I'M AFRAID OF THE VAMPIRE STATE BUILDING BY Patty Greenberg Wollman and Merrill Feinstein-Feit
I'm Afraid of Vampire State Building - P... I'm Afraid of Vampire State Building - Patti Greenberg Wolfman,Merril Feinstein-Felt

Cute sayings from 2-7 year olds. I laughed out loud. Some of the ideas were funny and have a unique perspective.

Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks
Use of Weapons - Iain M. Banks

Series: Culture #3

 

Well that was disappointing. I was tempted to give it 3 stars overall while reading (before I got to the end) since although the present-day chapters were fairly interesting, the past chapters were duller and sometimes maudlin. Then I got to the “twist” at the end and was disappointed by it. I had caught the references to it earlier and was hoping I was wrong but… nope. If it weren’t Banks, I’d probably drop my rating lower, but I guess I’ll keep it at two stars.

 

The present-day chapters follow Cheradine Zakalwe as he’s recruited by Diziet Sma (I like her first name) to convince this old political to come out of retirement to put off a war. Zakalwe’s skill is winning wars, basically, so the “past” chapters show various scenes from his past, some of them boring and some of them brutal. These interleaved chapters make up the book. There’s also a drone called Skaffen-Amtiskaw who starts off as a bit of a jerk but becomes more interesting as the book goes along. Sma doesn’t have much of a personality, unfortunately, despite her cool name.

 

I read this for the Water Works square in booklikes-opoly since there’s water on the cover. It turns out that it’s a grounded battleship in front of a city on the cover and it seems like it was grounded in drydock in a shipyard so there would be water around it somewhere, so I think the stuff that looks like water is water. Hopefully that clears up some confusing elements of the cover (while opening a whole new can of worms as far as confusing context goes). Anyway, the book is 411 pages, so that’s another $5 for my bank, bringing my total to $48.

Learn woodwork; metalwork; they will not make you a carpenter or a blacksmith any more than mastering writing will make you a clerk.

REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Imagines (Imago #2) by N.R. Walker
Imagines - N.R. Walker
Imagines is the second book in the Imago series, and we reunite with Lawson and Jack six months after they first met. Their relationship is still going strong, and these two immediately gave me back the warm fuzzies! Jack wants Lawson to move in, but as far as Lawson is concerned, it will happen eventually, it is inevitable, so why rush it? They decide to take a holiday together, and it is as they are sorting out the details of where they would like to go, that Lawson receives an email regarding work, and they decide to kill two birds with one stone.
 
I won't say anymore about the story as I don't want to spoil it. All I will say is that these complement each other in every way. Jack is the cheese to Lawson's crackers, you just can't imagine one without the other. Their families are absolutely perfect for both of them too. There is some angst in this one, that had my heart pounding just that little bit harder, but I am more than happy with the ending and the epilogue that came after.
 
Exceptionally well written, this book will grip and delight as you follow these two men. There were no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, and the whole book was a warm fuzzy-fest of goodness! Absolutely loved it, most definitely recommend it; but now, if you will excuse me, I'm off to read Butterfly Hunter by Julie Bozza, as recommended by N.R. Walker in the special mention at the end.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Her Dangerous Mistake by Erin M. Leaf
Her Dangerous Mistake - Erin M. Leaf
Her Dangerous Mistake is a standalone steamy romance that just happens to involve DRAGONS!!! Moira hasn't had it easy, but she never expected to be chased and shot at, just for looking at a spreadsheet. Moira is all alone in the world, but she remembers a friend her father had and decides to head for him as her last hope. Neil is happy running his bar, Dracona, and ignoring his parents and the Dragon Council in general. The Dragon gene seems to be diminishing as the generations move on, but Neil doesn't seem to have any dilution of powers. When these two meet up, it is explosive and hot - quite literally.
 
This book is a fast-paced page turner, full of romance and shadowy intentions. Moira is a strong character, although she doesn't think she is. Neil is used to fighting his parents and the council by himself. Put these two together and you get an intriguing story that will definitely leave you wanting more. I loved this book and hope that there is more to come. Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this was a wonderful book and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
