Fake out
The Wedding Hoax (Entangled Lovestruck) - Heather Thurmeier

Daisy & Cole have a history.  They did not part well.  So when the chance comes to both of them to save their respective business, they want to jump on it.  Until they find out it means being together.

 

Cole has pressure coming at him from all sides.  The personal and professional are all blending for the first time.  Daisy makes it all seem so much better.  Can they learn to keep the future bright while the darkness closes in?

 

Such a great start to the fun and sexy Hoax Series!  I really love these characters and how real they come across.  Their situation is not uncommon.  I felt they were very easy to understand and relate to.  While the story moves along, there is much heat and laughter also.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Zomcats! by Jack Strange
Zomcats! - Amanda Horan,Graeme Parker,Jack Strange

 

Zomcats! is the follow up to Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse, (click to see my review),  and one I was happy to discover. The ginger feline, Henderson, was originally brought (back) to life in that book, and he quietly stole the show! This time around, he is the rightful star of the novel. Well, he and the American president which we'll get to in a moment.

 

In this novel, we follow Henderson's travels as the American president visits the U.K., seeking help with the zombie problem. Since the Prime Minister successfully dealt with the celebrity chef zombies in Britain, President Adolf Doughnut wants to see if he can do the same to the zombies in the U.S. Since the two are in an infantile pissing contest, the Prime Minister makes the President come to the U.K. to get the requested aid.

 

President Doughnut is the amalgamation of a few different people and is totally hilarious. Just like in the first book, there are plenty of political observations and commentary here. Even though I thought the first one was a bit sharper, the sarcasm and wit are both evident here in Zomcats! as well.

 

If you are in the mood for a creature feature that contains razor sharp wit as well as bloody, gory and insanely funny zomcat kills, then this is the book for you!

 

You can get your copy here: Zomcats!

 

*I was gifted an e-copy of Zomcats! in exchange for my honest review. This is it!*

I deducted half a star despite how much I loved this ridiculous book because it was riddled with grammatical errors. But wow, this was so bad/good I couldn't help but enjoy it. If you enjoy some high Texan society drama you should pick this up. So funny.

Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book by Wallace Fairfax
Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book - Wallace Fairfax

 

Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book , ("How much more black could it be?"), is exactly what you expect and hope it to be-which is FANTASTIC!

 

 

It includes a complete discography and history of the band. It includes close up looks at each individual member, including most of the drummers that are no longer with us.

 

A bio and background information is provided on Marty Debergi, how he came to be turned on to the band, and became interested in making a documentary about them.

 

It has a few tidbits too, such as-remember when David St. Hubbins was talking about the audio books that were read by celebrities of the same last name as the author of the books? The full list is here, such as: The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson as read by Pamela Anderson.

 

Behind the scenes interviews with band members and an entire section on the horrible Jeanine Pettibone who took over as Tap's manager after Ian Faith left.

 

Everything is here: "turn it up to 11", Sh*t Sandwich, the puppet show, "Hello Cleveland!", the Stonehenge monument in danger of being crushed by a dwarf, everything...it's all here. 

 

 

If you are a "Taphead" this book cannot fail to put a smile on your face. If you aren't familiar with the band: buy this book and see the movie, and you soon will be!

 

Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book gets my highest recommendation!

 

*Thank you to Edelweiss and to the publisher for the e-ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. This is it!*

Reading progress update: I've read 65 out of 128 pages and...
Spinal Tap: The Big Black Book - Wallace Fairfax

I've been grinning the entire time! At this point, we are still going through the discography and history of the band. 

 

For instance, the album "The Sun Never Sweats" from 1975. This is the album which featured the lead single "Stonehenge." The band came up with a great idea to have a replica of a stone made as a stage prop. Unfortunately, Nigel got his measurements wrong and Tap ended up with this:

 

 

 

 

The second song on "The Sun Never Sweats:"  "Daze of Knights of Old" 

"elucidates on themes of King Arthur's era and why his table was round, and not rectangular, like most tables."

 

This album came out after "Shark Sandwich." For which Spinal Tap received a two word review: "Shit Sandwich."

 

 

 

Sadly, this was not their first two word review. They previously received one that simply said: "Spinal Crap."

 

 

I am now up to Spinal Tap in the 80's. Of which Nigel said:

 

"The 80's were a blur, really. And not just because I lost my glasses."
