Hooked on Her (Ice Kings, #3) by: Stacey Lynn
Hooked on Her (Ice Kings, #3) - Stacey Lynn




Hooked on Her by Stacey Lynn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What began as a waltz morphs into a tango. Tessa and Jason have a bond that was years in the making, yet they never seemed able to get it right. When life throws them the chance, will they finally step up to the plate? Lynn blows hot and cold with highly electric results. Hooked on Her goes from zero to sixty and zooms away with more than just hearts.

How do you talk to an ocean
Solaris - Stanisław Lem,Steve Cox,Joanna Kilmartin

(but maybe, we should worry more about how the ocean would try to talk to us)


It's a very disturbing read from the start, and you can feel the disquiet grip you into the pages immediately, but it's pretty dense and it can get dry.


Know what this reminded me off a lot? "Moby Dick". It's those essays, and the way everyone keeps approaching that ocean from a description of the components because the whole is unfathomable. Also quite a bit of "Arrival", and the inherent difficulties of communications.


Around the middle, I found that I started to like Snaut because he was saying everything that Kalving wouldn't even admit in his own internal narrative. Snaut was a ruthless bastard that angered Kalvin, but there was this sense that the reason Kalvin got angry all the time was because he was voicing what he did not want to see.


I did not expect it to end where it did, though that is likely the fault of my vague memories of the last movie made. There is so much that it leaves you speculating on, the concepts of a god that evolves and a god cradle in that final conversation specially, with Snaut wishing to stay, and that we never see anyone else's visitor but Kalvin's (oh, and the fact that Kalvin is the only one that does not obsessively hide his, the things that says).


There a lot more odds and ends that keep running around my mind for such a short novel, so I'll likely be chewing on my book hangover for a while.

Reading progress update: I've read 90 out of 204 pages.
Solaris - Stanisław Lem,Steve Cox,Joanna Kilmartin

The way everything is totally fucked up from the beginning is amazing, even knowing how the plot will get even more so. The horror and mindscrew of this is perfect.

Hooked: A Fandom Hearts Novella - Cathy Yardley

Rodney, AKA Roderick Andrew Murray Fitzclarence the 12th Duke of St Charles (he's also an Earl), works in the US at a gaming company as a coder. Stacy is the office manager. She also hds a trust fund and trusted the wrong guy and was conned out of $$. She's also leery of men and her judgement.
This was nice and sweet. Yes, Rodney didn't clear the air, but I understood his reasons. Nicely paced with a HFN.

Halloween Bingo Squares: Cozy Mystery
Hooked on Murder - Betty Hechtman

I've had this book on my e-reader forever, and I think it will do nicely for the Cozy Mystery square.
