On the quest for positivity, we want to open a post about book recommendations. Please recommend your favorite books here.
No self-promo or cross promo allowed. (AKA, don’t have a friend come on recommending your book; this thread is only for readers who absolutely love a book.)
There are a few rules, as follows:
Warn other readers about sensitive material.
Do not recommend books that glorify child abuse, child rape, etc. (AKA, do not recommend books like Lolita. There are other sites for discussions of that sort of book. This site is not one of them.)
Do not recommend books that glorify bullying. If the book you enjoy features bullying that also includes a strong redemption arc, please feel free to recommend it.
Please note if the book is a ménage, reverse harem, or harem title.
Please warn if the book requires a 18+ content advisory warning.
Do not slam other books, even if you don’t agree with a recommendation. It is OK to reply to a comment should the recommender have forgotten to include a flag. (So if you see a reverse harem book that wasn’t labeled as a reverse harem, please comment! That’s okay.)
It is not okay to go EW REVERSE HAREM! Gross!
Play nice with others. Thank you!
This week, the female read After Dark by Jayne Castle. She found it to be amusing, although the copy she purchased had an unfortunate number of formatting errors and similar, which made for some difficulties with the reading experience. She wishes to slap the publisher for making such a shoddy ebook. That said, it was enjoyable, and she liked it, so she is willing to recommend it, just go in aware that the book has some issues on the formatting front which can become very annoying very quickly.
But it was still a fun book. After Dark includes some adult subject matter and enough sex that we of the Furred & Frond Management wouldn’t suggest anyone below the age of 16 to read. 18+ might be better, as at least one of the scenes was a little more explicit than perhaps some parents would like.
(It was fairly tame as far as sex scenes go, but it was definitely for mature eyes only.)
The female liked it enough she bought After Glow and will see how she enjoys that one.
It is a third-person Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance hybrid. (In our opinion. The story has qualities of both genres.)
One… two… three… go!
