Reading progress update: I've read 66%.
All Good Things: The Split Worlds - Book Five - Emma Newman

I'm having quite a lot of fun with this one, so I thought I'd share some of the quotes I'd highlighted.



“I’ll look through the desk, you look for a safe.”
“The deeds won’t be in there,” Cathy said, heading over to the nearest painting of bleak moorland.
“I agree. I just want to see what he keeps in here.”


Catching a glimpse of the mundane clothing previously hidden by the large cloak, her uncle raised an eyebrow. “Catherine, dear, I assumed that all was not well in your marriage, considering your eagerness to expose your father-in-law’s crime, but…trousers? Are you quite well?”


“I would find that very difficult, my Lord. I feel most passionately about this.”
He seemed interested again. “How passionately?”
This was it, the thing she feared the most. The moment of self-sacrifice she had always known would come. “I would be willing to…to go to extraordinary lengths to earn your support for our freedom, my Lord.”
“Would you be willing to have your soul forged into a little diamond pin I could wear on my cravat?”

Oh, Lord Poppy.

Her Christmas Guardian by Shirlee McCoy
Her Christmas Guardian (Mission: Rescue Book 2) - Shirlee McCoy


Former army ranger Boone Anderson immediately senses danger when he spots Scout Cramer and her precious little girl while holiday shopping. Then two cars suddenly give chase in the parking lot—kidnapping the child. His worst suspicions are confirmed, and professional instincts propel him into action. Having lost his own infant daughter years before, Boone is determined to reunite the beautiful single mother and her missing child. But when a secret from Scout’s past finally catches up to her, she must work with her self-appointed guardian to save her daughter. Before the kidnappers cancel Christmas for all of them…permanently.

Mission: Rescue—No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes (from Goodreads)

Series: #2 in the Mission: Rescue series

Rating: 3 stars

First things first, BOONE IS PERFECTION. Okay, no, but seriously, I adore Boone. He is my favourite Love Inspired Suspense guy thus far. He’s sarcastic and loves food and God. What else do you need in a guy?

This was good for Love Inspired Suspense, I’ve read much worse. But to be honest, when the book is centered around a single mother whose child has been kidnapped, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that while in a blind panic trying to find her child, she has the mental capacity to fall in love? I don’t know, it’s never really sat well with me. Plus, in the same notion, the stakes are different so while it’s terrible (no child should have to go through that) it doesn’t live up to the suspense part of the name, because from what the readers are getting, nothing really suspenseful is happening. All that is happening to the child, but because we’re from the point of the parent(s), we don’t get that. We just get blind panic.

The fact that Scout (I love this name by the way) had a bad head injury and insisted on never following Boone’s orders, putting herself in danger countless times, kind of irked me. I get it, her daughter has been kidnapped and that’s terrible, no parent or child should have to go through that and the fact that they do sickens me, but she should’ve rested in the hospital and let HEART and the FBI do their jobs, because putting herself on death’s doorstep is not going to help Lucy.

The Hazel Wood - Melissa Albert

Everyone is supposed to be a combination of nature and nurture, their true selves shaped by years of friends and fights and parents and dreams and things you did too young and things you overheard that you shouldn’t have and secrets you kept or couldn’t and regrets and victories and quiet prides, all the packed-together detritus that becomes what you call your life.

Love, love, love!
Bloodshot (2012- ) #1: Digital Exclusives Edition - Duane Swierczynski,Manuel Garcia,Arturo Lozzi

Bloodshot is a guilty pleasure: super violent, but not evil.   He's trying to do the best he can, but also can't remember his past.   He's been experimented on, and has nanites that heal him from almost any injury.   


And I love him so damn much.  


In this, his amnesia is abused, by implanting false memories of families and his service in the military.   These emotional hooks are used to manipulate him into running suicidal missions, again and again and again.   When the different memories all crash into each other, Bloodshot starts to realize what's happening to him - and once again must find a way to escape this experimentation. 


It's twisted, and it's right up my alley.

Takio #1 released by Icon Comics on May 1, 2012. - DC MARVEL MALIBU IMAGE DARK HORSE

In fact, I hated it.   Of all the Bendis free books, I found this one to have the most grating characters.  I flat out hated them, and wish there were a way to delete this from my Comixology account...
