Dead Man's Hand (anthology) - John Joseph Adams

a Weird West story full of superheroes, and supervillains of course, called ‘The Golden Age’ by Walter Jon Williams. a lot of fun.

 

two stories left in this book, before I move on to some Horror stories, in The Invisible Eye, alternating with the tales in The Sergeant’s Cat, which have been enjoyable so far.

Tales From Watership Down
Tales from Watership Down - Richard Adams

This was an enjoyable collection of short stories about the rabbits of Watership Down. We get to read about what they were up to before the end of the first book which caused me no end of tears. I honestly have to say that reading about  El-ahrairah in the first story was fine, but after that I found myself getting bored. The book didn't pick up for me until we were following Hazel, Fiver, and the others who were setting into Watership Down.

 

I do think it was good to see how the rabbits were tested due to a cruel winter, a female rabbit who used to be the Oswla who disagrees with Hazel and others, and a former rabbit who still feels some sway to General Woundwort. 

 

 I still have to hard pause when reading this book sometimes to figure out what the rabbits mean when referring to certain things. This book came with a dictionary in the back though which was helpful. 

 

The setting of Watership Down still feels magical to me in this one. We have the rabbits being led by Hazel-rah and how the warren seems to work due to all of them working together at all times. The stories mentioned above though do test the rabbits at times. I really wish that Adams had included a story of Watership Down after the death of Hazel though.

 

The ending was a little flat to me. I just felt like the stories as a whole didn't flow very well from one to the other. I was expecting something better or a bigger picture to the plot.

Great Story and Characters
Packaged Husband - Noelle Adams

Chelsea offered to help Owen masterson repackage his image to attract higher profile designers for partnership with Mastersons Department Stores. Chelsea felt after twenty four years of being the pretty one was getting old. Melissa was the  one who makes things happen without even trying. Sam was the smart one. . Chelsea was the youngest and spoiled one- the pretty one. The spoiled princess, Chelsea can be counted on to look good and most people don’t try to look beyond that. Pop was her grandfather He founded a successful regional chain of restaurants - Pop’s Home cooking. Pop is the only family the sisters have since their parents died when Chelsea was eight . Chelsea admits to being spoiled and doesn’t try to deny it. But it’s time now for chelsea to live her own life. Pop was old fashioned as they come. Chelsea doesn’t have much of a temper. She’s a good natured person. She likes to laugh and understand people. Chelsea’s best friend is Eva who she had known since kindergarten. She called after lunch with Pop, she went shopping but bought nothing as she wanted to find the right dress for her interview with Owen. when eva asked what happened at lunch Chelsea just said Pop was disappointed she didn’t find a good job and disappointed in everything else about her. He also said Chelsea wasn’t grown up enough to get a husband. Owen tells her at her interview he would like Chelsea to be his trophy wife for one year if not that he would take the three month dating contract she had made up. Chelsea and owen go on a month of dates than take off to vegas to get married to make it look romantic . Chelsea even had Owen sing her Can’t Help Falling In Love With You  and recorded it on her phone to show designers Owen wasn’t an old fuddy duddy.

I loved this story.It was a fast paced, sweet, romantic love story with just the right amount of anst. Definitely a new favorite of mine. I loved the plot also. I loved how Owen changed especially with Chelsea as the had more time together. I also loved the ending. I also loved the relationship chelsea had with her two sisters as well as Eva. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book including the couple of twists and I highly recommend it. .

Dead Man's Hand (anthology) - John Joseph Adams

enjoyed the Ken Liu story, my introduction to the author’s work. only four stories left in this Weird West Collection, and I already wrapped Straight Outta Tombstone, my rival book of similar tales. I had such fun running two “duelling” short story collections (one short story between each novel I read), that I’ve decided to keep going with that set-up, but I decided to have each collection represent a different genre...so I can keep better track of how much I’m enjoying each grouping of stories, without everything mushing together.

Packaged Husband (Trophy Husbands, #3) by Noelle Adams
Packaged Husband - Noelle Adams

 

 

Noelle Adams never holds back. She keeps it real when it comes to matters of the heart and healing of the soul. Through her characters she can deliver lessons of life, stories of hope and acts of courage without getting overly preachy and with a sense of humor. In Packaged Husband, an act of desperation has everlasting results for Chelsea and Owen. The key to understanding an Adams novel is to listen with your heart.
