Boystown - Season 7
BOYSTOWN Season Seven - Jake Biondi

Oh this was once again...tasty!

 

 

There are not many who can pull off this level of soap opera drama and do it so well but Jake Biondi has a knack that just can't be matched.  This was every bit as enjoyable as the other seasons and the backstabbing, cheating and crazy antics being had here are so damn enjoyable I swear we could hardly keep a straight face. Marco and I had a blast!

 

 

Once again, trust no one...

 

 

because you never know what will come next...

 

 

or who is telling the truth...

 

 

or who is sleeping with who...

 

 

or who wants to strangle who.

 

 

I only just wish there had been some scenes in the hospital...

 

 

Bwahahahaha!!!  Because I swear at one point there may have been not 1...

 

 

but 9 cast members in a hospital bed.  Gawd I love it.  

 

At this point, I honestly could handle a few being killed off...

 

 

Because...quite frankly the number of characters is overwhelming and keeping track of all the details can get to be a lot.  And yet, I am completely consumed.  

 

I only hope Camille remains...because there are very few like her around.

 

 

Once again the number of cliffhangers left our minds racing! And with 2 funerals in store, who will be in the caskets...actually dead??  We shall see.

 

Can't wait for this crazy train to continue!!

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days - Kerrelyn Sparks

A pleasant surprise. I don't know what I expected but fantasy wasn't exactly it. And, an interesting fantasy. I liked that the world building occurred in the setting of the stage, and that new character introductions were kept to a minimum after a certain point - some authors scatter both throughout the story, causing disruption of the storyline.

 

Characters: the h, hidden twin, is pressed into service to fill in for her recently deceased sister. She sees dead people. Occasionally she sees the future...like once. Mostly she sees dead people. And converses with them, which makes everyone wonder about her. She doesn't even make an attempt to hide this, which is kinda dumb given that her country has laws about "gifts". Some of her oddities - and the other special snowflakes she grew up with - lead the H to figure out that something was off, and suspect what it was.

 

H, also gifted but in a way that makes him exceedingly dangerous and hard to kill, is nephew to the king. He's at some point, relieved he can actually touch her and well, that in and of itself means he's going to be exceedingly protective.

 

Various others - Brody, gifted shifter. Not sure whether he's just a shifter or another chameleon. He's not saying.
Nevis, friend. Not sure that he has any gifts
Nevis' dad. Practically raised H
Heroine's dad. hid h away because twins are outlawed too.
An assortment of ghosts including the h's twin, their mother, a kid... they acted to some extent as spies for the h

 

Villain - officially the H's uncle who coveted the h's family land and wanted an excuse to steal it *and* possibly get rid of the H in the process. Unofficially, turned out to be a non-issue as he, and his mostly harmless son, were done in by a chameleon who, though zapped by the H a couple of times, still got away.

 

Nits - that chameleon appearing out of nowhere, conveniently making the H king.
The H's choice of explicatives - holy shit - seemed incongruous in the context of the story. His first encounter with the h, he said several times "I like that". Made me think of Angel in Maverick. Found it distracting.

ULTRAXENOPIA by M.A. Phipps pre-order blitz

 

I'm super excited that Ultraxenopia, my top read of 2015, is being re-released by Seven Sisters Publishing on August 1st 2017. It has a simply breathtaking new cover image, designed by Nathalia Suellen.

 

 

Don’t stand out. Blend in. Remain invisible. Those are the rules I lived by—the rules I thought would keep me alive. I was wrong.

Wynter Reeves is a law-abiding citizen of the State, a willing conformist whose daily life is haunted by terrorism and oppression. With the constant threat of death hanging over her like a shadow, she forces herself to live by a strict set of rules, all in the hope of ensuring she is never noticed. However, on her twenty-first birthday, as she prepares to take the placement exam that will determine her future within society, she begins to show symptoms of a rare and debilitating illness—ultimately attracting the attention of the State. Taken into the custody of the feared research facility known as the DSD, her worst nightmare becomes reality. Ripped away from the life she knew, Wynter is forced to become the test subject of the mysterious Dr. Richter. Through him, she learns the true and terrifying nature of her condition: a disease called Ultraxenopia.

