Finally read this about 3 years after getting it from NetGalley. Kicked myself for not having read this sooner but also the author also hasn‘t published anything since 2013 so I don‘t feel as bad.

Loved this as my first book of 2018. Couldn't have chosen a better book to start off the 2018 reading year.

The perfect end to a great series. I've enjoyed all 6 books in this series more than I could explain, and I wish to find a love like I've experienced through the characters of these books ❤️

The Face on the Milk Carton | Caroline B. Cooney

I was pretty underwhelmed by this, even though I never had high expectations. I felt like the mystery was too obvious, though that could be because I'm really used to reading more complicated mysteries. It was an okay read, but really not that special ~ 3 stars

An Uncertain Choice | Jody Hedlund

I did end up enjoying this book, but I think it maybe could have stayed a standalone because of how things ended. I don't think I'll pick up the rest of the series, but you never know | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

I've always really enjoyed Jennifer's books, and she has never failed to bring me on some kind of emotional rollercoaster with her mysteries | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Also just started this for my World Lit class. I hope it like it cause this is about Chinese culture AKA mine and if I don't like it, you can bet my prof is gonna hear a lot from me in the discussion (she'll probably hear a lot from me anyways)

Currently reading this. I was supposed to have it done before publication, but then college got in the way. I'm enjoying it so far, and it's nice to sit down and read one of my own books for the first time in awhile

Meanwhile, your other best friend tells you not to buy this book and lies by saying you wouldn't like it, all so he can secretly buy you the 25th anniversary edition for your birthday 😊

When you best friend knows you so well, she buys you a book to help you think like your favorite British detective. Can't wait to read this and become more like Sherlock!!

Angela Marsons has done it again with another great installment in her D.I. Kim Stone series. Her books always leave me wanting to read more of her work and constantly anticipating her next book | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I think this book confused me more than it did anything else. When the end came around, I still felt like I had no idea what was going on or what just happened | ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Not as great as the second book, but that's probably because I already knew how this was going to end and therefore felt like it dragged on a little too much

I ended up liking this a lot more than I had expected. And surprisingly, I wasn't too lost considering it's been three years since I read the first book

Only Ever Yours | Louise O'Neill

Unfortunately, I fell so far from the spectrum of people who liked this. I ended up giving it a 0.5 star rating because I despised the execution so much. The world building was lacking and there were too many characters, all of whom eventually blended into one

I might be biased when it cones to this book because I'm a huge fan of Dan and Phil in general, but I LOVED this book so much! I listened to the audiobook while reading it at the same time, and for the first time in awhile, my heart fluttered while reading a book ❤️ This is truly great

She wouldn't ruin it by wishing things could be more. She would be grateful for what affection she did have
