January Wrap-Up
The Lady and Her Monsters: A Tale of Dissections, Real-Life Dr. Frankensteins, and the Creation of Mary Shelley's Masterpiece - Roseanne Montillo
The King - J.R. Ward
Anno Frankenstein - Jonathan Green

 

 

 

The Lady And Her Monsters by Roseanne Montillo

 

My Review

 

The book follows Mary’s life right from the moment of her birth and touches on every source of inspiration that led to the writing of Frankenstein. Just a heads up, Mary Shelley's life was no bed of roses!

 

 

The King (Black Dagger Brotherhood #12) by J.R. Ward

 

No reviews because the only reason I read this series is because my OCD won't let me stop. They have gone from bad to shoot-me-please-shoot-me-now worse! I mean, there was actually a Lion King scene ripoff in this installment: remember, when Mufasa raises Simba on the hilltop to show off the new heir? That!

 

 

Anno Frankenstein (Pax Britannia #7) by Jonathan Green

 

My Review

 

I mean, imagine what it would take to make a book with monsters, time travel, and steampunk elements fail this miserably for me!

 

The first two were chunksters and considering that the only time I get for reading is the 45 min to and from work, I'd say not bad.

Yeah, no
Unborn - Amber Lynn Natusch

Unborn pretty much exemplifies everything that I find unpleasant about paranormal fantasy; not sure why I finished it. First off, we have a lone woman, an exemplary special girl who has untapped powers surrounded by a whole bunch of dudes. Then said dudes spend all kinds of time treating other women like shit, and this is somehow a reflection on the women and not the dudes. Then, and this is my special favorite, most of these dudes are the main girl's brothers, but they persist in treating her like a sex object, and this is funny. Because incest is funny. Why are you being such a buzzkill? 

 

Oh, and it ends on a cliffhanger. I know, right? 

 

This is the sort of book that makes me appreciate this book's antecedents, stuff like Black Dagger Brotherhood and the Fever novels. I made some fun of those at the time, but actually the way those series navigated some seriously problematic shit was pretty deft. BDB has the whole dudes-only feel, but the banter is honestly amusing, and the whole thing ends up being an exploration of masculinity that doesn't have to hate on every woman but the protagonist. Fever, well, Morning turned the cliffhanger into an art form. Unborn does neither of these things well.

Yes, yes, yes... and more YES!
Blood Kiss - J.R. Ward

The Warden has done it again... finally. I admit to liking  The Shadows, alot, but admit that it wasn't like the series I had grown to love. A matter of fact, the most recent couple of books were good, just not what I wanted. This one, on the other hand is great, and reminiscent of the books I loved from J.R. Ward. 

 

We are back at the training center with a new group of trainees. Remember when John Michael and his group of trainees were there? That is like this. The brothers are training them. There are females in this group, a major developement for their population, and one of those females is an aristocrat. Big, big deal people. Said aristocrat is pining for a floor layer's son, also in the program. 

 

We also get a better understanding of Marissa, Butch's shellen, in this. Her and Butch's relationship is examined. I never really cared for either Butch or Marissa until this book, now I love them. 

 

I feel like I have visited with old friends, and met a few new ones to boot. 

 

This book will make absolutely no sense what so ever if you haven't read at least some of the original Black Dagger Brotherhood books. If you haven't, what the hell are you waiting on?

Blood Kiss - J.R. Ward

This book has all things I love about the BDB. It reminds me of the earlier books. The bromance, yes, the bromance is back. I want to tongue kiss this book.
