Tee'd up, where will it go...
The Wrong Girl (Book 1 of the 1st Freak House Trilogy) - C.J. Archer

This was a fun read and I definitely enjoyed it. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was well written and edited, which is important to me. The story didn't have much there, there, it felt like a set up for the later books (which it appears it is, so that's ok). I liked the characters, Hannah's smart, has a backbone, and while we do get a little "sigh, he's so dreamy" it fits within the context and doesn't get out of hand. I've seen a lot of other reviewers just love Sylvia's character, however I'm withholding judgement since I didn't feel like we learned really anything about her other than she loves to shop and is a stickler for propriety, which, "yes yes, how adorbs," is not terribly interesting to me so far. I will say that I figured out the twist pretty much from the get go, but there's still a fair amount of mystery to go, so that's good. All in all this felt like a season premiere, a little exposition heavy, but leading towards something cool and interesting. I'm definitely interested in reading the rest of this series and the other books I've seen around by this author.

Looking for something to read, hmmm???
Timebound - Rysa Walker

Brief endorsement, since I'm a slacking slacker who slacks and haven't been on BL in ages, but I really wanted to share this book since it was such a delightful surprise. In fact, I might post this on *whispers* Goodreads  too, if that tells you anything...


So, I really want to write a review of this, but I have no idea when I'm going to get to it, so I thought I'd do this as a little place holder.


My rationale for why I'm putting this little bit in is I really wanted to rate and say how much I enjoyed this book. I got it for free through Kindle First, one of those "eh, why not" moments and I was so pleasantly surprised. Though I do have a weakness for time travel stories, fair warning, I really enjoyed it. I mean I really, really enjoyed it. It's a very clever premise, I really like the characters, the setting is fun and the whole story just whipped along.


So that y'all know, there appears to

be a love triangle coming, though it hasn't happened yet, it's pointing the way

(spoiler show)

and I've read some other reviews that found inconsistencies with the timelines/time travel, but honestly, I'm terrible at catching them, particularly when I'm enjoying the book so much I'm racing through it. It is part of a series, but the ending isn't too cliffhangery or rather it didn't make me crazy the way some have (I'm looking at you, Ruby Red - Kerstin Gier  trilogy).


That said, I think Timebound - Rysa Walker  is totally worth checking out. Good news, the sequel is due in October, so not too bad a wait, whoot!


eta: release date, got it all kinds of wrong, my bad. Also, grammar is your friend, but apparently a distant one of mine, sorry about that.
