{ARC REVIEW} Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

{ARC REVIEW} Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmere..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! Some times there are books that just speak directly to your heart, and this was one of those books for me. Emotionally engaging and heavy-hitting with the angst, Letters to the Lost kept me glued to its pages and rooting for its characters the entire time. ♥ Review: I couldn’t, nor did I even want, to set this book down. I neglected all my adult responsibilities yesterday and just curled up on […]

{Review} Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan

{Review} Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan

  Oh my heart!  It ached, it beat wildly, it rejoiced…it fell in love.  I feel like each and every book I read by Mia Sheridan touches me deeply.  Her characters always live very different lives than the one I’ve experienced, yet she’s able to put me in their shoes.  She has me feeling their sorrows, crying along with them, and feeling their love as if it were my own.  And, once again, she’s done […]

{cover reveal} WISH YOU WERE HERE by Renee Carlino

ICYMI: Renee revealed the never-before-seen cover of WISH YOU WERE HERE (on-sale 8/15/17) *grabby hands*  About the book You know when you’re looking at someone and you can’t help but smile at how oblivious they are to their own charm? That’s what was happening to me, and it was making me feel…happy. Euphoric. Something indescribable. It was like we already knew each other, like we had met in a previous life. Memories that didn’t […]

* Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author via her publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   Oh, Sarina Bowen, you’ve done it again. You’ve written a book that is so painfully sweet, heartbreakingly powerful, and yet so incredibly innocent, that it touched my very soul.  You took me to a world that I knew a little about and pulled back the curtains, showing me […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danielle Mages Amato

{ARC REVIEW} The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danie..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Great characters and an intriguing plot made this book a quick, fun read. With the small incorporation of several genres, I feel like this novel has a bit of something for everyone. ♥ Review: The Hidden Memory of Objects was an entertaining read that can be easily broken down into bullet points to highlight its greatest assets: • 5-star-worthy characters bursting with personality and a heroine that I had little […]

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma Scott

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma S..

I loved this story! This is the 3rd Emma Scott book I have read, and she is 3 for 3 – she writes amazingly deep and emotional love stories that touch me and make my heart full. Both Zelda (I wasn’t a fan of her name but went with it) and Beckett were very broken, and neither from your typical New Adult baggage. Both of them were still strong, trying to live their lives but not doing a very […]

{Review} Naughty by Nature by Addison Moore

{Review} Naughty by Nature by Addison Moore

  If there’s one thing I an count on it’s that I will enjoy every book that I read by Addison Moore.  She’s got the unique ability to write fantasy, contemporary, and romance books and make them all feel like that’s the only thing she does.  This book was everything I imagined it would be…sweet, humorous, romantic, and just a touch naughty.  It’s one of those stories that you read more quickly than you expect […]

{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 Heartbeats of Wing Jones by Katherine Webber

{ARC REVIEW} The Heartbeats of Wing Jones by Kathe..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Diversity and culture were an important factor in this book, just as much as Wing’s journey to realizing her self-worth and discovering that her outward differences made her better and stronger in some ways. The representation of a multitude of diverse characters this book had to offer had me falling in love with this book, but other aspects kept me from falling for it completely. ♥ Review: *long sigh* Damn, […]
