Everneath - Brodi Ashton
The beginning of the book had me doubting if I wanted to finish it. I would say I was sceptical till around page 75, and then, then it got a lot better. All of a sudden a book I was 100 pages ago in regular intervals putting down with a bored sigh, I was now unable to put down. Before I knew it I had only 100 pages left. To sum it up: I really liked this book.

There is a lot of romance in this book I would say, but this didn't put me off at all because it was well executed in my opinion.

Nikki is a believable character and I find myself really invested in how she’s doing and what will happen to her. I empathize with her struggles in how to make things right, and at the same time not get too attached since she’s leaving again soon. Especially with her former boyfriend Jack, the tension she feels when around him is palpable.

I also really liked how the focus is on her relationship with her family and friends, and not just focusing on her relationship with Jack. The family and friends can be just as hurt and is just as important.

Cole was one of my favourite characters. Cynical with a softer side you only catch a glimpse of here and there. His draw to Nikki is apparent, the reason for his draw is not always as apparent, which made the book a lot more interesting to me.

A Modern Witch (A Modern Witch, #1)

A Modern Witch - Debora Geary This book just wasn't for me. It was very cosy and sweet and such, but it was so much of it. Nothing to worry about, no huge emotional turn for the worse, except for a minor weird fight.

It seemed everyone was so very accepting all the time, which I guess is good, but not very entertaining or believable.

I'm not saying every books need emotional trauma, but this was just so much love, icecream and sensitive guys I just didn't buy it at all.

Sweet story, but that's it.

Out of The Easy

Out of The Easy - Ruta Sepetys,  Lauren Fortgang This book is wonderful. I personally really enjoy historical fiction. In addition I have a thing for books playing out in the southern states of the US. This book definitely fit my bill.

Josie is a strong woman, although she doesn't seem to be too aware of it most of the time. She is lovable, strong with the ability to be afraid and trying to find her way in life.

All the characters are genuine real people. The best part is that the author isn't afraid to make her characters real bad guys, and she doesn't get anyone off easy.

I really recommend this book for anyone who wants to read about a thriving world in 50s New Orleans, with well formed characters with depth.
Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost I was skeptical before reading this book. I chose a lot of other books to read before i started on this series. When i finally got to reading it, it sucked me in and didn't let me out before I was done.

The book is a bit corny at times, and it isn't mind altering literature, but it is so unbelievably entertaining! The story had a nice pace, suspense, a strong heroine, a "don't-mess-with-me" hero, who really isn't a hero, just a badass, a really hot badass. Another thing that made this books so appealing to me, was the love story. I'm a sucker for a good love story and this one felt real to me.

And the sex scenes are very literal, so literal a co-worker asked me why I was blushing so much when I was reading it during my lunch break at work.

It made me start right on the second book, and dreading when there were no books left. Which is why I haven't read the last two installments, I'm saving them for a vacation.

All in all, I recommend this book for all PNR fans, romance fans, and to a degree paranormal fans that can take some romance.
