Red Queen by Christina Henry

Paperback, 313 pages
Published July 12th 2016 by Titan Books
Series: The Chronicles of Alice #2
Fantasy
Own

I did like book 1 more, cos that one was more, well horror but not horror. I mean it was not scary horror, but it as horrific. This one did not have the same tone. This was a journey book.

Alice and Hatcher has made it outside. But outside sucks. Ash and death. Giants and goblins. And magicians fighting for power. Outside is baad.

Sidenote. I want to know how it all fell apart. Why is this world such a  horrible place?

They are so not right for each other, so wrong that they are right. She is messed up, he is beyond messed up. Perfect fit.

This is another one of those where I can't say a lot. But the writing is light and the book is only 300 p long. A walk in the park. I liked that. Some easy weird Alice re-telling.

Sidenote. Please more in this world.

I enjoyed it. I really like her works.

The land outside of the Old City was supposed to be green, lush, hopeful. But the verdant fields are nothing but ash and hope is nowhere to be found. Still, Alice and Hatcher are on a mission to find his daughter: a quest they will not forsake even as it takes them deep into the clutches of the mad White Queen or into the realm of the twisted and cruel Black King. The pieces are set and the game has begun, and each move brings Alice closer to her destiny.

The True Bastards by Jonathan French

Paperback, 592
Published October 8th 2019 by Crown
Series: The Lot Lands #2
Fantasy
Own

I liked it, but at the same time it did feel boring at times, like several times. At times it felt mostly ok.

I really liked book 1, it was grim and effed up. Then book 2 came with a new voice. Suddenly Fetching was the main character, and I just do not like her. She is angry, and angry, and angry. I know your lot in lot sucks, but eh I just did not care for her.

And then the story got boggled down with her past, and it was a looooong way there.

I miss Jackal.

I can only see the negative things when I write this. I just miss the awesomeness of book 1, which made it one of the best books last year.

Hmm, I really should give it a 2 because I honestly do not feel like reading more in this series. But I will give it a 3, for trying. Too nice

Fetching was once the only female rider in the Lot Lands. Now she is the leader of her own hoof, a band of loyal half orcs sworn to her command. But in the year since she took power, the True Bastards have struggled to survive. Tested to the breaking point by the burdens of leadership, Fetching battles desperately to stave off famine, desertion, and the scorn of the other half-orc chieftains, even as orcs and humans alike threaten the Lots' very existence. Then an old enemy finds a way to strike at her from beyond the grave--and suddenly only one, faint hope for salvation remains.

A Heart of Blood and Ashes by Milla Vane

Book 1 in the Gathering of Dragons series
Narrated by Nicole Poole
Publication date Feb 4, 2020
Running time 15 hrs 16 min
Published by Tantor Audio
Fantasy
In exchange for an honest review

I do have mixed feelings about this one. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but at the same time I do not like Maddek. And that first meeting was so dang rapey.

Plus everything else he does afterwards does make me think that Yvenne should dump his sorry barbarian arse.

Yes, very mixed feelings!

Fantasy world where someone named the Destroyer had reeked havoc decades earlier (what was up with that? More please.) Sure countries, gods and such are mentioned, but I would call the world building light. And please do not make me spell anything, oh audio, you are evil when it comes to fantasy. I had to look up both their names.

Maddec is a commander that helps contain some creatures at a border. Then his parents are killed and he is MAD. Which brings us to Yvenne who he wants to murder and throw off a wall. This guy is so unhinged. If he thought about it for 2 seconds he would realise that she would have nothing to gain, while her family had everything to gain. But he does not think about it, not for weeks. He is an arse to her for so long, all while they do it.

Mixed feelings people. I mean she is all sure, I will have a baby by him so he can kill my family so she is in on it. But love? He does not trust her. How can there be love. Also why would she fall for him, he is such a d*ck.

They are trying to get away for her family is a bunch of guys that needs to die! Violently.

And sure, they fall in love and will build an alliance to save the world.

