Ellie Agresti‘s dumped by her boyfriend before their senior year for his best friend. Then, she has to share Life Skills with them and be put in the misfit group. She doesn‘t expect to get along with her group, especially Luke. Will he help her move on?

This books was okay. It had its cute and funny moments, but the writing could‘ve been better, especially for the dialogues.

Julie‘s boyfriend, Sam, whom she‘s planned her future with, dies. She misses the sound of his voice, so she calls him, and he picks up. Julie thinks it‘s their second chance and she will do anything to not break their connection; but for how long?
This book was okay. The plot was creative. I liked the diversity in it, but it was too sad for me. I‘m not a fan of sad books. I thought the ending was appropriate, especially the epilogue.

Daunis Fontaine witnesses a murder of a dear friend that‘s related to a local drug operation. She‘s forced to go undercover for the FBI w/ someone she already knows. Together they investigate who‘s running the drug operation that are killing multiple people.
This book was such a beautiful read. As a Native American myself, I found this book to be such a joy to have a strong female main character. I enjoyed most of the plot, mainly the ending.

Pip‘s still recovering from her last investigation, when she discovers someone threatening & stalking her. That leads her to uncover a local serial killer from years ago who‘s still at large.
I enjoyed this book more than the 2nd one, mainly b/c there was more of a connection between Pip & Ravi; I wish they had a little more towards the end. It was a good wrap up for the series. The events that took place were certainly unexpected, in a good way.

Mia travels to Paris to attend an elite ballet program for 6 weeks. She planned to focus on her role in the school play, until Louis comes along and diverts her interest.

I liked the plot of this book, but the quality of writing could‘ve been better. I wanted more of a build up to Mia and Louis‘s relationship. It occurred too quickly. I did like the relationship build up between her and her competition.

Nick and Charlie are together in Paris for a school field trip. Who will they tell about their relationship and how will they react? Who else will get together on the trip?

My love for this series continues to grow. This is my favorite book of the series so far. I can see the relationship between Nick and Charlie grow. Also, the artistic transitions were much better in this one, clearer.

When I woman comes up to Alexis in her cat café claiming she‘s her sister & their father needs a kidney. Alexis calls up her best friend, Noah. The more they hang out with each other, the more they move out of the friend zone.

This is my favorite book of the series so far. I like the chemistry between Alexis and Noah. There‘s that right amount of spice. And of course there‘s cats.

When Brynn and Mia were younger, they were accused of killing their best friend Summer. They have returned to their hometown to uncover the truth of who actually murdered Summer. What will they uncover?

I‘m a little disappointed by this book because Lauren Oliver is one of my favorites authors. It has a great opening line, but the beginning is slow. The writing is poetic and descriptive, but there were some parts the book could‘ve done without.

Pippa said she was done being a detective after the Addie Bell case. However, when Jamie Reynolds goes missing, she chooses to help find him. What will she uncover this time around?

Like the first one, this book has a lot of twists and turns, and I love it. It doesn‘t end how I thought it would in the beginning. I do wish there was more romantic moments between Pippa and Ravi though.

Liv Papandreas gets fired for standing up to her boss‘s sexual harassment. So, she turns to Braden Mack for help in trying to exploit her boss‘s actions. She tries to deny the attraction between them, but it doesn‘t last.
This book was so cute! I‘m totally immersed with this series. I did like this one more than the first one. The plot was better. The characters had more chemistry. I just wish it had more spice.

Isla has has a crush on Josh since freshman year. Now, in their senior, he doesn‘t have a girlfriend anymore, so she decides to go for it.
I really enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, so I thought I‘d finish up the series. I also enjoyed this one. I liked the characters and their relationship with each other. It wrapped up the series in a nice bow. You get to know how Anna and Étienne and Lola and Cricket end up.

