Another month down. Where is the time going? Lots of great books came out last month and even more are coming out this month. Craziness!!! This month I got to finish a lot of series I’ve always meant to read. I’m feeling very caught up right now.
Redeemed – PC and Kristin Cast. 3/5 stars. Not my favourite series but there were some great moments and characters I really enjoyed.
What We Saw – Aaron Hartzler. 4.5/5 stars. Review. I couldn’t put this one down!
The Pillars of Ponderay – Lindsay Cummings. 4/5 stars. Review. This is such a fun and adventurous middle grade series!
Bloody Valentine – Melissa De La Cruz. 3/5 stars. I’m getting through this series. With this one and other ones from this month, I think I binged out a little too much on vampire books.
The Wrath and the Dawn – Renee Ahdieh. 4/5 stars. Review. A really interesting premise and world but wasn’t completely sold on the romance.
Lost in Time – Melissa De La Cruz. 3/5 stars. More vampires.
Rebel Mechanics – Shanna Swendson. 4/5 stars.Review coming. This was the Uppercase box book of the month and it was really interesting.
Gates of Paradise – Melissa De La Cruz. 3/5 stars. This month will not be so vampire jammed.
Blackwood – Michelle Krys. 3.5/5 stars. A prequel to the Hexed series. Short, easy read.
Charmed – Michelle Krys. 3.5/5 stars. I really like the humour of the main character and all the magic present in our world.
Evermore – Alyson Noel. 2.5/5 stars. The main character was a little annoying so it was a bit hard to get through.
Everything, Everything – Nicola Yoon. 4/5 stars. Review. Really interesting concept and cute romance.
Blue Moon – Alyson Noel. 3/5 stars. She’s still annoying me.
Beastly – Alex Flinn. 3.5/5 stars. I enjoyed the book a lot more than the movie.
A Madness so Discreet – Mindy McGinnis. 4/5 stars. Review coming. Really interesting historical book. It was like criminal minds without technology in some ways.
The Blackthorn Key – Kevin Sands. 4/5 stars. Had to read this one for work but it was entertaining. A good series for middle grade.
Shadowland – Alyson Noel. 3/5 stars. She’s getting less annoying. Or I’m getting used to her.
Legacy of Kings – Eleanor Herman. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. I really liked the world and a lot of the characters and the history but it felt long in some places.
Dark Flame – Alyson Noel. 3/5 stars. About the same level of annoying as the previous book.
Jellicoe Road – Melinda Marchetta. 4/5 stars. Review. It bit hard to get into at first but I liked it once I did get into it.
Future Perfect – Jen Larsen. 3/5 stars. Review. Good concept but it felt like the main character’s story got overwhelmed by all the other characters, especially in the middle.
Night Star – Alyson Noel. 3/5 stars. Almost done another series.
Evernight – Claudia Gray. 3.5/5 stars. Not my favourite Claudia Gray series but I like the main character in this one.
A Step Toward Falling – Cammie McGovern. 3/5 stars. Review coming. I had a hard time with this one. It was a great concept but I just couldn’t get sucked into the storytelling.
Romeo Redeemed – Stacey Jay. 3/5 stars. I am always up for character redemption and I think this book pulled it off well.
Sweet Temptation – Wendy Higgins. 4/5 stars. I loved the Sweet trilogy and this one is the whole series from Kaidan’s POV. A whole new way of looking at the character and some great bromance scenes between him and Blake.
Everlasting – Alyson Noel. 3/5 stars. Another series down.
Stargazer – Claudia Gray. 3.5/5 stars. This one’s my favourite, both for the way the plot moved and the cover. I love this purple.
Hourglass – Claudia Gray. 3.5/5 stars. I really need a vampire break.
The White Rose – Amy Ewing. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. A lot more action than the first book and we get more world-building, which is great.
