One month down, 11 more to go. 2018 reading journey is officially started.
People Like Us – Dana Mele. 3/5 stars. I was really excited about the premise and it was a fun read but it was a little predictable.
Prince in Disguise – Stephanie Kate Strohm. 3/5 stars. A very cute read but the main character did annoy me at times.
The Astonishing Color of After – Emily XR Pan. 4/5 stars. Loved the use of color to describe emotions. Very powerful.
The Last To Let Go – Amber Smith. 4/5 stars. Review. I really loved the dynamics between the siblings as they tried to hold on and let go at the same time.
The Midnights – Sarah Nicole Smetana. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I liked the way music played such a huge role in the plot.
Dear Evan Hansen – Steven Levenson. 5/5 stars. Love the musical and this book just made me love it even more.
Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi. 4.5/5 stars. So good! The world-building in this book was phenomenal.
Saints and Misfits – SK Ali. 4/5 stars. Review. This book was very powerful and I wish it had made the short list for Canada Reads.
This Heart of Mine – CC Hunter. 3.5/5 stars. A definite emotional read.
We’ll Fly Away – Bryan Bliss. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved the friendship between the two main characters.
Grit – Gillian French. 3/5 stars. I was expecting more twists to this mystery.
A Conspiracy of Stars – Olivia A Cole. 3.5/5 stars. I liked the concept but it did feel a little “chosen one special”.
Ace of Shades – Amanda Foody. 4/5 stars. Review. The characters were great and the setting was fantastic.
The Forsaken – Lisa M Stasse. 3/5 stars. I liked the concept but it didn’t really grab me once I started it.
An Abundance of Katherines – John Green. 3.5/5 stars. Not my favourite John Green but it was a good, fun read.
Winterfolk – Janel Kolby. 3.5/5 stars. This was a little hard to get into but once I did, I liked it. Good recommend for strong, young readers.
The Traitor Prince – CJ Redwine. 4/5 stars. I am loving the Ravenspire world that CJ Redwine has created and this was a great addition.
The Uprising – Lisa M Stasse. 3/5 stars. Same as the first. There’s enough to get me to finish the series but it’s not my favourite.
