Teagan Hunter – Let’s Get Textual (Texting, #1) | Review

Let’s Get Textual is a romance novel written by Teagan Hunter. The story is told from the perspective of Delia who gets a strange text message. She decides to reply and so her adventure begins. Delia and Zach (the sender of said message) start texting and eventually fall in love.

Weirdly, this is one of the most realistic romance books set in college. The virtual “meet-cute” is definitely something that rarely happens, however, we all have that friend with the weirdest stories. I guess this book is that friend.

I can’t say I loved this book. It was okay. Actually, the perfect word to describe it is mild. The book was mild. I wasn’t bored when I was reading it, but I wasn’t excited to pick it up when the time came. The characters were quite one-dimensional and lacked depth. We didn’t really get to peek beneath the surface. For example, Delia was afraid of quickly getting into a relationship. She said that a few times, but it was never shown. In the moments when I expected her to be hesitant or afraid of the potential relationship with Zach, that simply wasn’t there.

43319994._sy475_The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren is a sweet romance novel. It’s not my first Christina Lauren book and I must say I am pleasantly surprised how much more I enjoyed this one in contrast to the previous ones.

“And I get it. As much as I hate him . . . I think I’m starting to like us.”

We follow the story of Olive and Ethan. They are enemies. A few years ago Olive’s twin sister Ami and Ethan’s brother Dane started dating. So, soon, Ethan and Olive met. Olive felt an immediate attraction to Ethan, however, he didn’t seem interested. Actually, he was visibly repulsed by her appearance. This triggered years of rivalry between them. Fast forward to Ami and Dane’s wedding… under unusual circumstances everyone but Olive and Ethan got food poisoning. A decision was struck that they should then go on the honeymoon vacation so it would go to waste since the bride and the groom were half alive.

Sally Thorne – The Hating Game | Review

25883848._sy475_The Hating Game is a romance novel written by Sally Thorne. The story follows two work colleagues, Lucy and Joshua, who hate each other. Since the day they have started working in the same office they spend every day arguing and playing „hate games“ such as the Staring Game or the How You Doing game. The story is told exclusively from Lucy’s point of view so we are unable to know how Josh feels about her. We watch as their relationship develops from rivalry to romance. And it is beautiful.

“Joshua is glaring at me with angry eyebrows. I use my brainwaves to transmit an insult to him, which he receives and pulls himself up straight.”

Hannah Mary Rothschild – The Improbability of Love | Review

large_improbability_of_loveThe Improbability of Love is an amazing mix of fiction, art, history, the life of a person intertwined in all of those with a splash of intrigue added to it. The author Hannah Mary Rothschild does an amazing job with this novel, particularly with characters. The characters are “real”, they have stories which shaped them to be who they are, their motives for their actions are logical and you cannot help yourself but feel for them.

The writing itself wasn’t amazing, the dialogue was a bit unrealistic and the author used a bit too many adjectives to describe minuscule things. However, this did not endanger my reading experience at all. I simply noticed it.
