How to Lose a Bride in One Night by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

How to Lose a Bride in One Night by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

  Ridiculously Short Plot An heiress is “killed” by her titled husband (a Duke, no less) on the eve of her wedding for her inheritance but was found and rescued by a third son (who is an Earl, on his mother’s side). Main Characters Annalise Hadley Owen Crawford Themes Rags to Riches Marriage of Convenience Murder after marriage Setting London, England Favorite Quote/Line “Poison can leak into any man’s heart. If it is not purged it is just as lethal as any dagger” Recommendations All in all, I thought it was an OK read and it is not something that […]

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

This novella was a very quick read for me. I was able to read it in a couple of hours or so. While this had a very promising plot, I thought the story was ok. Maybe because it is a novella and the author had to shorten the storyline – it just didn’t work for me. I like my romance to be well developed and not a lust at first sight type of thing. Normally, I shy away from novellas because of this reason. However, I love Sabrina Jeffries’ work so I decided to give this a shot. The story […]

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Book Review

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS What more is there to say about Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight? I understand that it is a very popular book, but this book didn’t capture me as it should have. I struggled while reading this book. First, I didn’t really get the obsessive love/relationship Bella had with Edward. The times that Edward was watching Bella while sleeping without her knowing really creeped me out. I thought it wasn’t very romantic (although some might view it as romantic) and it felt stalker-ish. Next, I hated that these breed of vampires glittered in the sunlight. This really re-wrote the vampire lore […]

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, […]

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I was a little bit disappointed about this sequel. Again, this book left me hanging and there was still a lot of issues that were left unanswered.  To be honest, I am still a little bit puzzled about the development of Daniel and Luce’s love story. True, they are destined to be together and have been falling in love in their past lives, but it was hard to believe how they fell in love in THIS life. It also seemed that Luce was not that interested with Daniel since it was apparent that she was flirting with another […]
