{ARC REVIEW:} The Season of You & Me by Robin Constantine

{ARC REVIEW:} The Season of You & Me by Robin Constantine

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! The Season of You & Me was a novel that spoke of heart and healing, and potentially finding love in the least expected moments. It was a beach-y summer book perfect for beach-y summer weather. A quick read filled with equal parts fluff and angst that I read all in one sitting, complete with a smile on my face at the end. ♥ Review: Told in alternating dual perspectives, we learn the story […]

{ARC REVIEW} Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods

{ARC REVIEW} Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: ALL THE STARS EVER! Especially those brilliantly bright supernovas! For me, this novel is one of those rare books that feels like it was written just for you. You vibe with the book, you fall in love with the author, and it all feels very serendipitous and magical. Perhaps even fated! Summer of Supernovas is one of my special book unicorns. Each page is infused with heart and humor. The characters are charming and […]

{ARC REVIEW} Whisper to Me by Nick Lake

{ARC REVIEW} Whisper to Me by Nick Lake

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 2 stars! Sadly, I feel like the synopsis was a bit misleading and the plot of the story was a lot more complicated than a girl finding herself and writing an apology letter to a guy whose heart she broke. I can’t deny that certain aspects of this novel held great readability potential since I did read it all in one sitting, but after that conclusion, I’m left with a very bitter aftertaste. I’m […]

{ARC REVIEW} Wild Swans by Jessica Spotswood

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! I don’t think I knew exactly what to expect going in to this novel other than a good book because it was so completely different from Spotswood’s paranormal trilogy, The Cahill Witch Chronicles, where I originally fell in love with this author’s storytelling abilities and words. But I was right about the “good book” bit because this author’s first venture into young adult contemporary was nothing short of captivating. Wild Swans was an emotional tale […]

{ARC REVIEW} Ruined (Ruined #1) by Amy Tintera

{ARC REVIEW} Ruined (Ruined #1) by Amy Tintera

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I fell in love with Tintera’s debut duology, Reboot and Rebel, so I’m not going to lie to you, my expectations were set pretty high entering this first installment of her new fantasy trilogy. I’d say more than anything, not only was I surprised (but not too surprised) to learn that she could and would meet those high expectations, but clearly a little mystified that she was able to flat-out surpass them, if I’m being perfectly honest. After […]

{ARC REVIEW} Flamecaster (Shattered Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars! Oh man, these kind of reviews are always such a struggle for me to write; the books were it was good, but didn’t blow me away or suck either. The short of it is this: I felt like that lone stranger at the party missing out on all the inside jokes and shared memories. I wanted to love this, even though I hadn’t read the original adult series this […]
