Kiss My Ash (Bloomin’ Psychic #4) by Annabel Chase

“This is who you are. Love yourself unconditionally and don’t get caught up in the ‘should’ or ‘would like.’ Just be.” Each book in this series keeps getting better. I adore how open Mia now is about her psychic abilities. It is so refreshing compared to how she used to hide and not accept it. She is embracing who she is and is learning that she never needs to apologize for being herself. Mia’s relationship with Dane is inspiring and gives hope to those who may be struggling in a relationship or struggling to find a good relationship. Finally Chief … Continue reading Kiss My Ash (Bloomin’ Psychic #4) by Annabel Chase

Drive Me Daisy (Bloomin’ Psychic #3) by Annabel Chase

“Don’t let pride stop you from giving yourself what you need. It’s self-defeating.” I love that in this book, Mia is learning how to stand up for herself and not discount her feelings. Watching her evolve in her dealings with her mother is great to see. I hope there is more regarding this relationship in future books! This book was slow for me. It wasn’t quite as engaging as the previous two but I still enjoyed it. I liked the way the mystery had a little more relevance in Mia’s life with regards to the witch aspect of it. The … Continue reading Drive Me Daisy (Bloomin’ Psychic #3) by Annabel Chase

Life’s a Birch (Bloomin’ Psychic #2) by Annabel Chase

“Mia, you need to set aside your years of brainwashing,” Patrick said. “You are not normal.”“Gee, thanks.”He patted my arm. “That’s a compliment, sweetie. Normal is overrated.” This is a great follow up to Petal to the Metal! Life’s a Birch really starts to explore Mia’s talents and abilities as well as her concept of “reality”. She is developing a little more self confidence and belief in herself. Of course, solving murders can also help with that 😉 Continue reading Life’s a Birch (Bloomin’ Psychic #2) by Annabel Chase

Raised in Fire (Fire and Ice #1) by K. F. Breene

I discovered this author through her Leveling Up series which I adore. However, I was disappointed with this series. Now, I have only read book 1 so I am hoping books 2 and 3 are better. I do enjoy the main character of this book, Reagan. She’s a badass woman who is used to doing things on her own and knows that the only person she can fully trust and rely on is herself. I love the relationships she has with others and I love her self-motivation. Darius annoyed me more than anyone else in this book. I’m glad that … Continue reading Raised in Fire (Fire and Ice #1) by K. F. Breene

Mind Games by Shana Silver

This was such an amazing book! Read at your own caution for potential spoilers! Mind Games is a sci-fi book where the main character sells memories. I love the idea that our memories are backed up to a cloud system where we can access them at anytime. Rather than saving photos, you can save full memories instead. To me, this isn’t outside of the realm of possibility, as is the danger that can come with it. If you make the wrong person mad, and they know how to hack, say goodbye to your memories. This creates a huge ethical issue, … Continue reading Mind Games by Shana Silver

Desperate Forest by Cece Louise

Please note, I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that there are spoilers ahead in this review. When I first started the book, honestly I wasn’t super thrilled. A king was murdered, the uncle wants to now kill the princess in order to have control over the kingdom, and the Princess has run away. Okay, decently common theme throughout young adult fantasy books. I’m very glad that I kept reading though. Roselynn was a fantastic protagonist. She is a great combination of innocence and determination and loyalty to save her people … Continue reading Desperate Forest by Cece Louise

Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

Please note, I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. And there are spoilers ahead! Okay….now to the review. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I’ve definitely read books in Instant message/chat format before… TTYL by Lauren Myracle for example. So when I started this book and it was in text message format, I wasn’t really phased. However, I love that Hemmingway also add it in excerpts from journal entries as well as regular letters also. It was a great way to provide background information around the story without breaking the format of the way it was … Continue reading Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

Me Myself & Him by Chris Tebbetts

I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you net galley! Truth be told, I did not like this book. I had a very hard time getting into it and I struggled to find the motivation to continue reading. The way the book was set up simply made me very not interested in it. I did not like that each chapter essentially had two chapters in it, one version for each of the two storylines that was being told. I think the premise behind the book is great, and I love the idea … Continue reading Me Myself & Him by Chris Tebbetts

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

Another fun and cute read from Emma Mills! I love the character of Claudia. She is the perfect blend of true friend/defender/introvert. While she is skeptical of people, and skeptical of them liking her, she is a true defender of her friends. Once she befriends someone, she is loyal. I wasn’t thrilled with the storyline between her and Gideon. I loved them as friends, and loved that they ended up together, but I felt that the tension and minor drama between them was unnecessary. It felt similar to most YA romcoms. Predictable but relatable at the same time. I did … Continue reading Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

This was a very cute book. It was light, quick, fun, and easy to read. It is a great book to read when you are stressed and you want something to distract you. While most of the story was predictable, the author did manage to have some surprises within the story also. I enjoyed watching Sloane learn what friendship truly is and learn more about herself. Her immediate dedication to her friends was a great recurring theme throughout the book. I would have liked the story to continue and delve further into her relationships as well as the relationships between … Continue reading This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills
