The Postman Knock #55

Hello, everyone!
My Internet connection is crap at the end of the month when we exceed our bandwidth, so I have been reluctant to write any posts this week, besides we are at the end of olive harvest and everyone is exhausted.
All I was doing was reading some great books and hope you were doing the same.

Here is what I've READ:

Fantastic series.
The covers make you think about steampunk-ish YA, but it's far from the truth. It's proper steampunk, very intense, gritty, dark and full of political intrigue and tragedies. First book is solid four star, but the next one upped the ante and shot right into five star category. Really recommended!


I'm reading A Study in Ashes right now. I just couldn't resist to read the whole trilogy in one go as soon as I was halfway through book #1. 
Michelle Diener got requested because she in on my absolute must read list; Robin York is a pseudonym for Ruthie Knox who writes really good contemporaries, and Amy Carol Reeves writes a pretty good Gothic historical fiction and I've been following this trilogy for awhile.


This is it for me, peeps. 
Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Happy reading!

I'm really, really, really jealous of you. Just this morning, my husband and I glanced over the idea of getting the heck out of the city in favour of lakeside living but we're terrified. There's no farm out here and husband would need to find a job close by. Sigh. I'll take spotty internet connection over working like a mouse on a wheel any day.

Anyway, enjoy all your books, love.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