I did like it! I promise. I just did not ever fall for Maddek. I liked Yvenne and her sharp tongue, and her desire to be more even though life has left her weak and crippled.

I guess, either you liked a certain GoT barbarian or you felt like me that he was a creepy rapist, and I guess that tells you how you will feel about this book.

And hey I do want to read more and I did feel a bit disappointed to see that the next book is about 2 strangers.

Narration
She did a great job with everyone. It felt so light you know, even in the face of death and danger.

A generation past, the western realms were embroiled in endless war. Then the Destroyer came. From the blood and ashes he left behind, a tenuous alliance rose between the barbarian riders of Parsathe and the walled kingdoms of the south. That alliance is all that stands against the return of an ancient evil—until the barbarian king and queen are slain in an act of bloody betrayal.

Though forbidden by the alliance council to kill the corrupt king responsible for his parents' murders, Maddek vows to avenge them, even if it costs him the Parsathean crown. But when he learns it was the king's daughter who lured his parents to their deaths, the barbarian warrior is determined to make her pay.

Yet the woman Maddek captures is not what he expected. Though the last in a line of legendary warrior-queens, Yvenne is small and weak, and the sharpest weapons she wields are her mind and her tongue. Even more surprising is the marriage she proposes to unite them in their goals and to claim their thrones—because her desire for vengeance against her father burns even hotter than his own . . .

February 11th: Romantic Reads Recommendations

I meant to do it with covers, but arghh, my laptop died on me yesterday (not to worry, I just had to charge it, but still). It did not get done then and now I am in a hurry.

This is so hard because I am not going through all my books. But then it does feel like a shame not to mention earlier ones, but then I am so uncomfortable cos Luci refuses to leave my lap.

Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh, if you are in the mood for pnr and some hot psy-wolf action
Hot and badgered by Shelley Laurenston, for some funny pnr where everyone is insane

Any historical romance that is decent enough is always filled with feel good romance to me!

Can I just say Grace Draven and Jeffe Kennedy for fantasy romance?!

Heidi's guide to four letter words by Tara Sivec and Andi Arndt. Omg LOL! Funny contemporary romance

Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh, cos she can write everything!

Irresistible you by Kate Meader for some sports romance

Through the fire by Kate Ruggle for some romantic suspense, and trust me, you do not want to live in those mountains. Crazy stuff happens!

I did mention a few so that is good enough,

OH! ANY decent PP variation always gives me the feels :)

Carole's Monday: The call of the wild by Jack London

Author: Jack London
The Call of the Wild
Title: The Call of the Wild
Genre: Classics, Fiction, Adventure, YA
Format: ebook
Pages: 172 
Published: 1903
Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon freebie)



Based on London's experiences as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness and his ideas about nature and the struggle for existence, The Call of the Wild is a tale about unbreakable spirit and the fight for survival in the frozen Alaskan Klondike.



I guess this is becoming a movie this month so it sparked my interest to read the book. I feel like I read this back in the day. Not sure...or maybe I just had read excerpts.. 

The story follows Buck who had the life of luxury with his human family. One day he is dognapped by someone who needed the money. Buck is sold and finds his way in the wilderness pulling sleds for gold prospectors. He becomes progressively feral in the harsh environment, where he is forced to fight to survive and dominate other dogs and his new world. 

This had me in tears a few times. Poor Buck! Poor other dogs! Heck I even felt bad for John (who was the only human I actually liked in the end). Humans suck!!! These poor dogs. Yes, they were proud of themselves and liked pulling the sled. But there is a limit. I was happy the moment Buck got away. 

HOW is this a kid's book? Lots of violence and death. Maybe I'm more sensitive to it because it is about dogs, but ugh my heart. Poor things treated like slaves for the greed of men. There ARE a couple versions of this book floating around...so maybe kids read the edited version. The version I read was pretty graphic in some points. I know as a kid I would've cried as much as I did at certain aspects. Especially the part with the ice. Damn fools! *shakes fist*

This was really, really good and it really captured my attention. The author, as usual, has a way with his writing that captures you. I was totally hooked from page one and got this done in two sittings (damn work getting the way of my reading life). 

