Dear Mr Pop Star by Derek & Dave Philpott @DerekPhilpott #BlogTour #BookReview #Funny

I am super happy to bring you this little gem of a read, all of those niggling questions that you’ve always wanted to ask but were scared to, well Dave and Derek have you covered!

Thanks to Dave for getting in touch and asking me to read this little corker!

🌟🌟🌟🌟.5 Brilliantly Funny Stars

DlUMrf2W0AEJ6PFFor nearly 10 years, ‘Team Philpott’, as their followers fondly refer to them, have been on a quite bonkers crusade, writing good old-fashioned letters to pop and rock stars (sometimes even sent to their home addresses with prior consent!), either picking up on genuine ambiguities within their lyrics or often deliberately misunderstanding them for comedic effect.

The letters are eminently publishable in their own right, mixing sharp wit, confusion, and unarguable logic in relation to questioning the offending chart hits under scrutiny.

What makes this project especially deserving of attention, however, is that it has achieved a feat never before attempted or probably even thought of. With the missives online for all to see on what was becoming a hugely popular website, the artists quite unexpectedly started to reply, writing back in just as witty and articulate a fashion, politely pointing out exactly where the original letter went wrong…or right.

Also, crucially, nearly all of the responses were procured via ”the back door of the industry”, via roadies, mutual fans, cousins of bass players, and even other famous participants telling the artists directly of the Philpotts’ written pressing inquiries. This marvellous online community, which stretched as far afield as Europe, Canada, Japan, the U.S.A, Australia and Stoke, even cultivated and organically evolved the whole surreal venture by offering up willing stars that the authors would probably not have thought of corresponding with themselves, establishing contact through personal connections.

‘Dear Mr. Popstar’’ proudly features nearly 100 of the best letters and responses from famous and legendary names spanning the whole pop and rock spectrum, all relishing their involvement and revealing their own, in many cases, hitherto unknown humorous sides within what could well be the most interactive dialogue compiled between music stars and their audience ever undertaken. Of course, it is not always possible to reach certain targets, hence many unanswered observations are also included, as they were considered too amusing not to be.

Those to be saluted for their great sportsmanship are:- Deep Purple, Dr. from Dr. and The Medics, Nik Kershaw, Judas Priest, Starship, Tears For Fears, The Eurythmics, Wreckless Eric, Smokie, The Strawbs, The Belle Stars, Van Der Graaf Generator, Martha and the Muffins, Thunder, Squeeze, Dean Friedman, Fairground Attraction, The Ruts, Neil Innes from The Bonzo Dog Band, DEVO, Melanie, Alannah Myles, Ian Gillan, Was Not Was, Republica, Then Jerico, Dr. Hook, Toploader, Cutting Crew, Lindisfarne, Spinal Tap, Mott The Hoople, Fuzzbox, Men Without Hats, China Crisis, Mental As Anything, David MacIver and Rupert Hine (Quantum Jump), Timbuk 3, The Rezillos, Saxon, John Otway, The Human League, Chesney and Chip Hawkes, Tenpole Tudor, Shakatak, Katrina and the Waves, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Heaven 17, Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin, Matthew Wilder, Middle of the Road, Liquid Gold, The Christians, Paper Lace, Dodgy, Daevid Allen, Bruce Woolley, Sad Cafe, The Housemartins, Francis Dunnery (It Bites), Johnny Hates Jazz, The Wurzels, Peter Noone, Suzi Quatro, Strawberry Switchblade, Danny Wilson, Racey, Electric Prunes, The Waitresses, Fiddler’s Dram, Bauhaus, Climax Blues Band, The Jags, EMF, T’Pau, Nu Shooz, Owen Paul, Steve Hackett, Steve Ellis of Love Affair, Hazell Dean, The Knack, The Maisonettes, Del Amitri, The Skids, Jesus Jones, The Soup Dragons, City Boy, Modern Romance, Wang Chung, The Kursaal Flyers, Fischer Z, Bruce Thomas of The Attractions, Scarlet Fantastic, The B52s. Junior, Spear of Destiny, Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine.

Ultimately, this book explores how when a song is released into ‘the wild’ the artist loses all control over it, especially pertaining to its interpretation. It is also testimony to the community spirit capable of being created over social media and how positive and fun it can be.

