It is written from the POV of the journalist that lost his hair in the 1st book due to a misfired spell. It is his findings and research so it is cute from this POV. He has a listing of Jenk's kids that he knows and how many times he yelled at each that day. Then there is a list of Jenk's insults like Tink's a Disney whore, etc. He has Rachel's memo about Interlanders and things like that.

Finally got to reading my favorite musician's book (besides my other favorite Todd Sucherman)...Butch Walker ("Drinking With Strangers: Music lessons from a teenage Bullet Belt"). So far it is very snarky, very funny, highly intelligent (though he tries to hide how deep he is with his humor), and it reveals a lot of his childhood (even things most wouldn't want to ever admit to even their diary). It also tells a lot about the music business and some musicians and jerks in it. Also now I get where some songs came from and how true many of them are. I am only like 1/10 through it. So far I would recommend it to people who haven't even heard his music. It is definitely a fun read.

It is worth a pimp it after all he did for my hubby with posting a blog on him, checking on me, reading my PMs to the band on the bus and hugging me with the most soulful hug I have ever had (I had to break away and rush him because I almost lost it completely) and signing a book to Paul and kissing it before giving it to me.

"Paul,
you are a shining star....
heart to you
brother.
~Butch Walker"

Butch Walker sounds like one hell of a great guy. Thanks for pimping his book!

I just think all that stuff would be great for the writers site. It doesn't interest me enough to buy it. Everytime my girls and I watch Tinkerbell I think of Jinks bashing her! She's so cute!

Good point Whit. I love surfing their individual sites, and it's good marketing on their part.
Jenks has a special place in my heart

Who has read Blood Hunt? I am nearly done. It is long. I have been reading for days! And....it's really, really good. Emotional. CWB can really write a story. Two's world is just so very different. And interesting.

Finished HEART OF STEEL. It wasn't as good as IRON DUKE IMO. Yasmeen and Fox were fun and exciting but their chemistry didn't build and climax Wink like Mina and the Iron Duke. The story was just as good and the world is truly fascinating. The bionic woman with mechanical flesh was cool. Good stuff!

I have been reading a vampire book and though i'm not done with it yet I have to pimp it. I'll spare you all a description of the book in my own words cause you'll just end up confused. smile the book is very pimp worthy and i'll definitely be reading the other ones in the series.

Dare I ask what part of the horse required mechanical growing flesh and what that was used for?

Starbrites, I added your pimpage to my tbr - I read the goodreads reviews and it sounds really good. And wonderfully naughty!

He put a piece on his horse robot and it grew and covered it like real flesh. It's pretty cool IMO

I just read Z.A. Maxfield's Christmas story, A Picture Perfect Holiday. This is maybe the sweetest story I have ever read! If you have a few minutes, read this one. It is so very sweet. heart heart

I loved Picture Perfect Christmas too. heart

I picked up Christmasing with You also. It's a tremendous tear jerker! I loved the story, even though it made me bawl. The dialogue was forced and unnatural, which bugged me enough that I'm not rushing to buy any of Neale's other books. But his story is incredibly emotional and touching. I'd still recommend it.

Has anyone read Jennifer Asley's Shifters Unbound series? I am almost through all the available books. Kind of different shifter world. Not realy different, but a little. Interesting. Actually, I have just devoured them. Only 2 books, 1 novella and one short story with another book due in January. I read one of her romances a good, long while ago, The Maddness of Lord Ian MacKensie. I loved it and was looking around for the rest of that series when I stumbled onto her shifter series. Pretty good. So, after I finish this, I will probably go back to her romance....18th century romances, I think. I don't remember the exact time period of Lord Ian.
