College Boys (Men of Holsum College #1) by Daisy Harris Review
College Boys / Diva and the Frat Boy - Daisy Harris

When soccer star Chris Fischer moves next door to an openly gay classmate, he doesn't realize the wall between their rooms will be so thin he'll hear his neighbor's every move. But soon he and Peter become friends, and Chris is intrigued—imagining what happens on the other side of the wall. Active on the Queer Student Council, Peter Cohen wishes he wasn't so damn hot for his straight neighbor. He can't tell if Chris is flirting or in denial or what, but Chris's innocent overtures lure Peter into flirtation that throws his world into chaos. Peter doesn't want to date a closet case, but he desperately, passionately wants Chris. Soon Chris must choose whether to run away from his new feelings or embrace a relationship with the guy he loves. And Peter must decide if he can give his heart to a guy who hasn't yet figured it all out.

 

Review

 

 

This is a hot and sweet romance. It is a great tale of falling in love and takes particular care with showing how someone comes to understand their sexuality varies and there is no one correct way.

 

We get to see Chris' process while Peter supports him. There is a sweetness to this romance and you will believe in how in love they are.

 

Peter is a great character and we could have spent more time with him outside his relationship and relationship angst. Chris is a great guy as well.

 

I love the message of finding community in the book.

 

A nice start to a new adult series.

Wyatt (7 Brides for 7 Soldiers) by Lynn Raye Harris
Wyatt (7 Brides for 7 Soldiers - Book 4) - Lynn Raye Harris

 

Immovable object meet bulldozer.  From the moment they meet Wyatt and Paige set off sparks.  Strong personalities have a way of making their presence known. Sound familiar.  Like author, like characters.   Ms. Harris grabs hold of the imagination and works her way into emotions little by little.  There's a seduction going on. The bigger the theatrics, the bolder the characters and the more thrilling the ride. Living on the edge is a dangerously, heady experience.

Halloween Bingo - Romantic Suspense
Definitely Dead - Charlaine Harris

My pick for the Romantic Suspense square was Definitely Dead, the next book in the Southern Vampire Mysteries.

Halloween Bingo - Werewolves
Dead as a Doornail - Charlaine Harris

I continued the Southern Vampire Mysteries with Dead as a Doornail. This book had a number of supernatural beings in it, including vampires, werepanthers, fairies, shifters, and weretigers. And werewolves, of course. The werewolves featured prominently with Sookie getting pulled into a dispute over who will be the new packmaster. I used this for the Werewolves square.

Kenny Duane Harris read the Light in the Attic
Light in the Attic - Shel Silverstein

 

 

This book of poems by the late author Shel Silverstein contains crude illustrations by the writer himself but the humorous text and the easy reading was compelling enough to cater to my then 6-year-year old daughter's taste.

 

She had asked me to read her certain poems and I recall her smile lighting up like a Christmas tree each time. I read the entire book to her once, and afterwards we would reread certain pages from the book.

 

Silverstein's funny imaginary world is unpredictable. You will never know where the next laugh or smirk will come from. My daughter also learned some previously unknown words from this book. At 8 years-old today, I credit some of her vocabulary acquisition from this book.

 

The Light in the Attic will always be a memory for my daughter. I even believe when she gets older, she will pull this book out and continue to reread her many favorite passages. 

 

Some of the illustrations is borderline nude considering the absence of pants or shirts from the hilarious characters, but the stories are mostly worthwhile, funny, and some even educational like the "Homework Machine" or "The guy who wore many Hats". 

 

Very fine book to introduce to children and imaginary worlds with no pressure to read it all in one sitting. I highly recommend this book of silly poems to parents and educators.
