Monday Madness: Pippi Longstocking

 Monday Madness is a new bookish meme hosted by Booklover's Teaparty and Bookfever.
You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad. 
Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it? 

So read this as a kid at some point, but it has been forever and it's not even a book I own so because of this gorgeous cover could be fun to try and read it again and in english this time to see how it is. If nothin else I'll have that beauty on the shelf.

Blurb


My name is Ace and I'm the Ace of Spades.
I'm not nice and I misbehave.
I will be your nightmare.
I will be your dream.
I will have you begging for more of me with each scream.

The truth is in my lyrics.
Uncontrollably controlled.
I bleed many things one being Rock & Roll.

I don't date or make love, I fuck real hard.
Did you know the ace of spades is considered the death card?
Love doesn't exist in my world, it never did.
Love won't exist in my world, it's something I forbid.

My name is Ace and I'm the ace of spades.
Proceed with caution, because I'm sharp like a blade.

The Band of Brothers novels are full length and will follow each brother in the band.
They can be read together or separately.

Review: The lie (ARC) by Karina Halle

Image
The lie by Karina Halle

Their love led to a lie Their truth led to the end

Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident and his job from his subsequent downward spiral, he's finally moving forward, getting a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and a new life in the city. Slowly, but surely, he's pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him.

Until he sees her.

Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much she thought she'd die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she's in London, she's ready to start again.

Until she sees him.

Because some loves are too dangerous to ever indulge.
And some loves are far too powerful to ignore.
Their love just might be the life and the death of them.



My rating:
*ARC review*  *minor spoilers* 
Oh Brigs you…

Ever since I read Ugly love I've been wanting to get my hands on another Colleen Hoover book, but alas still hasn't happened, sadly.  Besides November 9 Confess is the one I mostly want my hands on. Just gotta keep hoping.
