{ARC REVIEW} This is How it Happened by Paula Stokes

{ARC REVIEW} This is How it Happened by Paula Stok..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4-4.5 stars! The messages revealed throughout the course of this book are one-hundred-percent the driving force of this novel, but I can’t deny that I loved the characters, the setting, and the family dynamics that became just as integral. Ms. Stokes continues to impress me with her range as a writer and has definitely cemented herself among my auto-read-author pile. I think everyone needs to read this book! ♥ Review: I believe Ms. Stokes […]

{ARC Review} Secondborn (Secondborn #1) by Amy A. Bartol

{ARC Review} Secondborn (Secondborn #1) by Amy A. ..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the Author but that did not in any way influence this review!   Epic. Captivating. Blockbuster.  Need I say more? Once again, Ms. Bartol has created a world with such depth and creativity that I’m left in awe of her skill.  The dystopian society that she’s fashioned in this story is rich with detail and complexity, and so very very vivid.  Once you enter this […]

{top shelf review} Luca (Ruin & Revenge #2) by Sarah Castille

{top shelf review} Luca (Ruin & Revenge #2) b..

This book, omg THIS BOOK!! I loved Luca it. The intensity of…everything! It started with the attraction between Luca and Gabrielle which was dark, deadly, passionate and consuming. It made me feel alive the same way it did Gabrielle. I could feel the crackle in the air the second I met them. The first glance, Luca right off the bat admitted his attraction/interest/infatuation with Gabriel, and I like that she straight up went to go see him […]

{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 […]

{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 […]

{ARC REVIEW} Between Two Skies by Joanne O’Sullivan

{ARC REVIEW} Between Two Skies by Joanne O’S..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars, could possibly be bumped up to 3.5 stars later upon further reflection. Ms. O’Sullivan did a lot of things right in this book, like capturing the Louisiana setting and the voice of teen girl caught in the devastating aftermath of one of the most significant natural disasters on record, but my inability to be emotionally present for the moment proved to be my biggest hurdle with this book. Ultimately, that struggle is what […]

{TOP SHELF MINI REVIEW} A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas

{TOP SHELF MINI REVIEW} A Court of Wings and Ruin ..

  ♥ Review: I’m sure if you’re an avid reader or if you’ve been following my reviews for any period of time, then you know about Sarah J. Maas and her books, particularly this series. (If not, no worries, I just highly recommend you rectify that and then come back later to thank me.) Okay, so this book, it published ten days ago and it was an act of sheer will that I didn’t pounce on it […]

{ARC Review} Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

{ARC Review} Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author’s publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   This was a fun contemporary romance that provided me with all the hilarity and sizzle I expect from Ms. Hunting.  The characters are easy to love and the storyline is just right if you’re looking for romance and sexy times with not too much angst.  Unlike many books I’ve read lately, […]

{ARC REVIEW} Kill All Happies by Rachel Cohn

{ARC REVIEW} Kill All Happies by Rachel Cohn

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! With a sassy heroine and her two tried-and-true, Cuddle Huddle besties, the wrong guy, the right guy, and one last post-graduation celebratory hoorah at a theme park set for demolition, Kill All the Happies had me anticipating the worst but relishing in all the epicness of the best of times in this story that kept me laughing and turning the pages. I couldn’t have predicted how awesome […]
