TL;DR

Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
  1. Beach Read – I was not expecting to cry but here we are.
  2. Restless Slumber – True Blood meets ACOTAR but make it dark.
  3. Lobizona – Pick this up now and thank me later.
  4. The Damned – Still waiting on more vampires…
  5. Catherine House – A beautifully written weird and unique story, just not my cup of tea.
  6. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me – Slow burn with a side of extra slooooooow.
  7. They Wish They Were Us – A fun read while it lasted but pretty predictable.
  8. This Coven Won’t Break – The gay witches are back for vengeance…what more do I need to say?

Favorite Read of the Month

This definitely caught me by surprise and I mean that in a good way. I thought this was going to be some light, summery, rom-com type of read and boy was I wrong. While there were a few laugh out loud moments in this book it was also pretty sad in terms of what some of the characters were going through. And I love a heavy read over here so I really enjoyed my time with this one!

Least Favorite Read of the Month

I’m still pretty bummed about this one. I was really looking forward to The Damned after how the first book ended. I thought the author did a really good job setting up what would be a promising sequel and it just let me down on so many levels. I also thought this was a duology but after the ending of this book I quickly learned it most definitely is not.

Until next time,
