Walk of Shame | Lauren Layne
post image
Mehso-so

2.5 Stars

Why so low?

1. So cliché. You could look up the definition of cliché and find this book there.
2. Such a possessive love interest (liked that the protagonist was wearing a sweater so no one else could see “his” shoulders.
3. Went from hating each other to engaged in like 3.4 seconds

Wallbanger | Alice Clayton
post image

Starting a new review series called “Revealing Romances” where I read romance novels with covers that we avoid, believing they‘re “trash” because of their name or cover. My idea is to review these books so you don‘t have to judge them by their covers but can see if their embarrassing titles or covers are worth getting past. My first is a fairly well known romance, Wallbanger. #RevealingRomances #CoupleofReviews

julesG That's a cool idea! I don't shrink from "in your face" covers or titles. Strangely, I'm often put off by the covers that look like my grandmother's cheap romance novellas; okay, alien hunks and too much muscle puts me off too. ? 8mo
BookNAround It took me a long time to get past the over the top covers. Now I care not one iota. I guess that the benefit of age. 😂 8mo
scowler1 This is what Kindles were made for! My wife ONLY reads novels with trashy covers. She always felt judged at the bookstore. Didn't stop her though, our shelves are still full of them 😀 8mo

Heir of Fire | Sarah J. Maas
post image

So I tend to really enjoy Maas‘s stories once I‘ve gotten into them, but man can her writing drive me crazy! How can the water taste new and ancient? Also I‘m sure ancient water tastes bad, not good. It just makes me think of stale water. And why doesn‘t her editor pick up some of this stuff? Do they just go “yeah this sounds pretty” and that‘s that? Love the stories, don‘t love the nonsensical descriptions.

Nessavamusic She is a young writer. I‘d blame the editor on that one. 8mo
Naj This is also her standard style of describing something: Ellipsis followed by 2-4 adjectives. I read half of Throne of Glass and once I picked this up it became really difficult to not notice this on every single page. 8mo
Erinreadsthebooks 😩😣😭 That kind of writing works my nerves and hurts my heart 😁 8mo

While I rest and relax and watch Big Bang Theory. I thought I would quickly review this book.

I honestly don‘t understand the hype around this book. It doesn‘t really go anywhere nor make much sense so I really wouldn‘t recommend it. I didn‘t find it deep or touching or moving or anything. It was just about a spoiled rich lady hooked on way too many drugs.

Dracul | Dacre Stoker, JD Barker
post image

This holiday season I haven‘t read much. In fact all I‘ve read in December was a Christmas novella I found on the Audible Romance package. I‘ve mostly been hanging out with my favourite triplets (aka working) and binging Grey‘s Anatomy (5 Seasons in a month, #noshame). The last few days before Christmas I plan to change that by having my own mini #readathon. On the list: Dracul, My Year of Rest and Relaxation, Elantris and The Wee Free Men

Ok so the author is my fiancé @chikin511 (Christian Hanna, he independently published a book called Eleven Stars, you should look it up on Amazon Kindle!) but I‘m still counting it. Also I‘m marking 50 books read because I‘m on 46 and I will reach 50 by the end of 2018.

A book with a nest on the cover

@chikin511 and I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher‘s Stone several months ago. Last night we decided to finish the series together before the wedding. We added up all the chapters of the last 6 books and realised there were exactly as many pages as there were days until we got married. We will be doing a #buddyread through Harry Potter to have a way to see the time progressing until the wedding. #171daystogo #CHATwedding2019

Herschelian Just finished reading his 2nd novel - Crazy China Girlfriend - hilarious comedy of manners with some of the same characters as Crazy Rich Asians, lots of shopping, conspicuous consumption etc. Set more in China and Hong Kong than before; some wonderful “in” jokes.
