Mini Reviews #9 – Netgalley Mini Reviews 3.0

Mini Reviews #9 – Netgal..

Another month, more Netgalley reviews. Here are a few brief thoughts on some 3 star Netgalley reads: In theory You Lucky Dog sounds like it would be a really fun, cute rom com. It had all the parts. Sadly, for me, that just wasn’t the case. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed some of it, like the dogs because they were ADORABLE. And I also liked some of the family aspect. That was a good thing to include, especially Max’s family. But for the most part I found the plot very slow and Carly’s family felt like caricatures and not […]

Review: The Mall – Megan McCafferty

Review: The Mall – Megan..

It has been 8 years since I read a Megan McCafferty book. I remember falling in love with her books in 2002 when I read Sloppy Firsts and continued that love when I read her Bumped duology. So I was really excited when I first heard about The Mall. And then I was extra excited when I read that it took place in 1991. I was a teenager in the 90s so I knew it would be fun to reminisce about a decade I loved. In the end I really enjoyed The Mall, but I didn’t love it. The Mall […]

Review: More Than Maybe – Erin Hahn

Review: More Than Maybe –..

Recently I read Erin Hahn’s debut You’d Be Mine and I really enjoyed it. It hit all of the notes I love in a good YA book. It had music and road trips and good friends and relationship drama. I immediately became a fan of Hahn was I was really excited to have More Than Maybe to look forward to. Another book dealing with music and family relationships? Sign me up. And I can report not only did it also hit all the notes, it hit me straight in the feels. More Than Maybe is a delightful story about Vada […]

Review: Paradise Cove – Jenny Holiday

Review: Paradise Cove – ..

I’m a Jenny Holiday fan girl. There is no point in denying it. When I first met her writing with her Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series I knew I was going to be a fan for a while. There is something so right about the stories she tells and each book in the series got better and better. And honestly the same has happened with the Matchmaker Bay series. While I enjoyed Mermaid Inn, I have fallen completely head over heels in love with Paradise Cove. Nora and Jake’s story was beyond my expectations and I’m going to tell you why. […]

Review: Accidental – Alex Richards

Review: Accidental – Ale..

I can’t remember how I heard about Accidental but I do remember I wanted to read it as soon as I learned about its existence. It seemed like a book that not only had never read anything like, but something that is current and could almost have been ripped from the headlines. I knew it would be a heavy book, and I was prepared. And although it wasn’t as emotional as I expected, Accidental was a book I was happy to have read. Accidental is about 16 year old Johanna who is being raised by her grandparents after her mom […]
