I can see why this is popular, like shades of gray for sex. The Middle Aged woman is bored with her middle classed life. This is a self help guide disguised as a novel. The techniques are real cognitive therapy ones. I thought the husband was having an affair, not afraid of not being good enough for his improved wife.

The One | John Marrs

With all the ancestry DNA available now, would be interesting if there was a soulmate gene. These are a couple of examples of matches. I think I would want to know. Probably a very bad idea though. It‘s a slippery slope fate vs choice. (-♾ for using the word Frisson)

Hulder really needs to quit drinking. He makes terrible relationship decisions drunk. The whole story is dark and depressing. The power some people have, when you don‘t believe the kids, when the kids can‘t trust the system to protect them. It‘s sad.

This novella is basically an outtake of what takes place in one of the novels. Adds a little but isn‘t really necessary.

This is the 6th and final book. I‘m kind of annoyed about how it ends. I‘d really like to know who his father was though.

The older brother killed their lousy parents and hurt his sister. Now she‘s getting adopted by profilers and he‘s killed his foster parents. Obviously it‘s all about him.

The protagonist has schizophrenia, or at least the doctors tell him he does. Just when you think you know what‘s real and what isn‘t, you meet the children of the earth. Are they just a cult or something more?

I recently read one of the latest in the Kate Daniels main series, and these two show up to help out. This explains so much actually.

Why does one say 7 and one 7 1/2? Oh well, this book confused me because of the timeline aspect. It reminds me A LOT of an episode of Black Mirror, and not in relation to time travel. In the end I was actually kind of disappointed how the murder mystery actually panned out. So run of the mill.

What I know of genetics from several years of biology class is that this book is plausible, which makes it extremely creepy. What if you could just slap on a cream and become a supermodel free of any genetic medical issues? We go as far as plastic surgery, what‘s a little fiddling around with DNA?

He‘s a hot powerful guy with PTSD and she‘s determined to use her power even if it exposes her family who has been trying to hide. There is something bigger going on than she is aware of.

I found this really boring. The son of one of two gay men learns his best friend is gay. What a couple of students do next & his mother‘s attitude makes you wonder if we still live in the stone ages.

I‘m just surprised he never realized the bad guy wanted to recruit him. That was my first thought when he says you aren‘t like the others. You learn more about the background of The withered which is interesting.

What do suicides have to do with horrible murders? He did threaten the demons so he had to expect something to happen. He might even have a girlfriend.

Asking the important questions here. Why am I not surprised a guy originally asked it either? A little blurb on each animal after answering if it farts or not. Women of course do not fart,ever.

If you‘re interested in Beethoven,this book is for you. Otherwise I was annoyed at the use of the word frisson and amazed at how much sex Sarah is getting. Plus I‘ve been to Prague and it never felt like it rested on a portal to hell to me

Family comes with a price, he has to go speak to a body on a shipwreck under the sea, where, surprise, the scroll is too! Mostly we are interested more in the golem‘s story and it‘s not that he‘s related to mermaids, which are also very, very real.

Djinn are real. I believe this is a crossover as later 2 books are listed for these characters separately. Gideon meets a woman.

As usual the character is a chosen one so he needs this novel to properly level up his power in. Also it‘s mostly to get to know the older brother of the Fae who tattooed his scars years ago

I hate it when everyone is keeping the main character in the dark. The cursing stones themselves were interesting, but mixing fae, King Arthur and Druids together was kind of meh. Plus the main character learned to use a sword practically overnight.

The title should have tipped me off. A murder where everyone is a suspect, especially the protagonist, because the victim had It coming.

I didn‘t see the romance in everyone cheating on each other. I didn‘t really relate much to Greta either. Normally I like time travel, but I‘m just not into the world wars or New York I guess. This doesn‘t improve my feelings about ECT for depression.
