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”

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”

“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”

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”

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 #331

“Six Crimson Cranes” was a great YA fantasy full of adventure and action scenes, especially at the beginning and end. The middle portion had a slower plot to detail the characters. I loved the cranes theme and a strong, young princess as a heroine. The mute part felt a bit like the Little Mermaid whereContinue reading “Review #331”

“The Tourist Attraction” by Sarah Morgenthaler earned a solid 4.5/5 stars. This was a cute, clean, stand-alone contemporary romance that flowed smoothly. Someone had recommended it as a Christmas book. But, it’s not. I love that it’s set in Alaska, but there’s no holiday references. Still worth the ready during a cold December day. Overall,Continue reading “Review #328”

Review #326

Trigger warning for depression and teen suicidal thoughts. I’m rating this unique family drama a 4/5 stars. It’s all in Merit’s point of view in first person present tense narrative. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: Oh the first chapter was divine in so many ways. I could see the antique store so vividly. AndContinue reading “Review #326”

Review #325

I rated this holiday romance a 4/5 stars. I usually don’t think about characters when I’m away from the book, but I did about this one. It dig a spot into my brain. This first person narrative (all in one POV) had heavy LGTBQ+ representation throughout. I’m glad I picked this one over others inContinue reading “Review #325”
