Another month is gone already and we’re heading into summer, which will hopefully be a good time to catch up on my massively massive TBR pile. Reading on the deck and getting some sun, sipping milkshakes or wine depending on the time of day, warm nights. Bring it on!
The Heir – Kiera Cass. 4 stars. Review. This ended up being my favourite of the series so far. I liked the flip on the genders from the first one and the writing is a lot stronger.
Return to Paradise – Pittacus Lore. 3 stars. Pretty much read my way through most of the remaining novellas in the Lorien Legacies this month.
Kissing in America – Margo Rabb. 3 stars. Review. I wish it had been more road trip and less insta-love.
Invaded – Melissa Landers. 4 stars. The first was a lot more light-hearted than I expected and this one had the same feel to it while definitely upping the tension level.
Nowhere But Here – Katie McGarry. 4.5 stars. Review. Definitely a new favourite series. I loved the characters and the idea of the motorcycle club being a family.
A Little Something Different – Sandy Hall. 3.5 stars. Review coming. Very different style and it took a bit to get used to it but once I did, I enjoyed it.
The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak – Brian Katcher. 3.5 stars. Review. A lot of fun to read, over the top at times but in a good way.
Five’s Betrayal – Pittacus Lore. 3.5 stars. I actually find Five to be one of the more interesting characters in the series.
Proof of Forever – Lexa Hillyer. 4 stars. Review. It was a really cute and meaningful story that I enjoyed so much.
Until Midnight – Melissa Landers. 4 stars. So cute! Just so cute!
Becoming Jinn – Lori Goldstein. 3 stars. Review coming. Overall a decent book and interesting mythology but it was pretty slow.
The Fill-In Boyfriend – Kasie West. 3.5 stars. Review. I didn’t like this one as much as On the Fence, mostly because I had a harder time relating to the main character, but I still really liked it.
Extraordinary Means – Robyn Schneider. 4 stars. Review. I really liked the characters, the setting, and what this book said about dealing with the possibility of death and not giving up.
Crimson Bound – Rosamund Hodge. 4 stars. Review coming. I really liked the different take on the fairy tale and the main character was pretty awesome.
The Prince – Kiera Cass. 3.5 stars. I didn’t really need the confirmation that I was Team Maxxon but I liked it anyway.
The Wicked Will Rise – Danielle Paige. 3.5 stars. A lot more action than the rest book but there were times when it felt like too much for such a short book.
A Sense of the Infinite – Hilary T Smith. 3 stars. Review. The main character’s growth journey was very touching and easy to relate to.
The Guard – Kiera Cass. 2 stars. I also didn’t need confirmation to know I most definitely was not Team Aspen.
Roar and Liv – Veronica Rossi. 5 stars. Oh my heart.
Between the Notes – Sharon Huss Roat. 4 stars. Review. I found the story easy to relate to in a lot of ways and I loved all the character interactions, especially the family ones.
Love Fortunes and Other Disasters – Kimberly Karalius. 4 stars. Review. So cute and a great, vivid painting of the town the story is set in. Made me want to visit.
Brooke – Veronica Rossi. 3 stars. I wasn’t a huge fan of Brooke in the series but her story made me more sympathetic toward her.
The Shattered Mountain – Rae Carson. 3.5 stars. This was Mara’s story and it was really interesting.
Scarlet – Marissa Meyer. 4 stars. I wasn’t sold on this series with Cinder but Scarlet has convinced me. This was so good, better paced, better developed, and I loved the characters.
Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls – Lynn Weingarten. 2.5 stars. Review coming. The alternating POV format was a little confusing and felt disjointed. It made it hard to really get lost in the story.
Arise – Tara Hudson. 3 stars. It’s entertaining but it didn’t draw me in as much as I’d hope. Having a bit of a hard time getting into ghost stories. Might be the time of year(summer not spooky).
Last Year’s Mistake – Gina Ciocca. 3 stars. Review. Didn’t enjoy the character or the love story but the writing and POV format was really good.
P.S. I Still Love You – Jenny Han. 4 stars. Review coming. Enjoyed the first one more but this one was still good. I like that Lara Jean feels so young and innocent even at 16/17. Usually it seems like it’s the opposite.
Elegy – Tara Hudson. 3.5 stars. I got into this one a bit more than the first two. Overall, a good series I might try re-reading again around Halloween time.
The Isle of the Lost – Melissa de la Cruz. 4 stars. Really cute and it has made me so excited for the movie.
The Revenge Playbook – Rachael Allen. 4 stars. Review coming. Laugh out loud moments, great female friendships, and a little revenge against the boys who treat girls like crap. So much fun to read.
