*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher through NetGalley but that did not in any way influence this review!!   I’ve been a fan of Amy Bartol’s writing since I devoured her very first book.  But I must say, impossible as it seems, her writing gets better and better with each subsequent novel.  Ms. Bartol’s attention to detail, fabulous characters, her way of keeping the reader invested in the plot…all […]

{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} Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor

{ARC REVIEW} Definitions of Indefinable Things by ..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 2 stars! Sadly, I knew very early on (like, by page six or so) that this title just wasn’t going to work for me. Yet, much to my amazement–and utter frustration–I just couldn’t walk away from it. It had some positive aspects that I really wanted to have outshone all the negative, however that was never really the case for me. ♥ Review: Generally, I’m not in the business of being an asshole […]

{5-star ARC REVIEW- book published 10/18/2016} Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

{5-star ARC REVIEW- book published 10/18/2016} Gem..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 amazingly brilliant stars, but only because I can’t give it more! (Seriously, give me multi-verses filled with galaxies upon galaxies worth of stars and I would throw them at their feet!) I feel like I’d can’t properly formulate the words, much less sentences, to give this book the adequate praise it so deserves. Just do yourself a favor and depart from this gibberish masquerading as a review and go buy […]

The Remnant Chronicles Read-Along Post: The Beauty of Darkness Review

The Remnant Chronicles Read-Along Post: The Beauty..

  ♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! This book was a brilliant conclusion to this beloved trilogy and an excellent read all on its own. I loved seeing the final evolution of the series arc and how far these characters have come as a unit and as individuals. I wouldn’t call it exactly “perfect” because I wanted just a tad more from the ending, but it was super satisfying! ♥ Review: With this being the final installment of […]

{ARC REVIEW} And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1) by Kiersten White

{ARC REVIEW} And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1)..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars! And I Darken frustrated me to no end, bored me at times, kept me riveted and inspired at others, and finally left me floundering when trying to write out a review for it. If I could break it down, Lada as a character would easily get 5 stars, the first half would get 1 or 2 stars, and the last quarter of the book would be flirting with another 5-star rating. That’s why, ultimately, […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Crown’s Game (The CrownR..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars! The Crown’s Game was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and I was so sad when it didn’t live up to the expectations I had built for it in my head. While the magic involved was fanciful and the setting was grandiose, the slow pacing and quick romance were enough to pull down my rating. ♥ Review: I’m in a rough patch book-wise, I suppose. This is the third […]

{ARC REVIEW:} The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen

{ARC REVIEW:} The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Kon..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 2.5 stars! This book wasn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination because I did feel the need to see how things played out and read the book in its entirety as opposed to calling it quits. However, my inability to connect with the characters definitely played a major role in my lower rating, which is quite a shame because after I read the book synopsis, I felt like this book had enough […]

{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} Dreamology by Lucy Keating

{ARC REVIEW} Dreamology by Lucy Keating

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Dreamology is a daydreamer’s paradise. It’s a story where the mystery of paranormal-esque moments unite with the beauty of everyday life in a magical way that allows two great characters to take the grand love out of their dreams and find it in their waking hours. The premise of this novel and that very pretty cover had me racing to download this novel from Edelweiss. While a majority of what […]
