It's not that fun to keep hearing people slam the books month after month. (Unless they are dam..."

My solution for this is, if I don't think the book is going to appeal to me at all, I just enjoy the ladies at the end of the month and spend that time reading a book I do want to read. If I do make a mistake and end up reading a baddie/snoozer with the group, I don't post in the forums unless I have something that will REALLY add to the discussion, no need to repeat when I get to rate and review the book anyway.

62938 I don't remember the exact line, but when she was talking about her favorite taxidermist.

I love you Bonnie, you're so fun and interesting to listen to!

62938 I just finished Good Omens and I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones. I'm a little disappointed I was led to believe it's extra dark and violent, so now I think those recommenders are ninnies.

62938 Just finished this and I have to say I had a good time with this. I always enjoy a fluffy mystery novel, and Eve I loved her (and Galahad too!)

Though Gotta agree with some other posters though that Roarke was a bit... creepy and over the top and that the mystery was a bit DING DING DING HEY I'M THE KILLER but I'm more about the journey in these kinds of books than "omg nail biting who did it?!?!?!"

Also, the sci-fi was super cheesy for me too, but everything being broken/falling apart just reminded me of a lot of old P.I. stories, just now more... shiny and automatic. What I don't get, is why have the Sci-fi?? It took such a HUGE back seat, it could have been a great modern type book with barely any editing.

It's been mentioned several times that members wanted to have two books from the same series one month. Felicia also added that book 3 in the series kind of ends the romantic story arc if you really want more completeness.

62938 goodreads has been recommending the first book for a long time now, so I'm excited to read this!

62938 I just finished reading "The Dark Knight" The Dark Knight (Montagues, #4) by Elizabeth Elliott. Wonderful read for anyone who likes good guys wear black and thoroughly enjoy the assassin's creed series (especially Ezio).

Next I'll probably resign myself to read my local book club Feb. pick "Glow" Glow (Sky Chasers, #1) by Amy Kathleen Ryan.

62938 I was surfing through the reviews of the book, and someone linked to this little gem of a spoof summery video of the book.

Yes! I'm so not glad I'm not the only one who felt like Frank was a complete slime ball. It really annoyed me how their "yay we can be married again" getaway just felt like Frank was there for him and mostly ignored her unless he wanted to get his groove on. How unromantic. But, I'm going to guess we weren't suppose to really LOVE Frank or we might be really sour on Claire.

Oh I didn't mean there was anything wrong with YA or that they can't be enjoyable, for me they are just lighter reads than what I'd normally pick for myself, and 99% of the time I personally despise YA books. I'm going to blame it on the fact that I can't ever seem to relate to the main character.

40 books enjoyed is better than 200 books hated. (That be a true waste of time and effort, and not fair to authors and publishers rolling out all those 1-2 stars in the name of my goodreads epeen) But 200 YA books enjoyed. Let me be first in line to clap cause that's amazing! Especially in the digital age we live in with all the "shiny" distractions.

62938 I pledged 30 books last year, and didn't even start until April, and managed 39. Made it a nice even 40 this year.

I could try to bulldoze more, but then I'm reading for numbers and not reading to be entertained or learn something, which is more important to me.

Plus I know myself and I'd be focused on making sure the books are short (IE low page count or EASY YA) which is cheating.

62938 I gave up on Catching Fire. I slogged through Hunger Games, and just didn't get the hype, so I was like ok, maybe I need to move farther, got half way through book 2 and just decided enough is enough.

I couldn't take any more of the choppy "simplistic" writing. I get it, it's YA, but even when I was a teen I'd have demanded more from my books. Then everything about the world was just too much to believe, among other things.

At this point the promise of action is gone, the games are over, so it's boring self interested dialogue ahoy with a bunch of characters that could all die in a fire and I'd probably enjoy that more.

Katniss the girl I wish was on fire.

I don't mind, we're here to figure out what a penile fantasy is and men are going to know best.

Besides you can't offend me for what I didn't make and is purely a "pleasure read." aka a waste of my free time with little to no expectations of being mind expanding.

62938 Crooked Fang I started reading this novel yesterday. It very much reminds me of what I'd think a penile fantasy would read like.

Though I haven't finished it so I can't say that it will maintain the trend, the whole time while reading, in the back of my head I just kept thinking about this thread and how this book seems a perfect example.

I think she can chose to look average or even unappealing if she wanted to, wouldn't do well for soul hunting. Remember the conversation between Carter and her, where she asks why he chooses to look like a bum, and he asks why a succubus who hates her job chooses to look drop dead sexy.

Though I totally agree, either more sexy times or more people should have been clawing for her attention at least.

62938 true, but romantic movies (rom-coms I'm looking at you!) by my personal rule of thumb are beyond dreadful.

True probably might not be best to go hunting Occult topics, but she was using the Bible and I'm sure plenty of websites offer a more broad discussion on creatures described without sending up red flags in search histories. Besides... she's looking up about Nephilim, not how to make a bomb, who's she hiding from?
