Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West, published 2018

  So, I was checking out P.S. I Like You from the library when next to it I saw this book. Since I’d read Kasie West in the past, I decided to take a chance and check this one out too. I was extremely disappointed in Kasie West. My expectations weren’t even that high to begin with, but this was the worst of her books that I’ve read. The characters were inconsistent and confusing, and the new take on the classic layout of a love story was choppy and unpredictable. While most things in this book weren’t to my taste, I still found that I was invested in it. I wanted to ditch it, but I needed to know what happened. Sadly, the ending did not redeem the book, it was slow to play out and confusing.   This book had some (and by some I mean a shockingly small amount) good parts, but it was mostly bad and annoying. It was hard to gauge exactly what was happening at any given point or what any of the characters were thinking or feeling. If you enjoy strongly mediocre books, bordering on jus

Her Royal Highness (book #2) by Rachel Hawkins, published 2019

            5 stars. 100% one of the cutest, sweetest romances I have ever read. I have no criticism to offer, this book was literally perfect.  This was the second book in a series and while I liked the first book, this one was even better. I read the first one first (obviously) and I already posted a review for it, go check it out (Royals). The storyline was delightful and I found myself more invested in it.  I’m definitely putting other books by this author on my list. I whole-heartedly recommend this book, and I will reread it in the near future.

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson, published 2019

          This was a great book. It opened my eyes to historical romance fantasy. The sarcastic crime-fighting trio made this book one of the most unique stories I’ve ever read. The emotional rollercoaster this book took me on was so captivating it held in my thoughts even when I wasn’t reading it.   I ended up reading this book well into the night and through to the morning.The character development, while not something you see right away, was amazing. You just have to take a moment to compare the characters to themselves from the beginning to the end of the book.  The characters, the plot, the writing was all great but the ending was by far the best.  The author did a beautiful job of wrapping up the story as well as all the loose ends she’d left hanging throughout the book until the dramatic climax.  The craftsmanship was amazing in all the scenes, truly making it one of the best books I’ve ever read. I passionately urge you to read this book and will personally be rereading it.
