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 Prince of Broadway (Uptown Girls #2) by Joanna Shupe

Another masterpiece by Jonna Shupe! I loved every second of this book and I am already a third into the next book in the Uptown Girls  series. The Greene sisters are a hoot and the man they fall for can do nothing but be at their mercy.  Blurb: In the second novel in Joanna Shupe's the Uptown Girl series, a ruthless casino owner bent on revenge finds his plans upended by a beautiful woman who proves to be more determined than he is—and too irresistible to deny. Powerful casino owner. Ruthless mastermind. Destroyer of men. He lives in the shadows... As the owner of the city's most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp... until now. She is society's darling... Florence Greene is no one's fool. She knows Clayton Madden is using her to ruin her prestigious family... and she's using him right back. She plans t

The Gilded Ones (Deathless #1) by Namina Forna

There was a time where I loved nothing more than a good YA fantasy. I guess that time is passed... either that or the quality of YA books coming out has fallen. This wasn't a bad book, it just was underwhelming . It has a very good concept, a good start, a good climax point, but everything else felt flat. Deka leaves in fear of the Blood Ceremony Day- the day she finds out if her blood runs pure (red) or if she has gold blood, which is met with a death sentence. Needless to say, her blood runs gold. She is killed again and again just to wake, limbs reattaching themselves... It is a gory and interesting start. I was intrigued as to what she was and where this was going.  Someone from the capital comes an offers her a deal: fight for the emperor with other girls like her or stay at the village being killed until someone figures out how to give her her true death. Let's face it, it is an easy choice.  The book celebrates female friendships, sisterhood! Families from circumstance a

The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle [ALC Review]

  In Five Years by Rebecca Serle was easily one of my favorite reads last year and I was very excited to read this book by her. I am not 100% sure what the exactly release date was but I think the print book was released in 2014 and Simon and Schuster picked up in audio format this year. It was released (re-released?) February 2nd. I listened to this beauty on libro.fm pretty much in one sitting.  The Blurb: Sorrow can be seductive—but can hope triumph over heartbreak? A dark and searing novel from the  New York Times  bestselling author of   In Five Years . Caggie never wanted to be a hero, but some things are decided for us. Growing up among Manhattan’s social elite, Caggie always had everything a girl could want, including a storied last name. But after saving a girl from the brink of suicide, Caggie becomes infamous, and now all she wants is to be left alone. After all, she’s still reeling from the recent death of her younger sister, the subsequent destruction of her relationship
