Zoe's Books

I could read before I could write. I read now, when I can't write, or when I'm stuck in a writing rut. I read early in the morning, and late at night. I read to feel, and escape from feelings, and explore feelings I've never had but I'm curious about. I read for adventure and romance and passion and the journey. I read to my kids. I try to read to my husband, but he's busy reading himself. And he laughs at all the naughty parts...I don't get it, they're my favourite passages!

Reservations for Two (Harlequin LP Superromance Series #1834) - Jennifer Lohmann What I liked:
1. Tilly and Dan are well crafted, 3 dimensional characters. And they're NICE, but not perfect. Especially Dan - he had me hooked from the beginning, even when I was pissed at him.
2. The food. OMG.
3. Tilly's blue hair. (That's not a spoiler, she has blue hair throughout the entire book. Shame it didn't make it to the cover)
4. Dan's cast of friends. Especially Mike - I hope that he gets his own book soon.

What I was less keen on:
1. This is no reflection on the author, and more that I don't usually read SuperRomances, but there was a LOT of description - verging on being repetitive. What was being described totally worked for me, the food, the community, their fears and hopes, etc. I just found myself skimming passages. That's a personal preference, I like short, snappy books and this was more languid and exploratory.

But really, that's it. This was a lovely, romantic read. I read about this book on a blog, and being half-Polish, I took a chance and picked up a book I probably would have skipped over on my way. And it was a good deal too - I got it at the supermarket, 25% off. Considering the length, and that it was two nights of reading, that's awesome. Can't wait for Reina's story.
