Mini Reviews: Throne of Glass, Desperation, Just Last Night, For the Love of the Viscount, Forever Changed and Promise Me Forever

Hello bookworms!!

If you didn’t know already I attempted and succeeded in reading 28 books in 28 days in February and to help me with that I read a lot of short books and I came to realize that I didn’t have a whole lot to say about most of them so I thought I would bring back the mini reviews for the books I read in February to help me get through these reviews quicker plus I feel like I am going to be saying a lot of the same things for a lot of these. Anyways lets get into the last 7 books I read in February.

throne of glass

I am buddy reading this entire series with Destiny this year. We started with The Assassin’s Blade which was the Novella bind up and in February we read the first official book in the series. I thought this was a great start to the series. It picks up a year after the ending of the final novella in The Assassin’s Blade which is why I feel like it was a good idea to read the novellas first because you get an idea of who Celaena is and what she does. Celaena is a very flawed character. She’s full of herself, she doesn’t think through things before jumping in head first and she she’s wishy washy. However, her being so flawed is a part of her charm. Of course she has good qualities as well which makes her a well rounded relatable character.

There is a bit of a love triangle in this book which after reading The Assassin’s Blade I didn’t think I would be able to get behind another romance but in this book I was definitely team Chaol from the beginning. Dorian is a great guy but to me they are better off as friends.

There’s a tournament in this book and I loved seeing all the different challenges that the competitors had to go through but at the same time I felt like it was a bit slow going and not a lot was happening. I guess with how much this series is beloved over the years I have built up some expectations and I was expecting it to be more action packed I guess.

Overall like I said this was a good start to the series and I am reading the entire series with Destiny this year. We are already almost finished with Heir of Fire which is the 3rd book.

My Rating: 4 stars


This was the #KeeperofKing readalong book for February and it ended up just being an ok book for me. Honestly at this point I can’t even remember my thoughts on it because it has been a while since I read it and because for me it just wasn’t memorable. I was invested in it enough to finish it because I wanted to know what was actually going on but I didn’t care about any of the characters really.

My Rating: 3 stars

Just Last Night

This was the February pick for the Lost in Romance Book Club which I cohost with Michelle. Looking at the cover of this I went in fully expecting like a cutesy romcom and that is definitely not what I got. This book is definitely on the heartbreaking side but there was some humor thrown in as well. I was just never fully emotionally connected to the story or any of the characters but the author had me sucked into the story. This was my first book by this author and after reading this one I would love to read some of her other books.

My Rating: 3.5 stars

For the Love of the Viscount

This was a short quick and easy read that I thought was pretty funny at times. I kind of liked the romance but I was never fully on board with it. I guess I just really didn’t see the chemistry. The one thing that bugged me so much was how Simon continuously told Elise he could never marry her because of her status in society which fine whatever but literally everyone told him he could be with whoever he wanted to be with but yet it took his mom saying pretty much the exact same things to him in the end for him to have a lightbulb moment. Also his freaking dad married his mom and she had the same status as Elise did. It was all just very frustrating.

My Rating: 3.5 stars

Forever Changed

This book had a lot packed into it. You have a marriage on the brink of disaster. The main character finds out she has breast cancer. There’s cheating plus so much more that I can’t remember at the moment. Ariana excepts everything very calmly which I found pretty unbelievable. I’m sorry if you find out you have cancer and your marriage is already on the rocks only to find out your husband is cheating on you you don’t just walk away all calmly. There is an actual romance in here as well but it was very rushed. I mean Blaine couldn’t stop thinking of her after seeing the back of her head and fell in love with her after the second time he met her. I mean there was a lot wrong with this book but the overall story was pretty good it just needed to be a little more fleshed out.

My Rating: 3.5 stars

Promise Me Forever

This book definitely give Me Before You vibes but only in the sense that it’s a caretaker/patient romance. Joy is the Therapist and Sloan is the patient. Sloan is of course angry and does everything he can to make everyone quit. I loved Joy and how she didn’t baby him and how she gave just as good as he did. For example he threw is breakfast in her lap in the very beginning but she didn’t yell at him or anything. She continued to be her joyful shelf but when she got up to go clean up she dumped coffee in his lap. Don’t worry it wasn’t hot. No that wasn’t the most professional thing for her to do but he needed some tough love. Other than that I don’t really have anything else to say about it. I liked it but it wasn’t a new favorite.

My Rating: 3.5 stars

  1. I’ve been really tempted to give Sarah J. Maas’ books a go. Uncertain as to whether they’re my cup of tea, but I suppose I’ll have to just give them a whirl and see. Would love to as she seems quite regular in how often she puts out books.

  2. They might be mini reviews, but you said a lot, Misty. It seems like they were all okay reads for you. I keep saying I am going to try a Mhairi McFarlane book, so I’m glad this one has you wanting to read more.
