Blog Tour: Book Review & Top 10 – Sweet Surrendering by Chelsea M. Cameron

Blog Tour: Book Review & Top 10 – Sweet Surrendering by Chelsea M. Cameron

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours 0 ★★★

I suppose if I were to use one word to describe this book, it would be “cheesy”. You how there’s just that one (or multiple) couple who does and says things that are meant to be sweet or cute, but just comes off as cheesy and “cringe-worthy”? That’s how Aurora and Lucas came off for me. Maybe I’m just not into the overly sweet, but I’ve read “overly sweet” in… Read more »

Book Review: Winning the Boss’s Heart by Hayson Manning

Book Review: Winning the Boss’s Heart by Hayson Manning

Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★½

I’ll admit, I didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did and I’m so happy for this surprise. This was exactly what I needed because I’ve been going through quite a wicked reading slump lately. This book has romance, with a steady, realistic, and engaging pace. It also has a bit of drama; a few things happen to Billie that stir the pot and I loved how… Read more »

Book Review: Sweet by Erin McCarthy

Book Review: Sweet by Erin McCarthy

New Adult Book Reviews 7 ★★★

Sweet is kind of different than its predecessor, True, and a bit different from the general batch of NA titles out there today. That both worked for it and against it a bit. The con would be that the pacing was a bit slow and there wasn’t much in the way of “revelations” and such with the two main characters, at least, in my opinion. As much as I enjoyed… Read more »

I Haven’t Read It Yet [8]

I Haven’t Read It Yet [8]

Books 2

There are a TON of books out there I haven’t read yet that would put me to shame if you all found. But still, I thought I’d make a weekly feature showcasing some of them for you to see. Should I move them up the list? Is it wrong that I haven’t read it yet? Do I need to drop it from my shelf altogether? Maybe even a few of… Read more »

Book Review: Stir Me Up by Sabrina Elkins

Book Review: Stir Me Up by Sabrina Elkins

New Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

As much as I wanted to love this one, I found myself mildly liking it. And even that surprised me, because I was pretty annoyed with the characters for the first third of the book. It was weird, because I kept getting more and more frustrated with the characters, how they were treating Cami, how childish Cami was acting, how much of a jerk Julian was (granted, he was allowed… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review – Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland

Blog Tour: Book Review – Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours 2 ★★★

Worth the Fight is your typical “bad boy fighter type” meets “sexy, yet reserved female type”. This book kind of reminded me of Real, except I enjoyed far better than that, especially when it came to the female lead, Elle. There were some parts that were a bit too cheesy and, at times, Nico was a bit too possessive, but otherwise, it wasn’t half bad. Along with what I just… Read more »

My TBR Pile Challenge Update for September

Books 0

Looks like I didn’t do so good this past month. I’m pretty sure I’m in the throws of yet another reading slump, it’s been happening a lot lately this year. I may be experiencing a book burnout entirely. Or maybe I’m becoming more picky and understanding what genres I like and don’t like. I guess it’s a good thing I’ll be going on hiatus soon, isn’t it?! Considering how I… Read more »

Book Review: Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock

Book Review: Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★

After reading and loving Hemlock, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Thornhill and revisit these characters. Peacock really takes things a step further than I anticipated and things are way more crazy than I originally thought. What was once the story of Mac and the wolves of Hemlock, turns into something bigger and more sinister as the characters are thrown into the camp known as Thornhill. This book… Read more »
