Recent Reads Mini Reviews

More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.

The Last Graduate by Naomi Novik

The Last Graduate (The Scholomance, #2)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Release Date: September 28, 2021

DNF @39%

I’m so bored and I don’t care about anything and I can’t keep the side characters straight. I still the the setting is the most interesting part of this world (and the magic system has no rules – or at least I can’t keep them straight) but this just didn’t work for me.

Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson

Meet Me in the Margins

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Release Date: February 15, 2022

This was a cute little quick read. Romances set in the book world are always fun and I loved the vibes of the small press. And the romance was adorably cute.

Corrupt by Penelope Douglas

Corrupt (Devil's Night, #1)

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: November 17, 2015

This was intense, addictive and dramatic and I wasn’t looking for it to be anything else so I was engaged from the very beginning. It’s toxic and messy as hell, but it was such a quick read and I was engaged from the beginning. The dual timeline worked and helped build the history between the characters and the antagonism in the present day.

Twisted Lies by Ana Huang

Twisted Lies (Twisted, #4)

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: June 23, 2019

While I’ll always love a ride or die hero, and I did like the subtle buildup over the previous books seeing Christian and Stella’s small interactions, I didn’t quite feel the explosive chemistry I expected. I think I was just expecting more development and tension in general. But still had a fun time with this and easily knocked in out in a day. A perfect quick read
