I was really exhausted this morning after working all night and well into the day. So, when I crawled into bed at 2PM, I grabbed my reader to do a bit of what I call my “selfish” reading. Usually PNR, it allows me to relax, have a cup of decaf tea, and prepare myself for sleep.
Flipping through my PNR shelf, I came across The Bobcat’s Tale” by Georgette St. Clair. Now you have to realize, that shelf is all books that I have read in the past and enjoyed as a little self indulgence. Pulling it up, my brain went “Ah-HA!” You see, I knew I had read something of hers before and had really liked it. But since her readers have mostly become the BDSM crowd, I haven’t read anything by her lately. Ugh. Shiver. Anyway! I read longer than I should have this afternoon, then didn’t wake till 1AM, sigh. But it was worth it. If you have self confidence issues, pick this one up. If you like a good BBW PNR, pick this up. Just pick it up, will ya? This isn’t brain surgery, but it is certainly relaxing, and fun to boot. With a bit of a mystery tossed in as well.
I just finished “The Bobcat’s Tale” by Georgette St. Clair. I had read it quite some time ago, and ran across it again while I was organizing my shelves. The book really touched a very hurt part of me. Like the main character, Lainey, I had a very rough family life, very similar to hers. I always heard “fat, stupid and lazy!” Pretty much like Lainey. Well, I may have had curves, but I was far from stupid, though I admit to being somewhat lazy 😉
So often we are bullied into being something we are not, when what we are is perfectly fine, just as it is. I really admire Ms. St. Clair for writing a book which helped me understand that, just because I am not perfect in someone else’s eyes, I can be perfectly who I am!
