Ash Princess by Laura  Sebastian

3.5 stars

S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett

2.5 stars

Intriguing premise, with a plot that is fine at first, but eventually becomes unbelievable, then ludicrous. A slight but entertaining book ruined by heroine's distraction by a blue-eyed charmer (view spoiler)

So. Much. Fun.

Review to come of the audio edition. I'll have to look up the voice

3.5 stars

The good news: THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN was not a fluke.

The not-so-great news: this book's plot and characters are less compelling, and its flaws much more obvious.

Review to come of the audio edition.
