Sadly I haven't had much luck in this department this year but I remember the euphoria of first discovering the Kate Daniels series.

God damn awful!

Royal Obsession - Cyndi Friberg

****Angry rant ahead because this book is just garbage. You have been warned.****

 

I fucking hate this book, it is one of the most disgusting books I have read along The Golden Dynasty in terms of rape culture and misogynist males that think raping their women is best in the world.

 

The hero belongs to a secret society of killers that where once a thriving race that was massacre by the female protagonist peoples. They live underground and when they need women they steal them from above, rape them until the woman gets pregnant and then take away the child if its male and cast her out, if the child is female they just drop them off somewhere and go off to find another woman to rape.

 

Seriously?

 

Yes. I'm fucking serious!

 

I could barely believe it.

 

In fact, if the girl they kidnapped is virgin they tied her up and gang rape her for shits and giggles.

 

No joke the hero threatens the female protagonist with this until she tells him she is not virgin. Lo and behold she only gets to be rape by the hero exclusively then. How romantic, how fucking amazing.

 

FUCK THIS BOOK, FUCK THIS HERO, JUST FUCK IT ALL!!!!!!!!!

Took a sharp dive into the deep sea and never recover....

Mr. Perfect - Linda Howard

This book started out fine but at about 50% it took a sharp turn and rolled downhill really fast and never stopped until it reached rock bottom. It was fun at the beginning but it got scary and depressive at the end. It also dabble to much into the myth of "Men are from Mars, Women from Venus" and I gotta confessed that I just don't subscribe to a theory that separates the sexes so completely.

 

I felt like Howard wanted to make a feminist statement however it came out as rather angry instead of profound and that rubbed me the wrong way. Don't even get me started with the psychological profile of a killer who hates women that further implied a man vs. women theme in the book. I wish Howard would have attacked the real culprit and that is the "mind set" that oppresses women.

Terrible

The Intern: Vol. 1 - Brooke Cumberland

How the hell did I get suckered into paying for this book?

 

Oh, yeah, the cover, the only good thing this book has going for it is the cover. Everything else is just stupid, I can't believe adults would get fooled by an idiot teenage girl with a forge resume and student number of someone else and it held up TO A SERIOUS INVESTIGATIVE COMPANY'S BACKGROUND CHECK?

 

WHAT. THE. FUCK?

 

This girl would have to pay thousands to get top of the line forge papers, that shit ain't cheap but she makes it sound like is "easy." I can't with this book, it insult my intelligence.

 

 

I dunno anymore

King's: Book 1, The KING Trilogy (Volume 1) - Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

I kind of like it and this is really weird because it is basically the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning re-written. The sibling going missing, the strange new world the protagonist is plunge into, the mysterious dude who wants her to use her new found "gift" to sense the "artifact." It is way to damn similar but King wasn't as nasty as Barrons and I liked Mia a heck of a lot more than I liked Mackayla so I dunno. I might pick up the next one but don't hold your breath.

King's: Book 1, The KING Trilogy (Volume 1) - Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

I dunno how to feel about this book, I kind of like it but at the same time I am concious that it is a knock off of The Fever series and we all know how I hated it that one.

 

 

Dear John Green, STOP perpetuating the myth that films with female leads are risky!

Dear John,

 

It's not courageous at all. Women in leading roles are a sure thing, we have been for a while. But thanks for perpetrating the sexist myth that films with female leads are a risky venture that require courage in order to complement yourself, and the producers of your film, at the expense of all these other female driven films.

 

This is like telling a woman "you're so courageous for leaving the house dressed like that." It's not a compliment.

 

We don't need a "nice guy" to write a story about us, and then pretend like he is championing our cause while completely ignoring and even tries to erase that we've already been doing this for ourselves long before you ever came along. 

