Women's WorkWomen’s Work by Kari Aguila

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think I heard about this through First-Reads on GoodReads. Usually, the books offered on First-Reads are hard, often signed copies. I managed to pick up the Kindle version for $3.99. It seemed like it would be a marvelous book.

It was. This is a book I think everyone should read. There is a lot of depth of characters and possible histories. Yes, it is dystopian in nature: what if womyn had their fill of the way men treated them? Is there a point where it all might break into, say, even war? I don’t know. I’ve met and even been angry with the male of our species. I don’t know if I would want to kill anyone, though.

But let’s suppose that happened and the womyn took over? Here is possibly an extreme case of what could happen when the world settled down again. What would happen with families? Could they even exist if this happened? So many questions are answered in this wonderfully written fiction.

As I mentioned before, this is a cautionary tale that we all need to look at. Not just for what good could finally happen for ‘the weaker sex’ but how ages of resentment could result in far more trust issues than any of us have now. Do we want to bring the males down to where they’ve put us? Wouldn’t it be better to start accepting people as people with no classifications of lower, weaker, etc. Because if we can’t get males to join in the fight against inequalities they are as likely to fail as the lessors.

This review presents mostly questions because, though the book is fiction, it makes the reader think. Could this happen? How can we prevent it and still make a better society for everyone in the world?

Please, if you get the chance, pick up a copy.

Oh, and quickly, before I forget: I loved the characters and the way the story is told. If the scene was now it was present tense, if past the author used past tense. At first I found that a little hard to get used to, yet as I read it made perfect sense for all that happens in this book. Thank you, Kari Aguila, for a wonderful read!

Winter Court: A Paranormal Romance (Tarot Witches Book 3)Winter Court: A Paranormal Romance by S.M. Reine

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was not my favorite story of this series. Although I liked the story line and the goal of the main characters. I don’t want to give any spoilers so I won’t say much more about the goal. Oh, if you don’t like erotic scenes this may not be for you. I didn’t mind them so much as I minded the main character. I just could never warm up to her. I didn’t feel a fem strength. Instead, I felt a fifties, Mad Men or the like. This poor glorified secretary had reached the top and wasn’t about to let it go. Add to that her determination not to have sex that echoed the old virgin themes and I just couldn’t get into her. Maybe you will feel different about her.

But apart from that main character, I liked everyone else, good guys or bad. I loved meeting up with old friends from Sara’s past works in this series. I love the tarot aspect this series has and can’t wait to see more.

Remember this is from the most prolific writer. I think this series of 3 books so far could be read without the background of the whole consecutive series(es?). It all starts with Seasons of the Moon series. To find more look SM Reine on GoodReads or on her website: www.smreine.com

Oh, I started this one day before NaNoWriMo. That distraction may play a part in how I felt about this book. My brain was occupied with putting words out not bringing them in. So don’t take my word for it. Try for yourself if you are an adult.
