Station does not stop love
The Mysterious Governess - Beverley Oakley

Some people get their just desserts and others get the very best. The main couple is Lissa and Ralph with a couple pairings around them. Lissa is a governess to earn her way in this life because she is illegitimate. Ralph is above her station but they feel a pull that draws them together. Their struggles to be with each other kept me reading this story.

I received a copy of this through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

DNFs
His Very Own Girl - Carrie Lofty
The Silent Governess - Julie Klassen

My reading was bogged down because I kept these two boring romances on my currently reading list and just kept finding other books tor read. I gave these books each a day and still couldn't muster the energy to put into reading more. Cutting my losses now so that I can make room for more interesting books.

 

His Very Own Girl at the 20% mark - tried to read this for BL-opoly, so I will take the $1.00 and move on.

 

The Silent Governess at the 29% mark - tried to read this for Pop Sugar challenge, but I have more than enough books that could fit the prompt.

Friday Reads - June 16, 2017
Heat Wave (Nerds of Paradise Book 4) - Merry Farmer
His Very Own Girl - Carrie Lofty
The Silent Governess - Julie Klassen
Midnight Unbound - Lara Adrian
Midnight in Legend, TN: Small Town Romance in the Great Smoky Mountains (The McClains of Legend, Tennessee Book 1) - Magdalena Scott
The Captain's Kidnapped Beauty. Mary Nichols - Mary Nichols

Free Friday BL-opoly Read: Heat Wave by Merry Farmer, in honor of the heat wave the UK is facing this weekend and into next week. This is one of 30 novellas that RT convention 2017 commissioned for its Magnolias and Moonshine campaign for Atlanta; it is also part of her Nerds of Paradise series. It is a contemporary romance with interracial couple. 104 pages = $2.00.

 

BL-opoly Read (pre-shake up): Trying to get through His Very Own Girl by Carrie Lofty. It's boring me at the 20% mark, so if it doesn't improve by the 50%, I am going to DNF. I can't wait for D-Day so at least something happens.

 

Pop Sugar Read: The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen. This is so boring and a bit unrealistic. Christian romance set in rural Regency England. I'm giving it until 50% to get better before I pull the DNF card.

 

COYER Summer Vacation Reads: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breeds #14.5) by Lara Adrian, because I wanted something different than historical romance. Since it is a short book, I am also going to try and knock out Midnight in Legend, TN by Magdalena Scott as well.

 

Ripped Bodice Bingo Read: The Captain's Kidnapped Beauty by Mary Nichols. I just finished this one for the "person in uniform on the cover" square. A Georgian-era romance that takes place in Lisbon and London. I borrowed from the library, so a Library Love Challenge book to boot.

 

So my son's last day of Kindergarten was yesterday. I can't believe my little boy is going to be a 1st grader already. I forgot how much energy little boys can have, lol.

Friday Reads for June 9, 2017
Just Mercy - Bryan Stevenson
Poison Pills: The Untold Story of the Vioxx Drug Scandal - Tom Nesi
The Silent Governess - Julie Klassen

My son and I have been suffering from severe allergies the last week or so. I am hoping two library borrows, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson and Poison Pills: The Untold Story of the Vioxx Drug Scandal by Tom Nesi will help me power through the Benadryl fog I have been under. I have a BL-opoly roll for tomorrow to help round out my weekend reading; plus I am taking my time reading The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen, which I reserve for Sunday reading.

 

Have a happy reading weekend!

Friday Reads for June 2nd, 2017
Among the Wicked: A Kate Burkholder Novel - Linda Castillo
Not My Father's Son: A Memoir - Alan Cumming
Silent Governess, The - Julie Klassen

I got a ticket to see Wonder Woman tonight and I can not express how damn excited I am to see it! WW is my all-time favorite comic character and I grew up watching the tv show (in reruns). To finally get her story on the big screen is serious wish fulfillment.

 

On the reading front, I have Among the Wicked by Linda Castillo to read for BL-opoly. I borrowed Not My Father's Son by Alan Cummings from OverDrive for the Pop Sugar challenge. Also for the PS challenge, I pulled The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen off my physical TBR pile to read for the "UBS find" prompt.

 

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
