Lists & Memes: Great Books? Duds

The Good, the Bad and the Guacamole (A Taste of Texas Mystery #2)The Good, the Bad and the Guacamole by Rebecca Adler

Book One was lots of fun. It had family, great food, and oh yeah, mystery. This book had all those elements, but it took the focus off the family and put the focus on strangers instead. Less fun for me. I will still look out for #3 next year.

Book one of the series was pretty interesting in concept. What if someone who is always taken hostage by super-villains is injected and becomes a super-hero? Interesting. The romance was so-so, but that wasn’t why I was reading anyhow. This book takes the concept further, but less interesting. The continuing adventure of a bewildered superhero who does not have access to good training.

Could Not Finish.

I can’t remember who recced this SF book of short stories to me.
I opened up to a random story, it was about a guy who won’t be ‘the daddy’ to some other guy’s kid. Well, OK. And the kid complained that none of the other guys would be his daddy either, so he mutilated them. Um. Random guys don’t have to play the role of your daddy, kid?

Next story, a guy is friend-zoned, and the way to cure that is with a gun. Nope.

Next story, a hooker won’t (can’t) pay her drug debts so her pimp raped her sister. Raped-Sister kills Hooker-Sister – but not the man. Because the man’s actions are Sister’s fault.

Good bye, book, not what I’m looking for.
