Origin by Jennifer L. Arementrout
This is what I was longing for 3 books ago honestly.
Everything started kicking off in this which is desperately what I’d been wanting. All the boring same old stuff of the 2nd and 3rd books should’ve been condensed into half a book then put this in with it.
I really enjoyed all the different settings in this and learning the government’s perspective on things.
However I have really got to the point where I find the romance nauseating. They’re just so young and stupid and it really bores me reading their inner monologues about each other.
Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This was basically a continuation of the 4th book and I feel like both books could have been condensed into one book. There was so many random scenes that were just completely unnecessary.
I had to put down this book so many times because as with the previous book there was so much nauseating romance.
The end of this was what I expected to happen and I was happy with it but of course it was incredibly cliche.
Sugar Bowl series by Sawyer Bennett
I started to read this series because Jill raved about it. The first book was really enjoyable and an incredibly fun read but as the series went on it just kept getting more and more ridiculous.
I liked that it was romance with a twist of intrigue, but it veered off into a weird place in the second book and I just felt really awkward reading it. The third book was just bizarre and not what I expected to get into after reading the first book.
All The King’s Men by Alex Powell
Thank you to netgalley and Less Than Three Press for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I just requested this on a whim because it sounded interesting, but then I found out later that Alex Powell is genderqueer and I’m all about diversity in my reading.
This was an interesting read and whilst it wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever read it was a change of pace for me as I don’t often read sci fi. I found myself confused occasionally and the romance of it, whilst a kind of side story, felt awkward. I did really like the concept of the book though and I would happily read another book by Powell.
Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop by Jane Linfoot
Thank you to netgalley and Harper for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was happy enough to return to this series and read about characters I knew but a different group of people at the forefront.
The plot was mostly predictable but still nice to read and of course it was a good read in the run up to Christmas. I liked reading about the relationship between Sera and her sister, not just the romance aspect, though her sister was an unlikeable nightmare, but thankfully she grows towards the end.
