The Tribe by Gary Paul Corcoran

The TribeThe Tribe by Gary Paul Corcoran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The Tribe” illustrates an unconventional tale of a group of people living together in a community built by Steven Fitzgerald, a wealthy entrepreneur. The author did a great job in incorporating different characters without missing a beat on the story line. You’ll love how Corocoran demonstrates the complexities of each character, how they relate to each other, how they responds to the tribe’s concept and vision, and how they grow and develop throughout the story. Its complexity and being relatable, makes this an unforgettable read. Highly recommended!

Intentions of the Earl (Scandalous Sisters #1) by Rose Gordon

Intentions of the Earl (Scandalous Sisters #1)Intentions of the Earl by Rose Gordon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve always been a fan of regency romance novels. As long as there’s a “royalty” in the title, I surely can’t pass it up. This is the first book I’ve read from Rose Gordon. I like how she builds the characters, including their flaws and weaknesses. I like her writing style, although there are parts that are unnecessary which makes the story longer. Overall, I think I’d be open to read more of Rose Gordon’s books.

Desires of a Baron (Gentlemen of Honor, #2) by Rose Gordon

Desires of a Baron (Gentlemen of Honor, #2)Desires of a Baron by Rose Gordon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I like how the author created flawed characters with the “happy ever after” they both deserved. The plot is well-developed along with the twists and turns that keeps it connected with the other books in this series. As a regency romance fan, a story created with creativity and research is a must because building a world with lords and ladies is never easy. This doesn’t disappoint. Highly recommended!

The Belgrave Daughter (The Belgrave Legacy #1) by Zara Hoffman

The Belgrave Daughter (The Belgrave Legacy, #1)The Belgrave Daughter by Zara Hoffman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

I’ve read so many books on paranormal genre, but what makes this book different is that it treads on a different path. It is a refreshing read, especially if you’re into prophecies, witches and everything in the supernatural world. I love some of the characters like Alec and Ivy, but not Fawn (sorry). I don’t like that she turns into a whining teenager despite her being a college student.

There are also some instances that shows it is indeed a debut novel, like inconsistencies and repeated scenarios, which is not even needed. It only makes the book a long read despite the short plot. The scene wherein Fawn hated Caleb for what he did takes on several pages and it actually pushes me to boredom.

The plot is definitely something and despite the few unfavorable points, I would still love to know what will happen to Fawn and Caleb’s love story.

I would recommend this to paranormal lovers like me who wants a refreshing a fun read.

Before He Was Famous by Becky Wicks

Before He Was Famous (HotFlush, #1)Before He Was Famous by Becky Wicks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First off, I would like to advise you to have a hanky on hand as this will bring you tears of joy, sadness, and triumph. It also includes unlimited romance and butterflies in your stomach. =D

This is the first time I read a novel from Becky Wicks and I was reluctant at first. I assume that it will go along the usual story line and cheesiness like in most romance novel, but I was so wrong. With the first few chapters alone, I was totally HOOKED! This is one of the few novel’s I’ve read that doesn’t have any dull pages. I know that even some of the famous novels has its own dreary parts where we tend to skim just to reach the exciting ones, but this one is truly different. The author really knows what she’s doing and you can see that she really has the edge in becoming a great (& famous!) author.

The plot is very well-researched, as if you’re actually thrown in the midst of the rich and famous. I didn’t find any loopholes in the story line, which is usually the first thing I’d notice when reading a book. The characters are well created and established, making them all essential in building up the story. One of the lines I would never forget is “You have to fight to stay on the shore, no matter how many times it pushes you away.” I can’t wait to watch this line being told on the big screen. I wouldn’t even be surprised when this happens. This novel never fails to surprise me and the story’s twists and turns are definitely something to look forward to.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to fall in love again. This is definitely one of the stories you’ll never forget.

The Witch Who Cried Wolf by Sarah Mäkelä

The Witch Who Cried Wolf (Cry Wolf, #1)The Witch Who Cried Wolf by Sarah Mäkelä

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

This is definitely a good read, especially if you want a short story with an interesting plot. The characters are well-developed and everyone has given its fair share of the limelight. I also love the twist and turns in the story line, because it keeps me on edge as I turn every page. And because of this, I was able to finish this in one sitting. There are just few loopholes in the story line, but I hope answers can be found in the next book.

I’ll be very delighted to read more books written by this author and I hope to read more about Mia & Ethan’s love story. I just wished the next novel to be longer than this one. 🙂

This is highly recommended to paranormal fans who wants a good but short read.

True Believer by Nicholas Sparks

True Believer (Jeremy Marsh & Lexie Darnell, #1)True Believer by Nicholas Sparks

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Well, this is one of Nicholas Sparks’s books that I didn’t like that much. I really love the way Nicholas Sparks’ narrate his stories, but this one turns out to be too boring for me. I felt that the story is forcibly written, maybe due an incoming deadline or something. The characters aren’t relatable enough to make me believe their actions throughout the story. Maybe I just expected too much on this one.

But despite this moment of weakness, it doesn’t change the fact that Nicholas Sparks will always be one of my favorite writers.
