Review: The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

Review: The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

The Fault in Our Stars was recommended to me several times during the past year, and I just never really got to it. I’m really glad I have now, though, I loved it! Every single word on the page made sense to me.

Review: I Do… Or Die – Donna Cummings

Review: I Do… Or Die – Donna Cummings

*I got a free ARC of I Do… Or Die from Manic Readers in exchange of an honest review* This review was first posted at Risqué Reviews on November 28th. I Do… Or Die starts the action with the very first phrase. The wedding happens at the beginning, the gunshots hurt the bride, and there is mayhem in the church, while Shelby dives to cover her best friend, Alexa. Luckily, Alexa is not badly hurt, but she has to stay a few days in the hospital while her new(est) husband Jordan is fretting. The meeting between Ryan and Shelby in the hospital is funny, and she feels attracted to him straight away. But on edge about the shooting, and her […]

Review: A Mother’s Promise – Anna Schmid

*I received a free ARC of A Mother’s Promise from Barbour Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Rachel Kaufmann is part of the old order Mennonites, and after her husband’s death life is very difficult both for her and her son Justin, as her brother-in-law Luke is very strict, and thinks he should order both her and her son around now that James is no longer there to take care of them.

Review: When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) – Brenda Novak

Review: When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) – Brenda Novak

*I received a free ARC of When Snow Falls from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* I just love the Whiskey Creek series and When Snow Falls is no exception! It is well written, with fleshed-out characters who try to do the best they can with what life has given them. I was happy to have this after I finished When Lightning Strikes, so I could continue with this universe straight away!

Review: Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) – Sarah Rees Brennan

Review: Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) – Sarah Rees Brennan

Unspoken is a book I actually have a lot of trouble rating and reviewing. On one hand, I love the author, her sense of humor and her writing. On the other hand, I had a very hard time connecting with any of the characters here, even though they all had both positive and negative character traits.

Point of Retreat (Slammed #2) – Colleen Hoover

Point of Retreat (Slammed #2) – Colleen Hoover

*I received a free ARC of Point of Retreat from Simon & Schuster via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* Oh my, what an emotional roller coaster this was! Even more so than Slammed, if that is even possible. Will is still just as amazing, he’s the best male character in YA ever. And Lake is awesome as well. I just can’t get enough of these two and their little brothers as well as their merry band of friends. My heart was broken this time, too, and I was crying so hard for a while my head was hurting! I felt like I was one of the characters in the book – I was really there the whole time […]
