Booknote: The China Collectors
The China Collectors: America's Century-Long Hunt for Asian Art Treasures - Karl E. Meyer,Shareen Blair Brysac

The topic was interesting, but this writing in this book was a bit dry at times; the result is that the book was a slow read for me. Once you get past the first chapter, which lays out a lot of basic historical background, things do get a bit more interesting.

Hate F*@k: Part Three
Hate Fuck: Part Three - Ainsley Booth

 

3,5 Stars.
A good conclusion for a fairly decent first series. I had in general a good time with this particular story from the beginning till the end and i'm happy to say every new part is better than the previous one. The series won't end here, but this installment is in fact the last one with Cole and Hailey as the main characters.


As the story continues Hailey finds herself tangled up in a big mess she has no in idea how to get out of. She will have to be strong and ready to make decisions she never thought possible. At least until Cole shows up.. He will, won't he?


Yeah he will, we are talking about Cole Parker after all. He vowed to protect her no matter what and that's what he'll do. Well, that and of course have absurd amounts of hot, steamy sex with her.
The sex scenes are nicely written and very stimulating.


Now for the bigger plot that unravels more and more, there is an interesting and encouraging development that has to do with the whole of Horus Group team. Many new clues will make their appearance along with some big twists.


As for our couple, yes they get their HEA in a very sweet and well polished way. I wasn't very fond of them at first but i warmed up to Cole and Hailey a lot and i ended up really like those two.
I want to see how the rest of the story will continue and of course i will definitely follow the other couples.




THOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK

- Dual POV, as always.
- OMG, her mother!!! That's a twist!
- I like Hailey's younger sister, Alison.
- Jason and Ellie!! There is something there, interesting.
- Hot, Hot!
- There is still an amature feeling in this story, not quite as awkward as someone might think, but just a subtle notion.

Booknote: Zaya
Zaya HC - Huang-jia Wei,Jean-david Morvan

From my review:

 

"I have to say I had a bit of a hard time with this one. The art is interesting, to say the least. I would call it a little surrealistic at times. The plot is not totally clear as it starts in an art exhibit and moves to a man getting pursued and shot. Is it some espionage thing we may ask as the comic starts?"

Joining the 2015 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge

I did this challenge last year, and I did pretty well. This is a challenge that works for me because I do read quite a bit from these services. Thus I am going to try again for this year.

 

This is the first of various reading challenges I will attempt this year. Stay tuned as I do the sign-up posts for the others. If you use Netgalley and/or Edelweiss, this may be a reading challenge for you as well. Click on the link so you can check out the details, and I already have two titles listed as completed (reviews will come soon).

 

Happy reading!
