What the Hell am I Reading?

Time to discuss what I’m currently reading (again)! I am only reading three book right now but another just came in from the library so…that could change. But for now, these are the books I’m reading and yay for them all being good and not completely depressing!



Scotland, 1830. Lady Kiera Darby is no stranger to intrigue—in fact, it seems to follow wherever she goes. After her foray into murder investigation, Kiera must journey to Edinburgh with her family so that her pregnant sister can be close to proper medical care. But the city is full of many things Kiera isn’t quite ready to face: the society ladies keen on judging her, her fellow investigator—and romantic entanglement—Sebastian Gage, and ultimately, another deadly mystery.

Kiera’s old friend Michael Dalmay is about to be married, but the arrival of his older brother—and Kiera’s childhood art tutor—William, has thrown everything into chaos. For ten years Will has been missing, committed to an insane asylum by his own father. Kiera is sympathetic to her mentor’s plight, especially when rumors swirl about a local girl gone missing. Now Kiera must once again employ her knowledge of the macabre and join forces with Gage in order to prove the innocence of a beloved family friend—and save the marriage of another…

Thoughts: So far, I am in love with this series! This is the second book and while I’m a little worried about how the whole “William is back from the insane asylum” thing is going to work out, I’m about 1/4 way through and it’s been really good. Kiera and Gage’s chemistry continues to be off the charts and I cannot get enough.



Set on a remote island off the Irish coast, this is one guest list no one would want to be on, just as no one would have wanted an invitation to the New Year’s Eve party in Foley’s previous novel, The Hunting Party . Lives unravel amid the revelry on an eerie and remote island as family and friends assemble for a glam wedding in an updated Murder on the Orient Express. Each of the principal characters has a reason to want one of their number dead, there are old secrets, and one of them is murdered. 

Thoughts: I LOVE THRILLERS. Especially when they’re murder mysteries. And don’t get me started about mysteries in Ireland. They are MY JAM. Again, I’m about 1/4 way through and it’s so addictive. I like almost none of the characters and yet, it’s hard to put down.



It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.

Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee, and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all–and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew . . .

This fresh take on a classic story will make readers question the tales they’ve been told, and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.

Thoughts: THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! It’s about fighting the patriarchy that is the government and it’s f/f and it’s BADASS. You think you know the story of Cinderella?? YOU DON’T! This version is so imaginative and scary and brutal. The fairy godmother is not who you think she is and neither is Prince Charming. Sophia and Constance are absolutely brilliant and I really can’t wait until July when everyone gets to read it.
