Hello there, lovely ladies🙂
Happy spring to my fellow Southern Hemispherians. Here’s looking forward to long, sunny days and cool cocktails!
Rumor has it that we might see the Darker trailer in September. I, for one, am getting very impatient to see Erika’s vision come to life. From the stills we’ve seen, I feel confident that she’s stuck closely to the book. This article from Digital Spy has more info and a video featuring Dakota chatting about filming Fifty Shades of Grey. #QuietlyOptimistic
If you are in a country celebrating Father’s Day today, like we are here in Aus, give the dad in your live a big smacker on the cheek for being awesome! And while we’re speaking of fathers, these peeps who creatively put together the edits of Jamie and Dakota are just incredible. Check out this fabulous one:
They look so real. I saw this one on Pinterest, but credit to the owner.
I also found this on the marvelous net. It would make a very cute gift for a couple, don’t you think?
Sadly, I’ve not found any reading joy this week. It’s very frustrating flitting from one book to the next, and not finding something to sink your teeth into. Hopefully the new month will bring wonderful things.
This week I read:
Push the Envelope by Rochelle Paige, book one in the Blythe College series, was a disappointment. I wasn’t expecting GREAT things – I was warned – but I so love a good college romance I couldn’t resist trying. The premise had potential, but the writer spoiled it with pin-balling conversation streams between characters that gave me whiplash as it fell flat on its face. It had no detail, no soul, no meat to its bones. It gets a big no from me, and it went straight to my DNF pile.
The Storm by Samantha Towle, book 3.5 in The Storm series, was a novella that was almost great. The original books were very good, and though this short gave us another glimpse into the delectable Jake Wethers’s life, I felt a little short-changed by the lack of closure.
Currently I’m reading:
Ransom by Callie Hart, book three in the Dead Man’s Ink series, is STILL good, but I’m struggling to get into it. I can only spend a short while on it before I get restless, prompting me to search for something else. I’ll review properly when I’m done, but it might be a while. Please don’t take my reluctance as a bad sign. I’m just not feeling it right now. At least the cover is not too hard on the eyes😉
The Ground Rules by Roya Carmen, book one in The Rule Breakers series. I’m intrigued by this premise, and so far, the writing is sharp and clear. Here’s hoping…
Along with the onset of spring’s fresh blooms and crisp, green leaves, September also promises the release of new tales. Let’s take a look at what my favorite Goodreads email brought this week:
Yippee! Lot’s of new goodies! (As always, please note that the links aren’t live.)
I’ll leave you to ponder the costume choices of some folks…
Wow, huh? Not sure whose mom signed off on that one! LOL!
Anyway, have a happy week, girls.
