{ARC Review} Sugar and Gold (Dreamcatcher #2) by E..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the Publisher via Net Galley but that did no in any way influence this review!   This is a story about two very tortured souls.  It’s about finding that special place to call home and that person who brings you peace and helps you take control of your life.  This book brought all the emotions – some serious highs and lows.  So, for me, it […]

{ARC REVIEW} Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

{ARC REVIEW} Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars! Even though I desperately tried to manage my expectations for this novel because Crowley’s Graffiti Moon is one of my all-time favorites, I fear I missed the mark. I almost want to cry because I didn’t love this more. It’s not that it’s a terrible book by any stretch of the imagination because I enjoyed it quite a bit, it’s just that it didn’t hold a candle to her previous […]

{ARC Review} Stay (WAGs #2) by Sarina Bowen and El..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the authors’ publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   I’m always all kinds of happy when I have a Sarina Bowen or Elle Kennedy book in my hands…but, a book by both of them, well, that’s pure magic!  These two write stories with the perfect balance of swoon, humor, and realism.  Their characters feel like real people I’d like to […]

{ARC Review} I Knew You Were Trouble (Oxford #4) b..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher via NetGalley but that did not in any way influence this review!   This enemies-to-more story was a quick, enjoyable read.  Two characters who were loaded down with baggage and secrets slowly learn that maybe their dislike of each other wasn’t really hate after all.  And, in the time it takes for them to figure it out, the reader is treated to some […]

{ARC REVIEW} One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

{ARC REVIEW} One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManu..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars, but I might even boost it to 4.5–maybe even 5 stars–at some point. I’m just going off pure post-book-high at the moment, and my gut is telling me four stars, though I’m not quite sure what caused the deduction. Highly engaging with an interesting plot and a dynamic cast of characters, One of Us Is Lying had me picking up this book with every free moment I had to spare. And […]

{review} In His Hands (Blank Canvas #3) by Adriana Anders

{review} In His Hands (Blank Canvas #3) by Adriana..

This read was different than the usual New Adult romance I tend to find myself picking up. I am drawn to characters with baggage and difficult pasts they have to overcome and I hadn’t read a religious cult one yet. It definitley had a different feel to the whole story, almost an innocence so huge it was hard to wrap my brain around since the members of the cult were so isolated. I don’t know […]

{ARC REVIEW} Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts

{ARC REVIEW} Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! I enjoyed the diversity among the characters and a few of the friendship/family dynamics between some of them, but I guess I expected more from the book… of sorts. For it to be pushed as fantasy, I think I missed the incorporation of certain particulars I’ve grown accustomed to getting with that genre, namely strong world-building. I’d definitely label this title as more fantasy-lite. With that said, I did enjoy the book […]
