Monday Madness

Hello, wonderlandians! Thank you for joining me here today. How is your Monday night going? I came home from work and cleaned my apartment for two hours. Adulting is fun. I swear I have had more caffeine today than I have had all week. Getting to bed at 3 am when you have to get up at 6:30 in the morning is not a good idea. In my defence, though I had gotten into this really cool story. This caused me to look like a zombie. The result at the end of the day looks something like this

I have had a problem over the last few days where I have not wanted to read anything. This makes me turn to the internet to help me find something to distract me. I think I have been cramming in a lot of reading in these last two weeks. I have basically finished a book a day. Which is great though sometimes the mind needs a break. I have found that watching Youtube and taking a break from reading is a good thing. A lot of the books I have tried to read over the last few days have not held any interest at all to me. I found myself on wattpad last night at about 8pm. See this was my first mistake. I wanted to read something that I could skim over and make my eyes tired. Usually, when it comes to sites like wattpad and fanfiction.net I tend to skim over the stories there. This time, however, I did not find any fanfiction on wattpad last night that help interest to me.

I fell down the rabbit hole of original stories on wattpad. It did not look good with everything that I had started reading. Then right as I was about to give up I found a dang story with over 35 chapters. I was reading that story for 8 hours and I am still not done. I want to finish this story tonight. It is called Midnight CEO. It is by a wonderful author on there named AluraJasmine.

I have not in a long while that down for 8 hours straight just to read one story. Typically I’m listening to an audiobook so I have the advantage of moving around while I’m listening to the book. I did find myself switching between my phone and my laptop to read this story. I believe the story has over 63,000 views on Wattpad. Going into the story you think it’s going to be one thing and then it turned out to be something completely different.

I know that there are a lot of authors on Wattpad that get a lot of heat for posting their stories there. I have read a lot of books that have started off on Wattpad and then got pulled to be cleaned up and then published traditionally or even self-published. I believe the book called Beautiful Bastard was started on Wattpad and then was pulled. That book has now been optioned for movie rights.

So I have a couple questions for you guys today. What do you guys think of Wattpad authors? what do you guys think of sites like Wattpad? have you found any good stories on Wattpad?

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of Wonderland. Don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. I saw that they were giving rides to anybody who gave them a treat. they’re also hanging out in the waterhole with some mermaids. They can be a little bit tricky so be careful around the mermaids.

Until next time

Much love

A.M. Salinger
(Night Series, #2)

He is everything I’ve ever wanted in a man. And I will do anything to get him. Even if I have to lie to him — Ethan

He is a sinful temptation. A guy who loves pushing all my buttons. But I can’t touch him. And I most definitely cannot have him — Joe

Ethan Skye has had only one goal in mind since the first night he walked into Saron, the most exclusive gay club in Tokyo: to win the heart of Joe Cavendish, its brooding owner and the man he’d fallen in love with at first sight. When Ethan takes a job as a bartender at Saron to get closer to Joe, little does he know that his actions will set him in the sights of an obsessive admirer.

Jaded by his troubled past and with his heart very much guarded, Joe Cavendish has one strict rule in life: never mix business with pleasure. Unfortunately for Joe, one cocky, sexy bartender seems intent on testing that resolve to its very limits, and Joe finds his patience and his libido increasingly challenged as he fights his growing attraction for his new employee. But after Joe discovers the danger Ethan is in, his possessive instincts compel him to take on the role of Ethan’s personal bodyguard and pretend lover.

Can Joe protect Ethan from his increasingly violent stalker and maintain his own sanity while he gets up close and personal to the alluring young man storming his way inside his numb heart? Will Ethan overcome Joe’s stubbornness and convince the club owner to take a chance on love? Or will the secrets they’ve been keeping from each other threaten their fragile, burgeoning relationship?

Discover Ethan and Joe’s story in this second novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger.
