Binge watched season 2 of 13 Reasons Why in a 24 hour period. Not my smartest decision. My brain was not in the mood to read the types of books I’d chosen so it was harder to get into them. Something a little heavier might be in order this week.

March Wrap-Up/April TBR

And we’re three months into 2018. There’s been some great books that have come out already and there’s so much more to come! April and May are going to be busy months.

March Wrap-Up:

Identical Identical – Ellen Hopkins. 3/5 stars. I find most of her books pretty easy to predict but they’re fast reads.

Where I Live (Final Cover) Where I Live – Brenda Rufener. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved the friendships in this book.

image The Sword of Summer – Rick Riordan. 4/5 stars. I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick this up because I love Rick Riordan.

13065327 Wild Cards/Better Than Perfect – Simone Elkeles. 3/5 stars. The paperback had a name change so I thought I’d already read this.

Save the Date Save the Date – Morgan Matson. 4/5 stars. Review. Great family dynamics, so sweet and funny at the same time.

Aru Shah Aru Shah and the End of Time – Roshani Chokshi. 4/5 stars. I can definitely see why this was chosen for Rick Riordan’s new imprint. It had the feel of the Percy Jackson while still being amazing on its own.

Miles Away From You Miles Away from You – AB Rutledge. 2.5/5 stars. I had a hard time connecting to this character.

Spindle Fire Spindle Fire – Lexa Hillyer. 3/5 stars. A little predictable but definitely picking up the next one.

Chaotic Good Comps14.indd Chaotic Good – Whitney Gardner. 3.5/5 stars. Review. This was cute and I enjoyed the comics included.

Ash Princess Ash Princess – Laura Sebastian. 3.5/5 stars. Very solid fantasy. I didn’t feel like it stood out from all the other fantasy books but it was still good.

34726469 Sky in the Deep – Adrienne Young . 4.5/5 stars. If I hadn’t had to wake up early the next morning, I would have finished this in a night.

38741488 The Last – Katherine Applegate. 5/5 stars! I fell in love with this world and cannot wait for the next one!

Royals Royals – Rachel Hawkins. 4/5 stars. This was really cute and I liked the characters.

32928935 The Window – Amelia Brunskill. 4/5 stars. Mind officially twisted. Great thriller.

35068585 Ice Wolves – Amie Kaufman. 4/5 stars. Another Middle Grade read this month that was  great. The mythology was so interesting.

brave-new-girl Brave New Girl – Rachel Vincent. 3/5 stars. Solid start. Will definitely buy the next one.

Time Bomb Time Bomb – Joelle Charbonneau. 4/5 stars. I did figure out some major key details in this one but it was still very intriguing. And very relevant to today.

Wicked Deep The Wicked Deep – Shea Ernshaw. 4/5 stars. I’m not sure I would have picked this up without the Netflix announcement but I am so glad I did. It was dark and interesting and I finished it in a night.

A little sour this week because, for the second week in a row, Love Simon isn’t playing at my theatre. We’ve made plans to go to see it in the next city over, an hour away, so that’s two hours of driving time when I could be reading.
