They can't all be home runs -
How to Marry a Marquis - Julia Quinn

There was nothing wrong with this book or the writing. I adore JQ, but the female leads in both of the books for this series were annoying and definitely not the type of women I want to read about. The MC in book one pissed me off so much I couldn't even write my review. This one is not much better. I've said it before, I'm not a fan of three stooges humor - and this chic is possibly a descendent of Curly... Or Mo... Or Shep. Whatever. The clumsy ridiculousness of this girl is so frustrating that I'm flouncing. I just don't need the aggravating headache on my day off.

Not exactly what I was expecting
His at Night - Sherry Thomas

This book was a little different than the normal ol' historical romance. I say that because of the bedroom scenes. I actually like that nothing worked for her -exactly. That she didn't turn in to a simpering love sick sex addict after being penetrated. ya know? It had a realistic side to it in that aspect. They weren't even truly happy together until the end of the book. Meh, I don't know. I guess it was just refreshing not to have the, "Best sex ever totally for sure I'm a sex goddess now and will rule the bed forever" thing happen.

It's a little bit funny
A Rogue by Any Other Name - Sarah MacLean

Not the book, but the way my brain works. See, I go in prepared. I read all of my friends' reviews on the book. Then I read the public reviews, but I skip all of the 5's because people who are not my friends usually don't know what a real 5 star rating on GR means. (Yeah, I said it. Usually. Not always) I skim the 1 stars, I focus on the 2s. The twos seem honest. So, I read them and I go in prepared.

 

Then I find that what I thought I would not like, didn't affect me the same way it did a lot of other people. 

 

I did not agree with the way our "hero" treated Pen. I thought Penelope was a little bit of a rug in spots and totally should have just punched him. Once. One good black eye... but otherwise, I enjoyed the book.
