It took my five days to read a hundred and forty pages of this.
Swallowing Mercury - Wioletta Greg,Wioletta Grzegorzewska,Eliza Marciniak

Which is probably another case of "it's not you, litfic; it's me." I just... don't get it? Maybe it's more meaningful if you grew up or had family in eastern Europe? My investment was super low throughout, and I was left not really knowing what the book was either about or trying to say.

 

The format was a series of unconnected but chronologically ordered events in the life of a school girl in a very small Polish town from when she was about six through high school and the death of her father. Each event or image would take up two to six pages, and then we'd be off to the next thing. There was rarely if ever any follow up to what happened with the previous incidents

 

The descriptions were often pretty and insightful, and there was a fair bit of humour mostly found in communist bureaucracy v. reality incidents, but mostly I felt as though I were missing something.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia $2.99
Eliza and Her Monsters - Francesca Zappia

Eighteen-year-old Eliza Mirk is the anonymous creator of Monstrous Sea, a wildly popular webcomic, but when a new boy at school tempts her to live a life offline, everything she’s worked for begins to crumble.

 

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, smart, and friendless. Online, Eliza is LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of a popular webcomic called Monstrous Sea. With millions of followers and fans throughout the world, Eliza’s persona is popular. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves her digital community. Then Wallace Warland transfers to her school, and Eliza begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile. But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

 

With pages from Eliza’s webcomic, as well as screenshots from Eliza’s online forums, this uniquely formatted book will appeal to fans of Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona and Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl.

Liked it better than I thought I would!!!!!
Eliza and Her Monsters - Francesca Zappia

I really liked Eliza and her monsters a lot more than I thought I would. I really just bought the ebook because I heard a lot of readers talking about how much they really loved the book. So when I found out yesterday that it was on sell for $ 2.99, I thought to myself why not buy it.

WoW I really felt bad for Eliza when people found out who she was, and then all the feelings she went through. I can understand her panic attacks, because I get them sometimes, and I feel like I can't breathe and like I am going to pass out. I really didn't start getting into the story until she meet Wallace.

Lets talk about Wallace, boy when he told his story about why he is the way he is, boy my heart about broke for him. I did get a little upset at Wallace towards the end, but only for a few seconds, then I was in love with him again.

The ending had me almost in tears, at that is what made it a 4* review and not a 3* review. I also have to say how much I loved Eliza's brothers, they were just to cute. I really also loved her two friends that are her online friends. I loved how they reacted after the reveal in regards to trying to calm things down. 

So I am so super glad I gave this book a chance.

A Mistress To Remember
A Mistress To Remember (Birds of Paradise Book 3) - Eliza Lloyd

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

A Mistress to Remember is the third book of Eliza Lloyd’s Birds of Paradise series. I stumbled across this series in 2015 when it wasn’t yet a series and read book 2, The Darkness in the Marquess of Dane, which pretty much blew me away with how good it was! It was also the first book I read by the author so I was very impressed and wanted more!

Since I read the series out of order, an anomaly for someone who will do anything to read series in order LOL, I’m not quite sure about the concept of the title Birds of Paradise. But I know that the theme of a mistress is quite prevalent. In a way or the other, the heroines of this series were mistresses to the heroes before they became romantically involved. Book  1, Another Lover, which I read after book 2, was too short and rushed for my liking. The h was a legendary courtesan with ‘terms and conditions’ on her services that also required an exorbitant amount of money. The H, a known rake, wanted to make her his for a long time with an intensity. So finally, when the opportunity arrived, he snatched it up right away....... Well, I just wished there were more background on the H and h like the later installments in the series, more fleshed out characters too. It felt like I was missing something, that the H and h had shared some private moment or something that was never quite revealed. I’d still recommend it as the famous H of book 2, the Marquess of Dane, makes a very short appearance there.

Love their story and this author's writing.
