First, The Honest Toddler. I wanted to love this, I did. I love @HonestToddler on Twitter. I like humor. I typically enjoy parenting memoirs. So why didn't I? Because an entire book of it is just overwhelming. I imagine that a lot of people are going to find this incredibly funny, and the book will do well, but I will not be part of that group.
The Honest Toddler: A Child's Guide to Parenting will be published on May 7, 2013. My copy provided by NetGalley.
The second, Midnight Secrets by Ella Grace. Even my romance loving heart couldn't take the writing in this one. 70 pages of backstory before the real story begins, lots of clunky foreshadowing and repetition, but it doesn't really go anywhere (at least to the point where I stopped.) Our hero and heroine had a great relationship in those 70 pages, but once we got to current day it was all badly written sexual tension, and eh, I'd rather read someone who does it well. But, to be completely honest, I may go back to this one. If it were a paper copy I'd have skipped the middle and read the last few chapters to see how the suspense portions end, but that's tricky in an ebook. I wouldn't mind knowing how the suspense plays out, but not enough to keep reading a boring book.
Midnight Secrets: The Wildefire Series by Ella Grace will be published on April 30, 2013. My copy provided by NetGalley.
