Mini Reviews (12)

I really need to catch up on NetGalley reviews so all of the mini-reviews this week are from NetGalley.

I really wanted to love this one but I just ended up feeling disappointed. It wasn't a bad story but I just didn't love the characters.  I actually liked Henry of Navarre the best out of everyone.  Margot was supposed to be really tough (and at times she was) but other times she was just kind of pathetic.  She let the Duc de Guise use her and just fell all over herself to make him happy when he was a self-centered jerk.  It was just kind of painful to watch.  It wasn't a bad book (I enjoyed the historical aspects of it) but it could have been so much better. 3 stars.

This was an interesting read.  I really liked how it was split into different characters' perspectives so you can get a little more background about each person in the story.  I found The Guest Room to be pretty riveting and it kept me interested from page 1.  I will say that some of the characters (Phillip, Spencer, etc) are completely disgusting, immature pigs and at times, their behavior made me want to throw the book across the room.  The ending was a huge surprise and I'm still not sure how I feel about it.  Overall, a decent read.  3 stars.

I love this series and now I love Connor!  He has always been a fun secondary character but he is now one of my favorites.  He was such a sweet guy and I felt so bad that Jessica was always kind of hard on him.  I understand she has issues but she really put Connor through the wringer sometimes.  Like all of the previous books, everything works out in the end and it wound up being a super sweet book.  I really don't want this series to end! 4 stars.
