Jenny's Review: Kissing Tolstoy by Penny Reid

Rating: 4 Stars

Our thoughts...

Penny Reid’s writing and her characters just make me happy. Sometimes they make me cry but even then, I love it all. Kissing Tolstoy made me happy. I ate this story up and wanted more but was happy with how things end. Isn’t that how it should be, though? The story ends well and readers are left craving more purely for selfish reasons and not because the story was lacking. I feel that way with every Penny Reid book I read and I love it.

Jenny's Audioslave Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by

Title: When Dimple Met Rishi
Author: Sandhya Menon
Genre: Contemporary NA Romance
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Pub Date: May 30, 2017
Story Rating: 3 Stars
Narration Rating: 3 Stars

Our thoughts...

This story is very sweet and cute and I LOVE the cover. I had some minor issues here and there but nothing worth complaining about. I enjoyed seeing things from Dimple and Rishi's perspectives and learning new things. I especially liked seeing how the characters and I are so different and yet still so similar (well, college-me). I wasn't wowed but I enjoyed myself and recommend picking it up.

Regarding the narration: the narrator for Dimple did a very nice job but the gentleman who narrated for Rishi was inconsistent and had the tenancy to add drama that made him sound like he was auditioning for the voice-over guy role in trailers for suspense movies. He was hit and miss and I honestly think it affected my impressions of the story negatively.

This series gets better with each book. Book one Ruthless King ended with a cliff hanger and had me wanting book two right then. Thank goodness the wait wasn’t too long.

Jenny's Review: Without Merit by Colleen Hoover

Title: Without Merit
Author: Colleen Hoover
Genre: Contemporary
Publisher: Atria Books

Pub Date: October 3, 2017
Rating: 3.5 Stars

Our thoughts...

Without Merit has an important story and message to tell and I think it is beneficial to read it. I do recommend this book for the message alone, but I do take issue with some things. Mainly, that it feels like an afterschool special (Hoover even pokes fun at that at one point) where scenes feel rehearsed instead of organic. Events don’t unfold naturally but forced or rehearsed (if a novel can feel rehearsed). The flow of the story is in a chunky fashion of fiction with mini-lessons thrown in rather than a cohesive blend of the two important aspects. A chunk of story and then a chunk of information, repeat. I really wish the important messages and moments blended into the story in a smoother way. I think they would be even more impactful and easier to relate to but they are impactful regardless.

I can’t even put into words how much I loved this book! All I knew when I first saw the cover and read the blurb was that I had to read this. I am so glad I did. This book has all the feels and will stay with you once you finish.
