kdf_333's blog

yeah maybe one day i'll write enough book reviews for a blog but not now.


I use my Shelafri account(http://www.shelfari.com/kdf_333) more for keeping track of the books i've read or want to read. i use Goodreads ( https://www.goodreads.com/kdf_333) more for social networking because a lot of my coworkers use it. I just found out about this site and decided to give it a whirl.


I am an average book loving gal. i love to read fiction. I love mysteries, romance, certain sci-fi, and certain YA. I work at my public library (since 2006) doing a variety of things. I also work at a dress store part time to pay for my addiction of clothes & accessories. From middle school to my first year in college i worked in my school libraries. i only got paid in college. i have to yearly purge my collection of books and get rid of the ones i know i will not read. i keep most of my nonfiction Christian growth books or biographies, and reference material. i also keep my trivia books or personality quiz type books.


that is all for now.

Dancing at Midnight

Dancing at Midnight - Julia Quinn this book said the man, lord john had seen the horrors of war and was injured in body and soul. when he had the flashback about the war i was not expecting child rape. and i was not expecting the graphic details of said rape to be repeated in the book 2 more times after that in his nightmares. THAT MADE ME MAD.
i was even more mad since Quinn penned a note in the book talking about it and her process of writing it since it is one of her earliest works. i was mad she didn't put a warning in her note. also i fail to see how a MAN who witnesses a child rape would so blame himself for not preventing said rape that he fears he will become a rapist or something like that. there are plenty of horrors about war. ones that could have affected him more directly than this and scarred his soul more so. i am mad she chose rape. i mad she chose to write about it in detail. i am mad it was a child. and i am mad it was repeated. so many other horrors of war that give soldiers PTSD. why in a romance novel would you choose rape?

other than that it was a typical Quinn funny romance. you can definitely tell it is one of her earlier works though.
