The Cold is in her bones

I received this review copy of The Cold is in her Bones from the publisher and I was so excited to get this because this is a Medusa retelling.  Hopefully, I’ll love it  and I will know today because it’s a short read and I’m almost done.

Synopsis: Milla knows two things to be true: Demons are real, and fear will keep her safe.

Milla’s whole world is her family’s farm. She is never allowed to travel to the village and her only friend is her beloved older brother, Niklas. When a bright-eyed girl named Iris comes to stay, Milla hopes her loneliness might finally be coming to an end. But Iris has a secret she’s forbidden to share: The village is cursed by a demon who possesses girls at random, and the townspeople live in terror of who it will come for next.

Now, it seems, the demon has come for Iris. When Iris is captured and imprisoned with other possessed girls, Milla leaves home to rescue her and break the curse forever. Her only company on the journey is a terrible new secret of her own: Milla is changing, too, and may soon be a demon herself.

The Glass Woman

I finished reading The Glass Woman recently and I’ll publish a review for it this week.

Synopsis1686, ICELAND. AN ISOLATED, WINDSWEPT LAND HAUNTED BY WITCH TRIALS AND STEEPED IN THE ANCIENT SAGAS.

Betrothed unexpectedly to Jón Eiríksson, Rósa is sent to join her new husband in the remote village of Stykkishólmur. Here, the villagers are wary of outsiders.
But Rósa harbours her own suspicions. Her husband buried his first wife alone in the dead of night. He will not talk of it. Instead he gives her a small glass figurine. She does not know what it signifies.
The villagers mistrust them both. Dark threats are whispered. There is an evil here – Rósa can feel it. Is it her husband, the villagers – or the land itself?
Alone and far from home, Rósa sees the darkness coming. She fears she will be its next victim . . .

WWW Wednesday #1 :​ Weekly reading update


The FamiliarsI received this review copy of The Familiars by Stacey Halls a while ago and I started reading it yesterday. If you loved The Essex Serpent and The Miniaturist, then I’d say that you should add this to your TBR.

The Familiars is set against the frenzy of the real 1612 Witch Trials of Pendle Hill, that explores the rights of 17th-century women, as the fate of a noblewoman and her unborn child rests on proving the innocence of her midwife, an accused witch.

I’m currently on Chapter 11 (out of 25 chapters) and enjoying the gothic vibe but disliking the way women were treated at that time.

We Hunt the Flame

I finished reading We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal before starting with The Familiars.

I received an ARC from the publisher and even though it releases in May, I just had to read it now! I have yet to write a blog review but you can check out my Goodreads review here. It was such an incredible book that I can’t recommend it enough.

If you’re on Twitter-Book Twitter- chances are, that you’ve already heard about this book.