My Thoughts

🌟🌟🌟🌟.5 brilliantly Funny stars

What do you do when you hear a song lyric and wonder what it means? You write to the artist of course!

Remember that time before the internet that you used to buy Smash Hits to find out the lyrics to the songs you’ve been singing along to, only to find out that you’ve been singing them wrong this whole time?

Remember watching Going Live on Saturday mornings, watching and waiting for Spandau Ballet to come on to the telly so that you can drool over the saxophone player…..what was his name again??

Remember when you used to write in to the TV shows, just to get a band/artist to answer your questions?

Well Dave and Derek Philpott have done just this thing, and well, taken it to the stalker extreme, and actually wrote to the bands about things you have always wanted to know, like to Spandau Ballet advising them to speak to Watchdog about the fact that they had bought a ticket to the world and now they’ve come back again. or just to to berate Bananarama for using the phrase ‘Bop bop shoo be doo-wah.’

What is even funnier, is that most of these bands have written back, sometimes being their normal selves, but sometimes, just sometimes having a good old laugh and carrying on the jokes with the boys.

A great book to read as a music lover and a great present for one too, it is a fab coffee table book, filled with fun and laughs.

Enjoy

I Do Not Trust You by Laura J Burns & Melinda Metz @TwoHeadedWriter @WednesdayBooks #BookReview

Happy Monday book lovers!

Delighted to be on the blog tour and share with you today my review for this intriguing book! Many thanks to Brittani Hilles for my invitation!💛

37638243

Memphis “M” Engel is stubborn to a fault, graced with an almost absurd knowledge of long lost languages and cultures, and a heck of an opponent in a fight. In short: she’s awesome.

Ashwin “Ash” Sood is a little too posh for M’s tastes, a little too good looking, and has way too many secrets. He desperately wants the ancient map M inherited from her archeologist father, believing it will lead him to a relic with the power to destroy the world. M obviously can’t trust him.

Equally desperate to find the relic for reasons of her own, M forms an uneasy partnership with Ash. From the catacombs of Paris, to a sacred forest in Norway, to the ruins of a submerged temple in Egypt, together they crisscross the globe in their search. But through it all, M can never be sure: Is she traveling with a friend or enemy?

My Thoughts

Intrigue! Mythology! Distrust!

Laura Croft move over and make some room for Memphis! This book was filled with mystery, intrigue, mythology, Magic, and travels, and it was a lot of fun! This book takes you all over the world from the US to Norway to Paris to Egypt…. this book is a little step out of my usual reading but I’m glad I read it! I think I would classify this more as a mystery rather than adventure?

Memphis was a witty, Independent, and intriguing young lady. With a propensity for languages and a skill for the martial arts… grieving the death of her father Memphis is dealing with day-to-day teenage life until…Ash…. Ash is smart, good looking with abs of steel and a heart of gold…. well maybe not a heart of gold, but apparently he’s got those abs! He also has some information for Memphis… Memphis’s father is not dead, he is being held by a cult… in order to save her father and armed with an ancient map, Memphis and Ash travel near and far to find the “key“ to it all…. but is Ash friend or foe? Can he be trusted or not?

Loved the relationship between Memphis and Ash, loved watching them trying to figure out if the other was trustworthy or not… also I really enjoyed all the mythology and the supernatural elements…. The book started pretty ramped up but then it fell into a more steady pace, admittedly it almost stalled at a point, but fortunately it picked up again….

This was a fun read that I recommend if you enjoy mythology, intrigue, teenage angst, the supernatural, and exciting travels!

4.5 Startling Stars🌟 When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica @MaryKubica @HarlequinBooks #BookReview #PubDay

Happy Tuesday that seems like a Monday! Those long weekends always throw me off!

Thrilled to share with you my review for this suspense filled book with a bit of a controversial ending, that I personally loved!💕

When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica

My Thoughts

4.5 Startling Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟💫

WOW! Whether intentional or not this book definitely has an ending that has caused some controversy… for me the ending was absolute PERFECTION! It made every piece of the puzzle in this book fall into place and make complete sense….I’ve read other reviews and people described their reaction to the twist as a gasp, or frustration, or pure hatred… not me… my reaction was…. AHA! now I understand….. now I get what ____ was,And why ____ happened! This is not to say I don’t understand why this ending did not appeal to everybody, because I do… but I think everyone needs to read the book and figure out if it works for them or not….

