Idle Hands by Cassondra Windwalker

Idle Hands was a book that felt unlike any other I had read before. After Perdie finally makes the scary but incredibly brave decision to leave her abusive husband, it's a chance for her and her three children to start over. But when tragedy comes knocking years later, Perdie wishes she hadn't left all those years ago as then this terrible thing wouldn't have happened. But Ella who she prefers to be called as apposed to The Devil has been waiting for her chance with Perdie and she gives her the opportunity to change her path, but in a world where the devil pulls the strings, can she really change her fate.

I found Idle Hands a fascinating read. We have Perdie's story and then in-between we get Ella's (The Devil) observations. It gave a whole new take on the story and got me questioning a lot of the decisions I have made in life and how I justify them. Ella's reflections were cynical and very witty and wow does it give you a different perspective on what 'us humans' do - extremely thought-provoking. Cassandra's writing instantly drew me in and I wanted to find out when Ella was going to intervene. 

I don't want to give too much away as it's a story that you need to read for yourself, but again unlike anything I have ever read before. A fascinating concept which was at times a dark and emotional read.

Feathertide by Beth Cartwright

I have had this beautiful looking book on my TBR pile for longer than I care to admit. It just looked so beautiful, I almost didn't want to open it. I'm very happy to report that the story was just as beautiful as it's cover.
