Reading progress update: I've read 34 out of 327 pages.
Infomocracy - Malka Older

Dear author, 

 

I was willing to give you a chance. 

 

and then you committed lazy racism:

"Shamus is a second-generation Irishman whose maternal and paternal grandparents were, respectively, from Zambia and Gambia" - SEAMUS or SÉAMUS not Shamus if you're in Ireland. With bonus "new" Irish being a lot more careful about this.

 

"Some areas - Ireland being one classic example...had been polarized so deeply and so long that your choices if you stayed were pretty much A or B" You've never had dealings with Irish Elections.  May I present Luke Ming Flanagan who represents us in the EU.  And yes we had Dana Rosemary Scanlon and the Healy-Rae Family and lazy racists who spout all sorts of inanities.  But we also voted in Same Sex marriage and repealed anti-abortion laws in the last few years.

 

Yours 

 

A proud Irishwoman whose uncle is a Seamus and whose grandfather (who read the oration to President Kennedy and whose calligraphy is in the Kennedy archive, and died in 1969) was also a Seamus (Gallagher)

This should be my catnip.  I'm just not getting it.  It will get another chapter or two before I decide to abandon it. I try to give every book at least 50 pages before letting it go.

On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves
On the Island - Tracey Garvis-Graves

At first, it was rather shocking. I listened to my friend's praise and borrowed it from the library without reading the back cover. Somehow I thought T.J. was older, but he was only sixteen, so I almost stopped reading. Now I'm glad I didn't because it was a beautiful story - beautiful, horrible and so exciting. 
Because T.J. seemed more mature, the love story began years later, and it wasn't "typical" teacher student romance (they were more like friends), I was able to read and even enjoy the story. Author took a very sensitive theme and turned it into an interesting but realistic story. The main characters had a lot of challenges on the island (mother nature is wonderful but scary as hell) but I liked that they also had to face difficulties after returning to civilization. Anna and T.J. had to make an effort to have a relationship and get used to the "real" world. Great book.

Book Review for Robby by Jen Davis
Robby (Cooper Construction Book 3) Kindle Edition - Jen Davis

 

 

 

We are really loving this series and characters.We loved Robby and Matt's story as there path was not and easy road due to Matt exploring his sexuality and Robby's past and a whole lot of baby mama drama."We loved it all !"

I loved Robby already from the other stories already but, I loved him even more this time around he was such a love-able soul . Our heart broke for what he had to endure to get through his teens just to survive and the hard choices he had to make but, he rose up from the ashes and made something of himself and created a family full of misfits.I loved how Robby did not let his new life be tainted by the old one and how he remained sweet and kind and not bitter and someone who wallowed in self pity. Robby was my favorite character this round but, I still have a soft spot for Brick .lol

We enjoyed getting to know Matt while he was figuring himself out and how he never put a label on his sexuality just went with the flow and what felt good a right for him.

We loved of course seeing our favorite characters again and seeing them celebrating their new lives with each other and their good fortunes.We love you guys!

Overall the story kept us engrossed and turning the pages.This was one heart felt dark tale but, through Robby and his darkest times and dark days he survived and now he is making a difference to those in need. With your new life and your support and knowledge and your good graces you are making this happen hoping to create a better world.The story also just had enough suspense to spice things up and we loved it and we hope there is more to come in this series.

Recommend read to all and its series!

Book Review for Snatched by K Sterling
Snatched Kindle Edition - K. Sterling

 

 

Let's start off by saying this is a brand new author for us and we absolutely loved our first story by them.I loved everything about this story and it's character's.
 
This story was filled with love,humor and intrigue, murder, crime syndicate drama,betrayals,brotherly love and a forbidden love story and we loved every bit of it.
 
We loved Dilan and Roan from the onset of the story as they started things off with a bang and had us enmeshed in the story right from the very beginning to the very end.Roan and Dilan are tied up in the crimesyndicate life and its never a dull moment for them and the only thing they both crave is a life less crazy and they want to make it happen.
 
Jake Tyler is a cop and a medical examiner who lands right into the middle of the O 'Shea's shit storm and an unlikely friendship forms between the two men but, Jake is drawn to the charismatic bad boy with those smoldering dark looks and bada** tattoo's and has no business lusting for the bad boy when he is a cop and Dilan is a gangster.
 
Dilan was one of those character's that you can't help but love with his sexy bod who's loaded with tattoo's and has a bada** aura but, we also felt his sadness and and all that weight that he constantly carried around on his shoulders but, we saw a spring in his step any time he was around the sexy Jake Tyler !
 
Dilan and Jake can't seemed to be able to fight the chemistry between them but, when they give into their desires things get more complicated and even more dangerous but, they are having a whole lot of fun.We loved Dilan and Jake when they were together as they were super hot together some who say smoldering ! We loved seeing them fall in love and lengths that both of them were willing to go to to keep this new relationship and the love that they had for one another alive if only Dilan out smarts and out whits the demons that follow him around.
 
A couple of our favorite quotes
 
Jake -
 
You’re like Robin Hood, the Candy Man and Judge Dredd! Awesome,” he said extremely sarcastically and Dilan waved dismissively."
 
“You don’t want to know,” he promised. It would have been a tiny McDonald’s sign, just above Roan’s pubes, and proudly declared “Over 1 Million Served”.
 
 
 Overall the story was amazing and we loved it.It was fun and full of danger and intrigue,betrayals,surprises ,murder and forbidden love and drama and more than a few twists and turns and was all about second chances.The story kept you glued to that pages the entire time just to see what was going to happen next.I have to say that we laughed and cried and we were rooting for happy endings for all parties involved.
 
A refreshing series that we absolutely fell in love with!
