Peek Inside a Book - My Lady's Choosing

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.


This week I'm reading: My Lady's Choosing: An Interactive Romance Novel by Kitty Curran & Larissa Zageris


It Begins: "Move that leg, girl!" the dowager Lady Craven hisses as she prods you with her cane.

On Page 56 (I went with page 57 this week): Seriously, cripes.

Do you try to defeat the evil spy lady? If so, turn to page 84.

Or do you  hold back? Ollie, unlike you, is a trained spy, and he can probably handle himself. If so, turn to page 119.

Verdict: I'm having so much fun reading this book!

Review: Not as good as The Martian, but a fun science fiction story. I like that it's more science based and seems more realistic than a lot of other SciFi I've tried.

This week I'm reading: Artemisby Andy Weir



It Begins: I bounded over the gray, dusty terrain toward the huge dome of Conrad Bubble. Its airlock, ringed with red lights, stood distressingly far away.

On Page 56: I smacked him on the back of the head and he jerked away from the microscope. He smiled like a child seeing a beloved aunt. "Oh! Hi, Jazz! What's up?"

Verdict: So far I'm enjoying the game!

Date Started: June 20
Date Finished: July 2
Stars: 3 of 5
Review: I liked this a bit better than the 1st book in the series, but again there are a lot of stereotypes in play.  Also the whole subplot of the who's setting them up and screwing with things, wasn't necessary and it would have just worked as a who's the daddy plot line.
