  1. Yes! I’m so excited for this one too, although Waterstones isn’t sending it out until the 8th, I think, and then I have to wait, which is so sad. But the moment I get it, I’ll be dropping everything to read it. Hope you love it!!

  2. I read ace of spades recently and it is brilliant. Worth the wait! The plot kept me on the edge of my seat and when I read the plot twist I stayed up all night and read the rest in once go (and that hasn’t happened in a *while*). It was a lot darker than I expected! The characters broke my heart in so many ways. If you’re interested, here’s my review 😊
