Why does anyone like this? Dexter, Joe is not. I feel like I need to reread the Harry Potter books or something to end my reading year on a good note. Blech!

Meh, it kept me reading but I just felt like the story was one big mess. Bram was the biggest idiot ever. Even when he tried to do the right thing he did the wrong thing. Ugh!

Adorable story with tons of sexy tension. While not completely believable it managed to make me want to believe and that‘s all that matters.

Kept me reading and since it‘s based on a true story I know my irritations mean zilch but it still irritated me that an EIGHT year old forgot his entire childhood. I just can‘t even imagine. But I guess that‘s what happened so....

This is Buns. The most stubborn vindictive but snuggly kitty you‘ll ever meet. She has this powerful snore/heavy breathing when she‘s sleeping that is impossible not to fall asleep to. It could cure insomnia, I tell you! It‘s the reason I can never stay awake when I try to read. #catsofinstagram

These psychological thrillers usually have awful, unlikeable characters and leave me wondering why they‘re so popular. For once I think this one‘s popularity was justified. Lo was a likeable character if a bit naive and the story was great. I didn‘t see a thing coming and by the climax I was on pins and needles. Fun story with a satisfying ending.

What idiot decided this book should be written let alone published?! Stupidest book ever. And I don‘t even mean all the horrible characters but the story. It didn‘t make an ounce of sense. It‘s like the writer was high when she wrote it. It all made sense to her but everyone else is just patting her hand and looking for the exit. My freak! What a waste of time!

petersonks15 I didn‘t even know this was a book until today. Sorry it wasn‘t good, guess I‘ll wait on the movie. 11mo

What‘s up with these types of books having a full cast of crappy, awful, lying characters?

Sometimes historical fiction gets a bit bogged down with facts and at times this one did just that. However, since I love the place and history behind this one I found it interesting albeit slow.

KateFulfordAuthor @Jenny if you‘d like some more contemporary, at a quicker pace AND If strong females are your thing, may I recommend my debut? Check out the links in my bio (including links to reviews on Goodreads) to see if it is something you might like. Thanks, Kate. 12mo

Romance books really aren‘t my thing so I‘m not sure why I tried this one. It started out cute but the cliches got so abundant I started rolling my eyes. That and the predictable storyline made this one just OK for me.

While both characters had things about them that drove me nuts I found myself thinking about them and the story while I wasn‘t reading it. Always a good sign, right? I liked the look into different types of love and was satisfied with the ending.

Bring Me Back | B A Paris
post image
Panpan

I kept seeing negative reviews for this one and since I loved Paris‘ other books I was hoping this one would be ok but I agree with everyone else. It was pretty bad. I suspect this was a older novel of Paris‘ that she cleaned up a little and had published now that she‘s an established author. That‘s what it felt like: Something that never should have been published. And to make it worse; I saw the ending coming a mile away. What a disappointment.

What a depressing book! Basically reminding us what, in the words of Ruth, “judgmental pissants” we human beings are. I‘m ashamed of us. That aside, I wasn‘t riveted or dying to keep reading. The writing was ok. Just a sad story.
