Book 34: The Idea of You

Book: The Idea of You by Robin Lee
Rating: 4/5

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. ┬áDefinitely 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 31: Crushed

Book: Crushed by Lauren Layne
Rating: 3.5/5

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 30: The Wedding Trap

Book: The Wedding Trap by Adrienne Bell
Rating:3/5

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 29: Words in Deep Blue

Book: Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
Rating: 3/5

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.
