"All My Friends are Dead" By: Avery Monsen Review

All My Friends are Dead
By: Avery Monsen and Jory John

Synopsis from Goodreads
If you're a dinosaur, all of your friends are dead. If you're a pirate, all of your friends have scurvy. If you're a tree, all of your friends are end tables. Each page of this laugh-out-loud illustrated humor book showcases the downside of being everything from a clown to a cassette tape to a zombie. Cute and dark all at once, this hilarious children's book for adults teaches valuable lessons about life while exploring each cartoon character's unique grievance and wide-eyed predicament. From the sock whose only friends have gone missing to the houseplant whose friends are being slowly killed by irresponsible plant owners (like you), All My Friends Are Dead presents a delightful primer for laughing at the inevitable.
My Thoughts
    All my Friends are Dead is a funny, short tale that relates the story of a dinosaur, an old guy, and a tree and how all of their friends are dead. At less than probably 100 pages, with very little text, the author relies on the drawings and simple phrases to relay his hilarity. Incredibly funny and a short read, I think it only took three minutes from start to finish. I don’t know if I’d pay for it myself, but it was a cute library book checkout for the weekend.

Note: There is a sequel, All My Friends Are Still Dead...guess what I’m looking for at my library tomorrow?

The Brunette Librarian's

Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir10. Jenny Lawson - I recently read Lets Pretend this Never Happened and am totally infatuated with the Bloggess! She's funny and I can't wait to see what else happens in her life. I totally am jealous of all of the stuffed mice too!

My reviews of The Ugly Duchess, Paris in Love, When Beauty Tamed the Beast and The Duke is Mine

"The Tycoon's Revenge" By: Melody Anne Review

The Tycoon’s Revenge
By: Melody Anne

Synopsis from Goodreads
Jasmine Freeman’s world is about to tumble down around her and the one responsible for it is none other than her first love, Derek Titan. She hasn't seen him in ten years, and they are both going to learn the truth of what happened back then.  
Jasmine grew up wealthy and oblivious to the destruction her father caused all around him. Derek was from the wrong side of the tracks. In ten years their lives will be reversed. He is now a multi-billionaire tycoon and she works hard, but barely gets by due to her father’s unethical business practices.  
Derek comes seeking revenge and instead finds out he has a half grown son and the woman he's been angry with for so many years is not who he thought she was. They both fight against the passion they still feel for each other, but in the end it is irresistible.  
Come take the journey with Derek and Jasmine as they rediscover a passion that never died and the lies that kept them apart
My Thoughts
     Having just finished this book, my thoughts are still a little jumbled, but I am overwhelmed by just a sense of disappointment. There was a lot of potential here and it just never came together for me.
    Jasmine and David have known one another for years. Following a failed marriage attempt, the two have separated and went there own ways. Nearly a decade later, fate brings the two back together with David buying the company were Jasmine works.
    There was a lot of conflict in this book, so the author had a ton to work with. A secret baby (Jasmine was pregnant when she left David, gasp!), daddy issues, David’s millionaire status, faded love, and a whole lot more. But it never took off and I felt like the book was half finished. Issues weren't dealt with, or when they were it was finished in like two paragraphs when it could have taken pages. I hardly ever complain about a book being too short, but this one most definitely was. To add to the whole half finished idea, I never felt like I knew Jasmine or Derek well enough, even though I read an entire book about the two.
     This one just never worked for me. I think its a trilogy but I’m not even interested in the slightest. I wanted to like this one but...I never did.

"Ink Lust" By: Jayne Kingston Review

Ink Lust
By: Jayne Kingston

Synopsis from Goodreads
Leni Brewster should have been disappointed when her twin sister had to bail on holding her hand during her first tattoo, but going to her appointment solo means time alone with the sexy-as-hell tattoo artist who falls into the Do Not Touch category. Only Jamie Rodriguez isn't as off-limits as Leni thinks. Privately single for months, Jamie finds himself more than looking forward to having the hot little librarian in his chair. And when she accidentally reveals a naughty secret about herself, he can't get his hands on her fast enough-he has to know what else she's hiding under that buttoned-up exterior. What he discovers sets his blood to boiling, igniting a burning determination to test every single one of the boundaries, both personal and physical, that she's set for herself.
My Thoughts

     I’m going to be completely honest here and admit I picked this book up because it featured a librarian. I like tattooed heroes, add in a naughty librarian, and you have a recipe for a perfect book right? Unfortunately, those were really the only two things I enjoyed about this book.
     The story starts out with Leni getting a tattoo from Jamie. He has tattooed her sister previously but always had a bit of a crush on Leni. Once the tattoo is finished, he offers her a ride home. What do you think happens once they enter her apartment?
    I have a problem with instant lust stories and this book is pretty much that to a T. I appreciated the author trying to get the librarian stereotype broken but it was not very tastefully done. I didn’t care for either of the characters, they both seemed vapid and just flat out irritating. I tried to like this one and honestly thought the whole package was there, but I couldn’t get past the flat characters and almost zero story line.

