Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
I hope you’re having an awesome long weekend break. I can tell you that I, for one, am super grateful for a rest after a grueling ten weeks of school.
I always love to see the new ways in which FSOG affects the world. Can you imagine what it’s like for a random guy saddled with the surname Gray, now?
Whahahaha! Too funny. I sure as hell would take a look! 😉
This week I read:
Manwhore by Katie Evans, book one in the Manwhore series, was…. complicated. I’m sure I’m gonna’ ruffle a few feathers with my review, but damn, it was just so off the mark from her usual brilliant style that I can’t let it slide. Firstly, let me say that I was utterly in love with her previous, debut series; Real. The characters were engaging, the writing (language and technical details) were great despite her taking some literary risks, and the emotion flowed in buckets. It made the story seem, well…. real – alive with the love, drama, and hotness we so crave. Manwhore, on the other hand, was a massive disappointment. The main female protagonist was an absolute flake and technically; I don’t know what went wrong. There were just so many mistakes or grammatical oddities that it started to grate on me. And I can look past A LOT provided the story has me gripped but I felt as though I had to fight through the chapters. When you pay a premium price for a premium writer like Katie (the ebook was around the $9.00 Australian in my neck of the woods where normally we pay around $3), frankly, I expect, at the very least, good editing. Having said that, I did love Saint, the male lead, and was it not for him and a strong finish (a cliffy), I would not pursue this series any further. As it stands, I feel she got back into her groove in the dying chapters of the book which was its saving grace. I’m really hoping she’ll bring the goods in book two and have a serious chat with her editor along the way. Sorry, girls. So far, I’ve only given it two and a half stars on Goodreads.
Incandescent by River Savage, book one in the Knights Rebels MC series was a poolside read of the Alpha male motorcycle variety.
Currently I’m reading:
Deep by Kylie Scott, book four in the Stage Dive series, so far, is right up there with the rest of this writer’s awesome reads. I love this series; funny, poignant, and hot. How can you go wrong? I would definitely recommend this series. I especially loved book two. Mal, the drummer, rocks!
On my shelf I have:
Knight and Play by Kitty French, book one in the Knight series.
This one made me smile: realism…
Have a wonderful weekend with lots of fabulous reads, girls 🙂
