The Perfect Play By Jaci Burton $1,99
The Perfect Play - Jaci Burton

The last thing event planner Tara Lincoln needs is the jet-set lifestyle of a football pro like Mick Riley; even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand proved that Mick is an all-star-both on the field and in the bedroom.

Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn't intend to put herself out there again, especially with a certified heartbreaker. But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind to catch this sultry vixen.

Long overdue + Anniversary
The Phantom Tollbooth - Jules Feiffer,Norton Juster

"...the most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what's in between..."

 

There were several lines from The Phantom Tollbooth that I could have chosen to start this blog post but this one really stuck with me. It might come as a surprise for you to learn that this was the first time I had read Norton Juster's classic work for children. It has been on my TRL for years and I finally knuckled down and checked out a copy. I'm glad that I did because it was just what I needed. For those who haven't been initiated, The Phantom Tollbooth is the story of a little boy named Milo who seems to make his way through the world with a listless, bored attitude...until a mysterious package appears in his bedroom. What happens next is a pun lovers' dream. (If you're a fan of grammar and word play then this is the book for you.) Milo goes on an adventure which will totally change the way he looks at the world. This is the perfect book to create lifelong learners because it's all about critical thinking. (I realize that I'm making this sound like homework but I swear it's fun educational learning.)

 

A/N: Today marks 6 years that I've been posting my book reviews online. I can't believe that something that started as a fun little side project has turned into my second job (albeit unpaid). I feel very proud of how far I've come and I am very much looking forward to the future (and all of those books!). Thanks to those who have been around from the beginning and those just now discovering me (hello!). I hope that in some small way I've helped you to find your next great read and somewhat brightened your day.  Here's to the next 6 years! :-D

Game Play Update: 7/6/17

 

Bank: $141.00

 

Roll 28

 

I am still reading Empire Grill, although I finished The Invisible Library, which is 328 pages and is therefore worth $6.00! I will be rolling from Main Street #10.

 

I rolled an 8:

 

 

Which puts me on Carsland 18: Read a book that was published in 2006, 2011, 2013 & 2014 or which has a car on the cover.

 

Since I enjoyed The Eyre Affair so much, and since the next Thursday Next book also has a car on the cover:

 

 

I'm about 90% sure that will be my choice!

Reading progress update: I've read 1 out of 483 pages.
Empire Falls - Richard Russo

I decided to read this one for the 4th of July extra space! It fits Main Street #10, which means that I'll be rolling off that one on July 5th. I hope this is good - I haven't read Richard Russo before, so I have no preconceived thoughts about his writing.

 

This book is set in the titular Empire Falls, a small town in Dexter County, Maine. From looking at GR, I can see that Char really liked it, so that is a strong endorsement!

The Perfect Play - Jaci Burton

I've only read chapter 1! Not sure the tone of this book is going to be for me.

 

She sure was beautiful, but not in the way he was used to. She wasn’t overly made up, so her beauty was natural.

 

She’d been polite but hadn’t fallen all over him when he’d introduced himself. And oh man, had he liked that. A lot. Surprisingly, a lot. Especially when she’d walked away from him. Women tended to latch onto him like he was the Holy Grail, and once they did, they never let go. That, he didn’t like. But Tara actually seemed more interested in doing her job than in being with
him. It was damned refreshing.

 

She was slender, but not too much. She looked like she actually ate three meals a day, unlike a lot of the women he’d been forced to spend time with.

He’d bet she usually wore her hair down or in a ponytail or in one of those messy hair clip things. She didn’t seem the type of woman who messed with her hair so that it had to be perfect.

 

There was something about her that made him want to do more than just fuck her.

 

Spare me the "not like the others" woman sentiment.
