Guess who has a new favourite author?
Nights at the Circus - Angela Carter

This was bloody amazing!

 

The writing was gorgeous, the braided in stories colorful and as bizarre as you could expect, and even when at their most tragic, always running this underground hilarity out of sheer cynicism and pragmatic pizazz. All seasoned with a good dose of feminism and magical realism.

 

I laughed a lot, but it actually ran me through the whole gamut of emotions and I did not want it to end. Loved it, will read more by the author, and will buy whatever of hers I can find around here.

Death of a Charming Man by M. C. Beaton (audiobook)
Death of a Charming Man - M.C. Beaton

Series: Hamish Macbeth #10

 

As usual, Hamish Macbeth gets pulled into a murder mystery, except he's the only who thinks a death occurred, and the only other death (which of course he finds suspicious) gets written off as an accident by everyone except Hamish. This book also showcases some reprehensible attitudes and beliefs that Hamish holds through his relationship with Priscilla. It's the kind of thing that I find particular disappointing in a woman author writing in the 1990s. I think I'm done with the series. He treated Priscilla abysmally, and the mystery is solved more through accident than cleverness.

Love for a wild land
O Pioneers! - Willa Cather

This one tugged at my heart.

 

All of the ingredients did: the hard life on new countries, the stubbornness of immigrants, the strong girl and all the quirky people you may find around her, the small town tragedies.

 

Most of all this love for the land, and the strange, difficult to explain ties one develops to it when you fight it and work it and live it.

Tall, Dark and Charming - Erika Wilde

Aiden Stone and Daisy Parker work together at the Roth Owens Agency.  Aiden is somewhat of a playboy and never intends to settle down.  Daisy is just looking to be successful in her career, after a bad breakup.  After a successful client meeting Aiden and Daisy meet up in the hotel bar and end up having a drink together.....or a few....and then the flirting starts....which quickly leads to an agreement of a one-night stand with no strings attached.  And what an explosive one-night stand it was!  Fanning self!

Imagine everyone's surprise when Daisy ends up pregnant!  As Aiden and Daisy work through the news of her pregnancy, their relationship starts to change.  Both of them start wanting things they never knew they wanted and together they finally can find their happy ending.

I just freaking loved Aiden!  Tall, dark, sexy and a dirty talker all wrapped up with cute dimples on top!  You just can't help being smitten by him.  Daisy just wanted to find a happy ending after her idiot ex and never would have thought it would have been with Aiden.  I just adored this story and highly recommend it!

All the fucking stars
The Ordinary Princess - M.M. Kaye

The story was endlessly amusing, the stabs at fairy tales conventions were perfect, the romance was cute and lovely, and the illustrations were gorgeous.

 

I only took this long to read it because I did not want it to end, and I sooo want a hard-copy, even though it doesn't seem like there exist a Spanish edition. I'd be willing to translate it for free to make it available, that's how much I loved it.
