Book 12 and Happy New Year 2014!

I'm sorry I'm late. I just don't know why I'm so spaced out. I forgot it's Friday and that I need to put a post up. I also forgot to do the journal entry for this book so I pulled out an ATC to sort of match the storyline. I'm cheating again. Oh, well.:)

I had fun doing this "art reviews" every month this year even though I fell off the wagon the last couple of months. Thanks Darcy for making this a fun experiment. :)

The twelfth book for The Artful Readers Club is
by Nicole Grotepas

My review:
4*
Retta seemed like every other protagonist in this kind of genre. A teenager in her last year of school who was raised by one parent alone so she had some issues because of her Mom’s death. Of course she found a hot guy to swoon over and fall in love with within a heartbeat. I did like that she openly took a stand against the general beliefs even though it was triggered by her falling in love with an android.

Hemingway was a total hotty at the beginning but then he became a total jerk. I understood why he broke up with Retta and I was feeling it but then after her attack I thought he came to his senses and they’d go back together. That’s what Retta thought, too, but he was kissing her one second and then the next telling her that being with an android was easier for him. I so wished right then Retta would slap him.

I was a little confused about the running away thing and I had an issue with the weird marriage ceremony because it kind of felt like the author had to take the safe road with the whole “waiting until marriage” thing. But all in all it was a uniquely written story and I enjoyed reading it even though the “revolution” was over pretty quickly and everyone was happy.

Some random news:
  • I am officially a Reiki Master and Teacher
  • I'm going to London in January :) for 4 days only
  • I have a new crystal - Fluorite octahedron 
  • I ordered some more crystals from UK
Have a FABULOUS New Year 2014!!!

Tea Party for Tracey

http://society6.com/MayNatasha/All-it-Takes-is-Love_Mug#27=199
Today we, at Paint Party Friday, are having a surprise virtual tea party for Tracey Fletcher King. :)

I've been visiting her blog ever since I first found her through PPF. She is an incredible artist and her posts always make me laugh.

Tracey is a teacup lover but I'm more of a mug person myself. :) So, I ordered a mug at Society6 for my daily Zen Chai tea consumption with my own artwork printed on it. I'm in love with it!

To you Tracey, I'm sending lots of good energy to battle your demons and I'm wishing for your quick recovery.

And some old stuff that I thought I'd share with you again because it goes with the theme of the party. :)
