Could it be nepotism? 83!

Mrs. G gave me an 83!

Mrs. Giggles's review of Futurelove

For those who think 83 isn't great shakes: go to Mrs. G's site and you'll see how rare the higher numbers are--although she's been handing out more 80-90s lately. She's mellowing in her old age, perhaps?

I really didn't think Futurelover was her sort of story, and I wonder if she likes it in part because I announced far and wide (and to her) that she gave me the idea.

and damn straight--the story Futurelove was inspired by her virginal hero passage in this rant. How could anyone NOT read that passage about the sexually clueless hero and not get inspired? I get a fit of the giggles every time I read that selection from her Very Bad Romance Novel.

Anyway. It kills me that my story got a grade almost as good as Bone Deep, which is my favorite book of the last couple of months (and I've already read a lot of books lately. Boys' time off = Kate's reading time).

For what it's worth, Somebody Wonderful** got a 72 from Mrs. G, which again, is not bad. She gives a lot of my favorite writers--like Mary Balogh-- crummy numbers. Like any rabid fangirl who's touched by a story, I sometimes consider bitch-slapping people who are rude about it. (Or maybe give them The Cut Direct, since we're talking regency era stuff). But I don't foam at the mouth about Mrs. G. She's too damned funny when she really rips into a book or a genre or anything else.


** notice I don't link to her review for that book? Here. Um. Look at these reviews instead.