This was my very first Mary Kubica Book… and I’m not sure why, but I can guarantee I will remedy that real quick…. her writing was so beautiful and smooth, almost lyrical…. even though this was a slow burning suspense I found the pacing perfect… The characters were so well drawn and relatable… I empathized with Eden’s struggles and felt Jessie’s grief…. all the little hints sprinkled throughout this book that made that ending so perfect for me, were just brilliant….

Told from Jesse’s point of view in the present and Eden’s point of view in 1996…. Jesse is a young 20-year-old grieving the loss of her mother and trying to figure out who she really is… literally trying to figure out who she is, after finding out that her Social Security number belongs to a dead girl… eden is a young wife struggling with infertility…. my mind ran through so many scenarios as to who Jesse really was and what Eden had done…. both mother and daughter had tremendous love and respect for one another… you just wanted there to be a good answer for all of your questions….

Absolutely recommend to those who enjoy a good suspense thriller filled with some surprising twists….

The Disappearing by Lori Roy @LORIROYauthor @Duttonbooks #BookReview

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Excited to share my review for this very southern and very Gothic book!💕

The Disappearing by Lori Roy

My Thoughts

4 Slow Burning Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟

Sometimes it’s nice to take a deep breath and read a slower paced book… The problem is your brain is so used to the fast-paced… frantic… can’t wait to get to the end books… that it is difficult to make the adjustment to a slower paced story like this…. this book was very southern Gothic and it reminded me of my impression of the south… A little slower, more traditional, more complicated but simple, a bit hard to understand at times (by a southwesterner like me), A little mysterious, and exquisitely beautiful! I truly hope this does not come across disrespectful to the south because it is a part of our country I find very mysterious and charming…

Lane has come home after many years away, something she never wanted to do… there are many family secrets and tragedies that are slowly revealed to us throughout this book…. it is very hard to live in a small town where everybody holds the actions of your father against you and now the same is happening to Lane’s children…. told from the points of view of Lane, her mother Irma, her daughter Talley, and Darrell who is a bit of a mystery…. this book offered us four different perspectives, but not necessarily four unique voices and this lead to some confusion at times… this was my main complaint about this book sometimes it was a bit all over the place…. and this might be a book I would have appreciated more on audio simply because the voices would change if done by a good narrator… and would be even better if done by multiple narrators….(Just checked it does have multiple narrators!)

A girl goes missing and this brings back memories of boys going missing from the local boys home as well as Lane’s own disappearance years ago… but for me this book was more about a family trying to heal…. secrets being revealed… A family breaking into even more pieces… and then picking them all up and trying to find a way to put them back together and making them fit in a different configuration…

Recommend when you are in the mood for a slower read filled with beautiful descriptive writing…

About the Book

Two-time Edgar Award-winning author Lori Roy spins a twisted, atmospheric tale about a small Southern town where girls disappear and boys run away.

When Lane Fielding fled her isolated Florida hometown after high school for the anonymity of New York City, she swore she’d never return. But twenty years later, newly divorced and with two daughters in tow, she finds herself tending bar at the local dive and living with her parents on the historic Fielding Plantation. Here, the past haunts her and the sinister crimes of her father–the former director of an infamous boys’ school–make her as unwelcome in town as she was the day she left.

Ostracized by the people she was taught to trust, Lane’s unsteady truce with the town is rattled when her older daughter suddenly vanishes. Ten days earlier, a college student went missing, and the two disappearances at first ignite fears that a serial killer who once preyed uponthe town has returned. But when Lane’s younger daughter admits to having made a new and unseemly friend, a desperate Lane attacks her hometown’s faade to discover whether her daughter’s disappearance is payback for her father’s crimes–or for her own.

With reporters descending upon the town, police combing through the swamp, and events taking increasingly disturbing turns, Lane fears she faces too many enemies and too little time to bring her daughter safely home. Powerful and heart-pounding, The Disappearing questions the endurance of family bonds, the dangers of dark rumors and small town gossip, and how sometimes home is the scariest place of all!

