First wrap-up of the year is here. I can’t decide if January went by too fast or too slow. I got in a lot of reading and it feels surprising that February is here already but at the same time, it feels like January was very long.
Our Own Private Universe – Robin Talley. 3/5 stars. I loved the diversity in this book and that the characters discussed some pretty important and relevant topics but I didn’t really enjoy the main characters’ drama or all their lies.
The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas. 5/5 stars! Review. Such an important read and one I won’t be forgetting.
A List of Cages – Robin Roe. 4.5/5 stars. Review. I loved that the focus on was the bond between the two boys as friends and former foster brothers instead of pushing it to the back for romance.
Allegedly – Tiffany D Jackson. 4/5 stars. Review. This one was another one this month that was hard to read because of what the main character was going through.
Frostblood – Elly Blake. 4/5 stars. Review. There were some slower parts but I really enjoyed the world, the magic, and the characters.
Yellow Brick War – Danielle Paige. 3/5 stars. I started this series on a high and I keep hoping I’ll come back to it but it seems like there’s too much action being packed into such short books.
Long May She Reign – Rhiannon Thomas. 4/5 stars. Review. I really liked that this was more science based than magic based and that the main character didn’t suddenly become someone else when she became queen.
Beast – Brie Spangler. 3/5 stars. I found this one a little hard to get into, like I was waiting for some more that never came.
Blood for Blood – Ryan Graudin. 3.5/5 stars. A really good follow up to Wolf by Wolf.
Love and First Sight – Josh Sundquist. 3.5/5 stars. Review. It was a cute story and a fast read.
The Wish Granter – CJ Redwine. 4/5 stars. I loved the darkness and that we followed three different characters and how everything intertwined with each other.
Hunted – Meagan Spooner. 4/5 stars. Review. Another re-telling with a darkness to it. I loved how capable Yeva was and that we got some little scenes from the Beast’s POV.
Blood Rose Rebellion – Rosalyn Eves. 3.5/5 stars. Review. This was slower than I expected but still had an interesting magical system and had many scenes to make me get a little emotional.
Who’s 50 – Doctor Who. 4/5 stars. It’s Doctor Who. I just wonder why it took me so long to read it when it’s been on my shelf forever.
The Inventor’s Secret – Andrea Cremer. 3/5 stars. I found it a little hard to get into this one but it may have been because I read it with a lot of people around. It intrigued me enough to give the sequel a chance.
You’re Welcome, Universe – Whitney Gardner. 4/5 stars Review coming. I loved all the descriptions of art and how the main character connected to hers.
Caraval – Stephanie Garber. 4.5/5 stars. Review coming. Fell in love with this one right from the start. So excited to see where it goes from here.
Breakfast Served Anytime – Sarah Combs. 3/5 stars. Another one I had a hard time getting into. The synopsis made me think it would be a “me” book but it just wasn’t.
