Short Reviews: Not a Drop to Drink, Perfect Ruin & My Soul to Take

Today I'm going to give you some short reviews of books I've read in the last couple of weeks, but never reviewed in full. This could have been because I couldn't really think of what to say about it or lack of time.

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

I know many other reviewers absolutely loved this book, but I wasn't really blown away by it. 

The romance was unnecessary in my eyes, the backstory of why the world suddenly had no water wasn't explained and I found the end a bit rushed. I did like how Lynn's character developed during the story, she became more trusting and friendlier.

Stars: ★★★

My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers #1) by Rachel Vincent

This was quite a short book. I liked the paranormal concept of this book, the soul screamers, it was original. I did not really like the romance, it seemed like the boy only liked the girl once he figured out she was like him. Except for the boy, Nash, I liked the characters and they have a lot of potential. The book introduces a mystery and I'm curious to see how it unfolds in the rest of the series. 

Stars: ★★★

Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1)
by Lauren DeStefano 

The book starts off pretty slow and the story 
gradually builds up. I did not really get the backstory of Internment and the whole thing with the edge. I did like the romance (for once), Basil and Morgan were sweet together. The book ends in quite a cliffhanger, unfortunately. I think the story has a lot of potential and I will definitely read the next book.

Stars: ★★★1/2
