Mini Reviews The Tommyknockers, The Belles, Voyeur & All the Stars and Teeth

The Tommyknockers

The Tommyknockers by Stephen King

*** (3 stars)

I always go into Kings books with no expectations and I also go in pretty much blind. I didn’t know what this book was about when I first started reading it. So when something was revealed I was a little shocked at first because I was not expecting this book to be about what it was about. I was actually really into this book for the majority of the time I was reading it. There was way to many characters to keep up with and some of them were called by multiple names and there were some instances where more than one character had the same name so it was all a little confusing. Like I said I was really enjoying the story while I was reading it. I was hoping that some things would get elaborated on but unfortunately that never happened and I wasn’t the biggest fan of how things ended. I’ve said it a million times before but King is amazing at writing the build up but not great at writing endings.

The Belles

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

***.5 (3.5 stars)

I buddy read this book with Erin. We read 10 chapters a week and each week I found myself not having a whole lot to say. I was liking it but not a whole lot was happening. For me personally there was way to much time spent on the beauty treatments and describing how they were done or what they used etc. and that is why I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I was hoping. I was seriously thinking I wasn’t going to continue on with the series but the last 10 chapters got me. Things really started to pick up and things started happening and that’s when I got more into it. I don’t like that I had to read like 75% of the book before I really started enjoying it but I am looking forward to reading the next book and hope it’s even better than this one.

Voyeur

Voyeur by Fiona Cole

**.5 (2.5 stars)

This was The Swoon Sisters Book Club pick for April and I wasn’t into it as much as I hoped. This is a student teacher romance but the student is of age. It’s definitely a steamy read and it deals with some heavy topics which I wasn’t expecting going in. I was just kind of bored while reading it. I mean I liked it but the romance didn’t hook me like romance usually hooks me. I can see myself continuing on with this series despite not enjoying this book as much as I would have liked to.

All the Stars and Teeth

All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace

**** (4 stars)

I really enjoyed this book. It was a little slow going at first but once things started happening things moved along at a steady pace. I enjoyed all the different types of magic and I felt the world building was great. I listened to the audiobook while reading the book and I have to point out that I didn’t like how the narrator gave both of the male leads raspy voices it was so annoying to listen to but beyond that I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read book 2.
