Sucks To Be Me: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (First Fangs Club Book 1) by Kristen Painter - Review
#PWF - Paranormal Women's Fiction is not actually something I had heard of before this release. To be honest, anything with the words "Women's Fiction" in the description would normally have me running in the other direction, but this was not what I was expecting at all.
Finally we have some kick-ass heroines out there, dealing with the same things that many of us over 40's deal with..... kids, body changes, the necessary evil of trying to guess how long you are going to have to be standing as that will dictate the option of great versus practical shoes, but then these ladies all get a little unusual extra on their plate.
Followers of my reviews will know that I don't really have an age criteria preference, from YA to Historical, I will pretty much read them all, and still love following along with the adventures of those a good few years younger than me, but this? This was fantastic! Donna Barrone is definitely a woman I could relate to. Kids have moved out, (I mean the mob hubby was a lot left field of my life), but the food decisions, and as I already mentioned the SHOE choices (can you tell this was a big deal for me?), and then a huge paranormal shift occurring was definitely something I could get behind.
My reviews are spoiler free so you will have to grab the book to see what that paranormal shift involved, but I will say you won't be disappointed. This book had me laughing out loud as I connected so easily with Donna's inner monolgue. I am so glad that #PWF is making a stand for the non 20 year olds out there and cannot wait to devour more.
An easy, sparkling 5 stars from me (that I will leave on the page and not add to my jeans - when you read the book that will make more sense - leave me a comment when you get it!)
I will mention that although the end isn't a cliffhanger in the worse sense of the world, it definitely finishes with reader being ready for the story to continue. Luckily Book 2 is already available for Pre-Order with a planned release of April 28th 2020.
