the weakest one, for me.
The Wilderness - Rosalind Abel
(Verified purchase, Sept 12 2018) This is book 8 in the Lavender Shores series, and you don't NEED to have read the others before this one. I would, however, probably recommend that you read book 6, The Glasshouse. You'll get a better picture of what Will suffered, and it gives a hint to this book! Will was left at the altar in font of a multi million viewing audience. Andre's wife passed away. Together, they get themselves through a really tough period. But it's not until Will decides to run clear across the world, does Andre realise what Will means to him, and just how much his heart would break, if he lost him. For me? The weakest of the series, and I've no idea why! And you KNOW how much that pains me!! I loved the other books, all 4 and 5 stars reads, and I really was looking forward to this one, especially after that hint in book 6, and I really don't know why in falls flat *insert wailing* It's well told, from both Will and Andre's point of view, in the first person, just like the rest. It's extremely well written and well delivered and I saw no spelling or editing errors to spoil my reading. And I DID read it in one sitting, just like the rest! It has very early (internal) professions of love, from both guys, and I don't usually like that but its quite some time before they SAY the words. It's a bit more . . . whats the word . . . lovey dovey . . . hearts and flowers . . . . .type of thing, than the rest, or at least I thought so? Maybe that's it?? **insert more wailing** I just don't know WHY this one didn't hit the spot, and for that I'm sorry. But still a nice read and a good addition to the series. 3 good solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

love love LOVED this one!
Searching For A Soul To Love - JP Sayle
I was gifted my copy of this book from the author, that I write a review was not required. This is book 4 in the Manx Cat Guardian series, and you really SHOULD, at the very least, read book three, Where It All Began before this one. It has a direct impact on this one. Book two, When Past and Present Collide, would be helpful to know what happens to Stuart, but not as necessary as book 3. Aadan goes to the Isle of Man to help Joe deal with his ex. His cat, Max, comes with. The minute Max lands on the island where it all began, the island that was once his home, things start happening: to Max, to Aadan, and to Greg, who works with Martin (book one) and Stuart (book 2) Can Max finally bring peace to his charges: to Olafr and Magnus, the two souls he has carried for a millennia and to Aadan and Greg? After reading book two, I was waiting for this one, Aadan and Greg have a poweful reaction in that book and it flows over into this one. It bubbles and simmers along for a huge chunk of the book, and it's not til over 90% do they FINALLY come together! Aadan was fighting the attraction, the pull of Greg a scary thing, but once he decides to go with it?? Interruption after interruption keep them from being together! While incredibly frustrating, for them and us, I think it was right and proper it took them so long. Greg now carries the soul of Magnus, and he feels everything that Magnus did on the fateful night in the nightmares that plague him. I said in my review for Where It All Began, that it would have been too much to hear from Magnus in THAT book. But here, Magnus has his voice, and while I stand by what I said, because it's truly painful reading, when Magnus calls to his beloved to finally end his torment, it is NECESSARY that he has his voice here. And you do need to hear what he has to say. Max in utterly smitten (it's the best word I can find!) with Princess, and at the end of this book, he's left with an impossible choice! I could not call which way he will go, and hopefully I won't have to wait too long to find out. Aadan's younger brother, Nick plays a part here, and his story is laid out. That could be quite explosive, given how Nick reacts to Brody, Aadan's friend! I loved the final chapter, with both Magnus and Olafr having a say and them finally, after such a long time apart, coming together forever. OH!! Loved the little twist about when the souls were both in Max. The author's skill continues to grow, and it shows in each and every book. Aside from having to wait so bloody long for the main event, and for the choice Max in left with, I loved this book, so... 5 full and shiny stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Is There Something Wrong With Me...

...or are all of my friends faking the funk?


Spoiler: There is nothing wrong with me and all my friends are fucking liars.  


But let me tell you how I came to that conclusion.


