Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly, but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it at 72%. […]

Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey | DNF Review

Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey | DNF 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. When I read Disorderly Conduct, the first book in the series, I was delightfully surprised! In fact, I went ahead and requested the second book, Indecent Exposure because Jack Garrett was very interesting and what do you know, the second book is his HEA. But no! This book was an utter disappointment! Where was the charm? Where was the explosive chemistry that I was expecting? Gone. Nada. Zilch. Also, […]

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 […]

Burn for Me & The Conspiracy of Us | DNF Reviews

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 […]

Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen | Book Review

Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen | Book Review

My Thoughts “Disappointing.  Blah and boring.” I was extremely disappointed with this story.  I enjoyed previous Gayle Callen books but this was tedious and just plain boring. Although Adam Chamberlin, the Duke of Rothford was intriguing, he became dull and not likable early in the story.  I also did not relate to Faith at all and did not warm up to her immediately which is an odd thing for me. I also had bad vibes with this book since I have read unsatisfactory reviews on this so far but I still forced myself to read it and waited until the […]

A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn Macnamara | Book Review

A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn Macnamara | Book Review

This is Ashlyn Macnamera’s debut novel so she is definitely a new to me author.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love to read new to me authors.  In fact, I have discovered a lot of awesome authors this way.  However, this story just missed the mark.  I read the book knowing this was going to be about Miss Julia St. Claire but instead, I was reading about the sister Sophia meeting another guy!  I mean, I just barely started reading and by the time I reached Chapter 3, I was totally confused about where this story was headed. True, […]

February Book DNRs

February Book DNRs

There are times when the books you pick end up as a DNR  (Do Not Resuscitate, yes because I am a nurse, so I have to call it that).  At the first of the month, I had high hopes with my book choices.  In fact, I signed up for a mini challenge hoping to get through my TBR pile in a breeze.  For the most part, I had hoped that by mid month, I would be at least halfway done.  But no.  I just couldn’t get past finishing my choices.  Maybe I was being ambitious.  But I thought picking 5 books […]

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Disappointment does not begin to cover what I felt when I read the sequel to Firelight. I just could not get the love triangle between Jacinda, Will and Cassian.  I just wanted to hit Jacinda in the head. So much so that I just could not finish this book!  I didn’t even flip ahead to see how the whole book ended!  I just thought it was so ridiculous for Jacinda to be flirting with these two guys when she was already in love with Will!  Agh!  To top it all off, she goes and runs away to Will, […]
