Main points WOW! I LOVED it. Of course, I didn’t expect anything different, but this book made it 100% for sure that Diantha Jones is one of my favorite authors and can do no wrong. I still want to read ALL of her books. Just about 200% more now. Okay okay okay let’s get down to it. This story was so deliciously steampunk—and, well, steamy. Not gonna lie. It’s beautiful. There are all kinds of jokes as well—clean as well as dirty. I appreciated that we didn’t get right into the skin-on-skin action early on—we […]

THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD! This is one of those books that gets better the more you think about it. Like my excitement about it magnified at least 40x between finishing the book and now, writing the review.
I’m a sucker for books on dream travel, so I knew I had to pick this one up. I’m so glad I did. It’s pretty much everything I want in a dream travel fiction adventure (and it’s my third this year so I do have things to compare it to). I just LOVE the concept of it. Add in a fantasy-like world that needs a savior? AND a hot mysterious annoyingly-smug and mercurial military leader? I’m sold. I’m HOOKED.
This book totally kept me coming back for more. If I could have read it all in one sitting I would have. I found myself wishing she would hurry through her day so we could get to the dreams, but her waking world was important to, and it took her a while to even realize what she was dreaming. So the pacing was perfect.
Main points This book was great! I liked the realness of it all. I liked how even though Annie had been through some stuff, she didn’t allow it to cloud her brain and she was still able to make sensible decisions, even if she couldn’t handle her emotions at times. That’s normal. And it felt believable. It was great that Cami was there for her from the beginning. Annie was really lucky to have someone to help introduce her to the world, even if Cami needed someone to keep an eye on her as well. […]
Main Points This was a fun, quick read! I couldn’t put it down until I read over half of it (it didn’t help that most of the first half was about one single day haha). The beginning was fast-paced, but slowed down a bit in the second half. Some parts of this book were cliché, certainly. Punk girl starts off hating snobby country star but then falls for him. Not only that, but she has a gay best friend and her only other guy friend is someone she was interested in. (It’s okay to be […]
I LOVED this. It was amazing. It was addicting. I couldn’t put it down.
Of course, parts of it really didn’t make sense…they kept feeling this undeniable attraction even though they didn’t know each other at all, and Max seemed to have no self-control at the most random times but acted like a total jerk at others. And Charlotte really wasn’t as I expected either—I didn’t expect her to wear her emotions on her sleeve, but that’s who she was, and I admired that because it took out the whole mind-game aspect that a lot of relationships (and potential ones) have. Honestly that probably saved a lot of time. The book would have been twice as long, I’m sure of it.
