My Sunday reading plan
East of Eden - John Steinbeck
The Mitford Murders - Jessica Fellowes

I think I have to read another book alongside East of Eden. I´ve gotten the feeling that this might be a hard hitting read. Cathy freaks me out and I don´t even think I have seen the worst of her. And no, it doesn´t mean I don´t like the book. I really do. I just have to read something a bit more lighthearted every now and then.

 

I have choosen The Mitford Murders as the book that has to do the deed. I have never read a book by any of the Mitford Sisters and I don´t know much about the family either, so I don´t know much about the Mitfords themselves. Which might be a good thing in regards to this book. Let´s see how I will get along with it.

East of Eden - John Steinbeck

Okay, the introduction to the character of Cathy Ames has been slightly disturbing.

Reading progress update: I've read 24 out of 602 pages.
East of Eden - John Steinbeck

This might be an 800 pages novel disguised in an edition with 600 pages. The fond is tiny in this Penguin Modern Classics edition. I´m a little bit intimidated by that.

 

I´m not very far into the story, but there is certainly something special to Steinbeck´s writing:

 

When a child first catches adults out - when it first walks into his grave little head that adults do not have devine intelligence, that their judgements are not always wise, their thinking true, their sentences just - his world falls into panic desolation. The gods are fallen and all safety gone. And there is nothing sure about the fall of gods: they do not fall a little; they crash and shatter and sink deeply into green muck. It´s a tedious job to build them up again; they never quite shine. And the child´s world is never quite whole again. It´s an aching kind of growing.

Mine to Take - Cynthia Eden

First book in the Mine series was intense, fast, and short.  Definitely a novella, but without falling to the curse because they knew each other ten years ago while in foster care.  When she shows up at his office needing help, he sets out to win her back and keep her this time instead of pushing her away.  He is an intense male lead and the conflict was dark, scary, and moved quickly.  She was much softer and I think that made for a good match for his intensity and darkness. The plot line was enjoyable and the conflict was strong; it definitely had a creepy bad guy. I enjoyed the quick read.

Early Review! Saint or Sinner (Bad Things #8) Cynthia Eden!
Saint or Sinner - Cynthia Eden

 

 

Beware of Beauty…because she’s got the heart of a real beast.

 

Smart people—and monsters who know the score—fear Josephine Saint. The sexy vampire might appear to be a sensual temptation, but she’s a cold-blooded assassin. Mercy? Jo doesn’t know the meaning of the word. With each successful hunt, Jo slides one step closer to getting the promised prize that she’s coveted—her freedom. Long ago, Josephine made a deal with the devil, and now, the jerk is collecting on the final payment due him.

 

Find the angel…before he rips the world apart.

 

Her latest target is Malik, an angel who has gone dark. The fool fell and crashed hard to earth, and now he’s indulging in every sin he can find. And, bonus, the guy has every predator in the land closing in on him because angel wings are highly prized on the black magic market. It’s Jo’s job to find Malik and bring his sexy angel ass back upstairs except…

 

The angel is already changing…into something new and something very, very deadly.

 

Malik has his own mission, and it doesn’t involve being dragged back to heaven. He’s ready to lose his wings, ready to pay any price, if it means he can right a wrong from his past. He never expected for Jo to hunt him, and he knows that he won’t be able to control himself when she’s near. Because Jo—fierce vampire, deadly assassin—she’s his charge. He’s been watching over her for centuries. Watching her, and wanting her. Now that he’s earthbound, Malik can finally make the vamp his.

 

Can a vamp save the world? Maybe…if she can claim a fallen angel’s heart.

With every moment that Malik spends on earth, the darkness within him grows. When angels fall, they change. They become something new—and a firestorm is about to erupt from Malik. When the fire erupts, it will destroy everything and everyone in its path…His only link to sanity is Jo, and if he loses her…Malik may lose his very soul.

 

The hellfire is coming, and it will rage. SAINT OR SINNER…what will you be?

 

 

In an exhilarating story that has the feel of a ‘Beauty and the Beast’ type tale, Saint or Sinner the eighth novel in the Bad Things series, Josephine Saint and the fallen angel Malik wreaks havoc among Las Vegas, heaven and hell and even into the realm of the Fae.

 

Josephine and Malik are two very strong characters with lots of charisma, attitude and electrical chemistry that easily draws readers into their story and keeps their entire focus until the very end. The relationship is one rocky road with lots of exciting events and sizzling sparks that captures attention and has readers wondering if this couple will have a happily ever after, a super-hot affair or a knock down drag out fight at any given moment. And that is not to mention the issues and abilities that both characters have that makes them likeable, memorable and in some instances a bit remarkable. Josephine and Malik could set the pages on fire with their passion and enthusiasm for each other and their missions.

 

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of thrills, intrigue and surprising twists that no one sees coming including the characters themselves. The past throws a couple of wrenches into the present and with Luke and Leo adding their own brand of tension and fire on an already intense series of events, there is no way for anyone to have a dull moment, in fact, I would say that the excitement never ends in this story.

 

Bad Things is one series with lots of unsuspecting and unique twists that ensures that every story is fun, interesting and packed full of a whole of enjoyment. Then there are the fascinating characters that add unique elements as well as ensuring that I can never get enough of them, so I can’t wait to read the next one.
