

Title: This Son of York
Genre: Historical Fiction
Pages: ebook
Publication Date: November 10th 2019
Where I Got It: My shelf (Given to me by the author/publisher for my honest and unbiased opinion)




Richard III. A man. A king. A legend.


He ruled England for only two years, but the legacy of Richard III remains both fascinating and divisive.



From his childhood in the intensely loyal and close-knit York family to his rise as a thoughtful but troubled ruler, This Son of York is a passionate and deeply personal account of the life of Richard III. A man who loved his family and his country. A king who struggled to overcome the challenges not only of a turbulent time but his own human frailties. A legend whose true life is only now coming to light.



Inspired by the discovery of Richard III's grave and its revelations, award-winning author Anne Easter Smith brings together her decades of intense research, five celebrated novels on the Wars of the Roses, and her sustained passion for Richard III in this culminating book on the last Plantagenet king.




Been an eon since I read a book by this author and this came out about Richard...so I couldn't resist giving this a try.



This follows Richard from childhood until his death on the battle field. This is inspired by the discovery of Richard's grave recently, so we get to have little glimpses of the team who uncovered the body. 



I have always been back and forth about Richard. I never believed he was the monster that is portrayed but was he a saint? Absolutely not. He was a man of his time for sure, but I don't really believe he killed his nephews...but did he know the truth? Probably. Who knows? 



The author is really good and I enjoyed the other book by her. I really must read more. She has such a way of bringing these characters to life and absorbing you into the story and the drama. She makes these characters complex and human. Love it!



Even though I have my doubts about Richard, I really enjoyed his story here. She didn't butter him up to be a hero or a villain. He felt real to me and this version is my favorite of him. I did even pity him at the end there. Poor guy. Lost everything. He was so disrespected in his death. Darn that Henry. BUT you can understand why Henry just wanted to bury him and forget about him. 



At first I wasn't a huge fan of the glimpses of the modern day uncovering of his grave. As we did get closer to the end I appreciated it then. 



Overall, I really did like this story. I was completely absorbed into the story and our characters. Richard felt so real and this was my favorite version of him. This is a must-read if you have any sort of interest in the War of the Roses. I'll stamp this with 4 stars.

Resistance is Futile - Jenny T.Colgan

There will be spoilers, cos I am upset.

Paperback, 343 pages
Published June 2nd 2016 by Orbit (first published May 28th 2015)
Sci.fi

Connie's smart. She's funny. But when it comes to love, she's only human.

As a brilliant mathematician with bright red hair - Connie's used to being considered a little unusual. But when she's recruited for a top-secret code-breaking project, nothing can prepare her for working with someone quite as peculiar as Luke.

I feel this was a bit false advertising, I mean look at that cover, Kinsella says it was funny and romantic. Well, I will bloody well tell you now, there is no HEA. I repeat, there is no HEA, oh and he dies. He bloody well dies.

Yes, I feel liked I hope and thought something then wtf.

Ok so a bunch of smart people are put in a "dungeon" to figure something out.

Stuff happens.

Connie falls for Luke

And he dies

Wtf.

I hate this book

Booooooooo

Audio: Warrior of the Altaii - Robert Jordan

Narrated by: Michael Kramer
Length: 9 hrs and 28 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 10-08-19
Language: English
Publisher: Macmillan Audio
Fantasy
For review

My phone never messes up, but this time, sigh, this audio listen was a mess.

See it started with a torture scene, and I thought, well this is strange, but ok it was Jordan's first book. maybe he meant to throw us in in the middle of things. Throughout I did feel that I had missed something, but it worked.

Then there came a foreword, and chapter 1 forward. And I realised that something had gone horrible wrong. And now I did not do it all over, I already had gotten my impressions. To actually do it from the beginning actually made me think less of the main character! Weird right!

So, maybe I will review the Second Part first:
Second part (my bad!)
This is not WoT level, but I can see how he honed his skill with this one and tried a few things.
I am not sure I like Wolfgar having a little harem or whatever, what is the deal with that?
Jordan has the best battle scenes, wow, I mean the best part of this book were the battle scenes!
This book would have been better as a series, now it worked, but everything happened fast and I was all, but then what? 

First part
Ok, so Wulfghar is an idiot, I am glad I read this last. First he just lets that stuff go, ok so everyone lets that stuff go, but this new slave, who is then free is still beaten for days to get to know the culture or something like that. A beaten slave is someone who might turn on you in the end, and they should all rise up.
Which leads me to, I do not like the Altaii. "Wipe them out, all of them." Yup, that is how I feel about them. These are not good guys.
Also he is a idiot, who mouths off like that? Omg, man, calm down! He is not a leader.

