I don’t have all that much to say about this one, other than I enjoyed it! Mindy’s contemporary books are almost always a hit for me, which is funny because I’m not usually a fan of contemporary. Even funnier that her fantasy books usually don’t work for me. Her contemps just knock it out of the park! This one felt so realistic, like the events had actually happened. There isn’t really a whole lot going on plot wise for a […]

I’m so sad that I didn’t love this one. The hype for this book is UNREAL! Everyone talks about how beautiful the writing is, but it didn’t wow me. In fact, I found this story to be somewhat dull. I loved the idea of the magic system, but the middle got pretty boring when Lark was in the castle. I didn’t care at all for the romance, either. There was zero chemistry between Lark and Tiras, and it borderlined controlling […]

Before we get into this shit show: THIS IS NOT YA. There is lots of sexual content in this book. If you want an angsty smutty romance with zero plot, LOOK NO FURTHER. WORST case of Second Book Syndrome I’ve read in as long as I can remember. This year must be all about sequels that disappointed me! This one is the worst yet, though. I think this is the single most disappointing sequel I’ve ever read. I loved the […]

Buckle up, ladies and gents. Because I have a LOT of complaints. Firstly, I want to say that I listened to the audiobook, so some of my spellings may be off. I thought the MC was ‘Elsbeth’ for almost the whole book, until I finally looked at the synopsis; so I’m sure the other character names are probably spelled weird too lmao. Secondly, WHY DO I ALWAYS LET THE HYPE MONSTER GET ME?! WHY AM I ALWAYS A BLACK SHEEP?! […]

I honestly don’t remember a darn thing about the second book. I enjoyed the first book for the most part, even though it was generic AF (thanks to the fantastic audiobook narrator, I’m quite sure); but sadly I enjoyed this one a bit less than the first. I did still mostly enjoy it while I was listening, but it felt even more generic than the first book and had a bit of second book syndrome going on. Although, Luca and Ama […]

This was good, not great. It was a quick read, and fairly entertaining, but it felt kind of juvenile to me. I feel like there was more focus on drama and romance than the puzzles we were promised. All of the boys felt like the exact same person (with extra jerkness to Grayson, maybe) and I was continuously having issues telling them apart. I was also confused about the love triangle (square??) and the fact that every freakin’ dude in […]
