Ok Litsy! I am looking to read some graphic novels. I‘d love something cute and fun since I already get my superheroes fix. I loved Nimona and thought In Real Life was just meh but what can you suggest?!

One of many books on my physical TBR shelf. While it was a quick and easy read it wasn‘t necessarily good. The only thing that kept me going was trying to find out if the girl that came in and said ‘help me‘ was Tara or not.

Loved this book! The imagery was beautiful and the characters were strong and likable. Can not wait to read the second one!

Ok writing. Some parts felt forced and that they didn‘t need to be included. I might try her again.

Cut Me Free | J. R. Johansson

Extremely quick and easy read. Story was fast paced and compelling, though definitely had some holes throughout. Just the kind of pick me up I needed for the week I‘ve had.

I won‘t lie, I only read this book for the teenage idiocy. The ending was better then the first half but ultimately I was left underwhelmed.

Decent retelling of Beauty and the Beast. The world building was great and the characters were deep.

Sort of strange, definitely thought it was going to be more of a domestic thriller and not really more suspenseful.

While this one was much slower then the others it felt warranted as it gave more of an insight into the characters and their daily lives. I‘m extremely disappointed with the fact that I only got one dealing between Nesta and Cassian however and need more.

TheBookKeepers Agreed!! Need more Nesta + Cassian! 4y
brutalbookworm I was dying reading the extra bit at the end!! 4y

It was good without being great but not as good as other twisted tales I‘ve read. Through a large portion of it I felt like I was skimming what I was reading and had to go back and actually reread it

Firewalker | Josephine Angelini

This book was neither good nor bad. It didn‘t blow me away but it also didn‘t make me want to jump up and throw it in the garbage. Once again it felt filled with tropes that are over used and didn‘t necessarily add anything substantial to the story.

Hunting Prince Dracula | Kerri Maniscalco

A wonderfully done sequel to Stalking Jack The Ripper. I absolutely love the characters and the sexual tension between Cresswell and Wadsworth and can‘t wait to get my hands on the third! Will be adding the review on my new blog beautyandthebookwormonline.wordpress.com

I received this ARC from netgalley and kept putting it off. I‘m so upset that I let other books get in the way of finishing this, I absolutely loved it!! The first 10% went a bit slow but I literally just finished the rest in a 3 hour sitting! Full review to come.

Trial By Fire | Josephine Angelini
Mehso-so

Pretty typical YA fantasy book, you have your super sexy brooding male protagonist with the I‘m-not-sexy but is totally sexy female protagonist who wind up falling for each other. Her best friend who she loves of course is a turd bag. Magic that she doesn‘t know how to control but of course winds up doing so perfectly. It was good enough for me to try the second one but not overall great.

This hit a little close to home for me as I am dealing with advanced Alzheimer‘s with my grandmother. Obviously I hope she isn‘t a murderer but it was a bit hard for me. The only thing I found confusing was the very end.

tpixie I‘m sorry to hear about your grandmother. I thought the ending was a little confusing too but I‘m thinking because of his Alzheimer he forgot Hans killed everyone and he thinks he did the killing again. 4y

This was a cluster of twists and turns and a crazy ending I did not see coming. Even though I was lost through a majority of the book I found myself thinking about it all day while at work excited to get home to read more. I actually won a beautiful signed copy from Goodreads and the wonderful author wrote me a letter which was the sweetest thing ever!

While I enjoyed the book as a whole I definitely was more interested in Darcy‘s story she was writing and in the logistics of book sales then anything else.

I absolutely loved this book. I thought it was an entrancing story and even though I knew what was going to happen it didn‘t keep me from continuing! I will be reading the second one!

The Night Market | Jonathan Moore
Panpan

Very disappointing, I went into this thinking it was going to be a good let‘s solve this missing memory thing and was slapped in the face with an abysmal ending. I wanted to know why the body was contagious, why the body was there at all, more about his previous “episodes” and was left with nothing but a giant red hand print on my face.

Mass Effect: Revelation | Drew Karpyshyn
Pickpick

As a huge Mass Effect fan (seriously I've met 3 of the voice actors) I was slightly let down. I assumed there would be more action and when there wasn't I was meh. After finishing the book and looking back on it I found it more enjoyable than I thought originally. I do love that we got some background into Seren and how he became involved with Sovereign and Captain Anderson is amazing.

The Masked Truth | Kelley Armstrong

I am trash for everything Kelley Armstrong wrotes. I think she has a way of writing that makes even the most boring and constantly retold stories come to life. The same is said with this one. While the characters themselves were stupid at times I couldn't help but get completely immersed

I was hoping that this was going to look more at the murder rather then the aftermath. I was bored through most of it and had a hard time pinpointing where in the timeline we were as the author wasn't clear when the shifts happened.
