I think when I first saw the cover and blurb for this book I was expecting more of the same contemporary paranormal romance I have read. Centuries old cursed warrior set free in modern times. This book is different from that, in the fact when the centuries old warrior is set free, this book reads more like a romantic high fantasy novel. I liked that the setting was something different and the world building. I think that is the only aspect of this book that I really liked. The story itself was a bit a yawn with steamy happy fun… Read more »

This book is actually a novella and so my review is going to short just like this cute short story. I really liked this story it was adorable, sweet and sexy. I am giving it four stars because it left me in a nice happy place.     I have been a reading rut for a week now. I think this story was just I needed to pull me out of it. It was a short story so I was able to finish it in one night. It was also, an entertaining romance. I am sucker for books about athletes… Read more »

I kind of actually liked this book and didn’t think it was as bad as some of the other reviews I had seen. It was a fast paced read that I was able to finish quickly. I think the story is more of3.5 read because while I liked the overall story I did feel like Maddie could have maybe done more to help with the investigation. I liked Maddie, she did cry a lot, but there was a lot going on in her life. The story felt a little like the other side of an adult mystery novel. Her uncle… Read more »

  I liked this book because it was an okay read. It was an easy read even though I didn’t really care who the mysterious vigilante was. It was just one those books that quick and I liked but I didn’t think it was the best thing since sliced bread. It was a bit predictable at times and I think I was expecting more of a thriller when I went into this book. The book is about Piper who finds a notebook full of scandals about her fellow students. Then one day she over hears some popular jock guys hassling… Read more »

[ARC Review] All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

When I first started reading this book it didn’t take long to figure out Finch’s mental health issues reminded me of someone I know. I didn’t think I would like this book because I usually don’t like reading books with characters that hit a little too to home to be comfortable. This is not something I always discuss with strangers but I have a parent that was eventually diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Growing up we didn’t know what it was so the extreme mood swings were normal just like they are for Finch’s family. It is not the family’s fault… Read more »

[ARC Review] This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

I LOVED the first book in this series, These Broken Stars. It was full of heart stopping action and swoon worthy romance. While the second book, This Shattered World, was full of action. For me, the romance part fell a little flat. I just didn’t connect with Jubilee and Flynn. I felt that it was realistic to have the two characters that are caught up in a revolution and conspiracies not to be declaring undying love after only a week. I also didn’t really care if they hooked up or not. I felt the story moved a little slower and… Read more »

In Wicked, Jennifer L. Armentrout, does it again and delivers another fantastic book. This time the heroine is up against the fae. The fae are not some sweet magical race that is just misunderstood. No, they are wicked and feed off the human. It is up to Ivy and her the Order she works for to fight the fae for the good of the human race. I really liked this book because it had everything I have come to love about a JLA book. It had a heroine that kicked butt and didn’t take orders from a man. It had… Read more »

I had hard time finishing this book because it was just down right boring in parts. I powered through and I finished the book. In the end, I didn’t hat but I didn’t love it either. I am giving an indifferent shrug and three stars because it is just an okay book, nothing special. Seven years ago Imogen’s life was torn apart when her parents died in a fire.   She cut off ties with her extended family in England and lived for years in New York with her guardians. Then one day she finds out the last of her living… Read more »

[Review] As Long As You Love Me by Ann Aguirre

This book is a standalone story but it is part of series about three roommates. While I liked I Want it That Way, I liked this book better because there was just something about the characters that I could really relate to. The main character Lauren has major social anxiety. It has become such an issue that she has to quit school and go back home before her anxiety turns into a major drinking problem. I can relate so well to social anxiety because I have some of the same issues. While mine probably aren’t as debilitating as Lauren’s it… Read more »
