Marly's Ghost | David Levithan

⭐️⭐️
A re-telling of the Christmas carol based around Valentine‘s Day. I just really couldn‘t get into this book, but was a very easy read. I do love the other books by David Levithan that I‘ve read but this was my least favourite.

Very interesting and different read. Found the story really gripping and wanted to know all the back stories of Tom Hazard.

This is the fastest I‘ve ever read a book, can‘t believe it only took me 24 hours. It was just such a good cute book and I really can‘t wait to see the film.

One of my New Years resolutions was to read Narnia; as it‘s only taken me till I‘m 22 to finally read it.

TheReadingMermaid Worst ending EVER! (IMO) 2y

I found this to be a long read as I just couldn‘t be bothered to pick it back up as I didn‘t really get into it. Going to force myself to read the last 2 books as I‘m determined to finish the series.

Christy I like The Last Battle :) 2y

Scrappy Little Nobody | Anna Kendrick
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️
I would give this 3.5 stars (if we had half star emojis). It was an enjoyable read but mainly from the fact I love Anna Kendrick! I did get bored a couple of times hence why it‘s only 3.5 stars. But I did find it interesting learning about the struggles she was going through with money even whilst she was in some of her major roles (I always had the impression actors get loads of money.)

First book of 2018. Great quick read with lots of twists which kept me guessing but it is a very twisted story!

Couldn't decide whether to give it 2 or 3 stars, I just really wasn't sure how I felt about this whole book. I felt like it could have been so much better and I didn't like drake or floras parents.

kath_reads Same. This book has so much more to offer. 2y
RoxanneMilward @kath_reads I'm glad you agree with me. yeh I was very disappointed x (edited) 2y

A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J. Maas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I seemed to have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book. I did get a bit bored and lost interest a couple of times (more towards the beginning and middle) but there was more bits that I loved and couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. I did grow to love Rhys and his friends by the end of the book. #sarahjmaas #acotar #acourtofthornsandroses

It took me ages to get into this book but I'd heard so many good things about it I kept on reading. It must have been about half way through it that I got hooked and had to order the next books as I was intrigued to find out what's going to happen next.

Another great book from John Green. I wasn't disappointed but I do think all of his other books are much better than this one as I feel like there wasn't much of a storyline. But I do just love his beautiful writing.

Carry On | Rainbow Rowell
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have loved all Rainbow Rowell books and I did enjoy this but probably my least favourite of her books. I didn't really connect with Simon Snows character but I loved Baz and Penelope. The ending feels like it could still have a sequel as there is still some unanswered questions; like what happened to Nicodemus and Lucy?

Because I loved the Jane Green books I've read before I picked this one up without even reading the blurb; I have to say i wasn't disappointed! It is such a gripping book and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I really loved the characters and the story was really gripping.

I had high expectations for this as it was in Zoella and friends book club but I was a bit disappointed. I didn't really like Griffin as a character and I wasn't too keen on parts of the storyline.

We Were Liars | E. Lockhart

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I decided to reread this after talking about this book with my friend & it was as good as the first time!
The book is about the perfect Sinclair family who aren't as perfect as they first seem. Cadence tells us the story about the summers she spends in Beechwood. Then summer fifteen she has an accident and she can't remember what actually happened. So 2 summers later she goes back to find out what actually happened.

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is has been on my #tbr list for a while now and I have to say it is a very eye opening book. I can't imagine what it would have been like to live in Garden Heights and to go through what Starr did. I can't believe there is still places in the world where things like this happen. It's a must read for everyone.

Nikki15 Love that your books are organised by colour!! ❤️🌈 2y
RoxanneMilward @Nikki15 thanks :') only annoy thing when each book in a series are different colours 2y
Nikki15 @RoxanneMilward Ah that is a little frustrating. I want to organise mine like that but most of them are black!! That's what happens when you used to read only crime novels!! 2y
RoxanneMilward @Nikki15 I have a shelf just for series haha. Most of mine seem to be blue 2y

13 Reasons Why | Jay Asher
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️
After being addicted to the Netflix show of this I thought I'd give this a read. It was a good book but Jay Asher's writing style was a little confusing with it flipping between Clay and Hannah. I never say this but I did prefer the show to the book so I'm glad I'd watched it first. But still a story I think everyone should read and shows that your actions however little you think they maybe can affect someone.

The only good thing about this book was that it was very quick and easy read; but other than that I was very disappointed. I felt that the ending of the story was very rushed and thought the story was very unrealistic and couldn't connect with any of the characters.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Id seen so many photos of this book pop up on my instagram feed and decided to get it as a holiday read without actually knowing nothing about it. From the cover I thought it was going to be completely different from what I thought! Even though I was unsure to start off with I really got into this book and didn't take me long to finish. The more I read the more I wanted to find out about with a few shocks along the way.

I picked this up as it was in Zoellas book club with WHSmith a while back but finally got to read it in the sun on holiday. Was a very easy and quick read with a really good storyline.
