REVIEW | If You Were Mine by Melanie Harlow

REVIEW | If You Were Mine by..

“Love is real and it’s powerful enough to conquer any odds.” – Melanie Harlow Review I picked up this novel to take a break from YA. I’m glad I did. Over the past year I have come to really enjoy romance novels. This one was no different. If You Were Mine is the story of Claire, an art teacher at a local school who is known for being single. When a fellow teacher reminds her that she hasn’t filled out her RSVP card yet, Claire tells her that she has a date and is looking forward to the wedding. The […]

REVIEW | Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

REVIEW | Empire of Storms by..

“The world will be saved and remade by the dreamers.” – Sarah J.Maas Review It’s taken me a while to get through this novel, not because of the book itself, but because my life has been so crazy busy lately. Much like the rest of Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series, I enjoyed this novel. It took me a while to talk myself into starting it because we are close to the end of the series and I don’t want it to end. I enjoyed getting to see the different interactions between all of the characters and also getting […]

REVIEW + REACT | Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

REVIEW + REACT | Walk the Ed..

“The boy everyone sees but nobody know is with the girl who everybody knows but nobody sees” – Katie McGarry Review There has clearly been a theme to my reviews lately and its badass biker boys and their clubs. The past four reviews have covered Jacqueline Nicole’s series: The Aces and now I’ve gotten back to Katie McGarry’s Thunder Road series. I also feel the need to mention that I just finished watching Sons of Anarchy for the fourth time on Netflix. That might have something to do with my reading choices.Just like with McGarry’s first novel in the Thunder […]

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Resurrection by Nicole Jacquelyn

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Res..

Review “Poets wrote sonnets about her type of beauty. The kind you couldn’t exactly pinpoint, but couldn’t seem to look away from.” – Nicole Jacquelyn Unlike the last three novels in The Aces series, this fourth and final novel is set in Ballyshannon, Ireland after Amy and her parents move their from America. It isn’t really clear why they have moved to Ireland in the story but it always wasn’t super important. After watching Sons of Anarchy four or five different times it was cool to get to see Jacquelyn’s take on the IRA and what was going on in […]

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Absolution by Nicole Jacquelyn

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Abs..

Review “She’s your soft place, son. A man needs a soft place to land when life gets fucked.” – Nicole Jacquelyn After reading Callie’s story and meeting Farrah I was really intrigued to get to know her more. I was glad to find out that the third book in The Aces series was about her and Cody. As with the other Aces novels this one is also set in Eugene over a period of a few years. I like the fact that readers really get the chance to know almost all of the main characters in Nicole Jacquelyn’s biker world […]

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Redemption by Nicole Jacquelyn

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Red..

Review “Demons come out in the dark because they are afraid of the light.” – Nicole Jacquelyn After reading Craving Constellations I wasn’t sure want to expect of this next novel in The Aces series. The first one was decent and I was hoping that this one would be better. I wasn’t wrong. This novel starts off where the first one ended. Callie is at The Aces clubhouse confronting her ex love about her brother. It is then told entirely in a flashback of how Asa and Callie met and how everything ended up the way it did. Starting in […]

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Constellations by Nicole Jacquelyn

REVIEW + REACT | Craving Con..

Review “How could someone make decision after decision attempting to get away from their past and somehow end up right back where they started.” – Nicole Jacquelyn After reading Unbreak my Heart for a blog tour, I knew that I wanted to go back and read Nicole Jaquelyn’s first series. It took me a little bit but I finally gave in and bought the Kindle bundle of all four Aces novels. This first book focuses on Brenna and her story. This novel takes place in Portland Oregon where The Aces, a motorcycle gang, dwell. I could definitely picture the garage […]

REVIEW + REACT | Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman

REVIEW + REACT | Blackhearts..

Review “He had an uncanny way of seeing through her, discerning her thoughts when she least expected or wanted him too.” – Nicole Castroman As with my A Court of Thorns and Roses review, this review was also written a few months after reading the novel. My second to last college semester was incredibly busy and I had no time to sit down and enjoy my books and write reviews for them. Anyone who knows me well knows how obsessed I am with pirates and Blackbeard himself. I loved getting to read a novel written about his origins story. This […]
