The STD causes problems for the police and others
The Beauty Volume 3 - Jason A. Hurley,Je... The Beauty Volume 3 - Jason A. Hurley,Jeremy Haun

 

 

An STD called “The Beauty” causes peoples’ looks to improve but at a cost, especially as someone has found a way to kill them. This set of stories deals with various characters as Detective Vaughn investigates the murder of various Beauties and Joe continues to find out about what people want.

An interesting concept, this series is worth a look – well-written and clearly illustrated.

 

Engaging and enjoyable, this is well worth a read.

Actual Tears
Lethal Bayou Beauty - Jana Deleon

After I read the first book in this series, I just HAD TO read the second.

 

Either I have a great imagination or Jana Deleon is great at painting a picture. I am sure it helps that I am able to relate the "Geritol Mafia" to some older women in my family.

 

I laughed out loud at the antics of Gerty and Ida Mae. I will be sure to read the next book as well. I recommend this series to anyone who likes to imagine that getting older will never mean backing down.

 

Happy Reading!

Junie B. Jones Is a Beauty Shop Guy - Barbara Park,Denise Brunkus

 

This is the first book I have read in this series.

The antics of Junie B. Jones are reminiscent of Ramona Quimby, but the first person narrator really got on my nerves. Having Junie narrate the story with all of her age-appropriate grammatical errors was very irritating to me. It really took away from the experience. It made me like Junie less. She just annoyed me through most of the book.

The story itself was okay. Pretty predictable and not all that unique.

Okay read. Very quick.

Reading progress update: I've read 111 out of 375 pages.
Your Beauty Mark. All You Need to Get the Hair, Makeup, Glow, and Glam. - Dita von Teese

For some reason, my copy runs to 375-ish pages, rather than the 256 listed here against the book. Pass. Who knows. No clue why. Such is life.

 

What I do know is that Dita had a grounding in reality before she chose the path of burlesque. And this is a life of art. Human art. In fact, a collection of different types of art, itself wrapped and mixed in a package that becomes Dita vonTeese.

 

She is perfectly aware that she occupies a space where few of us actually practically desire to go; such entrapments that are hers come at a price which I, for one, would not like to pay. However, she laces this with practical advice that all of us can follow. In other words, if you simply went out and bought the products that she listed... then you'd be missing the whole point. As she says; what works for her, might not work for others... but then hands over the keys to unlock your own journey, without breaking the kind of piggy bank that many of us endure these days.

 

So far, I have been through skin and am mostly my way through perfume. Perhaps the most poignant was the money she wasted with celebrity dermatologists, and found her saviour instead in someone who knew their science and was more interested in people, than fame.

 

 The dedication to the beauty of her chosen era can best be summed up in the kind of experience that might be found in the opening of an iPhone. The box that glides open gently under the pull of gravity. The new phone smell that teases the nose. The placement within the packaging and the very arrangement of the minimalist pieces themselves. Get to grips with that, and the effort and dedication that went behind the making of that experience, and you'll have a starting point to what drives Dita to the path she has chosen to follow.

 

Mixed in are segments of history that I never knew; and practical, sensible advice on things like diet and skin care.

 

This is a heavy, but worthwhile read so far.

The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty’s Prince
The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince - Serena Valentino
Villians, Book 2

I Picked Up This Book Because: Picture it: I’m walking in Barnes and Noble one day on a hunt for anime for my niece, I pass these four beautiful covers on a table. My mind immediately says “YOU NEED TO READ THAT! I don’t know or care what it is it’s pretty and villains, yes all systems go” Then I looked at the back of the book and didn’t like the price. So naturally I look in the library. My library doesn’t carry them. Then I get a 60 day trial to Kindle Unlimited and looky what’s available. I’m all over it. It’s the first thing I get.

The Characters:

The Prince/Beast:
Gaston, Witches, Cogsworth:

The Story:

Unfortunately my WHY was more interesting than this story and that was boring. I DNF’d at 40%. We were very in the beast/princes head for much of this time which I detest. I prefer character to interact much more. The only bit we did get was with Circe (the witch who cursed him) and her 3 witch sisters who were unflattering and confusing.



The Random Thoughts:

DNF so no rating
