Dream subject but lacking a tiny bit of depth

Treble Maker (Perfect Harmony, #1)Treble Maker by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Holds hand up and admits to being a Gleek and a huge fan of a capella so this was mostly a dream read for me.

It’s not a full five stars though because it just didn’t have the full depth I’ve come to expect from Annabeth Albert and at times the characters acted younger than they were supposed to be.

Still, it’s probably one of the dirtiest and sexiest outside of her Off Base series and I liked the contrast between Cody’s slightly older and more cynical character and Lucas’ religiously naive and idealistic one.

The struggles between Lucas’ wants and his fears was well done and I was glad this didn’t have an unrealistic outcome of them winning the contest against the odds.

Stunning cover too.

Back closer to form for the third in the series

Wild Star (Under the Stars, #3)Wild Star by Raleigh Ruebins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5*

These two were a more sympathetic pairing than in the second book and I found myself enjoying it more although Grey was also a bit of an idiot at times.

Adam though, I loved Adam, the reluctant one in the band, the one who’d only been a part of it because of his friendship with Chandler and the free spirit.

I liked how he’d settled down somewhere obscure and found himself at home for the first time and how he’d been happy with his non famous life when he met Grey.

Grey was a bit of a martyr at times, although I did like his mum and the relationship he had with her. I also liked that she wasn’t at all judgemental when he finally told her he was bisexual and with Adam and it was super cute when she got her own boyfriend.

Now I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with Chandler.
