Ok, Yes the topic is first impression Friday, and I realize that today is Saturday….. I’m not crazy! But I had a review scheduled yesterday so it’s first impression Friday – but on a Saturday! LOL. It’s been a while since my last first impressions post! I took a little break from it when I took a few weeks hiatus, but now I’m back! Sadly, there aren’t that many as I haven’t been reading a lot….. but my first impressions were really interesting! Here we go:
MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS – This one started off with a bang! I was immediately confused but really interested and driven to keep reading. I immediately meshed with the writing style and had really high hopes that I would love this! Which is, honestly, a strange feeling because this isn’t my favourite genre at all! But I was interested enough to read as quickly as I could! I guessed that I would rate this one 4 stars……
HOW I RATED IT – I was right! I ended up really enjoying this book! I loved the writing, I loved the suspense, and I loved how well the perspectives were written, even though not all the characters were terribly likeable people. For more in depth thoughts, see the full spoiler free review HERE
MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS – This had a really weird start – but in a good way! It starts off with a letter written by a friend, telling another friend that he’s dead. Yeah, sounds weird right? But it was written to a friend who had been away from home for years and he was being told that he needed to come home and support a mutual friend. The letter was sad but showed an interesting friend dynamic, and the person writing it was still somehow funny, given the circumstances. I guessed that I would rate this 5 stars…..
HOW I RATED IT – Meh. It didn’t quite pan out to what I was hoping for and I ended up giving it 3 stars. It started off with a snarky character that had a lot of humour, but that seemed to fizzle out pretty quickly. It was really hard not to compare this book to the Naughty Princess club series that I loved so much. That series was full of bad-assery, humour, smut, bravery, and women who told it like it is. This was a good book, don’t get me wrong, but it was so very different from what I’ve read of her before. This was a really sweet story, and more realistic than the other series. It was a great light romance! But I was hoping for more quick whit and humour. Review to come.
MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS – Do I really need to tell you my first impressions?? It’s Jay Kristoff…… my favourite author in the universe……. I knew I was going to love this! Based on my love of everything he’s ever written, I guessed that I would rate this 5 stars…..
HOW I RATED IT – Close enough – I rated it 4.5 stars. This was such a great sequel! Though I missed more of the perspective of Eve, I more than loved the perspectives of Lemon Fresh, Cricket, and Ezekiel. It ended up being far more deep and emotional than I expected! It was a really nice surprise! For my full thoughts, click HERE for the spoiler free review!
Those are my first impressions of the books i’ve read over the last few weeks. I really hope that my next instalment will be longer though. I’ve had the desire to read all the books lately so, that’s a start!!
Until next time, happy reading!
