For fun! by Robert Romanowicz

Some cute creatures that will put a smile on your face this Saturday thanks to the artist Robert Romanowicz.




Killed by Thomas Enger - Blog Tour


Killed by Thomas Enger
Genre: Crime Noir
Source: Orenda Books
Rating: 4/5




This is the ending, the last piece of the Henning Juul story and how he risked his life again and again to discover the truth about his son's death. Ready?

"During the last few hours everything had changed. And now, he was reconciled to his fate. He was convinced he could now die satisfied. His quest was over. He finally had the answers he'd been looking for. "

In this tense crime noir book we will learn that Henning Juul can not trust anyone, every time he shares his discoveries someone appears dead, so he will try to protect his loved ones no matter what, even if he has to die. In this book, Henning starts grieving the death of his son, he wants answers but we will feel that he is starting to heal about the guilty and the sadness of loosing a child so young. And in the end he is not searching for vengeance, simply the truth.
This had been a dark read, not only for all the crime and conflicts that we read in the book, but the feelings that moves inside you; we read about people without conscience, that if they have money nothing more matters, but at the same time some normal people like you or me that when their family is being threatened they resign their moral. I can just wonder what I would do in those cases, but I would like to think I would go to the police instead of selling my conscience.
The story is told by multiple perspectives, making the story more real and easy to follow, let me say that I will miss them, but this is a great ending, a must read.
I don't want to say too much about the plot, simply that this is a non-stop crime book, perfect for any book reader, but start from the first book! ;)
Ready to kill or be killed?

Mood Charts by Roaring Softly

Take a look and put a smile on your face thanks to these mood charts from the artist Roaring Softly, really, I want all of them! ;)



White Bodies by Jane Robins

White Bodies by Jane Robins
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Source: NetGalley
Rating: 4'5/5



This is the story of Callie Farrow and her sister Tilda Farrow. Obsession, murder, abuse and a twisted plot that will make this book an exceptional read.

"Acting instinctively, I lean over and pull her silk Givenchy sleeve right up to her elbow, exposing white skin splattered with yellow and blue bruises, little smudged ink-blots.
I grab her arm to inspect it more closely/
'Stop that!' she says. 'For fuck's sake!'
'Tilda! What's going on? Please tell me.'
She pushes me away, hard, making me crash into the kitchen counter, and pulling her sleeve back down. She runs into the bedroom, then the en-suite bathroom, slamming the door, turning the lock."

This book made an exceptional change from the beginning till the last pages, it was a slow burning plot, but with a twisted ending!
I was quite surprised with this read, in the beginning everything points at Callie as she is totally obsessed with her sister and her new boyfriend, Felix. Callie even makes a diary and follows her sister! So we start doubting if she is really seeing psychological/physic abuse between them or she loves being tragic. So while Callie enters to the disturbing world of abusers and victims needing to escape, she becomes paranoid and neurotic and maybe seeing signs that doesn't exist? 
While we are reading the story, we learn the past of the two sisters too, and it seems that the pattern is repeating... will Callie be able to help Tilda before it's too late?
This had been a brilliant read, original and with an unsettling atmosphere that keeps you guessing all the book. I highly recommend you to read this book, because after all the turns it has it will leave no one indifferent!
Ready for a trip to the dark side?
