Have we talked about Connie Suttle?

Hi guys,

Have you read Connie Suttle books?

Connie Suttle is an amazing author and I will literally read everything she writes ever. Her books are a little sci-fi but for me, their inter connection, the strength and consistency of character and the sheer imagination of Connie Suttle is worth the time spent in the books.

I will now issue a disclaimer however, should you find yourself spending an inordinate amount of cash on a ridiculously large volume of books and also find yourself spending hours and hours of time that you don't have or get caught by your boss/partner/teacher/children reading when you shouldn't, then Gatsby & Glamour cannot be held responsible.

Blood destiny series - connie suttle

Okay, now that we got that out the way, I delve into the world of Connie Suttle. I may have written about this series before I actually finished it - it lost me a little while into the first sires of books as it got a little bit spacey/sci-fi but after persevering and letting the characters swim over me, I moved on to even more series written by her.

The first series to read is the Blood Destiny series which starts Connie Suttle's books series on Earth. It follows the story of Lissa, who is turned into a vampire as a bet between two rogue vampires. Female vampires are extremely rare and this saves Lissa when the Vampire Council comes calling. This series is so addictive, it has ten stories that follow Lissa through her journey as 1 of 12 female vampires in a world full of male vampires. She meets shapeshifters, werewolves and other creatures along the way making it a fascinating tale of supernatural proportions. I literally can't write anything else about the series because I don't want to spoil it for you but it is one of the only books that can make me laugh out loud and then cry my eyes out the next minute. They pull at your heartstrings more than anything else I have ever read. All I can say is, you need to read them!!

I have published the full reading list below - it is quite extensive but once you start reading, you just want more. Luckily for us, Connie Suttle is still writing and I have the dates for her new releases in my diary. I cannot wait for them to come out.
