I will be joining in today and was already up early. Unfortunately it is not very warm and looks like it will be rainy later, so I won’t be able to read outside. I did that on Thursday though, as it was such a lovely & sunny day!
That’s my pile of books today. Not sure if I really read from all of them, but let’s see 🙂On my Kindle, I am still reading Deadhouse Gates by Steven Erikson and am about to start Chapter 3, at 11%. I also finished The Black Company by Glenn Cook and went straight over to the second part of the trilogy, Shadows Linger. I only read 5% of that so far.
I also wanted to sneak into some of my new books as well. I am 39 pages into Nevernight by Jay Kristoff but not a fan of the style of writing and the story so far. I want to give it another chance though and read a little bit more before I decide whether it’s still worth it or not. I already read 108 pages of The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin and loved it so far. I haven’t started Cell yet and might not even do so today. But I am very excited and if the others don’t do it for me today, I will definitely give it a chance!
I made a decision and didn’t read any of my selected books. Instead I decided to try something smutty & sexy. A short easy romance novel. I picked the wrong one though. Next time I just go to fanfiction.net. At least it’s free there. So the book I chose is called Cowgirl up and ride by Lorelei James. It’s the third of a series but that doesn’t really matter. Yeah, Cowboy Smut! Who doesn’t like hot, sweaty Cowboys? I sure do! But this book… THIS BOOK! It’s just too much! I can’t read it without getting angry xD I wasn’t expecting it to be high literature, but it just makes me laugh, cringe or get frustrated.
So there’s this girl AJ who is 22 now. She has been in love with Cowboy#1 since she was 5. Yes, 5! He’s 35 now, so he was 18 then.. Anyways. She turns 22 and decides to finally try and approach him. So what is she doing? She dresses up like a slut and dances with other guys in front of Cowboy#1. And pretends she doesn’t even realize he is there. WTF GIRL! But even worse, it totally turns him on and of course she’s the hottest chick in town (but oh so innocent) and they talk but she pretends to be disinterested and argh, I hate them both!!! Then she talks about giving other guys blowjobs!
This whole conversation they have is just a giant WTF. There is some half-assed remorse from his side as AJ is so much younger and used to be his son’s babysitter and blabla, but in the end -what else- they decide to hook up and f*ck. So this is all going to lead to a forbidden experienced old guy with innocent young girl romance. That’s fine, I was expecting this, but it’s soo cringey and sometimes written so badly. And then the characters all don’t make sense. And of course everyone is super hot and sexy and his dick is massive and she’s like ‘Oh, it won’t fit!’
And there is really this quote, I am not kidding!!
Her gaze zeroed in on his groin and her heart rate quadrupled. “Umm. Wow. Did it grow? Because it looks bigger.”
“Kissin’ your red-hot love flower made this stem grow big and hard just for you, baby doll.”
I made it to 28%, but that’s it! Fortunately it wasn’t expensive at all. I will appreciate all of my books much more now!
I didn’t get to read any more before work and just got back home. It turned out to be a really nice day after all and my Boyfriend even let our baby chicks outside for a little while. They are a little over 2 weeks old now ❤