Final thoughts.
I have such mixed feelings, I liked the book so much more when I had not read the first 30% or something.

But it was interesting to try to spot things that would later evolve into WoT.

Narrator.
His female voices, just no, they were not that good. He made them very dark, His male voices were obviously better then.

Draw near and listen, or else time is at an end. The watering holes of the Plain are drying up, the fearsome fanghorn grow more numerous, and bad omens abound. Wulfgar, a leader of the Altaii people, must contend with twin queens, warlords, prophets, and magic in hopes of protecting his people and securing their future. Elspeth, a visitor from another world, holds the answers, but first Wulfgar must learn to ask the right questions.   

But what if the knowledge that saves the Altaii will also destroy them?

Audio: Thirteen doorways, wolves behind them all by Laura Ruby

Narrated by: Lisa Flanagan
Length: 8 hrs and 59 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 10-01-19
Language: English
Publisher: HarperAudio
Historical fiction /YA/ghost

I read this blurb (not this one), and expected something entirely else. More horror in the orphanage, so ok, it was not a walk on roses, but I thought it would be worse. Now there were even good times.

Frankie and Toni is left at an orphanage by their father. He has a new wife (asshat!), and no place in his home for them. They grow up there and he visits twice a month, until he does not. His new wife was a piece of work.

Frankie is the sensible one that tries to be good.
Toni is the one that likes to flirt with the boys, even though they are not allowed too.

The nuns are strict, WWII starts. Family drama.

And then there was the ghost, ok so this was really weird. At first I was more interested in Frankie's story, but then there ghost took more and more space and I liked her more. A young woman hanging around, wondering why, whispering to orphans and slowly we learn her story. And it is a sad one.

So yes, I did feel that the story would have worked great without the ghost. And I also feel like the story would have worked great with just the ghost, as it is now we have both, and sure that works too.

Narration
I liked her ghost voice for Pearl, it fitted great.
The ghost part had this other feel to them and that did work great for the story. It felt more ghostly.

When Frankie’s mother died and her father left her and her siblings at an orphanage in Chicago, it was supposed to be only temporary - just long enough for him to get back on his feet and be able to provide for them once again. That’s why Frankie's not prepared for the day that he arrives for his weekend visit with a new woman on his arm and out-of-state train tickets in his pocket.

Now, Frankie and her sister, Toni, are abandoned alongside so many other orphans - two young, unwanted women doing everything they can to survive.

And as the embers of the Great Depression are kindled into the fires of World War II, and the shadows of injustice, poverty, and death walk the streets in broad daylight, it will be up to Frankie to find something worth holding on to in the ruins of this shattered America - every minute of every day spent wondering if the life she's able to carve out will be enough.

I will admit I do not know the answer. But I will be watching, waiting to find out.

That’s what ghosts do.

November 12th: If you hosted a dinner for authors who are the six authors you would invite (alive or deceased)?

Oh this is hard!!!!

Jane Austen, I would like to see how she was in real life and I am sure she would have some witty and cutting remarks. As long as not they were directed towards me!

Brandon Sanderson, mostly cos how the heck does his brain work?! He is writing like a million things at once

Douglas Adams, I think he would be amusing at the table (hopefully)

JRR Tolkien, OBVIOUSLY! And I think he would like me being Finnish, even if I hardly can speak the language.

Rachel Aaron, I just love her heartstriker books so because of that.

Anne Bishop, The Others. 'nuff said

I just realised this is a very spec fic table! Maybe I should have thrown in a tragic Bronte too

Carole's Monday: Trailing the Hunter


Trailing the Hunter
Author:  Heidi Eljarbo

Title: Trailing the Hunter
Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance, & Fantasy
Pages: ebook
Publication Date: October 30th 2019
Where I Got It: My shelf (Given to me by the author/publisher for my unbiased opinion)




1661 in Norway.
Clara Dahl has made a decision. She has seen the dread and sorrow witch-finder Angus Hill has caused in her hometown and sets out to find him. Her goal is to fight the wrongful and wicked misconceptions about witch hunting. But the witch-finder’s influence is strong. How can she warn the villagers of something they don’t understand?


Clara’s heartfelt desire is to protect and rescue the women who are in danger without causing more harm. As Clara develops secret plots to thwart the plans of the notorious witch-finder and works to help the villagers, she finds friendship and the possibility of true love.



