Reading progress update: I've read 50%.
Kidnapped by the Pirate: Gay Romance - Keira Andrews

Two guys basically in a lock-down, stuck with each other. I like to see how enemies-to-lovers situation progresses but feeling claustrophobic-and-bored at the same time? O.o

So sowwyy...... (stars flying off) *cringe, cringe*

I want to see how a character bends and twists and changes and reveals him/herselves in different circumstances. Close quarters are too sheltered, too stagnant, imho :/

Review of Jefferson the Virginian by Dumas Malone
Jefferson the Virginian: Jefferson and His Time, Volume 1 - Dumas Malone

This was the first in a six volume series on the life of Thomas Jefferson. This was a wonderful read that took us from Jefferson's birth to the day he left for Europe following the Revolutionary War. The detail was incredible, but it was written in a way that it never felt overwhelming and the story never felt stale. The reader develops a real appreciation for how Jefferson later became the famous and even legendary American figure.

My only criticism would be that I felt the book did not look at Jefferson's personal life in enough detail, but as a political history, this will be a series to treasure.

Pib's Dragon (Twisted Fairy Tales) by Beany Sparks
Pib's Dragon (Twisted Fairy Tales) - Beany Sparks

The first half was OK, I was thinking 3-3.5 stars, but second part was full of info dumps and unnecessary details.
Uber convenient magical abilities and handy magical artifacts popping up at the times of need don't add stars either.

Royal Blood by Tiamat
Royal Blood - Tiamat

The rating will most likely depend on whether you read this story as a stand alone or withing the series. As a part of the series, it might easily fetch 5 stars.

The book starts in a humorous fairy tale fashion, pulling you right in: the characters are somewhat familiar, the setting is typical, the story is easy to follow. You know this set-up, you move along, quite sure of yourself and the boys in the tale.

However, just as you begin to think "oh, I know where it's going!", the unusual (especially where the puzzled Prince is concerned) turn of events shifts the story line and you find yourself as puzzled as the Prince himself. Series of hot, steamy and very passionate almost - but not quite! - dub-con scenes follow, with still enough plot and humor to go around.

In the end, all parties get what they deserve and want. 

No kittens, tigers or babies were actually hurt (much) during the production of this book :D

My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency #1) by J.L. Langley
My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency #1) - J.L. Langley

Not as good as the first time around, maybe 3.5 stars.

Insane amount of characters with nick-names, titles and birth-names drove me almost to the mad house this time. How did I keep up in the first place, I have no idea - this is clearly some kind of name porn read. Chadwick, Coldwell, Cony, Jeremy, Jensen, Benson, Braxton.... what the hell happened to all the other letter in the alphabet? Why so many of them have to start with the same letter? 

In contrast, Nate calling Aiden "boy" in the second part drove me crazy, too. It's your spouse, you moron! And a prince! Show some respect! :/ Arghhh!

 

On sci-fi side... why not install GPS on your lift/car or a tracker app on your tablet?

There are inconsistencies and holes in the story, but - whatevers, it was still a fun read :)
