Review: The Fallen Star – Jessica Sorensen

Review: The Fallen Star – Jessica Sorensen

Very, very slow-moving story, the characters are not very well developed, and the writing is full of repetitions. The Fallen Star could have told the same story exactly in only 150 pages, and then be the introduction to the series, rather than a full-length novel where nothing much happened in the first 70-75%. Not sure I’ll continue with this one. My The Fallen Star review: The premise for The Fallen Star is so good, unfortunately, I didn’t think the story delivered. Gemma was an annoying heroine, even when taking into account the fact that she has lived most of her life without having any feelings at all. Her swooning over Alex made me roll my eyes more than once, and […]

Review: The Boys of Summer – C.J. Duggan

Review: The Boys of Summer – C.J. Duggan

The Boys of Summer is the perfect summer romance: first love, coming of age, growing up, it was such an uplifting and sweet story that made me long for the summers I spent on a small island when I was a teen. My Boys of Summer review: First of all, a big thank you to Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee, because she has talked about this series for a long time, and a while ago, I won the books in a giveaway on her blog. I’m so glad I finally read it! Tess is a really great character to follow, the story Boys of Sumer is written in first person point of view, and I really loved to get to know […]

Review: Five Weeks – Dannika Dark

Review: Five Weeks – Dannika Dark

Bad-ass shifters – and an amazing female MC made Five Weeks an amazing read! My Five Weeks review: Five Weeks includes everything I love in Ms. Dark’s UF universe! There is romance and a lot of tension, characters that seem very real with flaws and qualities, an amazing story and a well-executed plot. The writing is really good, mostly from Izzy’s point of view, first person, in past tense, but with some third person passages as well. It was a true pleasure to get to know Jericho better, he intrigued me quite a bit in both Seven Years and Six Months, with his distant way of interacting with his brothers in the Weston household. Izzy also appealed to me from the […]

Review: Six Months – Dannika Dark

Review: Six Months – Dannika Dark

Six Months follows April and Reno, and with all of April’s problems, I kept wishing she would do the smart thing and tell her close friends what was going on with her. My Six Months review: Six Months definitely had big shoes to fill, because I have truly loved all of Ms. Dark’s other stories, and Seven Years was actually one of my favourite books of 2013. If you say gritty UF / Paranormal romance, I will say ‘yes please, pretty please, with sugar on top!’ And I really enjoy the shifters and the whole universe that is part of both the Seven series and the Mageri series. Alexis was present in Six Months as well, and her character development […]

Blogtour, Gievaway and Review: Carrots – Colleen Helme

*I received a free ARC of Carrots from Enchantress of Books Blogtours in exchange of an honest review* Carrots is a fun contemporary read, about what happens to Shelby just because she stopped her car to run and get some carrots. After being shot in the head, she quickly realizes that she can hear other peoples’ thoughts! And it’s very hard for her in the beginning to not answer the questions her family only ask in their heads. It is also difficult for her to not be upset when she hears her husband’s thoughts about how she looks, or why he is so happy she didn’t die… Shelby quickly gets into trouble because of her new ability, especially when it […]
