Another mediocre month for mini reviews – not bad, but it could have been better. Here are my mini reviews for this September.
Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West
Release Date: May 29, 2018
“I wondered if life was about facing fears. Sometimes we overcame them and sometimes they overcame us. On the days we won, we had every right to celebrate.”
I thought that Listen to Your Heart was really cute and I liked podcast setting. It was unique, and worked fantastically as an audiobook. I actually really liked all the characters, they all felt like real people and had good interactions and growth in their relationships.I appreciate that was wasn’t too much extra drama in the story, there was enough to keep it engaging, while also believable.
The only negative really is that I think Hunter was pretty irrelevant to the story. I know he was really only there to show how Kat had grown as a characters and is finally moving on from her past relationships and opening herself to new experiences, but it was unnecessary. Overall this was a cute and fun summer read, a perfect between book to keep your read mood in a happy place.
500 Words or Less by Juleah del Rosario
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: September 25, 2018
“Maybe I was broken inside,
with a moral compass
that no longer pointed north.
Or maybe I just wanted
to be wanted,
to be heard,
to be seen,
I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review
So a better time than last month, but not as good as others. I think I’m getting bck to a good reading space, and I might have mroe time in the next few weeks so I’m exciting to be reading again and it feels good.
