Do It In 140: Tweet-Short Reviews (11)

Posted 3 February, 2015 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | Review, Tweet-Short Reviews | 13 Comments

I read fast. Like, a-book-a-day-fast. Because of that superpower, I’m always behind on my reviews. But, taking inspiration from Twitter, I realized I can talk about a lot of books in just 140 characters. (Of course, I’m not the first or only one to do this: check out the awesome Karen @ For What It’s Worth’s Short and Tweet reviews.)


Countess Conspiracy (Brothers Sinister #3) by Courtney Milan
(Historical Romance, 250 pages, December 2013, Courtney Milan)

Violet’s a scientist in a time when women weren’t scientists. (Grr.) Enjoy how she flouts conventions, although she hides it. Woot to Sebastian! *fans self*

Say Yes to the Marquess (Castles Ever After #2) by Tessa Dare
(Historical Romance, 384 pages, December 2014, Avon)

Adore Tessa Dare. Adored this story. Loved how smart Clio was, how she knew what she wanted despite pressures otherwise. Great secondary characters, too.

To Love a Highlander (Scandalous Scots #1) by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
(Historical Romance, 400 pages, April 2014, Forever)

Love-hate relationship w/ Medieval Scottish Highlands settings…kind of depressing, w/ all the death, killing; kind of not b/c of hot men in kilts. It’s a conundrum. Good story, though!

To Scotland With Love (Kilts and Quilts #1) by Patience Griffin
(Contemporary Romance, 384 pages, June 2014, Signet)

Just because you’re an investigative reporter trying to get back into the game, doesn’t mean you have to be two-faced. Loved the setting, though.



Devil Takes a Bride (The Cabot Sisters #2) by Julia London
(Historical Romance, 368 pages, January 2015, Harlequin)

Too much focus on Lord Jeffery’s OCD and “sexual deviance” (aka lite BDSM), not enough on the romance. Didn’t love Grace, either. On to the third Cabot sister!

  1. TESSA DARE!!!! She can do no wrong for me Mary, I just love her books so much:) They never fail to make me smile. Courtney Milan is pretty fantastic too, though I still need to read The Countess Conspiracy!

  2. I want to read a Tessa Dare novel and I have the first book in the Castles Ever After series. Only drawback is that it’s paperback and not on my kindle so I’d have to wear my glasses. Boo!! I don’t think I’d care for To Scotland With Love. Not a fan of a two-faced heroine. All the others sound like something I’d read! Great short and tweets! Btw, I wish I had your superpower. I’m always behind in my review books! 🙂
