More interesting than the first I think. The books are too short in my opinion but I also understand that they are targeted for a you get audience than me 😂😂

The Dating Plan | Sara Desai

An average love story. Some plot points were simply glazed over too quickly and didn‘t have enough reaction for the depth that they required.

I am disappointed really. The first two books in this series are amazing. The first still being my favorite. Of course Pip has trauma. I recognize that. But, Pip turned into someone completely different and I feel as if her decision to kill was one just to extend the story. I wasn‘t really a fan of the ending either. Anyways, I still whole heartedly recommend the first two books, just beware that this one is very very different.

KristiAhlers I‘ve started this one and I agree with you she‘s not the same character and of course she wouldn‘t be with all she‘s been through but the direction she‘s going doesn‘t resonate with me. In fact she‘s becoming a little bratty. Maybe this will be explained the further I get 7mo

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover does a wonderful job of giving an inside look to an abusive relationship and pointing out how unfair it is for the general public to make assumptions about people who go back to their abusers.

I really don‘t have a review for this one yet. A lot of times I felt like large parts of the plot went too fast and other parts of the book dragged. Was there very interesting parts? Yes. But I found myself reading just so I could finish and move on to another book

8/10 first book of 2022!!! Honestly, it took me a second to get into. But, i really did enjoy it by the end. Beautiful and heartbreaking and somehow heart mending as well.

9/10 I really loved the full circle way this book ended. I really like the progression of the characters and the way the author acknowledges how cheesy the trope is in her writing. Makes it even better

8/10 I get wanting a series to continue and honestly it was interesting. I did have to take points away though for the awkwardness of just having a whole brand new setting on the 4th book. Overall not bad, I wish David was in it more. Compared to the others it did feel a tad rushed.

The Hand on the Wall | Maureen Johnson

9/10 my only complaint is that the flashbacks always occur at the best parts of the book, but it‘s okay because the flashbacks usually get pretty intense too. I think this was my favorite of them all despite David being an asshole until he wasn‘t.

4/10 I adore the selection series and this one..it‘s just not the same. SO fast paced just to kill everyone off in a paragraph??? Weird. I literally almost stopped reading. Weird relationships w characters, nothing felt final? It all felt just half done. And that made me SO sad because I really wanted this to live up to the selection series. :(

10/10 i loved this series. I am genuinely so sad that I‘m done. But also Remus and Tonks and Fred deserved better. 😭 And why wasn‘t one of Harry‘s kids named after lupin. Why. Anyways, I‘m sure I‘ll read all of these again. Off to the movies now.

This one is SO long. Do I think it dragged sometimes…maybe a little. Also can we talk about J. K. Rowling‘s sudden obsession with the word “groped”??? Towards the end I just kept seeing it! Sometimes in two sentences in a row. 😂 Anyways, I‘m in love with the characters way too much to ever judge these stories too harshly. 9/10

The Last House Guest | Megan Miranda

6/10 The first half of the book is just not gripping, the suspense gets better yet I feel like character development really lacks in a lot of characters. Not the worst thriller I‘ve ever read but definitely not the best.

The Last House Guest | Megan Miranda

Moving into college has totally hurt my motivation to read. Everything is new and overwhelming, but today on a dark Sunday, I am getting back in my groove. It took me a second to get into it, but I‘m excited for classes to start and to go back to my comfort hobby which is reading. Everything‘s going to be okay.

?/10 this book was SO hyped and I feel a little dissatisfied? Idk it feels like a cop out with the supernatural element but it made me cry nevertheless. Still heartbreaking, but I just also feel like they built up so much suspension to the fire and there are holes? It just speeds by I feel like. It‘s hard to explain. I also feel like the author relies to much on the whole “we are different people in the summer” to not explain the characters.

mschenk Then again as I‘m thinking about it, the whole we don‘t know anything ab eachother outside of this could‘ve been because they are literally dead haha. But I‘m just conflicted w this one. 13mo
magyklyXdelish The thing I don‘t understand is why they couldn‘t just douse the house and when they are safely outside then throw in a match? That part seemed weird. But I still have it a 5 🙈 8mo

8/10 It took a second to get into not gonna lie. I hated the foreshadowing of the phrase “little did I know it would be our last festival.” Unnecessary. Also hated the phrase “I held onto her braid like a lifeline.” What? I just imagine him pulling her head back and it‘s not as romantic as I think the author wanted LOL. Overall super heartwarming and all I can say is THANK GOD it didn‘t end the way I expected.

9/10 Perfect final line. While not very happy, a perfect ending. It wasn‘t the most crazy mystery I‘ve ever read but regardless it was a really tender and good story.

4/10 I found myself frustrated with relationships in the book. I hate that it took so long to figure out Darth Vader when it was very obvious. Our main character got happiness/closure for half a page? I think the book was just too young for me. Probably a better read for a preteen. Not bad by any means just not my cup of tea.

6/10 A weird parent trap? I didn‘t hate the storylines of the girls but a lot of it was just weird? The grandparent stuff felt forced. Some dialogue was skipped over. Not a horrible book. Could‘ve been like 50 pages shorter.

Ringer | Lauren Oliver

9/10 There are some plot holes that I feel are overlooked just because the story is kept short. I feel like both halves could‘ve been longer than 250 ish pages each. I really loved Gemma the entire time but it took much longer to warm up to Lyra. Maybe that‘s the point but I don‘t like that I found myself only wanting to hear Lyras point of view.

Replica | Lauren Oliver

8/10 It took me awhile to get into it. I credit that to complex names and confusing side characters. But I ended up really loving the main characters. I didn‘t like certain holes in the plot line but as soon as I read the second side of the story it comes together totally. Both relationships are very quick and cliche...but trauma bonds right? Can‘t wait to read the sequel.

9/10 -I guessed the plot from the beginning but I was swayed otherwise during the story. I did not see it coming that Shelby was deaf. I thought I was gonna hate the Dreaming, but it turned out to be a super cool alternative universe? I liked that the story didn‘t go the way I expected. I was super into it by the end but it can be kind of a slow start especially with the dreaming stuff but that‘s my only complaint really.

10/10 -I loved it. Can‘t believe I saved it for last because I thought it would be cheesy. It was real and heartbreaking and lovely and beautiful at the same time. Also I may be biased because my boyfriend is a tennis boy but I loved it.

GondorGirl I didn't expect it to be as deep and heartfelt as it was. This book was a surprise. 🧡 1y

6/10 -I like what the author was trying to do with stereotypes in racially diverse families. I also appreciate the mental health awareness, I just feel like the overall structure was sometimes hard to follow. It was hard to tell how much time passed. I feel like many characters were underdeveloped. Not a bad storyline, but could use some better organization.
