[Review] My Best Friend’s Ex

35004715

“Funny thing about true happiness, though. You never know it’s inside you until someone pulls it out.”

Quick fire review:

4 out of 5 stars

This is a sexy romance with a lot of heart. I loved watching these two friends embark on a forbidden love and deal with the emotional fallout of some past actions.

Also sidenote, Tucker has officially been entered into the book boyfriend list.

I was really excited when I received a copy of this book from Bloomsbury because the premise sounded amazing, but the problem with this thriller is that it felt quite predictable.

The characters were okay and the writing in itself was actually quite intriguing, but I kept feeling like a something big was on the way but it never eventuated. It could possibly have just been the mood I was in as I do believe there is someone who would really enjoy this book so don’t take this review at face value, give it a try for yourself.

I don’t want to say too much about this book because I genuinely think it needs to be explored first hand.

Think you’ve read all you can about strangers writing letters to each other? Think again.

This is a special book. The writing in this is superb and author Kemmerer has done a spectacular job at bleeding emotion into every page. I was really taken with Juliet and Declan’s story and their journey held my attention from start to end. Written with heart and featuring a mix of complex, uplifting, funny and downright sad moments, Letters to the Lost is a must read for the YA lover.

[Teaser Review] A Court of Wings & Ruin

I am going to be writing a “full, very long winded, snacks will be required, stay hydrated while reading” review for this book shortly, but thought I would just let you know my initial thoughts.

“Remember that you are a wolf. And you cannot be caged.”

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t even think there are enough words to describe how wonderful this book is.

One thing I love about Sarah J. Maas is it doesn’t matter how many different worlds she creates, they are consistently complex, vivid and full of unique life. ACOWAR is a perfect example of this. The character development in this book is outstanding and the grand battle sequences are diabolical in all the best ways. Everything feels like it comes full circle and I can’t fault one thing.

I’m interested to see where the next few books go as this really felt like a wrap up of the Feyre and Rhys storyline but I know there are more glorious things to come.

Highly recommend you pick this series up.

[Review] A Conjuring of Light

29939230Quick fire review:

I don’t think it really needs to be said, but this book was awesome. No. It was fucking awesome.

This book was much darker, edgier and far more mysterious than the previous books but that beloved tone and sharp writing that made you fall in love with this series still exists at its core. Schwab is a genius and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.

My rating? ALL THE STARS IN EVERY UNIVERSE FROM NOW UNTIL ETERNITY.

Brace yourself for some sweet f-bombs and an overuse of mismatched quotes.
