So time to upload a few book reviews. Just moved to a bigger apartment and having a puppy means time to read and no time to read. but more time to read than to be online! :)
First is The Vagina Monologues - Eve Ensler
Buy as paperback here
I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues...At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one's ever asked them before.
So I dont really know how to fairly put the review of this book because the first part is introduction and the "play" start at page 38... The first part is kind of boring and more or less sums up what is coming but fine, I can accept that.
The next 150 ish pages is really great and would be 5 starts right away because how mind opening they are and how powerful they are. The strength of the whole book is here.
After that we have about 50 ish pages of what people think about the book, V-days history, than another V-day history and it all gets boring and feels like it is more "filling" to make the book thinker but it is also boring and this part makes the book loosen stars.
I absolutely think there should be information about V-day and the movement but it is to much.

Ever wondered about the personalities behind your favorite books? Victoria Danann's new podcast with Riley J. Ford has an incredible lineup of authors booked through the spring. No question is out of bounds. Check it out!
New York Times bestselling author of eighteen romances including paranormal, scifi, fantasy, contemporary, and teen. Victoria's Knights of Black Swan series won BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE SERIES and PARANORMAL ROMANCE NOVEL OF THE YEAR the past FOUR YEARS IN A ROW. This past year two of her series took the top two places and two of her books took first and second place Paranormal Romance of the Year category. - Reviewers Choice Awards, The Paranormal Romance Guild.
Her paranormal romances come with uniquely fresh perspectives on "imaginary" creatures, characters, and themes. She adds a dash of scifi, a flourish of fantasy, enough humor to make you laugh out loud, and, occasionally, enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. Her heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, werewolves, hybrids, psychics, or past life therapists. Her heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners... usually.
The rich characterizations come from being a lifelong student of behavior, casually, and a serious student of behavior academically. She also studied comparative religion, myths, and Dark Ages history.
Victoria lives in The Woodlands, Texas with her husband and a very smart, mostly black German Shepherd dog.
