Reading Round Up February 11th – 20th

Hi Guys and happy Monday! I hope you are having a great last day of the month and finishing up any books that you can! Here is my second round up for the month and I should hopefully have my last one out in a few days!

The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas – 3 Stars I was really hyped for this book since I kept seeing it everywhere and it won a Goodreads award for debut book but man it let me down. I felt this book was super long and kind of boring. It really needed some editing and then maybe it would have been a better read. I was also disappointed that we did not actually go to Spain until halfway through the book. Overall this book was meh for me.

Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell – 3 Stars. This was another book that I was excited for and it was a Goodreads nominee but again it was overly. long and the middle dragged. I am curious to read another from this author and see how their next book is. If you like space operas with some romance than you might want to check this one out.

A River Enchanted by Rebecca Ross – 4 Stars I picked this book up on a whim since it was a Book of the month pick and I am so glad I did. It was fantasy book that reminded me of Juliet Marillier’s Warrior Bard series with it’s writing style and fantasy elements. If you like more lyrical fantasy then I would check this one out. I can’t wait for the next one in this series.

In A New York Minute by Kate Spencer – DNF The premise of this book sounded really cute and I was excited to start it but after getting to about 51% I decided this book was not for me. We are Franny who has just been let go and then has a wardrobe disaster on the subway that gets filmed and goes viral. Her disaster and subsequent meet cute ends up leading her to a few job opportunities. Hayes, who came to her rescue on the subway that day ends up hiring her for a job and the two could not be any more different but they seem to have a mutual attraction. I am not sure what exactly it was about this book that I didn’t connect with but the characters were part of it. I just was not interested in either of Franny or Haye’s story lines or the romance that Im sure was going to come. Let me know if you have read this one and what your thoughts were. Thank you Forever Publishing for my gifted copy for review.
