Would You Rather Book Tag

Hi there! I was tagged by the lovely Tasha @ Head in the Clouds, Heart in the Books to do this tag! I’ve seen it around a lot, and it seems like super fun, so I was super happy when I found out I was tagged. So here we go!

Would you rather…

1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?

I enjoy trilogies, but if I had to choose ONLY either trilogy or stand alones, I have to say stand alones. I can get through 3 stand alones in the time it takes to finish a trilogy, for one, and as I have been reading a lot of trilogies these days, I’m becoming weary of them. Of course, that’s not to say I don’t like trilogies, it’s just if I had to choose only between trilogies and stand alones, I’d have to pick stand alones.

2. Read only female or male authors?

It doesn’t really matter to me. I’ve read amazing books by both genders, so I’m definitely not prejudiced to only one. 🙂

3. Shop at Barnes & Noble or Amazon?

I don’t shop at Amazon, like, at all. I have an account, but I’ve never used it. Don’t ask why, I just don’t. 🙂 So Barnes & Noble it is.

4. All books become movies or t.v. shows?

I suppose movies. There are books that would be good as a movie and not as a TV show, and there are also books that WOULD be good as a movie and a TV show. The common factor in both of these would be the movies! Not all books are good as TV shows, but all books would be good for a movie.

5. Read 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

5 books per week, definitely! ❤ Why is this being questioned?

6. Be a professional reviewer or author?

I can’t choose between the two! I love reviewing books, and it would be amazing if I could be a professional reviewer. But then I also love writing and I would love to share my work with the world. So both. 🙂

7. Only read your top 20 favourite books over and over or always read new ones that you haven’t read before?

Read new ones! I love my favorite books and it would be fine to re-read them, but I wouldn’t be happy only re-reading those favorites. Not to mention no matter how much I love to books, there’s only so many times I can re-read a book and still enjoy it like the first time. Reading new ones will broaden my reading experience and allow me to get new favorite books. ❤

8. Be a librarian or book seller?

Book seller! Librarian is cool, but I’d love to sell books to people in the hopes they enjoy them as much as I do! Then again, if I did become a book seller, I think it would defeat the purpose of being my income… I’d go broke buying too many books! 😉 I’d never be able to resist the temptation.

9. Only read your favourite genre, or every genre except your favourite?

Only read my favorite genres! (I’m adding an ‘s’ to genre ’cause I have more than one favorite genre. Deal with it.) I’m all for trying new things, but erotica is a genre I’m not even going to step close to. Not to mention I have quite the variety in my favorite genres, so I will be quite happy with reading only my favorite genres.

10. Only read physical books or eBooks

Ooh… this one’s a hard one! I’ve been reading more eBooks lately, so I guess you can say it’s more favorable… but I still like physical books! It’s just eBooks and me have come a long way (what with me being stuck to my Kobo 24/7 for the past years) and I’m quite used to it. However, I still enjoy physical books, so… tiebreaker?


So that’s it for this tag! Thanks again Tasha for tagging me, it was lots of fun! ❤ I now tag my next 10 followers (as part of my 100 followers celebration):


As always, if you weren’t tagged and want to do this tag, please do it! And if you were and don’t want to do it, feel free to opt out. It’s lots of fun though and I’d love to get to know you guys better! ❤

Have a nice day!

Frankly TWISTED by Kevin Eleven | ARC Book Review

(Tales of the 23rd Precinct #2)

To-be Published on: July 21st 2o15

Synopsis (provided by author):

Many often think that they know the characters and as well as motives behind Brooklyn’s own 23rd precinct. Well the fact of the matter is that they don’t as detectives find that scratching your head may be the key to figuring out where exactly it could have all went wrong. Moreover, this just so happens to be the dilemma of Parkside avenue’s finest as they now find themselves entangled within a twisted end at every single corner. However, what they haven’t realized is that someone amongst their own ranks has been leading them astray and is the cause of them backtracking as a result.


My Rating: 3.5 stars 3.5/5 (Pretty Good)

Book Information

Publisher: Flowered Concrete

Page Count: 175

Format: E-book (PDF)


Note: I received an ARC copy of this book from the author, which doesn’t affect opinion of the book. I was not compensated for this review. 

After enjoying Tales of the 23rd Precinct, I was interested in finding how I would enjoy this one. I’m happy to say I found Frankly TWISTED just as enjoyable as its predecessor.

Quick summary

Readers delve deeper into the world of the 23rd Precinct, and follow different detectives as they pursue the guilty. Little did they know the guilty was among them… and right under their noses.

My Review

The plot for Frankly TWISTED is a bit similar to Tales of the 23rd Precinct in theory, however in reading the whole story itself, the novel is assuredly different from the first. The same cliffhangers are there, along with different character POV that kept the novel diverse and interesting. There were several chilling, ‘dark’ moments in the novel, which were interesting and had me continuing the story as well.

The characters remained mostly the same since the previous novel, in that they were well-written and had several different layers to them that were interesting to read into throughout the novel. Each character had a distinct voice to them, and so it wasn’t hard to distinguish between the POV’s, which I appreciated. I was also able to keep better track of the characters this time, and was familiar with them as well, a plus to reading Tales of the 23rd Precinct.

As for the writing style, there were no dramatic changes in comparison to the style in Tales of the 23rd Precinct, so there’s really nothing new to say. Like the previous novel, the writing style suited the story and gave a good look into what was happening in the story in a clear and effective manner.

Overall…

If you have read Tales of the 23rd Precinct and enjoyed it, Frankly TWISTED wraps up things nicely (which is why I’m intrigued as to what could happen in the next book), and is an interesting novel. Overall, this books is a solid 3.5 stars. If you’re more of a contemporary, paranormal, dystopia and fantasy kind of person, I can’t guarantee you’ll enjoy this, but if you’re interested, there’s no harm in trying it out when it’s released.

Happy reading!
