I’m pretty sure there are very few people out there who haven’t heard of 50 Shades of Grey, it has rocked the nation with its provocative story line and erotic scenes. Other books from the erotic/romantic book genre have a lot to live up to (Okay not really because I personally don’t believe the 50 Shades of Grey books were really great “literature”, they were good for a “kick” but not much else). When TLC Book Tours offered the chance to read Hotelle and Elle, I figured I should give some other erotic/romantic books I shot (especially since 50 Shades has spoiled this genre for me), find out what I thought below!
About the book: “In Leaving Everything Most Loved by New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs investigates the murder of Indian immigrants in London.
The year is 1933. Maisie Dobbs is contacted by an Indian gentleman who has come to England in the hopes of finding out who killed his sister two months ago. Scotland Yard failed to make any arrest in the case, and there is reason to believe they failed to conduct a thorough investigation. The case becomes even more challenging when another Indian woman is murdered just hours before a scheduled interview. Meanwhile, unfinished business from a previous case becomes a distraction, as does a new development in Maisie’s personal life.
Bringing a crucial chapter in the life and times of Maisie Dobbs to a close, Leaving Everything Most Loved marks a pivotal moment in this outstanding mystery series.”
I have to admit, this book almost walked out of my house without me even reading it- my brother saw it lying on my coffee table and picked it up. He read the back, really wanted to read it, and almost left my house with it. I almost had to wrestle it out of his hands, but I got it back. I’ll probably give it to him to read now that I’m done with it, I mean, I’m all about sharing!
Welcome to Braggsville. The City that Love Built in the Heart of Georgia. Population 712.
You honestly cannot tell me that as soon as you read the title “The Monster That Ate My Socks” that you were not intrigued about this book. I mean doesn’t everyone wonder what happens with their socks when they go missing? I definitely wonder… a lot. I wanted to read this book as soon as I read the title… then I saw the cover and I knew I HAD to read it! Find out what I thought about it below!
I’ll be honest, I originally really wanted to read this book because of the gorgeous cover- white with blue birds, and the beautiful way the title Migratory Animals was written, simply gorgeous! Find out what I thought about the story and the characters!
I cannot believe that Bout of Books 12.0 is already over… where did the time go?! I definitely did not achieve what I had set out to achieve. I managed to read 1 whole book ( Lean in) and about 100 pages of Shadow and Bone. And that’s it. I didn’t do any challenges, didn’t update my reading, didn’t visit any other blogs… nothing. I’m not going to say it was a fail because I did read…. it just wasn’t what I had expected. Oh well, there is always next time :)
What better way to kick off a new year of reading than with a Read-a-thon? I am so excited to participate in the Bout of Books 12.0 Read-a-thon going on from Monday, January 5, 2015- Sunday, January 11, 2015. Continue reading
