Recommend It? Super Mini Reviews (9)

I got this idea from Danielle at Love at First Page. I read a lot of books that I don't review so I thought I would give a super short review of some books and let you know whether I recommend them or not.

The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis.  Loved this! Maggie is sarcastic and snarky and entirely believable as a teen who has recently gone blind.  She's pushed all of her friends away and basically feels sorry for herself.  I could totally see that happening.  And Ben, the 10 year old boy with the biggest heart…I absolutely fell in love with him. You have to suspend your disbelief when it comes to how Maggie can see Ben, but if you do that, you will fall in love with this book.  Highly recommend!
The Heir by Kiera Cass.  Fun and entertaining. I actually really liked Eadlyn.  Yeah, she's spoiled and keeps people at a distance, but that's sort of the whole point.  She thinks she knows how she's going to run the country, but she has a lot to learn and the selection process forces her to let her guard down.  I enjoyed reading about her growth.  I'm also surprised that there are multiple guys that appear to truly be in the running. To be honest, I can't tell who will win.  I will definitely continue with the series.  Recommend!

  1. Sounds like two great reads. Thanks for sharing these!

  2. The One Thing reminds me a little like Finding Audrey - not sure if the comparison is valid but I think I will like this book so I plan on reading it! And i'll get to The Heir at some point but i'm not sure I'm going to like that one hah

  3. I loved Maggie's sarcastic voice too! It was definitely my favorite part of the book. I wasn't sold on the "supernatural" aspect of the book and I felt like it got to be a bit too preachy, but overall it was a good story!

    Great minis!

  4. I agree completely about The Heir, I think the fact that she is spoiled and starts to change makes her a bit more realistic of a character, I have my theories on who she might pick :)
