Review #233

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez received a rare 5/5 stars from me! This friends to lovers had so many feels and I felt like I went on a whole, deep journey with Josh and Kristen instead of staying in the shallow water like some other contemporary romances. There are two more books in thisContinue reading “Review #233”

Review #232

I gave “The Stars We Steal” a solid 4/5 stars. This first person (one point of view from Leo) sci-fi YA stand-alone was enjoyable & flowed smoothly. It was a bit predictable but was an easy read for a lazy, sunny day. I had first heard of this author from YouTube channels that educate authorsContinue reading “Review #232”

Review #229

I’d give this fantasy a 4.9/5 because I still wanted a little more emphasis on the romance. It was a tiny bit better than the first novel in this duology. I appreciated the effortless prose in first person present tense that stayed in Alosa’s POV the whole time.  Here were my thoughts while reading: ChapterContinue reading “Review #229”

Review #228

I gave a strong 4.8/5 star rating for Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. If you want a female Captain Jack Sparrow, this is the fantasy pirate book for you. I assumed this was fantasy romance, but the romance wasn’t as strong as a focus as I wanted because of the cliffhanger ending.Continue reading “Review #228”

Review #226

The contemporary romance of “November 9” was a solid 5/5 rating for me. I’ve read more than a handful of CoHo books and I’m finally starting to understand the rage. Her characters are so crystal clear and layered from the very first chapter. It reminded me of “One Day” by David Nicholls and “This TimeContinue reading “Review #226”

Review #223

So, one day when I walked into Barnes and Noble, I told the salesclerk I was looking for fantasy and sometimes dipped my toes into demon themes. She highly recommended House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland but said it was a bit scary. I was nervous and hesitant to purchase it, because I don’t likeContinue reading “Review #223”

Review #219

I read Heart Bones by Colleen Hoover in one day and it was a great 4.9/5 star rating! This was my favorite CoHo book so far (compared to Regretting You, It Ends With Us, Ugly Love, Verity and Layla). This standalone fit into the contemporary genre and had a first person, present tense point ofContinue reading “Review #219”
