Rockstars, Babies and Happily Ever Afters
Rockstars, Babies and Happily Ever After... Rockstars, Babies and Happily Ever Afters - Cari Quinn,Taryn Elliott Is it Christmas again already? Because I feel like I've been given a beautifully wrapped gift, one that had all kinds of goodies in multiple boxes.

There were bonuses, alternate POVs, epilogues, and prologues for several of their series', including for most of the Oblivion-verse characters. I was also delighted to see a non-rocker thrown in for good measure.



They took me back into the past, a little bit of present-day, and even some teases of what's to come. Talk about timey-wimey!

Honestly, I don't want to give away a lot of the story stuff for those of you that haven't read the bonus material, because it's so great to discover it for the first time when you read it here - I'll just say how awesome it is to revisit these characters that I love so much.

Sometimes, I have a difficult time remembering characters from a series after being away for a while, but never with Cari and Taryn's guys and gals. They stick.

There's absolutely no hesitation, I give Rockstars, Babies and Happily Ever Afters five rockin' dad bod stars.

Not sure about this series – quite good but ...
Rockstars Volume 1: Nativity in Blacklig... Rockstars Volume 1: Nativity in Blacklight - Charlaine Harris

 

 

This comic collection by Joe Harris, like Snowfall, is wordy as he obviously likes experimenting with language which is no bad thing but it makes reading the comics a bit more hard work. As I get older, I'm not always up to the task.

 

The series revolves around a rock fan looking into strange goings-on associated with rock bands, partnered up with an investigative journalist. Murder and satanic rituals become part of the plot as the supernatural plays a major part in the plot.

 

The artwork is reasonably clear and I look forward to the next volume to see how it develops but it's all a bit “clever-clever”

The Secret Lives of Rockstars - Suzanne Lazear

Bitsy didn’t seem to fit in anywhere. She had been originally brought up by Drakkons. Then she went and lived with a druid she still called Mum. But now Bitsy was touring with a non-human punk band. The band has an elf, a half breed siren, and a succubus but nobody seems to know what Bitsy is.  Bitsy thinks of the band as her family Bitsy is determined to show she can make it on her own. The oddity about Bitsy was when someone asked her for help she felt she had to help them weather she wanted to or not. Then an Angel asks her to help get rid of Chaos Demons. Bitsy is only eighteen and doesn’t know how to get rid of the demons but she still feels she has to help. But she is also going to need help to do what the Angel has asked. Also the Angel acted like a butt to top it off.

I liked this story but it only got a three because too many things were unanswered and I felt it was mostly a cliffhanger and I hate cliffhangers as anyone who have read my reviews before. But the writing was good. I felt like I was right there with Bitsey . This was a quick read too quick as far as I am concerned. But that is me. I liked finding out with Bitsey what she was and what she could do. For the most part this kept my attention but the ending irritated me. But there are a lot of supernatural species such as elves, trolls, sirens, druids, demons, drakkons, angels, chaos demons, succubus, dragon shapeshifters and more and i really liked that. Anyone who likes urban fantasy should like this. There wasn’t really any romance and I missed that. So all and all not a bad story just didn’t like all the unresolved stuff.

Book Booty, July 2017

 

A dear friend and colleague left the company recently. To us, it meant that we’d be seeing less of her. We decided to surprise her with a trip to The Tent and bought her a bevy of books. She loved it! We all got just a bit teary eyed but that’s life, isn’t it! You meet awesome people, get to know them better, and then become sad when you part ways with them.

Anyway, since I took myself there, I had to sample some of The Tent’s goodies. But you already knew that. So, this is what I got:

The Buried Giant is a book that I have wanted to get for a while now. The delicious controversy surrounding it and the rumor that it is fantasy without being fantasy have only convinced me to get it.

I loved both The Secret Life of Bees book and the movie. Wanting to see if the author’s other books are as magical, I have purchased this one as well. Now, I have two of her books in my collection:

Since people keep pairing the two, I have wanted to read this one ever since I read The Road. Now I can! The book can be used in lieu of a door stopper but if I can survive WoT, I am sure I will live to tell the tale after having read this one!

Read and loved this one, so I wanted it for my collection. I like the cover on this edition even though I have yet to watch the movie!

I have heard mostly negative things about Memoirs of Geisha and how the author of that book has over-romanticized and out-slutted the role that geishas played in the Japanese society. From trusted sources come recommendations that present a more accurate picture. This author is one from that list and I couldn’t stop myself from getting this book.

To be honest, I don’t know why I bought this…yet. I might read it or I might give it to someone who will get more use out of it than I would. Haven’t decided!

This was a wonderful find. This book-cum-RPG thing is why I love going to The Tent. I have found all sorts of amazing things there. If you remember my illustrated Hobbit and LOTR editions, that is where I got them from.

The empty frame was filled with cards displaying characters from the book. Each card had the picture of a character at the front and some questions (that might help in brainstorming) at the back. Here are the cards:

A closer look:

Am I crazy or are they really pretty? Like the book on Rock history, I haven’t decided what I am going to do with these yet. Any ideas?

I Was a Famous Rock Star - Alexandra Ainsworth

DNF @ 50%

 

I don't know if it's fair to rate this book or not since I didn't finish it but I didn’t enjoy it at all so I am rating based on that.

 

So I started reading this book without reading any reviews or looking at any rating just based on the blurb and it was a ridiculous slightly boring book and the writing wasn't that much but I said I will stick with it and finish it and maybe it will get better but then I came across this line

 

My tool stiffens and expands, and pull closer to Mateo, aiming for just that bit more of friction....

and then I was like


 

MY TOOL the author is actually referring to his penis as HIS TOOL WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!!!!


So I made the right decision to stop reading this but then I thought I would look at the epilogue and I was like

 

 

Because it wasn't even an epilogue it was ridiculous and I am glad I DNF this book before I got an aneurysm.
