I had a good weekend. How about you?
Time to play around with some graphics for an upcoming project. Time to clean dad’s house one last time (auction is scheduled for 11/12). Time to have lunch with a friend. Time to have dinner with another friend visiting from Florida. Time to visit with my dad every day. Time to do laundry. Time to have leisurely mornings (very important for us non morning type people). Time to grocery shop (one of my least favorite activities). Time to just putter around.
What I didn’t have time for was to read. BooHoo! I need a reading vacation. Preferably somewhere warm. I’m working on making that happen, although realistically probably not until February or March. By then I will be more than ready for some warmer weather. So maybe I should aim for November.
What a charming book. I kept imagining reading this if I was a young girl. I know I would have been pulled into the story immediately. I would have identified with Lily. I know that because even now I enjoyed the story. I was cheering for Lily and Brand and Seth throughout the book as they had various adventures.
I particularly enjoyed the fact that there wasn’t a lot of graphic battling in the book. I’m not a big reader of fantasies and I really don’t need all the graphic details of bloodshed. Bristol did a great job of describing every scene in a way that even children could enjoy it.
My only disappointment with the book was that there seemed to be too many (more than a few) either missing words or duplicated words. It slowed down my reading because I would have to re-read a passage.
I gave this four out of five stars because the story was captivating, the book was easy to read, and the characters felt like friends.
I was looking for a quick trashy book to read and stumbled across this. It fit the bill.
This book (more of novella length than novel length) was written entirely as a series of text messages. The texts are between Megan and Ryan, her lover. And between Megan and Steven, her husband.
Fortunately it was a short book because the texts started sounding all alike. It had a rather predictable ending. There was some graphic sex talk in it so it is definitely not a YA book.
It was an okay read for a quick book to fill a couple of hours. Not a great book. But not an awful book.
