Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
I hope y’all had a great week! I really am on a fantastic reading streak at the moment. I think I’ve added more books to my favorites list in the last month than I have since I’ve started reading this genre. Yay!
The Romanian readers will be pleased, I’ve just updated the Romanian chapters. Please find the newly translated chapter 3 in the sidebar. Thank you, Paula!
We had more casting news this week as more supporting roles get filled for Darker…..
Robinne Lee will be playing Ros, Christian’s 2IC.
And Fay Masterson will be acting as the lovely Mrs Jones.
This choice surprised me. I always pictured Mrs Jones an older lady.
Then, Cosmo has some fun with Fifty. Check out this cute article featuring Rebel Wilson from Pitch Perfect fame….
Moviepilot has some ideas on how to improve the Fifty franchise with Darker…
Needless to say, the old “more raunch” nugget features heavily. It’s not a suggestion I’m personally on board with. For Fifty, I’m definitely in the less-is-more camp, but I think we can almost be certain that more lovin’ is on the cards. I got this link from the Fifty Shades of Grey News Facebook page.
I love this movie poster from the Laters Baby site:
It makes it all seem so real… 🙂
This week I read:
Some Sort Of Crazy by Melanie Harlow, book two in the Happy Crazy Love series was another great read from this Frenched spin-off series . I adore a book with the perfect balance of hot, sweet and longing.
Adore by Nina Lane, book four in the Spiral Bliss series, was fantastic. Apart from the flawless, touching writing, the content is extremely pertinent. I easily identify with the real-life scenarios. Where a lot of the books in our genre can almost qualify as fantasy for all their hot, OTT lovin’, Nina’s books are so very real, the characters so plausible as they struggle with issues I can almost guarantee you see in your very own life. The wonderful thing is though that it doesn’t distract from the heat between the characters. It just goes to show, you can write a stunning, exciting series without the despotic billionaire falling for the vulnerable virgin. Not that I don’t love that particular story – as you all know, but it’s just nice to see a little realism.
Some Sort Of Love by Melanie Harlow, book 3 in the Happy Crazy Love series, was good, but not quite the standard I’ve come to expect from this writer. Perhaps I’ve just read too much from her lately.
Currently I’m reading:
Break The Sky by Nina Lane, a spin-off book from the Spiral Bliss series.
Seeing as I’m from the Land Down Under, I’ll leave you with a little creepy crawly from home…
Have a great weekend, girls. Don’t forget to share your best reads with us!
