Married By Morning by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So although a fair bit, it isn’t usual that I spend a chunk of time reading a book unless I really like the book. I really enjoyed this book.
Leo and Cat or Marks as he calls her chemistry is simply out of this world. I have to admit I had a think for the will they or won’t they-bickering type of relationship. I have a bit of experience with those myself haha.
I could completely understand Cat’s hesitation to accept someone into her life. She has a dark past and I think Ms. Kleypas handled it well. It didn’t seem to rushed.
Leo…he’s a good hero. I vastly preferred him as a hero to Harry though I am really fond of Harry’s name.
The epilogue? Perfect. I can’t wait to read Bea’s story though I’m sad I won’t have any more adventures with the Hathaways. I’ve become quite fond of them.

Tempt Me at Twilight by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So this book started out really interesting. Usually the hero and the heroine get together a little later than Harry and Poppy did but they showed interest within the first chapter.
Harry is…I mean I understand his feeling in this book but I really don’t like his methods I mean I don’t like the way he essentially ruined all of Poppy’s chances. He sent the letter to Michael’s father and basically cornered her into marriage by kissing her outside on the balcony and having everyone see them. I am glad with the way Poppy and her family reacted but lbr a marriage made under false pretenses is doomed to fail and I’m sure if the book wasn’t a romance it would have fell apart in another genre. So while I enjoyed this book I can’t really get behind their relationship because of how it started.
The epilogue though? I am so looking forward to it and I’m debating whether to start the next book now or wait. I don’t know yet. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

I really enjoyed this book. But I couldn’t really enjoyed because of how their relationship started. It’s just too much for me and if I were in Poppy’s shoes I think I would be really resentful. So yeah this is a good book but I think a tad bit unrealistic. But still a nice book.
Well early this morning I finished working on a short story. It’s my first one that is self contained. I started a few weeks ago but then I fell into a funk so it got set on the backburner. But it is done! I’m going to have some people look over it before I even think about submitting it.
And while I’m talking about submitting, I’ve sent out a few of my poems to a literary magazine. This is the first time I’ve done this since I was like a teen and that whole deal was a vanity press though I didn’t realize it until like way later. I still wish I had a copy of that particular poem.
But today I have been productive. Of course my word count isn’t as high as it was last year but it’s still pretty good for someone that hasn’t been really focusing on writing like they should!
I ordered a few books this month and the first of them have arrived!
I have a character who I can’t quite get a hold on. When I first wrote her she was a bit haughty and vain, but then that morphed into naive and kind when compared to her younger sister who is…you know actually haughty and vain. Then as she aged she grew into the sort of weary mother type. I wrote her today and she seems to be world weary or something.
Basically compared to my other characters especially said character’s sister, this one seems to change every time I write her. I just cannot get a hold on her personality. I don’t know what I want her to be like. She seems to change in every situation. Is that a good thing? Idk it’s really frustrating to me. She’s more of a supporting character in others’ stories but if I did focus on her what would she be like?
But at least I’ve been writing if only for a bit. I keep bouncing between projects and rereading over my old work.
