Hey, remember when I said I couldn’t read anything because I was writing so furiously, so I was watching TV and movies?* This pathetic list proves I was not lying. I MISS YOU, BOOKS. No giveaway this month because I really cannot recommend any of these books that much.
84. Call Me Irresistable by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Someone told me Phillips was like Jennifer Crusie. This was fine, but not Crusie-esque.
85. Sometimes It Lasts by Abbi Glines
This book convinced me I cannot read Glines any more. I do not like saying negative things about authors or their books, because, hey! Personal! Ouch! But criticism is necessary sometimes, and I can say that while I think Glines is very good at attraction and seduction and all of that, her female characters need more depth and her male characters need less….I don’t know, fewer erections? That would be a start, but I suppose that’s THE POINT. Thusly, done with this romance writer. I did really like her Vincent Boys series, though. Ah well.
86. Beautiful Bombshell by Christina Lauren
Exactly what you would expect from Christina Lauren. If you like them, you’ll like this. If you do not, you won’t. Et cetera.
87. Glitter Baby by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Basically, I was looking for good solid not super smutty romance novels that were available on the kindle through the library and with strong female leads, and this is basically like asking for a pumpkin to turn into a carriage. Which is to say that this has a strong female lead and a romance and you still shouldn’t read this book.
88. What I Did For Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
What I said in 87, but with the caveat that this book was good after the first half or so. A very broody romantic male lead that developed nicely, but geez did it take time.
I’m a few weeks from being completely finished with LOST AND FOUND and then I’M COMING FOR YOU, BOOKS.
*I have watched more Sherlock, though, and that is EXCELLENT, and also some New Girl. I like Zooey now. I am only human.
I also watched the first season of Hart of Dixie, with heavy skimming because all I really care about in the episodes are two characters: the teenage girl Rose (wonderful actress) and Wade. WADE. Goodness, what a nice gentleman.
