The shortest month of the year is gone, and with it one huge book buying month. So many books came out! I had to show a lot of restraint not to take them all home.
The Dark Days Club – Alison Goodman. 4/5 stars. It was a little creepy at times and I liked that:)
Blackhearts – Nicole Castroman. 4/5 stars. Review. Less pirates than I expected but I enjoyed this origin story.
The Love that Split the World – Emily Henry. 3.5/5 stars. Review. The first part was a little slow and confusing but the last half was really good.
The Lifeboat Clique – Kathy Parks. 3.5/5 stars. Review. This one had a lot of dark humour that I liked but I wish other characters had been more developed.
Liars and Losers Like Us – Ami Allen-Vath. 3/5 stars. Review. This was a lot lighter than I expected considering the suicide mentioned in the synopsis.
Salt to the Sea – Ruta Sepetys. 4.5/5 stars. Can Ruta Sepetys write a bad book? I don’t think so. This was amazing. Loved the setting, the history, the characters.
Glass Sword – Victoria Aveyard. 4/5 stars. Review. Definitely one of my most anticipated books for this year. Loved it, but not as much as the first.
Unhooked – Lisa Maxwell. 4/5 stars. I really liked this take on Peter Pan and Neverland. It was dark and intriguing.
The Heir and the Spare – Emily Albright. 3/5 stars. Review. A really cute but predictable book. Definitely had a royal teen rom-com feel to it.
Siege and Storm – Leigh Bardugo. 4.5/5 stars. So awesome. I love this series and this world-building.
Aristole and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Saenz. 4.5/5 stars. For some reason I always thought I’d read this one but when I started re-reading it(or so I thought) I devoured it because no, I didn’t read it before.
The Great Hunt – Wendy Higgins. 4/5 stars. Review. I love Wendy Higgins writing and I fell in love with the characters she created for this new story.
Invisibility – Andrea Cremer/David Levithan. 3/5 stars. The characters didn’t pull me in but I thought the plot was interesting.
The Girl Who Fell – SM Parker. 4/5 stars. This book was terrifying. As much as I wanted to yell at Zephyr for falling for Alec’s game, I also could understand why and how she was getting sucked in so easily.
Burning Glass – Kathryn Purdie. 4/5 stars. There were times it felt a little long but overall, I loved the characters and I really liked the world that was created.
Breathe – Sarah Crossan. 3.5/5 stars. I really liked the concept but there were times when it felt slow and the characters were a little annoying.
