My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency #1) by J.L. Langley
My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency #1) - J.L. Langley

Not as good as the first time around, maybe 3.5 stars.

Insane amount of characters with nick-names, titles and birth-names drove me almost to the mad house this time. How did I keep up in the first place, I have no idea - this is clearly some kind of name porn read. Chadwick, Coldwell, Cony, Jeremy, Jensen, Benson, Braxton.... what the hell happened to all the other letter in the alphabet? Why so many of them have to start with the same letter? 

In contrast, Nate calling Aiden "boy" in the second part drove me crazy, too. It's your spouse, you moron! And a prince! Show some respect! :/ Arghhh!


On sci-fi side... why not install GPS on your lift/car or a tracker app on your tablet?

There are inconsistencies and holes in the story, but - whatevers, it was still a fun read :)

Shatterproof by Xen Sanders

This book didn't work for me. I kept getting distracted by characters' musings, which resulted in skimming pages. The ending was so-so, pretty anticlimactic.

Ink and Shadows (Ink and Shadows #1) by Rhys Ford
Ink and Shadows - Rhys Ford

While reading the length of this book, one star. <----- That pretty much sums up the state of editing in this book. Hence the rating.


I was sooooo looking froward to this book! This is pre-Kai Gracen universe, I was told. But the moment I dug in.... *sigh* I expected horror elements, of course, but not like this :/

This is a horror, alright. This. Is. Frigging terrible. Who "edited" this book? They really need to be fired. Like 3 years ago. Before this mess came out :/

Warning: Misplaced modifiers, POV ping-pong, adjectives (ab)used as nouns.

I lost the story behind this terror! :/ Sure, horror was never my poison, but it's on me, not the author. I still love Kai Gracen, but he certainly received much more attention from people who somewhat know how to apply English grammar to a written text. It wasn't perfect, but it was readable. Lack of editing in its entirety, however, I cannot forgive. Not where it comes to a published book. Not when that book costs you 7 bucks :/

I am beyond disappointed and this.... this close to DNF.

66% After acquiring a massive headache that not even sake can heal, I am DNF-ing. My brains says No. More!

Borrowing Blue (Made Marian #1) by Lucy Lennox
Borrowing Blue: A Made Marian Novel - Lucy Lennox

I loved - loved - the way the book started.

An offer of a pretend relationship, a quick (but lingering) kiss from a straight stranger, sadness, laughter, hurt, comfort, giggles, a promise of a revenge. It was fun.

But somehow along the way the book turned into a sex scenes marathon and a parade of cheating characters. Married and singles alike (except for the MCs, of course) slept around like no one's business, tho to be fair, always off pages. Brides and grooms alike were abandoned at the altar left and right. Left and right.

- I don't mind cheating characters, but this was way over the top :/
- GFY. A warning: do not dive in thinking it's the theme of this book. Tristan's sexuality and his past are complicated.
- Instalove. I didn't mind it here either. Two people, no strings attached, having fun and falling for each other head over heels in less than a week. Been there. Happens.

So, skipping all the sex and the cheating pandemic, this books is a pretty decent read: 4.25 stars.

Taking into account all the sex and the cheating pandemic, this book was overwhelming: 3 stars.

PS All of you who enjoy sex scenes, please, disregard my rating.

Art Models 7: Dynamic Figures for the Visual Arts (Art Models series)
Art Models 7: Dynamic Figures for the Visual Arts - Maureen Johnson,Douglas Johnson (I got an e-copy from NetGalley last year, in exchange for an honest review.)

I didn't review this one as soon as I got an ebook copy, due to various reasons (first and foremost, my lack of an attention span, I suppose), and what a shame this is. The poses it contains are definitely interesting and inspiring, and any artist will likely get at least a few ideas just by looking at them, dynamic and varied as they are. Besides, the models aren't all cut from the same mold, and feature people who aren't necessarily of the very lean and/or very muscular kind, which is great in terms of variation, and allows to get a better feeling of the human anatomy no matter height or weight.

Since what I got was a review copy, I only had the PDF, not the CD-Rom. What I could see in it already inspired me, but I think the book really does wonder when you have the whole package: from what I understand, the pictures on the CD can be viewed from different angles, thus making the poses even more interesting to work with.

This is definitely a book/CD I'll buy for myself.
