Hi guys! Welcome to another edition of the mutiny.
What’s the mutiny you ask? Well, I have always said that I wasn’t going to become a review blog and yet, I’ve had this itch in the back of my head… so here we are. I’m waging a mutiny against myself and I’m going to do some mini reviews + feature upcoming reads I’m excited about.
For this specific edition, I’m going to share some my favorite reads from June, so settle in!
Vow of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson — 5 ★ — I don’t want to spoil any part of this book, so all I will say is that it’s a roller coaster and one hell of an ending.
Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James — 5 ★ — I’ve been a fan of this series from the beginning, but this one has been my favorite. I love love loved the annoyance to love plot line coupled with the BFF’s little sister. Plus, there was so much UST and I was absolutely here for it.
Some Like it Scandalous by Mara Rodale — 5 ★ — This entire book was a delight. I loved these characters and their banter and exasperation at the situation they were forced into. One of my favorite parts was how Daisy and Theo constantly talked about how they could jilt the other at the altar. Added bonus was the thread of plot about Daisy making cosmetics and women bucking societal rules to support her and do what they want for themselves.
The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez — 4.5★ — I requested this one on a whim and ended up loving it. The characters were sarcastic and fantastic. I loved the very real talk of periods and fibroids and how it didn’t even faze Josh. TFZ was fun and heartbreaking and I even though I was mildly annoyed by the constant push and pull, I can’t wait to see the next book.
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams — 5 ★ — Bromance was in my upcoming excitement section in last month’s Mutiny and when I got this gorgeous thing in my greedy hands, I couldn’t help but devour it. I loved everything about this story and I want to be very vague because it’s not out for a while. I will say that it’s made my top 10 books of the year list.
Heartwood Box by Ann Aguirre — Ann writing “dark, romantic YA suspense novel with an SF edge”? Count. Me. In.
What about you? Have you read any of these books or do you want to?
