Again, but Better | Christine Riccio
post image
Pickpick

“Again, but Better” was witty and charming! If you‘re a book tube fan, you know that Shane IS Christine! Many have criticized this, but I found it an interesting aspect of the book. For it being a debut novel, I think it is pretty good! I‘m not going to claim to love everything about it, but generally speaking I enjoyed reading it!

Rated 4/5 on GR :)

Since Last Summer | Joanna Philbin
post image
Pickpick

You may be wondering, Sami, why are you reading a summer contemporary on Christmas? My answer is... well I don‘t really have an answer. The heart wants what it wants? This book was sort of average and disappointing compared to its previous installment. Not a whole lot actually happens. Lots of petty drama which is fun and entertaining but kind of lack luster.

Rated 3.5/5 on gr :)

If I Should Die | Amy Plum
post image
Pickpick

Bought this book used on amazon and it came as a library copy? Oh well! Hopefully no one jacked a copy from their local biblioteca and decided to make a few bucks! Overall the finale to the revenants trilogy was great! First 150 pages dragged on a little but the majority of it was fast paced and action packed.

Rated 4/5 on goodreads :)

Until I Die | Amy Plum

The second book in the Revenants trilogy was much better that book one! “Until I Die” had an ending that made ME want to die but hopefully everything gets sorted in the finale!

Rated 4/5 on goodreads :)

Since You've Been Gone | Morgan Matson

SO SO SO CUTE! The relationships in this book are really what made it for me. Matson has the ability to make you truly care about the characters she writes. Frank was perfection in the shape of a teenage boy and I LOVE him!

Rated 5/5 on gr :)

The Winner's Kiss | Marie Rutkoski
post image
Pickpick

The last book in the winners trilogy! I found this book to be much better than the second which I was super happy about because The Winner‘s Crime was mildly painful. Kestrel and Arin are the cutest couple and the fact that they weren‘t separated the entire book this time around was phenomenal. Kestrels father makes me angry and Roshar is hilarious!

Rated 4/5 on GR

The Winner's Crime | Marie Rutkoski

Was this book good? Heck YA! Was it stressful and painful? You know it!
This book was nearly the death of me. I almost gave up on it because literally NOTHING goes the way you want it to. However, I kept reading and although the ending was heart wrenching I found the last 100 pages to be super fast paced and entertaining

Rated 4/5 on goodreads :)

The Winner's Curse | Marie Rutkoski

I re-read The Winner‘s Curse so that I could continue with the trilogy and I loved it even more than I remembered! I read this book about 2-3 years ago but never continued on to The Winner‘s Crime. Can‘t wait to jump into #2!

Leah on the Offbeat | Becky Albertalli
post image
Bailedbailed

Love Becky Albertalli as an author, but Leah‘s character is by far my least favorite. Keep in mind I only made it about 1/3 into the book before DNF-ing it so it may get better but so far I‘m not enjoying being in her head. She comes off as unnecessarily rude at random times and just doesn‘t seem like that good of a friend. I love seeing little snippets of Bram and Simon but other than that it doesn‘t seem worth the pain.Super sad I didn‘t love it

Hello, this book is quite possibly the cutest thing you‘ll ever read in your life, THATS ALL! :)

But no, really, I‘m aware that I‘m a little late to this party, but this book has very quickly become one of my favorites, seriously adorable.

Rated it 5/5 on goodreads ❤️

rachelsbrittain You should definitely check out Leah on the Offbeat and What If It's Us, too, since you enjoyed this one (I just finished What If It's Us and it was so, so cute) 😊 11mo
Smae99 @rachelsbrittain I definitely will! I already bought Leah on the Offbeat so I‘m reading it next! 😄 11mo

A super cute, short, feel good read. Josie is a hilarious character and I found myself laughing out loud at multiple points in this book. All I have to say is Josie + Stu 4ever ❤️

I rated it 4/5 stars on goodreads :)

Finished in less than 24 hours, Turtles All the Way Down is AMAZING. I really appreciate the realistic way in which mental health issues are approached. This book represents so many people and what they struggle with everyday. LOVE. ❤️

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
post image
Pickpick

FANTASTIC. Although, it took me quite awhile to finish, I LOVED the message and how our 👑 Starr fit into it all. An eye opening novel about police brutality and other social issues, The Hate You Give is something I feel all people should read to give perspective and insight. I can‘t wait to see it brought to life on the big screen ❤️

Rated 4/5 stars on goodreads :)

After the major success that was Netflix‘s adaptation of this popular book series, it‘s safe to say that Peter Kavinsky stans are in full swing. I personally read this series about a year ago and was patiently waiting for the movie to finally air on Netflix. Although, naturally, I enjoyed the books over the movies. The series in general is fantastic, so if you fell in love with onscreen Peter K, I highly recommend you fall in love with the books

Read this book a few weeks ago and it was pretty great. The plot is intriguing and keeps you interested with twists and turns throughout the entire thing. I loved Viola and Todd‘s relationship because it seemed authentic and was genuinely fun to read about! Would recommend! #chaoswalking #theknifeofneverlettinggo #patrickness

A quirky and relatable story about a young man trying to navigate the awkward and unforgiving headache that is dating. Would recommend this book for anyone! #WeShouldHangOutSometime #JoshSundquist #januaryreads
