Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

The Marketing on Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten was the only reason I picked up this book. I’m not usually a reader of YA Mystery, which is usually angsty and shallow. I expected something different when I read it though. I highly enjoyed Gone Girl and Thirteen Reasons Why – but when you stop to think about it – the whole book seems quite obvious now when you add the first line of the synopsis to the title of the book and suddenly the plot twist is quite evident.

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson was one of those middle of the road books that is so hard to review. I enjoyed it but found enough wrong with it that I can’t give it a glowing review. I did find the premise interesting and the characters compelling, but I also found that it was rather immature at times and repetitive. I also found that a lot of the plot was not explained which was a bit of a frustration, because it did have a lot of potential and Sanderson’s writing style is…well epic.

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

Royally Screwed was one of those guilty pleasure romance that I so enjoy. Sure, it’s a romance involving a royal and a commoner, something that’s been done a few times, but Emma Chase made it funny, sexy, and added a few twists and turns that made it fresh. The narration by Andi Arndt and Shane East was a pleasure to listen to, making this a MUST LISTEN audiobook.

Dead Souls by J. Lincoln Fenn

DEAD SOULS by J. Lincoln Fenn is a novel that took me by surprise. It’s one of those novels where you can’t stand the heroine, but you like the book anyway. Fenn’s complex plot and abject ability to capture logic in evil makes this story great and also horrifying. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more intense, things got crazy. I enjoyed listening to this book. If it wouldn’t have been a gore fest at the end, I might have enjoyed it more, giving it a 5-star – but really it was worth the listen and I’m sure you’ll find it quite entertaining.
