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 Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

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

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
