Well… I said I’d do it, so I guess I’d may as well start, huh? Just small reviews mind you; I’ve no intention of writing for ages and ages about books I’ve read – unless they deserve it – but I’ll still do quick kinda mini reviews.

Title: What Do You Say To A Naked Elf?
Apart from her being a TV-and-movie junkie and a sales woman extraordinary of adult lotions, potions and play things, play Jane Drysdale’s life was nothing unusual. That was, until a moment of reckless driving catapulted her into a fairytale world like a J.R.R Tolkien book on crack.
This was an absolutely hilarious book! Yes, I admit that at times, the humour was a little forced and, the tiniest bit cliché, it was enough to keep my howling. Jane is an incredibly reluctant heroine but that didn’t stop her making her mark on the poor little town where the elves live. She is sharp tongued, undeniably sexual and flustered almost the entire way through that nothing at all in this world makes any sense whatsoever. It makes a wonderful counter balance to the ‘naked elf’ she meets who watches his world fall gradually to bits in utterly helpless wonder.
What Do You Say To A Naked Elf is a light-hearted love story that takes very little effort to get into. From the first page in which you meet Jane and along the journey as she learns the truth of her destiny, the book is an easy read. Don’t expect grand, majestic complicated plot, instead, kick back, relax and simply enjoy the simple yet witty, highly enjoyable story of a normal woman trapped in a crazed fantasy world entirely against her will.
