Court of Swans (The Dericott Tales #1) by Melanie Dickerson

Rating: 2 out of 5.

I could not get into this YA Historical Fiction. I didn’t like the writing style. It was too basic and didn’t flow well. I was disappointed because the description of the book really interested me. This is just my opinion, however, and others may enjoy the book.

No Offense (Little Bridge Island, #2) by Meg Cabot

Rating: 2 out of 5.

My overall feeling about this contemporary romance book is a solid “meh”. It’s not the worst I’ve read, but I won’t remember what this book is about in a week. The writing is fine, but the two characters aren’t interesting, the romance is very clunky and the side plots kind of ridiculous.

The Stormbringer (Stormbringer #1) by Isabel Cooper

Rating: 2 out of 5.

I couldn’t get into this fantasy/romance book. The story didn’t interest me. The book goes from one fight scene to another, with little story in between. The writing is clunky and stilted. There is probably an audience for this book, it just wasn’t for me.

I really enjoyed this first book in a new fantasy series. It’s a quick and easy read, and there is plenty of action, magic, fighting, fast ships and has just a hint of romance.