"F in Exams" By: Richard Benson Review

F in Exams
By: Richard Benson

Synopsis from Goodreads
We've all been there. You've been studying hard, the day of the BIG test arrives, you turn over the paper, and 'what the *&%@ does that mean?!' Not a clue. 
This book is packed full of hilarious examples of the more creative ways that students have tackled those particularly awkward exam questions.
My Thoughts
     Always a sucker for crazy test answers, I find myself drawn to the “really? Really did they write that?” kind of answers. Pretty funny and packed full of answers to tests, I found myself laughing out loud to several of the quote, unquote answers. The only thing that bothered me was whether or not they were real. I looked over the book several times trying to see if it was just satirical or if it was real answers to tests, and I still don’t know. Regardless its a quick, funny book that I found in the middle of a bunch of boring nonfiction books.

A few of my favorite questions and answers are:
Give the names of two gases  that might contribute to global warming.1. Bottom Gas2. Cow burps
There are 300 students in the 10th grade. Mary and MArk want to find out the 10th grade’s favorite color. Mary asks 30 people. Mark asks 150 people. Mark says, “My conclusions are more likely to be reliable than Mary’s.” Why does Mark think he is right? A: Because Mark is a man
How high is Mount Everest?A: Depends on how much snowfall it has had since it was last measured.
What were the circumstances of Julius Caesar’s death?A: Suspicious ones

Giveaway!! "Rocked Under" By: Cora Hawkes Review & Tour

Rocked Under
By: Cora Hawkes
Synopsis from Goodreads
Falling in love isn't always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of how hard it can be to let go... 
Picking up the pieces and starting again in the US, Emma enrols in college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do what she wants and live how she chooses, and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again. 
That is, until Scott Mason walks on stage... 
Intense bad boy Scott is the lead singer of a popular local rock band. A ladies’ man and Ashley's long-time friend, Scott holds an instant fascination for Emma — she finds herself drawn to him, even though he represents everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette — light it, use it, and lose it.  
For her cousin's sake, Emma makes an effort to get along with Scott, but she soon discovers that there is more to him than first appears, making him even more dangerous in her eyes. Behind the façade of friendship, jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurity fester — an internal battle rages as she fights her attraction and does everything she can to stop history from repeating itself. 
One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.
About the Author
Cora Hawkes lives in England with her man and their four children. She thinks the kindle is the greatest invention ever and hers is mostly filled with paranormal and fantasy romances. Favourite books are Kresley Cole's IAD series, Jennifer Armentrout's Covenant series and Heather killough-Walden's The Chosen Soul series. 
Apart from family-time, reading and writing, she LOVES music and going to gigs. She hates soaps and rarely watches TV but loves The Vampire Diaries, True Blood and Gossip Girl.
My Thoughts
    I have such a thing for new adult books now. There is something about being in your early 20s and having absolutely no idea what direction your life can take you. Its at this cusp that we find both Emma and Scott, two wildly incompatible yet totally made for one another people.
The book starts out with a very confused Emma finding her way through America. She's just moved in with her friend, not knowing anyone and unsure of her place in the world. One night at a bar she meets Scott, bad boy and rock God. Attracted to Scott, Emma finds herself drawn to him. Yet everything he is seems to go against everything she ever believed in.
I don't know how to even describe this book without giving away much, but I will say it is intense. There are a lot of things at work here and you have to read it fairly carefully to catch it all. With that said, you know when you read and you get that weird little thrill when two characters interact? Well, I totally had that. I hated them, I loved them, I wanted to cheer, I wanted to cry. It was super emotional and an utter roller coaster but I adored it. The story moved quickly and when I was finished, I was so stinkin' excited to see its part of a series.