Providence by Caroline Kepnes @CarolineKepnes #BookReview #Providence

Happy Thursday y’all! Thrilled to share my review today for this interesting book that I would encourage you to read with an open mind!🤯

Providence

Providence by Caroline Kepnes

4 Wild Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis

Growing up as best friends in small-town New Hampshire, Jon and Chloe are the only ones who truly understand each other, though they can never find the words to tell one another the depth of their feelings. When Jon is finally ready to confess his feelings, he’s suddenly kidnapped by his substitute teacher who is obsessed with H.P. Lovecraft and has a plot to save humanity.

Mourning the disappearance of Jon and facing the reality he may never return, Chloe tries to navigate the rites of entering young adulthood and “fit in” with the popular crowd, but thoughts of Jon are never far away.

When Jon finally escapes, he discovers he now has an uncontrollable power that endangers anyone he has intense feelings for. He runs away to protect Chloe and find the answers to his new identity–but he’s soon being tracked by a detective who is fascinated by a series of vigilante killings that appear connected.

Whisking us on a journey through New England and crashing these characters’ lives together in the most unexpected ways, Kepnes explores the complex relationship between love and identity, unrequited passion and obsession, self-preservation and self-destruction, and how the lines are often blurred between the two.

My Thoughts

4 Wild Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Wow! This book was nothing and I mean nothing like Caroline Kepnes’s previous books…. this book was a mixture of young adult, crime fiction, the supernatural, and much more! It was a genre potpourri… and it worked… because the thing this had in common with Caroline’s previous books is it was very well written with some interesting characters…. I just don’t want you to enter this book thinking it is a dark demented twisted psychological thriller, it is far from that… although there are some disturbing and demented parts….

The book is told from multiple points of view including John and Chloe…. we met these two when they were still pretty young and I enjoyed the young adult aspect of this book… John is kidnapped when he is young and comes back with a superpower of sorts…. now here is the part that I might not have appreciated as much as I could have…. because I know absolutely nothing about H.P. Lovecraft… so if you are better acquainted with him perhaps this part will resonate with you much more than it did with me….

Our third point of view came from Eggs A detective… and that is not my autocorrect that is his actual name! Eggs has some demons of his own and is consumed with a case of young healthy people dying from heartattacks… he was an interesting character as well and I really liked the growth in him throughout the book…. how do all these characters tied together? Well you’re going to need to read the book to find out!

Recommend you read this book with an open mind, it is unlike anything you’ve read before, guaranteed!

*** many thanks to the publisher for my copy of this most interesting book ***

Review

5 Big Brilliant Beautiful Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

BEST BOOK of 2018 so far…. WOW! This book had all the feels…. I was absolutely captivated from first page to last… my emotions went on an amazing rollercoaster…. sorrow, anger, hope, elation, frustration, happiness, sadness, love, Hate, and so much more….

Margaret was a remarkable and inspiring character… she had a bright future and then tragedy struck and it was all taken away from her…. this book was about Margaret’s struggle and journey to the other side of tragedy… along the way she found out who the true people in her life were….

Margaret didn’t always do things how I would have liked, but who am I to judge? I’ve never fortunately been in this situation…. there were also some people in her life that frustrated me quite a bit, and some of the things said were mind blowing…. there were also some people in Margaret’s life that exceeded both her and my expectations…. I realize I’ve been pretty vague…. but I want you to go on this journey without too much information and enjoy it as much as I did…. something beautiful that was touched on in this book is the deeper the sorrow you have felt, the greater the joy you will feel….#Truth

Strongly encourage you to read this beautiful book filled with hope and resilience and love.💕

*** thank you so much to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this brilliant book ***

Much love! Berit 💛

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: May 15th, 2018

Cover Designer: Helen Williams

Photographer: Nicole Ashley Photography

Models: Oksana and Reydeon

Synopsis

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.

But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.

But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.

And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

MELT FOR YOU by J.T. Geissinger is available now! Read an excerpt below and pick up your copy of this sexy contemporary romance!

About MELT FOR YOU

A wallflower gets seduction tips from a playboy athlete—until love changes the rules.

Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday—with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks.

Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type—at all—but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.

Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man—and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.

Read an Excerpt from MELT FOR YOU

“Remember to breathe,” he whispers.

“Just kiss me already,” I whisper back, surprised by how much it sounds like a plea.

“Your eyes are still open.”

I immediately shut them.

