ARC Review: Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg

Hello!

I have another review for you guys today! I was looking at the website Netgalley the other day because used to use the website a fair bit until a few months ago. At that time I’d requested and received a couple books I ended up not finishing cause I didn’t really like them. Since I didn’t finish them, I also didn’t review them. Which if you’ve ever used Netgalley, you know is a bad thing. The whole point is to receive advanced copies of books in exchange for reviews. So, I haven’t shown my face around that website in awhile. 😉 But decided to go back, because I really likd it! I thought I’d try to make myself seem like less of a schmuck by downloading a couple “read now” books (these are books you don’t need the publisher’s approval to receive. They are there for the downloading if you have an account with Netgalley) and review those, so publishers know I’m back in the game.

Anyway, long story short, the first book I chose was Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg, the same author who write the Paper Magicians trilogy. I really want to read those books too, but that’s another topic.  This book  was listed as an adult fantasy novel, which seemed interesting, and I also love the cover. The description made this book sound whimsical and magical. Sort of a fun fairytale type of story. It’s about a woman who has no memory of her past or heritage, but can bake emotions into her pastries. She can make you feel strong, loved, happy, hopefully, and lots of other things by infusing her magic into your morning muffin. Now, I’m a small-time baker, so I loved this concept from the beginning. If you’d like to read the entire book synopsis, click here for the Goodreads page.

ARC Mini Review: Return to Me by Taylor W. Law

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I’ll be honest. Going into this book, I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it. Not because I didn’t think the synopsis sounded promising, but because this book is pretty far out of my usual reading comfort-zone. It’s an adult romance novel, set in a Christian town. All of those things are very unrelated to my usual reading habits ;). However, once I started reading, I was instantly pulling into this story. I really enjoyed reading from this main character’s perspective. Jill has a very real narrative in … Continue reading ARC Mini Review: Return to Me by Taylor W. Law

ARC Mini-Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Good afternoon all! Below is a short review for the beautiful book, Everything Everything, which I was lucky enough to read before its official release on September 1st, 2015! I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.    I was very excited to read this book! After hearing raving reviews and gazing at the lovely cover, my expectations were pretty high. I’m happy to say I was not disappointed. While the contemporary genre is not my most favorite, mostly because I like a little action/mystery/paranormal in my books, I read this book in one sitting. The … Continue reading ARC Mini-Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
