A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin
review

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I finally finished this book! A Clash of Kings was a bit confusing for me at times, trying to make sense of all the different armies and figuring out where everyone was. But overall, the next thrilling adventure in a series that I love!

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A very powerful debut! Angie Thomas tackles a very real, very emotional, very heartbreaking thing that unfortunately does happen in our society. And she does so beautifully. The characters were all wonderful and complex, the plot was emotional, and I do recommend this story in a heartbeat. There are two sides to every story and just because one of them doesn‘t personally affect you, doesn‘t mean it isn‘t still worth thinking about.

Rosie Colored Glasses | Brianna Wolfson

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Good lord, the feels! I really enjoyed this one. The characters were all endearing, the emotions were all real, and there was a twist that I probably should‘ve seen coming but didn‘t. Rosie Colored Glasses is definitely one that I recommend!

My new favorite thing: getting book mail! A few weeks ago I entered a giveaway over on Twitter, and my copy of The Hate U Give that I won arrived today! This book has been on my TBR list for quite a while and I‘ve heard lots of good things about it, so I‘m really looking forward to reading it! 🤗🤗🤗 #tbr

Mrs. Fletcher: A Novel | Tom Perrotta
Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A good enough book to check out from the library, but I don‘t feel a need to read this again, so I won‘t be hurrying out to buy my own copy. I liked some parts, but others seemed very unrealistic, and some actually made me a bit uncomfortable. Overall, Mrs. Fletcher was just very “meh” to me.

Shadow Run | AdriAnne Strickland, Michael Miller

Bailedbailed

⭐️⭐️ I tried with this book, I really did. But I was unable to finish it. I took a chance on a genre that I don‘t usually prefer, and the book did start off well. But eventually it got to the point where I found myself reading more so I could just finish the book and move on, not because I was actually enjoying the story. Life is too short to read books you‘re not totally interested in, so I‘m just going to give this one up and move on.

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I will never EVER forget this book! Ove was such a delightful character! I laughed out loud several times, and the ending actually made me cry. Ove reminded me so much of my Hubby, which added a wonderful personal emotional layer to the story for me. I love this book so much!

A List of Cages | Robin Roe
post image
Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I had high hopes for this story, and was left feeling rather underwhelmed. I didn‘t feel like there was a lot of world building or character development happening, and the plot seemed kind of weak to me. I‘m glad I checked A List of Cages our from the library, rather than spending money to buy my own copy. It wasn‘t “fantastic,” it wasn‘t “terrible,” it was just “okay.”

‪So damn cute! I didn‘t have high hopes for this story after feeling underwhelmed with Roomies, but Autoboyography came through! It‘s beautiful, emotional and heartfelt, and it really surprised me!‬

Roomies | Christina Lauren
Mehso-so

This story was cute, romantic, and fun. But for me, it was unfortunately missing that special “something.” It was “good,” not “great.” A good library find, but I don‘t think I‘ll be in a rush to buy my own copy.

Game of Thrones | George R R Martin
Pickpick

I‘ve actually read this book quite a few times at this point, and I love it more and more each time! ASOIAF is one of my most favorite series, even though I haven‘t yet read all the books. I think the world of Westeros is so well crafted, and I can‘t wait to see how the rest of the series plays out!
