Review Takedown #1

I know I haven't personally been keeping up with written reviews, but one my personal goals for my YouTube channel is to review more books. I do plan to write reviews and will always write reviews because I feel a strong passion for what I write, but I put so much effort and love into my reviews it can sometimes take up to two hours to write because I want to make sure what I'm saying is true and matches my feelings completely. This new series I'm starting is just a brief way to review books with my verbal ramblings instead of my written ones! I do plan on posting reviews for this books at some point in the future it just may take a while for them to get written!

 

In my Review Takedowns I hope to review three books, but I will review four if I have read a novella or short story that I have thoughts on and think is worth mentioning or discussing. In my first Review Takedown video I review three books and a novella. My first books of January!

Books Mentioned:

The Benson by Karina Halle  
☆☆☆1/2
I really enjoyed this novella and it's free for download here. I'm just a big fan of Halle's books and love the Experiment in Terror series, but you don't have to have read the first two books to read The Benson!

Thug Notes by Sparky Sweets 
☆☆☆☆
I'm a huge fan of the Thug Notes series on YouTube and I was so excited to get approved by Netgalley. I highly recommend it if you are in college and struggle with reading classics. It's a lot of fun!

Violet Dawn by Lynn Rush
☆☆☆
This is the second book in the Violet Night trilogy and I'm not the biggest fan of this trilogy so far, but I will say this book has a very strong and enjoyable middle. It was the selling factor for a three star rating.

Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
☆☆☆☆☆
I have been a long time Outlander fan since discovery the books in November my junior year and I have been slowly going through the books (or quickly since this books are huge). I absolutely adore the fourth installment in this series and I'm not sure whether I love it more or less than Voyager because the Voyager is amazing, but the ending of the matches up to the feels at felt for the beginning. I just really need to start reviewing these books on my blog, but I have so many feels and I just... articulation of feels may make me seem like the madwoman featured in this video.
