Pretty Face - Lucy Parker

       Arc Provided by Carina Press through Netgalley

 

                Release Date: February 20 th 

 

Another winner! Author Lucy Parker definitely knows how to write the perfect story, because I never thought that theatre "stuff" was that interesting, and then I just want to live in these stories. And be friends with these people. And as such, I am now going to re-read it, because I don't know when I'll read another good story. -_-

 

Lily is much more than a pretty face: she's smart, witty, and much more than meets the eye. Luc on the other hand, likes to live his life preferably free of taxing emotional dramas. He's forty _lol _ he's "old", and he already has enough on his hands with his latest project. He's known for his professional behaviour and he doesn't need someone with twenty six years old ( OMG! lol) mixing up things in his life. When these two meet, they definitely pay attention to each other... What happens next is a very well built story. I never felt like saying "oh, move on already..". I liked the "view" from the road, and meeting all the other characters? It was not a bore. When the time comes I'll be more than happy to read about them, because this author is most definitely on my auto buy list.

Yes, another retelling -_-
The Scarecrow King: A Romantic Retelling of the King Thrushbeard Fairy Tale - Jill Myles

Now this was a fast paced and addictive retelling of King Thrushbeard's tale... of which I was only vaguely familiar.

With a little time available in your hands, I bet you'll be hard pressed to finish reading this asap (if retellings are your cup of tea...)

As one can read in the author credits, Jill Myles wanted to tell this story in the true fairy tale(ish) manner.

As such this doesn't have convoluted plots. The characters are what you see. No big secrets are lurking around waiting to be unveiled: You pretty much know what is going to happen.

 

It felt as if I was reading a more traditional kind of fairy tale... but without all the gore that normally abounds in those.

 

The characters are interesting, although a little one dimensional.

The plot ends up being interesting because of the bickering between the two main characters.

In the end if this had been more developed _ especially the last bit _ this would definitely get a higher rating.
