The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black

  Clever chicks who kick ass and go back to save people and are kind to smaller children...I love Tana. There's plenty of creepy atmosphere, and vampire slaying, and gore for days, but there's no swearing or sex (if that's something you look for) and in its own way it's rather wholesome. Tana and Buffy would get along well together.

Tess of the Road - Rachel Hartman

Woah. I will try and write something more reviewish after time  to reflect. For the time being there is nothing about this book that isn't fabulous.

 

Amusing coincidence: the author photo shows Hartman in an orange blazer. The author photo for Naomi Novak, who has also written a bestselling series about dragons, shows her in an orange blazer. Orange is my least favorite color, but clearly it works for some people.

Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery
Secrets of the Tulip Sisters - Susan Mallery

I loved Mallery's Blackberry Island series earlier this year, so I figured I would like more of her women's fiction. But this book sucked. Kelly and Olivia are grown adults and sisters from a dysfunctional family. Kelly is a tulip farmer, learning the trade from her dad and being his partner in the business. Olivia is an up and coming businesswoman who is smart and creative. I am going to say right now Kelly is a snooze fest when she wasn't being incredibly awkward or cringey around Griffith, hometown boy made good then came home. Griffith is a dudebro and smugly self-righteous. Helen is Kelly's best friend, equal in the snooze fest, and is crushing on Kelly and Olivia's dad, Jeff (from whom the snooze fest gene must come from). When Helen isn't having such ridiculous lewd thoughts about her best friend's dad, she is CONSTANTLY complaining about her body shape/weight and dieting. Kelly and Olivia's mom is the evil bad guy who stops being evil when she falls in love with Griffith's younger brother and Olivia's high school/college boyfriend, Ryan. Ugh.

 

There is small town contemporary romance, then there is too small town - is there anyone else to date/maybe try Tinder or OK cupid - contemporary romance. DNF'ed this morning at 20%.

Friday Reads - August 17, 2018
Secrets of the Tulip Sisters - Susan Mallery
Crewel World - Monica Ferris

I am slipping into a reading slump. Nothing is appealing me and I keep DNF'ing books. This week's DNF was Written in Blood (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop - it was wonderful world building but I couldn't stand Meg and her less than usefulness at adulting. I am considering DNF'ing Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery if I don't get some plot/action going and I am already tired of a side character's repetitive dieting/hating her curvy body. 

 

So I am going to try to read more from Tulip Sisters and start Crewel World (Needlecraft Mysteries #1) by Monica Ferris with the hopes I can finish at least one book before the end of the month. One more week of summer vacation for my son and I may just put off reading to spend a little more time with him and my daughter before school starts up again.
