Maren Partridge loves working in her family’s dream shop where she can hand-craft any dream imaginable. The shop has only one rule. Dreams cannot be given to a person without their consent. Maren has no problem with this—until her sister, Hallie, has an accident that leaves her in a coma. Maren’s certain she can cure Hallie with a few well-chosen dreams. And when no one is watching, she slips her a flying dream.

But a strange new customer from the shop has been following Maren and knows what she did. Now she’s laid the perfect trap to blackmail Maren into creating custom nightmares for a dark and terrible purpose. As Maren gets drawn further into the sinister scheme, she must make a choice: to protect her family or to protect the town from her family’s magic.

You can find this book here : Amazon / BookDepository

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 2, 5/5

Smexy Times?– non,it’s middle grade

OVERALL – 3/5 STARS

This one was okay…Was it interesting? Yes. Would I read it again? Nope. Magic realism inspired fairytale about family, hope, and dreams. It has strong Lemony Snicket vibes and I loved it. Maren was an interesting main hero, she was a completed one (so not one-dimensional) and that’s amazing. Overall a good book for any middle grader.

Come Undone: A Love Triangle by Crystal Kaswell-Review

LR0QHello, my darlings! How are you all doing? Today I want to talk about a new book by Crystal Kaswell. I’m a part of Crystal’s ARC team(still don’t know how I got in),and they send me an ARC copy for review. This time it was “Come Undone”, a love triangle story. So let’s dive right into it!

 

About the book:

Her fiance doesn’t want her anymore. Her new neighbor would do anything to have her.

From the outside, Alyssa has the perfect life. Beautiful apartment. Handsome high school sweetheart. Impending wedding.

Only her fiance doesn’t love her anymore. He disappears into work, leaving her alone with her emptiness.

Until Luke. The brooding lawyer needs a beautiful distraction. Soft lips against his chest, hard nails against his back, Alyssa groaning his name.

He doesn’t care that she belongs to someone else. He’s going to claim her anyway.

My Thoughts :

4/5 stars 

1280px-4_stars.svg (1)

It was very different than I expected. First of all, I love the book cover. The story was written in much darker tones and I don’t always like it(you need to be in the “mood to read stuff like that), but this was written so well.I enjoyed the story and how things were unfolding. Alyssa’s life and love life is worth reading.If you like not sugar-coated stories, but raw and real ones then you will love this one!

Nr9s
Disclaimer-It does talks about toxic relationship and an eating disorder.If you are triggered by things like this, better skip this one. And it has sexy times, just so you know.

I received an advanced copy of this manuscript and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

You can find this book on Amazon.
