The Book of Ivy and The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel – Review and Engel’s Top Ten Addictions

The Book of Ivy and The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel – Review and Engel’s Top Ten Addictions

Author Top Ten Lists, Reviews 9 ★★★★½

When I heard that The Revolution of Ivy was being released, I knew it was time to pick up the first book – I’d bought it at the beginning of the year because I heard so many raving reviews of it, but I was holding off on actually reading it because I’d heard about that cliffhanger and I heard the series was a duology. I figured why not wait for the conclusion? And this was my chance! Well, The Book of Ivy definitely lived up to my high expectations! This book had me turning the pages at a furious rate and I stayed up way too late reading it! The book follows Ivy, who has been told her whole life that her family’s enemy is her own. She’s known for the past two years that she would be marrying the president’s son – and that she would need to kill… Read more »

Anya and the Shy Guy by Suze Winegardner – Review & Winegardner’s Top Ten Addictions

Anya and the Shy Guy by Suze Winegardner – Review & Winegardner’s Top Ten Addictions

Author Top Ten Lists, Reviews 6 ★★★½

Anya and the Shy Guy is the fourth installment in the Backstage Pass series, which chronicles the love lives of the members of Seconds to Juliet, a superstar boy band. I haven’t read the first three books in the series (those of you who know me well are gasping right now – I never read series out of order), but this book really did stand well on its own as a standalone – and now I want to read the others! The synopsis describes the book really well, so I’m going to jump straight to my review. What I loved: The twin story. I’m pretty much a sucker for a twin switch story, which is why I couldn’t resist this book even though I hadn’t read the first three. And Matt’s story definitely met all of my expectations – the pressure of the twin trying to pass himself off, the efforts to bend… Read more »

Review, Giveaway & Author Top Ten List – Racing Hearts by Laura Lascarso

Review, Giveaway & Author Top Ten List – Racing Hearts by Laura Lascarso

Author Top Ten Lists, Giveaways (Ended), Reviews 17 ★★★★

Racing Hearts is a great start to a series of novellas that feature romance and race car driving. I haven’t read very many serial novellas, so this was a bit new for me, but I enjoyed getting to know the characters for this series and I’m eager to read more! What I enjoyed: Jesse. Jesse is one of those characters who is just instantly likable. He’s working hard to take care of his family after his father’s death – and he’s given up most of his own freedom to do so. He’s also given up on his dream of becoming a race car driver ever since his father and biggest supporter has been gone. I’m eager to see him find his love of racing again. Starcrossed lovers. Jesse and Brooke are a bit of an unlikely pair. Their fathers were friends turned arch-rivals, and they had some very bad blood between them at… Read more »
