“”Maybe I could have liked you. Maybe we could have been friends.” It flowed out of me as if I had already dreamed it. “Maybe, if I was just me and dreamwalkers had never been hunted, I could have overheard you playing this old music and realized it was the same music I loved . . . and maybe we could have got talking about it over coffee. If we’d met in another world.””
Wow I really missed these characters!! I love Paige and Warden so much I cannot wait for the fourth book, The Mask Falling, to come out next February. So excited!! This was a great addition to the series and even though I wish it had been longer, I enjoyed this novella very much.
“He snatched up the reins again, holding her tight. There was nothing affectionate or remotely romantic about the gesture; it was desperation, like a man clinging to a ledge. “We run.”“
I was very excited to read this one, but unfortunately, it didn’t really live up to my expectations. 2.5 stars.
Extra bummed, because that cover is so pretty 🙁.
“Some dreams really do come true. That said, most dreams are weird as shit.”
I enjoyed this second installment of Saga just as much as the first! The artwork continues to blow me away with how gorgeous and strange it is, and the story is growing with some really interesting new worldbuilding.
“Love and hate are visceral. Your stomach twists at the thought of that person. The heart in your chest beats heavy and bright, nearly visible through your flesh and clothes. Your appetite and sleep are shredded. Every interaction spikes your blood with a dangerous kind of adrenaline, and you’re on the brink of fight or flight. Your body is barely under your control. You’re consumed, and it scares you.”
This one was pretty good. Cute, surprisingly touching in certain areas, and funny. Overall, it was solid and I enjoyed it. However, for some reason I just didn’t connect with the romance all that much. I liked the characters well enough and really felt for them during some scenes, but I just never 100% committed to them. Three stars.
“He fit so perfectly in the love story I’d imagined for myself that I mistook him for the love of my life.”
Oh my gosh I loved this.
“If a man wants to leave you, wave goodbye and lock the doors. You’ve got better things to do than chase a lost cause.”
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this one at first, but it ended up being a really heartwarming and fun read. The premise was something new to me and I enjoyed my time with this book. 3.5 stars!
“Because, my lord, if the marchioness believes that the female brain is incapable of forming a sound analysis on political issues, why should anyone trust her analysis on women in politics?”
I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know how I’d feel about this one going into it. But hey, it was available at the library and SO MANY people seem to love it so, why not? HAHAHAHA
I’m sorry, but, it was really quite terrible. 1.5 stars 😬.
“Don’t bother unpacking the rest,” she said, tearing the lease in half. “I’m kicking you out now.”
She was almost as strong willed and stubborn as he was. But he had much better taste in furniture.
He snorted a laugh. “I’d like to see you try.”
“I’m sure you would,” she snapped. “It’s probably the only way you can get a woman near you with that giant ego in the way.”
“I’m hardly lacking for female companionship.”
Layla rolled her eyes in an overly dramatic fashion. “I’m not interested in hearing about your visits to the nail bar. I just want you gone.”
“It’s not going to happen, sweetheart. I have the document in digital form, and the law on my side.”
Number one, I love this cover. It’s gorgeous. (Although…the blank face cartoon trend is not my favorite. Poor Layla looks terrible there 😅). Number two, this was really freaking cute. Four stars, yes let’s give it up for well written rom-coms!!!
“Nina had looked around and realized she would never run out of things to read, and that certainty filled her with peace and satisfaction. It didn’t matter what hit the fan; as long as there were unread books in the world, she would be fine.”
This book was a huge disappointment. On paper, it sounded really fun and relatable, something cute and easy to fly through. Unfortunately, though, it was none of those things. Instead, it was cliche, boring, lacking, cringey, and very disappointing. I kind of want to give it 1.5 star now, but my initial gut reaction was 2 stars.
“What I was wondering is, if you too hope we have one of those first dates that turns into days and nights…because we can’t stand to be apart.”
This was an interesting read for me. I went in with set expectations and was taken aback when the book turned out to be quite different. I had some qualms with it, but overall, the parts I liked won out and I gave this book 3.5 stars.