I had never picked up a guitar in my life — and it showed. Scott handed me a beautiful, black acoustic guitar. I didn't even know how to hold it but I tried my best, and at least Scott was smiling again, which is what I had aimed for. 
He chuckled and moved his hand down over his face to try to hide his amusement. "You don't hold it like that…Here…” 
I was sitting on the edge of a big footstool and he came to sit behind me. He shifted forwards until I was sitting between his hard, warm thighs. I was so aware of him that I froze. I didn't dare move. He came closer and put his arms around me to reach the guitar. His naked chest came into contact with my back, making my core temperature rise to dangerous levels. His scent was enveloping me, taunting me, and this time there was no escape. 
His head peered over my shoulder causing the hairs on the back of my neck to stand on end. 
"Hold it like this," he whispered close to my ear as he moved my hand into the right position. 
His breath tickled me, making a shudder run down my back. 
He paused for a second and I thought he had noticed. "And if you," he slid his hot hand under my thigh gently and lifted it for me until only my toes were touching the floor, "raise your knee, you can rest it here." 
"Okay,” I whispered. It was all I was capable of saying with his hands all over me. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. 
He took his hands away and rested them on my thighs. "Now try." His voice was gruff. 
I started playing but my mind was focused on the parts of my body that he was touching. I was dreadful. He was just so there that I couldn't have concentrated if my life had depended on it. 
He turned his face towards my neck and I heard him inhale through his nose gently. His grip on my thighs tightened as he shifted closer to my backside and his forehead hit my shoulder heavily. 
Shit! I'm going to spontaneously combust any goddamn bloody minute now if he doesn't stop.

It's a great way to make new blogger friends!

Today's Question:
We always talk about books that we want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

     So beyond the standard books I've bought my mom lately, one book sticks out.
     I'm ashamed to say it but VERY few of my friends read. I have tons of friends where I work that read, but in real life, nope. One of my very favorite people in the world, Cassie, is a park ranger. She travels the U.S. and works in National Parks. This girl is an adventurer, let me tell ya! She's been to Alaska, to the West and even gave tours of the Lincoln house in Springfield. Right now she's in Florida hikin' next to manatees and alligators.
      Anyway, after reading Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, I was astounded by its absolute beauty. The gorgeousness of the writing, the story, the characters all come together to create a perfect world. So when my friend was leaving for her next adventure, I gave her CeeCee's story about finding yourself. The books means a lot to me as well as my friend. How's that for a sappy story? :)
What book have you given away lately?

"Where I Need to Be" By: Kimberly Knight Review

Where I Need to Be
By: Kimberly Knight

Synopsis from Goodreads
Spencer Marshall was done moping. After catching her boyfriend cheating with his secretary, she decides to have a girl's weekend in Vegas with her best friend Ryan. Lady Luck must be looking out for Spencer, because that weekend will change her life forever. Despite what people say, not everything stays in Vegas.
My Thoughts
    I’m counting this book for my challenges even though it turned out to be a DNF for me. I read almost to the end, but I didn’t care at all how it ended, so I pretty much had to quit. Life’s too short to read a bad book!
    Spencer starts out the story mad that her boyfriend because she caught him cheating. In the mean time, she’s been eyeing a boy at her gym. On a weekend to Vegas with her friend, she sees the boy from the gym and randomly starts dancing with him at a club. The next day at a casino she introduces herself to him and suddenly, they decide to become an item.
     Ugh, where do I begin? First off, Spencer was so stinkin’ self-absorbed and just weird that I never liked her as a character. Never. Then she randomly takes this trip to Vegas and starts grinding on this random guy she doesn’t know, but hey, she’s winked a time or two at him at the gym. Weirdo...then the sudden intense attraction left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The random guy is totally self absorbed as well and then there is baby mama drama later in the story. Just a little too much for me, to be honest. I don't even remember the hero's name, that's how little I cared.
    I think with different characters I might have liked this story better, but I disliked both the hero and the heroine so much that I simply quit reading. I didn’t care what happened to them, at all, so Where I Need to Be has officially become the first DNF of my year!

