Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

September 18, 2017 Reviews 0

Unlike anything I’ve read before, The Killing Jar by is an interesting, suspenseful read. I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf since before it came out and I happened across an audio copy of it. I highly recommend listening to the book as I couldn’t read it fast enough for my liking. The first line of the blurb is the first line of the book. If you skipped that part, go read it now. I’ll wait…..Awesome, right?! So I was hooked from the very first line. Beginning a book like that, you know as the reader that you are in… Read more »

Weekend Reads #98 – The Gender Secret by Bella Forrest

Weekend Reads #98 – The Gender Secret by Bella Forrest

Happy Saturday y’all! Today’s book is one I read back this spring when I was having all that drama and never got a chance to share with you. I really enjoyed it too! I enjoyed it so much that I downloaded and have purchased the entire series. Viggo and Violet are two very different characters with a common goal: find out the truth. If you enjoy fast-paced dystopia, I highly recommend you read . The Gender Secret by is the second book in series and picks up about one day after the events of the first book. Viggo is in the… Read more »

Review: Feels Like the First Time by Marina Adair

Feels Like the First Time by is the second in the about a small town and second chances. I personally really enjoyed this sweet story about best friends and a pretend relationship. We all know how those end 😉 Ali was my favorite side character in Last Kiss of Summer. She’s an independent woman, tomboyish, and the complete opposite of her former cheerleader- sister. And then there’s the small fact she’s always been in love with her best friend who also happens to be her sister’s ex.  Bradley Hawk *swoon* Hawk is a former NHL player turned bar owner.

TTT #121 – Top Ten Books From My 1st Year Blogging

TTT #121 – Top Ten Books From My 1st Year Blogging

September 12, 2017 Reviews 11

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Throwback Freebie,” so I decided that what better way to do a throwback then to look at my favorite reads from my first year blogging. I’m quickly coming up on my 4 year blogaversery and there were some great books and new-to-me… Read more »

Weekend Reads #97 – Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

Weekend Reads #97 – Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

September 9, 2017 Reviews 1

Happy Saturday y’all! Earlier this week I started reading a new-to-me series and wound up binging the entire thing in three days. Yep, 1200 pages in three days. It was worth the no sleep 😀 I love a good sci-fi dystopia and is just that. There’s a little bit of everything in the book as well: time travel, psychic abilities, romance, and of course rebellion. I couldn’t sit them down! I highly recommend that if you enjoy sci-fi, you grab a copy of this series and prepare to binge! Please note: The following reviews are in order of book release….

Review: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

Review: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

September 8, 2017 Reviews 2

Well….I finished the book and I’m still not really sure why I bothered. Mask of Shadows by was what I hoped would be a fantastic new YA fantasy series, but it fell prey to so many tropes that I’ve seen too many times. It’s like The Hunger Games and Throne of Glass had a baby…Mask of Shadows would be the product. Y’all it didn’t completely suck, but it wasn’t a great read, at least not for me. Sallot Leon, oh Sal. Sal is the gender-fluid main character. I stress the gender-fluid part because it the character beats it death during the course of the book. I’m not… Read more »

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

September 7, 2017 Reviews 3

I struggled to finish The Last One by . I wanted to like it. I really did. The premise sounded so promising. Reality TV mixed with true life apocalypse? What’s real vs what’s done for TV? I was all in. But the book is nothing like I thought it would be. First off the blurb is a bit misleading. “Widespread destruction” needs to be replaced with “World-wide pandemic.” In the opening chapters we learn that Zoo is awakening after being really sick. She’s disoriented and trying to figure out how much time has passed and how to get to her next challenge…. Read more »

I have no words for Empire of Storms by . No, that’s not true. I have a lot of words for this book, but none are very flattering. I love the series! It is one of my favorite high fantasies. So I was excited that I finally got the chance to read the next installment. Now I’m wondering what the hell I just read. Everything I love about the series is still there. I love the multiple character points of view and I love the overall series arc. BUT there are so many things I disliked. First off, I felt… Read more »

Review: The Irish Getaway by Siobhan Davis

Review: The Irish Getaway by Siobhan Davis

I’m not really sure how I feel about The Irish Getaway by . I was kind of excited to read it even though I’ve made no secret about my dislike for the two main characters. I thought a story set in the author’s country would be cool, but really there isn’t much about Ireland in this short story. It’s more about the party scene which seems shadier and more dangerous than the American party scene (still trying to figure that one out). Anyways….The Irish Getaway is more of a bridge, setting up the standalone novels for the rest of the Kennedy Boys, rather… Read more »

Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

August 25, 2017 Reviews 1

Oh Easton 😍 Fallen Heir by is the fourth book in and tells Easton’s story. This story is NOT for the faint of heart. It’s a heart-breaking, gut-wrenching, can’t-sit-it-down kind of read. I didn’t realize before I started the story that Easton would/could break my heart, but oh boy! He does. Easton is my favorite Royal boy. He stole my heart with his naivety and boyish antics. He’s a contradiction on so many levels. To Ella and the readers of the original trilogy, Easton has a big heart that’s been crushed beyond repair. I’m here to tell you that this is true,… Read more »
