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 Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching

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
