Because You Love to Hate Me edited by Ameriie – Review

My first read of October was Because You Love To Hate Me, a book with 13 tales about villains. I thought it was the perfect book for October and Halloween. As with all short story anthologies, there were some stories I loved and some that I really did not. Overall though my ratings averaged out at 4.07 stars, so I can definitely say I liked this book.image1 (36)

The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking – Review

Today I am taking part in the Lykke Blog Tour to celebrate the release of The Little Book of Lykke. I loved Meik Wiking’s first book, The Little Book of Hygge (review here), so I was over the moon when Penguin contacted me and asked if I’d like to read an early copy. I am happy to report that I loved this book just as much as the first!