Devon and Chiamaka are being attacked by unknown enemy, Aces. They‘re leaking all their secrets to everyone in their school. Devon and Chiamaka have to find out who they are & stop them before they ruin their futures.
I wasn‘t prepared for the plot of this book. It definitely took a turn toward the end. I liked it. I feel that the POV switches were important to the plot. I feel there are a couple unanswered questions though that I wanted answered.

There‘s a serial killer in Osborne whose killing high school students. Makani and her friends have to find out who is before they kill them.
This book was okay. It had a kind of happy ending; they caught the killer and everything. I just think it was drawn out too long that it made it kind of boring.
There‘s the movie on Netflix. Like every adaptation, it doesn‘t quite follow the book.

I didn‘t like this one as much as the 1st one, b/c I was kind of disappointed about the ending; I wanted this to be the last one. However, I still loved the writing b/c like the first one, it was poetic, such as, the description of the climax battle. It was very immersive, which is why it was my favorite part. The characters were also more flushed out; I enjoyed the interactions between Zélie & Roën.

The hype is worth it! This was a good mystery! I liked Pippa as a main character, and that rarely occurs. She‘s smart and doesn‘t take crap from anyone. I enjoyed plot because it was fast-paced and I didn‘t find any holes. I can‘t wait to read the sequel.

The story was slow through until the end. I liked the ending because all the relationships tie up nicely. I just wish there was more of a connection between Abby and Leo. Their relationship seemed kind of boring until the end. I did like Abby and Savvy‘s sister-relationship development. I also liked the LGBTQIA inclusion and how Lord worked it naturally in the story and not made it the center of it.

What she doesn‘t know about Jane is she‘s a time traveler from the 70s stuck on the Q train. August and Jane have to try get Jane unstuck from the train.

In Heartstopper pt. 2, Nick admits his feelings for Charlie. They start going out, but in secret. Nick is not ready to come out to his friends or the school yet about him being bisexual.

So far, I‘m enjoying this whole series. It‘s just so cute. Nick and Charlie are my favorite. In this one, I like that the major and minor characters are becoming more flushed out.

This was such an amazing read! The writing was exquisite; it was detailed in a poetic way. I loved the characters because Adeyemi has her characters think before they do something. Every move is intentional. Her characters are definitely round characters, they have their good and bad qualities, which I think is essential. The plot is just incredible. You will certainly feel empowered and as if you‘re going on a journey along with the characters.

In the volume 1 of this comic series, Nick is partnered with Charlie in one of his classes. He starts to grow feeling for him, so he questions if Charlie isn‘t straight and likes him back.
Charlie thought he was straight, until he got to hang out and know Nick. Now, he starts to question his sexuality.

This comic was so cute! I loved the characters, the illustrations, and the plot.

This book was so good! I wasn‘t expecting it to be this good. I loved the strong primary and secondary female characters who are all unapologetic about their personalities, which is something I think is good for teenagers and adults. The plot was well executed. There is a lesbian romance, but it‘s not the root of the problem, which I liked. I wish there was more diversity in race though.

It was a real delight to read this book. If you enjoyed reading Anna and the French Kiss, then you will also enjoy this companion novel. It was cute because of Lola and Cricket‘s relationship development. I also liked how Lola‘s eccentric, over-the-top clothing style is supported by the people who love her. This shows teens that even though they‘re different from other people, they should embrace it, not hide it.

Then, the twins, Calliope and Cricket, move back in next door. Lola‘s attention turns to Cricket rather than her boyfriend.

I loved the diversity in this book. I think it‘s important for both teens and adults to learn about other cultures. I actually like the main characters in here. It was a political book, but not too political. There was still enough romance to be shared.

I enjoyed reading this book for a second time. I really delved into it this time. The first time I read it was when I was in high school.
There‘s action, suspense, romance, & a little bit of mystery. Sounds like a lot, but Lauren Oliver handles it effortlessly. The character arcs for both the main and secondary characters were my favorite. I think they were important for a book like this.
Going to watch the show now.
