{Blog Tour} Royally Matched (Royally #2) by Emma C..

{ARC REVIEW} The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

{ARC REVIEW} The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I can’t imagine how challenging it would be to tackle the voice of a movement like Black Lives Matter, but I do know that Thomas did it with a finesse only a talented author like herself possibly could. With an unapologetically realistic delivery packed with emotion, The Hate U Give is a crucially important portrayal of the difficulties minorities face in our country every single day. I have no doubt that […]

{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 […]

{ARC Review} Nova (The Renegades #2) by Rebecca Ya..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher via Net Galley but that did not in any way influence this review.   The struggle is real.  The heartbreak, the angst, the undeniable attraction, the romance, the uncertainty, the love…they’re all real!  This story grabbed my emotions and held them hostage – I couldn’t be sure from one page to the next whether I’d be smiling or sobbing.  There was heartache and […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher via Net Galley but that did not in any way influence this review!   Might as well get right to the point here…I loved Felix and Juliet’s story.  And, even though I’ve read this type of book before (and I also guessed the twist), this was one of those rare books where that didn’t matter at all.  I still wished it was 100 […]

{5-star ARC REVIEW} The Dragon’s Price (Tran..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I started this book as one of those books just to read before bed one night until I fell asleep, except that I fell completely under its spell from the very beginning and read straight through the night until I finished it after 3AM. I couldn’t stop swiping the pages on my kindle, even when my blinks turned into three-minute-long catnaps. I don’t normally give up my sleep for anything, […]

{ARC REVIEW} Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: ALL THE STARS! I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK HARD! A feisty, quick-witted kick-ass pirate captain heroine pitted against a rival pirate captain’s first mate set in a world of sea monsters and pirate treachery made this book one heck of an adventurous ride. I would have read this all in one sitting had I lost the ability to keep my eyes open at 2AM, but I jumped back on it as soon […]

{Review} My Peace (Beautifully Broken #5) by Court..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author but that did not in any way influence this review!   My Peace is a novella and, if you know me, you know that I almost always feel like I need more from these short books.  But, truthfully, this story it’s so full of angst, heartbreak, and hope that I was left very satisfied…and exhausted.  We met Pax in If You Stay, the […]
