2 stars-- Gabriel's Redemption (Gabriel's Inferno #3) by Sylvain Reynard

Oh my word. It took me for freaking ever to finish Gabriel's Redemption. Goodness but I do not understand the fan girl reviews for this at all.

The Gist: Academic types city hopping for work, school and fun. All while picking ridiculous fights with one another.

[memes] My FAVORITE Tropes & One I LOATHE + my week


Whew a week! LOTS of yard work. Ridiculous amount of yardwork. I'm starting to put in my fall garden so there was a lot of planting and starting to pull some summer plants. And working on a raised bed around one of the trees. 

I did a bunch of sunset chasing. It's been hot and humid here but gorgeous sunsets most nights.

Hm. Not too much else. Food pantry was fine, the herd is doing okay though they're driving me bonkers.

3 stars-- Highland Spitfire (Highland Weddings #1) by Mary Wine

Highland Spitfire landed on my review pile a few, erm, years ago. I loved the cover -- seriously this cover has amazing covers!-- and accepted it. Then realized Mary Wine is the pen name of Dawn Ryder. Who I'd just tried and...did not like... at all. *cue the blogger groan* So it's sat on the review pile for a few years. I finally tackled it. It wasn't knock me over amazing but it wasn't so bad, either! Yay!
The Gist: Rival clans and a King's Regent who's had enough of all the fighting and killing over a stupid generations old grudge. His solution? The Laird's kids are gonna marry. They have no choice. Either they marry at that moment or he's going to slaughter both clans and be done with all of them. So....a wedding. With two very reluctant participants.

[memes] Be My Friend? + my week in books


This week was busy once again. Just a lot of random around the house and errands and chasing sunsets for a post. 

The food pantry was pretty busy. It was good, though. I did some babysitting while there which was different. And helped someone with their resume.
