Between the covers book club

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Sadly my break has come to an end, but it was a fabulous one so I can hardly complain. A new term with all its new challenges await. 👍🏻

I saw this little pic and thought I’d share. Though I LOOOOOVE eBooks for various reasons you’ve gotta’ admit that a real paper book has its charms…

Then, Eloise sent me this clip. It sheds a whole new light on pole dancing…

It seems Britain does INDEED have talent! 😉😉

This week I read:

White Knight by C. D. Reiss was good. It certainly ticked all the boxes, and I can’t fault it in any way, but I was a tiny bit bored by the story. Usually her tales are so packed with interesting factoids, but this one was slim on the usually entertaining details.

Currently I’m reading:

Rebel Heir by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, book 1 in the Rush Series Duet. I’m interested to see how this range pans out as this duo typically writes standalone novels.

On my shelf I have:

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost, book 1 in the Night Prince series. Thank you, Sharon for my gift! 😘 I’m looking forward to taking a walk in the supernatural world with you.

I’ll leave you with this funny – a little shopping confusion…


That’s it from me, girls. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hello, lovely ladies 🤗

How are you this fine day? We’ve had a welcome start to autumn, a blessed relief from the incessant heat that’s been plaguing the Eastern parts of our country. Phew!

Without much preamble, let’s get stuck into this week’s blog:

Bookstr reports on some nutter’s self published book miscrediting E L James, calling it her “earlier” work. She’s denied any ownership of this book, but it makes me so mad when folks blatantly steal like that. *imagine me getting on my soap box* For all the pleasure authors give us I believe they deserve every red cent coming to them. Erika might not be a good example, because we all know that she’s swimming in it, (not that that should matter), but even fairly well known writers do not make a vast living from just putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, as the case may be. Spread the love, peeps. Don’t take something that doesn’t belong to you. 😝

And while the Darker movie is not yet cold, most of us are ready for the cinematic conclusion of our obsession. Check out these fan made clips of Freed:

People are so creative. Where do they get the time?


This week I read:


Fidelity by Aleatha Romig, book 5 in the Infidelity series. My 3 star rating is mainly due to 2 reasons: firstly, the series is too long. You have to be sure that your story is gripping as all hell if you’re going to subject your readers to 5 purchases. And secondly, though I LOVE a well-researched, action packed story, and I understand that a lot of scenes in the genre we read are a tad exaggerated, there comes a time when a storyline is simply too implausible to ignore. And when innocent folks end up in jail, no matter how bitchy they were to the main character, I balk at an author’s sense of justice. Note to writers: when you put something out into the big, wide world, please remember that you have a voice, one that may reach many, many people. As is the case IRL, keep your words soft and sweet AND real.

Currently I’m reading:


Royally Matched by Emma Chase, book 2 in the Royally series. As far as I’m concerned you can NEVER go wrong with a prince and a fairytale…. 😉

Then, as a fitting ending to this week’s post, I thought I’d share a little life truth:

Short and sweet today, girls. Have a beautiful weekend!
