Pole Star by Josephine Myles Review
Pole Star - Josephine Myles

It’s hard to flirt when sequins are chafing your bits…


Injured pole dancer Matt Lovell meets attractive radiographer Sal when he’s in casualty for an x-ray. Trouble is, Matt’s firefighter outfit is pretty convincing, and the longer he keeps up the pretence the harder it will be to reveal the naked truth: that there’s nothing underneath his costume but a sequinned thong!

 

Review

 

 

This is a funny, sexy short story with two great heroes.

It will make you smile.

The First Person and Other Stories
The First Person and Other Stories - Ali Smith

I find it incredibly hard to rate a short story collection, since the stories tend to be either a hit or miss or for me. And the same is the case with Ali Smiths short stories. Some of the stories were a miss for me not because they were badly written, but because I didn´t get the point of these stories or I simply couldn´t relate to the topics in them. So I´m not afraid to admit that Ali Smith at times might be too smart for me or it might be that I´m lacking certain life experiences to enjoy this collection to the fullest.

 

I´m glad that I read this collection, though. I loved the story with the baby, who suddenly appears in the shopping trolley of a woman and no one believes her that this isn´t her baby. And it´s been great to dip my toes into Ali Smiths writing. I´m definitely intrigued enough to check out one of her novels in the future.

Tea's TBR Thursday - January 18, 2018
Sweethearts And Jazz (A 1940's Romance Book 2) - Rose Andrews
Dialing Dreams: A short story - Jessica Eissfeldt
Allegiance: A Dublin Novella - Heather Domin

*bookish meme created by Moonlight Reader

 

This has been a week - and we are still waiting for a certain federal shoe to drop. Anyway, that is why I am late with this bookish meme. Apologies.

 

Books Read from TBR:

1. The Good Girls Revolt by Lynn Povich

2. Dark Tide by Stephen Puleo

3. The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking

4. Triangle by David von Drehle

5. A Right Honorable Gentleman by Courtney Milan

6. Ms. Marvel Volume 1 by G. Willow Wilson et al

 

Books Borrowed/On Hold from Library: Nothing. That will change soon, as there are a few books on my COYER list coming from OverDrive.

 

Books added to the TBR:

1. Sweethearts and Jazz by Rose Andrews - post WWII historical romance set in the world of regional/dinner theater.

 

2. Dialing Dreams by Jessica Eissfeldt - WWII historical romance between a military member and a hotel telephone switchboard operator (my copy's cover looks very different from the one showing).

 

3. Allegiance: A Dublin Novella by Heather Domin - a m/m historical romance set in Ireland in early 1920s between a British MI5 agent and an Irish rebel.

 

All three additions were from the free section of the NOOK store.

Something Sweet by Megan Derr Review
Something Sweet - Megan Derr

It's just another day at the candy shop for Sherlock: a quiet afternoon spent more on reading his latest fantasy novel than on selling candy. The kind of day he loves, even if the looming New Year's Eve leaves him feeling nostalgic and a little lonely. But then the last person he ever expected to see walks through the door of his shop, and Sherlock realizes that some things don't fade with time, but grow stronger.

 

Review

This book is a tease. The heroes are wonderful. Bookworm, candy store owner and ex football player turned writer. They both had crushes on each other in high school.

 

I liked it a great deal but it needed to be a much longer book with these wonderful characters.
