Guess what? The new Baxter & Co. book is (finally) edited!
It's now in Alexi's hands, so fingers crossed he doesn't tell me to rewrite the whole book or anything...
This edit took SO. LONG. Gaaaaaah! I nearly had a breakdown roughly twenty times during the process. I mean, that could just be because I'm a whiny little baby, but who knows?
Seriously though, if I ever decide to switch the plot of a book four times while writing it again, remind me how stupid that is. Trying to sort out what's actually meant to happen is... Well, let's just say my mind is just a sludgy pile of brain goo now. Mmm. Yummy.
Anyway, while I'm waiting for Alexi to be done, I'm going to get back to writing Strip Joint. I'm so keen for you to read both these books! 😁

I read this in the beginning of the month and fell in love with this book. It was so good. If you are interested I have a whole vlog on my reading experience on youtube.
If you don't know what this is about it is fantasy young adult novel that follows a princess whose parents have arranged a marriage for her to a prince of a neighbouring kingdom. On the morning of her wedding she flees to begin a new life somewhere else. Aftering a while two strangers come and pursue her, one being the prince she left at the altar and the other is an assassin who was sent to kill her. Unfortunately the princess cannot tell which is the prince and which is the assassin.
📌 RESEÑA: I'm thinking of ending things, Iaid Reid.

La sinopsis original publicada en goodreads no le hace justicia a lo que es este libro. Además, al ser thriller, como me pasa con todos los libros del género que he leído, pienso que cuanto menos se sepa de qué va la historia, es mejor. Así que acá va un pequeño y muy vago resumen de qué trata.
Un chico y su novia se encuentran en un viaje por ruta hacia a una granja aislada para que la muchacha conozca a la familia de su novio. Mientras tanto, la muchacha va cuestionándose en casi todo momento si terminar o no con todo.
La sinopsis, así como se las dije, parece una porquería, lo sé 😅 Pero es que es imposible no contar algo sin, tal vez, guiar al lector a una conclusión y así arruinarle la lectura de este libro (que pienso que todos deberían leer!)
Como vengo diciendo, este es uno de esos libros a los que tenés que entrar sin saber absolutamente nada. Por esta misma razón, esta reseña se me hará algo complicada pero bueno, es mejor así, porque el estar igual de perdida/o que la protagonista en su situación les juro que no tiene precio, hace de la novela una mejor y grata experiencia.
On a side note, me acabo de enterar que es la novela debut del autor y sinceramente me parece maravilloso el trabajo que hizo 👏
El año pasado empecé este libro porque Charlie Kaufman, uno de mis guionistas favoritos, está adaptando esta novela para una película de Netflix. Si han visto sus trabajos -Eterno resplandor de una mente sin recuerdos, El ladrón de orquideas, ¿Quién quiere ser John Malkovich?, entre otros-, saben que él tiene un estilo super particular. Por lo que me generaba muchísima intriga que él hiciera el guión de un thriller (la misma intriga la tengo para la adaptación de Chaos Walking(?), así que lo leí. Antes de llegar a la mitad lo abandoné hasta este año que volví a empezarlo y me lo leí en unas horas 🙈

Conspiracies are at the heart of Claire North’s 84K. She weaves a complex and non-linear narrative thread while invoking tropes from near-future dystopian science fiction like Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale or Orwell’s 1984.
We were lucky enough to interview her for the podcast at last year’s FantasyCon alongside @rj.barker. Check out the episode from our archives and delve into the depths of some truly twisted minds. .

When it comes to writing Golden Age Hollywood biographies, the pen is deadlier than the sword
Justine Turner is a world-famous biographer of Hollywood stars. She's also Charlotte Donovan's overbearing boss. So it comes as no surprise to Charlotte when Justine requests an emergency meeting related to her latest in-progress biography. It is a surprise, though, when Justine up and dies before their urgent discussion can begin.
In the wake of such a tragedy, all Charlotte wants to do is finish the Jean Harlow biography that Justine had started. Instead, she finds herself in grave danger—stalked both online and in person by a drop-dead Jean Harlow look-alike. Together with police sergeant Den Brophy, Charlotte uncovers shocking revelations. But will these revelations be enough to catch the killer?
"The Jean Harlow Bombshell is a page-turner, a modern whodunit threaded with Golden Age Hollywood glamour. Its protagonist, Charlotte Donovan, is a sleuth for our times, flawed, bright, and eminently relatable. Factor in the delicious elements of romance, friendship, and family, and you have a mystery as captivating as Jean Harlow's (still missing) star sapphire ring."—Jess Lourey, author of Salem's Cipher and Mercy's Chase
"Twisty, fascinating, and gently edgy, this mixture of vintage Hollywood and contemporary New York will delight fans of the traditional mystery as well as those craving a modern read. Loved it!"—Hank Phillippi Ryan, nationally bestselling author of Trust Me #mystery#mysterybooks#cozymystery#amreading#bookworm#bookaddict#booklover#bookish#bookishfeed#bookaholic#bookphoto#igreads

