I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Captured by Moonlight

Captured by Moonlight - Claire  Wilson The story itself seemed just alright. It didn't flow well and it didn't captivate. The writing, on the other hand, was atrocious. There was hardly any use of paragraphs and punctuation was misused through out it all. And the author loved using ... for everything. The writing just flat out drove me nuts. I wanted to take a red pen to it and correct the grammar, the punctuation and the sentence structure. It felt like a very rough first draft, not a final product.

I had a hard time with this, even harder time thinking that I wasted my money on this. I think if this had been written better or even edited, it could have made a decent story. Instead it turned into a mediocre novel that was just plain hard to read.
