Special: Book Musings

✏️ #FirstLineFriday: Bright Side

When I think about friendship, Bright Side would be the first book that comes to mind. I love how each of them supported each others. And Gus is such a special character. I love him so much but not as BBF, but a BFF. It would be nice to have someone like him in real life.

Blurb:
Secrets.
Everyone has one.
Some are bigger than others.
And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you …
And some will end you.

Kate Sedgwick’s life has been anything but typical. She’s endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there’s a reason her best friend Gus calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong-willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She’s also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks.

They both feel it.
But they each have a reason to fight it.
They each have a secret.

And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you …
And some will end you.

#FirstLineFriday: Taking Turns

I think the phrase the more the merrier is most applicable when it comes to sexual gratification 😜 haha! I love reading books about polyamory relationship because I like to see how the author plays with the dynamics between the characters.

The thing is in majority of such books, even though initially the characters had an unconventional relationship, I don’t like it when they ended up in a conventional one. I understand most romance readers goal is the conventional HEA, but I read to escape reality. I want to push boundaries. I want authors to sell me the idea that HEA could work when there’s more than 2 people in a relationship, even if emotions only involved with the main couple. Maybe I should just pursue such things in real life instead of waiting for it to happen in fiction hmm? 😋

Taking Turns (Turning #1) by J.A. Huss
Amazon |  Goodreads  |  Review

Blurb:

I’ve never been afraid of the dark…but that doesn’t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can’t have, but I should’ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world.

Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes.

Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side.

Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg.

It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden.

I just didn’t expect to like them.

A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas is a magnificent continuation of the series. Amazingly for a 600+ pages, I don’t think there was any dull moment. The action scenes were heart thumping. The drama was infuriating (in a good way). The love was inspiring and the sex was scorching. I’m looking forward to see how the author is going to take the next book to the next level.

#FirstLineFriday: A Court of Mist and Fury

Since ACOWAR is releasing soon (May 2, 2017!), I thought it would be nice to be reminded of ACOMAF 😊

You might be wondering WTF is going on with this pic? Well, it’s my attempt of recreating Night Court glorious 💫 night sky surrounding my kindle 😂 I can’t decide if I like it or not. One moment I love it, the next moment I thought it look like crap 😆 But the book is awesome so I don’t really care lol!

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas
Amazon | My Review  |  Goodreads

Blurb:
Spoilerish if you haven’t read book 1

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
