I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bear with me as I still continue to recover.

Rating: 3/5 stars
Love Struck by Melissa Marr is a short eBook that, at least to me, reads like a long introduction to what should be an actual book. Murrin, a selchie (or fey creature who could turn into a seal and live in the ocean) has fallen in love with Alana, and wanted to try his hand at actually dating her like a proper mortal as opposed to trapping her into magically loving her by using his Other-Skin, which would bind them together if she touched it. Except, she is more or less tricked into touching his Other-Skin by another selchie, and then as Murrin and Alana grow closer, she's not sure if her feelings for him are real or a result of the fey magic. And... that's about all that happens. Murrin spends the story trying to prove his actual love and Alana tries to reconcile her feelings. Really, there's nothing special with this one, but it isn't a bad read. Just a quick short tale about a girl and the selchie who loves her, and what that ends up meaning to both of them.It just seemed like this is something that could be fleshed out into a more involved story if it were longer.
