Just One of the Royals by Leah & Kate Rooper

Just One of the Royals by Leah & Kate Rooper

3 stars — OK.  So.  Hmmm…  I adored the first book in this series, so I was excited to see more.  But…while this one wasn’t bad, it was just missing something.  The tropes in this story are friends to lovers and fake relationship, and I didn’t always understand their friendship, and I DEFINITELY didn’t understand […]

The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

3 stars — I was really looking forward to this book, and the main reason is the obvious awesome diversity!  Not only is our author a person of colour, but so are BOTH of our main characters!  And I’d seen some good reviews for Ms. Guillory’s debut, The Wedding Date, so I figured it was […]

Style by Chelsea M. Cameron

3 stars — This one had potential, and I was excited to read another F/F, but unfortunately it fell flat.  The storyline was actually kind of boring, there was barely any conflict.  I mean, I don’t mind lots of happy times, but there has to be something driving the story. The editing was HORRIBLE.  And […]

Dead Set by Melissa Pearl & Anna Cruise

Dead Set by Melissa Pearl & Anna Cruise

3 stars — This one was more light on the romance, focused more heavily on the plot and mystery surrounding Alaina’s brother’s death.  I was enjoying the mystery for the first half, but unfortunately I kept wondering about certain things, and I couldn’t get out of my own head.  I was still fully entrenched in my […]

Wait With Me by Amy Daws

Wait With Me by Amy Daws

3 stars — This one started off really strong.  I loved the story behind it, hence why I requested it (even though I haven’t yet read a book by Ms. Daws).  And it was so cute and funny, and I was enjoying the characters and laughing out loud at the start!  At least a 4 […]

Zen Buddhism : 5O Spiritual Teachings From Buddhist To Enlightenment And True Happiness by Kellie Sullivan

Zen Buddhism : 5O Spiritual Teachings From Buddhist To Enlightenment And True Happiness by Kellie Sullivan

I think this book is for people who already know the teachings of Buddha.  It kept referencing concepts that I didn’t know and then it would try to explain them in layman’s terms but I am a layman and had no idea what it meant.  Guess I’m not Buddhist material. And while I did finish […]

Poetry for Young People: Maya Angelou  by Maya Angelou, Edwin Graves Wilson (Editor), Jerome Lagarrigue (Illustrator)

Poetry for Young People: Maya Angelou by Maya Angelou, Edwin Graves Wilson (Editor), Jerome Lagarrigue (Illustrator)

Poetry has always been an abstract concept for me. I am too literal for it I think. It’s difficult for me to enjoy because of that. I did enjoy this short book of poems even though I wasn’t able to really comprehend most of them. I figured if I start small, ie in the children’s […]

The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood

The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood

3 stars — I think I wanted to like this one more than I did, I’m bummed that books that are hits with others don’t seem to be working for me.  Which is not to say I didn’t enjoy myself, but I did find myself avoiding reading, and at times having to read paragraphs over […]
