Book: The Idea of You by Robin Lee
I’d been in a huge book rut until this book came along. It was so readable and so enjoyable and I couldn’t put it down or stop thinking about it. The downfall was that it was a bit too long, and I got a little tired of them just travelling around the world to be locked in the bedroom for three days. And I had a few other reservations but it was such an enjoyable book that I kind of don’t care, it was nothing that took me out of the experience of reading it. And that ending was just heartbreaking. Definitely looking out for more from Robin Lee, and maybe even more of August Moon!
This book is what I expect a Taylor Jenkins Reid book to be. This is what I expected The Heartbreakers to be. Glad I finally found a book to stand up to expectations.
Book: Rituals by Kelley Armstrong
Overall opinion? Disappointing. I basically skim read the entire thing. Great review here.
Book: Mature Content by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell
Underwhelming. Not a big fan of reading about the drama of you tube celebrities. Good review here.
Book: Crushed by Lauren Layne
This was actually pretty cute. I really liked Chloe, except for the fact she used the word Beefcake like 50 million times (actually 92). Michael was meh. A little mopey. And the last half of the book really dragged. But it was overall very enjoyable and a huge step up from the first book in this series. Unsurprisingly, I didn’t enjoy the cameos at the end.
Book: The Wedding Trap by Adrienne Bell
I picked this book from bookbub because of the synopsis of the made up boyfriend. But I was happily surprised to actually enjoy it because the last few free ebooks I read have been duds. Good review here. Beth was so funny and charming and a really likable heroine. I also really liked Alex. The romance was cute (until they started saying I love you after 3 days). Some of the suspense aspects were pretty meh but the book had enough other things going for it that I really enjoyed it!
Book: Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
It was ok. There’s just something about Cath Crowley’s writing that I don’t connect with. I really liked George and wish the whole book was about her because I didn’t much enjoy Henry or Rachel. The whole book fell really flat for me.
Book: This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills
I’m not sure I liked this book quite as much the second time around, but it was still an excellent read! Highly recommended.
