Goddess of Love (and vanity....and no modesty)
Goddess of Love - P.C. Cast

Okay, this series is my guilty pleasure but this one fell so flat I wanted to barf.

 

The main character is called Pea. Seriously. She's a grown woman of 30, and she is called Pea. She has curly hair and doesn't have enough brains to know not to brush her hair. That's curly hair 101. She brushes it constantly and wonders why it's a frizzy nest. She also thought she could learn style and confidence from a book. 

 

Venus is supposed to help her, but all she seems to know about is shallow fixes. Shoes, clothes, hair. There was no depth to this "Goddess". She is also prone to asking strangers if they pleasure themselves frequently. 

 

This was a teen movie (girl doesn't know how beautiful she is) with a lot of dicks thrown in. I'm so disappointed. The only character I liked was Vulcan....until he spied on Pea pleasuring herself and decided to get off himself. It was all way too creepy.

Standing Alone: An American Woman's Struggle for the Soul of Islam (Plus) - Asra Q. Nomani

88 pages all saying about the same thing: radical Islam hates women. Which I didn't even need to read one page to know that. There are certainly a lot of interesting things here, and I enjoyed what I learned, especially about the roots of Islam and how it's changed. The issue is that while this is technically well-written (the author is a journalist and knows her grammar), it's not very absorbing. It's repetitive, and reads like an article rather than a book. Half of these 88 pages could have been trimmed out without losing anything essential.

My Thoughts

 

The beginning started out fairly ok, I was liking well enough…and then the paranormal stuff came into play and with that; came the confusion...it was too unbelievable even for paranormal.  Then it just went downhill quickly from that point.  When I realized I wasn't comprehending anything, I knew it was time to DNF, especially since I didn't care.  Also, I don't know what it was exactly, but it seemed like it changed narrative at times, or maybe it was just a typo…I'm not sure. 

 

 

Will I continue this series? Nope, not even…

DNF: The Unhandsome Prince by John Moore
The Unhandsome Prince - John Moore

 

 

DNF'd at page 50 because life is too short. This book starts out cute enough. A young girl of the lower class works tirelessly for days kissing frogs, picking leeches from her legs and getting mud drenched in the hopes of breaking a curse and earning herself the handsome prince. Well, she finally kisses the right frog but when he transforms he's not the handsome prince she was promised and she is pissed off. Her hopes forever dashed, she decides she doesn't want to marry him. He's not too find of the idea either considering how rude she's being about his looks.

 

The beginning was cute, witty and sarcastic but then it meandered down a different path and I lost interest. They hook up with a sorcerer's daughter and go on a road trip and I just wasn't feeling it.

Spindle Fire - Lexa Hillyer

I tried Spindle Fire. I really did. I gave you 50% to pull me in, which is more than fair, and you just couldn't do it. 

 

I'll sum that 50% up that I did read for all of you, bookish friends.

 

Confusing fairy curse.

Teen angst.

Sisterly bonds.

Budding romance??? (Kind of?)

More teen angst.

Random fairies doing things that don't seem to fit with the plot.

More teen angst.

WHALING SHIP!

More confusing fairy curse.

More kind of budding romance...

FAIRY QUEEN IS ANGRY.

Possible war?

SO MUCH CONFUSION.

 

And it was at this point that I gave up. I really did try.
