Recent Reads Mini Reviews

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

Worth the Wait by Karla Sorensen

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Release Date: September 29, 2022

This was a nice conclusion to the Love at First Sight series and I enjoyed them all. I enjoyed Hunter and Iris’ story and always love a second chance romance, but I would have given almost anything to have flashbacks to their high school relationship. I feel like I would have cared about the couple x as much. But I still liked them and the cozy setting, and loving and interfering Buchanan family.

Rebellion by C.J. Listro

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

DNF @ 11%

I had high hopes for this because I love a paranormal romance story, but this was just not clicking with me. It was a little too corny for me, but I’m sure if I read it in 2011 I would have loved it. I’ll always recommend paranormal romance to help get you out of a reading slump, so if you’re in the mood for one, I hope this works for you better than me.

First Semester by Q.B. Tyler

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆
Release Date: September 12, 2018

DNF@ 41%

This just was not good. It was actually hard to read at parts because it’s just so awkward I couldn’t take it anymore.

Skylar is so immature and bratty. And obsessed with the fact that she’s Italian (by way of Connecticut). And Aidan has no distinct personality to speak of so I didn’t really feel anything for them as a couple.

A Deal With the Devil by Elizabeth O’Roark

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Release Date: August 10, 2021

This was a solid romance. Hayes and Tali immediately have chemistry, and though this is pitched as an enemies-to-lovers story, I don’t see it, but that doesn’t take away from the banter between the pair and their fighting their attraction. One of my biggest negatives was that I didn’t feel like we got much of an emotional development or connection with the couple. Neither one was really open with the other, but there was an attempt I guess.