I loved the messages of perseverance in this. Lovely! 

Honestly, I doubt I'll watch the movie anytime soon, because after watching the trailer the story seems SOOOOOOOOOOO different. And I feel it takes away from Buck and his journey to becoming one with the wild.

In the end, I highly recommend this. There is some darkness, but there is hope and the end will get ya! It is quick and will get you right at the heart. 5 stars.

Darcy in Hollywood by Victoria Kincaid

Kindle Edition, 235 pages
Published June 26th 2019 by Meadowbrook Press
Modern PP variation /romance
Own

I could have enjoyed it more, but, no, modern Darcy was quite the arrogant asshat.
And Lizzy looked down on everything.

Darcy told her his nanny used to hit him, and she answers him, that sucks. Really, really, wtf Lizzy?

Bingley was quite the idiot too. I know he is the well Bingley! But. what an idiot.

Lydia was older here so the Wickham thing was just silly when Lizzy was all you are 19! Well he is 24. Wow. Ok so there is another twist too, but I like it more when he really is a creep that should be castrated.

Silly misunderstandings, and well in the end I just found most unlikable. There were good parts, so it can get a ok for that, barely

Rich and arrogant movie star, William Darcy, was a Hollywood heartthrob until a scandalous incident derailed his career. Now he can only hope that Tom Bennet’s prestigious but low budget indie film will restore his reputation. However, on the first day of filming, he nearly hits Bennet’s daughter, Elizabeth, with his Ferrari, and life will never be the same. Okay, she’s a little sarcastic, but he’s certain she’s concealing a massive crush on him—and it’s growing harder to fight his own attraction….


Elizabeth Bennet has a lot on her plate. She’s applying to medical school and running the studio’s charity project—while hoping her family won’t embarrass her too much. Being Darcy’s on-set personal assistant is infuriating; he’s rude, proud, and difficult. If there’s one thing she dislikes, it’s people who only think about themselves. But then Elizabeth discovers Darcy has been doing a lot of thinking about her.


She might be willing to concede a mutual attraction, but events are conspiring against them and Darcy subject to constant public scrutiny. Can Darcy and Elizabeth have any hope for a happy ending to their Hollywood romance?

Only a promise by Mary Balogh

Mass Market Paperback, 400 pages
Published June 9th 2015 by Signet
Series: The Survivors' Club #5
Historical romance
Own

This turned out to be very dull.

I did like it at first, because it felt real. 2 people who do not know each other enters a marriage of convenience. Their first time is real. No sudden great passion. Just lying back and thinking of England.

But I never felt they them fall in love, as this is a romance and they would.

Instead it was dull.

He had his issues, she had her issues *yawn* Disappointing


Ralph Stockwood prides himself on being a leader, but when he convinced his friends to fight in the Napoleonic Wars, he never envisioned being the sole survivor. Racked with guilt over their deaths, Ralph must move on . . . and find a wife to secure an heir to his family's title and fortune.

Since her Seasons in London ended in disaster, Chloe Muirhead is resigned to spinsterhood. Driven by the need to escape her family, she takes refuge at the home of her mother's godmother, where she meets Ralph. He needs a wife. She wants a husband. So Chloe makes the outrageous suggestion to strike a bargain and get married. One condition: Ralph has to promise that he will never take her back to London. But circumstances change. And to Ralph, it was only a promise.

Book 2 was great, and sure this book was good, but as a conclusion to the trilogy I wanted more.

I still do not like Zaire, she is too much in your face.
I do like Amalia, she will become a great politician.
I still do not think she and Marcello belongs together, they have zero chemistry
I do still love Kathe, he is awesome, they should totally be together, even if they can not live together.

Gotta find an evil guy and get rid of him.

Hmm, not enough of what made book 2 great.

Still, good, but not really the ending I wanted. I wanted more.

