Books I Didn't Blog About

It's that time again when I want to do a clean sweep of the books I read but have yet to review. I will hopefully be in the process of moving when this post goes up and instead of dragging my notes about these books with me to my very first house I wanted a clean slate. Therefore, I decided to compile some super short mini reviews into a list like I did before at the beginning of the year when I wanted a fresh start in 2015. Without further ado, here are the books I read so far in 2015 that I had yet to write reviews for. They are organized by their star ratings.

4.5 Stars

The Eye of Zoltar (#3) by Jasper Fforde
This was a very strong third book in a four book series. It was hilarious, fun, exciting, had interesting new characters, and I loved every second of it. It even had a lot of good surprises and twists. I can't wait for the last book to come out!

4 Stars

The Song of the Quarkbeast (#2) by Jasper Fforde
This may be my least favorite book in this series, but I obviously still enjoyed it a great deal since I am giving it four stars. It was still silly and fun, and I still loved the main character, Jennifer Strange. I guess the story line just wasn't as interesting to me as the first one was.


Landline by Rainbow Rowell
This was an adorable book full of emotions and hope. It had a slow start for me but did pick up. It was unique and had strong characters. I would recommend it. 


3.5 Stars

Zombies Vs. Unicorns by Many Authors
Some of the stories in this anthology I loved and some I really didn't like, but mostly I enjoyed these stories of zombies and unicorns. Some were dark and some were funny, but all were interesting.


3 Stars

Miss Mayhem (#2) by Rachel Hawkins 
I hate to report it but this sequel to Rebel Belle was kind of a disappointment. It lost some of its charm from the first novel, but I did still like it. I wanted more butt-kicking scenes. Maybe in the next book.

2.5 Stars

H2O (#1) by Virginia Bergin
I had a hard time rating this book. I loved the premise, the survival aspects of the book, and the killer rain, but I didn't love the characters. The main character, Ruby, seems to be really dumb and doesn't really grow all that much. She was frustrating.

  1. I enjoyed Landline as well! I tried to listen to the first book in the Dragonslayer series but the narrator was not working for me, so my plan is to just read it! I do look forward to starting it :)

    1. It is a super fun series! I think it would be a little hard to follow on audiobook anyway because it is a little zany!

  2. I have never read these books at all but AGH LANDLINE AND MISS MAYHEM. I want to read them both. Glad you loved Landline, but I'm sorry to hear Miss Mayhem was a disappointment :(
