Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

Reading progress update: I've read 68 out of 234 pages.

Wishland - Christina Bertke

It is still very funny-bad.


There are fairies, with matching wings and hair:  pink, blue, purple with red streaks (2 of these). Their skin sparkles.


I am not sure what type of beings the heroine's other subjects are.  I thought they were all fairies but the author has made a point of differentiating this latest batch as fairies.  I do know that her head guard (with whom she has been having vaguely described  sex since the night of her arrival in Wishland) has the special ability to remove objects from the shirt he is wearing when he has twice been described as shirtless in the same paragraph.


The heroine has wished for wine and music and turned the palace into a dance club. That's as far as she's gotten with her mission of restoring happiness to Wishland but then she's only been there two days.


The heroine's best friend (Maggy) has been captured by the villain (Zaltare).  So far Zaltare has retrieved Maggy's clothes from her home on Earth and had vaguely described sex with her twice.  And fed her breakfast.  I think he is about to take her on a tour after they finish the vaguely described sex. But I'm sure he is going to do something villainous soon.
