Review: Lick by Kylie Scott

“Love isn’t always smooth or straightforward. It can be messy and painful … Doesn’t mean it isn’t still the most incredible thing that can ever happen to you.” This book has been sitting on my Netgalley account for a long while and I finally felt in the mood for a rocker romance. Evelyn Thomas never thought that her 21st birthday would be so wild—that is, until she wakes up in the morning with a brand new tattoo and a brand new husband. One that she doesn’t remember marrying, much less meeting. Uh-oh. And turns out that her new hubby is part of Stage Dive—a popular rock band. Of course, Evelyn freaks (like any sane person) but David isn’t happy that she doesn’t remember. She goes home, gets mobbed by the paparazzi, and you cue the drama! Lick was an entertaining read, most certainly. The two characters’ dialogue were funny and the supporting characters were very well written. The plot, for the most part, was well paced. It kept me interested and invested in how Evelyn and David’s story would turn out. Evelyn was an okay character for the most part. I thought she was particularly sane up until the half point of the novel. She then proceeded to get a tad bit needy, out of the blue, and it got a bit annoying from then on out. But that was, […]

Review: Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven

“’Cassie … We’ve never been over. You know it as well as I do. Even when I was halfway around the world and you hated my guts, we weren’t over. You can feel it between us now. And the closer we are, the stronger it gets.’” “Yeah, sure, I can do a passionate play with my ex-lover, who broke my heart not once, but twice. No problem. I bang my head against the wall. If there were a Nation of Stupid People, I would be their queen.” Bad Romeo was a fantastic book. It had a very complicated plot that definitely held my attention. It was told in two time periods, one of the past and one of the present. I thought that, for the most part, it was a nice touch to the plot line, because we were constantly seeing what was wrong between the characters that occurred in the past, and at the same time, we were privy to how they were working it out in the present. I really enjoyed reading it but as I got further and further the percentage read got higher and higher and we weren’t moving towards a conclusion. I’m sad to say that there wasn’t really one. It was an abrupt cut off that ruined the fantastic flow that this novel had kept up for the entire duration. It was really a […]

Review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Favorite Quote(s): “Nothing was dirty. With Park. Nothing could be shameful. Because Park was the sun, and that was the only way Eleanor could think to explain it.” “’I look like a hobo?’ ‘Worse,’ he said. ‘Like a sad hobo clown.’ ‘And you like it?’ ‘I love it.’ As soon as he said it, she broke into a smile. And when Eleanor smiled, something broke inside of him. Something always did.” Favorite Character: …Park. But that’s a hard one! First Line: “XTC was no good for drowning out the morons at the back of the bus.” My Musings: I have been hearing fantastic things about Eleanor and Park ever since it came out. I’ve not had time to read it until recently, and I must say, it was a very unique book. Eleanor and Park was unlike anything that I have ever read before. For one, it was set in the eighties, which was a little bit upsetting for me. I didn’t understand any of the references made throughout the novel, being a late nineties baby myself. Other than that, it was about two misfits–Eleanor and Park. It was about them falling in love and all of the hardships that came with it. It is perhaps one of the most realistic novels that I have read to date. I could seriously imagine the plot of this novel playing out in real life. […]

Review: Whispers at Moonrise by C.C. Hunter

Favorite Quote(s): “John rose to his feet and apologized to Holiday. Her mom seethed. Her dad tried to talk to her seething mom. Holiday tried to touch everyone. Burnett continued to glare green daggers at John, proving how hard it was for a vampire to accept an apology. Not that she blamed him. Kill him. Kill him. She cheered the vampire on. Lucas hadn’t stopped scowling at Derek and Derek hadn’t stopped ignoring Lucas.” Favorite Character: Kylie. She’s just a strong character. First Line: “Kylie Galen stood on the porch outside the Shadow Falls office, panic stabbing at her sanity.” My Musings: Whispers at Moonrise was another great installment in the Shadow Falls Series. In this novel, we follow Kylie in her search to find out what exactly she is, and what her father meant when he told her that she was a chameleon. Hunter’s writing in this novel was great, just as the previous books. Hunter’s writing was descriptive and personable, and it enabled the reader to relate directly with Kylie. I really enjoyed Kylie’s character. She’s strong willed and determined to find out what she is. She makes sacrifices for this information, and yet she plows on. She’s a headstrong and intelligent character, and the way she acts and matures over the novel is admirable. Another character that I like is Della. She’s protective and somewhat rude, but I […]
