Monthly (and Yearly) Wrap Up. December

Happy New Year's Eve! πŸ₯³ Still remember me? No, I didn't give up on blogging after my 10th blogversary (although it might have seen like I did since I have not shared new content nor blog hooped in the last two months). Life was a bit busy, aka I began a course that took all of my free time, so I had to take a mini blogging break. I don't like taking breaks (I fear everyone will forget about me), but sometimes it's very hard to jumble my PhD / work and blogging together. Hopefully, 2021 will be a year filled with lots of new content.

Published: 27th October 2020
Pages: 448 [Hardcover]

Two sisters.

One brutal murder.

A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself…

And an intoxicating romance.

Emilia and her twin sister Vittoria are streghe – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Vittoria misses dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief. Devastated, Emilia sets out to find her sister’s killer and to seek vengeance at any cost-even if it means using dark magic that’s been long forbidden.

Then Emilia meets Wrath, one of the Wicked-princes of Hell she has been warned against in tales since she was a child. Wrath claims to be on Emilia’s side, tasked by his master with solving the series of women’s murders on the island. But when it comes to the Wicked, nothing is as it seems…

Monthly Wrap Up. September

Happy October! Who is ready for the spookiest month of all?! 😊 September was not a very nice month for me. Hence, the reason my wrap up post is so behind schedule. Hopefully, October will bring something nice. I really need something extraordinary to happen to lift my spirits. In other news, I will be celebrating my 10th blogversary at the end of the month. I do have some plans to mark the occasion, but if October goes like September, I don't think I will be in the mood to do it.

Book Tag. The Fall Book Tag

Happy Autumn! πŸ‚πŸ¦‰πŸ„ Although I'm a Summer child, I could not wait to say goodbye to it. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons because the weather cools down, the nightfall comes sooner, and the leaves change colours. Moreover, it is the spookiest season of the year. To celebrate Autumn's arrival, I'm joining The Fall Book Tag, created by Shanah @Bionic Book Worm (it was so difficult to pick an Autumn book tag among all those out there!).
