Review #314

I gave this YA contemporary romance (clean) a 4.3/5 stars. It’s all written in Madeline’s point of view in first person present tense. Sometimes it was TOO young adult, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this standalone. It was easy, sweet, cute and read well. I mean who doesn’t like book store rivalry, enemies to lovers,Continue reading “Review #314”

Review #308

I gave “Bookish and the Beast” a 4.1/5 stars. Check out my Instagram for pictures of Princess Belle signing the cover while I was at Disney World. This was a clean, inclusive, easy YA read of a modern day beauty and the beast retelling. Unfortunately I never ended up liking Vance and was a littleContinue reading “Review #308”

Review #306

I gave this young adult fantasy a 4.4/5 stars. It was all written in one point of view in first person past tense and flowed so well. I’m starting the sequel right away. Here’s my live thought while reading: I was a bit confused in the first few pages but by the end of chapterContinue reading “Review #306”

Review #300

I almost stopped at page 30 but am so glad I continued because I rated it a 4.7/5 stars. It’s a standalone enemies to lovers with dual points of view. The author mentioned that this idea came from a gender reversal Beauty and the Beast to see if she could write a boy falling inContinue reading “Review #300”

Review #297

This amazing fantasy was a 4.9/5 stars! The dark themes were done so well and I really enjoyed the ride. I can’t wait to start the sequel tonight. Some would categorize this as young adult since she’s 18 but it didn’t feel YA to me. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: The prologue is fromContinue reading “Review #297”

Review #292

I gave this standalone contemporary romance a 5/5 stars. It’s written in two points of view, switching between Katrina and Nathan, both in first person present tense. This author duo made me completely fall in love & I wasrooting for them the whole way. The prose were effective, flowing, beautiful & well balanced between movingContinue reading “Review #292”

Review #285

I gave this pirate fantasy romance a 4.8/5 stars. The sequel is out but the third in this trilogy comes out in august 2023. There are three points of view all in third person narrative. I loved the slow burn and even though this stays clean the author says there will be more steam later.Continue reading “Review #285”

Review #283

This fantasy enemies to lovers is a 4.2/5 for me. The story telling was great but the overall vibe felt underwhelming especially after it’s been talked up so much on social media. It’s written in third person in two points of view. I wish the chapters were labeled with whose head we’re in before startingContinue reading “Review #283”

Review #282

I bumped this down a tiny bit from my Instagram post to a 4.3/5 stars rating. If you like fast paced Little Mermaid retellings and witchy books this is a great one for you. Sometimes the plot felt unconnected and sporadic instead of outlined beforehand but I enjoyed the ride. Oh and I read thisContinue reading “Review #282”

Review #279

I gave this enemies to lovers romantasy a 4.1/5 stars. I loved Nikolai’s scenes & the world building was done pretty well. Keera’s gradual character growth was done expertly and I appreciate the reality of it. But I won’t be reading the rest of the series later when they come out because of the slowContinue reading “Review #279”
