Oh my stars, for me this was the most hilarious fairy-talish and outlandish romance Jessica Clare managed to come up with so far, and I enjoyed it immensely! *grinning* If you want a Cinderella story, look no further, and you find a kind, naive Southern belle paired with a snotty European royal who has absolutely no social skills. Funny and outrageously entertaining. Recommended.

Ржала как лошадь с этой современной юморной истории про Золушку! А если серьёзно, - отлично, чаруще, романтично и очень смешно, так как ни автор ни герои себя серьёзно не воспринимают. Читайте, если позарез хочется узнать как друг в друга по уши влюбились высокомерный европейский принц и наивная милая красотка с жутким акцентом аамериканского юга.

Hardwired by Meredith Wild (Hacker #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads

Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn’t prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who seems determined to derail her presentation.

Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to.

But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica’s past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she’s fought so hard to create.

Not bad actually. Typical plot akin fifty shades, but the main heroine is gutsy, and he is a hacker for a change. There is a bit of overblown drama as usual, but I'll reserve judgement until I finish this trilogy. Plus it's in Boston, which I find very charming!

Неплохо, хотя сюжет слизан с 50 Оттенков Серого. Главная героиня, слава богу, дверной коврик своим поведением не напоминает, герой - хакер, что само по себе свежо, а сюжет развивается на фоне очаровательного Бостона, хотя я бы чрезмерную драматизацию убрала. Я воздержусь от какого-либо осуждения пока не дочитаю всю трилогию.

 Use by C.D. Reiss (Songs of Perdition #2)


Synopsis from Goodreads

In the end, did I stab him to be free of him? And free to what? Fuck? Snort? Party? Or free to be normal?

It was a very interesting situation, up there on Maundy,” Elliot said.

“Nothing like it in the world. It’s a safe place for people like me.”

“People like you? Can you be more specific?” He ran his finger on the edge of his blotter, and a chill went up my inner thighs.

“People like me means, I don’t know. Fuckers. We fuck because it’s what we do. Bus drivers drive. Accountants account. Policemen police. I’m a fucker. I fuck.”

Oh wow! I can't help but admire Miss Reiss's talent. This serial might be short, but the author manages to use such succinct, sharp words, their impact on the reader is enormous. It's like there is this vast amount of information behind each sentence, and I can't help being compelled and wretched by it all. I want more!

У меня даже нет слов, честно говоря. Мисс Рейсс - просто королева коротких новелл. Она умудряется пропитать маленькие предложения таким количеством информации, что под конец остаётся ощущение, что прочёл полноценную книгу. Я обожаю её чёткие, веские, глубокие диалоги и характеры, которых просто невозможно не полюбить. Вот ведь правда,  краткость - сестра таланта. Блестяще и остро написано, хочу ещё!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
