First March Reads ~ Spring Break Recos!

Hi Everyone and Happy almost-Fri-YAY!

Last night, I started reading Sarah J. Maas’ new fantasy novel, House of Earth and Blood, and since I know this 799 page monster is going to be an emotional journey for me and will require its own, full review, I thought it would be a good idea for me to get all my backlogged reviews out here on my blog today.

The last two books I read (both during the beginning of this week) weren’t absolute superstars, but when I was thinking about them and how I wanted to frame this post, I realized that they would both make excellent March/Spring Break reads. They are both short and just the right blend of spicy and sweet, and I was able to blast through them very quickly. They could each easily be finished on a long flight or be casually thrown into a beach tote, and I could picture myself delving into them in a coffee shop or quiet hotel room. 

I highly recommend these both as vacay reads, so let me know if you do decide to pick either of them up at any point!

Bully by Penelope Douglas

Meh. This was okay, but it wasn’t the best romance I’ve ever read and it wasn’t even the best “bullying” romance I’ve encountered (I think that would be Paper Princess by Erin Watt, honestly). This book was entertaining, but so many aspects of the plot weren’t fleshed out enough (for example, Tate’s mom’s death, Tate’s science fair project, Tate’s relationships with her dad and grandmother), and I felt things were a bit too rushed for me to grow attached to any of the characters. But, I would be interested in reading more of Penelope Douglas’ work and I certainly didn’t hate this…it did leave me somewhat hot and bothered at least!

Husband Material by Emily Belden

I really really liked this book! Sure, it might not have been utterly brilliant, but it was an easy read that still managed to pack an emotional punch. Some of the plot was a bit rushed and contrived, but I adored Charlotte’s narration from the start and especially liked her witty stream of consciousness and her dialogue with Brian. This was a perfect romance read and I will definitely be recommending it to a few of my friends!
