Just an okay read.


Review:

When the Sky Fell on Splendor - Emily Henry

I thought the book was just ok, I was thinking it would be my type of book. But sadly that was just not the case unfortunately. I thought the characters were just ok, the plot just wasn’t very drawn out to me. And I didn’t care for the ending and was kind of confused on exactly what took place. I am sure there are other readers that will love the book. I am just not one of them.

Renegades and loving Adrian!!!


Renegades - Marissa Meyer

So far I am really enjoying the book, I am currently on page 248. I like Nova but I wish she would loosen up some. I understand were she’s coming from with everything that happened to her at such a young age. But I need her to not make me depressed every time she’s on a page.

Adrian I freaking love, I think he has a very unique and interesting power. And I love that he has a secret his trying to hid. I also really love his other teammates.

Liked it but not as much as other readers.


Review:

The Poppy War - R. F Kuang

I thought the book was pretty good. I loved the world building and the History of the past wars. But I didn’t really care about any of the characters. Rin drove me nuts, I felt like she rushed into a lot of things, without thinking things through first. I know people would say its because she’s young. But I don’t think that was the case, at least for things she does later in the book. 

I really didn’t like Altan either, and I wonder why Rin acted the way she did around him. There are a lot of trigger Warnings in this book, rape, torture, self harm, to name a few. 

I did like it enough that I do want to read the next one, that comes out in August. Especially after how the book ended. 

I would recommend this book, but look into all the other trigger warnings, that I didn’t mention above, because there’s definitely a lot more than what I did list.

Just might be my favorite Book of the Year.


Review:

Thunderhead - Neal Shusterman

I freaking loved this book and what a hell of a ride. I just couldn’t believe all that went down throughout the whole book. And that ending, how did Neal Shusterman, come up with that cliffhanger ending? I just can’t wait to find out when Toll is coming out, especially after that ending. 

Still freaking love Rowan like crazy. I love someone that can be complex and have some badness in them. But you know that they have a soft side to them as well. 

I also liked Citra a lot more in this book  than I did in scythe. And I loved the new character, not going to say the persons name, in case you haven’t read the story yet. But I wonder what is going to happen with this person next.

Another fun Read.


Review:

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow - Jessica Townsend

I really loved this book and I really love the characters and the plot. Probably one of my favorite middle grade book. I couldn’t believe how much fun I had reading the book. I loved that I started the book yesterday morning and finished it this morning. I can see why some readers compare this book to Harry Potter, but at the same time, you can tell that the author isn’t trying to be Harry Potter. And I freaking loved it for that reason, but also just because it was a really good book and really enjoyable. If you want to read a book that will only take a day or two to read and not take it so seriously, but won’t bore you either. Than this book might be the book for you.

WOW this book was definitely worth the Hype!!!


Review:

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - Taylor Jenkins Reid

I really don’t know what to say about this book but boy did it have me freaking crying. While the character Evelyn Hugo had a lot of flaws, I freaking loved her, and what a freaking life she had. My favorite of her husband’s was definitely Harry. 

I just loved the book so much and it was so nice to love a book so much that wasn’t fantasy or scifi. I do love both of those genres, but once in a while you want to branch out of your comfort zone and go and try to jump into the ocean.

So this is one book I feel that was worth the hype.

Disappointed Me.


Review:

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) - Holly Black

I was so disappointed in this book, I really thought it was going to be such an awesome book, but that so wasn’t the case. I will continue on in the series, because I love to give books another chance, especially if it’s a start of a series. But if the wicked King also let’s me down, I won’t read the last one. 

I really didn’t care for any of the characters. Whenever I start to like Jude again, she goes and does something that makes me not like her again. 

I have a love hate relationship with Cardan, his a bully but he also has times especially towards the end, that you can see that he does have a sensitive side to him. 

I can’t stand Jude’s twin sister at all. The only character I really like a lot is Vivi. 

I do love that it shows that fae have a vindictive personality. And they don’t sugarcoat it. The ending is what makes me want to continue on with the series.
