'90s Playlist - Brighton Walsh,Lorelie B...
I liked the idea of this, I am a 90s girl after all. This was in general your typical cute and fluffy- with a tad bit of smut thrown in. Quite nice for reading in between. I was wondering if the authors chose the songs or if they were given the songs? Gotta say that they all got the song/story absolutely right.My Strongest Weakness by Brighton Walsh
Song: If by Janet Jackson
Enjoyed My Strongest Weakness very much. Well at least the second half. I wasn't so sure about the first half- a wee bit to insta-lust/love and all that.
Still a neat, smexy little story that reminded me of the breakfast club.
A rather grown up version of it naturally
3.5 Stars Worthwhile by Audra North
Song: Half a World Away by R.E.M
Super cute and sweet.
A wee bit of an insta thingy going on- but it really didn't matter to me.
I loved Stuart! The smut and well the entire cute & fluffy thing.
Perfect fit for the song!
The only negative thing: it ended a bit too fast and way to abrupt for me
4 StarsCreep by Lorelie Brown
Song: Creep by Radiohead
I actually love love love this song. And while I found the story a bit too short and way to insta- It was so 90s, so in theme with the song- I actually didn't care that much about the very suddenness of all of it. Though it is my biggest issue with this story. I am totally a 90s girl- somehow Brown invoked that time in every detail, more importantly Creep would totally be the theme music for this story. Colour me amazed.
3.5 StarsSmells Like Teen Spirit by Rebecca Grace Allen
Song: Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
I think this is my favorite story so far. I luv James. Adore him in fact. And while there was total insta-lust. In fact things felt much less insta in compare to the previous stories... I like the scene, this is set in as well. I found Rory a tad too over the top at times- though I did like her. One thing though? Artisan sourdough bread? I could be wrong- but I think that's a thing of the 21st century. In fact I am not sure that the whole 90s feel came through in this one.
4 StarsThe Belle vs. the BDOC by Amy Jo CousinsSong: Possum Kingdom by The Toadies
SO how to rate this? Cause honestly it's not really my cup of tea. I mean the romance part. I liked the story line and the writing style. BUT I am not into F/F.
And again... the story and song just perfect.
I am giving it a 2.5 Stars- but with a heavy heart. Cause I love the idea behind it, just not for me.Little Red Thong by Jennifer BlackwoodSong: The Thong Song by Sisqo
I don't have fond memories of this song, so I was a tad worried about this story. But the story was cute, your classic brothers-bestie kinda. Loved all the characters.
Blackwood got the whole 90s feel right, made me feel like I am very young again.
