3 mini reviews and 4 teeny tiny reviews

3 Mini reviews of books I've read this year:

REASONS I FELL FOR THE FUNNY FAT FRIEND [Becca Ann] - This was a sweet and sexy YA romance  and I would read it again. Yes, it was funny, but also sad in parts. It certainly had a good ending. If you crave YA romance like I am craving chippies and lollies right now, then you should totally read this one!

HOOKED [Liz Fichera] - Another book I would definitely read again. I'm a sucker for sweet romance, but this was also a good story. It was a bit uncomfortable at times witnessing the racism/prejudice, but I think it allowed Fred's strength to shine through (and yes, Fred's a girl). And I hear there's another book forthcoming focusing on Sam, so bring that on!

BESTEST. RAMADAN. EVER. [Medeia Sharif] - A fun read, though I found myself cringing quite often over Almira's behaviour. Maybe because I recognised some of my own high school self in her? haha. The main focus, the way I see it, was on Almira finding her place in her family's culture (Middle Eastern), within a completely different culture (American). Don't know if I'd read it again but I'd totally read other works by the author.

Aaaand...4 really tiny reviews of the other books I've read:

THE ACCIDENTAL DIVA [Tia Williams] - African American Sex and the City, but with a darker dash via Jay's story.

GONE [Jennifer Mills] - A darkly humorous, sad trek across the Australian landscape and one guy's broken mind (review).

BETTER OFF FAMOUS? [Jane Mendle] - Light and fluffy YA that made me giggle a lot.

A MEMORY OF LIGHT (WoT #14) [Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson] - The final instalment in a seemingly endless epic fantasy series I wish RJ had been around to finish himself.

  1. A Memory of Light was the only book I recognized out of those, I'm glad you read so many that you've enjoyed so much.

  2. Wow. I wish I could read as fast as you. LOVED Reasons. :)

  3. I LOVE mini-reviews.
    I read Becca Ann's book as she's one of my crit partners, and I did her cover, lol. Loved that book.
    Sharif's book was super cute. I read it on the plane and then handed it to a teen girl a few rows up who kept glancing over the cover...

  4. So good of you to stay on top of it all! I can't really tell if I'm coming or going most of the time, let alone staying up on reviewing all I read! I DO want to read Bestest. Ramadan. Ever.

  5. Mini reviews are the best! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Finally!! Books I've read too. (I must read nothing that other people read!) Funny Fat Friend was sweet and humorous and I actually saw a bit of teen me in that one.
    Bestest Ramadan...loved how real Almira was...yes she had warts, but she was working on them. But my favorite part of the book was the grandpa. He just tickled me. Yes, he would call me (and Santa) infidels...but I love him. I love a man with principles!


Thanks for your words, me hearties! and don't forget to leave a link to your blog somewhere I can find it!
