Short Reviews

Here are some short reviews, as mentioned in the title.  Before I knew what reviews were, whenever I was asked for my thoughts about a book, I didn't analyze everything (like I sometimes do now), I literally just word vomited everything that came to mind, which wasn't much (you'll see what I mean).  But now that I have a much better idea of what I'm doing, I'd like to think my reviews have improved. 

But, here are some reviews that a very inexperienced me wrote many months ago...keep in mind that the ones I have here are only the ones I deem worthy of showing you.  I have some pretty embarrassing reviews that I will probably never post up.  I might find some more short reviews and post them later, but for now, I present my short reviews :)

Lost Voices by Sarah  PorterOh. my gosh.  This book was sooo amazing.  Actually, all the books in this series are amazingly incredible.  There were so many wonderful surprizes. I love the way Jaron thinks. He's awesome. All his ideas were so entertaining.  I hate that this series is ending, even though the ending was perfect. Beautiful.  I don't think there are any words to describe how much I loved this I'll just say that this is THE BEST series I have ever read.

Vengeful in Love by Nadia Lee

Author: Nadia Lee

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I loved that the story had way more than just romance. Don't get me wrong, the romance was great, but the actual plot, was amazing! When I first started reading it, I thought it was mainly going to be one of those books that focused mainly on the very romantic scenes, but I wrong, and pleasantly surprized. So...YAY! :)

House of Pleasure (There Was a House #1)
Title: House of Pleasure (There Was a House #1)
Author: Caddy Rowland
Read: Aug. 16-31, 2015
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

For a story that deals with serious situations in real life such as sex trafficking, I think this author did a good job in giving the girls a worthy story.  Phoenix's determination and perseverance was admirable throughout the story, and watching her grow from a (mentally) young and afraid girl to a strong and clever woman was epic.  I enjoyed this very much and look forward to reading the next one.

The Impossibility of TomorrowTitle: The Impossibility of Tomorrow
Author: Avery Williams
Read: Oct.18-22, 2015
Rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read the first one a super long time ago, but either I have a super good memory and was able to recollect everything, or most of what happened in the last book to thoroughly understand what was going on in this book.

We start off the book, knowing that Cyrus, Kailey/Sera's mean ex, has switched bodies yet again, and could be anyone. At first Kailey assumes the worst, her current boyfriend. So she tries to kill him...yikes, I know. Thankfully, she was wrong, and stopped herself in time. The rest of the book was much of the same, really. Just Kailey trying to figure out who Cyrus is. In this aspect, the predictability was...completely unpredictable, and that's quite impressive, to me at least. Usually, I figure this stuff out quite early in the book, so I applaud this one for changing that. But besides all the constant guessing of who is really who, and whatnot, the rest was quite boring...

Eh, this book wasn't too bad, but it wasn't all that good, either. But hey, that's another book checked off my list.
