Flowers from the StormFlowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

this was the first time that my beloved romance podcast let me down

this book was such a let down wow

I was told this was the angstiest Historical Romance……………………………………………………………………………………………………..it wasn’t.

1.5 stars

this book is bad guys so bad
not disrespect for those who love it but wow I can’t believe I put myself through that.
I’m fully aware that this a classic but its the literary equivalent of someone trying to make a salad burger quesadilla….they just all dont mesh
nothing goes together.

I found the heroine to be understandably naive but then at a certain point it got so monotonous her views so unfavorable that I grew to extremely dislike her.
and the Duke…ugh I just didn’t care for him I didn’t sympathize with either of them and its sad because the Duke went through so much but its almost like the author tries so hard SO HARD to put everything bad in the way everything sad that the result is something ..just unpalatable.

I think this is my retirement from old school romances…I hated Whitney, my love and Kingdom of Dreams and not this…yea by..I’ll stick with Tessa Dare, Elizabeth Hoyt and Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

(-) 5 stars
I dont really want to be honest about how I feel about this…’thing’ because I don’t want people to get angry but to me
-> this isn’t a book, its a novella…albeit a very badly done novella
-> this didn’t advance either of the series its a part of..at all
-> there was literally no…NO plot
-> I hate Mirceo
-> I don’t think you need to suffer through this in order to read the next in the series
-> This wasn’t sexy
-> I’m so incredibly disappointed in this..its obvious that KC didn’t care about this thing or want to write it and it so shows this isn’t what she writes and just the fact that we have to wait a year for more of her paranormal books..and get this steaming pile of shit is inexcusable to me

I’ve alwasy been such a fan of this author her book was one of the very first romances I’ve EVER read and I couldn’t stomach the last book in her Professionals series..didn’t even finish it…and now this….makes me thing that Wicked Abyss is going to be horrible

fuck this

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

orgininal rating 3 stars

*****ReRead April 2017*****
2.25 stars………………………

ugh oh my lord….I really didn’t like this book….was it me? I wonder. I kept trying to rationalize my feelings : ‘Maybe its because I’ve reread 6 of these in a row’ ‘Maybe its because I just read Phury’s book and I loved that one.’ ….yea that was denial Im () this close to hating this book..and here are my thoughts

what I liked
* I loved Ehlena! she was so strong and hardworking, relatable even she was just a blue collar vampire and its important that we got to see that side of vampire canon in the BDB series.
-> her first scene with Rehv I loved! and every scene in the beginning at least…with them I was all about.
* LOVED the Wrath POV ..like 100X percent. And I loved the problems he was having with Beth in this one. Their marital problems are so human and realistic, they added another dimension to their character their relationship and the story as a whole. Relationships are the same no matter your species.
* loved how Rehv yearned for Ehlena..he was such a torturned character so loyal and long suffering it broke my heart.
*Every single time. Saxton was in the picture..which was I think twice.

What I didn’t like
* sympaths…just the whole idea of them I didn’t understand why JR created them..we dont even hear about them again later in the series..they’re fucking disgusting I hate them so much
*the fucking princess…I hated her with everything in me
*the long extensive scenes of Rehv fucking the princess..who also is his fucking half sister! I know they’re sympaths but what the fuck that was NOT OK and super even more not ok when you count the fact they they had more sex scenes together than Rehv and Ehlena..and why did you include the scenes anyway! fucking incest is disgusting
*Xhex I skipped almost all of her POV scenes I can safely say I hate her now I dont even care that she got kidnapped by Lash she sucks shes a bad character. the way she treated JM is inexcusable to me… I dare someone try and defend her.

I’m sure theres more that I detested but I just want to wipe this book off of my memory…maybe take a break from my reread because honestly I’m not that jazzed about reading lover mine…I now remember the first time I read these books and I skimmed alot …which I did again now totally skimmed the ending totally skimmed the the incest scenes after the first one skipped Lash And now I’m in a book funk and nothing pleases me so thanks fucking Rehvenge and Ehlena you fucking suck

Consequences (Consequences, #1) by Aleatha Romig

Consequences (Consequences, #1)Consequences by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2 1/2 “Fuck you Tony” stars

spoilers ahead. I repeat spoilers ahead.

Before I say anything I want to say that I love books.
I love reading them..buying them..touching them..collecting them,sharing them and talking about them.
I respect the shit out of books. They’re the only constant in my life. It takes a lot for me to not like a book.
I HATE writing bad reviews. I really do.

I did not enjoy reading this book…up until 88% I hated it with everything inside of me.

fore TWO years I have tried to finish this book…I’ve picked it up got bored and put it back down (the first time I picked this up..I got bored at around 77% let me tell you why)
1. The dialogue: it did not flow. at all…Claire and Tony talked like Robots they barely had any emotions..everything felt so artificial.. The execution of the story made me angry…I don’t want to be told how the characters felt..or be told what they say..do I make sense..Read it you’ll know what I’m talking about.
2. The superfluous descriptions. EVERYTHING was described in wayyy too much detail iin this book…and jeez was the result boring….everything…whenever she went outside there were at least 2 paragraphs about the damn weather….the cloths fucking everything..god it drove me insane

If I had to pick one word to describe this book and my reaction to it would be IMPERVIOUS
The whole time..you’re thinking…why did he do this…
why didn’t she tell the doctor
she had an out and she didn’t take it

and then you find out why he did it…sigh….Its a bit much…this women has NOTHING to do with what was done to your grandfather over 20 years ago…

shit he took everything away from her..she has nothing to do with what her grandfather did shit thats too much its excessive

but you know what…I want Claire to get her revenge I want her to bring that fucker down. when she decided that she was going to take her time and form a plan I was so fucking excited. that alone gave the book 1 more star.

I want Tony to suffer. I hate him.

But at the same time I dont want to have another experience like this one..this books sucked and I say in the most sincere way possible…I dont understand why people give this 5 stars..the writing is deplorable ..

.So if I didn’t like the book why did I read it? I didn’t want to leave it unfinished..I knew I didn’t like it but now I have PROOF that I didn’t like it..I read everything in this book and the only thing I liked even a bit was the last 11.

This whole book was spoiled for me..a friend of mine who read it told me that he framed her and she goes to jail…..
and from careless updates on GR I found out she has a baby with him and that she goes to a loony bin..so do I read the next book…is it as bad as this one..cuz this was bad.

So to anyone who likes this series…I have some questions?
who is the girl from the aftermath chapter…sarah burke…if its a spoiler dont tell me

I WON I DIDN”T LET THIS BOOK DEFEAT ME I FINISHED IT
