6 Bullet Reviews

Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful day! Thank you for stopping by my little piece of the internet. I've got a lot of reviews that I need to get done but they aren't long enough for their own post so I wanted to put them all together here in one post. We'll got a little bit of everything so let's just get to it! 

Sophie can't wait to get our of her dead-end small town and move to NY and fulfill her dreams of being a designer, so her life can finally begin but what if what she's looking for is right under her nose?

Sophie hates her small town and wants to get out of it like her father. So I couldn't relate to her very well, I miss my small town and hate big cities. But as the book goes on she sees just what she has and while she doesn't give up on her dreams, she no longer looks down on her small town. This is a cute book that not only has a cute romance but finds a young girl slowly growing up and seeing the real world for what it is.

The writing is wonderful like always and the book ends in HEA. I know that I'm slowly moving out of YA but I still love Kasie West novels because they are just so cute and sweet and the perfect escape from life.

I don't rate one star often but this was just boring! I saw so many people saying it was creepy and should be read with the lights on but I fell asleep twice while trying to read it! Twice!

I kept hoping it would get better and while it did pick up a little towards the end... it just wasn't enough. I also found two little grammar mess ups that drove me insane. This isn't self published, it shouldn't have those two mess ups. One was just a lack of space between two words. So basic and easy to catch and fix. 

Bottom line: This wasn't for me. 

The writing is very flowery and over the top. That being said, I like it! It feels very magical and otherworldly. Don't let the flowery prose fool you, this book is dark! Really dark. If you are sensitive to dark themes then DO NOT read this book. You won't like it. The drugs bothered me a lot. Enough that I'll be dropping half a star for it. Though I do like how the drugs were used... if that makes any sense at all. I don't wanna spoil anything. But in my eyes they weren't looked on... positively? I guess.

I love that this book doesn't shy away from heavy topics and shows just how dark life can be. I love the depression era setting. The romance and just how the characters never give up. That being said, it's not a happy book. It's not one to read when you want to escape the world. It's dark and gritty. It will probably make you a bit uncomfortable. That being said, this story will haunt you long after you've finished the last page.

This at face value would be my perfect cup of tea, no drugs, no cheating by the MCs and it's well written and cute.... but there was a scene that just grossed me out. Sorry but it did. I won't mention it because I want to keep my blog a family friendly space. I will just say it was a sexual scene that didn't sit well with me.

It's well written, cute, and has the couple growing together. Sure the heroine wasn't my favorite but Zach more than made up for it.

I don't do humor. My partner likes to say that I'm the most joyless person he's ever met because I'm usually a serious person. I mean I'll laugh at jokes if I find them funny but most things that normal people find funny just aren't to me? Okay no idea where I'm taking this, all I meant was that this book had me laughing out loud and giggling like a little girl. 

The MC has a smart mouth and our hero just gives it right back to her so their banter had me laughing so hard that my stomach would hurt. 

If you're looking for a cute and funny as can be romance novel, this is for you! Trust me, you'll love it.

I've not read a debut this good in such a long time!

Reverie follows Kane Montgomery after a car accident left him with amnesia. He's just trying to get his life back together and get through high school but he starts to notice that something just isn't right...

I won't lie this is one of the gayest novels that I've ever read and it was pretty dang magical. The world is rich and reminds me of a rainbow but only with words. The characters are well developed and the idea for this novel... I love anything with alternative timelines or reality and this really fits that with the reveries. I loved the Others and learning more about how all this works and the world-building.

I won't give away anything so it's hard to gush about all the stuff that I want to talk about but this book is amazing! If you were on the fence about it just jump over and buy the book, you'll be so pleased with this story.

I was given this novel in exchange for an honest review - Thank you!

P.S. That cover is so beautiful that I can't even!


Well that's it for today. Have you read any of these? What did you think? Let me know below and have a great day!
