Review #260

I gave this a 3.0/5 stars. I’m unsure how to put this novel in a genre, maybe women’s literature. I think the focus is spiritual awakening or psychological with self awareness and how the characters perceive themselves in the world while contemplating life and death and their meaning. But it was pretty flat and slowContinue reading “Review #260”

I gave this contemporary (suspense?) a 3.8/5 stars. There’s two points of view of Meg and Kat and it also hops around in a specific decade of their lives. Here are my thoughts while reading: The story opens with tons of questions. Kat is possibly stalking Meg, who has been under the radar for years.Continue reading “Review #257”

I rated this contemporary novel by Emma Scott a 3.8/5 stars. Phew, the last 3-4 chapters were hard to get through. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a happily ever after and no twists saved the day, but it might be a tear jerker for some readers out there. Page 259 almost got me. Tugged on my heartContinue reading “Review #253”

Review #249

I rated this sequel in Adrienne Young’s duology a 4/5 stars. This epic fantasy was all about different sides fighting in a war. The romance was minimal. I liked that there were two points of view but since they had such little interaction, I’m not sure if it was necessary. The dual POV was moreContinue reading “Review #249”

“Life’s too Short” by Abby J got a 3.9/5 stars for me. This is the third in this contemporary romance series and I read the first two recently. I enjoyed the first two more with Kristin’s story being my favorite. Abby’s fourth book came out last month as a Book of the Month selection andContinue reading “Review #247”

I gave The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary a 3.0/5 stars. This contemporary romance story was a bit flat and dry for me. It was also slow but I do recommend it for romance readers to give it a try. Here are my uncensored thoughts while reading: In chapter 1 we learn of the unfortunate circumstancesContinue reading “Review #244”

Review #243

I gave Rainbow Rowell’s novel a 3.5/5 This romcom switched POV between first person in the emails to third person for Lincoln’s story Attachments started off with a bang of a witty exchange between Jennifer and Beth, seemingly best friends who know each other well enough to joke about inappropriate topics.  Chapter 2 was aContinue reading “Review #243”

Review #240

I have this contemporary romance a solid 4.2/5 stars. I liked the first in this series better than this one. Their relationship was sweet. There weren’t any unexpected turns or anything that had me on the edge of my seat. It was a cute easy read for a relaxing train-ride day. Here are my thoughtsContinue reading “Review #240”

Review #238

I rated the contemporary standalone, Reminders of Him, by Colleen Hoover a 4.8/5 stars. Sometimes I wish the artwork on her covers weren’t as vague. The only way I can describe this author’s style or give it a comp is “Nicholas Sparks but waaaay better.” Here’s the blurb: After serving five years in prison forContinue reading “Review #238”