While winter snows keep the Witch Lord Ruven's invading armies at bay, Lady Amalia Cornaro and the fire warlock Zaira attempt to change the fate of mages in the Raverran Empire forever, earning the enmity of those in power who will do anything to keep all magic under tight imperial control. But in the season of the Serene City's great masquerade, Ruven executes a devastating surprise strike at the heart of the Empire - and at everything Amalia holds most dear.

To stand a chance of defeating Ruven, Amalia and Zaira must face their worst nightmares, expose their deepest secrets, and unleash Zaira's most devastating fire

February 4th: Do you take advantage of free chapter previews?

Nope.

Maybe I should, I mean a lot of times I know already from page 1 that it is a no go, so a free chapter preview would help. But, I do not know, it sort of feels like cheating. I just want to buy a book and hate or love it.

But I SHOULD check them out. Cos it sucks when you buy a book and then by page 2 you are already bored.

But then where is that free chapter? At the best part? Cos I want the beginning to see if I can slog through or not

Carole's Monday: Have my baby by Taryn Quinn


Have My Baby (Crescent Cove, #1)
Author: Taryn Quinn

Title: Have My Baby
(Crescent Cove #1)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: ebook
Pages: 288 
Published: September 25th 2017
Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon freebie)




Have my baby.


That was what my single dad best friend Seth said to me while I was waitressing at the diner. 


His little girl wants a sibling. But Seth is a workaholic millionaire and doesn't have time to meet someone.

Someone who won't screw him over, like his kid's mother. 

Only problem is this someone has secretly been in love with him since high school. I've been hiding it forever, not wanting to risk our friendship.

Sleeping with him is my biggest fantasy. And I've fantasized plenty, being a virgin. Another thing he doesn't know.


Now I have to make the biggest decision of my life.



Is having a no strings attached affair just to make a baby better than never having him at all?





You know how I love my Amazon freebies ;) 

The story follows Seth and Ally. The two have been friends since High School. Years have passed and they are still friends. However, Ally hasn't done much with her life because she was taking care of her sick mom while Seth married, had a baby, and divorced. Seth wants another baby and the only woman he trusts is Ally. So...why not ask her to have his baby?

Okay SETH. I wanna smack you a million times. You are a dummy. BIG dummy. First off...your reasons for wanting a baby is stupid. "My kid wants a sibling". OKAY. That is not enough of a reason to bring a baby into the world and possibly ruin your years-long friendship with Ally. Also, how could you NOT see Ally loves you and you love her????? Ugh!!!!

And you Ally. You are just as blind as Seth. You guys love each other darnit! *shakes fist* And why don't you talk to him and tell him how he is making you feel!!!!!!! UGHHHHHHHH

I had many issues at the beginning and I could NOT stand Seth and his dumb reasons for asking Ally to carry his baby. Adopt a baby if you wanna spend that much money. Sighs. BUT things did get a wee bit better as the story went along. Yes, I am still shocked! There was a lot of skimming until about 80% of the book when real feelings and complexities started pouring out. FINALLY. This is what I wanted from these two. 

Overall, this was a rough book at first. I had so many issues, I stuck through and the last chunk was really good. Not sure if I wanna read book 2 though....but I am curious about Sage. She was interesting. I'll give this 2 stars.

In exchange for an honest review

I should have written this two day ago!

Dryden is planning to marrying Lisbet, since she has land he wants. And she would be thrilled since he is a marquess.

But then he meets Phoebe, a school teacher with no connections, and she is just fascinating. Yes, duh, man, it's because you want a real connection and not some silly chit who can smile and say thank you.

But he needs to restore his family's honor, and Phoebe knows this.

But they so belong together! Idiots.

And then Phoebe takes the ton by storm. Which is strange. Cos she is  nobody and suddenly everyone is fascinated by her, hmmm, straaange.

Yes there are some evil idiots working in the background. I just want to slap them all.

My thoughts are so jumpy when I did not write this at once, if you noticed ;)

And then they lived happily ever after!

I enjoyed it

Narration
Justine Eyre is always good!
She is worth it every time!

