I mostly read romance novels this year and I can honestly say that's because the 100 book goal was driving me on. But now, it's ingrained and I'm having trouble switching back to fantasy. Most of the books I'll share with you this month will be romance novels and these are no exception.
Book Review: Blood Gifted (The Dantonville Legacy, #1) by Tima Maria Lacoba
BloodGifted by Tima Maria Lacoba
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm always leery about reading a paranormal romance book. When Sherrilyn Kenyon is the first name you think of in the genre, it's really hard to find others that come close. In the way of world building, Tima Maria Lacoba came close with this book. The plot and action sequences were well done, too.
I had a bit of trouble understanding the heroine. She may mature slowly but does her mind process at the same rate? The reader would have to assume something of the sort for her to seem so utterly clueless to things she should've been aware of simply because she did have the capacity to observe what was going on around her for 50 years.
Other than that, there were a couple of places where sentences were obviously edited but some words weren't removed.
If you can get past those two things, then you'd probably enjoy reading this book, especially if you enjoy reading paranormal romances about vampires. I enjoyed it but I won't continue reading the series.

I just felt kind of let down by this book. I felt like it could've been so much more but was too short to really fill in spaces with awesome stuff. And at the end of the book, when the religion was brought into it, it seemed forced and ill-placed to me. I know I mentioned that above, but it really was jarring. If you're really into vampires and paranormal romance, you'll probably enjoy this one more than I did but if you're not, just skip it.
Book Review: (Not So) Perfect Chemistry by Kayla Tirrell
I think is probably my shortest review yet. :/ There really wasn't much I felt I needed to say beyond what you see in my review. I do think pre-teens and teens would enjoy it. I think it might make a better Netflix movie for that age group, especially since there was no sex and that seems so prevalent in most of the stuff made for them these days. I'd love to have a wider variety of options.
Did you see something that piqued your interest? If so, which one of these? What are you currently reading? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments or feel free to send me a message through my contact page.
