No More Booklikes, BYE

I can't delete, I get hundreds of spam a day. I am out of here- running

The Jingle Is Now Stuck In my Head LOL

I know grumpy cat done and done but this really made me laugh. Maybe because my neighbors don't believe in boundaries ?

Has Anyone Heard From The BL Controllers Lately ?

I got over 500 spam followers in the last two days as did many others. Has the administrators for this site said anything to anybody about this ? Are they even still around ? It feels like they just leave the site to the bots. I am so angry/frustrated, tired of this lack of support. What can't we just get a "request to follow/friend" option.

When I get done blocked this new set I'll have over 4, 000 blocked spammers 4,000 ! This is BS

Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo

The female MC is acting stupid, lowering down in her role for a man ? Seriously is this the 50's?  Honey if he can't stand your glory and feels inferior dump him. I really hate this it's old crap that should not be brought into these times

A Dark Orphan Story

Shadow and Bone - Leigh Bardugo

Oh this started out so sweet, two orphans growing up together, taking care of each other. Then when one saves the other their whole world goes KABOOM. She is taken away where she is asked to trust many but one will be the betrayer. Their lives changed, challenged and altered forever.

Light spoilers below beware !

Oh I hate Dark-arse, hate hate hate. I can't say more without spoiling it but what he does is so GRRRRRRRRRRRR ! and he does it on so many levels. The author made me love him only to stab me in the heart. LOL

Slithering Ending

The Queen of Nothing - Holly Black

Well that was wild, I'm all anxious inside. Queens, Kings, backstabbing, front stabbing, side stabbing, off with their heads, fae battles, magical weapons, sneaking, snaking and some unimpressive bedding. Great ending to this series, left with a slightly open window so that it could carry on.

Talk About Mirroring Real Life

Past This Point - Nicole Mabry

I stayed up till 3am reading this, I had to know what happened to the characters. This book shadows the current events in the world  with the coronavirus worldwide outbreak. It was so creepy, I had goosebumps on more than one occasion with newscaster saying almost the same words, the government saying the same things, the reality of the characters actions we spot on. While reading this I kept hoping this wasn't a premonition, it's that realistic. I was riveted by her story, scared, and horrified, in the ned I was glad to have known her.

Karis is a woman living in New York with her dog living a semi hermit lifestyle when a virus breaks out and people start to die. The advice is to quarantine yourself, cover your mouth when you sneeze, wash your hands, but death still comes. Alone as the the world come apart around her she creates a world inside her apartment, she befriends a couple kids across in another building, she reads, works out, talks to her parents in CA and her dog.  She starts surviving and doing the hardest of things to live another day and hope for a way to make it home to her family in CA. Things are really bad, but not as bad as they will get.

Past This Point - Nicole Mabry

What I'm loving most about this is that it is very realistic, no overly hero moves, no extreme weapons, or skills just real people doing the best they kind and thinking

Back At The Inn

Sweep with Me  -  Ilona Andrews

Dina and Sean rule the roost. There are some complicated guests arriving at the Inn each with major issues. meanwhile the inner Inn drama is hilarious with a temperamental chef insulted beyond his control.
As always the Andrews rocked it with this novella

Romance is not Everything

A Curse So Dark and Lonely - Brigid Kemmerer

An new twist on a classic that was a lot of fun to read.
Beauty and the Beast has been told every which way right ? No, this author found a new way to twist modern times with another time and characters from both world into not a romantic tale. yes, not a romantic tale. I know "Oh but Yodamom Beauty and the Beast is Romance" This one is an action packed adventure filled with magic, bad guys, debts and all the complications of life. The romance is expected which is why when it isn't front and center the story takes a new direction. There is a life beyond just falling in love. Yes, it's true ! Then when the elephant in the room is highlighted, you know to break the curse the girl is not swooning and giggling. Ha ! It's fantastic !
Great read, horrible cliffhanger. I had to order book 2 only minutes after finishing this
