So far, Broken is centered around a small town police force and the potentially shady things they’ve been doing. I’m really enjoying the mystery, but Will and Sara are 👌.
Imagine that your husband has two other wives.
The Wives will take you on a journey with so many twists and turns you’ll forget which way is up and which way is down. It will easily make it in my top books of the year.
Serpent & Dove is just another YA fantasy with bland characters and a poorly defined magic system.
Release Date: November 5, 2019
Gifted musician Clemency Thompson is playing for tourists on the streets of southern France when she receives an urgent text message. Her childhood friend, Lucy, is demanding her immediate return to London.
It’s happening, says the message. The baby is back.
Libby Jones was only six months old when she became an orphan. Now twenty-five, she’s astounded to learn of an inheritance that will change her life. A gorgeous, dilapidated townhouse in one of London’s poshest neighborhoods has been held in a trust for her all these years. Now it’s hers.
As Libby investigates the story of her birth parents and the dark legacy of her new home, Clemency and Lucy are headed her way to uncover, and possibly protect, secrets of their own. What really happened in that rambling Chelsea mansion when they were children? And are they still at risk?
I really want to pick up The Burning White as soon as I get my hands on it, but I know I won’t have time for or enjoy The Family Upstairs if I don’t read it first.
The nail-biting conclusion to the Lightbringer series!
Stripped of both magical and political power, the people he once ruled told he’s dead, and now imprisoned in his own magical dungeon, former Emperor Gavin Guile has no prospect of escape. But the world faces a calamity greater than the Seven Satrapies has ever seen… and only he can save it.
As the armies of the White King defeat the Chromeria and old gods are born anew, the fate of worlds will come down to one question: Who is the Lightbringer?

I’ve never heard of The Wives, but now I need to check it out! Looking forward to your review😁
I recommend it tenfold! So damn good! 😀
Looking forward to your thoughts on The Family Upstairs – I have read 5 Lisa Jewell books already and enjoyed most of them.
Can’t wait for you to dig into that autographed edition of The Burning White! 😛
I’ve been low key eyeing the reviews/ratings on The Wives. I love the twisty turny thrillers! It sounds awesome so I’ll have to see if I can track down a copy.
It’s worth every second. I hope you manage to grab a copy! I think it’s still on Netgalley.
I didn’t request it on NG because I felt like I wasn’t going to get approved (and supposedly publishers look at that approved to declined ratio, which seems silly to me because I feel like there shouldn’t be any harm in asking). I’ll probably grab a copy from the library when it rereleases though because it definitely intrigues me!
I recently got denied for it from Netgalley. I didn’t know they looked at that. That’s very annoying and slightly unfair.
It comes out in December, so only a couple more months!
Maybe some publishers don’t? It depends on probably who is doing the approving. I actually prefer Edelweiss because I can’t see that publishers can see how many requests you made and how many are granted.
I feel like if they see a high number of declined requests it prejudices them against you a little no matter what your feedback ratio is. It’s why I don’t bother requesting from Tor at all even though I read a lot of their stuff.
I haven’t had too much luck with Edelweiss. I’ve only been approved for a hand full of books, though I’m not super active on the site either. I’m not a fan of the layout.
I don’t bother with Tor either.
I’ve heard that it helps to put some of your old reviews in Edelweiss. You don’t have to submit to the publisher, just upload the rating and review. It does seem to help.
And I agree the layout is not wonderful, but I’ve just had better luck with them.
Good to know! I’ll carve out some time 👌🏻
