• Review - Tweet Cute by Emma Lord | Spoilers!

    Ok, I take back everything I've ever said about YA contemporary. Well, not really, but for the sake of this book I take it all back and I'll put it back later. This was a super cute little book and given I wasn't expecting much, I was blown away. The MCs Pepper and Jack aren't just cardboard cutouts, the typical 'outside girl' or 'hot guy'. They each have their issues, insecurities, and character traits that make them more than the stereotypical YA teen. Spoiler warning!! First of all, I loved t…

  • Review - City of Wishes by Rachel Morgan | Spoilers!

    So I audiobooked this one, listening to it as a 6 part story. Where do I begin... SPOILERS!! Alright, now we've gone past the spoiler warning, here are the good points: I liked the magic system. I liked the idea that the fae all had a certain level of power and that wishes were physical things that could be traded/bought/etc. The whole fairy godmother being a wish granter like she's some magical drug dealer with the power and fear-inducing reputation of a mafia boss was great (despite that endi…

  • Review - The Simple Wild by K.A.Tucker | Spoilers!

    I'm going to put this one at 3 stars. It was enjoyable enough but I felt like there was something missing. So before I get into it, here's your warning: SPOILERS!! Right, so let's get into it... First of all, you meet Calla - a 25year-old living at home who gets pretty much everything paid for her (house, bills, etc). In other words, a teenager with a salary. She comes across as a bit self-absorbed and has some serious daddy issues given that apparently her dad didn't care enough to ever come vi…

  • Review - The Royally Series by Emma Chase | No Spoilers

    I listened to book 1 - 3 of this series (albeit in the wrong order 2,3,1 - oops) and I had the most fun with these books. They're the sexy kind of romance, so usually I don't expect much beyond the regular tropes of this genre, but I was pleasantly surprised. Usually these types of books are plagued with the 'misunderstanding' trope or the 'miscommunication' trope, which generally annoys the absolute bejeesus out of me, but these held off on that, instead heading in directions I found actually b…

  • Review - A Tale of Stars and Shadow (A Tale of Stars and Shadow, #1) by Lisa Cassidy | Spoiler-free

    **Review also on Goodreads** So the reason I didn't give this 5 stars was that the pace for me was a bit slower than what I generally like - I'm not really one for the slow burn but otherwise this book was fabulous! The protagonist, Talyn, is a broken warrior/princess (although, she's a badass, slit-your-throat-with-her-sai type princess) who is sent on a vague and mysterious mission to train up a protection detail for the youngest prince of a neighbouring country. Also, there is a shadowy Robin…
