uuuuuuwwwwwwww this is sooooooo good!!!
Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices Book 2) - Cassandra Clare

I must preface this review with a confession: I am an undisputed, unabashed, unadulterated (and a few other "un" words) Fangirl of anything and everything Cassandra Clare! In my eyes she can do no wrong, that was until reading Lady Midnight. I admit that I had gone into LM expecting nothing short of attention demanding perfection. What I experienced was....well written but extremely underwhelming. Any way, back to Lord of Shadows which I LOVED...especially that ending...oh that horrific, gut wrenching, beautiful ending!! The book was a solid 4 stars, that was until the very end where it all hit the fan...you know the fan, it takes all of your hopes and expectations and sucks them into the blades of Cassandra Clare's devilishly sharp unrepentant plot twisting devices leaving you a sniffling lump laying in the dark corner of the bed trying not to sob too loud and wake the hubby beside you at 3:45 a.m.

 

That being said I admit it...buried in that long winded, definitely not a run-on, sentence I LOVED this book. It might be due to the fact that I went into it with ZERO expectations and quite a bit of snobbish scepticism. BUT no matter the original mood, my mood at the end, at the very last period, I was scintillatingly flabbergasted. I don't want to give too much away but there is romance and romance conundrum abound. There are also revenant and downworlders galore with all the nefarious situations they find themselves the center of or more likely the ones they orchestrate. There are plots and subplots...laws broken at every turn...Laws residing in dusty old books and biblical laws such as the frowning upon murdering your own kin. There are so many breadcrumbs teasing conjecture and interconnectivity between unlikely relationships hopefully revealed in book #3. I love love LOVE this world, these characters and this author!!

 

I HIGHLY recommend this series...drop what you are doing and pick up this gem. Unless you're the type to want everything wrapped up neatly at the end of reading, those that have the strength to resist a beautifully tempting series until the last book has been released...you know who you are and I commend you...if that's the case BEWARE... there are many things here but most notably a huge, honking CLIFFHANGER!!! You have now been sufficiently warned. To all others, ENJOY! I can't wait to read what each of you thought, felt, surmised and hypothesized.


Here are some quotes that I loved:


"If you believe only in facts and forget stories, your brain will live, but your heart will die.”


“There’s something about a place you’ve been with someone you love. It takes on a meaning in your mind. It becomes more than a place. It becomes a distillation of what you felt for each other. The moments you spend in a place with someone . . . they become part of its bricks and mortar. Part of its soul.”


"Long ago the pieces of his soul had scattered, and every piece lived in one of his brothers or sisters. Except for the piece that lived in Emma, which had been burned into its home in her by the flame of the parabatai ceremony, and the pressure of his own heart."

Reading progress update: I've read 6 out of 320 pages.
Y: The Last Man Book Three - Pia Guerra,José Marzán Jr.,Brian K. Vaughan

more of this lunacy--Vaughan seems to perpetually sabotage any deep meaning I can find in this by just having fun and bumping off characters. the most thoughtful immaturity you can find out there. and the art is swell!

Book #855 - 344,181 Pages Read
The Silent War: Book III of The Asteroid Wars - Ben Bova

Pretty much continues from where The Rock Rats left off....the characters that Bova developed so well in the first two asteroid war books continue to battle for the riches of the asteroid belt, as well as resolve their personality differences in various ways. Humphries, Astro Corporation, and Yamagata Corporation fall into a deadly battle for control of this vast area of treasures. Bova ends this one with mention of an alien artifact which casts an air of morality over the entire story. Another good read in the Grand Tour.

The sweetest taboo.
Too Close To Love: Loving, Book 1 - M.A.... Too Close To Love: Loving, Book 1 - M.A. Innes

This was recommended to me by a friend and they assured me it was not as naughty as it sounded. I was sceptical but I trust them. Then I read the blurb and cursed my friend because clearly they don’t know me. So first I was like Loretta on Ronny ~

gif cher snap out of it

 

Then I started reading and the story had such a sweet tooth, two bros realise the loving they have for one another is real and not just because at 14 the younger bro was nearly kidnapped and the older bro saved him as he fought the bad guy off. They each think that the other bro is the hero and then because of the nightmares, and because a therapist told their parents to let them, they start sleeping together and they’re still doing it 4 years later. Honies, let me tell all, I was sucked in like a lollipop in a celebrity’s mouth.

Ohemgee, they say the cutest things to each otther: “I love you. You know that, right? And not like—you know…like regular.” My eyes teared up and I reached over and put my hand on his leg. I could feel his body vibrating, and I knew how hard it had been to say it. “I know. I love you, too. And who cares what regular is?” Me to Kevin and Jeremy: Mebe the authorities? But they’re such downers, you know? Because, for real, I don’t care. I want to see how you two adorkables make it in the big bad world with your swoony sweetness.  “No, like actually hold you. Like…” This time I blushed. “Like touch you and stuff. Not just sit on the couch all PG and shit.” “Like PG-13 or R?” Kevin grinned, and I could tell he was liking how dysfunctional I was becoming. Me to you: Totally dysfunctional but we’ve established that I don’t care so keep going with your love of the word like and your PG R rating.

Kevin. Jeremy. You may be incestuous but, you guys, you’re SO totes romantically adorkable!  People always hoped their secret crush would want them too one day—Jeremy had made me watch a thousand sappy old movies with that storyline—but it never happened in real life. But this time…it did.

And that Jeremy, he’s such a planner~ he has money saved and he’s organised college out of town and their scholarships, plus their own apartment for when the ‘rents go bananas. Speaking of the ‘rents, they’re suspicious and keep making a now 18 year old Kevin go back to a new therapist to catch 20 year old Jeremy out as a perv. Me to the parents: You’re pretty sick, Chubbs.  

 

Once Kevin does the Salome towel unveil it’s game over. EV-erything is about that towel drop. “I loved hearing how much you enjoyed it when I dropped my towel. Did you like seeing my ass on display just for you?” AND~ “You were so hot, you little tease.” He arched up again and pressed his hard cock against my leg. “When you dropped that towel and your ass was right there, I thought I’d explode. I was afraid you’d see how hard my dick was.”

Jeremy and Kevin sneak out of home, permanently, and their dad is pretty indifferent about his sons sneaking off for good. The new therapist is weirdly cool with it, as in here’s a number for a therapist near the new campus who doesn’t mind abnormal relationships. Say whaaaat?! Too Close to Love made me laugh and I buddy read it partly with a friend. That was fun and waaay better than being squicked the hell out. This book is the sweetest frickin taboo story of all time, I have decay now, but I liked it as a cutie-pie read not so much a sexy one. Whad’yaknow, my friend isn’t in trouble after all. I won’t sic Cher on them. Eh. Mebe I will. 

 

Quick  recap – Kevin and Jeremy are bros who are dreamily and sweetly in love with each other and they run away together, Jeremy is the most planful person alive, they cutely boff each and it ends. Fin. Wrap it up for me Loretta~ 

 

ma i love him awful gif
