Chances | Jackie Collins

Pickpick

My foray into Jackie Collins' work continues with the first of the Lucky Santangelo series. Though most of this one sets up the backstory of her father Gino and their nefarious business empire. Very good, though I was caught off guard by how long it was. I think it definitely could have been edited down without sacrificing the plot. I'm looking forward to more of Lucky as an adult now that the set up is out of the way! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Love Killers | Jackie Collins

Ooh, this was FUN! I saw a trailer for a documentary on Netflix about Jackie Collins being a badass boss bitch who dared to write gritty books about women, sex, and crime while a bunch of people clutched their pearls at the audacity, and I just KNEW she was a woman after my own heart. This was my first, but it most definitely will not be my last. I inhaled this tale of three women avenging their friend's murder using a powerful weapon - sex.

Mollyanna I devoured the Lucky Santangelo series when they came out. So good. May have to do a reread. Jackie was a gem. 12mo
swishandflick @Mollyanna I'm on the library waitlist for the first one! Can't wait 😆 12mo
TravelsWithBooks I watched her documentary Lady Boss, loved it, but have no desire to read her books though. You‘ll probably enjoy the doc as a fan, more than I did! 12mo
swishandflick @TravelsWithBooks Thats good to hear! I almost watched it last week and then ended up deciding to give one of her books a go first so I had a frame of reference. Love that it was good even for bookworms not interested in those particular books! 12mo
Mollyanna I hope you enjoy them! 😀 12mo

On Sex &The City ,Samantha Jones asks why can‘t women have sex like a man? This is the 1968 version. Collins had her ears & eyes open during those celebrity parties , this book is dishy, a bit mean w/ some ewww moments.Over the top , don‘t know how many times the word bitch appears.But like finishing that pint of ice cream , not good for me but I couldn‘t stop.😄😬Her 1st book, many cringeworthy moments but still glad I read it.Wild for its time.

Ruthiella I love your ice cream analogy! 😂 1y

⭐️⭐️
Yes, I gave this 2 stars and a pick. The writing is nothing to well, write home about, BUT it serves it‘s purpose. This is book 2 in the series and I will read book 3. I always have a book I read to fall asleep to. Usually it is not something I am too invested in otherwise I would stay up reading all night long. Usually it is something silly and light. But it worked. I was amused and fell asleep!

I‘m not having much success with my #bookspinbingo choices this month. I didn‘t realize this book was book 14 or 15 of a series and prior knowledge of characters and events is necessary to understanding this story.

LibrarianRyan Yeah a series that needs to be read in order. The longest book is the first one but it moves fast and is a lot of fun. I have been contemplating restarting them. 2y
