Femme Fatale
Femme Fatale (Little Black Classics #15) - Guy de Maupassant

Femme Fatale combines the title story and three other short stories from French author Guy de Maupassant. I can only say that they felt rather explicit and openly contained lesbianism which quite surprised me since it was being written in Victorian times. Something else I notices was that it had a French-ness that I can't really explain any better.

The stories themselves were okay, but none of them left a real impression with me. Rather, they felt quite flat, but I'm not sure some of it was lost in translation. Since I don't read in French, it would have to be in translation again, so I don't think I will be reading more of this author.

Femme d'Adventure: Tales from a Wild Life (Adventura Books) - Jessica Maxwell

This is one i picked up at the library either for free or for 10 cents. I didn't end up liking it very much. A couple of the chapters were relatively interesting, but almost half of it was about fishing, which bores me. I didn't like her writing either. I think she tries too hard with her comparisons and at times they didn't make sense to me. I think she tried too hard to be funny as well. There are some really bad puns in this book.

 

Also, the title itself annoys me because it's "Frenglish".

Femme - Marshall Thornton

"So tell me about losing your virginity?" I asked. (...) 

"Boy or girl?"

"Oh Gawd! Boy! I hope you've blocked sex with a girl from your mind. Memories like that can be so scarring."

 

Thanks, but no thanks.

Oh How I Laughed
Femme - Marshall Thornton

FEMME was funny and still told a story. I loved this ride and my friends know how hard it is for me to find something that does both for me. Lionel is someone I would describe as femme with moxie and not a flake. Dog is beefcake with brains without a clue. When they're together their differences seem too big but you know how life is. They work. I found all the secondary characters were fine and helped keep this tale moving. I did wish there had been a publishing choice to highlight which POV we were reading. Marshall Thornton didn't use sex as a filler. We got a story. Why five stars? When I take the local to have more unobstructed reading time because a book has sucked me in and I'm laughing out loud not caring who I interrupt, that's five stars.

Best Line: So few of us are truly who we are.

Femme
Femme - Marshall Thornton Resembles a typical high school comedy, just with twenty-something characters. You get the whole set-up: the outsider girl (or femme boy in this case), the slightly dense jock, the bully, his apparently devoted following, the mouthy best friend, the awkward but ultimately loving family.
While I'm not too font of high school rom-coms, Femme had enough depth to keep me going. And femme guys are such a rarity in m/m (and I think even in gay romance/fiction) that I have to give Thornton some credit simply for writing this story.
It could have used another round in proofreading, however.
