Finicky Friday

I was going to title today’s blog post “Finally Friday,” but since I’ve had my surgery, everyday could be Friday for me. Don’t worry, it isn’t as good as it sounds. I’m very limited on what I’m allowed to do. While not being allowed to do housework is a good thing, some of the other restrictions aren’t so good.

The one thing I’ve been doing a good bit of lately (if you’re a friend or follower on Goodreads, you’ve noticed this) is reading. My last read, The Mystic Wolves, was one I nearly gave up on finishing.

It made me wonder…I don’t like adding a book to my DNF shelf, but how long do you keep reading before you give up? Is there a standard? Does a particular scene turn you off? I’m interested in your comments. What is your gauge?

For me The Mystic Wolves was very s-l-o-w. The entire first chapter (or maybe even two) was about wolves playing football. That was it. To me it seemed like a strange place to start a story. I kept wondering if some big, bad demon was going to crash the game. Nope, no game crashing. Just lots and lots of sickeningly sweet lovey-dovey talk and thoughts between Darcy and Mason. Gah. Enough! Even for a romance. Enough! Continue reading “Finicky Friday”

Fun Review

A big “thanks!” goes out to Gigi for her 4 star review of Mountain Memories, which she posted on Goodreads.

Check this out:

Packed with breakups, friends-with-benefits, broken hearts times two, mountain lion attacks, crazy-bearded-gun-welding-mountain-men, gunshot wounds, death bed declarations of love, snow storms that stop civilization and require a need to hole up in a secluded cabin for days, this book pretty much had it all. And it kinda fucking rocked. I can definitely recommend it. Fun ride. Enjoy!

This review brought a smile to my face! I’ve had a rough couple of days, all stressed about my surgery on Wednesday. I was trying to decide on a topic for this post, and after I read the review, I knew that I wanted to share it.
