I had a long list of books that I was hoping to read over the summer and I failed. Terribly. I read two. Two, books. I'm so disappointed in myself. I'm really hoping that as I get into my groove with school starting up, I can read more. I truly enjoy it and still have that long list of books.
A female apothecary secretly dispenses poisons to liberate women from the men who have wronged them—setting three lives across centuries on a dangerous collision course. Rule #1: The poison must never be used to harm another woman.
This was a book club book and I was so skeptical about reading it but once I got past the first couple chapters, I couldn't put it down. The woman takes over the apothecary from her mother and after being betrayed by a man, she begins to use the medicine to get revenge. All goes well until a twelve year old girl comes for potion and then a relationship forms. Then, in the present day, a woman spends her anniversary in London and stumbles upon an apothecary jar and sets out on a mission to find the history behind it. Two worlds come together.
I'm currently reading Viper Pilot and I'm hoping to read a couple more books this month! Happy Thursday and happy reading, friends!
