Book Clever

Mostly just my books, but also some reviews (they might contain spoilers, they're imported from GR and don't parse).

I'm an avid reader of all types, but be warned that I mostly enjoy: horror, sci-fi, fantasy, romances and M/M erotica.

The Poodle Apocalypse

The Poodle Apocalypse - John Inman Perhaps I'd give it a 1.5, because I neither liked nor disliked it. It was fairly evenly in-between, and if it'd had more funny moments I might have upped it to a 2, maybe 2.5.

I wasn't fond of the writing style (or the first person narrative), which always makes it a lot harder for me to get into books. Even though it was only 60-some pages long, I found myself skimming through (And perhaps because it was only 60-some pages was the only reason I finished it).
It had some moderately funny moments (none to laugh out loud, but enough to make me smile a couple of times, but nothing like what I expected from the title and cover), I liked the idea of the story behind it but the ending ruined it for me, and the characters I didn't really care much for (also part of why I skimmed through). Just when I was starting to care a little about the characters, the story was ending/ended.
Lovely cover, though.

It was, in brief, quiet a letdown and one of those "Don't judge a book by its cover" moments.
