Wrap Up: April 2017

Okay, so I’m in a reading and writing slump so not only is this long overdue but I also haven’t finished reading anything since the end of April.  I won’t really be talking about he books since it’s been a while and I don’t really recall my initial thoughts.


Keystone (Crossbreed #1) by Dannika Dark – ★★★★ – Adult Urban Fantasy Romance 

Once Burned (Night Prince #1) by Jeaniene Frost – ★★★★★ – Adult Urban Fantasy Romance 

Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) by Jeaniene Frost – ★★★★★ – Adult Urban Fantasy Romance 

Bound by Flames (Night Prince #3) by Jeaniene Frost – ★★★ – Adult Urban Fantasy Romance 

The first two books in the Night Prince series are re-reads for me – in an attempt to pull out of my reading slump – and I still really love them, the third book however was a bit of a disappointment.

Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1) by Chloe Neill –  ★★★ – Adult Urban Fantasy Romance 

Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires #2) by Chloe Neill –  ★★★ – Adult Urban Fantasy Romance 

I rated the first two books three stars but I wouldn’t read on or recommend the series.

The Hot Shot (Game On #4) by Kristen Callihan – ★★★ – New Adult Contemporary Sports Romance

Hunted by Meagan Spooner – ★★★ – Young Adult Fantasy Romance Retelling 

I skipped like 20 pages towards the end so I missed a somewhat important bit – then I skim read to the end.  I liked the story, a lot, but I just didn’t click with the writing style.  I liked how the Beast’s parts were done, but just something didn’t gel with me and the writing style.  It might have been because I’m still coming off a reading slump, I’ll re-read it sometime in the future and not skip that bit.  I liked the ending but it was a bit vague to me.  I really liked the plot and story though!

Okay and now I’m going to share the books I’ve half read and need to finish – I’ve decided the best way to end my reading slump it to finish what I’ve started.

A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas

Skipped Chapter 63 to Chapter 66 then skim read a lot until Chapter 73 where I stopped.  I’m just no really loving ACOWAR as much as I did ACOTAR and ACOMAF.  I will finish though, I still love Feyre and Rhysand and the Inner Circle.

The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen #1) by Roshani Chokshi

Stopped halfway through Chapter 14 – I think I skim read ahead but I stopped really reading on page 142.

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful #1) by Jamie McGuire

I got it into my head that I wanted to re-read this series so I could read the Maddox Brothers series.  However I stopped reading at Chapter 18.  With 95 pages to go.  I won’t be reading the Maddox Brothers series anytime soon, that’s for sure.
