A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

Lonesome Polecat

on February 12, 2014



A blogger I follow raved about a book and I jumped to request it. The second I hit the button, I knew I’d made a mistake, but alas, NetGalley has no backsies. I’d completely forgotten that this blogger and I don’t have similar tastes. Sure enough, reading this book is Such. A. Slog.

I really miss having reading twins. My most similar friends from paperbackswap and GoodReads barely review any more; Mean Fat Old Bat is just about a perfect fit, but doesn’t review often.

Probably what I really miss is GoodReads. Sniff.

One response to “Lonesome Polecat

  1. I know how you feel, I retired from FB and am in the process of doing the same with GR, what is the obsession with gifs ? I do a book club with people I physically know, but that’s quite different to the did you see what happened there on p.12 stuff, which I miss. Would you be interested in an English ‘readpal’ ?

Miss Bates Reads Romance

“Miss Bates…had never boasted either beauty or cleverness. Her youth had passed without distinction, and her middle of life was devoted to the care of a failing mother, and the endeavour to make a small income go as far as possible. And yet she was a happy woman..." Emma, Jane Austen
