April Wrap-Up/May TBR

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.

April Wrap-Up:

under a painted sky 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 The Cage – Megan Shepherd. 4/5 stars. Review. I really enjoy Megan Shepherd’s books and this was no exception.

city of savages City of Savages – Lee Kelly. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. It was good but there were places where it lost me for a bit before bringing me back.

rise of nine The Rise of Nine – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. Reading my way through the main series and all the side stories. They’re decent but not mind-blowing.

magonia 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.

summer i found you 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.

fall of five The Fall of Five – Pittacus Lore. 3.5/5 stars. I would say this one is my favourite of the series so far. I found out it less predictable than the others.

orphan queen 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 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.

six's legacy Six’s Legacy – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. One of the shorts from the collection. Easy read.

things we know by heart 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.

revenge of seven The Revenge of Seven – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. All caught up on the main series!

nine's legacy Nine’s Legacy – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. Another easy read short story.

afterlight In the Afterlight – Alexandra Bracken. 4/5 stars. I find it hard to choose a favourite of this series. They’re all so good.

written in the stars 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.

cemetery boys The Cemetery Boys – Heather Brewer. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. There was a lot of interesting stuff going on, and a lot of disturbing stuff.

fallen legacies Fallen Legacies – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. Another easy read of a short story.

cost of things The Cost of All Things – Maggie Lehrman. 3.5/5 stars. Review. Very good concept but the ending did feel a little rushed.

lost files 4 The Search for Sam – Pittacus Lore. 3.5/5 stars. It’s interesting to see how these shorts slide in with the main novels.

start of me and you 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 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 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.

last days Last Days of the Lorien – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. Another short story read.

miss mayhem Miss Mayhem – Rachel Hawkins. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. Didn’t enjoy as much as the first but still so much fun to read.

forgotten ones The Forgotten Ones – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. There’s a lot of short stories in this collection.

every last promise Every Last Promise – Kristin Halbrook. 3/5 stars. Review. An important topic but not a lot of character development.

made you up 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.

five's legacy Five’s Legacy – Pittacus Lore. 3.5/5 stars. I find Five to be one of the most interesting characters in the series.

queen of bright The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things – Ann Aguire. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. Very cute but with an underlying darkness.

life unaware 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.
