Hello lovely ladies 🙂
As we’re slipping into cooler temps I have to wonder why we don’t get to hibernate. Imagine a whole winter snoozing, reading, and snacking. Sounds good, right? I hope our northern hemisphere counterparts are enjoying their sunny climes 😉 At least the weather makes for great reading times.
This week I had a good reading week but it’s left me musing about something else. Isn’t it funny how books and the writing styles in them vary so dramatically? I read an excellent book this week and another that I’m not so crazy about. In this instance, the one that I loved also happened to be well written, which is always a nice convergence, but on the other hand, the not so great read is not so well written, almost guaranteeing my dislike. However this trend is not something that I find holds water i alln other cases. Similarly I’ve read and very much ENJOYED poorly written books because the plot and story lines are as gripping as they are engaging, and by the same token, have found some grammatically well written books (even in the same genre) an absolute bore. You have to ask yourself what exactly is it that draws us to a book and holds us captive in it’s wordy spell….
This week I read:
The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines (book 1 in the Vincent Boys series) was a lovely read; sweet and sexy but the couple is very young.
Holy Frigging Matrimony by Emma Chase is a novella that fits in between Tangled and Twisted and a stunning little filler in this great Tangled series. I love this writer and I found these books to be funny and refreshing.
Wait for You by J Lynn was a great read but a tad more intense than the books I’ve read from her before. She’s definitely still on my favorite’s list.
Currently I’m reading:
Devoured by Emily Snow, book 1 in the Devoured series. So far, I’m not in love but I’ll review properly next week when I’ve read through the whole thing.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Here is a little something from Big Bang’s super smooth Walowitz to put a smile on your face 😉
Happy reading, ladies.
