Impossible Love
Impossible Love by Kimberly Readnour
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An enjoyable New Adult book.
As with any book with racy sex scenes some words come off as alarming. However, if felt that most X-rated words always came off as alarming, which made my reading experience somewhat unpleasant. I honestly think the book would have been much better if some of the more Adult words were not used. I say this because the main character, Kayla, came off as more of a teenager than an adult. Sure, she was 21 but she was a VERY inexperienced adult in many fashions. She portrayed herself as a very naive young lady with some immature reactions.
There were a few pop culture references of a recent Adult series-turned-movies that I also felt were unnecessary.

Favorite scene:
The Skype call.

The Form of Things Unknown
The Form of Things Unknown by Robin Bridges
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good new girl to new town book.
Centers around Natalie who has just had a heck of a break up, and is making new friends in her new home town after moving to help support her grandmother.

Main characters are well developed but I feel the supporting characters lacked in connection to the story. Such as Starla and Colton.

Overall, a decent read and a surprising ending.

And I Darken
And I Darken by Kiersten White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this book.
The major thing that I loved was that the story begins at the very beginning of the main character’s lives. Right from birth. This frightened me a bit because I thought maybe this would not progress to their young adult and adult lives. I was wrong and I loved having the whole story!
This book is full of details both in character and surroundings.
My first Ottoman Empire read and I truly enjoyed it.

The relationship between Lada and her younger brother Radu was an odd one. Lada is a special girl. She is a strong willed girl-woman in a man’s world. Thus, she must be brutal and overpowering to stand out among the boys and men of her world. Unfortunately she is more man than that of her brother who is weak and cries too much.

Overall, I found the character progression satisfying. I look forward to another story with these characters.
