Captive Prince (Captive Prince #1) by C.S. Pacat * Crappiest Book of the year award

Oh my God. It’s been a while since I disgustedly threw a book out the window!

What the hell did I just read? I am used to smutty novels and BDSM is always in the books in the form of Fifty Shades or The Beauty’s Punishment but this book is a whole new level.
Slavery isn’t sexy. Corporal punishment isn’t sexy. Rape isn’t sexy, and it certainly isn’t entertainment. This book is utterly disgusting.
The story plot:
The main story goes like this: Damen is a prince and the heir to the throne of Akielos. But when the king dies, Damen is captured and bundled off to Vere, disguised as a slave, while his half brother takes the throne. Vere is an enemy to Akielos and Damen must continue pretending to be a slave if he wishes to live.

Enter Prince Laurent – heir to Vere and a pampered, spoiled and vindictive brat who becomes Damen’s new master. Laurent is extremely unlikable at first, but Pacat manages to successfully grow him into a well-rounded and eventually likable character.

Well, who needs plot anyways…

Throttle * Joe Hill & Stephen King

In the Stephen King Universe, there are a few stories, like In the tall grass which has both him and his son, Joe Hill, as co-authors.

“They rode west from the slaughter, through the painted desert, and did not stop until they were a hundred miles away.”

Motorcycle-Truck-crash-head-onSo begins Throttle‘s terrifying odyssey down desolate Route 6, a long stretch of road in Nevada’s empty desert. Vince, his son Race, and his pack of bikers, The Tribe, are on the run, but it’s not long before the group is chased by something far more frightening and relentless than the memory of their own crimes.

AFRAID OF HEIGHTS?

Being afraid of height (whether during a plane trip or climbing a mountain) is a serious problem that affects many persons and can have severe if not fatal repercussions on the respective person. The sickness is provoked by the lack of oxygen.

The easiest manifestation of height sickness can appear at altitudes of 2000 meters and it will manifest itself through headaches, dizziness, and incapability of movement. These symptoms will disappear in a few days if you continue staying at that height.
