Protecting Their Mate: Part One
Protecting Their Mate, Part One: A BBW Shifter Werewolf Romance (The Last Pack) - Mia Thorne

  The Last Pack, Book 1.1

I Picked Up This Book Because: Kindle freebie + I wanted something short to read at work

The Characters:

Ashley Todd:
Blake:
:

The Story:

Why the hell don’t I have the rest of this series lined up to read?????

Usually a #WorkRead is something I read while waiting for files to save or download or other such non active work. This one here through? I had to make myself flip the screen or barter with myself “if you post an invoice you can read a page”. Ashley and Blake burn up the page and I’m super intrigued about the dynamic of this pack. How is she going to choose? I cut books out of the budget for the rest of the year but obviously that needs to change.

Writing: Good
Forward Motion: Great
Overall Interest: Glued to the screen
Length of Reading Time: Went by too fast
Re-read-ability: Maybe but probably not

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:

     The will of the weak is his for the taking. Can love save their souls?
 
My Review
What a fantastic book and things that happened in this book really surprised me. I have to say I was as torn as the girls were on which guy's to chose. Stef had Tobias and Dominique to chose from. And Cali had Zion and Cade to chose from, to me Cali had the hardest choice in the end. Although all the men had their good points as well as bad ones. 
What freaking shit went down in this book was just cray cray!!! I think I should warn you that like a lot of books, not everyone is going to make it out alive. I like an author that's not afraid to go there, even if it makes me sad when that's the case. How the book ended was weird, but that's because there is going to be a spin-off series, sometime in 2019, that will explain it.
I really did enjoy this book and I am so glad I was able to go on this adventure, thanks to being picked to take part in the book tour for it. It was one heck of an adventure that was for sure.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian ★★★☆☆
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Sherman Alexie,Ellen Forney

I had heard so much about this book that I’ve really been looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t connect with it. I understand that it’s semi-autobiographical, so it must be an accurate portrayal of a 14-year-old boy’s thoughts and concerns. And teenage boys are a little bit gross. So maybe that’s why I was a bit put off by it – the MC’s relationships with and reactions to the female characters are definitely off-putting, no matter how realistic, and the humor, while perhaps accurate to the 14-year-old protagonist, is also juvenile. But the story itself is both funny and sad, that of a boy living on the “rez” and dealing with the fallout of asking to transfer to a town school where he will be the only non-white student. The book doesn’t pull punches in portraying alcoholism, violence, bullying, tribalism, and racism. It’s a lot to pack into a relatively short book. But the ending contains a redeeming message of hope, too, which helps to rescue a story that threatens to sink under the weight of these heavy themes.

 

Hardcover version. I read this book for The 16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 11: December 21st-22nd. Soyal (December 21st) is the winter solstice ceremony of the Zuni and the Hopi (Hopitu Shinumu), The Peaceful Ones, also known as the Hopi Indians. It is held on the shortest day of the year to ceremonially bring the sun back from its long winter slumber. Book themes for Soyal: Read a book set in the American Southwest / the Four Corners States (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah), –OR– a book that has a Native American protagonist. This book fits the square, as the main character is Native American.

Interim Errantry (Young Wizards #9.3, 9.5, 9.7)
Interim Errantry: Three Tales of the Young Wizards - Diane Duane

Three novellas? More like two short stories and a novel, because the third story is way too long to be a novella.

 

Not on My Patch and How Lovely Are Thy Branches are cute little holiday-centered shorts, the first for Halloween and the second for Christmas. Not a whole lot to say about them, but they were fun and it was nice to see the kids hanging out and being friends without their lives in mortal peril. 

 

Life Boats is entirely from Kit's POV, which is unusual and a nice change up from the shared POVs. Our friendly Earth wizards are off to help a planet evacuate before the planet's moon can fall apart and crash into it. So you know, no big deal. ;) Except that some of the planet's population don't seem able to or willing to leave, and no one can figure out why. This was not as terrifying a story as I thought it would be, given the world-ending premise, and it's wrapped up in a true YW way. There's a lot more hanging out, meeting and making new friends, and quite a bit of ... er, grown up talk as Kit and Nita are still figuring out their new relationship. I do like what this set of stories did for showing their friendship and how much their affections for each other have grown, and went some way to convincing me this is a good pairing and not just forced because of course the girl protag and the boy protag ALWAYS have to end up a couple. 

 

I don't think I've mentioned it much, if at all, in other reviews for this series, because I was so wrapped up in the emotional hangover, but these NME editions are not the best edited. There are a lot of simple mistakes in the text throughout the series, and while the last couple of books have been much better, this one almost seems to be making up for those. Extra words, missing words, misplaced words - if the writing wasn't so strong, I'd be more annoyed by this, but I felt I needed to mention it at last.
