Graffiti Moon - Cath Crowley

young adult contemporary
the second ya book I recently reading that involves graffitis
Lucy just needs to find out who Shadow is
Shadow, who is leaving graffitis that touch her deeply
but what if Shade is someone Lucy didn't expect?
I was very excited to read "Graffiti Moon"
I loved the synopsis and the cover
but I unfortunately struggled with the story
it's gritty and something about the mood of the story
wasn't perfect for me
the life of some of the teens seemed pretty hopeless
and that might be realistic
but I personally prefer more light-hearted stories
I also struggled a bit with the male main character
at times he didn't seem to have that much depth
and the writing style also wasn't perfect for me
if you are looking for an intense YA novel
then "Graffiti Moon" could be great for you
for me it wasn't what I was looking for.

Brown-eyed girl - Lisa Kleypas

#4 in the Travises series
it has been years since the third book in the series was published
now the final book is finally out (published 2015)
I was pretty excited to read this last book in the series
to get the missing story
but have to say
that I didn't enjoy the book as much as I was hoping for
I struggled with the female main character from the get go
she constantly doubted her own appeal
and that began to annoy me pretty quickly
I also didn't enjoy the story that was going on in the background
and I didn't feel a lot when reading about the romance
so no, this was not the great ending to the series 
I was hoping for.

Happy Reading!

Get Inked, Clipped Wings + Inked Armor - Helena Hunting

a novella
part of the Pucked series
I love this sports romance series
it's loud, sexy, over the top crazy and so much fun
this book fits perfectly to the rest of the series
we get something new by every character in the series
little bits about what is going on with them
and once again I had to lough out loud constantly
this series has been pretty much perfect for me so far
some readers won't enjoy the humour as much as I do
but for me it just works
I'm already excited to read the next book in the series. 

books #1 and #2 in the Clipped Wings series
after reading and enjoying the Pucked series by Hunting
I wanted to try more books by her
so I bought two books in one of her other series
and overall I enjoyed both books
but definitely not as much as the Pucked series
Clipped Wings + Inked Armor
are messier and more dramatic than the Pucked books
at times too dramatic for my taste
there is some humour
but not as much compared to the Pucked books
I don't think that I will be reading more books in the series
I prefer the more light-hearted stories by Helena Hunting.

Happy Reading!
