Spoiled sour meets spoiled sick
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett

LOVED it. Sour Mary, spoiled Colin, chatty Martha, angelic Dickon, curmudgeon Ben, wise Mother, the whole thing.

 

Best part for me was where Mary starts shouting to Colin over his hypochondria induced tantrum. Lord, was the girl vicious! It was funny in an overboard, freeing way.

 

A very sweet classic  that makes you love unlikely leads.

Voyageurs
Voyageurs - Keira Andrews

I loved this.  

 

While short, Keira packs the emotional punch with this historical voyage through the Canadian wilderness.  

 

 

 

Set in 1793, this story follows the thousand mile journey of two men who over the course of their journey develop a relationship unlike either have ever experienced.  

 

He didn’t know how to feel. Exhilarated. Embarrassed. Apprehensive. Excited. Confused.

Fulfilled.

 

***

 

“You’re like me, aren’t you?”

Simon was puzzled. “Like you?”

“You wouldn’t want a woman even if there was one here.”

“No. I wouldn’t.” Simon was thrilled. Could Christian feel the same way he did? Did he sense the bond between them growing ever stronger?

“The others I’ve met, they…they weren’t like us. For them it was just to fill a void. A need. Nothing more. They’d choose a woman if they could.”

Simon pressed their lips together, wishing he could see Christian’s eyes in the gloom. “I’ve never wanted a woman. And I want every part of you.”

 

Discovery.

 

And yet, this one ended too soon, as all shorts do.  I could have continued with this for many many more pages.

 

*Highly Recommended*

Jizzmas Meh...
All I Want for Christmas... Is No Christmas (2016 Advent Calendar - Bah Humbug) - Colton Aalto
  It's the Jizzmas 'Corns vs. Grumpicorns Round #3!

Check out all of our reviews here for this week's latest batch of Sunday Funday Jizzmas



2.5 HEARTS (barely)--Whelp, they all can't be winners.

 

 

Alec is a college attending rent boy. He's had a rough childhood and when he came out on Christmas, his life got rougher. He was homeless. Hooking provided a means to an end, where he can provide for himself and pay his way through college. I can't knock the hustle. Where the story goes off the Christmas track, is maybe around the point where a rent boy who can't read obvious signals from his crush. His older lawyer works for the Colorado Attorney General crush and cousin of Alec's best friend and dorm mate, Hayden.

 

The story is hella shallow, the plot is just as deep. A plus in this story's side is that the Christmas jizz is not heavy. But I can't keep stretching reality to make peace with this story. There's a big time investigation...for why? And the entire stripping thing...not needed. Or the info dumps on top of over-explanations. (ex. Why would a Colorado resident need to explain to another Colorado resident--pot is free? We won't even get into it being an older law enforcement type explaining to a college student) Hayden was cool with Alec's profession. I think that's awesome...however the reason why he likes him is because of his hotness?

 

(Refer to the gif above)

 

There wasn't any on page sex, so no worries for shallow bedroom escapades. I kinda wished the story kept to the promising crush, left the international case and just focus on the guy's obvious feelings without making the rentboy angle be this big thing that it turned out not to be.

 

The story telling skills were not for me. And it had nothing to do with the Santa Jizz. It was just quality.

 

Had promise...got lost in the vast info dumps.

Bully Beans
Bully B.E.A.N.S. - Julia Cook

Bully Beans, by Julia Cook, is about a group of kids who have to decide to stand up to the new girl Bobbette who is bullying them. One of the students finally gets tired of being bullied and decides to tell her parents about it and they give her bully beans (jelly beans) and tell her that if they she and her friends eat a bully bean then they will be immune to Bobbettes bullying. They will be able to stand up to her tell her that she is being bully and they even tell their teacher what is happening. Eventually Bobbette admits that she was bullied at her old school and that she thought if she was the bully then she wouldn't get bullied. This is a great book to introduce bullying either on the first day of class or within the first week. You can even set up a system where you have a jar of bully beans in you classroom and every time a student is getting bullied they can go get a bully bean and write down who is bulling them on the "Bully Slip" that will be beside the jar. They will then place the slip in another jar and then you can look at the slip and talk to the student who is bullying and it is completely anonymous. You can get to the root of the problem without causing any problems between students. You can do many different activities with this as well as a writing activity where they write about a time they were bullied, or you can even do some sort of math activity with "bully" beans to help reinforce a math lesson. This can be used for grades first through fourth.
