Sentinel  - Jennifer L. Armentrout Good ending. All the loose ends I was worried about were tied up nicely. I only had a few issues... like everyone forgiving Seth a little too easily... and the death of Olivia, like I didn't understand its purpose, I guess. Also, Lucian's death??

Twice Tempted

Twice Tempted - Jeaniene Frost So so good, and fun and humorous... there's nothing I hate about it!

Free to Fall

Free to Fall - Lauren   Miller I usually don't read dystopian type novels but this one worked for me (for the most part). It felt plausible for most of the book, but got kind of weird towards the end with the nanobots in flu vaccines + phones to control people... and deux ex machina of the solar flare storm?? deactivating them at the end... but overall enjoyed it. The romance was nice but not too annoying that people who aren't into romance would actually mind it.

Running Wild

Running Wild - S.E. Jakes Kind of... disappointed? I just didn't enjoy it as much as her other books. Maybe because I didn't like Sean at all (but kind of loved Ryker?). I feel overall mixed about it, some parts were great, but I struggled through others.

The Assassin and the Princess

The Assassin and the Princess - Sarah J. Maas Loved it, you can't go wrong with strong female assassin protagonists! The dreaded love triangle doesn't bog the whole thing down too much (mostly because I love both the boys). There's a lot of intrigue as well (I still don't know quite what is going on, hah). And one of my favorite female friendships ever!

Once Burned

Once Burned - Jeaniene Frost Enjoyed it, the ending was a bit anticlimactic, but I can't wait to read next book in this series.

The Selection

The Selection  - Kiera Cass It wasn't particularly exciting (especially for a dystopian) and I don't feel compelled to read the next book.

Prisoner of Night and Fog

Prisoner of Night and Fog - Anne Blankman Nice mix of historical w/ added fictional characters and situations. The psychoanalytical aspect (with regards to Gretchen's brother and Hitler's mental state) was pretty interesting. Seemed well researched. A bit slow at times, but I enjoyed the light romance element and suspense.

Love, in English

Love, in English - Karina Halle I loved the first half of this book, but then I struggled through the second half (a little too soapy for my taste she impulsively decides to move to Spain and then when things get tough (which she should have expected???), decides to break up with Mateo and move back).

The Fear Trials

The Fear Trials - Lindsay Cummings Gives a nice little introduction into what the world of "The Murder Complex" will be like.

Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone  - Leigh Bardugo Kind of slow but still enjoyed it.

City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire  - Cassandra Clare Sophie Turner and Jason Dohring did a great job with the audiobook.

It was a fine ending for the series, maybe a bit too long though. Devoted fans will probably enjoy it more than casual fans like me. None of the deaths in the book left me sad at all, oops, but happy endings for all the major character, so I guess that's a good thing...

The Art of Lainey

The Art of Lainey - Paula Stokes Cute, fun summer read. Loved the protagonist, loved the love interest, finished the book with a stupid grin on my face.

Ball & Chain

Ball & Chain  - Abigail Roux Definitely the weakest book in the series, but I still enjoyed it. A couple of things bothered me like Who exactly killed Burns??? And why wasn't Nick's father issues + surgery not saved for Sidewinders?! but that withstanding I still liked it enough to give it 4 stars, even though maybe it wasn't objectively a 4 star book for most folks...

Touch & Geaux

Touch & Geaux - Abigail Roux My favorite book in the Cut & Run series so far. I was an emotional wreck for most of the book and then the ending, ugh!

Daylight Again

Daylight Again - S.E. Jakes I can't really put into words how much I love this book (and series). It probably would just sound like "dgfhuighdfuighdfugi!!"
