I deducted half a star despite how much I loved this ridiculous book because it was riddled with grammatical errors. But wow, this was so bad/good I couldn't help but enjoy it. If you enjoy some high Texan society drama you should pick this up. So funny.

Goddess of Love (and vanity....and no modesty)
Goddess of Love - P.C. Cast

Okay, this series is my guilty pleasure but this one fell so flat I wanted to barf.

 

The main character is called Pea. Seriously. She's a grown woman of 30, and she is called Pea. She has curly hair and doesn't have enough brains to know not to brush her hair. That's curly hair 101. She brushes it constantly and wonders why it's a frizzy nest. She also thought she could learn style and confidence from a book. 

 

Venus is supposed to help her, but all she seems to know about is shallow fixes. Shoes, clothes, hair. There was no depth to this "Goddess". She is also prone to asking strangers if they pleasure themselves frequently. 

 

This was a teen movie (girl doesn't know how beautiful she is) with a lot of dicks thrown in. I'm so disappointed. The only character I liked was Vulcan....until he spied on Pea pleasuring herself and decided to get off himself. It was all way too creepy.

The Sound of Gravel
The Sound of Gravel: A Memoir - Ruth Wariner

The general feeling I have after finishing this book is "yuck". I want to take a shower in bleach. Ruth tells a story I cannot believe is still happening in the modern world. Polygamy, religious cults, and as usually goes with the territory: pedophilia. 

 

About halfway thru this book, Ruth has a talk with her stepsister and it was heartbreaking. Her stepsister asked her what she wanted to do when she was grown. And Ruth seriously didn't know she had a choice. She was brainwashed to believe she was simply a baby machine, doomed to live in a mud hut and popping out kids for a deadbeat husband. It brought tears to my eyes.

 

The rampant sexual abuse was enough to make you vomit. Child after child admitting she has been molested, and all the mothers say is "he said he is sorry. You must forgive him. Get over it." And so a criminal was allowed to continue his behavior, unchecked and unstopped. Sickening. 

 

I enjoyed this book. And it makes me grateful for the life I have. The safety and security I have in my marriage.

Lady Susan
Lady Susan - Jane Austen,R.W. Chapman

I don't know what the point of this story was except to accentuate how much of an epic bitch Susan was. There didn't seem to be much more to it. Wow, she was just evil.

Review: My Lady Jane
My Lady Jane - Brodi Ashton,Jodi Meadows,Cynthia Hand

Here is where I'm sure a lot of people will unfollow me, but I have read over 300 pages of this mess and I have yet to say "this is everything it was hyped to be". Spoilers ahead.

 

Jane was endearing at first. Her love of books was sweet. But like I have stated preciously, funny books never seem funny. They end up stupid or obnoxious. Aaaaaand this one did too. What was funny at first became old and nerve-grating. Like the titles of books Jane read. Etheeuhns: Historical Figures and Their Downfall, Wilderness Survival for Courtiers, Herbs and Spices Indigenous to the Spanish Highlands, volume 2, The Proper Treatment of Wounds on the Battlefield During the War of the Roses, a history. There are more but this is a taste. I get that this book is supposed to be in the style of the Princess Bride but it was still obnoxious.

 

Then there was the overly convenient plot points. Whenever someone needed an escape, a person who previously had no ability to shape shift could suddenly change and run away. It just seemed like weak writing. Again, this is just my opinion.

 

This book had its moments of humor, but mostly it fell flat and disappointed me.
