{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 […]

{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 […]

{Review} Glass Faerie (Creepy Hollow #7) by Rachel..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author but that did not in any way influence this review!   I loved everything about this story…the adventure, the characters, the magic..all of it.  It captured my attention and imagination immediately.  With this book, I returned to Creepy Hollow for the seventh time and, even though I’m intimate with this place and its inhabitants,  this book felt fresh and new…yet, also like coming […]

{Top Shelf ARC REVIEW} Avenged (Ruined #2) by Amy ..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! Heart-stopping action, surprising swoons, and badass girls and guys made this book an epic ride from beginning to end.  Once I finally got to settle in, I didn’t stop until I was closing my kindle. I need the last installment as soon as humanly possible. ♥ Review: Ms. Tintera slays it every time. When I was first starting this sequel, I was worried because I felt a little lost […]

{ARC REVIEW} Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner

{ARC REVIEW} Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3.5 stars! Enriched with Russian folklore and a girl that knew her way around a bow-and-arrow and came equipped with an ax, Spooner certainly took creative liberties in this darker retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Sprinkled throughout the storyline were lessons on life, love, and our wants for unfulfilled desires, and how sometimes what we want has been right in front of us all along. While I definitely enjoyed their strength of […]

*Note:  This book was provided to  The Book Hookup by the Publisher but that did not in any way influence this review.     Have you ever completely understood why something had to happen yet your heart still fought it? Me too. This book moves the story forward in a couple of different ways and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed this story…it has character growth, […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Great Pursuit (Eurona Duology #2) by Wendy Higgins

{ARC REVIEW} The Great Pursuit (Eurona Duology #2)..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Filled with fun characters, action and intensity, and surprises around every corner, The Great Pursuit was a great finale to a solidly plotted duology. ♥ Review: There’s really not much detail that I can go into about this novel because so much that I have to say/want to flail about revolves around the characters and the plot would spoil so much for other readers. I will say that I […]

{Top Shelf ARC REVIEW} The Wish Granter (Ravenspir..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! The Wish Granter is Rumpelstiltskin like you’ve never envisioned him before, yet he still carries that sinister edge we learned to expect from him from our younger days. Told in alternating third person between our cunning heroine, the broken hero, and our vicious fae villain, this book will take you on an enchanting tale that rides the precarious balance between the ruthless and the valiant . . .and how sometimes you […]
