I enjoyed some aspects of the book very much but others not at all. Loved the strong female heroine, the luscious sex scenes and the depth of the world created. But I found the narrative hard to follow, overly complicated and too callous and politica ...more

This sequel was definitely not as strong as Matched, which I loved. It was a 3.5 for me. Decently written - the dual narrators pov was ok; not great, but ok - and I enjoyed the relative minimalism. However, the pace was a bit too slow and I wanted th ...more

Had been meaning to read this for a while, and was spurred to grab it at the library by the many comparisons to it in the goodreads reviews of Matched. I have to say, I don't think the accusations of something close to plagiarism are warranted at all ...more

I absolutely loved this book. Dystopian future books with fleshed-out characters are pretty much my favorite genre, and add a little bit of a love story and I'm hooked. I had heard nothing about the book, just grabbed it off my reading list, and just ...more

I needed to bring a hardcopy book to the lakehouse and this one had made its way to my house somehow - no idea where it came from. It turned out to be a beach type read, which was really perfect for the occasion - but man, was it fluffy. I quite enjo ...more

This book only gets a 3 because it's fairly well plotted and moves swiftly. I don't know why Barr keeps getting darker with every book - the last Anna Pigeon books certainly went there too. I figured out the twist about halfway through, which I both ...more

Fatal Error by J.A. Jance

This one is a high 2. The plot was ridiculous and completely unbelievable, and Jance's habit of goving full life stories for even the most minor of characters got really annoying. The only reason I didn't give up on the book is that I'm invested in t ...more

I was about halfway through this book before I realized I'd read this one before. That tells you everything you need or know about how memorable it is. I enjoy Jance's books for sheer mindless bubblegum, and it fits the bill.

This book was a bit too formulaic for me. Normally I love connelly's stuff but this one was just meh.