This sealed envelope MUST be important to solving Nikki Weston’s murder, right?
It makes me so happy when I sell a bookmark like this one. It’s a series I love but not many people know about it so to have someone else love it enough to actually buy a bookmark for it? It’s so fun to send!
Dangerous Magic, an all-new cozy mystery from New York Times bestselling author @emmahartauthor writing as Evie Hart, is coming May 16th!
It’s not every day you have to return to your hometown to bind your borderline-poltergeist grandmother to the family property.
Unfortunately, today is that day for Avery Thorn.
All Avery wants is to report the binding to the Witch Council so she can fulfill her obligation, but finding a dead body and the Head of the Council on the brink of death isn’t in her plan.
Especially when she’s pegged as the number one suspect.
Now, it’s down to Avery and her cousins—and her sassy feline familiar—to figure out who tried to murder the Head of the Council. Magically bound to find the culprit, the last thing she needs is the new detective getting under her toes.
Unfortunately for her, she finds herself colliding with the hot cop more than she wants. And since her familiar hates him, it’s not always pleasant.
New magic and a devastating tragedy threaten to derail their investigations—but not quite as much as the person who isn’t happy they’re involved…
Last week I finished reading the Visitor by Lee Child, and I started reading The Pharaoh’s Secret by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown. This book is number thirteen in the Numa files series. So, basically, this series is about a group of US National Underwater and Marine Agency. To me, these characters and stories remind me of a team of expert treasure hunters which a bit of a modern-day Indiana Jones feel.
The Pharaoh’s Secret sits in the Action & Adventure genre, but I’m tempted to call it a thriller as well, but I’m possibly wrong about that classification. Even though it’s book thirteen, this is the first book that I’ve read in this series. I’ve read a few books in the Isaac Bell series, but this is my first Numa files book. And, so far I’m loving the story, it’s quite fast paced with a lot of action.
What drew me to this book was the pyramid on the cover. From memory, the cover has black and yellow tones with a picture of the great pyramid. So, that’s what drew me to the book other than the fact that it’s called The Pharaoh’s Secret. I guess I’m a bit of an ancient Egypt nerd, there’s a part of me that’s fascinated with that culture and period. That’s what made me pick up the book, I didn’t actually read the blurb at the back of the book. Yes, I’m a bit of an impulse book buyer. And, it’s actually been a great read so far, and I’m not at all disappointed.

4/5 🌟 REVIEW
I was so excited to read this. I had seen it EVERYWHERE and read some fab reviews. I received my copy as a Christmas gift but I received so many books that I only this week got round to picking it up.
It was definitely worth the wait! Fantastic !! I finished this in two sittings, I could not put it down. It has been a long time since I have read a book and wanted to stay up until the early hours to finish it. A slow start, but it soon picked up the pace. I loved Anna Fox, such an interesting character. I wasn’t very familiar with agoraphobia and this book really showed how difficult and challenging it is to live with. Anna couldn’t go outside of her house and simple things like opening a window would terrify her. The story is narrated by Anna so we see everything through her eyes. She watches her neighbours through her windows and follows their lives. I love to people watch myself so I felt a connection to her, although Anna’s people watching bordered on stalking. The other characters had great personalities and most of them were likeable.
The chapters were short, eerie and detailed. Unfortunately, a big OMG moment about 3/4 of the way through was a little disappointing for me. The exact same thing happened in a book I read last year so it didn’t feel original. The twist near the end of the story was excellent though and I did not see it coming.
Parts were a little predictable, but the story as a whole was really enjoyable. A great psychological thriller. I loved the Hitchcock references especially Rear Window. I would highly recommend!
Happy Thriller Thursday! 😱These are all backlist thrillers that I haven’t heard much about on Bookstagram or Booktube.
I’m most excited to read Pines by Blake Crouch. Have you guys read any of these? What did you think?

Some time ago I have mentioned Tim Weaver and his new releases. I Am Missing is not his new book but it is one which I have and still have not read.
l Know Who You Are is the brilliant tale of two stories. One is about Aimee Sinclair—well-known actress on the verge of being full-on famous. If you saw her, you’d think you knew her. One day towards the near-end of her shoot on her latest film, Aimee comes home from filming to find her husband’s cell phone and wallet on the dining room table. He never goes anywhere without them. But he’s nowhere to be found. She’s not too concerned—they had a huge fight the night before. They both said things they didn’t mean. He might have done things he didn’t mean, things she can’t forget. Even though she has a history of supposedly forgetting. After all, she’s a very good actress.
The next morning she goes for her morning run and then goes to her favorite coffee shop. But her card is denied. When she calls the bank they say her account has been emptied of $10,000. She immediately suspects her husband. But they say no, it was Aimee herself who closed out the account. And thus begins a bizarre rabbit hole into which Aimee finds herself falling where nothing is at it seems.
Alternating with Aimee’s story is that of a little girl who wandered away from home. We always tell our kids not to talk to strangers or bad things will happen. Well, bad things happen.
In I Know Who You Are, Alice Feeney proves that she is a master at brilliantly complicated plots and twists after twists.
