Review: “The Honey-Don’t List” by Christina Lauren

Happy Monday, friends! (Can a Monday be happy anymore? Was it ever happy? Anyway.) I’m back after a small holiday hiatus! In an attempt to try to get as close to my Goodreads reading goal (100 books!) as possible, I decided it to pick up new adult romances, which I usually read so quickly. So over the weekend, I borrowed this book from the library and managed to finish it. Shocker, I know. I didn’t think I’d do it.

ARC Review: “A Sweet Mess” by Jayci Lee

Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for giving me a free digital copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a quick and easy read that I managed to finish with a day. I was eager to read a sexier NA romance because the two I’ve read previously simply failed to deliver there. While yes, this definitely was a bit more hot and heavy than the others, I still wanted more.

I Started Reading NA Romance… (+ Mini Reviews)

Hi, friends! I’m writing up this blog post because it really hits my fancy. While I’m still devouring YA to no end (seriously, I am still waiting on Sorcery of Thorns as an audiobook from my library. Does this mean I should read my physical copy? LOL), I’ve dove into a fair amount of NA (New Adult) romance these past few weeks.

I turned 30 this year, and while I continually adore YA, my pull to NA lately made me wonder why. Not that I need to justify what I’m reading, but I think it comes down to me not finding these books when I was younger. I think back then I simply didn’t know where to look or how to go about looking (and hello, religion, for twisting my thoughts about certain things).

Anyway, I want to share the recent NA books I’ve been reading and supply some (very small) reviews for them.

Review: “A Court of Thorns & Roses” by Sarah J. Maas

I did! I caved in (like usually) and read this incredibly hyped book that I’ve heard nothing but amaze-balls things about!

And guess what?

I liked it but it didn’t live up to the hype. 😦 Sure, it was great! Maas writes a great story, don’t get me wrong! I love her Throne of Glass series so to read another series by her, of course I was excited! But to be honest, I wasn’t blown away by this book and for me, it didn’t live up to the hype. *hides under the table*
