Monday Suggestions 09/23

I've been wanting to do this Monday Suggestions thing for a while now and finally carved out some time to get down to business! Each Monday I'd like to suggest one book that you should read, one book that's coming out soon to get excited about, and one show to watch. 

I hope you enjoy today's suggestions! If you have any of your own, leave a comment!

Don't let the name of this book throw you off. Do what I did and read the sample that Amazon and/or Barnes & Noble offer with most books. I purchased this Molly Harper book for my Kindle after reading most of the first chapter from the sample. 

Let me level with you...I normally don't read werewolf books. Nothing against them, I just don't like books that are about nothing but the conflicts and journeys of the furry creatures. However, How to Flirt had so much more meat to it than just being a werewolf tale. (I wanted to say "tail.")

Northern Exposure Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.

For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.

If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . .

Three reasons I dug this book
1. Mo was entertaining as hell. It's a first person POV so you get all of the fun internal dialogue from her. One of my favorite quotes from her was the first time she really interacts with Cooper: "Well, that cinched it. He was an asshole. I was definitely going to sleep with him." She isn't blind to his moody personality or his jackassary. She doesn't make excuses for him or pretend he's a saint. She also doesn't deny she wants to jump his bones.

2. Dear goodness, I love the secondary characters in this book. From the patrons at the diner to the overbearing hippie mother, there's a myriad of characters throughout the book that you just can't help but love. It makes almost every seen even more entertaining.

3. It's a mystery with a supernatural twist plus a love story! It's an easy read that has a sequel (which I'm currently reading) so you can keep on enjoying all the characters. Fun fact: The sequel doesn't follow Mo anymore BUT it follows someone close to her so she's still in it a lot! 


I was a beta reader and LET ME TELL YOU, you'll love it. Author C. Elizabeth Vescio is releasing one teaser picture a day until the first! To make sure you see each go here

If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out Elegantly Wasted (Book 1 of the Wasted Series) and its site here. Also, check out our site for more posts relating to EW and the series.

Now for yesterday's teaser picture! (For today's check out the Facebook later on tonight!)

I promise I'll branch out and stop suggesting to you (and everyone you know) watch Parks and Recreation. But, really. Go watch it. 

Season 6 premieres Thursday and IT WILL BE EPIC!

Season 1 - 3 are on Netflix. Season 1 is okay but it doesn't start getting amazing (in my mind) until 2, especially when Adam Scott and Rob Lowe join the cast!

Go watch it. Now.
