Review: A Court of Mist and Fury

A Court of Mist and Fury A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Feyre survived the last enemy but the consequences of her decisions are now catching up with her. Though she is no longer human, her emotion still are and they are in turmoil in more ways than one. Torn between facing what she had to do under the mountain to free the Fae and the man she loved, she now has to deal with all of those feelings and turns to the one person no one expects.

Definitely going on my favorites list! If I thought I was blown away by the first one, this one surpassed it! There was so much build up and tension between the characters. I loved how to the story took a turn that I was not expecting from the last one. (view spoiler)

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

Feyre, the provider for her family, has spent her life fearing the Fae on the other side of the wall. She has heard the gruesome stories but when faced with a decision that could feed her family she takes it. That decision brings on the full force of the Fae when Tamlin takes her in retribution for killing one of his own. But Tamlin is not exactly what Feyre is expecting and neither is the world she now finds herself in.

I was surprising blown away by this book. I am not a huge lover of reading about fairies but I was enthralled with this story. I absolutely loved the characters and their heartfelt, 'real' interactions. I got the world, I could see it in my mind and I felt like I was experiencing the story right along with Feyre.

Review: The Hunt

The Hunt The Hunt by Megan Shepherd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars

Trapped again. Cora feels betrayed by the one she thought she trusted but she is still having conflicting feelings about him too. While everyone gets separated, they have to figure out how to survive and ultimately come together to make it through.

I really like the first 75% of this book. There were a few surprises at the end and some events that I didn't like. I wanted to like Cora more than I did, I was disappointed in her. I wanted a different outcome for her.

I felt a lot of emotion while reading this book so the author really did a great job of immersing the reader into her world. (view spoiler)

Personally some of this book was hard to get through. (view spoiler)

I am really excited to see how this is all going to play out.

Review: Silk and Shadows

Silk and Shadows Silk and Shadows by Mary Jo Putney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Peregrine, a wealthy and handsome man from a foreign land, wants revenge. Revenge on the man that wronged him so many years ago. He will do anything to get it, which is exactly when Lady Sara St. James comes across his path. Even though she is in his path of destruction there is something about her that peaks his interest and makes her irresistible.

I loved this book! I do have to say there was one part that I really didn't like between Peregrine and Sara but other than that I was captured by the story and the characters. Even with going through so much in his life Peregrine was able to have a broader outlook on people and vice versa Sara opened her heart to Peregrine and accepted him even with his past.

Review: Wild Sweet Ecstasy

Wild Sweet Ecstasy Wild Sweet Ecstasy by Jo Goodman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While on a train reporter, Mary Michael Dennehy, is caught in the middle of a robbery. Little did she know that she had met one of the robbers before and to keep her from getting killed for being a reporter he makes up a story that they had once been married. Ethan Stone did not expect to see the woman reporter again, he is on a mission of his own and to get them both out of it he forces her to pretend.

There were certain parts that I really did not like about Michael, for being such a smart woman she certainly opened her mouth at inopportune times to make matters worse for everyone and practically seemed like she was trying to get herself killed. I liked Ethan's straight forward and practical attitude, he knew what had to be done and he accomplished it one way or another.

Review: More Than You Wished

More Than You Wished More Than You Wished by Jo Goodman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Bria Hamilton's only wish is to reclaim the plantation that was stolen from her family by the Yankees after the Civil War. She sees her chance in Lucas Kincaid, yes he is a Yankee, but the more time she spends with him the more she doesn't want to see him leave.

I did not like Bria that much in the first series, I did feel for her and everything she had to go through though. I thought Lucas was the kind of character I could respect, I liked his philosophy and how he stood up for his principles. Lucas was very understanding.

Review: More Than You Know

More Than You Know More Than You Know by Jo Goodman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

Claire Bancroft is desperate to find her brother and father. They were lost to her in the Pacific Islands on a research expedition a year and a half ago and she cannot remember exactly what happened. That is where Rand Hamilton comes in. His is desperate in his own right, desperate to find the lost family treasure to put his plantation in order. Embarking on the dangerous mission, both of them have their own agendas.

I liked how Goodman made Claire's personality so independent, especially with her limitations. I liked Rand's character, he was strong and well-respected. He had a lot going against him but pursued through all of it. He blames himself for a lot that wasn't his fault and I liked how Goodman was able to show him as vulnerable too. Once again I felt that part of the story was not entirely needed, it dragged on a bit.
