December wrap-up


13 Books! Considering how busy the month was this was darn good! 🙂


- Sublime by Christina Lauren
(YA fantasy/paranormal/romance) 3.8/5 Great concept! Trouble boy falls for a girl that is not really a girl. Your usual heavy dosage of romance from Christina Lauren with the added bonus of it being a fantasy. Sadly the ending didn't work for me. Full review here

- Turtles all the way down by John Green

(Contemporary) 1/5 For my rant click here . Not going over it again. Sorry folks!

- Unbreakable, Undone and Unforgiven by Rebecca Shea
(New Adult) 4/5 5/5 3/5 I found a new NA author to obsess over. This was a really cute trilogy about three different couples. The first book, Unbreakable is on Jess and Gabe, who grew up together and have their relationship blossom through time, after one sad event their relationship takes a bad turn. I cried a river. Undone is with Landon, who we met in Unbreakable, and Regan. It is my favorite of the three. Landon has a rather broken soul and Regan doesn't give up without a fight. The last book, Unforgiven, was my least favorite, but it was still good. It was on Landon's sister Lindsey and his best friend Matt. Lindsey self destructs, family and friends help her put herself back together. It is suit, just not enough Matt time on the page. Full reviews: Unbreakable Undone

- Traitors Kiss by Erin Beaty
(YA romance/Spy novel) 4.5/5 Cleverly written story with great strong heroine. She is both intelligent and naive, reflecting her age. The romance is adorable and slow burning, starting of as friendship. The perfect spy romance novel for ya lovers. Review here

- Breaking Matt by Regan Ure
(New Adult) 3/5 This was a nice NA novel. But the main character, Sarah, really didn't work for me.  Spoiled girl who uses boys as she pleases. I love Matt, have since we first met him in Loving Bad and I loved him here too, but I wish there was more of him. Our heart of gold bodyguard deserves better than Sarah. Review Here

- Unforgiven by Lauren Kate
(YA fantasy/supernatural)5/5 The fallen series has a special place in my heart, it is the series that got me into reading ya fantasy at an adult age. Cam was my favorite when I read the series but I never got to read his book when it was published two years ago. I am glad I finally read it. It was everything I could have hoped for. Bad boy fallen angel falls in love with a mortal, Lucifer steals her soul...  Review here

- Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer
(YA graphic novel) 4.5/5 I love love Lunar Chronicles, so when I found out about this book on Iko I was excited. It was wonderful to get a little more of our beloved characters, it only felt short in the sense that it was...well... too short! The story did not develop enough.

The next four will be shorter as they were read during Christmas. But all have or will have full reviews in the blog in the coming week!

- Geekerella by Ashley Poston
(Contemporary) 4.75/5 This was utterly adorable. The perfect book for fangirls! Review

- Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popovic
(YA fantasy) 2.5/5 Just about everything in the book was 'middle of the road'. Neither good or bad...  Review

- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
(YA fantasy) 5+/5 Review  AMAZING!

- The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
(YA fantasy) 3/5 Review Not as good as The Wrath and the Dawn but still enjoyable.

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
