Mini Reviews: Cell and Hook, Line, & Sinker

Hello bookworms!!

I am almost caught up on reviews finally after several months of trying to get caught up. I only have one more review post after this one and then I will be up to the books I have read in November, and I can start posting them close to when I finish them. I’m only sharing 2 book reviews in this post today because the other 4 books I have left to review are all part of the same series and I plan to do a series review for them. Enough blabbing let’s get to the reviews.

Cell

This is one of King’s shorter books although it still comes in at over 500 pages. As I’m sure y’all know by now if you’ve been following my blog for a while I participate in the #KeeperofKing readalong on Instagram with several other people. We read at least 1 King book a month and I always go into his books blind. Also, his books tend to be hit or miss for me.

Luckily this was one of the ones I ended up really enjoying. You have to suspend disbelief (is that the correct saying) but I loved how it made you think about how much we depend on our cell phones. We are immediately thrown into the action from the get-go, and it never stops. There are twists thrown in I wasn’t expecting as well.

I didn’t like how it ended but not because it was a bad ending because it wasn’t. I think it was a good ending, but I personally hate when we are left with open endings. I don’t want to have to imagine all the different scenarios that could have been the outcome. I want to be told exactly what happens. I also feel like we need a sequel because things were exactly explained to my liking. I still didn’t really understand what caused this to happen after it ended. If King wrote a follow up book for this one, I would totally read it.

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Hook, Line, and Sinker

This is the second book in the Bellinger Sisters series. I wasn’t able to read the first book before reading this, but I didn’t feel like I was missing anything by not reading the first book first. I loved this book so much. It literally gave me everything I could possibly want in a romance.

I loved the text messages included in the story. Their interactions were cute and adorable and funny. I loved that we get a friends to lovers romance and it progressed naturally from them being friends to being lovers. There is a lack of communication that I don’t typically like but I loved everything else about this book that I couldn’t be bothered with how much that annoyed me.

We get heart, humor and steaminess and I definitely need to go back and read the first book in the series. I’ve heard mixed opinions on that one, but I have high hopes for it.

My Rating: 5 stars
