I think BAM is wickedly funny in her reviews. If you’ve never read her reviews – you simply must give them a try. I can only dream of writing something that deliciously hilarious. While I like the reviews Mrs. Giggles does, BAM is the best. She’s been on a bit of a Lisa Kleypas streak - taking on the queen she is - and the only auto buy Avon author I still have left. It can be argued and I won’t disagree, that other authors are better writers. But for me there is something special and unique about this particular book. BAM blogged about her upcoming reviews and I saw that she was getting ready to tackle non other than *horns trumping in the background* Dreaming of You – the book that defines why I love reading romance. There is just something so magical to me about this book.
But even if BAM trashes it, hates it and wants to stomp it into the ground, then burn it and scatter the ashes, I know I’m going to relish her review.
Which brings me to the title of this blog. When I find out romance readers who haven't read this one yet, I've started hounding them to give it a try.
I’m going to hold up the magic mirror that Miss Betty on Romper Room used to use. Hands up all those who have read this book?
Ah, I see quite a few!
Those who read and didn’t like it keep their hands up.
Aha – I don’t see many hands now.
There are a few readers though, who haven’t read this book who are on my list.
Nicole – I made her get a copy
Cindy – who has a copy but is holding off – but you are on the list
Karen S – just recently added. She has issues with the author and although I don’t know what they are, I’m sure they are interesting *grin*. Karen, even if you never read another Kleypas – you simply must give this one a shot. Were we not right about Eve and Roarke?
If there is anyone else who hasn’t read it, you can let me know and I will add you to the hound list.
For those who have read it – here are a few things that might make you sigh. For those who haven’t – hopefully you will be curious enough to want to know what the heck I’m talking about.
Joyce (boo, hiss)
Dropping the h’s
The house wenches
The fiancé (mama’s boy)
The House party
Sarah’s parents (I think of the little people that artists make out of dried apples when I think of them)
So why am I so nutty about this book? And why do I have a list? Well, if anyone who hasn’t yet, decides to read this book and they enjoy it even half as much as I do because I recommended it, it will give me a glow inside that will warm the cockles of my heart that I’ve been able to share something special.
So how about it? Anyone want to warm my cockles?
(and doesn’t that sound indecent)
