November Mini-Reviews

I thought I’d share all my mini-reviews for the month! I enjoyed all of these book to varying degrees – some I really loved, others weren’t for me – but I still wanted to give you my thoughts on them! So here are some mini-reviews from books I’ve read this month.


 Sasquatch, Love, & Other Imaginary Things by Betsy Aldridge & Carrie DuBoise-Shaw

Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)

Release Date: August 8, 2017

Did you ever stop to think that maybe Bigfoot doesn’t believe in you either?

There was this lightheartedness and overdramatic cheesyness that worked worked perfectly together to create a humorous quick read. The reality tv drama mixed with all things Bigfoot were so ridiculous, but it worked for the story. I also really liked the quotes at the beginning of the chapters. They added to the atmosphere and kept reading the story fun. Unfortunately, I didn’t like any of the characters and found the relationships to be underdeveloped. With this being such a short book, quite a few scenes felt rushed and dialogue forced – making the characters more unlikable. This wasn’t a bad story by any means, I just wanted more from it


Run Away With Me by Mila Gray

Run Away With Me (Come Back To Me, #3)

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.25 Stars)

Release Date: November 28, 2017

Run Away With Me is a beautiful story of love, friendship, and healing. I immediately connected with Emerson and Jake. They have a rich history and a chemistry you can’t deny. I loved getting to see them rekindle their friendship, and seeing each character healing from different wounds. But, there were a lot of sideplot that really distracted from Em and Jake, and their storylines. Like a lot of them. Don’t get me wrong, they certainly elevated the drama, but I would have liked a more singular focus. While I do wish there were a few less sideplots, this story does not lack heart. It definitely takes you on a healing journey with Emerson, that is beautiful to see.

The Chaos of Standing Still by Jessica Brody

The Chaos of Standing Still

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)

Release Date: November 28, 2017

“Any system, if left unattended or isolated, will eventually result in entropy. Or chaos.”

This is the holiday contemporary you should reach for if you want more than just an adorable romance. Don’t get me wrong, it’s got that too, but The Chaos of Standing Still is all about friendship and healing and learning to move on when you’re desperately holding onto the past. The snowed-in airport was the perfect setting for the story, and we got to meet a lot of interesting characters. While there were some weird side plots, Illuminati airport conspiracy theory anyone? For the most part, this was a fun and heartfelt read that is perfect for this holiday season.
