Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans by Don Browne
Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans - Don Brown

Tells the story that most of us are now familiar with. The artwork uses water colors so nothing is defined, especially people. That makes the work less impactful, as there is very little emotion coming from the pages. The most defined people were the politicians. It felt too emotionally distant and academic for me.

Update #2

 

I got another 50 minutes of reading in while doing the laundry. I spent it reading Just Mercy as that has been on July's TBR pile for the longest. 

 

Highlights

Books read: 4; 2 graphic novels, 2 ebooks

Time read: 4 hours and 55 minutes

Challenges: 0

 

Next is to review another bunch of books for COYER and get ready for BoB23 (August).

_____________________________________________________________________

Update #1

 

I got 30 minutes of reading done yesterday morning (yay kids' swim class!). That was it. So to make an even small dent in this read-a-thon, I cleared my calendar for today so I could read. So far today I have read for 3 hours and 35 minutes and got a lot done. I've read Drowned City: Hurrican Katrina and New Orleans by Don Brown (graphic novel), Gaijin: American Prisoner of War by Matt Faulkner (graphic novel), finished Bespoke: A Tiny Christmas Tale by Amanda Dykes (historical romance), and At Your Request (Apart From the Crowd #0.5) by Jen Turano (historical romance).

 

Probably won't get to anymore reading until I go do laundry tonight, so maybe one more update from me. I hope all my fellow participants in 24 in 48 are doing well and getting books off their TBR done.

not for me
A New Orleans Threesome - Louisa Bacio

Lily had been walking to a job interview on Bourbon street when some drunk guys were flagging her down to go party with them. She felt the power flow through her. Then she knew their thoughts and what they had planned for her. Power came out f her hands and broke the windshield of the car and threw the guy that was out of the car backwards. Then Lily took off running and went into the store and decided to forget the interview. Trevor was a werewolf and his lover Lawrence/Law was a vampire who was one hundred and fifty years old and had been thirty when he had been turned. In their level downstairs from the store they ran an after hours book store. Lily told Trevor she had come to them for help. Trevor could tell she wasn’t human and felt the power in her. Lily ended up shattering a lightbulb as her powers grew whens he was frightened or frustrated. Lily said Trevor was a werewolf and Lawrence a vampire and she had come for a reason- for their help. She had said she had read about the two of them and their bookstore and then she started having dreams about them and her dreams had led her there. Lily felt if she didn’t get control of her power she would end up killing someone. Trevor had been living on the streets and Law find him beaten almost to death in an alley. Now Trevor wanted to help any other who needed any help. Law embodied the cool and and collected whereas Trevor lived in the wild ruled by his emotions. Trevor offered to let Lily stay with then as she needed support and security’ They also gave her a jon=b to work the store in the daylight hours. Lily got up at night for a drink and saw the men having sex and then she watched every night as for some reason Lily couldn’t complete the act of having sex no one or no toy would give her relief. Both men desired Lily and asked her if she wanted to join them. Lily had been plagued by the same  nightmare for years. But recently it had grown more frequent. The demon of her dreams wanted her purity, her virginity, her soul. Law was working on figuring Lily out and her powers and otherness. He felt part of ehr was a witch. Lily’s research kept bringing her back to the Greek God Arimanius, something about the black and white drawing reminded Lily of the demon in her nightmare. Arimanius was listed as a God of the underworld. Trevor,Lily, and Lawrence had grown up without a traditions family and now they were drawn together.

I must have picked this up on accident as I don’t care for M/M sexual relationships or menages. This was more of a rerotic read for me. The relationships between Lily, Trevor, and Law seemed slow moving to me. I basically skipped the sex scenes just not for me. I did enjoy the authors descriptions of New Orleans and the different articles both Lily and Law researched. This was a quick read just didn’t enjoy the M/M and M/F/M. In the end this just wasn’t for me. Also I was disappointed how the ending felt so rushed. I am sure others will enjoy this but as I said this just wasn’t for me.

Part of Summer Reading Goals
The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case: Race, Law, and Justice in the Reconstruction Era - Michael A. Ross

Ross looks at a once famous case that has been largely forgotten by people today. A kidnapping of a young child who is later found with a black Creole. In discussing the case, Ross shows how Reconstruction, racism, and changing times influenced the case and its outcome. A very interesting and engrossing read.

4 STAR Release Day Review! A New Orleans Threesome (The Vampire, The Witch and the Werewolf #1) Louisa Bacio!
A New Orleans Threesome - Louisa Bacio

 

 

Haunted by paranormal abilities she can't control and plagued by nightmares about a demon that seeks her soul, Lily Anima travels to New Orleans in search of salvation. She enlists the help of an unlikely couple: a vampire, Lawrence Justice, and a werewolf, Trevor Pack. The attraction is immediate and fierce.

 

There's only one problem.

Lily's a virgin. And whatever paranormal problem she's having is what has kept her that way. Every time she's tried to do the deed, something stops her.

Together, the trio encounters magic and unspeakable evil, and Trevor and Lawrence attempt to help Lily turn her powers into a gift rather than a curse. Ultimately, to get the demon off her back, Lily's men will have to show her all the wicked ways the three of them can come together.

 

Warning: Read at your own risk. This book is filled to the brim with steamy m/m sex, a virgin who wants in on the action, and a c*ckblocking demon.

 


Whew! I just got back from a steamy and exciting visit to New Orleans, where I met Lily, Trevor and Lawrence. Picture this: A werewolf and a vampire, two very sexy males who provide lots of hot and steamy vibes all on their own, decide to rescue the damsel in distress, Lily who is having bit of a personal crisis, and invite her into their lives. With me so far, because that part is easy; all three are then caught up in some emotional turbulence and Trevor and Law have to decide if they want to mess with their relationship dynamic and Lily has to overcome some issues. Needless to say the romance part of this threesome starts off a bit rocky and heats up to blazing hot with some really hot sex scenes including mm, mmf, mfm scenes. The relationship is not the only thing that keeps readers glued to the pages, there is quite a bit of suspense and thrills added when the demon who haunts Lily nightmares turns out to be real in this steady to fast paced plot.

 

This visit to New Orleans turned out to be quite exciting as I kept up with this strong, captivating characters and since Louisa Bacio painted such vivid imagery, it was very easy for me to believe I was actually there. In fact the only thing wrong with this visit was when a couple of times during the dialogue, I felt as if I missed something, not sure what or why and it didn’t stop me from enjoying the book, so I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series when it re-releases.
