The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
The Duchess Deal - Tessa Dare
I read a lot of horror but I'm also a fan of an amusing romance. I realize the two do not go together and many people can't wrap their heads around this but I do not care. Romances help me clear my head when I can't seem to focus on anything else and The Duchess Deal was the perfect book for me at this particular moment in time. It is getting all the stars because it amused me and made me happy and it also made me laugh a few times and most of us probably need to do a little more of that.

Ash is horribly disfigured from a war injury and was dumped by his feckless fiancee who couldn't handle his scars (and they do sound terrible - this isn't a little scratch on the face, this poor man is maimed and missing some chunks of himself but none of the important ones, haha) and one day decides he needs an heir, like right now. When a seamstress shows up at his door demanding he pay her in full for the ugly ass wedding dress she created for his former fiancee, he decides she'd be alright to marry and he proposes on the spot. How weird is this? She knows it's strange but, well, it's a decent deal for her and she's no dummy. Her only demand is that he allow her a cat - even though she doesn't even have one yet, lol.

Hey, call me crazy (you wouldn't be the first), but this setup was so ridiculous that I couldn't help but keep reading to see where else it would go. Sometimes you just need some ridiculousness in your life. If this is you, this is your book!

But even I can't live on ridiculousness alone. I need characters who have chemistry and joy and humor and lust and love and all of those good things and these two had it from their first insane exchange. They are SO funny together and I wasn't expecting that. Usually beauty and the beast type books feature a rough and grumbly hero with a super bad attitude. And this dude has one but he also tolerates the teasing and the silliest of pet names and he isn't a jerk. Soon enough he learns to love it. It is all so very lovely.

I want all books to be this charming even the cannibalistic serial killer ones! Just kidding. Sort of.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan Says Nurses Looked Like ‘Hoors’ After One Injection

❒ Latest News Updates

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday (28.01.2020) gave a very Funny Comment while addressing an event in Karachi. Imran Khan Funny Comment was that nurses, who worked at the hospital looked like “hoors” after a doctor attending him and gave an injection that calmed his pain.

PM Khan, fortunately, was addressing an event when he recited his suffering of breaking bones, and carelessly said that after his pain was calm the nurses appeared as “hoors” (deities), to him.

In fact, PM Imran Khan during a 2013 election campaign fell from the stage and he was in deep pain due to the injuries, but after landing up at Shaukat Khanum Hospital,  Dr. Asim attended him and gave the pain killer injection, after a while all his pain had vanished. This relief could make him speak well and highly relieved from the pain, he had also revealed that the nurses too looked like “hoors” to him at that time. A loud laugh in the audience was heard.

❒ Imran Khan Funny Comment

Besides this, Imran Khan’s Mockery was on heights saying soon after the injection was pushed into his body, he thought all his problems magically vanished, and so did his “memory”. “He didn’t even remember what he said. But when the injection’s effect went away, my pain was back.

The doctors refused when the Pakistan PM, urged the doctors and the nurses at the hospital to give him the injection again to relieve the pain but the doctors threatened him with the consequences of the injection.

The Funny Little Woman
The Funny Little Woman (Picture Puffins) - 'Arlene Mosel', 'Blair Lent'

The cover simply says retold by Mosel, but it doesn't specify what tale is being retold. According to Wikipedia it's based on The Woman Who Lost Her Dumplings as originally collected by Lafcadio Hearn. I haven't read this tale, but I have read some of Hearn's other collected stories and enjoyed them. 

 

The story is funny but feels a little abridged. I thought I had missed something towards the end. I'll try to track down a copy of Hearn's tale to compare it. 

 

ETA: I found and read Hearn's original story and there are additional bits that Mosel edited out of her retelling that help the story make more sense (why those bits were cut out I don't understand... the original tale is not that much longer than The Funny Little Woman).

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 6: 1961-1962
The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 6: 1961-1962 - Charles M. Schulz,Diana Krall

In these years Sally becomes a full-fledged character, aging in time to fret about the tyranny of being sent to Kindergarten. The biggest debut is Frieda & Faron. Growing up I had no idea who Frieda was because she had the briefest lifespan of Schulz' main characters so hardly appeared in any strips after I was born. She and the other forgotten characters did appear in my hand-me-down  'Charlie Brown Dictionary' set, but that doesn't give much in the way of characterization.

 

The span of this comic staggers me if I really think about it. He kept up a daily strip with relatively few repeats for fifty years.  

 

Otherwise, there is being to be a lot more interaction between Snoopy and the birds, he talks with them, allows them to rent out his doghouse for club meetings and is a rest stop during migration. Woodstock, of course, is a few years way. My favorite strips were where he befriends snowmen, only to have them melt. 

 

Lucy's psychiatric booth gets into full swing and there was an interesting storyline where the Van Pelt's new tangerine pool table causes unrest among the mothers. They spend so much time playing during the day they forget about their children.

October 2019 Reading List
The Final Days - Bob Woodward,Carl Bernstein
Lab Girl - Hope Jahren
#IMomSoHard - Kristin Hensley
Connections in Death - J.D. Robb
Vendetta in Death - J.D. Robb
Well, That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activist - Franchesca Ramsey
Jane Doe: A Novel - Victoria Helen Stone
Copycat Killing - Sofie Kelly
A Very Mummy Holiday (Tourist Trap Mysteries #11) - Lynn Cahoon
A Colony in a Nation - Chris Hayes

New month, fresh start. 

 

Going back to my Nixon Reading List and reading The Final Days by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, which is their follow up to All the President's Men. Although I think this was a good reading project for me, the timing may be off considering....the state of the union so to speak.

 

NEA Big Reads for Wichita is Lab Girl by Hope Jahren; my real life book club is reading it as our leader/host is on the board that votes every year. There is a few events happening both on base library and my local branch that I hope to get to attend.

 

#IMOMSOHARD - man I love Kristin and Jen since I first saw their videos on FB. They are hilarious and real and I really want to see their show when they come to Tulsa next February....hint, hint Santa! Rather than doing non-stop toxic positivity, these ladies come straight out of the gate about the less than awesome things (deaths in family for example) or gross (adventures in toilet training), and motherhood with humor and grace. They are my inspirational mom friends.

 

I am still working through Connections in Death and I picked up Vendetta in Death since it was on the library's shelf, just calling my name. Seriously, brand new JD Robb title just sitting on the new release shelf with nary a waiting list - perplexed I was. I hope to be all caught up on the series by the time November comes around. I can't believe #50 will be published in February.

 

I need a palette cleanser in between the Eve Dallas books, so I picked up at the library Well, That Escalated Quickly by Franchesca Ramsey. I've listened to a number of podcast episodes with her and she seems funny and smart. 

 

I wanted something a little dark for this time of year and I am determined to get to Victoria Helen Stone's Jane Doe. I wanted something magical realism/cozy mystery, so Copycat Killing. And by the end of the month, the next novella in the Tourist Trap mystery series A Very Mummy Holiday will be on my NOOK and I can join the gang in South Cove for another round.

 

Finally, I picked up from the library Chris Hayes' A Colony in a Nation from my non-fiction wish-list. For those not in the US, Hayes is a tv host on MSNBC and former editor/writer for The Nation. Honestly, he is a little heavy on his love for a certain senator from a New England state, but he generally does do a good job of reporting and Ta-Nehisi Coates blurbed the book. I trust Coates enough to give the book a try.
