MIKA THE MANX CAT by D. M. Hart
Mika the Manx Cat - D. M. Hart,Darko Tomic

Mika is a Manx Cat of whom the other cats are jealous as she walks down the street. They come up with a plan to make her humble. Will they carry out their plan? Will Mika let them hurt her?

 

I liked Mika. She was a cat--proud as them all. I cannot believe the cruelty planned for her by the other cats. I loved that she had a strong self-esteem. I also liked that her self-esteem saw beyond her appearance. This story was too realistic in dealing with jealousy and self-esteem. I'm glad Mika overcame the others.

Educational
The Introvert's Guide to Online Dating - Emma Hart

The author starts a new series with a ton of humor and a lot of sexy.  If you have not yet picked up Colton & Tor's story, I would encourage you to do so.  Just like other books from Emma Hart, this one is a 1-click wonder.

 

Colton and Tori are part of a large friends group, where they basically act like they hate each other.  With the lines of love and hate blurring, the couple sneaks around and thinks that no one has taken notice.

 

Tori is starting to acknowledge her feelings and this enemies to lovers trope does not disappoint.  Colton makes a great book boyfriend.  The heat between these two is off the charts hot and a great read!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Review ~ Disappointing
Lies That Binds Us - Andrew Hart

Book source ~ Kindle First

 

Jan is reuniting with her “vacation friends” she and her ex-boyfriend Marcus hooked up with five years ago. They are rich and travel in much more affluent circles than her and Marcus, but Jan wants to recapture the fun. Except, was it as fun as she remembers?

 

Oh, for fuck’s sake. Jan is unlikeable, but the other two couples are worse. Well, ok, one of them is okay. I don’t remember her name, but she is the actress. The rest are terrible. Marcus is a decent guy. Jan is pathetic, but at least she knows she is. She comes through in the end, but otherwise, gugh.

 

Now for the writing. No. It’s awful.

 

The plot. Could have been really something, but the characters and the writing drag it down into the Pit of Despair.

 

There are current scenes and flashback scenes until it’s all current events. If the writing was better this could have worked out, but as it is, it’s annoying.

 

And as a final word, good lord, can these characters drink or what? Why would anyone think it’s fun to do nothing but drink? Especially when you’re vacationing in such a gorgeous spot as Crete? No. Just, no.

 

All-in-all I do not recommend this book.

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come
Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come - Jessica Hart

I identify as an introvert. I'm an introvert with an extroverted mother who seemed to think I had a flaw that needed to be fixed. Jessica Pan does NOT hold that view, and she makes this clear in the author's note at the opening of this book. I raise this for people who are offended that this book even exists. Listen, Pan is not betraying her people. She never stops being "one of us."

Jessica Pan, raised in Amarillo, Texas; the daughter of a Chinese father and a Jewish mother, graduate of Brown University (so she's lived in Providence, RI); lived in Beijing, Paris, Melbourne; married to an English man with whom she currently resides in London--faced the scenario of having no friends (other than her husband Sam) where she lived. Her close friends were scattered across various countries. She face the realization that she was lonely and depressed. Her goal in experimenting in a year of "extroverting" was to build a new friend group, with the kind of friends who would "help you hide the body."

In case you are shout-thinking that Pan just needs to read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking , rest assured that she has, and she even cites it. She notes frequently that introverts value and crave "deep talk," and she triumphs whenever her new strategies allow her to achieve this kind of talk with new people.

During her year of "extroverting," Pan does scary things like talking to strangers, taking improv class, sharing a story on The Moth, taking stand-up classes that lead her to doing a stand-up routine a few times, going on a solo "surprise me" adventure trip (that mysteriously leads her to Budapest), and hosting a dinner party.

Spoiler alert: by the end, she still identifies as an introvert, though she believes she may have shifted from "shy introvert" to "gregarious introvert." Most of her new friends also identify as introverts. If you are an introvert who is offended that this book even exists, please just give it a chance. You don't even have to tell anyone.

Side note: One of the "Questions about this book" posted last year (2019) was whether there was a book from an extrovert choosing to live as an introvert for a year. Pan replied, positing that such a book would be called Sorry I'm Early, I Needed to Get Out. Ironically, now that we are in a global pandemic (for people reading this in the future, I am writing this in June of 2020)--we might well end up with plenty of memoirs in the genre of "Extrovert Forced to Live Like an Introvert During Quarantine."

Amazing Grace
AmazingGrace - Lena Hart

Gracie and her parents found freedom through the Underground Railroad when she was 4. Now 18 she is heading west to get married to support her family. Logan, an ex-confederate soldier is also heading west.
This short story tackles serious subject matter. I wasn't sure how an ex confederate soldier (and former slave owner) would work as a hero. There is a discussion (as much as you can have in a novella) and this is addressed. I really liked Gracie, she stood up for herself. Would like like more at the end, it felt rushed.