Excerpt: 

“This isn’t how it looks,” I stammer.
A sarcastic laugh explodes from his lungs, echoing through the otherwise soundless bar.
“Really? Because, from where I’m standing, it looks like you’re one of them.”
“I’m not.” The words sound weak and unconvincing.
He pushes the barrel of the gun against my temple, and our faces are so close now that I can feel his heated breath against my lips.
“Why should I believe you?” he growls.
I tense my jaw, spitting my next words through clenched teeth. “If I was one of them, they would already be here,” I hiss back.
The State doesn’t play games. He must know that better than anyone. They wouldn’t waste time sending in a single person when they could more efficiently get the job done by sending a whole team. If I was one of them, the Enforcers would already be here. The State wouldn’t bother with this game of charades.
His expression doesn’t change, but I can see his true reaction in his gaze—the doubt that appears there. He seems to grasp that what I’ve said makes sense, but at the same time, can’t wrap his head around any other reason why I’d be here.
He wavers, and I can feel his uncertainty in the way the point of his gun wobbles against my skin. His eyes remain fixed on mine, making my heart race even faster. I only glance away when I notice a movement to my right. Looking up, I see another man now standing beside us.
“We can’t take any chances,” the man grumbles before spitting on the floor in front of me. “We should kill her to be sure.”
A deep-rooted panic washes over me, the fear like a smoldering and inextinguishable ember. Despite everything I’ve seen, I still have my doubts as to what’s really happening, and I can’t help worrying that this won’t end well. How can it? I won’t even be given the chance to defend myself.
He presses the gun even harder against my forehead, causing me to suck in a sharp breath. Our eyes lock once again.
“How do you know my name?”
I stare at him, trying to figure out the best way to answer his question. His hazel eyes are probing, but I find myself losing focus on his expression. His face has gone hazy, the bar even darker. The nausea from before returns with a vengeance, consuming my entire body and pressing down on me with a force that threatens to pin me to the floor.
I sway, lightheaded.
A strange trickling resonates around us, the sound deafening in the hushed bar. At first, I think I’m imagining it, but then I see the alarming change in his face.
His eyebrows pull together as he looks down, and suddenly, he’s taking a reflexive step back. I follow his gaze once more, my own vision doubling as I take in the tremendous pool of red that seems to surround me.
I watch the blood as it drips from my open wrist, the bandage soaked through and unravelling from its hiding place in the no longer white sleeve.
His eyes snap back to mine, and my every movement feels delayed as I glance up to meet them. The moment I do, the images from my vision flash through my thoughts, reminding me why I’m here.
I see his face. His hazel eyes.
I see his tears.
“I’m sorry, Wynter.”
Any and all light that the bar possessed vanishes in an instant, and the pain I had managed to forget hits me all at once. I gaze at him, concentrating on his face as much as my increasing blood loss will allow. Focusing on his eyes, which continue to stare back at me.
My lips pull into a smile as the darkness rushes to overcome me.
“I saw you,” I breathe.

The Seven Dials Mystery
The Seven Dials Mystery - Agatha Christie

I have to admit, I´m not the biggest fan of Agatha Christies conspiracy / secret society novels. They have an odd feeling to them and I´m never sure if I should take these books seriously or not.

The same goes for The Seven Dials Mystery. I wasn´t impressed by the story, I thought the ending to be a lackluster one and I didn´t like the initial chapters of the book. I thought the group of young Englisch upperclass people to be insufferable.

Despite all that the mystery has still been a whole lot of fun to read, simply because the character of Bundle and her witty banter with all the other characters (but especially with her father) were highly enjoyable.

 

A fun read, but not the best Christie out there.

 

I have read this book for the Booklikes-opoly for the Square Frontierland 4. The word "river" can be spelled by the letters of the title of the book.
