Anne’s House of Dreams (Anne of Green Gables #5) by LM Montgomery: Okay, WOOF. I have absolutely loved this series so far (the first book is pure magic) and i’m not sure i’ll actually finish it… I was so excited for Anne and Gilbert to get married, and thought this book would feature a more grown-up version of Anne. Well…it does. But it’s so horribly boring. Gilbert is barely featured in this book and the “secondary” characters are in the spotlight. I’ve heard the next two books in the series are focused primarily on Anne’s children (and some children in another family) and I could not be less interested in those storylines. Unfortunately, I think my time with the Green Gables crew has come to an end.
Bombshell (Hell’s Belles #1) by Sarah MacLean: I’ve heard from many historical romance fans that Sarah MacLean books are top tier. Bombshell was really good – Sesily and her girl gang were fun characters (Adelaide and Imogen in particular!) and Caleb was a solid male lead. This dragged a little bit for me towards the end (some plot points felt a bit repetitive at times) but i’ll still give book two a shot when it comes out later this year. Thank you Avon for the finished copy!
