Kindle Unlimited Round Up

Instead of doing a mini review posts for all of the KU books I’ve read over the last month, I’m going to put them all into this round up posts. Mostly because I don’t have a lot to say about the majority of them. They were perfect mindless reads that  I needed to avoid a slump.

Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward | ★★★★☆

Dirty Letters

This was a happy surprise. A super quick read and a good amount of emotional depth that I honestly wasn’t expecting. I really loved the pen pals (and its rekindling in present day) It helped make the connection and therefore relationship believable. I had no clue that the MC had agoraphobia and while I have absolutely zero experience with it, I felt like her trauma was handled very well. And rockstar romances are honestly just really fun to read, so I had a good time.

To Have and to Hate by R.S. Grey | ★★★☆☆

To Have and to Hate

A super quick read, but definitely forgettable. The chemistry wasn’t completely there for me, but I did like seeing the relationship build and have a drive in the story. The ending was cute too, which is always nice.

Make me Bad by R.S. Grey | ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)

Make Me Bad

Quick, easy read but I’m already forgetting it. I liked the small town, insular vibes – it works well for a bit of a forbidden romance because everyone knows everyone and it just makes the story a little more fun. But I just didn’t really connect with these characters as much as some of R.S. Grey’s other books.

Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward |  ★★★☆☆

Hate Notes

Not really what I was expecting, but not bad. Another quick and easy read. I liked the buildup of the relationship mostly, but it wasn’t anything special. I thought the grandmother was a great characters and her meddling was wholesome and sweet.

I Dare You by Isla Madden-Mills | ★★☆☆☆

I Dare You

I was in the mood for a sports romance, and while this fit the bill, I found the story to be rushed and lack luster overall. But it is a super quick read you can easily knock out in a few hours and it’s a book that can easily take your mind off of everything, which I can appreciate, even if I just thought this was an okay read.

Broken Knight by L.J. Shen | ★☆☆☆☆

Broken Knight (All Saints High, #2)

DNF @ 24%

This just wasn’t good and I wasn’t having fun reading it so I stopped because I don’t want my reading slump to get worse.

Dear Ava by Isla Madden-Mills | ★★☆☆☆

Dear Ava

Another mostly lackluster NA romance, but I did really enjoy the strong focus on family throughout the story. The anonymous love letter was a big draw for me and it was so underwhelming because there was only like 2 in the whole book.
CW: sexual assualt

Enemies by Tijan | ★★★☆☆ (3.5 stars)


This was a fun, quick, light steamy read that had some really nice family moments and some surprises I wasn’t expecting. While I don’t really think this was an enemies to lovers story, I liked Stone and Dusty’s chemistry and background. I also really enjoyed the subtle friendships that developed in the background of the story.

What are some of your favorite KU reads? Would you like any future KU roundup posts to be shorter, like my mini reviews (3 – 5 books) or is more okay because there’s only a sentence or two per book? Let me know!
