WEEKLY RECAP: May 3-May 9, 2015


THIS WEEK ON FEMINIST FAIRY TALE REVIEWS
MY READING UPDATE

A Bollywood Affair
A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev (contemporary romance)
An emotional and funny romance between a Bollywood director and a small-town Indian girl.  I loved the inclusion of Indian culture and how different it made the story.  Review coming soon.

The Deal (Off-Campus, #1)
The Deal by Elle Kennedy (NA contemporary)
I had a high expectations for this and they were met!  I adore sports romances and really seem to be getting into them in a New Adult setting.  Review coming soon.

Viscount of Vice (Covent Garden Cubs, #0.5)
Viscount of Vice by Shana Galen (historical romance)
This was an okay romance that did one thing it was supposed to: intrigue me enough to want to seek out the rest of the series. The love story between Flynn and Emma was boring to me and I found myself flipping pages until I got to any mention of the dastardly Satin and Flynn's long-lost brother Robbie. I am looking forward to learning more about Satin in the Covent Garden Cubs series and, of course, I am already anticipating Robbie getting his own story soon.


CURRENTLY READING


The Friend Zone (Game On, #2) Of Silk and Steam (London Steampunk, #5)

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES AND LINKS

1. Obviously, news about baby Princess Charlotte was everywhere this week.  I thought this piece about the media's response to The Royal Baby in History was very interesting.

2. Historical romance author has a new nonfiction book called Dangerous Books for Girls: The Bad Reputation of Romance Novels Explained.  To promote it, she wrote a fascinating article, 7 Reasons It's Actually Totally Feminist To Read and Write Romance Novels, Thank You Very Much that I want to hand out to everyone who disses this genre.

3. I love fashion especially the history of it.  So I thoroughly enjoyed What Are Historical Broads Always Talking About in Fashion Plates?.

NEXT WEEK'S NEW RELEASES

  1. I am excited for Reluctant Hero...because quite frankly I can't get enough of Lorraine Heath. And doesn't she write the best westerns? Yay for reading The Deal. What a great book that is...way better than I thought it would be. Looking forward to reading your review. Hope you have a fun reading week.
