Sarah's Library

I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Tucker's Claim (Hell's Eight, #3) by Sarah McCarty

Tucker's Claim - Sarah McCarty

8/2 - Tucker's Claim is just not clicking for me like Caine's Reckoning and Sam's Creed did. I don't like the language Sally Mae uses, ostensibly because she's a Quaker. I have no idea how Quaker's talk now, let alone 150 years ago, but I can't stand the constant thys, thees, and thous. It's really annoying and distracting from the flow of the narrative, especially during the sex scenes. I don't if I'll DNF this or not. I'm about to go overseas and I'm not sure I want to sacrifice good book space for mediocre books, plus it'll be due back while I'm away and I know it's not worth risking a fine if I can't renew it till I get back.


Reading a few of the low star reviews I'm seeing a theme and it looks to only get worse with sex toy anachronisms. I find it exceedingly hard to believe that sex toys were a big thing in the 1860s wild west or, that an uninitiated Quaker woman would be fine and dandy about them being introduced on her first night with a man other than her husband. To be continued...


10/2 - Read another 30 pages and I just couldn't be bothered with Sally Mae's language any longer.  DNF on page 60.
