DNF: The Mirror Sisters
The Mirror Sisters - V.C. Andrews

No stars.

 

Possibly one of the worst books I've read from the VC Andrews ghost writer. 22% in and the thought of anymore makes me want to cringe. It's about identical twins. All I'm getting is how identical and how special they are. And I'm fed up already. The mother is an overbearing bitch who wants her super speshul twins to be identical in every way down to thoughts. She's not allowing them to play with other children because they might disrupt the twin's special identicalness. It's the same thing over and over and over. It's ridiculous and I can't stomach any more of this book.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Gallery Threshold, Pocket Books for the chance to view the title.

Juliet's Answer
Juliet's Answer: One Man's Search for Love and the Elusive Cure for Heartbreak - Glenn Dixon

I found the premise of this book engaging—a High School English teacher from Canada takes a journey to heal his broken heart to a place famous for its literary romantic roots. But Dixon's real-life story of unrequited love did not feel genuine to me; the friendship so far from a romance that it almost seemed invented for the sake of the story. While I especially loved the idea that there are people who write letters from Juliet, I wondered why they would let someone so inept in a relationship offer advice to anyone. In contrast, the other letter writers seemed so thoughtful and sincere, their carefully crafted notes proved they were really just sounding boards for the letter writer, while Dixon seemed to revel in his own awkward responses. I kept thinking I would be disappointed if I took the time to write a letter and got a response back from him. The classroom scenes that are interspersed with the ones set in Italy follow the arc of Dixon's tale too neatly; honestly, I would have preferred the entire story told in Italy, since the people Dixon meets are lively and fun, and far more interesting than the bland woman he is pining for back home. His description of Verona, though, is terrific, the city came alive for me and truly made me want to experience it myself.

The Handyman by Bentley Little
The Handyman - Bentley Little

Typical Bentley. He has a knack for taking a seemingly innocent type of character and turning him into something that gives you the chills and leaves you feeling uneasy. In this case a run of the mill handyman who not only does shoddy work, but throw in some Vietnamese voodoo witchcraft, and you have a handyman from hell.

 

 

This one was creepy as heck, but fun read. Recommended for horror fans.

Ostatnio trwa zamieszanie związane z kosztami przesyłki zakupów do Polski. [Aktualizacja] Problem naprawiono i nie są naliczane opłaty za przesłąnie czytników. Wciąż w cenniku Amazonu jest informacja, że zakupy o wartości 30 EUR wysyłane są do Polski bezpłatnie. Niestety, kiedy dodamy czytniki do koszyka, dodane są koszty dostawy. Można jednak zwrócić się do wsparcia o zwrot niesłusznie naliczonej opłaty. Warto wybrać kontakt telefoniczny, oddzwaniają z Dublina osoby mówiące po polsku. Najlepiej zadzwonić jeszcze przed finalizacją zakupu i upewnić się co do kwoty obciążenia.

Korzystając z moich odsyłaczy przy zakupach telefonów, motywujecie mnie do dalszej pracy :)

Reawaken (Under My Skin, #2) by Christina Lee Review
Reawaken - Christina Lee

osing his adoring husband shattered Tristan Rogers's world. For the past few years, he’s been going through the motions, running their dog grooming business while hiding the loneliness he feels down to his bones. When he witnesses an ugly breakup between a pretentious customer and his boyfriend, Tristan can’t help but intervene. Something about the unassuming younger man calls to him, and he can’t help wondering if he’s experienced some heartache of his own.

Life took a tragic turn for Jonas “West” Hollis as a teen, and he’s felt indebted to his overbearing lover ever since. Tristan’s kindness draws him from the start, but with his dreams finally in reach, West can’t risk getting close to someone else. Not now that he can live his life and stand on his own merit.

From innocent texts to companionable rides on Tristan’s boat, what starts as an unexpected friendship between the men sparks into undeniable attraction. Neither are ready for anything deeper than a couple of passionate nights wrapped in each other’s arms but their connection becomes too intense for either to ignore. If Tristan and West want to heal their broken hearts, they’ll need a considerable amount of trust and courage—not only in themselves but also each other.

 

Review

 

This is a quiet melancholy book where Tristen and West find themselves again and then each other after years of grief. 

They become friends. The sexy time are pretty smoking hot and really deepen their relationship. 

This book is a bit like a cup of warm teas with a little bitter and sweet.
