Silent in the Sanctuary (Lady Julia Grey #2) by Deanna Raybourn

“I put my hands on my hips, not caring if I sounded like a Billingsgate fishwife. “Yes, it was a dangerous thing to do, but as it seems to have escaped your attention, I remind you I am above thirty years of age, of sound body and mind, and in control of my own fortune. That means,” I said, moving closer still, poking his chest for emphasis, “I am mistress of myself and answer to no one.” 

I absolutely love the characters that Raybourn created for this series. Our leading lady, Lady Julia Grey, is such a strong character and really goes against the grain of everything a woman of standing was supposed to represent at the time. Some of the reviews on Goodreads call her a privileged bitch, and not in a complimentary way. You know, I can see why they would say that but she couldn’t do what she does if she wasn’t privileged and if she wasn’t a bit of a bitch she would get trampled on by the men. I’m good with it.

Silent in the Grave (Lady Julia Grey #1) by Deanna Raybourn

“To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband’s dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor.”

To say I’m a little obsessed with this series right now would be a bit of an understatement. I fell in love with Raybourn’s writing with her Veronica Speedwell mysteries and decided to pick Silent in the Grave up as a bit of a break from my recent fantasy reads. I devoured this sucker. Loved every page. The characters were all entertaining and I was completely wrong about who the murderer was. I love when it isn’t obvious who the wrong doer is. My review for this book will be coming up soon.

Roar (Stormheart #1) by Cora Carmack

“She had hoped. And hope broke more hearts than any man ever could.”

I have had this one sitting on my shelf since it was released and it is just calling to be read. First of all, that cover is beautiful. The online image just doesn’t do it justice. I am also really hoping for a strong leading lady without too much of a love story. Oh please, don’t make me suffer through a love story…


 

That is all for this week! What have you been reading? Have a book you think I’d enjoy? Tell me in the comments!
