Review: Love, Come to Me

Love, Come to MeLove, Come to Me by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Well, it was uncomplicated. Typical romance written in the 80s and early 90s, when books mainly revolved around the dashing, smart, rich alpha male. There is nothing really special

I really liked it because it took me to a time when I used to gorge on these.. happy and carefree days, when i could read, dream for sometime and move on to the next one :)

Review: See Jane Score (Chinooks Hockey #2)

See Jane Score (Chinooks Hockey Team, #2)See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I started reading this book as soon as I finished Simply Irresistible, the first book in the Chinooks Hockey Team series. I was hoping to find some of the same characters making a reappearance in a more meaty role. However, this book takes you forward a few years, where the two hockey players mentioned in Simply Irresistible have retired. The book has a good hero, but his character is not given much depth. I know that he has good manners and is worried about his injury. But that is it! However, I loved the chemistry between Jane and Luc, and the dialogue was very witty and loads of fun.

One common theme I noticed between both the Hockey series books was that both heroines have low slef esteem. Jane has a self confessed "Napolean Complex" and sabotages her own relationships.

Anyways, all in all, a very easy read, good for a fun few hours.

New Year, New Challenges

Well, its 2012! (I know its already been 3 months, but I am going to pretend I wrote this in Jan, so please, indulge me!) 2011 went pretty well in terms of books, I completed almost all the challenges which I took and also tried to keep up with the reviews. One challenge I did not even touch though was the Shakespeare Challenge. This is personally very sad for me as I started off the exciting blogging and reviewing adventure mainly due to this challenge. However, its another year!

I read more than a 100 books last year and most of it was thanks to my e-reader and the vast collection of books available on the net. This year, I very optimistically upped my total books read number to 125 a year, and obviously, my subconsious felt the pressure and immediately made me slow down my reads. Anyways, this year, my focus is the same, to diversify my reading and get in some classics into the mix as well.

Here's to another great year of reading and reviewing!

Review: Simply Irresistible (Chinooks Hockey #1)

Simply Irresistible (Chinooks Hockey Team, #1)Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I didnt like it to start of with. I kept feeling like hitting Gorgeanne on the head and shouting at her to get a life! But, things get better, she does get hold of things and turns out to be ok.

Its a classic love at first sight (almost) kind of story. I never get these type of stories but, it has been known to happen :).

My advice, you will be bored for the first few chapters, hate both the characters, but, stick with it, you will not regret it.

I liked the second half so much, i picked up the second book in the series immediately!
