November Wrap-Up/December TBR

 

November Wrap-Up:

Everless Everless – Sara Holland. 4/5 stars. Review. I really enjoyed the concept of this book and I would love to see a prequel based on the mythology.

Cruel Prince The Cruel Prince – Holly Black. 3.5/5 stars. Review. There were interesting parts but I did find the twists predictable.

Artemis Artemis – Andy Weir. 3.5/5 stars. This was a lot of fun to read. It did get very technical at some points but it was still good.

The Taking big The Taking – Kimberly Derting. 3/5 stars. This one was predictable but I think I was definitely in the mood for some aliens because it was enjoyable.

Runebinder Runebinder – Alex R Kahler. 3/5 stars. This was another one where I really liked the concept, the action was good, but there wasn’t a whole lot of development.

Siege of Shadows Siege of Shadows – Sarah Raughley. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I thought this one was even better than the first. More action, more world-building, and I’m definitely excited for the next one.

Zenith Zenith – Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings. 3.5/5 stars. Review. There were some tropes but it was still a solid first book in what could be a great series.

The Replaced The Replaced – Kimberly Derting. 3/5 stars. See The Taking.

Together at Midnight Together at Midnight – Jennifer Castle. 4/5 stars. I loved the dynamic between Max and Kendall and the concept was so good.

Love, Hate, and Other Filters Love, Hate, and Other Filters – Samira Ahmed. 4/5 stars. Review. Definitely a read that makes an impact.

Dangerous Art of Blending in The Dangerous Art of Blending In – Angelo Surmelis. 4/5 stars. Review. This book was so good. Like the one above, it leaves an impact.

countdown The Countdown – Kimberly Derting. 3/5 stars. See The Taking.

Tempests and Slaughter Tempests and Slaughter – Tamora Pierce. 4.5/5 stars. Such a throwback. I loved the Tortall series when it first came out and I loved seeing the childhood of one of my favourite characters.

Nightwalker Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu. 4/5 stars. I’m not the biggest Batman fan so I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. Bruce made some stupid decisions but I enjoyed his friendship with Harvey and Dianne.

Hazel Wood The Hazel Wood – Melissa Albert. 3.5/5 stars. This one was pretty slow to get into but once I did, it was very good. Creepy and perfect for curling up with.

Sylo big Sylo – DJ MacHale. 3/5 stars. This was a little slow, predictable, but this seems like a series I could really get into.

Heart of Iron Heart of Iron – Ashley Poston. 4.5/5 stars. I absolutely loved this. The characters were great, the plot was great, and this author is definitely making her way up my auto-buy list.

October Wrap-Up/November TBR

 

 

October Wrap-Up:

That Inevitable Victorian Thing That Inevitable Victorian Thing – EK Johnston. 3/5 stars. I really liked the concept of this but the world-building didn’t draw me in.

Burn Burn – Elissa Sussman. 3/5 stars. A companion to Stray, it didn’t seem like much happened until the end.

The Nowhere Girls The Nowhere Girls – Amy Reed. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved the friendship and the conversations between these girls.

Rules of Rain Rules of Rain – Leah Scheier. 3.5/5 stars. Review. Very interesting sibling dynamics.

Love, Life, and the List Love, Life, and the List – Kasie West. 4/5 stars. Very cute and perfectly Kasie West.

Trust Me I'm Lying Trust Me, I’m Lying – Mary Elizabeth Summer. 3/5 stars. This one didn’t really grab me but it did make me want to read the sequel.

Trust me I'm Trouble Trust Me, I’m Trouble – Mary Elizabeth Summer. 3/5 stars. I thought the sequel was a little better than the first.

Kiss me in new york Kiss Me in New York – Catherine Rider. 3.5/5 stars. Review. Cute, quick read.

Lives of Desperate Girls The Lives of Desperate Girls – MacKenzie Common. 3/5 stars. Another one where I liked the concept but the main character could get a bit annoying.

Renegades Renegades – Marissa Meyer. 4.5/5 stars. Review. So good. Loved the superheroes vs villains with a spy twist.

a thousand nights A Thousand Lives – EK Johnston. 3/5 stars. A little slow and predictable but enjoyable.

Spindle Spindle – EK Johnston. 3/5 stars. Same as above.

Into the Bright Unknown Into the Bright Unknown – Rae Carson. 4.5/5 stars. Review. So sad to this this series had ended up it was great through the whole three books.

image Mortal Danger – Ann Aguirre. 3/5 stars. I enjoyed going back into paranormal plots.

Here We Are Now Here We Are Now – Jasmine Warga. 4/5 stars. I really liked the dynamics between the characters.

Gunslinger Girl Gunslinger Girl – Lyndsay Ely. 4/5 stars. Review coming. I love westerns and this futuristic old west setting was so intriguing. And the main character was very badass.

27 Hours 27 Hours – Tristina Wright. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. I appreciated how diverse the cast of characters were in this book. So positive.

idols Idols – Margaret Stohl. 3/5 stars. A solid follow up to Icons. It’s been so long since I read the first though that I had forgotten quite a bit.
