Bloom (Thorn Tattoo Studio) by Leslie North
Bloom - Leslie North

 

Never has the tattoo world been portrayed quite like this.  Ms. North brings sexy back with a vengeance with the bad boys of art.  The DeRose brothers are building a business the brash, sassy and sensual way.  One brother at a time.  This time around Antonio gets to be the brother of the hour.  On the hunt to expand the business, he loses his heart along the way.  Evie and Antonio are keeping it hot in more ways than one.   It's only fitting that a DeRose man meet his match in a bad girl.  A tattooed spitfire that lives by her own rules, making them up as she goes. Taming the bad boy has never been as tempting or as entertaining.

Book Review For: SWEPT INTO LOVE by Melissa Foster
Swept into Love (Love in Bloom: The Ryders): Gage Ryder - Melissa Foster

'SWEPT INTO LOVE' by Melissa Foster is Book Five in "The Ryders" Series . This is the story of Sally and Gage. I have not yet read the other books in this series so for me this was a standalone book.
Sally lost her husband some years ago leaving her with a Son to raise. Within a few months after his death she meets Gage along with being her friend is her coworker. Gage has even helped her son Rusty when he needs a father figure / friend.
Now Rusty is 20 years old and Sally is more on her own than when they first met. Gage has been pretty open about his feelings for Sally and that he would like to have a relationship with her. Sally on the other hand finds Gage attractive ...to much so she thinks but also values his friendship with her and her son. Sally fears are that if they have a relationship and they break it off then her son would be hurt by the lost of Gage.
This was a more mature romance story but nerveless a really good one!
Enjoyed it!

Weird Ideas: "“Falstaff: Give Me Life” by Harold Bloom
Falstaff: Give Me Life (Shakespeare's Personalities) - Harold Bloom

“What makes us free? What makes me free is the capaciousness of Shakespeare’s soul. He is the knowledge of what we were and of what we have become.”

 

In “Falstaff: Give Me Life” by Harold Bloom

 

“Weird" is the word that comes to mind after having finished his take on Falstaff. We all know about his fixation on Falstaff. No problem with that. I’ve also a kin interest on Hamlet. So, what? My problem with Bloom lies on a different plane. “Weird Ideas”. That’s Bloom all over. His ideas can be interesting - and, at their crankiest (as in “A Map of Misreading”, Shakespeare: Invention of the Human and his Genius book) quite funny - but there's far too much of Bloom the frustrated bard-oracle in them, which is why they fail to stand up beyond the books in which they appear. Show him a half-decent poet and he'll construct around him a new view of human history centred on an ancient Gnostic text and full of juicy prophetic names for things already perfectly well named (e.g. "The Chaotic Age" for the 20th century). There's an element of trying to out-crazy the crazy totalising schemes of Blake or Yeats. Bloom trying to out-poet the poets, or at least match them in inspired, over-learned nuttiness. 

 

 

If you're into Shakespeare, read on.

June 2017 Reading List
Diary of an Accidental Wallflower - Jennifer McQuiston
Not My Father's Son: A Memoir - Alan Cumming
In the Midst of Life - Jennifer Worth
Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir - Kelle Hampton

Once COYER starts on the 17th, I will be reading mostly from the reading list I created. I am going to try my hardest to use the books from the list for my BL-oploy plays.

 

The base library starts its summer reading program on the 19th. The theme this year is Reading by Design, with STEM being the focus on weekly activities and books read at the various story times. The kids have their own accounts for this program. Son wants to read more beginner reader books (he will be a first grader at the end of August); daughter wants more fantasy and fairy tales retellings.

 

I want to regain my BL-opoly mojo get to $100 bank balance by the end of the month (a $32 increase). I seem to put the game on the back burner in May with RT con and the big read. I still need to read Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuiston, a BL-opoly book from the end of May.

 

There are a couple of books that I want to read that are not related to BL-opoly or COYER. Those books are to keep me progressing on the Pop Sugar Challenge. Not My Father's Son by Alan Cummings (prompt - family member term in the title), In the Midst of Life by Jennifer Worth (prompt - Interesting Woman), Bloom by Kelly Hampton (Pop Sugar prompt - by/about a person with a disability).
