bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads
Even in an age of cutting-edge technology, old beliefs die hard...

Conducting a top secret investigation into the death of a fellow police officer has Lieutenant Eve Dallas treading on dangerous ground. She must put professional ethics personal loyalties. But when a dead body is placed outside her home, Eve takes the warning personally. With her husband, Roarke, watching her every move, Eve is drawn into the most dangerous case of her career. Every step she takes makes her question her own beliefs of right and wrong - and brings her closer to a confrontation with humanity's most seductive form of evil...

Again, this is one of my favorite books in this series as it involves a dash of paranormal, a serious heist and a pretty dumb villainess. All oh so cliche but fascinating nevertheless! Also, we get to know Jaime who will have cameo performances in a few future books.

Опять, это одна из моих любимых книг серии, так как она оказалась такой запоминающейся - щепотка магии, дым и зеркала, а также очень, очень тупая злодейка. Мне аж было от неё неудобно! Мы также знакомимся с Джейми - одним из многих второстепенных персонажей серии, который продолжает появляться и помогать в различных расследованиях в будущем.

Fallen Crest Public by Tijan (Fallen Crest High #3)

An absolutely exhausting book, the worst out of all three, peeps. I know I said that this series was addictive, but even I have a limit for drama, and oh boy, it was reached and more here. Also this girl kept changing her mind like a bloody yoyo, and I wanted her to just choose something and stick to it.

Замучала меня эта книга просто! Она - худшая из всех трёх. Я знаю, что сказала, что мне эта мыльная опера понравилась, однако эмоций здесь был перебор. Я еле дочитала, да и меня выбесило, что наша девушка прыгала от одного решения  к другому и не могл ни на чём остановиться.

 Blood Song by Anthony Ryan (Raven's Shadow #1)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads

We have fought battles that left more than a hundred corpses on the ground and not a word of it has ever been set down. The Order fights, but often it fights in shadow, without glory or reward. We have no banners.

Vaelin Al Sorna is the Sixth Order's newest recruit. Under their brutal training regime, he learns how to forge a blade, survive the wilds and kill a man quickly and quietly - all in the name of protecting the Realm and the Faith.

Now his skills will be put to the test. War is coming. Vaelin must draw upon the very essence of his strength and cunning if he is to survive the coming conflict. Yet as the world teeters on the edge of chaos, Vaelin will learn that the truth can cut deeper than any sword.

I wasn't impressed with this book, peeps. Mostly I blame the narrator. Sometimes you are incompatible with certain voices, and this was the case for me. The guy droned on and on, and on... I found the hero incredibly dry and uninspiring, which is why I have no clue if the book was any good.
* * *
Не впечатлила меня эта книга, дамы и господа.. И виню я во всём рассказчика! Сухой у него вышел какой-то главный герой, неинтересный. А я вот и не знаю теперь понравилась ли бы мне книга больше, если бы я читала её, а не слушала.

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
