I really enjoyed this fun and clean hate to love romantic comedy. Set in the celebrity chef world, this story was full of growth, romantic tension, and delicious dishes.

Persuasion retelling set in space. It started out interesting but the addition of extra plot devices wasn‘t needed. I ended up not loving it.

I LOVED this gritty YA vampire story. The perfect mixture of danger and glamour and the vampire romance I‘ve been looking for.

Disappointing. The characters were one dimensional and the story was boring. Interesting premise that then went nowhere.

An ending that was okay. There were some issues that were glosses over and I would have appreciated more details or explanation. I was happy with the outcome, but I don‘t think the last 3 books were even necessary.

This book is a little better than Restore Me, but still not up to caliber of the original trilogy. And we‘ve added another POV.

Restore Me | Tahereh Mafi

This book has taken the series in a weird direction. Characters have taken steps back or are in recognizable. And I‘m not sure I‘m loving the multiple POVs all of a sudden.

Another good historical romance from Kleypas. I love having all the stories connected.

I really enjoyed this book. Had a great ending and I‘m not really sure why the series keeps going after this one. I love all the Warner and Juliette romance.

Another great Kleypas historical romance. Loved the added element of a little danger to the romance.

Pacing was slow with a lot of inner monologue. But the story picked up a lot in the last quarter.

A little better than the first one. Still confused by the underwater cover as there isn‘t any water in this story. The plot picked up a little but I‘m still having a hard time connecting with the main protagonists.

Great ending to the trilogy. Fantastic mystery with dual timelines and a fantastic young detective.

Not great urban fantasy. Maybe my expectations were too high. It was slow and I‘m having a hard time connecting with the characters. It picked up a little at the end.

She ends up with who she should. But she still gets walked over a lot and is annoyingly naive. Okay rom com.

Classic historical romance. I liked it, but didn‘t love it. The series has some great ones and some okay ones. But I still love the formula.

I liked the look inside the journalism world. I enjoyed the story showing the difference between casual sex and a relationship with emotional weight, but the ending was a little.....huh? I wanted more closure and maybe some romance for a book touted as a rom com. Still a good read.

The characters felt flat. The plot was nonexistent. I tired of the “I don‘t understand how to woo a woman” thread. But cute cover!

A great ending to a wonderful series. I love morally gray characters and this world is full of them. The romance is swoon worthy and the intrigue is addicting.

Eight Will Fall | Sarah Harian

Thrilling horror fantasy about a group of eight rebels/prisoners who are sent in a crack underground to stop a very bad guy. Monsters, magic, banter, and I couldn‘t put it down. Even if spelunking is my worst nightmare.

Had a great beginning, very Oliver Twist. Then as the story progressed it was boring.

Loved it. My expectations for this were met. Gritty urban fantasy full of every paranormal creature you can think of with a good mystery. Lots of world building, but it all@makes sense by the end. Fantastic slow burn and hot tension filled romance. Can‘t wait for the next one.

It was very sweet. Just like a Tom Hanks rom com. I would have liked a little more tension between the romantic interests. Still cute.

I enjoyed the follow up to The Hazel Wood. I still loved the first one more because the world was so fresh for me and took me by surprise. But this one still is captivating and includes more of my favorite new dark fairytales that are the cornerstone for the story.

After a slow first few chapters the book takes off with action and magic and lots of morally gray characters. I really enjoyed it.

Way too much information dropped in this first book about politics, the magic system, history of wars, etc. it read like a textbook. Hopefully the next book picks up the plot.

Wonderful distopian feminist book. Violence, sisterhood, jealousy, mystery, first love, and a society of men who fear women‘s feminity.
