Reviewing the Unreviewed: February 2021

I read a lot of books that I don’t end up reviewing for whatever reason. Some because I wasn’t impressed. Some because I didn’t have the time. Some I just wasn’t feeling it on whatever particular day I finished. Reviewing the Unreviewed is my monthly post where I share my few thoughts on all the books I didn’t formally review.

Nate by Tijan. Read February 18-21. 3 Stars.

I liked this, but I didn’t love it. Usually I hate the “Surprise! You’re a father!” trope, but there was kind of a twist on it here, so I didn’t mind it as much. I loved all the times we got to see Nate interacting with Logan and Mason. I was never fully on board the romance, though. It felt a little icky to me since Nate had previously been with Quincy’s sister.

Romancing Mister Bridgerton (Bridgertons #4) by Julia Quinn. Read 21-24. 4 Stars. 

I have really been enjoying this series so much more than I ever expected to and I think this book has become my new favorite so far. Collin has been one of my favorite characters in the last couple of books – he always has the best lines. His banter with Penelope (and so many others) definitely did not disappoint. Since I watched the show before I started the books, I already knew who Lady Whistledown was, so that reveal felt a little drawn out to me, but I didn’t mind it too much. I loved the relationship between Penelope and Collin and I had a lot of fun reading this one.

Wrong For Me by Meagan Brandy. Read February 24-26. 2 Stars. 

After reading a couple Tijan books recently, I was kind of in the mood to continue with that type of crazy, angsty read and I came upon this while browsing KU. This book was ridiculous. Like every single crazy thing that happened was more ridiculous than the thing before it. I honestly don’t know why I kept reading it, but I did and that’s why it’s getting 2 stars instead of 1. It’s definitely not one I would ever recommend to anyone, though.

Enjoy the View (Moose Springs, Alaska #3) by Sarah Morgenthaler. I’m a little concerned that this series might be a one hit wonder for me. I loved the first book in this series, but I couldn’t get into the second book despite trying it several times and I couldn’t get into this one either. I’m hoping it’s just my mood and I will try this again sometime. 

*****DNF*****

An Unexpected Love Story by Ellie Hall. DNF @ 10%. I was browsing Kindle Unlimited and thought this could be cute, but two chapters in and it was way too sappy for me.

55087927. sy475

If It’s Perfect by Summer Dowell. DNF @ 26%. I just wasn’t very impressed with this. I didn’t really like the characters or the writing. It was around the time the main character called someone a “scoundrel” that it really lost me.

  1. I feel like I need a “It’s my most favorite post of the month” song for this. 😉

    Nate – AGREE
    Romancing Mister Bridgerton – I can’t wait to get to it! I’m almost done with book 2. Onto book 3!
    Wrong For Me – Dude, I would have buddy read this with you just to hear your reactions. I have only really enjoyed one of her books, Fake It Til You Break It. I think hers are a little too over the top.
    The Insiders – Looking forward to this review!
    Amy Harmon’s book – Oh gosh! I didn’t realize it releases so soon! I need to get to that one!

    • Lol I definitely need a post theme song!
      I’m glad we agree on Nate! Though a little sad that means it could have been better for both of us. I’m so happy that you’re enjoying the Bridgertons books! Book 3 has been the only one I haven’t rated 4 stars so far, but it was still enjoyable. I look forward to hearing what you think of that one. Lol I had a LOT of thoughts while reading Wrong For Me lol. I did enjoy Fake it Til You Break It, even though it was a little crazy, too, and that’s been the only one of her books that have worked for me. I read the first Brayshaw book and couldn’t make myself read the second. And there was one other one I tried and DNF-ed. This one was definitely ridiculous! I am really excited for you to read Amy Harmon’s book. I was a little hesitant about it, but I think it’s definitely one of the best ones she’s written.
