My Thoughts:

I read this first two books of the series a few weeks ago and decided to put it in one Review together because what I have to say fits for both of them. First of all, I like the Story  and the Topic of this Series. Also I like the main Character M.J. Holiday and I love her sense of humour. That’s right up my Alley. It made me laugh out loud a few times (and my bf stare at me). There are more things in the books that I like. I also like M.J.’s cute gay best friend with all his problems and crushes and stuff and I ADORE  her feathery little friend. If this parrot would really exist I would be the first to adopt him, even tho he can make you feel ashamed really badly.

There is just one thing I wasn’t really sure if this was a good or a bad thing. There is this romancy little sidestory but it’s never really working out.. I had a few moments while reading the books when I thought “Gosh, make out at last, dammit!” :D. Maybe I’m just to used to it that main characters always get the man/woman of her desire.

All in all I really enjoyed the Books and am looking forward to read the next ones in the Series.

Cover: The Covers look nice, and the books held what the Covers promised.
