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”

The Georgia Corbins is a YA contemporary romance novel written by Kara Leigh Miller.
Publishing info: Entranced Publishing; Released June 10; 265 pages
Ali Philips never thought anything could be more devastating than the day Levi and Tucker Corbin, her two best friends—her only friends—moved away. Three years passed without a single phone call, text message, or email from them and she’s resolved to the fact that she will probably never see them again. Until one morning when she comes face-to-face with Levi Corbin in physics class.
Little does she know, the Corbins have returned to Haldeen with only one thing on their minds: winning Ali’s heart. Ali soon finds herself in the middle of a love triangle she doesn’t want any part of. As she tries to reclaim the friendships she’s lost and to adjust to the unfamiliar feelings she’s having, she struggles with making the one decision that will forever change their lives: Levi or Tucker Corbin?
She’s always had a special bond with Tucker and feels most comfortable when she’s with him. But Levi brings her to life in a way she didn’t think was possible and makes her feel things she didn’t think she would ever feel. Torn between the two, Ali is certain of only one thing–by the time it’s over, she’ll lose one of her best friends. Continue reading “The Georgia Corbins”
