Review: The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) – Julie Kagawa

*I received a free ARC of The Immortal Rules from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I don’t even know where to start in my praise for The Immortal Rules. I loved every single thing about it. The world-building was extremely well done, I could see the gritty, half-rotten buildings in my mind. I could smell the mold, and my stomach was churning with hunger. Both the character-driven story and the way the plot moved forward was expertly done as well. I felt connected to several of the characters, not only the main ones, they were well fleshed out and it was actually possible to understand their motivations. Even when I didn’t agree with their thinking, […]

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

*I received a free ARC of Beautiful Bastard from Gallery Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* Beautiful Bastard starts out with angry sex in the very first chapter. Chloe is talking to herself quite a lot in her own head, which some might find endearing, but I found that pretty annoying. For the first two thirds of the story, I thought both Chloe and Bennett were pretty much one-dimensional. The only thing we get to know about them is that they love to tell each other off – just before having rough sex in inappropriate places.
