Three Chapter Test

I’ve just thought up a good idea!

You see, I’ve got lots of books in my kindle. (Yeah, I think ebooks are worse on my wallet than print books could ever be.) Plus there’s The Romance Reviews, and Net Galley, and etc etc. Anyway, the thing is, I’ve got a lot of books to read and so little time!! So, I’m now going to subject the books I read to the Three Chapter Test!

At the end of three chapters, I’m going to list down the pluses and minuses, and then decide whether I’m going to read onward or not. That way, I don’t need to waste my time if it’s not a book that didn’t capture me in the first three chapters. Good idea?

First post coming up soon!

Review: Love Like the Movies by Victoria Van Tiem

garden

It’s rare to read a book that touches you on so many levels. LOVE LIKE THE MOVIES is more than a rom-com; it’s about love, life and choices–the ones we make and the ones that are forced upon us. And courage, of course.

Kensington Shaw finally has the boyfriend that’s guaranteed to win her battles with her family. Bradley Connors is the one…or so she thinks until her ex, Shane Bennett, comes back into her life. To secure her job, she has to make nice with Shane (who’s hiring her agency), and if it includes living–acting out–movie moments with him, then she’s game. But what happens when these scenes reach inside to rediscover the girl who’s been hiding beneath all these years? Continue reading

Review: Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen

garden

Cindi Madsen takes us on a wild, thrilling ride in CONFESSIONS OF A FORMER PUCK BUNNY, which is unexpectedly fun to read.

Lindsay is a great narrator; I love her voice and her strength, especially the way she turned her life around and made the goal of pursuing her dream. More than her though, I love Ryder, especially the way that Lindsay’s past didn’t matter to him, and that he only wants “her future”. If only more men were like him! Both characters are lovable and relatable, and I kept rooting for them all the way! Continue reading
