Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins | Audiobook Review

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. After that fun #LoveAThon weekend, I got a few recs that got me excited to read books out of my comfort zone.  As you know, I hardly read contemporary YA, so I was a little bit hesitant to read Anna and the French Kiss.  But, there were a lot of positive hype about this book when this came out, and a lot of bloggers did say that it was SOOOO GOOOD, so I decided to try it.  Please be warned that there might be […]

The Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell | Book Review

The Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell | 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. MY THOUGHTS One of my favorite tropes is reunion romances and A Match of the Century by Cathy Maxwell was going to be that.  However, I was hugely disappointed.  I really tried to soldier on and finish the book, but I just couldn’t do it!  I finally gave up at 79% and decided to just let it go and mark it as DNF. What did not work for […]

Mine by Stacey Kennedy | Book Review + Giveaway

Mine by Stacey Kennedy | Book Review + Giveaway

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.   MY THOUGHTS Mine by Stacey Kennedy is the 7th book in the Club Sin series and is, in fact, a novella.  Mine also stars the couple in the first book, Claimed – Presley and Dimitri.  I’m not really sure if this is the last book in the series (but it does seem like it) but it is shorter than the others.  It also happens about a few years down the […]

Burn for Me & The Conspiracy of Us | DNF Reviews

  because these are just not my cup of tea MY THOUGHTS I just can’t get into the story. It’s just super boring and 22% in nothing has happened at all! A whole lot of info dump is what’s happening and I am still confused as to what alternate universe the setting is! DNFing at 22%. Just NO! This was my last post when I DNF’d Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews.  I had such high hopes for this book (and this series) because of the good reviews I read on GR.  But apparently, the story just didn’t work for me […]

Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi | Audiobook Review

Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Just like Heroes, the TV series” First of, let me just say that the covers of this series are just AH-MAY-ZING!  I mean, just WOW! The Shatter Me series is 3 books and 2 novellas (haven’t read those yet) is an audiobook I picked out when I was waiting for my holds to be available from the library.  I really did not have many expectations of this series but the blurb sounded really interesting, and did I mention those gorgeous covers?!  When I started listening to it,  I was taken in by the awesome narration (more on that […]

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

My Thoughts “A little bit shocking!” Isabella Aldridge is in dire straights.  After being let go from her latest post, she is having problems landing a new one, owing to the fact that she is very pretty.  Her last interview did not go very well when she was propositioned by the Earl of Hepplewood to be his mistress instead of his governess.  Spitting mad, she refuses the offer, no matter that she still has two siblings to raise and to protect from her lecherous cousin.  Still desperate, she rethinks the mistress situation and asks help from her former employer, who […]
