Review #318

“The Spanish Love Deception” earned a 4.7/5 stars for me. I thoroughly enjoyed this contemporary romance with a happily ever after that almost hit too cheesy at the end but not quite. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: It starts out as an office setting enemies to potential lovers situation when Catalina desperately needs aContinue reading “Review #318”

Review #315

This witchy sequel earned a 4.8/5 stars. Frances and the crew returns for more mystery, adventure and heartache. I’d definitely like it even a little more if I has reread the first one immediately before starting this sequel. Here’s my live thoughts and comments while reading: The story begins in Paris in 1913 with “TheContinue reading “Review #315”

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 #312

I gave “The Age of Witches, a historical fantasy a 4.3/5 stars. Part of this reminder me of the book, “The Lost Apothecary.” Here’s my live thoughts while reading: In 1692, Bridget is awaiting her doomed fate as an accused witch, despite denying all the claims against her.  Chapter 1 starts in 1890 in Harriet’s pointContinue reading “Review #312”

Review #309

I stopped at page 50 for this contemporary romance with a bit of witchy magical fantasy elements. It’s written in first person past tense all in one point of view and the other books are “From Bad to Cursed” and “Back in a Spell” that seem to be set in the same town but withContinue reading “Review #309”

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 #307

I finished my Disney vacation read. Whisper of the Tide was a 4.5/5 stars. This young adult pirate sequel was just as good as the first. The middle was a bit slower than I wanted but the conclusion gave me what I was looking for. Here’s my live thoughts while reading: I’m not sure howContinue reading “Review #307”

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 #305

I rated this contemporary story a 3/5 stars. The prologue starts ten years ago with Lily and Leo in love and ready to run a ranch together. Chapter one is present day and Lily desperately wants the financial luxury to stop relying on income from the touristy treasure hunting events they offer travelers. And what’sContinue reading “Review #305”

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”
