So, Salisbury had another great week in the news... Some more suspected poisonings (this time assumed accidental) but it's caused chaos and the conspiracy nuts are having a grand ol' time with it.
The most annoying thing is that they have Queen Elizabeth Park cordoned off which is not cool! It's a gorgeous park with nice bike runs and an awesome play park for kids. I mean, if it's not safe then obviously it needs to be cordoned but seeing as it took 3 MONTHS to clean up the site the Skripals were found at this is really not cool.
Not to mention all the other parts of the city that are still cut off.
In other news... I don't have other news, lol.
It's been a quiet week, well, except for England beating Colombia in penalties in the world cup then Sweden 2-0 to reach the semi-finals.
Honestly, you should see the hysteria!
(Yep, double eye rolls!)
But anyhoo, I just smile. nod, and keep the sarcasm to a minimum when in public!
Ah, this was a lovely read that gave me all the good feels!
I loved it and it was the perfect conclusion to Rachel and Anthony's story which begun in Meet Me Under the Mistletoe!
(FYI - Either could be read as a standalone if you wanted.)
No Man Can Tame by Miranda Honfleur
No Man Can Tame was a fantasy romance featured in a multi-book collection of retellings of Beauty and The Beast. It's currently only available as part of the collection but will release as a standalone entity later this year.
All in all, I really liked it! I love the story of beauty and the beast and there are so many ways it can be played out. I'm not usually one for pure fantasy books that are low on the heat rating but this worked.
PS LOOK at that gorgeous cover for its standalone release!
Uncovering You books 4 - 6 by Scarlet Edwards
Book Four - ⭐⭐⭐
Book Five - ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Book Six - ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I read the first three novellas in this series a while back and it was... slightly traumatising!
They're dark romance that's very heavy on the dark and very miserly on the romance. Actually, miserly is an understatement. There was no romance.
However, they were oddly compelling. Lilley's plight was compelling and I wanted to see what came next despite not being in a hurry to dive further into the dark.
So, this week I finally worked up the courage to return!
I'm glad I did. The overall plot has thickened and the romance is finally starting to emerge.
They are gripping but sweet baby jesus they are stressful to read! lol
I need another break before continuing.
I laughed so much at this post over at Avalinah's Books! Is Ron Weasley Actually... Just a Major Dick? I have to say my answer would be yes. Yes indeed he is a bit of a major dick, lol.
I love that movie.
Ragnarok and The Guardians are most definitely my favourites of the MCU.

Top Ten Tuesday will see me listing some of my favourite books quotes and on the Book Blogger Meme I'll be discussing cluttered blogs.
Beyond that, I'll be posting a review or two.
I added 3 more to my "Try Something New" challenge by continuing with the Uncovering You series.
I also reduced my goodreads challenge to a deficit of 6.
All in all a good reading week!
Have a great week all!
