Review – A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

I thought this was the conclusion that I wanted. I read that final page and had that overwhelming feeling of bittersweet misery that the series was over. Yeah, I know we’re getting 3 more books in this world but I haven’t heard any news yet of who they’ll be about and if my guess is correct then it won’t fulfill the issues I had with […]

Review – The Bad Luck Bride by Janna MacGregor

Review – The Bad Luck Bride by Janna MacGregor

I would have loved this book so much more if someone had simply explained to the characters what was going on and that this whole curse thing is nothing but ton gossip. But there wouldn’t have been a story. I don’t tend to enjoy romances where all the problems in the story could be easily solved with a single scene, usually involving the characters talking to each […]

Review – We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Throughout this entire novel I wasn’t sure how I felt about it and that’s never happened before! I’m usually able to tell how I feel about the book within the first 50 or so pages, but with We Are Okay, it took me until I sat down to write this review to figure out what I was going to rate it. I really liked We […]

Review – How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake

Another contemporary, another book I wanted to love but just didn’t quite get there, and not necessarily the fault of the book so much as my own reading tastes. This book was adorable and I’m a sucker for adorable contemporaries (see The Upside of Unrequited and Geekerella) but it didn’t hook me like those did and I’m honestly not sure why. I loved the cast. Grace is so strong […]

Review – Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor

Review – Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor

Goodness, I had high hopes for this book, especially upon hearing that it was perfect for fans of Outlander, which I loved. What I found was a lot of potential but nothing memorable. So some similarities. It’s hard to not compare this book to Outlander if you’ve either read the book and/or watch the show because Into the Dim is about a girl who travels back in time to Scotland. And there’s […]

Review – The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter

First off, I want to say that I was lost for a lot of this book. Sure, I knew the here-and-now events happening but there seemed to be a lot going on leading up to the start of The Untamed Vampire as well as background info during the book itself that I just didn’t have because I received this book for review without having read the first […]

Review – The Dangerous Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden

I spent FAR too long trying to get through this book. Van’s a Navy SEAL who ends up getting his adopted father’s entire oil business to take over and his foster-sister in the mix. Chloe, the sister in question, is stuck in the middle of a battle for the company and back with her brother who she was crushing on as a teen. Already I […]
