Today I finally got my Kindle Touch in. The release date for the UK was moved backward one week otherwise it would only have come out tomorrow but instead it came out last Friday. I had been keeping my eye on it for quite a while. I love my K3 and will definitely be using it quite a lot still in the future (see below why) but it is so cute and fast that I really like the K touch.

I recently found a new writer through the #amwriting hashtag on twitter and was lucky that she was releasing a new book only days after. I got my hands on a copy and LOVED it!
Divorced, heartbroken and living in a lonely New York apartment with a tiny kitchen, Rachel Goldman realizes she doesn’t even know how to cook the simplest meal for herself. Can learning to fry an egg help her understand where her life went wrong? She dives into the culinary basics. Then she launches a blog to vent her misery about love, life and her goal of an unburnt casserole.To her amazement, the blog’s a hit. She becomes a minor celebrity. Next, a sexy Spaniard enters her life. Will her souffles stop falling? Will she finally forget about the husband she still loves? And how can she explain to her readers that she still hasn’t learned how to cook up a happy life from scratch?
As I mentioned in a previous post this book is not as fast paced as some of this other work but it makes up for this by being very strong in language.
Palin leads a well-ordered life, needing peace and quiet after spending his days working as an information broker, reading minds for money. Which is why Tigre seems like such a strange choice for him as a lover.
When Palin sees vala Tigre in one of his mindreading forays, he knows he has to have him, despite the fact that the man has been created for two purposes; fighting and pleasure. Together they build a new life, one of pleasure and pain, of love and discipline. When life threatens to tear them apart, they fight to keep the home they’ve created, even if the obstacles they must overcome are within as much as without.
I’ve not finished one but three books the past couple of days. Two by Sean Michael and one by Melissa Ford. I sat down and decided that I wanted to finish all my books that were over 50% read already, there were 5 to start with and only 2 left now.
Anton has lost almost everything he holds dear: his apartment, his life in the city, and his long-time friend and butler, Jackson, who has been kidnapped by a rival pack. The one thing he still has is his lover and mate, Greg, who is learning to be a werewolf, even as they try to put their lives back to rights.
Determined to get Jackson back, Anton finally approaches the werewolf pack that’s his to lead by right, but that he’s largely ignored. They agree to help him, but Anton has to embrace his inner wolf to work with them, and to help Greg come to terms with what he is.
Meanwhile, butler Jackson is trapped – hurting and beaten – praying for rescue that looks wholly unlikely, even as his time is running out, while Greg is convinced he’s going crazy, fearing he’s hearing voices that won’t go away.
As pack Alpha, it all falls to Anton to keep his people safe, but there are forces at work that even the strongest werewolf might not be able to overcome. Can Anton keep his friends safe and save his beloved mate from the voices that call to him? Find out in this sequel to Sean Michael’s best-seller, Bite.
They suffer for his art… When a number of women are reported missing in Glasgow, the spectre of a previous spate of unsolved disappearances in the city rears its head. Journalist Ray Bissett is drawn into the case when his daughter joins the ranks of the missing. And ambitious police detective Tom Kendrick won’t let Ray forget a terrible incident from his past.
As the second book to post here I’ll write a bit about the book Pretty Little Liars where the tvseries of the same name is based on. I have been watching the series for a while now, my own guilty little pleasure, and I couldn’t wait to see what was going on in the series. So I decided to start reading the books.
The series are pretty well done, very strong, but the books are better. Nothing unusual about that, though some events happen differently in the series than in the books, there was a bit of getting used to the change of events, but nothing major.
This is what Amazon says about the book:
In the exclusive Philadelphia suburb of Rosewood, Alison is the Queen Bee of her elite seventh grade hive. BFs Aria, Hanna, Spencer, and Emily vie for her attention, even as each of them hides a hideous secret only Alison knows. So when Alison goes missing after a slumber party, never to be seen again, each girl is heartbroken, but also a little relieved. Now it is three years later, and though the four girls have grown apart, they are each still hiding something. Artsy Aria is carrying on an affair with one of her teachers, fashionista Hanna shoplifts to accessorize her trendy outfits, blue-blood Spencer is sleeping with her older sister’s boyfriend, while straight-A Emily is trying to ignore her attraction to a new female classmate. When the girls begin receiving threatening text messages and emails that from someone known only as “A,” they must confront the fact that against all odds, it appears Alison is back. Could Alison still be alive? And if so, why is she so determined to uncover all their dirty little secrets?
After watching the series for a bit I sort of knew what to expect of the series, or so I thought. The book was catchy, not by subject but by writing style. The style is very engaging and keeps pulling you along, I had a very hard time putting the book down.
The girls are lovable, all of them blessed with a type of girl-teen angst. It is all about being the best, competing with others, falling in and out of love and so much more.
But for these girls there is a bigger secret out there, bigger than who they are dating, how they transformed or what they do behind their sisters back… There is “The Jenna Thing” for example. And the only one who knows all has disappeared, the queen bee, Alison.
Three years after her disappearance the girls get messages from a mysterious A who seems to know all their secrets. Not only that but they always seem to arrive at the moment that their present life and their past secret seem to overlap somehow. This creeps the girls out but they keep it to themselves, afraid that talking to the other girls might seem crazy.
This is until they find Alison back, suddenly the other girls seem the only sane option to talk to.
After reading the first book I had to start on the second book. The tension seems to pull me along really nice and the second book seems promising as it starts out with another flashback of Alison and I really love those moments.
You can find the books on Amazon(UK) and Amazon(US).
