Quick read, nice story with a little too much head hopping
Twelve Days - Hope Waters

This is a quick story involving rock stars on the road. Four college students won 12 days on the road with their favorite band. Careful what you wish for. The main couple was Zoey and Mack. It was an instant attraction with many ups and downs but with an HEA. The second couple was Nia and Josh which was a different journey. I loved the behind the scenes look at the life of a rock star, the range of emotions covered throughout the story, and some pretty strong women making major decisions. I found there was a bit too much changing in POVs that I got confused a couple times, and I think the author should have kept the focus on Zoey and Mack.

I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 10 - Bon Om Touk, Task 4 (Moonlighting Book Characters)
The Complete Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle
Nights At The Circus - Sarah Waters,Angela Carter
The Colour of Magic - Terry Pratchett

Three moonlighting characters:

 

1. Dr. John Watson:  The good doctor actually has a full-time practice as an MD -- which doesn't stop him from routinely going sleuthing with London's self-declared "only consulting detectivie", however.

 

Since "moonlighting" is built into the character profile of pretty much every amateur detective (and if not into theirs, at the very least into that of their sidekicks), I could probably just go on listing cozy mysteries ... but just to keep it varied, I'll add instead:

 

2. Jack Walser: Journalist by trade, who joins Sophie Fevvers's circus and moonlights there as a clown in order to be able to finish Sophie's biography (and just generally be close to her) in Angela Carter's Nights at the Circus.

 

3. Rincewind: Discworld's most hapless wizard, who is pressed into moonlighting as Twoflower's (and his luggage's) tourist guide in Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic.

The Night Watch
The Night Watch - Sarah Waters

I´m one of those readers that needs a plot and I tend to struggle with character studies. But leave it to Sarah Waters to write a character study that has completely won me over. She slowly pulled me in into the lives of these four characters and I enjoyed every second of it.

 

I have to say, though, that some things have been left unexplained due to the structure of the novel.

 

Above all, why did Vivian stay with Reggie?

(spoiler show)

 

The story starts in the year 1947 and then Waters moves backwards in time, first to the year 1944 and then to the year 1941. Having learned the stories of these characters and what they have experienced during WWII, I would have loved to go back to the year 1947 to spend some more time with them and the new knowledge about them.

 

Read for the Epiphany tasks, a book that has the word "night" in its title.

The Night Watch - Sarah Waters

I´m still not sure what this book is actually about. There isn´t much of a plot. But I actually don´t mind because of the great characters in this novel.

I have to admit, though, that Helen´s jealousy makes me mad. I wonder what made her become such a jealous lunatic.

My second to last Sarah Waters novel. I´m reading this for door 24 (Epiphany - January 6th), a book with the word "twelve" or "night" in the title.
