Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

Second Star (Star Svensdotter, Book 1)

Second Star - Dana Stabenow I'm not sure why I even bothered finishing this book, except that it's short and I wanted to see space aliens. There's some good ideas in here-- I love space stations and living in space and exciting space things!-- but there are some real clunkers, too. The romance! Was so terrible. The love interest did SUPER CREEPY THINGS, stalker things, and everybody was just like "lol isn't that cute." WHAT. I'd try one of the author's other series (she does mysteries, too), but no way am I reading another book in THIS series.(This review was originally posted on Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog.)
