HOT SAUCE REVIEWS: BOOKS
Mostly romance novels, but also fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and occasional non-fiction get celebrated and skewered like only Mrs Giggles can, heh.
O’ come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant! O’ come ye, o’ come ye to Wintersage…
Ooh, this is a nice one. I get my romance, comedy, and heartwarming drama all in one single book.
There is some good stuff here, If only the author hadn’t tackled this story like she was writing a self-help book.
Ugh, there’s a knight here who spends all the time moping and feeling sorry for himself, while the wife does all the heavy lifting.
A whiny white boy complains that he isn’t appreciated or understood enough even as girls throw themselves at him. Whose wet dream is this again?
I don’t understand the heroine. I think I’d like her better if she’s dead. Not undead, because then she’d still make noise. Just dead.
I love the first half of this book to pieces. I wish I can trade the second half for something else.
A TBR Challenge 2015 review. If this fabulously trashy story is anything to go by, we all need a redneck romance genre right away.
This is charming modern-day semi-epistolary short story, but then again, it’s short. I can hardly feel a thing.
When the author has the hero proclaim that he’s a buffoon, she’s not kidding.
Alas, the weapon failed to take off…
The story has so much potential, but by the last page, my reaction is to frown at the book and think, “Wait, is that all?”
Crazy creepy people need love too during Christmas. But I do have a problem when crazy is being passed off as romantic.
I won’t claim to be an expert in understanding the mind of a 16-year old girl, but the 16-year old girl in this story really befuddles me.
Generic cover art, boring title, but oh my goodness, the story just pulverizes me all over and it feels glorious.
The title certainly is bombastic, but the fun this silly little romp offers is pretty hard to beat.
If you hate your name, you haven’t seen these names yet. Unless your name is already in the book, that is.
Eeeuw, Japanese boyband brats who want to hump one another. Still, they are kind of cute, so I guess they’re alright.
Destructive love, incest, suicide, murder are all tossed into this heady brew of a story, but the author’s self indulgent ways can be annoying.
The heroine does her best to ensure that first impressions are as worst as can be, but the book gets better. Much better.
