Reading progress update: I've read 24 out of 319 pages.
Babbitt - Sinclair Lewis

I'm reading this for my local book club. It feels like what you'd get if you sucked all the magical aspects out of the first Harry Potter book and decided that a novel focused on a US version of the Dursleys would be amazing. Very much not my thing.

MAIN STREET by Sinclair Lewis
Main Street - Sinclair Lewis
In a word tedious.  Sinclair Lewis wrote a satire about small time life.  His writing is tedious as he shows what life is like in a small town when you surround yourself with like-minded people.  No one wants to change.  Everyone knows everything about everybody.  No one wants to go out of his/her comfort zone.  And his uses his writing to show that. 
Carol marries Will, Gopher Prairie's doctor.  She's used to a big city and tries to change things and is discounted and laughed at and gossiped about.  She is a whiner and nothing and nobody does anything she likes.  She has an active inner life but drove me crazy. 
 
Will does not see Gopher Prairie as Carol does.  He sees nothing wrong with the town or the people.  He does take Carol to task at times.  He is also willing to let her do what she wants even if it is leave but she still is not happy.  They have a few blow-ups over her discontent.
 
My favorite character was Miles, the town handy man.  He was real but also an outcast.  I felt bad for him.
 
The place and time are written well.  I am glad I did not live then or there.

Review: The Singular Mr. Sinclair by Mia Marlowe
The Singular Mr. Sinclair - Mia Marlowe

4.25 Stars - Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

The Singular Mr. Sinclair is a true delight to read! Reformed rakes and silver-tongued rogues make for fine heroes, but there’s something about a slightly awkward hero that just grabs my heart. Lawrence charmed me from the start and made me smile. He isn’t a dashing duke, but rather a self-made man whose position as heir to an earldom is tenuous at best. He’s not someone most ladies would fawn over because he’s not suave or witty, but they’d be missing out because he’s a smart, honorable, kind, loyal, and strong man. He’s also unabashedly head-over-heels for Caroline from the very start and that just made me melt.

Caroline may have grown up in the heart of the ton, but she longs for a life much different than the one laid out for her. She’s determined to see the world and she’ll even flirt with an unsuitable gentleman if it undermines her parents’ plans to marry her off before she comes into her inheritance and can take off on her own. The one thing Caroline never planned for was Lawrence. He needs her help if he’s to fit into society, but there’s something about her brother’s friend that knocks her just slightly off-kilter and she senses that there’s more to him than meets the eye.

The Singular Mr. Sinclair has a slightly slow pace, but I was charmed enough by the characters that I didn’t mind. Caroline and Lawrence’s romance develops organically and there are just enough obstacles that I was curious to see how they would ultimately end up together. Caroline and Lawrence would be enough to make this a satisfying read, but the addition of Caroline’s brothers filled out this story nicely and made me look forward to more House of Lovell books.The Singular Mr. Sinclair was a joy to read and by the time I finished the book I was excited to read more of Mia Marlowe’s work.

Fantastic Historical Romance
My Fierce Highlander - Vonda Sinclair

My Fierce Highlander by Vonda Sinclair is an amazing historical romance.  Ms. Sinclair has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are absolutely phenomenal.  Gwyneth was sent to the Highlands after she found herself unwed and pregnant.  She rescues Alasdair when he is injured while battling her cousin's clan.  Gwyneth and Alasdair's story is loaded with drama, humor, action, suspense and sizzle.  I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Vonda Sinclair in the future.  My Fierce Highlander is book  1 of the Highland Adventure Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Awesome!
Touched By Danger (A Sinclair & Raven Novel Book 3) - Wendy Vella

Wendy Vella has once again penned a phenomenal historical romance. The more I read from this author, the more I love her work. Touched By Danger is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Ms. Vella has delivered a well-written book. The characters are amazing, I love them. Max and Essex's story is loaded with drama, steamy sex, action, humor and suspense. I enjoyed reading Touched By Danger and look forward to my next book by Wendy Vella. Touched By Danger is book 3 of the Sinclair & Raven Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