Let me give you some background.  So one of my...I wanna say best friends, but we've really grown apart over the years.  I'll say a good friend who was once like a sister to me.  We've known each other since elementary school so we're the same age.  Our oldest kids are the same age.  I have another child who is nearly college age, while her younger kids are still in elementary school (I think.  I'm gonna be honest and say we've grown far enough apart that I can't remember how old her younger kids are)--so you can kind of see where our lives started to veer into different directions.  She also has a grandchild, while my kids have promised me grand cats, but never grand kids.


I've said all this to say that she has just given birth to another child.  Now when she first told me she was pregnant, I asked all the pertinent questions.  What the hell were you thinking?  Why didn't you make your husband get snip-snipped?  Have you thought about not having the baby?  When all of her answers were (in my opinion) stupid, I just said, "Well, I support your decision; good luck."  Because it's her life and who am I to make decisions for her?  We've known each other long enough and well enough to know that she knows I think she's insane without either of us having to say the words.


Now we've grown far enough apart that if not for facebook, I would know next to nothing about her life, let alone that she was pregnant, or that the baby had been born.  Which, fine, lives change and people grow apart.  Lately I've only been checking facebook about once or twice a week at best.  So when I got on the other day, I saw that she had the baby a day or two earlier and posted about it.  There were some minor complications, but mom and baby came through it healthy, so I only responded, "Congrats, I'm glad both mom and baby are well."  I saw a bunch of other comments with people being elated by the news, and so happy and excited, and can't wait to see the baby.  I just shrugged and got the hell off facebook.


So I got on facebook yesterday because I posted something about my family.  Anyway I saw another post by my friend, which I only half read, but it ended with something about enjoying the baby being quiet while it lasted and also a photo of the baby.  My reaction was to cringe/shudder and skim the comments.  To my shock there were so many of my friends and peers saying cutesy things about the baby and wanting to kiss him and visit and how happy they were for her.


And I thought to myself, am I wrong?  I am not happy for her because they were already struggling emotionally and financially with the three they had.  She was done and only had maybe another 10 or so years before the other two were at least college age if not already out on their own.  At the very least job age and they could help ease the financial strain by buying their own extras/luxuries, or maybe paying their own cell phone bills, or something of the like.  She has now started over and will be close to 60-years-old before this new kid is [legally] old enough to fend for himself.  And also babies!  At the stage of life I'm currently in, babies suck!  They're completely dependent on others, they cry too much, and keep you up and they cost a lot of money and they suck up all of your time.  To me, that is not "cute", and I have no desire to come see your baby, or hold your baby, let alone kiss your baby.  I mean I cringe when someone brings a baby to a restaurant.  Why?  Because I had my babies, I raised my babies, and I'm now done with babies.  I enjoy having time to myself, which is hard enough when you have a clingy teenager. no imagine a baby!  No thank you!


The thing is, this of friends have all had similar beginning paths.  Most of us had kids young and have moved on to the point in our lives where were moving into to grandparent territory.  Or you know just living our lives for ourselves territory.  Why, oh why, would you want to start over?!  And why are all these bitches lying about it?  I love my friends, I do, but they are all lying liars, who lie!  I made sure my husband got snip-snipped over 10 years ago, just so we wouldn't find ourselves in this predicament.  And the sad thing is that she isn't the first of my friends to have what my mom calls a change-of-life-baby.  She's the third--fourth if you count my next door neighbor.


So it's not me, it's just that group of friends who are all dirty, dirty liars.  And I confirmed this with both of my kids and my husband who all agree that I'm normal and my friends are all lying so that they don't look like bad people.  I don't care how bad of a person people think I am because I want absolutely nothing to do with babies.  Unless it's baby animals, then I'm all in.  I'll just be the asshole friend how doesn't comment at all about how cute your baby is, and I won't come visit just to see the baby.  I talked it over with myself, and I'm okay with being the asshole.  I'm too busy living my best baby-free life to care.

One of many on my shelf
Transforming a Rape Culture - Emilie Buchwald,Emilie Buchwald,Pamela R. Fletcher,Pamela Fletcher

I should be surprised that a book written in 1993 should still be begging 25 years later.


Has anything been transformed?  Maybe.  But too damn little.
