Carrier of the Mark - Review

Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

Book Breakdown 

This book felt very early YA. If you've read YA since it really took off then you know what I mean. Everything feels very... compact and rather lack on some of the details. It just has that young YA feel. I don't really know how else to describe it. 

Then that brings in the Twilight vibes... the guy going against his family and being with the girl anyway... how possessive he is for her.... there's more but I don't want to spoilt the book. Then there is the insta-love. I mean in this one there is kind of a reason for it but still.... I hate insta-love so much. It's the only trope that drives me insane. So don't even ask me how I finished this book, but I did. 

It does get better as it goes along but I can't help but like Rían better than Adam. I wish she'd chosen that brother.... anyway, that is just personal taste. I loved the Ireland setting, that's honestly the only reason I picked up this novel and I loved that part of it. I need to find more books set there as I just love Ireland so much, I hope to visit one day. 

The character development is fine and dandy, just as good as any other book. The story is interesting enough and kept me reading, it was cool to see Irish folklore in a book for once. Overall, it's not a bad book just a fun average quick read.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
