MY RATING~ 4.5/5 STARS - GRADE=A-
The Dead List - Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

 

~MY THOUGHTS~

 

I recently read an arc with a similar story to this…Pretty Dead Girls…I didn't really like that one, and this had a similar feel to it in the beginning, minus the mean girls.  I was worried but it wasn't long before I realized this was different in a lot of ways.  This only had me eye-rolling a couple moments and the other had me constantly eye-rolling.  In this, the mystery surprised me, actually.  The characters were likable…and the best part…when the MC is being chased down by the bad guy, she actually does the smart thing, at least 80% of the time.  My issue and this could be a tad spoiler-ish, is with the promiscuity of 17-year-olds. I can't read explicit sex scenes when the MC's are under 18.  It's just weird.  If she had just left that out of the book, it would have been a 5-star all the way.

not for me
Love Songs & Other Lies: A Novel - Jessica Pennington

Virginia/Vee  has known Anders and Logan since elementary school. Logan is Vee’s best friend. Vee had dropped everything to join a band tour with Logan for three months. The tour would also be televised.    Logan’s band is calle Your Future X. When Vee gets to the buses they will be on Vee meets Reese who is the bassist. Vee has heard a lot about Reese and Logan quickly tells Reese “she is like our sister “ when he makes some come on to her comments. Logan had told Vee about the job that would save Vee from summer break with her parents. Then Vee finds out she had not really been hired but as far as the band went she was their manager. Vee almost left to go back home but didn’t want to call her  parents for a return ticket and Vee decides to stay with the band. Then he comes toward her - the last person she wanted to see - Cameron. Cam. It had been almost two years since Vee had seen Cameron.  Logan knows how to push Vee’s buttons. Logan and Vee had a friends with benefits thing for about two months but only making out. Vee didn’t want to go farther and decided to end that relationship before it ended up ruining their friendship. But now Vee wasn’t always sure what Logan met when he was using sarcasm, Cam had heard Ginny/Vee talking to her grandmother and then he seen her at school eventually Vee and Cam got involved with each other. Cam’s parents had died in an accident and Cam had received enough money to live on. He had been living in California but after his parents death he moved to be close to his grandmother who was in the same nursing home as Vee’s and that is how he heard her voice and wanted to meet her. Cam had wanted to start over with no baggage so why he had moved from California.   Anders had advertised for needing a new guitarist and cam went to audition and joined the band. Vee had been the manager of the band Your Future X and wrote most of their songs.

I liked this book but i had very mixed feelings about this book. It just didn’t flow right for me. I don’t know maybe I missed something along the way. I liked the story yet it ended rather abruptly for me. If Cam wanted to stay out of the spotlight , why did he go with the band that was to be televised? I like they treated Vee with respect.There did seem to be unresolved business in this book. I did  like all the character sin this book. But as i said I had mixed feelings about the book.

Trope soup, and not in an entertaining way.
Someone To Love (A Westcott Novel) - Mary Balogh

I finally hit my DNF point about 60% through when I realised that I was never going to reconcile myself to the fact that the hero, an English duke raised in England, was secretly a king fu master. My level of BUT WHY!? was too high for anything but the most riveting of adventures to keep me going, and nothing else in this book was that. (But why is: when he was studying at... Harrow or somewhere... he met a Chinese martial arts master by chance and he taught him the secrets of kung fu. The book answered none of the questions I had about that, most of which revolved around why it was a plot point at all).

 

The rest of the hero's (non kung fu related) persona revolved around being very rich, very fashionable and very bored. I feel like the author maybe watched the  Anthony Andrews version of The Scarlet Pimpernel one too many times (not that there's anything wrong with that!)

 

Meanwhile the heroine was raised in one of those Quaker Anarchist orphanages that don't teach you about the class system, so she hits finding out that she's the legitimate daughter of an Earl with zero knowledge of anything, and proceeds to insist on being simple and true to herself and as good as anyone and hiring all her friends as maids. ("A Quaker Anarchist is guided through London society by a Kung Fu master," quoth a friend, "that sounds pretty good, actually." YOU WOULD THINK SO! Alas, the author doesn't lean into it.)

 

One would think that the 1810s would be a perfect time to declare war on ruffles, given the neoclassical turn in women's fashion around then, but the author disagrees, and claims that All The Other Girls dressed in an overly fussy manner (I was pretty confused about the period generally. Queen Charlotte is on the throne, and they're at war in France, but it's all ruffled dresses and dancing the waltz. WHEN IS THIS SET!?).

 

I may be obsessing over details? It may be because I don't care about the plot? Since there's literally no conflict and next to no romantic tension between the main characters? This underlined by all scenes being told and retold two or three times. In any case, enough is enough.

 

WHY WAS HE A KUNG FU MASTER? WHY!?
