Meh… Lazy Son by Eve Langlais [Book Review]

Meh… Lazy Son by Eve Langlais [Book Review]

  I picked up Lazy Son by Eve Langlais by chance when I saw the cover of the second book Jilted Prince, and thought that the blurb was interesting. I don’t exactly know what to say about Lazy Son because this was a bit of a mess? Crazysauce? The premise is this: Christopher is the antichrist and is the son of Lucifer but Lucifer doesn’t really know that this son exists because apparently Lucifer only has daughters? And then the heroine Isobel, is a witch that doesn’t really have powers but is the granddaughter or Rasputin? Yeah, THE Rasputin! But when […]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I FINALLY read it! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner was… enjoyable. Well, it didn’t blow me away as I expected it to, but it wasn’t bad. It was OKAY. Let me explain. Unearthed had a lot of world building to establish. They needed to establish Gaia and of course the Earth during that time. Unearthed also introduced the main players in this adventure and why they were on Gaia in the first place. Which is why there was a lot of telling and […]

Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I bought this audiobook because it was on sale for $1 or something when I got the free ebook on Amazon and I can’t believe I actually finished the whole book! No, I’m not saying that The Hookup is not good, it’s just that the main characters were a Mary Sue and Gary Stu! And I haven’t said this about any character ever! I mean, I’m all for a good girl and good boy characters but SO PERFECT? Really? Izzy, the SUPER Amazing WOMAN Here’s the deal, […]

What a Disappointing Series Ender! It’s Hard Out Here for a Duke by Maya Rodale [ARC Review]

What a Disappointing Series Ender! It’s Hard Out Here for a Duke by Maya Rodale [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Well, it took me a number of months to get into this book. To say that I was disappointed is such an understatement – this book was MEDIOCRE, to say the least! I was looking forward to this book since I read Lady Bridget’s Diary last year because I liked James. He was written as […]

Still not a Fan of Amnesia Romances. Love Will Always Remember by Tracey Livesay Book Review

Still not a Fan of Amnesia Romances. Love Will Always Remember by Tracey Livesay Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   A couple of months ago, I was reading a lot of contemporary romances. Yeah. Me. I am very picky about the contemporaries I read but I got sucked into reading contemporaries in August so I picked up Love Will Always Remember by Tracey Livesay. I am not a fan of amnesia stories because they are really difficult to pull off and I was right. Tracey Livesay created […]

Starfall by Melissa Landers | DNF Review

Starfall by Melissa Landers | DNF Review

I am finally DNFing Starfall because OMG the heroine is super annoying and the hero is so beta that I can’t even! It has been a few months since I put this book on hold and the recent restart still did not help at all! I enjoyed Starflight, the first book in the series. The banter was spot on and the characters were amazing! But Starfall totally missed the mark and did not have the same charm as that of the previous book. I eventually had to DNF the audiobook because I just couldn’t listen to Cassia anymore. She was […]

This Book Didn’t Meet My Expectations. Third Son’s a Charm by Shana Galen Book Review

This Book Didn’t Meet My Expectations. Third Son’s a Charm by Shana Galen Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Ewan Mostyn is a very interesting character. With that being said, he is the only reason why this book got 3 stars! I have been anticipating this book. I love the trope – rich girl gets a bodyguard and falls in love with said bodyguard. But this wasn’t executed as well as I […]
