Hello my dear friends! I hope you are having a fantastic start to your week. Today, I will be doing two mini reviews, since I am behind and I’m trying to catch up. The books that I’ll be reviewing today are Wherever She Goes by Kelley Armstrong and Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich. I was really disappointed by the former, while I liked the latter. Let’s get started!
2 stars | Goodreads
The mystery was really meh. I enjoyed Bree’s family drama more than the mystery, and that was honestly the only reason why I finished the book. The ending was so underwhelming, and I think the author was trying too hard. It felt flat, and I wanted to roll my eyes a lot. In the end, I gave it two stars because the family drama was interesting.
One sentence summary: An interesting family drama with a meh mystery.
2.5 Stars | Goodreads
This was a cute and easy read and I liked it. Emerson can be annoying, but he’s still very funny. I thought Riley was cute, especially when she tried to back out of Emerson’s plans every single time, but still managed to find herself in the middle of everything. The ending was good, had a bit of suspense, and some humor. The mystery was really meh, and pretty far-fetched for me, but it didn’t annoy me too much. This was like the book that you read, just for the sake of reading, and not really for the plot or characters. In the end, I gave this 2.5 stars rounded up to three.
One sentence summary: An easy and humorous mystery, with okay characters.
