I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

House of Stone - Vaughn R. Demont Not quite sure about this one. It started out strong - very funny and hot (fae as gay porn star...), but somehow lost the drive over the next 200 pages. I am not even sure why I lost all interest in the story, but it happened. It was not a overall bad read, it just didn't hit me in the right way and was one of the few books I felt just glad to have finished.A few things I found annoying: In this world the fae live among humans, and they have difficulties to procreate - not very original, but ok. But then it is said, that the fae widely encourage homosexuality meanwhile they try to have more offspring. That doesn't make ANY sense. First of all: how do you encourage homosexuality??? Secondly: why should a people which already has problems procreating do it? I didn't like the underlying theory that homosexuality is something to encourage or discourage. Behaviour ok, but preference?? Really? And why?And then if the fae find it preferable and nearly everybody is homosexual, then why lie about it all the time and keep it as a dirty secret? If everybody does it?And the last nail in the coffin: It is ok for the noble fae to have homosexual sex with his manservant, but only if the noble is the top - as if your sexual preference must be in line with your social standing. A really strange logic.
