The Shakespeare Requirement
The Shakespeare Requirement - Julie Schumacher

This is a follow up to Dear Committee Members, which I loved.  Fitger has been elevated to department chair and is struggling to bring the English department together in order to survive the incursion of the Economics Department.


Dear Committee Members was very nearly sublime in its satire and sneaky humanity; this one ... not so much.  The Shakespeare Requirement is a standard narrative (as opposed to the epistolary form of DCM), and while still funny and heavily satirical, it just falls flat.  It also lacks any clear plot, or perhaps it would be more accurate to say there's no clear story arc.  I suppose there's a climax, but it's not really much of one, and there's very little to no emotional punch.


All of this sounds like I'm tearing a strip off the book and that's not my intention; I enjoyed it for the humor and the connection to the characters - I never found myself bored or wanting to put it down.  It just didn't have the same grip as its predecessor and if asked, I'd definitely recommend Dear Committee Members but would likely suggest skipping this one, or at least preparing for it to be a different read altogether.

Book Review for Among Ash & Ember by Dani Rene
Among Ash and Ember: A New Adult Standalone Kindle Edition - Dani René


Omg !What a great story we loved it from beginning to end. The story was tragic and intense and edgy and had a love story like no other.Secrets Secrets nothing but secrets.

We loved the characters of the story they were and electric bunch. Katerina aka Kitten was feisty and determined and sweet,kind and loving and take no crap kind of girl who wasn't afraid to speak her mind.

Ash was hard and dominate and a -hole most of the time but, accepted that part of himself and he was little bit broken and waded down by secrets.

The story was filled with drama and romance and a whole lot of sadness.One minute you were laughing the next you were crying.Ember we loved him he made us laugh and well as cried also he was the light to the darkness that was his twin Ash.

A well written story that had us engrossed from the very first pages and we fell head over heels in love with each and every character.

Book Review for Save Grace by Rie Warren
Save Grace (Blood Legion MC #2) - Rie Warren



What a heart wrenching story this was!The story had you engrossed from the very first pages.The story was full of pain and one of acceptance but, one man fought for the both of them and for the women he loved to be free and failing was not an option.
Killian and Grace had one of the oddest courtship that I have read about but, it was cute in an endearing sort of way as Killian fought to gain Grace's trust in order get her our for the life she is currently living because poor Grace was traded and sold into sexual slavery yet again.
Grace we met in book one where she was forced to whore herself by a group of horrible people but, she also got caught up in the war between the MC and White Lair and just disappeared but, not forgotten but, yet again Grace has been thrown into yet again other sick game her master is now playing but, this time around she might not survive once its played out.
I loved Grace and Killian together as Killian wore his heart on his sleeve the entire time and they had amazing chemistry together . My heart bleed for Grace time and time again and not only for what she had survived so far but, for the pain that was coming her way yet again.
Killian and Grace had chemistry but, they also had a amazing friendship that developed into so much more.We loved that Killian courted Grace in the only way he could even if it was a bit unconventional but it was a bunch of firsts for Grace her first kiss,first date and first love and something that was freely given between a couple who genuinely cared for one another.
Overall all the story was full of suspense and had drama and villainous characters and one whooping big surprise that you never saw coming.The story was one big emotional roller coaster for both the reader and its characters.We enjoyed it.
We are enjoying this series and looking forward to our next read.
