Mini Reviews: The Bedlam Stacks by Natasha Pulley, Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

My Thoughts: The Bedlam Stacks is something I thought I’d really enjoy! I had seen good reviews and it sounded like a really beautiful fantasy story. Unfortunately this one missed the mark for me. The writing is good, I will say that. The descriptions are beautiful and the world is unique. However, I felt zero connection to the main character and as a result, honestly didn’t care about his journey or mission. In fact, I quickly […]

The Leaving by Tara Altebrando

Why Did I Read? I’m all for thrillers. I like the suspense and this sounded super intriguing: I mean, missing kids, missing memories… I was excited to read this! My Thoughts: This story is told in different POVs, some in the POV of some of the returned missing kids and one from the sister of the kid that didn’t return. I thought it was a really interesting concept. However… this one didn’t really work for me. […]

I felt like this one had a lot […]

Review: Part Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates

My Thoughts: This book was seriously right up my alley. Small town romance. A part time cowboy and part time sheriff. I should have loved it. But unfortunately, this one missed the mark for me. Sadie decides to face her past and return to her hometown after years of running away. She decides to try and force herself to stay by signing a five year long lease to run a bed and breakfast. Coincidentally, the bed and […]

Audiobook Review: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

Audiobook Review: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

The Sound: I think it was a mistake for me to listen to this one on audio… the whiny aspect of the main character Anna was magnified by actually hearing it. At about 72% I switched over to reading it on my kindle because the MC’s personality grated on me so much and the audio was exacerbating how I felt. The Story: You know, I’ve heard so much about this series and so much about swoony […]
