Last Week’s Round Up

Hi everyone! I took this week and devoted myself to knocking some books out of my TBR. I finished a few ARCs too. I am slowly, but surely working my way through them. So without further ado….












This book was about the same as all the others in this series. I had very high expectations because of the author. The plot was good, but I just didn’t care about the characters. If you want to read it because its Catwoman or because Sarah wrote it then I would, but it just isn’t a 5 star for me.


This book has set on my TBR for a long time. I got approved for the 3rd book ARC, so I decided to move it on up. I was pleasantly surprised. The writing hooks you from the beginning. I spent the whole book trying to figure out who was good or bad. I never did. I am super excited about the second book and I hope to figure out more.


The final ending to my Pretty Little Liars. After 16 books, I didn’t know whether to love them or hate them. I definitely miss the story and characters, but it did go on for a long time. I also talked to some friends who watched the tv show and it appears it is definitely different. These girls were in constant trouble. I felt sorry for them and was angry at them too. I did enjoy the series.


You can never really go wrong with a Kasie book. Out of all the ones I have read, this one was probably my least favorite. I didn’t like how the mother was portrayed or the things she did. If you like Kasie’s books, it is worth the read, but probably not one I would recommend starting out.


I received a copy of this from First to Read in exchange for an honest review. I was unfamiliar with this author, but it sounded like fun. Ava and Caleb met in an airport and the banter and dislike was so funny. Caleb was a real jerk for most of the book, but I enjoyed finding out what made them both the way they were. The romance was steamy. The only thing I didn’t like was that it ended abruptly, but I am hoping it was a set up for another book about his brother.


I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This book really drags for the whole first half. The second half picks up and had a pretty good ending. The book really only is about Christmas at the end.

This week I hope to read Tarnished City and I have another book for a book tour to read. After that we will see!!

Whew….I also read another ARC but it is for a book tour and will be published at the end of the month. Have you read any of these? Did you feel similarly? Is there any book you are reading you love?

  1. I read and reviewed Saints and Misfits on my blog! I quite liked it. This book wasn’t in my immediate TBR ๐Ÿ™ˆ and I still have a pile of ARC’s and review copies to read and review.

  2. I haven’t read Catwoman yet but I’m hoping to pick it up soon. The Gilded Cage has been on my TBR for ages. I really need to give it a shot. I’m glad you enjoyed the first book! Hope you enjoy rest of the series too. I can’t wait to read Fight or Flight! It sounds like a fun read! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I am really behind on my Kasie West books, but I do remember really enjoying The Distance Between Us (except for the unfortunate mother-daughter relationship). I am a sucker for slow burning relationships. And Xander reminded me of Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, which is always a plus!

    I am currently reading a review copy of Nocturne by Kat Ross and I am loving it. She writes some of my favorite underrated fantasy!

  4. Yeah… I think I’m just going to skip Catwoman. Enough people with the same taste as me thought it was just all right. I have too many other books on my TBR that are supposed to be amazing to let a MEH book get in the way. Thanks for the heads up!