 

As for an indie film adaptation of a YA teen romance...image

 

Unlike TFIOS, Twilight (1st film) did NOT have known actors (like Laura Dern, Sam Trammel and Willem Dafoe). While Shailene Woodley already has an Golden Globe nomination and the successful Divergent franchise under her belt, by comparison Kristen Stewart was a virtual unknown when she took the starring role in the first Twilight film.

 

PS When Stephenie Meyer published Twilight she didn't have over 2 million YoutTube subscribers to drive the success of her novel and film adaptation.

Mr. Perfect - Linda Howard

A terribly promising start, please hold up book. I need a good book!

Because this should be talked about to death until it becomes the status quo.

Obligatory 90's song after having read After the Night by Linda Howard, said book was published in 1995.

A shocker!

After the Night - Linda Howard

I really enjoyed this book.

I know shocker! I thought I would hate it, I really did but it was good.

 

I am so happy that I actually like it I feel like this merits a celebration. Howard did some good writing in this one and I really like Faith, she was a strong woman with vulnerabilities that made her sweet and approachable. Gray started out as this rich entitled asshole but I understood his anger when things went wrong, I doubt I would have reacted any better in this situation he was placed in. 

His sister, Monica, however has no excuse, she is one of the most self centred characters I have read in a long, long time. Everything was about her and what she was feelings, I was kind of upset that at the end she was going to marry the town's sherrifs. She was going to make that poor man miserable.

I kind of had to forgive a the book a few things and I blame it all for having been written in mid nineties. Faith has this little brother whom she cares for and he has exceptionalities and he is often referred to as "retarded" and I was really offended when I read it. I wish Howard had left it out instead of introducing something so delicate as an exceptional kid and then killed him in the storyline. 

 

I was also kind of creep out when Grayson confesses to Faith in bed that he wanted her when she was fourteen. Yes, you read that right, they where having sex and Faith confessed to having been infatuated with him as a child and he confesses that he found her attractive when she was fourteen. It was a creeptastic moment for sure and even if Gray never touched her or made any advances on Faith when she was a young girl it made me uncomfortable.

I decided to forgive the book this things based on the time it had been written. I would like to think that the author honestly didn't know any better when she wrote it like that but the rest of the book was fine. I even found the sex scene well written, the ending was a bit cheesy but that was fine too.

Jetpacks!
Jetpacks!

Always remember that the real problem is that they're jealous of all the fun you're having.

Mine to Take - Cynthia Eden

It's been a long time since I have actually breeze right through a book without skipping pages. I like this book just okay, it wasn't out of this world amazing but it didn't annoyed me either. I felt like there where some threads that were left hanging at the end like, what did Trace do in the army, how did Trace and Skye initially started out but it was mostly okay. Trace was possessive but not to a scary degree, Skye was kind of bland but since I didn't find anything terribly problematic I kind of block it out. I think it help that this book was free. If I had to pay for it I would probably be bitching.

I want to punch everyone

Unveiled - Courtney Milan

I get really tire of writing 1 star reviews, there is only so many ways one can say "This book sucked donkey balls!" but I don't like to not write down my feelings on why I disliked a book or else I would forget about it.

Ash is an asshole of the first order, the moment he sees Margaret he wants her and constantly harasses her and tries to seduce her all the while saying how he would never take advantage of her. I don't understand the reasoning in this logic, she is his servant, she is a woman in Victorian England where even the wisp of rumours could ruin a girl and here he is trying to seduce her in to bed? 

How is that not taking advantage of her?

 

Ash also goes on and on about forging ones own future and shit but it feels like a huge fabricated lie design to get the heroine to "give it up" without her feeling fear of getting pregnant or used by a man in a much higher position than her. Also, his stupidity of forging ones own future is all fine and great when he is afforded the privileged of having a penis but for Margaret, who is a woman, she has very little agency and ways to forge her own future in a strictly patriarchal society. 

I DNFed at around 45% because I couldn't stand Ash's advances that where clearly refuted by Margaret. His persistence was unnerving and it enrage me at how little respect he had for Margaret saying no. I am very, very sensitive to consent issues and this book was full of harassment to my eyes.
