Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently





Current book:

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast

Nancy Campbell Allen



A Sneak Peek on Reading List   Beauty and the Clockwork Beast



Goodreads Summary:

Jane Eyre meets Beauty and the Beast. 

When Lucy Pickett arrives at Blackwell Manor to tend to her ailing cousin, Kate, she finds more than she bargained for. A restless ghost roams the hallways, werewolves have been reported in the area, and vampires lurk across the Scottish border. Lord Miles himself is clearly hiding a secret. He is brash and inhospitable, and does not take kindly to visitors—even one as smart and attractive as Miss Pickett. He is unsettled by the mysterious deaths of his new wife, Clara, and his sister, Marie. Working together, Miles and Lucy attempt to restore peace to Blackwell Manor. But can Lucy solve the mystery of Miles? Can she love the man—beast and all?



Sneak Peek:

"I am beginning to wonder if you even care about our success. If you have a death wish, my lord, you could have just crossed any lines when we were in  battle."  p 57







Initial Thoughts

So it's October, and I am of the mindset that it is the perfect month to push yourself, just slightly, out of your comfort zone with reading.  I picked up this particular book with that in mind, as it deals with ghosts, vampires, shape-shifters, and more... and those are not really my thing with fiction.  But a Beauty and the Beast retelling... well that is...  Needless to say, this book kept me up, almost all night one night because of the thrilling nature of a few scenes... and I loved it!
