Feb. ’24 Book Review

Jumping right into February’s books…

The Bodyguard: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A good book, but i personally just didn’t see the connection. The spark. I feel like the main character came off as way too complainy and not even the slightest bit cute? Which made it really hard for me to visualize a cute couple. Overall—I really liked the story line. It was the characters and how they were written that just didn’t do it for me. This is between 3.5 and 4 star read for me! 3.5 for characters and a 4 for the plot/story line. A light romantic read that’s also no where near hot and heavy. 

The American Roommate Experiment: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely loved the first book to this sequel. So I had to read this one! I love the writer was able to incorporate cultural differences and even get me to play with accents in my head. It definitely added another level of intimacy to the book! Only reason I’m not giving it a solid 5 stars is because I did think the book was just a little *too* long. Towards the end I thought it dragged out just a tad, and we could’ve gotten to the good stuff faster. Such a cute read though!

Remarkably Bright Creatures: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was different than anything I’ve ever read. It has such good reviews though, I knew I needed to see what the hype was about. Not a thriller, not a love story, just…a story. About multiple people and their journeys. And surprisingly? It wasn’t a snooze fest! A unique book that incorporates people along with animals and how timing is everything. And that animals are smarter than we think (which I truly believe, so this book just gave me more confidence)! Definitely add to your “want to read” list next time you need a break in between romance books.

The Lifeguards: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I started reading this book without reading the description. So when I started, I totally thought this book was a love story! And then I realized it was a thriller/murder mystery. Which I love! It was a good story, however…it’s getting 3.5 stars for a few reasons. What happened with the nanny? What happened in the bunker? What happened to Roma? Those are 3 big issues that I feel like didn’t get resolved—we got no answers too. Which all of those are basically the whole story. We were kinda left open ended and to our own imagination if you will? Which I’ve read other books that are like this, and for some that works. But for this book, there was just too many unanswered questions. At the same time, I found myself not being able to put the book down. If you read this one, you’ll have to let me know what you think!

If you read my January book review which you can read HERE, you might be a little confused. I don’t think I read any of the books I said I was going to, ha! But here’s why. Have you heard of the app Libby? It’s an app that allows you to check out books from your local library through your kindle, and it’s free. I signed up recently, got a library card and entered a whole new world of reading! Books I’ve had on my list for AGES were available for me to check out, so that’s what I did. It’s free, and I’m just going in the order the books are becoming available. I currently have holds (aka I’m in line) for 10 books and then in the meantime, I’ll read other books I’ve already bought. It’s saving me a whole lot of money and also having me read a lot quicker! If you haven’t heard of it, you should definitely check it out!
