Another month, more books read, more to read. If this was anything but reading, it would feel like a job but instead, I love every second of it.
Under A Painted Sky- Stacey Lee. 5/5 stars! Review. I loved this book so much. Great characters, great setting, and a lot of history.
The Cage – Megan Shepherd. 4/5 stars. Review. I really enjoy Megan Shepherd’s books and this was no exception.
Magonia – Maria Dahvana Headley. 3.5/5 stars. Review. This was very different from anything else I’d read. I really enjoyed the main character and the whole created.
The Summer I Found You – Jolene Perry. 3 stars. Review. I wish there had been more depth to the side characters but the contrast between the two main characters was interesting.
The Orphan Queen – Jodi Meadows. 4/5 stars. Review. I really liked the world created in this book and Wil could be strong and vulnerable.
None of the Above – I.W. Gregorio. 4.5/5 stars. Review. Such an important book for people to read. It has a lot of medical facts in it but without the feeling of reading a textbook and the main character is so likeable.
Things We Know my Heart – Jessi Kirby. 3/5 stars. Review. The romance happened really fast and for the wrong reasons but the main characters were still perfect for each other.
Written in the Stars – Aisha Saeed. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved how much culture was explored in this book and that the author created villains without vilifying the whole culture.
The Cost of All Things – Maggie Lehrman. 3.5/5 stars. Review. Very good concept but the ending did feel a little rushed.
The Start of Me and You – Emory Lord. 4.5/5 stars. Review. This book was really cute with great friendships and a slow burn romance. Can I have a Max? Please?
Everything That Makes You – Moriah McStay. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I really liked this concept. It was like reading two separate stories with two girls who happened to have the same name.
Dream A Little Dream – Kirsten Gier. 3.5/5 stars. At first I was a little worried it would remind me too much of The Raven Boys but the more I read, the more I found myself really enjoying it. It was twisty, had interesting mythology, and some really great characters.
Every Last Promise – Kristin Halbrook. 3/5 stars. Review. An important topic but not a lot of character development.
Made You Up – Francesca Zappia. 4.5/5 stars. Review. A very eye-opening read into the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic. A narrator that was easy to love but always had you second guessing what she saw or heard.
Life Unware – Cole Gibsen. 4/5 stars. Review. This is a book a lot of people should read. Not only does it deal with bullying but also about how technology makes it so much easier for it to happen and maybe makes you think twice about sending a bullying text or e-mail or status update because once it’s out there, delete doesn’t mean it’s gone.
