Reading progress update: I've read 60%.
The Bunny and the Billionaire (Dreamspun Desires Book 43) - Louisa Masters

Why authors feel it's OK to introduce a nosy, pushy, inconsiderable and overall annoying female character aka "best friend" into a perfectly good if a tad slow story? To compensate for angst? Because it's not working. All I am thinking about right now is how many stars I should take off.


I hope it won't cross Ben's mind to introduce Dani to Malik.

Sacrati by Kate Sherwood

Book, I am very upset with you. Your meager 407 are the longest 407 pages I've ever read. Ever. Even "1001 Nights" wasn't that long when I read it last. 

If it wasn't for the empty banter between the characters and the small pockets of cute nothingness or dull brooding or any other unnecessary details that can be easily done outside of the book (like little ficlets), the whole reading experience would have been much more pleasant.

Rest in peace now. I am glad I am finally free of you.

PS
It's not a bad story, just the way it's told that didn't agree with me.

An American Lamb in Europe by Rob Colton
An American Lamb in Europe - Rob Colton

This thing with the Russians is really starting to piss me off. Another "theme"  that seems to be popular lately.

 

Need an average bad guy? Grab a Russian! Need a brutal murderer? Grab two more! Mobsters? Hey, they are a bunch a dime, why not pocket another six and store them in a cool place, until you need another psychopath? What, Russians are the only nation with the homicidal maniacs on the loose?

 

I am so fed up with this BS! 

ONE STAR

Clockwork Heart - Heidi Cullinan

I tried, I really really tried :/

 

I made it to 60% (barely) and it was either me or the book. Guess who had to go.

 

Originally I gave this book 1.75 stars. Let me correct that now. Book, you're demoted. 1 star. I was bored to tears by the pity fest and the long lists of who did what and where and only sometimes how they felt while doing it.

 

PS
A warning: brush up on your French and German before you read this book.

 

I dislike the use of foreign languages without translation immensely, no matter if I know the language or not. It's disruptive and annoying. Worse, if the author gets the foreign language wrong.


But I get it, Johann is Austrian, he is a foreign element in this book, so it's OK for him to speak German, I guess.

 

Conny, tho? WTF? He is French. We know he speaks French even if it's written in English, cause - obvious reasons. So why does he switch from his (English) French and to (French) French within one paragraph? I know why - to annoy the crap out of us :(

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.
