I've been so bad about reviewing books that are not ARC's. I'm taking a minute to drop a few lines about some of the other books I've read lately. It's going to be short and sweet. I was in the minority and didn't really love her last book. This one sounded so good that I … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston, Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean, & Starfish by Lisa Fipps
I really think this book being so short did not do it any favors. I really wanted so much more from this. Everything felt really fast and kind of forced. I had such a hard time with Zuri. She's kind of unlikable and she's more judgmental than anyone. It's her thing.. that people judge them … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: Pride, & From Twinkle, With Love!
I had a lot of hopes for this book and it kind of disappointed me. There are a lot of cute things about this story and I did enjoy most of my time with it. It was a really fast read but I think there was a bit of substance missing. I would have liked … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: The Dating Plan, With the Fire on High, & Amari and the Night Brothers!
I have to say that this was very enlightening and I think I like her a lot more than I did. She does so much for immigrants and lower income families. I did think that she just read straight from the book but that's okay. I really liked getting to know her better and what … Continue reading Audio Mini-Reviews: The Truths We Hold, Greenlights, I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are!
“For the boat rockers, the rulebreakers, and the troublemakers. No one ever became a legend by blending in.” I had been putting this one off for so long. I will admit that because it was more of a western had me hesitant to pick it up. Thankfully, Whitney @ WhitReadsLit suggested a buddy read and … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: My Calamity Jane by Hand and Layla by Colleen Hoover
This was a recommendation to fill out a challenge prompt. This is my first book by Haddix and it was a really quick read. It is intended for a much younger audience and it's apparent. It was quite simplistic in plot and character development but I did enjoy my time with it. I was really … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: Fangirl vol. 1, Running out of Time, Stage Dreams, & Twenty-one Truths about Love.
It's been a few weeks since I've finished this one. I have dropped my rating from 3.5 to 3 stars. This one was just an okay read for me. I loved Mina's story 100% more than Margot's. I actually found myself quite annoyed with Margot several times. The amount of times she talks about how … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: The Last Story of Mina Lee & The Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes
I'm so grateful that I've been able to do audiobooks lately. I'm still only able to do memoirs but it's helped me with this slump! I really enjoyed listening to this one! I saw someone post about this and it sounded great. I had no idea that these ladies had a podcast!! I loved how … Continue reading Mini-Reviews: Recent Audiobooks!
