Review #303

I didn’t finish this coming of age story, where family and magic is everything, but highly recommend it for teens instead of middle aged women who like reading young adult (like myself). Some YA crosses over for generations but this one didn’t do that for me. In “Blood like Magic,” sixteen year old witch, Voya,Continue reading “Review #303”

Review #302

I gave this standalone contemporary romance a 3/5 stars. I had trouble with liking Elliott throughout the book and didn’t quite see what she saw in him. Overall this book was a little flat for me in the emotion department. I wanted to feel more than I did. The looming presence of her deceased motherContinue reading “Review #302”

Review #301

I gave this contemporary romance a 4.5/5 stars. It marked off all the boxes for contemporary genre. Levi is adorable. It was highly predictable but that’s okay because it’s expected. What wasn’t expected was how well the steamy scenes were written. I’ve read a variety of erotica before and even though this one was tame,Continue reading “Review #301”

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 #299

So the finale of this steamy fantasy trilogy is a 4.6/5 stars. The author has done a really good job of the pacing for the believability of going from enemies to “I’d scorch the earth to save you” I’ve decided that this series is like the movie, Inception. The first time you see it/read it,Continue reading “Review #299”

Review #298

I liked the first one better so I rate this sequel a 4.5/5 stars. The third one comes out in a few days. Sometimes the mystery aspect felt too discombobulated and I’m pretty sure a bunch of answers still weren’t given by the end. My favorite part was the seductive steamy scenes, even though …Continue reading “Review #298”

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 #295

I gave this young adult fairy-tale retelling a 3.7/5 stars. Here’s my live thoughts and notes while reading: The mood is set that the dark forest holds monsters that are afraid of fire and years ago her father was attacked by a wolf of sorts. Adele is making the journey on the path for theContinue reading “Review #295”

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 #291

I’ve been waiting to read this forever and finally got around to it. I rated this young adult standalone a 4.4/5 stars. It was all in one point of view in first person past tense. Also, thank you for the family tree diagram in the beginning! At the beginning of this story about duty, desire,Continue reading “Review #291”
