Week In Review: July 28th – August 2nd

This week in my quest to get my reading goal down to zero book behind, I only read books I knew I’d be able to finish in about a day. So once again I’ve read a majority of romance books.

Title: Betty and Veronica: The Bond of Friendship

Author: Jamie Lee Rotante & Brittney Williams

Genre: YA Graphic Novel

Page Count: 144 pages

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I’ve never read any other comic from Archie Comics before this, I’ve watched Riverdale but comparing the two seems to anger die hard Archie Comics fans so I won’t do that. That being said the story of this graphic novel was very engaging and the characters were amazing. And even if it hadn’t been I found the art-style so great, Brittney Williams did such a great job on the art that I’d recommend people read this if only for that.

Title: Black And Green

Author: C.L. Stone

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Page Count: 435 pages

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book being the 11th in a series should probably mean that it’s getting repetitive, right? Well C.L. Stone manages to bring in yet another antagonist so far into the series and actually makes us care about the outcome with said antagonist.

Title: Love’s Cruel Redemption

Author: C.L. Stone

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Page Count: 507 pages

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This is the last book in the series published as of now. The story still seems far from over and in the time of the story only like five months have passes since the first book. That being said this is one of my favourite books in the series, it explores the feelings of the main characters further and delves more into one of the antagonists introduced earlier in the series.

Title: Nightfall

Author: Penelope Douglas

Genre: New Adult Romance

Page Count: 621 pages

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book was highly anticipated for me, I read the first three books in this series back in December and I’ve been looking forward to this ever since. And I must say Emory is probably my favourite of the main female characters in this series. Her and Will’s story is also just filled with some great angst that made me glued to this book and caused me to stay up till six am to finish it.

Title: Vicious Prince

Author: Rina Kent

Genre: New Adult Romance

Page Count: 300 pages

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I read the first four books in this series earlier this month so I decided to pick this one up as well. And while the story and the characters were fine it did feel quite rushed a lot of the way through and that did mean that my enjoyment of the book suffered.

Title: All the Lies

Author: Rina Kent

Genre: New Adult Romance

Page Count: 218 pages

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I won’t say these books are great, because they aren’t. But they are entertaining and quick reads and that’s really all I’m looking for in books right now. 


Title:
All the Truths

Author: Rina Kent

Genre: New Adult Romance

Page Count: 264 pages

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This book was slightly more enjoyable than the last book, but it’s still not something I’d actively recommend for anyone. It felt rushed at times and the plot and mysteries sometimes fell flat when they were supposed to seem intriguing and shocking.
