Loved It!
Crazy Cupid Love - Amanda Heger

When I read the description of this, I really didn’t think I was going to like this book. It sounded like just another quirky romance killing Greek mythology. However, I liked Eliza right from the beginning. I soon found myself not being able to put the book down until I was done. I liked the brief chapters that were in Jake’s POV. I thought they were the perfect length and info. There was only a couple of things. when it was in Jake’s POV, it was first person but when it was Eliza, it was third  person. Also, it’s not explained up front what has to happen for the “cupids” to do their work. It makes it a little confusing as to why things that happen to her occur. It’s not until a pretty good chunk into the book when Eliza is trying to explain things to a potential client that I finally got it. I look forward to reading more from this author.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

ARC REVIEW Crazy Stupid Love by Amanda Heger

Crazy Cupid Love (Let's Get Mythical, #1) Let's Get Mythical #1, I was real excited to read this. With RT Books Review calling it "Percy Jackson for Romance Fans." I was expecting a slightly more Urban Fantasy-esk/Rom-Com rather than just a Rom-Com with Mythological tendencies. It was a nice read, the first half was a slow build up of the story, establishing characters, backstories, and setting up of the conflict. It also set up the romantic connection between Eliza and Jake.

Eliza and Jake have known eachother since they were kids but as soon as they hit puberty they became aware of each other in term of boy and girl. Eliza out of fear of rejection distanced herself from Jake and Jake not knowing what else to do let it happen. They went their separate ways until now. Eliza has always been a klutz, that wouldn't be a big deal if she wasn't a Descendant of Eros, as a cupid any minor injury she inflicts on someone causes a love charm. She gave up on being a good cupid early one especially when she failed spectacularly when trying to get her cupid license. But he father just had another major heart attack and her mother has been suspended and her brother has a conference he has to go to. That leaves Eliza to pick up the slack that means getting her provisional license and that means she needs a mentor that's where Jake comes in.

Jake has always loved Eliza, his time in the Cupid Corp gave him time away from him to get his head on straight but as soon as he got back it was like he never went away. If only she hadn't accidentally hit him with an enchantment now Eliza is confused that Jake is only acting this way because of it or if he really likes her. If falling in love with your mentor isn't troubling enough Eliza's enchantments start to backfire and pretty soon it's not just her license on the line it's her parents reputation and worse case scenario all of mythical-kind.

Overall, it had a much better finish than a start. Things started to pick up at the halfway point it has a really good climatic finish and a fun epilogue. I am curious about where she's going to go with the next book, she put in lots of fun mythological creatures to pick from.

Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians - Kevin Kwan

Pop Sugar 2019 Challenge prompts:

Book about a family

Book by an author from Asia 

Book by an author whose first and last name begin with the same letter

Book involving a wedding

 

I had high hopes for this book, but I just couldn't get into it. There were far too many names and titles thrown at me with every turn. I can't keep the people straight. And if I can't keep them straight, it's not possible to connect and feel anything for them.

I'm sad to say I'm having a hard time getting into this. There are so many characters to keep straight that I haven't connected with any yet.