"Hunter's Season" By: Thea Harrison Review

Hunter's Season
By: Thea Harrison

Synopsis from Goodreads

Xanthe is everything Naida wasn’t, and the passion she stirs in him is something he thought had long passed him by.
My Thoughts
      I’ve been a fan of this series since the very first book. I loved the new world created by Thea Harrison and how diverse the characters were. Yet when I read this short novella, I just couldn’t get in the groove. I don’t know if its me or the book, but it didn’t work for me on any level.
     Xanthe is some sort of a noble in a royal court within our paranormal world Thea Harrison has created. Xanthe’s first wife was involved in a plot on Queen Niniane in a previous book and has since been killed. Nadia is a private guard of the Queen and ultimately becomes Xanthe’s security guard after an assassination attempt on his life. Nadia and Xanthe spend most of the novella in Nadia’s home while Xanthe is recuperating from the assassination attempt.
     I don’t know what the problem was, but I never connected with either Xanthe or Nadia. Xanthe seemed so off putting. He was proper and seemed very old order. It didn’t even go with my view of Xanthe for him to feel romantically inclined towards Nadia. Nadia is a tough chick more in line with security guards, so I pictured this ripped, say it like it is, pants wearin’ strong female. Xanthe is old fashioned and I just don’t see him interested in Nadia at all.
     The actual romance seemed unrealistic, one moment they don’t even know each other and suddenly they are professing ever lasting love. I’ve been a fan but this one didn’t do it for me at all. The last few have drug for me, so I’m not sure if I’m gonna pick up the rest of the series. Guess we’ll see what Thea Harrison has in store.

Release Day & Giveaway!! "Keeping Secrets in Seattle" By: Brooke Moss

Keeping Secrets in Seattle
By: Brooke Moss

Synopsis from Goodreads

Seattle hairstylist Violet Murphy always knew the day would come when her best friend Gabe Parker would want to settle down. She’d secretly wished it would be with her, but now that he’s chosen someone else—the prim, perfect Alicia—he wants Vi to be his best man.
Healing her broken heart isn’t easy, but when Violet meets Landon Harlow, a man who isn’t fazed by her funky style and less-than-delicate attitude, she takes a step in the right direction. Until Gabe’s fiancé’s gorgeous façade begins to crack, and Violet’s disturbing past comes back to haunt her, that is. Vi now finds herself armed with a series of lies that would break Gabe’s heart—and his engagement—if he knew their truth, and a secret from their childhood that could change everything.
With the wedding looming, her relationships unraveling, and the bachelor party of the century to plan, Violet must choose between a fresh start with Landon, or confronting her painful past and risking it all for a chance at a future with Gabe.

About the Author
Brooke Moss lives in beautiful eastern Washington with her handsome nerd and five darling, wicked children. When she isn't spinning tales, she spends her time collecting tacky owl décor, changing the color of her hair, and watching too much reality television.

Bring Me Back
Bring Me Back
By: Karen Booth
Music critic Claire Abby is a single mom dreading her daughter’s departure for college and worried that turning forty will leave her career running on fumes. She’s floored when she lands a Rolling Stone cover story on 80s British rock legend Christopher Penman. She spent her teenage years fantasizing he was her boyfriend.

In person, Christopher is everything Claire feared he’d be—charming, witty and unwilling to address the rumors he’s dodged for a decade. Still, she contains her adolescent fantasies and manages to earn his trust, unearthing the truth and the devastating secret behind it. His blockbuster story is her first priority when she returns home, a nearly impossible task when Christopher starts calling and flirting. She knows she should maintain a professional distance. She knows she should focus on the story. She knows it would be best to simply walk away. But how can she say “no” to the man she could never forget?

Wolf with Benefits (Pride, #8)
Wolf With Benefits
By: Shelly Laurenston

Ricky Lee has no plans of getting serious about anyone, but he will protect Toni Jean-Louis Parker. Not just because he’s been hired to do so, but because it’s the right thing to do. And if that means traveling around the country with one complicated She-jackal, dealing with chocolate-eating wild dogs, instigating trouble between his brothers, and having the most amazing sex he’s ever had…well, who said his job didn’t have perks?

Toni doesn’t know how she keeps getting herself into these situations. But even she has to admit there’s something about Ricky Lee Reed that she finds kind of interesting…and downright sexy. Now they just have to survive long enough to figure out if what they have is worth fighting for…

Lord of Wicked Intentions (The Lost Lords of Pembrook, #3)
Lord of Wicked Intentions
By: Lorraine Heath

Lord Rafe Eason may be of noble blood, but survival taught him to rely only on himself and to love no one. Yet when he sets his eyes on Miss Evelyn Chambers, and earl's illegitimate daughter, he is determined to have her, if only as his mistress.

After her father's death, Evelyn Chambers never imagined she would be sold to the highest bidder, yet circumstances give her little choice except to accept the lord's indecent proposal. Rafe is wealthy, as well as ruthless. Yet his coldness belies deep passion and deeper secrets. If she must be his, Evelyn intends to lay bare everything the Lord of Pembrook is hiding. But dark discoveries threaten to destroy them both until unexpected love guides the last lost lord home.

I don't know what I'm going to read next...Have some stuff I should be reading for reading group...but....meh!