I didn't know this was technically book 2, but it works as a standalone and you really don't have to read the other one. This caught my eye right away. First, by the cover. Second the summary. 



The story follows Clara Dahl. She has seen the onslaught and sorrow the witch-finder, Angus, has caused. She decides it is time to end this and find the man. However, his influence and power is larger then she originally thought. She wants to protect and rescue the women who are in danger.



The beginning was a little slow for me, but then I was hooked and read this in a couple of sittings. I had to know what was going to happen! I was soooooo worried about everyone.  



Darn that witch-finder and his partner! Evil, evil men. 



I liked Clara a lot and bless her heart. All she wants is to help people and teach kids. I was worried about her and all the women. So scary that any woman could be accused and arrested. Doesn't matter...rich, poor, old, young. Anyone is suspect especially if a woman shows any sort of spirit. How no one can see this and understand this blows my mind. If everyone stood up against these terrible men and women then none of the tragedy would happen! 



Loved Christian too. I was a wee bit suspicious of him at the beginning, but I didn't trust anyone to be honest. 



There was a sprinkle of romance here, but it didn't take over the story which I liked. It's not the focus and there are much bigger things at stake so I'm glad it was just in the background. 


LOVE, LOVE that cover!!


Overall, this was a good read. I enjoyed it even though I was scared for everyone and suspicious of everyone at the same time. I am curious about the other book. I recommend this if you are looking for a good historical with a touch of fantasy and romance. I'll stamp this with 4 stars.

Friday Movie: Robin Hood

A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown.

Director: Otto Bathurst
Writers: Ben Chandler (screenplay by), David James Kelly (screenplay by) |
Stars: Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn

Why do everything has to be so edgy and modern these days?! This is the Robin Hood that you really do not need.

It starts with Robin and his fellow US soldiers during the Iraq war...wait what? Oh sorry. I mean no it does not look like they are dress in khaki, wearing kevlar and using bows as guns, and the enemy has this machine arrow..gun *eyeroll*

In strolls Marian showing a lot of skin for that era..ok.
Later it shows that she is poor with her hubby, but damn girl, sell that nightgown! A lace nightgown would go for a pretty penny.

The town is GoT like, oh it was filmed in Dubrovnik, that explains it. Very English. Yup.

Dang that leather is so well tailored. This town has the best tailor. The stitches are superb, also wtf is everyone wearing? Is this a Gucci catwalk? Oh my, look at that hair. These nobles are very modern. Orgy too, ok, also is this a casino?

Church now, priest in pretty yellow like chickens. Look at that noble Wearing a tartan jacket, how very cool of them. I guess they are Scot friendly too.

And that speech how the infidels are coming to England if they do not send men. Very inspiring. I mean I would be worried about the French, but yes imminent attack from the Middle East does seem more likely.

Ohh railway tracks, ok fine that does it. What is this? Is there a single thing that is correct? Nope, I guess not.

If it had been factual then this could have been great (also why is Jamie Foxx even here? His character is so underdeveloped! He needs more screentime!) Anyway, now it just feels like some weird edgy cool mess that they tried and failed.

Working class riot at the end too. The miners are angry.

And Marian, wtf, no you do not do that! Ugh, I hate everyone

Do not watch it. I mean, to nitpick, sure watch it then, but not for fun, it is mostly aggravating. I can not let myself just enjoy it when it is so clearly nothing Medieval about it. Not one single thing.

Audio: Angel in a Devil's Arms by Julie Anne Long

Narrated by: Justine Eyre
Series: Palace of Rogues, Book 2
Length: 7 hrs and 55 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 10-29-19
Language: English
Publisher: HarperAudio
Historical romance
In exchange for an honest review

For a book with someone back fromt the dead, I expected more drama, but hey I am not complaining.

Angelique used to be a mistress, now she runs a boarding house with the wife of the man whose mistress she was. Yes, I had a rocky start with her, but she is a good person, and that guy was an asshat anyway.

I like the boarding house, with its funny boarders, and rules.

And to the drama, or non drama. Lucien was assumed dead for 10 years (as someone did try to kill him), and now he wants revenge. Instead he falls in love. And well Lucien was just a really good guy, he tried at revenge, but hey he is a lover not a fighter.

And then they live happily ever after. A sweet story, without drama.

Narration
If you had not noticed, I am a Justine Eyre fan. I really appreciate her historical romance narrations. Her voice fits well for the era, and she does a great job with male and female voices. I like listening to her.

