If this had been the first of his I read, I wouldn't have read any others
Snow - Orhan Pamuk,Maureen Freely

I'm mixed about this book. On one hand, I love the political look. On the other hand, I am so tired of books where the female characters are simply seen as symbols by the men in the story.

But the politics. That was awesome.

The Snow White Bride - Claire Delacroix

I have looked forward to seeing Alexander find his true love, and I did hope that his two sisters that he meddled with in their love lives got a bit of vengeance, too.  I have to say the way it all played out was interesting, entertaining, and enjoyable.  It had the emotional tension I like in romances; the couple definitely had a lot to work through before they could be happy.  The story Eleanor tells about her first husband and what he did to her horse was the most heartbreaking moment in the story, but it was also the moment the couple truly connected with no more doubts or fears. I enjoyed their story, it did have some slow moments, but overall I enjoyed their adventure and their love story.

When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) by Brenda Novak
When Snow Falls - Brenda Novak

Cheyanne Christensen is having one hell of a bad life. Her mother is dying of cancer and is a bitter, manipulative bitch; her sister is wild and on drugs half the time; she is in secretly in love with the same guy her BFF is actively chasing; and it's Christmas, so the artificial cheerfulness of the season is just annoying cherry on top. I really liked Cheyanne - she had every right to be a horrible person, but she is a smart, sweet, hard-working, and loyal person. So when Dylan Amos, of the infamous Amos brothers, walks into her life the chaos gets straighten out somewhat and Cheyanne finds someone she can be real with. 

 

I love Cheyanne and Dylan! They were real adults navigating the ups and downs of a relationship while dealing with their families' reputations from the rest of the small town and their prejudices. I feel they really deserved their HEA. The only part of the romance I didn't like was their first time together; Cheyanne's reasons for being a 31 year old virgin were true to her character so her ripping off her clothes so quickly seemed out of character. I really liked reading a romance between two people without money being thrown around to show "charm" and "romance". 

 

I didn't care for anyone else in this story. Eve, Chey's BFF, was too obnoxious and preaching her prejudice in the hopes of breaking up Chey and Dylan. Joe was a bitter asshole and I am really not looking forward to his story later in the series. Piper, Chey's sister, had a heartbreaking story arc but I would like to see her in updates in later books but man was she a selfish brat to Chey!

Bad Kitty Does Not Like Snow - Nick Bruel
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A cute book about Bad Kitty's first encounter with snow. The book is very short and simple, but works well for young readers. Cute and funny illustrations as usual.

I didn't like this as much as some of the other Bad Kitty books because of its briefness and simplicity. It doesn't have much of a story, but it is still a cute little book.

Plus, it comes with stickers. Stickers are fun.

To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918 - Adam Hochschild
When Snow Falls - Brenda Novak

*bookish meme created by Moonlight Reader 

 

BoB 22 starts Monday and I will be reading from my list of 150 pages or less NOOK books to whittle down my personal TBR. For this weekend I want to finish up To End All Wars, which is making me a fan of Adam Hochschild, and then finish up When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) by Brenda Novak.
