Monday Musings: The Case Of The DNF

Musings of A Romance Junkie

index

Oooooh this post will surely ruffle some feathers, but you know me, I gotta speak on it so here goes:

  1. Should books be returnable items?
  2. Should readers be allowed to review books that they’ve admittedly did not finish or returned?

I will be the first to admit that I’ve returned a book or two in my time. They either offended me on some level, or the writing was just so bad that I considered it a defective item and returned it. Did I feel guilty? Hell nah. I felt at the time that I didn’t get my money’s worth so I was justified in returning it. That was until I came across a Facebook thread where a lot of authors bemoaned:

My immediate reaction:

571

But then I went back and really read some of the comments, and the authors were saying things like Amazon shouldn’t allow returns once their book…

When society tries to put you in a box, knock the walls down. –Tati Green

“You have a pretty face” is such a back-handed compliment. It’s like telling me that my face is beautiful, but the rest of me is not.

Despite what society says, my curves are hot.
My love life, on the other hand, is not.

My mom says I’ll never find love because of my weight.
My sister says I’ll never find love because of my personality.
My almost-fiancé says I’ll never find love because I’m incapable of loving anyone.

My mom and sister are full of it, but my ex kind of has a point.

At twenty-seven years old, I’ve never been in love. I date a lot, yet sparks never fly. But when I experienced the heart-pounding, skin tingling feeling for the first time, I didn’t…

Monday Musings: No New Books Challenge

Musings of A Romance Junkie

NO

I admit, I am a 1-click addict. Dammit, if I see a book that I want to read, I click it! The only problem is, I never make the time to read the damn book! As of the time of this posting, I have 112 books in my TBR. This does not include the ARCs I have been bequeathed by all the fabulous authors I’ve met. That is where I am most ashamed.

I have authors who have gifted me books from almost a year ago, and I have not yet read them. And for this,

im-sorry

I plan to remedy this because I feel like a heap of shit for not reading and reviewing these ARCs, and I’m going to do something about it-starting in October. No seriously, I’m not saying this because I’m procrastinating, but because I need time to wrap up everything else I’ve got on the burner…

Her work spans genres, and you never know what to expect from one book to the next. Enough yapping, let’s meet Rush.

They say that love happens when you least expect it.

 Meet the star of this story, Hunter “Rush” Cambridge.  Heartthrob, something of a local celebrity, and hugely guarded of those he loves. Rush has never been in love. Lust is more his thing. In fact, he’s all business. The former athlete, and current club owner is only focused on…