Ruthless, cold, precise, Julian Spenser, Marquess Dryden, tolerates only the finest-- in clothes, in horseflesh, in mistresses. And now he's found the perfect bride, the one whose dowry will restore his family's shattered legacy and bring him peace at last: the exquisite heiress Lisbeth Redmond.

She's about to play with fire...

But one unforgettable encounter with Lisbeth's paid companion, Phoebe Vale, and the Marquess is undone. This quiet girl with the wicked smile and a wit to match is the first person to see through the icy facade to the fiery man beneath. But their irresistible attraction is a torment as sweet as it is dangerous, for surrendering to their desire could mean losing everything else they ever wanted

Series: The Harwood Spellbook #2.5
Fantasy
For review

This was a short one. A brief interlude back into the world.

It takes place during one night. Juliana is studying to become a magician. In a world where only men become magicians. She was secretly engaged to Caroline, who wants to become a politician. And a politician can only marry a magician. So if they want to be together, this is the path they must take.

But because of events in book 2 Caroline path to stardom looks grim, and she does not want to take Juliana down with her. Omg people, you are so stupid. If you love each other, then be together! Careers be damned. Just love each other and be happy.

I really like the Fae, I want more about them, they are wicked evil.

I can't say a lot other than they will find their way out of darkness. A nice little story. 

For just one moonlit, memorable night, Thornfell College of Magic has flung open its doors, inviting guests from around the nation to an outdoor ball intended to introduce the first-ever class of women magicians to society...but one magician and one invited guest have far more pressing goals of their own for the night.

Quietly brilliant Juliana Banks is determined to win back the affections of her secret fiancée, rising politician Caroline Fennell, who has become inexplicably distant. If Juliana needs to use magic to get her stubborn fiancée to pay her attention...well, then, as the top student in her class, she is more than ready to take on that challenge!

Unbeknownst to Juliana, though, Caroline plans to nobly sacrifice their betrothal for Juliana's own sake - and no one has ever accused iron-willed Caroline Fennell of being easy to deter from any goal.

Their path to mutual happiness may seem tangled beyond repair...but when they enter the fey-ruled woods that border Thornfell College, these two determined women will find all of their plans upended in a night of unexpected and magical possibilities.

In exchange for an honest review

Like I said, I like YA fic in audio that tugs on the heartstrings. Though I did wish this could have tugged a bit more.

David has cystic fibrosis and is at the hospital. I never really got to know him, sure he is sick, sure he wont live long, but still...

Jamie struggles with depression. Her father killed himself. She was homeschooled and she loves art. Her I do know. I felt so sorry for her.

They meet as she works as a volunteer. They get to know each other, and she takes risk, omg no, do not take risks Jamie!

It gets really hard. I felt for her, and I can't say more because spoilers.

It also got weird as, well, spoilers!

I liked it, I will tell you, no tears. No sadness.

Narrators. I do not think I have listened to either narrator before, but they did well. I enjoyed listening to them.



David Scheinman is the popular president of his senior class, battling cystic fibrosis.

Jamie Turner is a quiet sophomore, struggling with depression.

The pair soon realizes that they're able to be more themselves with each other than they can be with anyone else, and their unlikely friendship starts to turn into something so much more.

But neither Jamie nor David can bring themselves to reveal the secrets that weigh most heavily on their hearts--and their time for honesty may be running out.

Joint Discussion: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop



Hello all! Carole and I will be discussing "Lake Silence" by Anne Bishop.I am in red and Carole in blue

Lake Silence (The World of the Others, #1; The Others, #6)




Author: Anne Bishop

Title: Lake Silence
(The World of the Others #1) (The Others #6)
Genre: Urban Fiction, Paranormal, Fantasy
Published:  March 6th 2018 
Format: Audiobook
Pages: 402 


Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shapeshifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget . . .



After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki’s have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what’s out there watching you.



Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe–one of the shapeshifting Others–discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the man’s death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, things get dangerous–and it’ll take everything they have to stay alive



And so we continue, this time without Meg and the gang.

I was sad to see them go….but I am also excited to see more of the world and some other folks. 

