How is it June already? Seriously? Where is this year going? So many books have come out that I want to read and so many more are coming out. I need a time turner.
Dividing Eden – Joelle Charbonneau. 3.5/5 stars. I really loved the siblings battling for the throne and the different ways they planned their strategies. The world-building seemed to lack a little but I’m hopeful to see more in the next book.
If Birds Fly Back – Carlie Sorosiak. 3.5/5 stars. I really liked seeing the two main characters bond over their need to get to know an elderly gentleman and how it played into their separate journeys.
Honor Girl – Maggie Thrash. 3.5/ stars. It was interesting but I do find I get more distracted while reading graphic novels for some reason.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved the setting, the sass of the characters, and the growth arc.
The Art of Starving – Sam J Miller. 4/5 stars. Review. This book reminded me of We Are The Ants in some ways, as in it made me question if certain things were actually happening or if they were all in the main character’s mind.
Signs Point to Yes – Sandy Hall. 3/5 stars. This was a cute, easy read. Very good for the summer or for a light read mood.
This Is How It Happened – Paula Stokes. 4/5 stars. Review. Paula Stokes just keeps getting better. I loved the main character and the whole premise.
Ginny Moon – Benjamin Ludwig. 4.5/5 stars. Review. I don’t venture outside my reading YA comfort zone often but when I do, I love it when it’s books like this that keep me up until 3am.
The Both Die at the End – Adam Silvera. 4/5 stars. I think Adam Silvera likes getting me attached to amazing characters only to break my heart. So mean.
Project Semicolon – Amy Bleuel. 5/5 stars. This is one of those life-changing types of books where I can’t rate anything but top marks.
Little Wrecks – Meredith Miller. 3.5/5 stars. My enjoyment of the 3 different girls’ POVs was uneven so that played into my overall enjoyment.
Who’s That Girl – Blair Thornburgh. 4/5 stars. Review. This one surprised me with how much I ended up liking it. I just fell in love with the characters.
Bad Romance – Heather Demetrios. 4.5/5 stars. Review. Heather Demetrios is another one who just keeps getting better. This book was terrifying in all the right kind of wake up calls ways.
After the Game – Abbi Glines. 4/5 stars. I think of the three in this series, this one is my favourite. It got to me.
Letters to the Lost – Brigid Kemmerer. 4.5/5 stars. I’m so sad it’s over but so happy there’s a companion coming. These characters were amazing, their journey was great, everything was great.
Everything All At Once – Katrina Leno. 4/5 stars. This is a great summer read that reminded me a bit of Since You’ve Been Gone crossed with The Loose Ends List.
Scrappy Little Nobody – Anna Kendrick. 4/5 stars. Love Anna Kendrick. She’s perfect.
