Wayward Son | Rainbow Rowell

Devoured this one in two sittings and I loved every second of it. Rainbow Rowell never disappoints, even when she‘s throwing out plot twists and angst. 🙈😊 Now I‘m just going to sit here and cross my fingers for a book three. Something along the lines of “There‘ll be Peace When You Are Done” 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

I love love LOVED this duology with a burning flaming passion (even when it RIPPED MY HEART OUT OF MY CHEST AND OBLITERATED IT). Ahem. Anyway, I‘m off to read more of the Grishaverse now 🤗

chaoticgoodhufflepuff Well, I‘ve got something to look forward to them. 😂😂 3mo

The Rest of the Story | Sarah Dessen
post image
Pickpick

I started this book yesterday, and now that I‘ve finished it, I can safely say that Sarah Dessen just gets better and better. This book gave me every emotion imaginable—I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I threw the book at my couch, and then I cried again. Emma Saylor‘s story grabbed hold of my heart and refused to let go, and with characters like Roo, Bailey, Trinity, Mimi, and so many others, I know I‘ll be screaming about this book for a WHILE.

I don‘t read a lot of graphic novels, but this ARC caught my attention and I‘m soooooo glad I read it. It‘s a wonderful spin on a great character, with some fun appearances from other classic Batman characters. Throw in some beautifully done commentary on societal structures and other real-world issues, and I‘m giving this one a solid 10/10.

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOWWWWWW.
How have I been sleeping on this series for so long????? Book two was even better than the first and I am absolutely itching to get my hands on book three. Not sure when I‘ll get a chance to go to the library though, so in the meantime I‘ll just scream about how much I flipping love Captain Chaol Westfall to anyone who will listen 😊

Last completed book of 2018 for me, and this one was an absolute gem. Nicholas Carter is the light of my life, and Alexandra Bracken‘s writing just gets better and better. Can‘t wait to get my hands on a copy of Wayfarer!!!

I cannot get over how freaking much I LOVED this book. Cardan and Jude and their banter completely killed me and I loved every second of it. Please excuse me while I sit here and impatiently wait for book two!!!

OH. MY. GOD. I honestly feel like those last fifty pages or so just attacked me. But also apparently I‘m ready for more because I am so going to pick up a copy of book two ASAP. 🙈📚

I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE THAT ENDING.
All things considered this one was an amazing roller coaster and I am seriously hyped for the movie. Liam Michael Stewart is the best and I love him. I‘m going to read book two right now so we can fix that ending, though. 🙈🙈🙈🙈
(But actually I couldn‘t put this one down, it was THAT GOOD!!!)

This one is going to haunt me forever, isn‘t it??? Such an amazing read, I‘m legitimately sorry to be finished with it. That being said, I was way more satisfied with the ending than I thought I‘d be. Also, I still love Adam Parrish.

I haven‘t fallen in love with a series like this in AGES. Everything from the characters to the plot to the writing is FLAWLESS. And the damned murder squash song gets me EVERY. DAMN. TIME. 😂😂😂😂😂

What an amazing ride. Rufus and Mateo‘s story immediately grabbed me and never let me go, and I love, love, loved the stories of other characters that intertwined so beautifully with theirs. Definitely recommend 👌🏻📚❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

So happy to be rereading my very battered copy of my favorite Harry Potter book! It's literally being held together by scotch tape and it's definitely seen better days, but this book still makes me laugh hysterically just like it did the very first time I read it. 😊📚💕⚡️

Carry On | Rainbow Rowell

Simon Snow. Penelope Bunce. Tyrannus Basilton Grimm-Pitch. I'll never forget these characters. As per usual, Rainbow Rowell's story was captivating but this time around, even more so than usual, this story was magical. I'm sorry to be finished with this one, but at the same time I don't think I'll ever truly be finished with it or with these unforgettable characters. #carryon #rainbowrowell #simonsnow #fangirl

Carry On | Rainbow Rowell

Update: if I stop reading, I think my head will explode or something. Simon and Baz have me completely engrossed in their story. I knew I cared more about their storyline when reading Fangirl, but now that I have an entire book dedicated to them I'm even more engrossed than I was then. It's as if their story IS magic. And it's amazing ✨💕 #carryon #rainbowrowell #fangirl

FINISHED! This book is absolutely amazing, whether you love Shakespeare half as much as I do or simply enjoy a book filled with witty banter between the couple who profess to loathe each other but everyone knows they're actually madly in love. Absolutely a must read. I'm definitely excited to see how the rest of the TV show handles these characters and THOSE INSANE PLOT TWISTS!!!! 💕📚#Shakespeare #stillstarcrossed #melindataub #romeoandjuliet
