These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Heartless

Heartless Heartless by Gail Carriger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Heartless is the fourth book in the Parasol Protectorate series, and it’s a wonderful addition to the series. I wasn’t completely content with Blameless, book three, meaning I enjoyed the highs of book four even more. This book moves the series forward, it introduces even more elements, and all the good stuff from the prior books (the humour, the interesting character storylines, and the intrigue) is upped in this book.

As I’ve said with the prior books in the series, the Parasol Protectorate series is a very relaxed read. It had action, drama, and mystery, but it is a much easier read than many books in the genre. Heartless is no different in this regard. It is an easy read, one you can complete in no time at all, and it has a rather light and airy feel (there are still heavy elements to be found, but it doesn’t come across that way).

Blameless introduced a few new elements to the Parasol world, and Heartless helps bring them to light in relation to the drama of this story. Things come together so well in this one, taking unexpected turns, leaving us with a number of questions we want answering as we enter into the final book. The possibilities opened up in this one, the things that could happen in the future, leave you super excited to grab the final book in the series. With each new book in the series, the world grows richer – and whilst you’re excited to see how this story arc comes together, you’re also broken-hearted to know it will be coming to an end in the future.

Overall, Heartless was a brilliant book. I was turning page after page, eager to see how things came together, jumping straight into Timeless upon finishing.