When I first read it I was all whaaat?! But now of course I knew that this would be another place, another gang. And I liked it. It was home, and yet it was not.

It was different and I liked it. I thought the cast members were fun. I liked Victoria a lot. She was a lot like Meg in some aspects, but human and abused in a different way. Poor thing. 

Really? I did not feel she was like Meg at all, except for well being prey ;) But Meg at least fought back, while Victoria retreated into herself. I really felt for Victoria. Her husband sure did a number on her.

I think Meg was stronger and was able to fight back near the end. I’m sure if we got more time with good ol’ Vickie she would toughen up. She has a lot of issues to get through. I want her to have a HEA with Julien! I loved them! They were perfect. 

True. I do think she would have toughened up! And yes I hope she gets a happy ending. She deserves it, it will take some time, but they will get there. I know they will.

Yess. I think they will. They both have loads of demons to weed through. But I think they will get together someday. Maybe we’ll see it in a future book. ;)

Nah, I doubt she will come back to them :/

Maybe through passing? Like someone comes to town for whatever reason (like stay at the resort) and we get a glimpse of them and babies? ONE CAN HOPE!

From what I know, she doesn’t even plan on returning to this universe.

Super lame. I like this universe. There is SO much she can do with it! So much story and so many characters. I get wanting to take a break and explore her other ideas/etc, but I think she needs to occasionally give us something here. Even a short story. There are still so many stories and world-building. 

She did return to another world she had not written in ages (I need to try and read that one again, I dnfed it, cos it was effed up.) So I do hope that she will return once again. I LOVE this world. LOVE.
Mmmm I have heard that before (maybe it was you lolll). I am curious though. But yes, I want more from this world. I love it. Honestly….I think the world needs another purge of bad humans. Gather them up because from this it looks like some bad ones got away. SMH. Dumb, dumb humans. Esp that ex of Vickie’s!!! Why would you cause so many issues after what JUST happened to all those towns!?

Gawd! I know. PURGE THE HUMANS. They do not deserve to live. They are so So effing stupid. UGH! They never learn. They always think they can trick the others. But at least there are always good ones too that try to live with The Others, because they know that is the only way to survive.

They are fools. The Elders are always watching. There is something always there. Like those cute little creatures that like carrots (blanking on what they are called)! So freakin’ cute. 

Blanking too. Freaky little buggers. Loved them!
I also, as always, loved the vampires! I guess it was nice not to have wolves around, even though I missed them

Yess loved the vamps!! We got to see such an array of characters and beings. It was such a treat!

I guess I just love the voice Alexandra gives the vamps :D She was amazing, as always.

The narrator is amazing as per normal. She really brings them to life! I honestly can’t imagine these stories without her. She just embodies everyone and everything! So good!

It would not be The Others without Harris! This was actually the first that I listened too and has not read. It was the one that made me want to re-read them by listening

Really? Not surprised to be honest. After reading book 1 I think I would’ve abandoned these. Not because the writing is bad or anything. But just listening to it with her just amplifies the story! 

I liked them, I really liked book 5. But listening made me love them. And that is all cos of Harris! I am glad I listened to book 6 and did not read it. It gave me a whole other experience.

I’m glad you made me listen to them after my reading book 1 ;) I am excited for the next one. 

Told you from the start ;D But I am glad you listened to book 2 and saw how wonderful the world is. I guess on to book 7 then, and I promise you, it will make me MAD. Arfghggg effing humans!

EEEEKKKKK I am nervous. LOL I feel like I’m going to be mad too! D: Dang those humans! Idiots the lot of them. 

Yay, re-listen! It has only been a year or something, lol

Hahaha. I mean - we could do a romance for Valentine’s month. ;) And save that for March! 

Whaat! But you are right, it would be more fitting with a romance. Sobs.

Also, if you have not started this series, then READ IT. LISTEN TO IT. DEVOUR IT!

Hahahaha we can debate and see how we feel ;) I am torn. I wanna get started on the next one...buuut. Sighs. :/
AND YES LISTEN TO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The end?
