Release Day ARC Review: The Best Worst Honeymoon Ever by Andrew Grey
The Best Worst Honeymoon Ever - Andrew Grey

I've never been to Bonaire, but after reading this book, I want to go. There are quite a few sections inside that read like an advertisement for the place, and I want to go. If you pop over to my blog, you'll see a couple of images of the reefs as well, taken by none other than the author.

Here's a link.

Tommy Gordon is getting ready for his wedding, straightening his tie just moments before the ceremony is supposed to start, when his groom-to-be tells him the wedding is off. Xavier (remember the name of the rancid jerkface) has cold feet/second thoughts, and it's goodbye, Tommy. 

Heartbroken, Tommy wants nothing more than to hide, but there's the honeymoon trip, already planned and paid for, and what shall he do with that, amirite? Who wants to go alone on what's supposed to have been the honeymoon?

Tommy's best friend Grayson, who made the suggestion that Tommy take the trip anyway, finds himself and his young son Petey invited to join Tommy in paradise for a bit of snorkeling, relaxation, and enjoying the scenery.

Grayson's had a crush on Tommy for a long while, but he hasn't been a position or brave enough to change the status quo and ask for more.

And off they are, because when you have money, last minute ticket changes are not a hindrance, and thus the romance begins.

Slowly, of course, because Tommy is still mourning what might have been, and kicking his own rear end because he's just so pathetic and worthless that not even a gold digger like Xavier would want him. 

Grayson is no gold digger, just a dude with a heart of gold, and while he has his son to think of, he is all on board with wooing Tommy, with Petey's encouragement. 

I really, really want to go to Bonaire. The descriptions in the book are vivid and enticing, and the author did a fine job transporting this reader into paradise with his words alone. 

Obviously, there's a bit of angst, what with Tommy's self-doubts and Grayson's fears of losing his friend, but they overcome all that. They overcome Xavier showing up at the resort uninvited (the nerve of that guy) and threatening Tommy (the NERVE of that guy), and Grayson making the unwilling acquaintance of a Man O' War (ouchie) and a bit of drama at the end just before all is well and they live happily ever after.

So yeah, this is fluffy fluff, with a wee bit of angst, and beautiful scenery, and would someone please invite me to go to Bonaire? 

It's the perfect beach vacation read, so get this book and enjoy it on a day in the sun.

Walking Dead Vol. 1 - Days Gone Bye
The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye - Tony Moore,Robert Kirkman

 

The Walking Dead will be the zombie movie that never ends.

- from the introduction by Robert Kirkman

 

I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead tv show. It's hard to put into words what this show means to me and how it has played with my emotions over the years. I can't believe I waited this long to read the graphic novel. 

 

I loved everything about this graphic novel and I can't wait to read Volume 2.

The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend series, book 1)
The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend series, book 1) - Erika Kelly Erika Kelly has a talent for presenting characters that are heavily flawed but likeable nonetheless. Fin and Calliope are like oil and water. At times they don't mix. The back and forth bickering, love, hate, lust relationship and social media all serve as a stepping stone on their road maturity. Mistakes are made, hearts are broken and lessons are learned. With a realism that is humorous, heartwarming and so very tempting.

This was over all a fun read, though at times felt a little slow.

In my opinion, it felt like it was missing a lot of details and actions. I could not get a clear picture of the surroundings or characters. However the descriptions of the bones and dinosaurs was handled really well.

I liked the main character. She was spunky, spoke up for herself and knew what she wanted to be and didn't let stuffy scientist guys stop her.

This is a fictional take on what if a little girl discovered some of the most known dinosaurs. The story was cute, there was segments that told the true facts of the dinosaurs she discovered, which I found really neat.

Any dino loving kid sound read this and hopefully it turns into a series of kids doing great things.

But, let's forget about age; anyone who enjoys middle grade may like this book. It is well written and if you like diary format, that is a plus. I also want to point out that I loved the artwork by Sarah Horne.

Worst of 2017

[Warning: all the links in this post, except the images, lead to reviews on my Blogger blog rather than my reviews on Booklikes. I was too lazy to re-do all the links.]

 

I tend to hand out lower star ratings much more freely than higher star ratings, so these lists are a bit longer than my "best" lists. I generally stuck with things that I gave 1- or 1.5-star ratings to while constructing these lists, but sometimes I bent those rules a little.

Worst Books (E-books, Paper):

 

Alliance In Blood - Ariel Tachna  Standoff - Lauren Dane  The Friday Society - Adrienne Kress  

You'll Be the Death of Me! - Stacia Wolf  The Moai Island Puzzle - Ho-Ling Wong,Alice Arisugawa  Otters In Space: The Search for Cat Havana - Doc Marcus,Mary E Lowd  

Salamandastron - Brian Jacques,Gary Chalk  Decision at Doona - Anne McCaffrey  The Edge of the Abyss - Emily Skrutskie  

The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku - Yunagi,cosMo@BousouP,Muya Agami  Parasite Eve - Hideaki Sena  Death Note: Another Note - NisiOisiN  

 

 

Worst Shorter Works (Novellas and Short Stories):

 

Tales from Outer Lands (The Mangoverse) - Shira Glassman  The Ginza Ghost: and other stories - Ho-Ling Wong,Keikichi Ōsaka  

 

  • "The Monster of the Lighthouse" by Keikichi Osaka (mystery) - This was in a collection called The Ginza Ghost, which I reviewed as a whole.
  • "Aviva and the Aliens" by Shira Glassman (fantasy, comedy) - This was in a collection called Tales from Outer Lands. This particular story was way too goofy for my tastes, although the other one in the collection was decent.

 

Worst Graphic Novels (Manga, etc.):

Again, I'm being lazy and listing entire series when it's possibly just a single volume that I rated low enough for it to count as "worst." [And again, for the Booklikes version of this post I selected some individual bad volumes from each series. Enjoy!]

 

Alice in the Country of Hearts: My Fanatic Rabbit, Vol. 2 -  Arisa, Vol. 12 - Natsumi Ando  Alice in the Country of Hearts: The Mad Hatter's Late Night Tea Party, Vol. 01 - QuinRose,Riko Sakura  

not simple - Natsume Ono  No Longer Human, Part 1 - Osamu Dazai  

 

 

Worst Audiobooks:

None that I can recall, or I never finished them.

Worst Movies:

 

  • Justice, My Foot! (live action comedy) - I gave this two stars. It had some redeeming qualities, but it wasn't anywhere near what I'd call great.
  • K: Missing Kings (anime fantasy) - Another 2-star movie. Pretty enough, but lacking in substance and a complete story.

 

Worst TV Series:

None that I can recall, or I never finished them.