His soft laugh sends a thrill up my spine. “If only you were that obedient all the time, lass.” He lightly nips my lower lip, a dark, delicious little promise.

My hands. What do I do with my hands? They’re flattened against his chest again, but that seems lame, so I slide them up around his neck…and discover his hair. Good lord. Thick, glossy strands of hair slide like silk between my fingers. It’s longer than any of the men’s at the office, much longer than Michael’s, past the collar of his shirt, dark and waving, exquisitely soft.

As his tongue slowly begins to probe my mouth, I tug on all that gorgeous hair, forgetting I’m not supposed to be enjoying this.

I arch against him, softening, expanding, breathing deeply through my nose as the kiss deepens and begins to burn. I wasn’t kidding when I said he was experienced. He knows exactly what to do, how to get my blood sizzling and my heart hammering and all the pornographic images of him nude and splayed out like the best Christmas gift I’ve ever received pulsing like neon signs inside my head.

My nipples tighten. There’s a new heaviness between my legs, but it’s not him, it’s me, flushed and aching, every pull of his lips sending a spike of heat to that hollow space inside me that I’m becoming acutely aware of, its muted little howls of need.

I break away to check in before I lose myself completely and choke him with my prehensile tongue. “How’m I doing?” I mumble, flushed and out of breath.

His eyes drift open. Hot and dark, they pin me in place. “Jury’s still out,” he says, his voice thick. “Need more evidence.”

His mouth. I will drown in the pleasure of his mouth. I’ll die on this sofa and Mrs. Dinwiddle will find my body, fingers and toes chewed on by the poor starving cat.

The kiss grows decadent. Sinful. I moan, a desperate sound rising from the back of my throat. It has an interesting effect on Cam.

His entire body goes stiff.

He takes my head in both hands, breaks the kiss, and turns his face away. He breathes raggedly for a few moments, his nostrils flared and his jaw like granite. With his fingers pressed into my scalp, he says roughly, “You can’t make noises like that.”

Oh God. I sound like a warthog. A donkey. A trained pig, snuffling through the underbrush in search of truffles. “Okay.”

The humiliation in my voice makes his eyes slash to mine. “It’s not bad. It’s just…distracting.”

Distracting?

He slightly shifts his weight, and things are clarified.

I bite my lip so hard I might have drawn blood. My heart is a hummingbird beating frantically against a cage. I whisper, “You said you wouldn’t get aroused.”

He looks at my mouth like a warlord looking over a kingdom he’s just seized. “I lied.”

A kiss again, dangerous, like standing at the edge of a cliff and looking over, shifting dirt and rocks tumbling beneath your feet. My fingers twist in his hair. His hands move my head, left or right, however he wants it, a throbbing pulse like drumbeats in my ears. I’m so turned on I feel frantic, unstable, like I might break out of my own skin.

Caterpillar becoming butterfly. Chrysalis shed, wings outstretched, wind beneath my belly. Caught on an updraft. Beating, beating, flying free.

He breaks the kiss, suddenly, shatteringly, the separation like breaking glass. Dizzy, I whimper at the loss of his mouth.

“Fuck. Joellen. Fuck.”

He’s panting, his voice a desperate rasp. He radiates heat like a furnace. Even his hands on my head are hot, burning right through my skull.

With his scent in my nose and his heat wrapped around me and his heart pounding against mine, I’m somewhere else. I’m someone else. A gypsy, casting spells. A sloe-eyed singer in a smoky jazz club. A femme fatale in a film noir, all knowing smiles and long legs and a throaty voice with an edge like a purr.

“Don’t stop,” I say in my new voice. “You taste so good.”

He stares right at me, his eyes intensely aglow. Tiger eyes. Wolf eyes. The eyes of a predator about to pounce on his meal.

He growls, “You like the way I taste?”

There’s a challenge in the question. Other than his ragged breathing, he’s so still, every muscle tensed.

What’s happening?

I come back to myself abruptly, all at once aware of how far this little experiment has gone, how dangerously close it is to the point of no return, and the cat up on the kitchen table eating the remains of Cam’s dinner from his plate.

Oh shit. My face floods with heat.

I’m not a gypsy. I’m not a femme fatale. I’m an awkward, lonely woman sitting on the lap of the most famous athlete on the planet, making an utter fool of myself.
