Chelsea's Adventures in Book Blogging...

I've fairly recently become obsessed with reading. This is just me sharing that love with the world. :)


Currently in the (apparently long) process of importing my books from GR.

Tangled - Emma Chase 3.5 stars"Every time you're near me, you smell like... like a bouquet of fucking sunshine with brown sugar on top"And that is how Drew Evans gives a compliment. Not really the strong and silent type I normally love, but I'll take it. The actual story earns a good 3 stars from me. It was definitely enjoyable, nothing earth-shattering. The extra half star is for adding a little humor, a little feminism, and managing not to annoy me. Usually, I like these contemporary romance books in spite of some glaringly annoying something. This one didn't bug me one bit! That counts for something.This book is really pretty unique in a lot of ways. It's written from the guy's point of view, and in first person, but he talks to you as if you're an audience to his life. Present are some of the standard cliches, like references to Kate being like a drug he's addicted to, and the above quote about aroma. However, it's done in a way that seems more real & less melodramatic, so it didn't bother me. And Kate is a badass investment banker, and Drew actually respects her. How refreshing. She's not pining after him, he has to work for it. I'm onto my next conquest, so I'll leave it at that. If you're looking for a unique book in a sea of copycats, pick this lil gem up, you won't be disappointed.
