Review #339

‘Heart of the Raven Prince’ by Tessonja Odette is the third book I’ve read in a row in the Entangled series. This one is a 4.6/5 stars. It’s a Cinderella retelling and so far it’s the only one that has had two points of view, Ember AND Franco. (Unless I’m remembering completely inaccurately.) Music isContinue reading “Review #339”

Review #338

This Beauty and the Beast retelling earned a 4.8/5 stars for me. It was written all in first person from Gemma’s point of view. I’m so excited to read at least two more books in this interconnected fairytale series. These are my thoughts (live) while reading: Gemma just recently moved to the winter court, seemsContinue reading “Review #338”

Review #337

“Kiss of the Selkie” by Tessonja Odette earned a 4.9/5 stars for me. It reminded me of “Serpent and Dove” by Shelby Mahurin crossed with “The Selection” by Kiera Cass. The .1 point I took off was once in a while it felt too much like The Bachelor show. But otherwise this book was perfection.Continue reading “Review #337”

Review #335

I gave Alexa Martin’s contemporary romance called “Better Than Fiction” a 4.2/5 stars. Check out more info below. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: So the main character is pretty pessimistic at the beginning. It too a while to determine her gender and after chapter 2 I don’t recall her name but just wait, weContinue reading “Review #335”

Review #334

I’m rating this dark fantasy sequel a 4/5 stars. Read my comments below for my live thoughts while reading. It starts in Isolde’s perspective and honestly, I was a little lost at first because I’ve read so many similar novels that I couldn’t recall which plot this one followed. It slowly came back to meContinue reading “Review #334”

Review #333

The best way to start out a new year is a book with a title, “It Starts With Us.” I gave this dual POV a 4.4/5 stars Everyone and their cat knows about “It Ends With Us” by Colleen Hoover. This sequel was demanded by the readers and I can’t wait to hear more ofContinue reading “Review #333”

Review #332

“Mouth to Mouth” received a 3.9/5 stars from me. I’m unsure if it’s considered “suspense” or a different genre. Two college acquaintances randomly meet at an airport at age 43ish and one of them opens up about a major life-altering event from 20 years ago that he hadn’t told anyone else in his entire life.Continue reading “Review #332”

Hopeless- DNF

Sky’s voice is very appropriately 17 and realistic but I’m just not connecting. Which is okay since I’m 35, lol. I’ve read tons of other Colleen Hoover books but this one isn’t for me since it’s VERY young adult.  It starts out in October 2012, written in first person narrative with such extensive emotion thatContinue reading “Hopeless- DNF”

Review #329

I really liked another book by this author but they’re both very YA feeling. Obviously that’s the intended genre, but the topic of the post-divorce issues of her parents aren’t my cup of tea. I gave this YA contemporary called, “Spells and Lost Things” a 3.8/5 stars. Here’s my thoughts while reading: I love howContinue reading “Review #329”
