Outstanding Historical Romance
Wallflower Most Wanted - Manda Collins

Wallflower Most Wanted by Manda Collins is a fantastic read.  Ms. Collins has given us a book that is well-written.  She has loaded the book with amazing, lovable characters.  Sophia is an artist and overhears a threatening conversation.   The voices startle her and she falls over a small cliff.  Benedick is the local vicar and comes to her aid.  Their story is loaded with drama, sizzle, intrigue, action and humor.  I totally loved reading Wallflower Most Wanted and look forward to reading more from Manda Collins soon.  Wallflower Most Wanted is book 3 of the Studies In Scandal Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.


I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

Speed Dating
Speed Dating - J.J. Collins Speed Dating - J.J. Collins 3.5 stars.
An short and fun snifter mystery/romance. Unfortunately this book has some editing problems, and a couple of them are really irritating. That said, you can find MM books with worse editing problems out there. At least this one has an engaging story and no ultra stupid dialogues! :)

Fabulous Holiday Read
His Christmas Miracle (Love in Montana B... His Christmas Miracle (Love in Montana Book 5) - Dani Collins

His Christmas Miracle by Dani Collins is a magnificent holiday story.  Ms Collins has gifted us with a cast of characters that is spectacular.  This well-written book has plenty of drama, humor and sexy bits to keep readers entertained from start to finish.  Nicki and Quincy’s story is heartwarming and a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited time for reading.  I enjoyed reading His Christmas Miracle and look forward to reading more from Dani Collins in the future.  His Christmas Miracle is book 5 of the Love In Montana Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

Wofür so ne Woche krank zu Hause im Sessel lümmeln nicht alles gut ist. Man kann zum Beispiel sämtliche televisuellen Bildungslücken auffüllen. Genau das habe ich dann auch gemacht, und schwuppdiwuppdi alle Hunger-Games Filme hintereinander weggeschaut. Zurückgeblieben ist das nagenden Gefühl, dass man die Bücher doch auch noch mal lesen könnte. 


Gesagt, getan. Zumindest Band 1


Abgesehen von der wunderbaren Dystopie, die zum Zehennägeln kräuseln ist, gefällt mir hier die subkutane Liebesgeschichte ganz besonders gut. Oder man könnte sagen dieses Buch vertritt gleich zwei meiner favorisierten Genres: Negative Zukunftsvisionen und Liebesgeschichten die spannend bleiben, weil sich A und B nur in Paralleluniversen zu finden scheinen. Was will man mehr? 

Noch dazu lässt sich das Buch in einem Rutsch Weglesen und es gibt keine langweiligen Passagen. Das liegt nicht zuletzt daran, dass die Geschichte aus der Perspektive der Protagonistin erzählt wird, die einen ausnahmsweise mal nicht aufgrund nervenaufreibender Naivität in den Wahnsinn treibt (außer vielleicht was zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen angeht). Ganz im Gegenteil sie ist nüchtern, aber nicht Gefühlskalt und es bleiben uns ätzende Sprünge durch diverse Erzählstränge und Handlungszweige erspart.


Nichtsdestotrotz. Mal einen Moment innehalten und darüber sinnieren, was die Autorin hier für eine kranke Welt erschaffen hat. Gruselig. Und dabei gar nicht mal so abwegig.

good book and characters
Chasing Xander (The Collins Brothers) - Lexi Lawton

Xander was going across campus when while carrying boxes into the dorm with her best friend Celeste from home. Kylie trips and the box she dropped had underwear in it and was right near Xander.Kylie is really embarrassed as she picks up her undergarments then Xander questions Kylie on her choice of underwear. And she goes to head for the dorm again and Xander tells her his name and she just tells him her first name- Kylie.   Kylie wanted to get away from home to go to college to get away from her absentee abusive alcoholic  father. Kylie’s mother had died when she was young and she had been raised by her grandmother who was now in a nursing home with Alzheimer's disease.   Kylie and Celeste had agreed to do the college thing together. Kylie is on an academic scholarship for college.Kylie and Celeste are in the dining room, hall when Xander and his best friend Finn walks in. Xander and finn are in a fraternity but Xander is on probation because of his poor academics the year before and he has to repeat his classes form the year before. Xander comes from a rich family and Xander's father had said if he didn't straighten out  and concentrate on his studies Xanders trust fund would be cut off. Xander and Finn went up to Kylie and Celeste and the dining hall.  There is something about Kylie that draws Xander to her. Xander really likes Kylie and goes slow plus she is still a virgin and he really doesn’t want to deal with that.Kylie is very attracted to xander.  Also Kylie was the first girl who seemed to like Xander for himself.  Kylie is notified that her grandmother has died and Celeste and Kylie get in a huge fight but Kylie doesn’t have the money to go home for the funeral. Then Xander takes it on himself to take Kylie to her grandmother's funeral.   Xander was going to stay in a motel but Kylie doesn’t want to stay alone in  the house her  grandmother had already given to her.   Before the funeral Kylie had a run in with her father. Xander and Kylie were going to leave after the funeral but the lawyer told Kylie he had some stuff to go over with her on the will  that couldn’t be done until Friday.  Xander is suppose to leave friday to fly to N Y for his mother's birthday.   

I really enjoyed reading this book it made me laugh at times. I liked the twists in this story. I loved Xander and Kylie together. This had a good plot but it did drag some for me at times but not enough for me to give up on the book. I loved the growth in xander shown throughout this book. I also loved that Xander took Kylie back to Ohio for her grandmother's funeral.  I really didn’t like Kylie’s father. He needed to get out of her life and stay out of it. I thought this was a well written book. There was chemistry between Kylie and xander right away and I liked this as they didn’t rush into anything. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
