Recent Reads Mini Reviews

I’ve had a lot more mini reviews lately, but I’m just going with it, so here are some of the books Ive enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.

Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher

Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher

Rating:  ★★★☆☆
Release Date: November 12, 2019

If you’ve seen How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, you know exactly what you’re getting into with this story, there aren’t really any surprises. And while it’s fun to see the story play out in slightly different ways in a book format, I don’t think it will stick with me. Jack and Hannah have great chemistry. I loved getting to see Jack’s family, but his friends were idiots. It’s a fun story and an incredibly quick read that follows the movie beats closely. So if you’re looking for a fun and familiar story, Not the Girl You Marry is the book for you.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows

My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Release Date: June 26, 2018

“Words were good. But sometimes they were simply inadequate.”

I could probably mark this as DNF because I definitely skimmed the last 150 pages or so. While I really enjoyed the set up and the first 200 pages of the story. This book was entirely too long and started to drag after Jane got to Thronhill. It wasn’t terribly, and the humor was great and made it really easy to read, but it’s largely forgettable.

Vicious by L.J. Shen

Vicious (Sinners of Saint, #1)

Rating:★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)
Release Date: December 27, 2016

“I loved her when I hated her. And I loved her when I didn’t want anything to do with her. I was so crazy about her, the lines had blurred together. Feelings were mixed, emotions twisted together.”

This was fine. Vic and Emilia obviously have insane chemistry, and I liked getting to see a few flashbacks too. But this was honestly just a mindless read, and I know I’ll forget all of it within the next month – I was having trouble remembering Emilia’s name writing this review and I just finished this book a few hours ago. But it was fun and it was a perfect escaptist read. And it gots without saying that this relationship is nothing to aspire too, but this enemies to lovers was an entertaining read.
