Waiting on Wednesday: A Fiendish Agreement

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: A Fiendish Arrangement
Author: Alexandra Bracken
Series: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding
Release Date: 5th September 2017

"I would say it's a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness."

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper's great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn't exactly the forgiving type. 

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor's control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there's a lot Alastor isn't telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host. 

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?

O-M-G!!!!! Have you seen this cover art? Yes I know it is not the final cover art, but oh my word I love it anyways. I totally love reading children's books simply because I love to, I can then give it to my niece and nephew to read since they also love reading!

Let's talk: What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments below!

Until I See You Again

Title: Until I See You Again
Author: Joshua Cole
Published: 12th February 2015
My Rating: 3/5
Recommend: Yes

Recently divorced, Amy isn’t looking for another relationship. Then she runs into handsome, gregarious Michael, a friend of the family whom she hasn’t seen in years. Will this chance encounter finally lead to the love Amy has wanted all of her life? Download this short-story today to find out!

This was a very short story about Amy and Michael who meet after so many years at a convention centre, there is that instant reconnection again. 

Amy who is recently divorced from Robert has a son name Tyler. Tyler is apple of his mothers eye and Amy is constantly worried about Robert not looking after their son properly, she is tempted to call him and see how he is doing. Knowing Robert though he loves his job more than her. Then enters Michael, Robert's good friend. He stops coming by one day and just disappears until now.

I really enjoyed the instant chemistry between Amy and Michael, they have secretly had a crush for each other over the last few years so I am glad they finally get together. It was sweet to see them enjoying one another's company and reminiscing about their past.

There isn't really much I can comment on since this was s short story with about 3 chapters but I didn't like where it ended. I wanted to know more about their relationship. Would they end up married? What does Tyler think? I guess I will never know...

Have a fab week!

Waiting on Wednesday: Traitor's Kiss

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Traitor's Kiss
Author: Erin Beaty
Series: Traitor's Trilogy
Release Date: 9th May 2017

An obstinate girl who will not be married. 
A soldier desperate to prove himself. 
A kingdom on the brink of war.

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls' military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

In With The New

Title: In With New 
Author: Tracy Krimmer 
Published: 27th December 2016
My Rating: 4/5
Recommend: YES

Eli no longer believes in love, 
and Meg has no time for it. 

Can the spirit of Christmas and hope of a new year change their perspectives?

I really loved this book! I can't tell you how much I adored Eli and Meg. In With New is told from both of point of views, we get to peak inside both Eli's and Meg's head. Meg being a new dog owner with Moose has no idea about dog's ( I am assuming she never realised the extent to which how a puppy can be quite handful sometimes). Then enters Eli, the charming, handsome, tall dog owner. Eli is a bit of a expert in dog training, he should be as dog owners come to him to help train their dog. The way he does it though is so simple and always in baby steps. I fell in love with Eli instantly, he is a bit hard to resist don't you think?

Eli is sweet, wonderful and a kind person. With a relationship in the past gone bad, he severs he ties with his brother and family. He lives alone with his dog Phil at his side (like he says he always did think dogs are a man's best friend). 

Meg is a YouTuber who reviews products being sent to her by companies, she is constantly busy. It is safe to say she constantly puts stress on herself and is barely able to make time for herself. And she always helps a person in need, she is unable to say no. Which is a good thing however it does take a toll her...

I really enjoyed Meg and Eli's chemistry, I strongly feel they were perfect for each other. Eli is the type person who doesn't believe in there is never time for anything you care about. Simply stating 'I have no time' is an excuse to get out of it. Meg never has any time but she has a good relationship with her family. See what happens there? They help each other with parts that are deemed as important topics, they also balance each other out = a perfect fit.

I am a little sad this was a short novella, but I really enjoyed reading this. The author's writing is beautifully written, I loved every minute of it.

Let's talk: Don't you just short novella's especially that give you the winter festive season feeling? What are you favourite short stories to read? Let me know in the comments below?
