Weekly Wrap-Up April 9th-15th

This week I managed to read six books. Two physical books; one a re-read. And four e-books; three novella's one being an e-ARC.

Off the Record(Record #1) by K.A. Linde *

The Whitechapel Fiend(Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy #3) by Cassandra Clare ****
Jem, Will and Tessa are still and will forever be my people. Maureen Johnson did a pretty good job of capturing Clare's characters. But really just the fact that this story focuses more on 1888 London makes it infinitely better than the rest.

Too Late by Colleen Hoover ****
So I'm not the only one out there that totally ate this story up. I waited impatiently for the whole story to be posted before diving in because how in God's name would I be able to wait days or even hours after every chapter? Anyways, Too Late was quite a bit darker and little more mature than what we're used to from CoHo, Drugs, a drug house, a drug dealer, assault, guns, you get it. Like all of CoHo's books, this one was just as compelling and addicting. I was fully invested and really scared for Sloan's life. Carter was the shinning light. And Asa, well to put it plainly, he's fucked up. Weirdly, I liked his story line the best. What that says about is whatever. There was of course the romance. Sloan and Carter weren't my favourite couple, I think it their relationship had more time to develop I would have believed it more than just seeing it as something that was saving them both. I liked them, just didn't love them. Another great CoHo book. And a free one at that. I love how authors are using Wattpad more and more to give back to their readers.

Nothing but Shadows(Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy #4) by Cassandra Clare *
Awful. Simply awful. It's truly unfortunate that Sarah wrote this story as it so easily could have been fun. TID world in any way should be a favourite of mine. But nope. The writing was terrible. I'm pretty sure an infant could have added more personality into this bland and utterly boring tale.

Sidebarred(The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase *****
Review to come.

The Winner's Curse(The Winner's Trilogy #1) by Marie Rutkoski ****(re-read)
I did a re-read so I can finally continue/finish the trilogy. Find my original review here.

What did you guys read this week?

Happy reading!



  1. Still laughing at your ranty review of Off the Record. I'm sure I'll be reading Too Late soon. Can't wait to see something edgier from CoHo. Suh-weet! I love the covers of The Winner's Trilogy - so gorgeous!

    1. :/ :P
      Too Late was good. She just posted an epilogue and I would probably suggest on skipping it when you get there. Just makes you angry and the book to continue; which it won't be doing.
      The cover are GORGEOUS! I did a photo shoot with them because obvs.

    2. Ugh, thanks for the heads up about the epilogue. I'll remember that.
