Broken Circle (Sirius Wolves #2) by Victoria Sue
Broken Circle - Victoria Sue

Took some notes while reading. Reporting back:


- The first 10% of the book is all about child birth. Not sure what's with refusing painkillers during 14+ hours of painful misery. I would rather be ready and alert for my babies and enjoy the experience. But to each its own. Not judging, just saying those 10% did feel like 14 hours.

 

- What I wanted when I started this installment was the evil doctor to come back. What I got was a hormonal gamma. like uber hormonal. 

However, Paul hinted that there is hope yet! Abuse and torture and not a drop of epidural in sight! =)

 

- The second case of TSTL kicks in around 40%. I am disappointed. It takes away from pain and torture because - honestly - it's self inflicted :/ Someone needs to put a leash on Aden and lock him in a cage for his own safety. Oh, wait! The good doctor, it seems, is the one with the right ideas!

 

- Nate is "innocent"! Hahaha, good one! Almost killed one person, and intentionally at that, then shot and killed another, conspired with the worst most evil doctor evah, not to mention that shady business with his own mother, and yet he is "innocent". I am about to die laughing here!

Reading progress update: I've read 52%.
Circle - Garrett Leigh

He flexed to meet me, and my body curved naturally around him. If I’d possessed an ounce of romance, I might’ve figured we were made for each other, but I didn’t need romance to know that shit.

Stone Circle
Stone Circle - Kate Murdoch

 

 

In Renaissance Italy in the village of Pesaro, Seer Savinus is looking for someone who shares his talents for divining the future so he is able to cultivate the next generation and Seers.  Savinus' daughter, Guilia is talented, however, women in the trade are simply not respected.  Savinus decides to hold a competition.  One of Pesaro's noble family's son, Nichola Valperga competes as well as a servant in the Valperga household, Antonious.  Antonious has far more ability in the field and is recognized right away by Savinus.  Nichola has limited ability, but Savinus agrees to apprentice Nichola as the secondary apprentice out of respect to the noble family.  From the start the two young men are at odds, Nichola can not stand that a servant has a position above him and Antonious can not understand Nichola's haughty nature.  Tensions rise as Giulia's affections towards one apprentice emerge and jealousy leads to violence.  

Stone Circle immersed me into 16th century Italy and the alchemy practices of the time.   I was surprised to learn the esteemed role that Seer's played in the society and that they were often employed by nobles to learn the best time for special events to take place and even who they should marry.  Savinus was my favorite character, wise and conscientious in his choices, helped along by his psychic abilities. Antonius and Nichola were typical young men, but their strained relationship demonstrated the division between classes at the time.  I was waiting for one of them to compromise on their differences as so many of the adult characters suggested.  Guilia was an interesting character for me, I really wanted her to take a more prominent role in her father's practice rather than simply be a love interest; however she did show insight and grow as she realized the apprentices true nature.  Jealousy was a theme throughout the story, and it was one that had dire consequences.  It was interesting to see that even with magic and alchemy all of your problems could not be fixed.  Overall, an engrossing story that mixes history, magic and romance. 

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

Different Fun Burgers
Circle of Friends Cookbook - 25 Burger Recipes - Gooseberry Patch (Compiler)

Tired of plain burgers? Want to try something new and different with ground beef (deer, turkey, etc)? Then try these. I marked a few and funny enough before I owned this book, I made a few of them. They were quite good, super simple.

Broken Circle
Broken Circle - J.L. Powers,M.A. Powers Broken Circle - J.L. Powers,M.A. Powers *I received a copy through KidLitExchange on Instagram for review. That does not affect my review*

When I signed up for this book, I thought it was a neat idea, but didn't expect to give it more than a 3 - 3.5-star review. As I started reading it, I quickly realized this story has a lot of potential! While there was a dash of instalove and some other relationships the seemed to happen instantly, it wasn't enough to bother me. I did enjoy the characters and found myself liked many of them instantly anyway, so it made sense for Adam to feel the same.

I love the mythology/lore side of things! While it's not 'gods' so much, there is still a tone of references to mythology that I enjoyed, and that added to the overall story.