He has devil's blood in his veins. At least, that's always been the legend. How else could the Duke of Brexford's notorious bastard son return from the dead? The brutal decade since Lucien Durand, Lord Bolt, allegedly drowned in the Thames forged him into a man who always gets what--and who--he wants. And what he wants is vengeance for his stolen birthright . . . and one wild night in Angelique Breedlove's bed.

Angelique recognizes heartbreak when the enigmatic Lord Bolt walks into The Grand Palace on the Thames, and not even his devastating charm can tempt her to risk her own ever again. One scorching kiss drives home the danger.

But in the space between them springs a trust that feels anything but safe. And the passion--explosive, consuming--drives Lucien to his knees. Now his whole life depends on proving his love to a woman who doesn't believe in it . . . because his true birthright, he now knows, is guardian of Angelique Breedlove's heart.

Carole's Monday Review: The Bittersweet tapestry


Bittersweet Tapestry: A Novel of Eighteenth Century Europe (The Derrynane Saga, Book Three)
Author:  Kevin O'Connell

Title: Bittersweet Tapestry (The Derrynane Saga, Book Three)
Genre: Historical Fiction
Pages: 380
Publication Date: November 1, 2019
Where I Got It: My shelf (Netgalley)




Unhappily returned to Derrynane, within a year, under the auspices of their uncle, a general in the armies of Maria Theresa, Eileen and her sister, Abigail departed for Vienna and a life neither could have ever imagined – one at the dizzying heights of the Hapsburg empire and court, where Abigail ultimately became principal lady-in-waiting to the Empress herself, whilst Eileen, for nine momentous years, served as governess to the Empress’s youngest daughter – during which time Maria Antonia, whom Eileen still calls ‘my wee little archduchess’, has become Marie Antoinette, dauphine of France, though she continues to refer to her beloved governess as “Mama”.


As Bittersweet Tapestry opens, it is the High Summer of 1770. Having escorted the future Queen of France from Vienna to her new life, Eileen and her husband, Captain Arthur O’Leary of the Hungarian Hussars, along with their little boy and Eileen’s treasured friend (and former servant) Anna Pfeffer are establishing themselves in Ireland.



Their ties to Catholic Europe remain close and strong; in addition to Abigail and her O’Sullivan family and General O’Connell, his wife and young daughter in Vienna, their brother Daniel is an officer in the Irish Brigade of the armies of Louis XV, whilst their youngest brother, Hugh, is studying at École Militaire in Paris, his path to a commission in the Dillons’ Regiment of the Brigade. His gentle Austrian friendship with Maria Antonia having inevitably waned, Hugh’s relationship with the strikingly-beautiful young widowed Princess Marie Thérèse Louise of Savoy is blossoming.



Though happily ensconced at Rathleigh House, the O’Leary family estate in County Cork, being prominent amongst those families which are the remnants of the old Gaelic order in the area, Eileen and Art find that the dark cloud of the Protestant Ascendancy hovers heavily, at times threateningly, over them


Been itching for more when book 2 ended! I was so excited when this was ready to be read. 



The story continues with Eileen and her friends/family. After escorting Maria Antonia to the Versailles, they have withdrawn back home to Ireland. However, not all is happily ever after for them or for the archduchess. There is a dark cloud on the horizon. 



I feel so bad for everyone. I just want them to have a HEA and live peacefully, but that is never the case. There is always something so it  made this story more realistic. Sad things happen and we all know the story of Marie Antoinette especially at the beginning of her unhappy marriage. I still wanted it to be different for her! I just want her to be loved! SIGHS. And I want Art and Eileen to be all happy and live their lives in peace in Ireland. But alas....not meant to be. 



The beginning was a little slow, but it worked and I liked it. It does allow for those who didn't read book 1 of 2 to be able to know what is going on. However, I do encourage reading books 1 and 2 to fully fall for the characters and get attached.



The writing is just as lovely as the others. The author really knows how to bring the story and characters to life in a beautiful way. 



OOoooOOOOO the feels in this one especially after a certain event. My poor heart! It did get a tear from me. Ugh. Won't say what, but it got me right in my heart there. 



Grrrr that baddie!!! *shakes fist* 



I want to be like Eileen when I grow up! And I loveeeee Art too!



The ending has me wanting more even though I am worried for our characters especially as time trickles on and we know Marie Antoinette and her family will have their own doom cloud heading towards them. Sobs!



In the end, this was addictive! I couldn't put it down just like the others. I think this was my favorite so far even though I was so upset at that one scene. Sob! I highly recommend this series for historical fiction lovers. 5 stars. :)
