Hello fellow bookworms, I’m here today with 2 smaller reviews of full length books. I’ve decided to do smaller ones as there wasn’t much I had to say about them both, other than that I really enjoyed them so I decided to just condense them into this smaller post.
The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum by Kirsten Weiss.
Overall rating – 4 out of 5 stars.
For a freebie off the Amazon Kindle store The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum did not disappoint!
I found this book so easy to read, and to get sucked into – which is no way a criticism, it was just a well written and enjoyable story.
The whole book was just so cosy and mysterious and really played on that whodunnit theme, which I thought was done really well. It built up the suspense, dropped little hints and clues here and there and wasn’t totally outlandish with the perpetrator.
The finger was pointed at absolutely everyone and I loved it. We were really kept guessing right until the author wanted to reveal to us who it was – it literally could have been anybody!
Everything within this story just made sense and concluded brilliantly, it held a steady pace the whole way through and built the tension up and dipped it down again as and when it needed to. Everything just worked so well together to craft this really interesting little read.
Explicit by Roxy Sloane.
Overall rating – 5 out of 5 stars.
As another freebie from Amazon I wasn’t holding out much hope for this one, but I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY!
I devoured this book so quickly, it was easy to just get lost in the story and when I was rooting for our main character (Ellie) I had to keep reading because I had hoped so much that she got her happy ending.
The characters were the real standout of this book for me, Ellie was independent and driven, Jackson was painted as the bad boy we all love, but really was a softie with some issues and Ellie’s friends added that feeling of girl power the story.
Explicit just flowed so well, the story built up and dipped at the right moments, it made me laugh out loud, gasp and even cry at points, and the sex scenes were brilliantly written, they were perfectly smutty! While I do wish it was longer, I appreciate that there couldn’t have been much more to go into the story without losing some of those feelings it had already crafted.
Oh and special mention because Ellie works in publishing, it was a book about books! And sex and love of course, but it featured books!
I loved both of these books, and I would definitely recommend, although probably to different audiences! They were both well worth the read and I’m glad I decided to pick them up.
Until next time, Em xxx
