Reading progress update: I've read 12%.
Sheikh's Scandal (The Chatsfield) - Lucy Monroe

For the first time in her life, she craved touch worse than dark chocolate during that most inconvenient time of the month.

First off, TMI.

Secondly, here's the very next sentence :

"You are an addiction," he accused.

These two have had all of two minutes together in the book. I'm not even joking. The awkward meet in my last status update led to 30 seconds in an elevator. Addiction...how?

Why do I do this to myself?
Convicted - Aleatha Romig

The same problems I had with the first two books (e.g. exclamation points a plenty and telling not showing) were repeated again in this 3rd book.  The way this author writes is just not to my liking, so after giving her 3 chances, I'm done with this author.   I felt a lot while reading this, but I don't believe any of these feelings were the author's intention... or maybe it was.  Maybe she's laughing at the ridonkulousness of her own books and "success" as she gleefully jumps into a plastic kiddie pool full of dollar bills.  

 

 

 

My feels from start to finish.

WTF?
Plush - Kate Crash

Uhm... 

 

*scratching my head*

 

*sigh*

 

I wasn't going to write a review at all, but I figured I was on a another-dud-book trend anyway, so I may as well leave some reviews for other books that had me questioning my sanity.  The writing style was not my cuppa at all.  The author tries way too hard to be lyrical, poetic, or... something, but all she did was make me scoff and roll my eyes therefore taking me out the "story" or forming any connection with the main character.  I could not connect with her at all, so if the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghost Busters showed up to swipe her ass off a roof, I wouldn't have cared at all.  In fact, I would have cheered him on.  The relationship between the MC and her brother bordered on disturbing, but I don't know if that was me reading between lines I didn't want to cross or the ambiguity of the writing.  I didn't understand why another character would be interested in the mess that was the MC.  And the ending was... honestly, who cares?  

 

The book made as much sense as this sign
