Another "Meh" List


Do writers always have a story in their head?  Do they always have something they could write about? Even when they have writer’s block, is the story still there?  Under the surface?  Waiting to be written?  These are the questions that fill my head because I know I am “supposed” to write a blog post, but I have nothing to write about.

Terrible Writing - Good Plot

http://www.amazon.com/Prince-Wolves-Grey-Book-ebook/dp/B005983WCQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1419277253&sr=1-1&keywords=prince+of+wolves

This book is so hard to categorize.  I mean, yes, it goes under werewolves, but as far as good, bad or meh…. That’s a whole other issue.  The writing was TERRIBLE!  If it hadn’t been free… AND I hadn’t been in a hurry to find something to read while sitting in a hospital waiting room there is NO way, after reading the sample, I would have clicked “buy.”

Little Red Riding Hood... more than a children's story this time

http://www.amazon.com/Scarlette-Paranormal-Fairy-Davonna-Juroe-ebook/dp/B009PU7TJQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1419277202&sr=1-1&keywords=scarlette

I love finding a book that I’m excited to write about!   This is just such a book!  It has everything I look for in a story—dynamic interesting characters, fascinating and complex plot (almost too complex at one point… but more on that later) and even a great setting.

Glorified Abusive Relationship

http://www.amazon.com/Touch-Honor-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B00BTQ9JQ0/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1419277092&sr=1-1&keywords=touch+of+honor

Could there be any one more naive?  I doubt it.  Honor goes from being freaked out and thinking the new guy is some sort of stalker to dating him in just a couple page turns.  And honestly he fit the stalker part better.
