June Wrap Up

June has actually been the slowest reading month for me this year and the 1st time I DNF’d a book this year…… I did not add the book I did not finish to my list because I stopped reading it and I will not be counting it in my books read this month.

With that being said here are the books that I did finish this month. There are a total of 6 books and 1 of those was a re-read for me.

Book Review: The Upside of Unrequited

Author: Becky Albertalli

Goodreads Description: Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

My Thoughts: This is the second book that I’ve read by this author and she did not disappoint. She managed to give me the feels of being back in high school and feeling like everyone else has there stuff together but me. I like the way she tackled things that happen in our society all while making you collect to her characters. I flew through this book, perfect for when you are in a contemporary mood. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars and would def recommend this. Have any of you read this book? If so what did you think? Happy reading y’all!!!!

March Wrap Up

Here are the books I read in the month of March along with my ratings.

I had a pretty great reading month and I’m shocked I was able to read this much. As you can see I really enjoyed the majority of the books. How did your reading month go? If you read any of these I’d love to here your thoughts. Happy reading y’all!!!!

Book Review: Children of Blood and Bone

Author: Tomi Adeyemi

Goodreads Description: Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.

My Thoughts: I was very excited about this book, I even pre ordered the Barnes and Noble Special Edition. To me it did not disappoint, I loved the family dynamics shown as well as how the female characters found their strength there was no “Prince Charming” character coming to save the day. Also growing up with a protective brother I enjoyed seeing Zelie’ and her brother work out his need to protect her with her need to be independent. All in all I rated this 4 out of 5 stars…..my one issue was a romance in this story that seemed out of place (I don’t want to spoil the story) but it just did not seem like the character would fall for that person. I would definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait for book 2. Have any of you read it if so what were your thoughts? Happy Reading Y’all!!!!
