"Quickies" August 2020

Hello Hello Sunnies! :)
This past month I've read a few older publications, and although I don't have the time to write long reviews on all of them, here is a quick recap (specially for those that are not following me on Instagram):- Ride Hard by Laura Kaye5 StarsI absolutely LOVED this one. I enjoy MC romances most of the time so I was really looking forward to this one and it did not disappoint. It might not be what you would usually expect from an MC romance as the riders here are all good guys and the club is about helping others, but don't you think for a second that will mean less grit to the story. President Dare takes his duties seriously, his father did not, he run a corrupt MC and his brother and mum paid the price for that life. Dare dedicates his life to helping those in need. Haven is one of those. Her father is a horrible human being and he is helping her hide and start a new life. They are very different from each other, but that is what makes them so perfect…

I don’t often read general fiction. But when I do, it is often Emma Donoghue. Her books Room and Akin where great stories and I was certain so would The Pull of the Stars be. I was not disappointed. I was enthralled by it from beginning to end and I hope you all love it as much as I did! 

The book takes place during the height of the great flu pandemic and is almost entirely set in a little room, turned maternity ward, at an Irish hospital. Nurse Julia Power, due to many members of staff falling ill themselves ends up solely responsible for the pregnant mothers in that room. All assistance she gets is from a young girl who never helped in a hospital before and Dr. Kathleen Lynn, a rumored rebel on the run from the police. She immediately proves to be a lot more responsible and knowledgeable than the young male doctor in the hospital.  Three days… that is the entirety of the book. And yet, so much happens. It was an emotiona…
