A Court of Thorns and Roses [Sarah J. Maas]; Throwback Thursday

I remember feeling shocked that I really enjoyed this story when I finished it. I had avoided the series for a while after deciding I really didn't like Maas' writing in the first book of her other series. I was pleasantly surprised about how well-done the majority of A Court of Thorns and Roses was. Out of…

The Princess Saves Herself in this One [Amanda Lovelace]; Throwback Thursday

Honestly, I didn't like this book. I know it was incredibly popular--probably still is--but it just seemed so lackluster and very much not a portrayal of decent poetry. My biggest problem with this book lies in the fact that it reads like someone in high school writing poetry even though they don't actually have a…

Stage Kiss [M. F. Lorson]; Throwback Thursday

I liked Stage Kiss by M. F. Lorson way more than I actually thought I would. And, to be fair, I kind of thought this would be one of those guilty pleasure books that I wouldn't really love or ever consider reading again, but wouldn't hate massively. Well, I really enjoyed it in the long run, though I'll…

Spin the Dawn [Elizabeth Lim]; Throwback Thursday

I remember really liking this book at first. And I remember being rather excited about having the ability to read it as an ARC. That's without even thinking about how utterly beautiful the cover is. And, to be fair, Spin the Dawn by Elisabeth Lim is a really good book. The plot was fun, the quest…

Daughter of the Pirate King [Tricia Levenseller]; Throwback Thursday

Ironically, despite the fact that I do recognize Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller as a well-written book, I just did not like it at all. And I think what it came down to for me was character voice. I could not get past how much I hated Alosa. She was massively annoying in…

Arnica the Duck Princess [Ervin Lázár]; Throwback Thursday

I loved this book. It's such a silly cutesy fairy tale, but my gosh was it fun. Arnica the Duck Princess is a wonderful story that I began and finished within the span of a day and spent a good deal of time squealing over. If you've not read it, I feel you're sorely missing out. Now,…

Roomies [Christina Lauren]; Throwback Thursday

As someone who typically does not enjoy romance novels, I have to be honest here and say that I did not expect to like Roomies by Christina Lauren. I was excited when I won an ARC copy of it and liked the plot well enough--I'd recently watched a movie with something similar--so I started reading it…
