Mini-Reviews Monday #7

Mini-Reviews Monday is a monthly series in which I attempt to get caught up on reviews in bulk. These reviews are a highlight reel instead of an in-depth look into my time reading these novels. If you would like an in-depth version of my review, let me know in the comments!

Accidental Groom (Accidental Love Book 1)Accidental Groom by Dana Mason

Genres: Romance

Rating: DNF

Wow a time.

Honestly, I am a sucker for accidental marriages but this one didn’t do it for me folks. Off the bat we are hit with this blinding insta-love attraction where our Hero invites our heroine to a comedy festival to take her mind off her recent breakup and betrayal–and because he can’t stand to be away from her. Not even after an hour of meeting him, she agrees and off they go. I got to 42% before I decided to DNF this novel as the writing and dialogue were super cheesy and I felt like the relationship between our main characters Mac and Kelley was never real or felt real. Every single scene felt rushed like we were on fast forward to get to the big plot points, making each transition (if you can call them that) and scene feel not worth my time.

 

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

DNF @ 88 Pages. 

This is probably a case of right book,wrong reader because I tried so ducking hard to make it through fam. I did…I really, really did. But wow, was this a struggle. The first chapter gripped me from the first page (honestly still want a book dedicated to the stache) but as soon as I hit chapter 2–it was like a completely different book. The descriptions and inner dialogue felt super dragged out and the dialogue felt off. There were moments that drew me back into the story, however those moments were super brief and I was instantly pulled out and back to dragged and pulling my teeth to continue. By the time I got to 88 I realized, that I was suffering just to make it to 100 and this wasn’t going to be a splendid time.

Dry SpellDry Spell by Vi Keeland

Genres: Erotica

Simply put: a big novella of WTF?

Hella Awkward in the beginning and super abrupt at the end. No Steam…no nothing really, except for second-hand embarrassment for the main character. Truly a time folks.

  1. Six of Crows is one that I’ve got on my list to read after discovering Leigh Bardugo last year. All I’ve heard is how amazing it is but then the occasional review will pop up where it’s a ‘nah’ which makes me feel better just in case I *don’t* like it. It seems to be universally loved so while I’m still hoping I do love it I’m glad that people are honest when they don’t.

  2. Wow, don’t know if I’ve ever seen a DNF of SoC! I’ve never read it myself, but I have to say it’s a little refreshing seeing someone not completely gush over it 🙂 especially as the non-fantasy reader that I am.
