The Mason List - S.D. Hendrickson

The Mason ListThe Mason List by S.D. Hendrickson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book gave me so many feelings!

Absolutely beautiful coming of age story.  These are quickly becoming a new favorite for me and this story does not disappoint.  Jessup Mason is an amazing book boyfriend and the story is told with such beauty, depth, rawness, and emotion that you really feel a strong connection to the characters (Alex & Jess).  The story ties together in an artistically beautiful way.  I shed some tears, I held my breath, I laughed.  I love how real this book feels, it's easy to connect to Sprayberry and the Mason's.  100% recommend this book!  Great read!...

Dorianna - Catherine Stine

DoriannaDorianna by Catherine Stine

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Received from NetGalley for an honest review...

I read this book fairly fast, I found myself skimming parts.  The story flows really well and the writing is excellent.  I found the "powers" confusing.  I do understand the book is supposed to be superficial and show how far one will go for popularity and fame.  I was pretty excited to read this especially being a YA Dorian Gray.  I was turned off by most of the characters and did not feel a connection to Dorianna at all.  (I liked Bailey!)  I think this book WILL strongly appeal to teenagers especially with social media and popularity being the theme, which is the YA market.  Personally, for adults who read YA I did not feel this was for me even a little bit.  I would still recommend others read it and decide for themselves and I would really recommend this for the YA genre it is marketed for.  I could easily picture my friends siblings reading this.

Rules of Survival - Jus Accardo

Rules of SurvivalRules of Survival by Jus Accardo

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book.  The content was light and it was a fun and fast read.  The chemistry between the main characters was cute, I enjoyed the twists as they came.  I thought the concept of bounty hunter and girl on the run for murder being shackled together was unique and Jus Accardo is a great storyteller so the story flowed really well and tied up nicely in the end!

Up For Grabs - Heather Young Nichols

Up For GrabsUp For Grabs by Heather Young-Nichols

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a quick read, in fact I started it and didn't put it down until I was finished (2 AM)... If you are looking for a fairly happy book with a dreamy, swoon worthy, perfect guy then this is the book for you.  Flannery was a really fun heroine with quick wit and a smart mouth.  I expected more drama from reading the blurb but this is a fairly happy feel-good book.  I really enjoyed spending a few hours with Cain and Flannery.  The secondary characters were really well developed and you couldn't help but want to be a part of their inner circle.

The Traveling Man - Jane Harvey-Berrick

The Traveling Man (The Traveling Duet, #1)The Traveling Man by Jane Harvey-Berrick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, this book was incredible.  I don't even know what to do with my life while I wait for the next book... The carnival world that Jane Harvey-Berrick built was absolutely mesmerizing and magical.  I fell in love with Aimee and Kes when they were only 10.  This book is really well written and will draw you in from the beginning.  I felt so many emotions reading this.
