Re Share Review: The Diabolical Bones (Brontë Sisters Mystery #2) by Bella Ellis

I never met a Bronte novel that I didn’t like. I love the Bronte’s and when I saw a series of books about the Bronte’s as detectives was coming out, I was chomping at the bit to dive into it! But I did have some hesitations. There was part of me that was thrilled for a new take on the Brontes, but another part of me was worried it would be a hokey series.

But after reading the first book, I was pleasantly surprised by how well written and developed the characters and plot were! I thought the first book was wonderful and was really looking forward to the second. I actually enjoyed the second book, The Diabolical Bones, a little better but both were wonderful!

Now the Diabolical Bones is out in paperback and I am so excited to be re-sharing my review with you guys today! If you are looking for a smart fun new series with familiar characters and historical figures then look no further! This mystery in particular was quite chilling and satisfying so be sure to pick up a copy of this wonderful read today!

Review: Do No Harm by Christina McDonald

If you are a fan of Breaking Bad, then this might be a book you would be interested in. I have only watched a couple of Break Bad episodes but I love the idea a regular every day person faced with an unprecedented choice to sell drugs to try and save themselves or someone they love.

This book caught my eye for that reason, the main character Emma, decides to sell drugs to fund her son’s cancer treatment and as a mother I can say that I would do anything if it meant saving my son’s life. I could immediately sympathize with the main character before cracking open the book based on the bonds of motherhood.

Not only did this book promise to be a unique medical thriller but it also explored the darker world of drugs, addiction, and all the dangers that come along with that lifestyle. I enjoyed this one a lot more than I anticipated. When I first picked it up I was coming off of a long romance binge and wasn’t in the mood to read a thriller……but this one grabbed me!

Special Feature: The Minders by John Marrs

I don’t read a ton of sci fi but I do enjoy a good dystopian novel and this latest novel by John Marrs sounds like it strikes the perfect balance between dystopian and sci fi that will appeal to a wide audience! This one even has a bit of government conspiracy which is one of the reasons why it caught my eye!

Marrs has written a number of thrillers that have been widely praised but this appears to be his first dystopian/sci fi novel and I am so excited to check it out. It sounds like it’s also going to have some thriller elements so this one looks like it’s going to have broad appeal for audiences. This one boasts a lot of action and suspense which, in my mind, means it will read quick.

If you are looking for a new thriller with a heavy mix of sci fi and dystopian lit then you are going to want to get this one on your radar. Marrs has a large fan base and his thrillers have been widely praised by fans. This one in-particular has already received a lot of hight praise too! While I cannot fit this one on my review schedule for this month, I plan on reading it very soon in the future. It’s out now so if this one sounds appealing to you, then you should grab yourself a copy now!
