WINTER'S BONE by Daniel Woodrell, narrated by Emma Galvin
Winter's Bone: A Novel (Audio) - Daniel Woodrell,Emma Galvin

I'm not feeling like a full review today so I'll limit this to only a few comments.

 

*The Ozarks in which this book takes place seem to have nothing in common with the OZARK Netflix show.

 

*I have no doubt in my mind that life in some areas of the Ozarks is as brutal as it's depicted in this book. Poverty, drug use, tight family units, and long-held multi-generational grudges are just part of the miserable lives examined here.

 

*I couldn't help but feel for 16 year old Ree who just wanted to join the army and get the hell out of there. Due to her mother's mental illness and her two young siblings, her hands were tied. It's hard to escape family.

 

*I thought this book was savage with sharp, vivid prose-sometimes so sharp it stabbed me right in the heart.

 

*I enjoyed WINTER'S BONE, as much as one can enjoy a story this violent and merciless. I look forward to sampling more of Daniel Woodrell's work in the future.

 

*Recommended for those with the wherewithal to stomach the brutalities of this rural, mountain life. You have been warned!

24 Festive Tasks, Door 11 - Russian Mother's Day
Star Dust (Fly Me to the Moon, Book One) - Genevieve Turner,Emma Barry

Russian Mother's Day

 

Book: I chose Star Dust (Fly Me to the Moon #1) by Emma Barry and Genevieve Turner. The heroine is a single mom of two kids.

 

Task #1

The mother of all writerly sins would be telling not showing, especially in romance. If the author keeps telling the reader that the couple is falling in love, but the reader doesn't see one example of that love and trusting building, then the romance fails. I want to look back on a book and remember scenes of action, conversation, and progress in the relationship, not paragraphs of the heroine or hero thinking to themselves that they are falling in love or having a side character say they are falling in love.

Tequila, Tequila by Emma Hart
Tequila, Tequila - Emma Hart

 

 

She's a wild one. With the face of an angel and the spirit of a hellion. One reckless night has her in over her head and could cost her heart. Emma Hart dazzles with her flirty tales of friendship, fire, laughs and forever. Tequila,Tequila has spitfire written all over a saucy heartwarming barrel of laughs. Luke and Aspen are adorkably clueless in an amazingly entertaining sort of way.

Review Blitz - Royally Yours

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add To Your TBR: GOODREADS

 

 

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. 

It’s a big deal. 

When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. 

What she isn’t…is married. 

It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. 

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. 

Even Queens. Especially them. 

 


** 

 


Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home. 

And a sacred promise keeps him there. 

To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. 

 


** 

 


Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. 

Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. 

This is theirs. 

 

 

ROYALLY YOURS is LIVE on ALL platforms!  Get ready to swoon, laugh, blush, sigh and smile! We are beyond excited to share this story with you!!

 

 

 

  

Royally Yours (Royally, #4)Royally Yours by Emma Chase
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #4 in the Royally series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Princess Lenora needs to be a wife. Apparently being the royal is not enough. With all that is going on in her life, why does this have to be the priority?

Edward is the long lost brother of her best friend. When he meets her, it is like being struck by lightning. Instant attraction - for them both.

While this series is more than HOT, this book starts out with more of a cool tone. The ups and downs that happen to this royal gem are more familiar than most would want to admit to, I have a special love for this one who has been through so much. There is so much heart in this book, and when the heat begins..... oh MY!
