[ARC Review] A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan

Amy's Reviews, ARC Reviews, Reviews 0 Comments

31 July

I am going to admit something, I like happy endings and the feeling I get when I have been swept up in the throes of a good romance. I am not ashamed to admit this. I really liked A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin because it was sweet, sexy, and swept me away. The book starts off with Rosalie Hughes when she is quite literally left on the doorstep of her estranged step brother’s house, the Duke of Branbury. Rosalie has nowhere else to go because her mother left her at finishing school way past the appropriate age. Declan, out… Read more »

27 July

This was the second time I tried to listen to this audiobook. The first time I will admit I got a little bored and gave up but the second time I was determined to listen to Throne of Glass all the way to end. You know what, I did it. I just finished listening to Throne of Glass and I can honestly say I don’t hate it. Do I want to shout it’s praises from the rooftops? No. Do I want to buy copies and force all friends to read it? No. While, I wouldn’t go out of my way… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Merciless by Danielle Vega

20 July

Have you ever finished reading and/or listening to a book and thought what the heck did I just read? After finishing The Merciless, the one thought that kept running through my head was, WTF.  The most disturbing thought of all was I kind of liked it, and I want to read the read and/or listen to the next book.     The Merciless is a YA horror novel. In the description on audible it even says for, “Mature Audiences Only.” I knew parts of this book might get vicious and downright disturbing. I guess I just didn’t know how much… Read more »

[Review] Queen of Swords by Katee Robert

17 July

I am huge of science fiction and romance, so when I find a book that can combine the two, I am of course in seventh heaven. Queen of Swords is a fun story full of intergalactic adventures and happy endings. I really really really liked Queen of Swords. This book was good, it makes me want to dance with glee.       Queen of Sword is a swash buckler sci fi romance for sci fans, who like things like Farscape and Star Wars. This book is about a daughter of a gunrunner down on her luck and the cocky prince… Read more »

[Review] A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard

Amy's Reviews, Reviews 1 Comment

13 July

First off let me say that I enjoyed this book so much better than the first book, Something Strange and Deadly. A Darkness Strange and Lovely takes place three months after the events in Something Strange and Deadly. I think it I liked A Darkness Strange and Lovely because it was full of: hot kisses, zombies and old fashioned Paris balls. Of course, a heroine that scoffs at traditions and hunts zombies in pants, no corset, and kicks butt with magic.     A Darkness Strange and Lovely takes place in late 1800s Paris this time. Eleanor goes there to… Read more »

[ARC Review] Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Amy's Reviews, ARC Reviews, Reviews 0 Comments

10 July

To quote Sir Walter Scott, “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” I think that pretty much sums up Kiss of Deception. There are lies and mysteries that even, I, as the reader couldn’t figure out until they were unveiled. I liked Kiss of Deception a lot because it is a book about deception but also a book about courage. I loved the idea of a princess willing to risk everything for a chance at happiness and then willing to risk it again to fight for what she thinks is right.   Kiss of… Read more »

[ARC Review] Magnolia by Kristi Cook

Amy's Reviews, ARC Reviews, Reviews 1 Comment

06 July

Let me say first off there is just something about a boy from the south.  I don’t mean rednecks, I have nothing against rednecks.  I mean a well-mannered boy from the south that calls his mama, says yes ma’am, and most of all has one of those lilting southern accents.  Ladies, let me tell you that Ryder from Magnolia has all those qualities and more.  When I read Magnolia I spent the whole time wishing I had met a boy like that when I was seventeen. Magnolia is a story of two teens whose parents want them to be together. … Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

03 July

I actually got this book as an e-Arc, but I didn’t have time to read it so I bought the audio book right when it came it out. My first thought after finishing the audio book of The Murder Complex was I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. It was one of those books that was either very interesting or very slow. I don’t know if it was just me, but sometimes I found myself right on the edge of my seat and other times I found myself tuning out the book and running my grocery list… Read more »

[Review+Giveaway] Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae

Amy's Reviews, ARC Reviews, Reviews 5 Comments

01 June

Today I continue my foray into contemporary romance with Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae.  This book is YA contemporary that is cute, sweet, heart-breaking at times, and oh so romantic.  This review will be short and sweet for a book that is the same.  Wish You Were Italian is about a young woman who is kind of forced to go to Italy, the summer before her senior year, to attend a program in art history.  The only problem, Pippa is not that into art history. She is ready for this summer to be the worst summer of her… Read more »
