Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd Review

Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd ★★

I'm not sure what I was expecting to get from this book, and I had low expectations, but it ended up being underwhelming. 

Too much happened too fast in the end of this book, it seemed like the author was trying to tie up everything before the book got to 400 pages. 

The characters in this book honestly annoyed me so much and basically had no actual emotions or feeling. I had no interest whatsoever for the characters and what happened to them. It seemed like the author was trying to get every single minority for a character into this book, which I don't mind, if it's done well. 

It was hard for me to picture the characters and the scenes in this book. It felt like it wasn't painting a vivid picture of what was going on.

Goblins.......also annoyed me, they didn't really add much to the book except that they were helping and them they were gone? 

The Paris setting was one of the few things I did love about this book. Especially when Anouk …

5 Tips On How to Get Out of a Reading Slump

It always happens when an anticipated release has just come out or you have a ton of 'more important' things to do as non-readers say....the dreaded
READING SLUMP
You can feel yourself falling into not caring what happens to characters or just wanting the book to be over. Well do I have some tips on how to get out of a reading slump fast!

1. Reread a favorite book 
Sometimes all it takes for you to get out of a reading slump, is to read about some familiar characters! I've done this with a few of the first YA books I read.


2. Watch a TV show or movie
You have to be careful with this one, because if you get sucked into the void (Netflix), you might never come out. That said, it's always nice to just enjoy some TV!


3. Listen to an audiobook
You might not feel like reading, but it's nice to be able to listen to the book, anywhere...I've listened to audiobooks' whose narrators have made the books even better, with their amazing multiple voices.

4. Take a break
It's c…

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black Review

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black ★★★★★ “This is what you wanted, isn’t it?” he asks. “What you sacrificed everything for. Go on. It’s all yours."
Jude and her sisters live in the Court of Faerie, only they're outsiders, known as mortals to the rest of the Court. Jude wants nothing more then to belong, but many of the fey despise humans. As Jude becomes more deeply embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, she discovers her own capacity for trickery and bloodshed. But as betrayal threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
I started reading this book last month and stopped because I just wasn't feeling it, but I'm SO glad I picked it up again! The Cruel Prince's plot is a slow-going at first, but once it does pick up, it's definitely worth the wait.The world is extremely well built along with a fair amount of spying, along with royalty of course. I love when …
