On the library shelf, I found “TTYL”. It looked like a quick read and one that would give me nostalgia of the books I read back in grade four, five and some of the sixth grade. Although I was completely wrong because this book was not like the children ones I read before. In fact, I wouldn‘t recommend this to kids at all. Nonetheless, it was still outstanding. I felt so connected to the characters and the plot line was magnificent.

Dana.o Would recommend to realistic fiction lovers. 8/10 2mo

Needing a break, I came across this quick read. I finished it in one sitting, and to my surprise it was actually pretty good. I mean, it wasn‘t outstanding. Not horrible either, it‘s a novel in verse with some impactful quotes. I can‘t quite explain it... one of a kind. It has everyone‘s perspective on her suicide and honestly, it‘s fun to read.

Wow. This book was amazing. I found it while browsing the library ( in the mystery section of course) and I had never seen it before. The love story was truly heartwarming, the mystery had me terror stricken, and with every page I turned I was engaged. Sure it had a bumpy start, but so does every other book. Heart beating one million beats per minute I finished The Body Finder. Searching for a sequel...

This book is your average murder mystery filled with twists, thrilling scares, and a love story that is sure to warm your heart. The ending was happy, bubbly and cheerful. Which just didn‘t sit right with me. I usually like my mystery‘s to end off in a mysterious, dark and haunting way, this one didn‘t. A little birdie told me that the sequel was worse—so I‘m not going to read it.

tessabordalejo I also despised the ending of this book with a passion. (edited) 3mo
Dana.o @tessabordalejo I don‘t know why it ended happily, it just didn‘t suit it. 3mo

I was scared to start this book because sequels usually end up bad for me and make me regret reading them. But I did and it was outstanding. It flowed through smoothly, and made perfect sence I couldn‘t have thought up of a better ending myself! I loved this series and will continue to love it till a better one dethrones it.

While reading “Evermore”, I found this book. It was a quick read, but one that had an impact. At first, it just seemed like an average eight-grade-boy-diary, kinda like the wimpy kid series—I was wrong. It took the darkest turn that I didn‘t expect it to take. Staying up at night to finish it, and when I did,It felt like a blade piercing through my chest. I can‘t say much about it, but I would recommend it to any realistic fiction lovers. :)

When I finished “Dead Girls Society”, I thought it was the best book I‘ve ever read— and it was. It‘s still an outstanding piece of writing and completely changed my reading journey. But this book took the number one spot. I was recommended it by my school librarian, and... wow. I‘ve never read anything like it; I never wanted to stop reading it. It had me up past my bed time and when I finished it I was in shock. Running to get the sequel.

Dana.o I‘ll update y‘all as soon as I finish the sequel. :) 5mo
GondorGirl I really enjoyed this one. The sequel is on my list and I really should try to get to it soon... 5mo
GondorGirl Okay, so, your post inspiration me and I listened to the entire sequel on audiobook today! I hope you enjoy Evermore as much as I did! 5mo
Dana.o @GondorGirl Thank you:)I did end up finishing the sequel yesterday and I loved it! Will be posting about it soon:D 5mo

One Thursday I found this book in the school library and I fell in love. The size of he book, cover, and font. I could take it with me anywhere. Aesthetics weren‘t the only thing I liked about this book. The story took my by heart. Connecting to each of the characters, the author really did a great job in writing the book. Like watching my favourite Netflix series, this had me on my toes. Lots of shocking chapters, emotional ones too. #favourite

I found this series in the library and needed a short read. Finishing this book in one day I would recommend it to poetry lovers but it didn‘t really “strike?” me as a book. I‘m starting the sequel “I Hate That Cat” and I‘ll update you to as how it goes. :)

“Dead Girls Society” was an outstanding book! I normally don‘t reach for thicker books but I wanted to try something new and this book was a great way to do it. I loved reading it.The mystery of the book and the romance and the action. All tied together to make the best book I‘ve read this year so far. I really recommend this book to anyone who is a mystery junkie.

After I had finished all my library books, I needed something to read for LA. So I grabbed this book off of Mrs Babki‘s shelf. And I was surprised by how deep, meaningful and REAL this book was. I even ended up reading the sequel. To be honest though I quite enjoyed these books I found them quite repetitive. That‘s the reason I wouldn‘t put them in my top ten. But other than that, “The Words Of A Madman” was a good read.

MrsBabki Excellent review, Dana!!! 8mo

When I started this book my expectations were high. Solely because I‘ve read multiple of her books. But, I was let down it didn‘t have the action I was looking for but when it came closer to the ending chapters i couldn‘t take my eyes off the pages. This author ended this book really well and it was a great read.

MrsBabki Another great review! You‘re on fire! Watch capitalizing “i”. 8mo

At first this book was quite boring. And I even thought of quitting the book, but I didn‘t. I kept reading. And I‘m so glad I did. The more I read, the better it got. I was hooked! And the plot twist at the end shocked me. Overall, I would rate this book an eight out of ten.

I have not completed this book yet, and I‘ll get it done soon. But so far this book hasn‘t gotten that exiting and has been a “flat book” I‘m not sure what other way to put it but hopefully it will get better by the end.

Dana.o ⚠️UPDATE ⚠️ At the time that I posted this. I had one more page till the story I chose was complete. And to my surprise, sadly this book didn‘t really improve. It wasn‘t horrible, but I wouldn‘t recommend it. 9mo

This book was recommended to me by a friend and the story was unique and one of a kind. I loved how it was a novel in verse so it didn‘t overwhelm me. I would rate this book a nine out of ten. Because it wasn‘t extremely amazing but it was still great.

This was my first library book of the year. And to be honest I only chose it because it was a short mystery. But to my surprise this book ended up being in my top ten! This book got me hooked from beginning to end, and I couldn‘t stop reading. It was fast paced, a quick read and had me on the edge. The only thing I didn‘t like was the ending. It could have been way better, and it was confusing. You‘d have to read the book to understand.
