PDF or EBOOK (Familiar Stranger) Ò Michele Hauf

Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom dUse since I joined Goodreads I ve only had too it with two other books one of which was Fifty Shades of Grey but I really couldn t slog through Familiar Stranger any longer and I HATE not finishing a bookI m Celtic Plant Magic: A Workbook for Alchemical Sex Rituals disappointed mostly in myself because when I read Michele Hauf s bio blurb she sounded like such an awesome person and I really thought I was going to love her book I m not sure why Iidn t It s rated uite highly on here so perhaps the fault is with me rather than the bookThere were a couple things I found annoying and istracting Firstly I m guessing that Ms Hauf Hasn T Spent Too hasn t spent too time around English people I ve lived most of my life 23 out of 29 years either in London or just outside it and we on t talk like the characters in this book Ms Hauf seems obsessed with the words snog shag and arse as well as words Southern African Literature: An Introduction derived from these and uses them on what feels like every other page While these are words that Brits use some than others weon t use them exclusively past the age of 13 or 14 Even the least educated of us have a extensive vocabulary than that I know it probably sounds like nitpicking and maybe it is but it was annoyingly monotonous to the point that I was mentally blocking out any conversation between hero and heroine I expect novels and particularly genres like paranormal romance to be vibrant things full of vocabulary that s both colourful and extensive Ms Hauf may have managed the colourful at least to the eyes of those who weren t born in London but somehow the repetitiveness of the word choices made parts of the book "Read Less Like A "less like a and like a Happy Alchemy: On the Pleasures of Music and the Theatre droning educational textI realise that this is something that not all readers particularly American readers will be bothered by Plenty of peopleon t read a book for its sparkling prose they read it for the story The story itself was fine I have no real positive or negative comments about it I Plowshares Pork Barrels: The Political Economy of Agriculture (Independent Studies in Political Economy) did like the idea of the parallel realms and two opposing factions hunting otherworldly creatures and if I enjoyed this book I Gem is Mine but Heart is Yours d probably have wanted to read about P Cell and the CadreThe characters were okay if you can get past the annoying language issues But I sensed no real emotional bond between them I couldn t understand why they were attracted to each other probably because I wasn t attracted to either of them They felt flat to me Mersey had personality than Jack IMO but neither of them had much to speak ofSo I guess this book just isn t for me Ion t mean to massacre it totally although I know that s how this review reads sorry because it s not awful Believe me I ve read far worse But the lack of any emotional bond would have made me rate it 3 star and the irritating obsession with those few words pushed it into 2 star it 3 star and the irritating obsession with those few words pushed it into 2 star for me Read these awhile ago Comments and review to follow You can find me over on Facebook at My Open Book at the Dragonfly Come over and say hello Eh good scene or two But American Africans in Ghana Black Expatriates and the Civil Rights Era The John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture don t waste your time.

Familiar StrangerThis was about a woman who is a familiar and can turn into a black cat The guy is a P Cell member they track emons The My Hero Academia demons are using him for a portal to enter earth but heoes not realise it The familiar can see that this is occurring and tries to help him fight the emons Story and idea good Plot was in there somewhere but to many side tracks Way to much slang took away form the story She was raised fairly cloistered and he was in the secret service They talked teenage trash Didn t sound believable and he was way too much ueen of Denial for me I ve read and enjoyed many of her books this and enjoyed many of her books this just not a best effort Well I have to say this wasn t one of Michelle Hauf s best books but it was okay and id keep my interest to get me to the end I like this authors style of writing and as usual it was clear to the point Diamond in the Dark descriptive and uite sweet in places There was some action and intrigue and a nice little romance going alongside but for me it just lacked something that I can t uite put my finger on and henceidn t have a WOW factor I also felt the ending seemed a bit rushed and suddenly crept up on you It s not a book I would read again but it was worth reading and would give paranormal romance fans a nice filler if you are not sure what to read next My rating for this book probably says about me right now than it Herbal Alchemy does about the book itself but I found myself nit picking everything as I read I keep picking up romances only to be reminded that I m not really into romance any Ion t buy the explosive immediate relationship seriously you run into a man holding a big fking gun in a The Devil’s Historians How Modern Extremists Abuse the Medieval Past dark abandoned warehouse and your first thought is to KISS him and the conflict between them seemed manufactured and far fetched I just couldn t suspend myisbelief enough to get into this one to the level I would have needed to in order to give it a higher score I finished it but I must admit I skimmed the last few chapters and I was glad when I turned the last page I loved this book It was fantastic and The African American Odyssey Volume 2 delved into so many excellent otherworldly things that I wish there was going to be another Mersey and Jack story Although this is the first book in the Dark Enchanments series which spans four books by fourifferent authorsThis was a fantastic start into the mysterious world of the Cadre And once you get to the end of the book you realise just how perfect this title is Perfect and clever Both Mersey and Jack gotta love a hero called Jack I know I o were very

Vourite paranormal writers however something just idn t gel for me with this oneI think My Major Gripe Is The major gripe is the that its set in England and the author has tried to use English slang such as snogging and shagging which is majorly off putting It immediately made me Dare for More dislike the heroDidn t particularly warm to either character this was very much from Jack s POV and I think I much rather it have been from Mersey the heroine s because as it stands I just idn t feel herThe plot is this book s strongest point didn t feel herThe plot is this book s strongest point liked the story and really liked the paranormal world set up here with the two rival groups ealing with the paranormal one killing indiscriminately the other capturing and interrogating I liked the set up too of the lovers being from rival groups Wasn t too convinced by the romance It was very sudden and just because Mersey s mum had Boku no Hero Academia dj - Osananajimi ga Sugoku Yakkai na Kosei ni Kakatteru decided he was going to be heraughter s mate way back when wasn t enough for me I think again the problem stems from us not seeing enough of Mersey s POVThis is a nice uick read with an engaging story but ultimately let A Gypsy Promise down by the characters and language He witnessed the extraordinary again This time Jack Harris "Was An Agent With "an agent with in England and the monster Imprisoned with the Alien Rohilian Warrior demonevil had just sucked the living heart out of his partner the partner Jack thought he was in love with The anger within Jack made him a perfect agent for the P Cell a special super secret group within MI5 that killed the Masterplots II demons or the OEs otherworldly entities He wanted revenge for his partner carrying the guilt that he couldn t save her and the guilt from his childhood when he made a child s wish Mersey Bane is a familiar with the uncanny ability to shift into a black cat She African American History Black History Month Book 1 d been trained from little to be a capture specialist she traps theemons for later return to the African Literature and Social Change dark realm or for permanent storage Crossing paths with Jack while he s on a hunt is far too much of a coincidence From the moment Mersey sets eyes on him she has the strongest urge to kiss him And much to Jack s surprise sheoes But they work for rival groups Mersey for the Cadre that captures the The Alchemy of Yoga demons and Jack for P Cell thatestroys them Yet they have a connection to one another that goes back to when Mersey was still in the womb and Jack had been a wide eyed brave little boyThis is my very first Nocturne and my first in the paranormal genre It took me a bit to get into this book until I realized that the teeny tiny print was my hold up and I reached for the 15 readers Then the story took hold and I was introduced to the world of Michael Maier's Atalanta Fugiens: Sources of an Alchemical Book of Emblems dem Ion t know why I couldn t warm to this book It has so many of the elements that I like urban fantasy theme a setting that I enjoy London a tortured hero a warm and affectionate heroine with her own secrets but they just never came together for me I got to page 120 and then put it Aliens Abroad down for a week only to come back and skim read the next hundred pages I feel bad aboutoing this beca.
