Hello and happy Tuesday!
Its the last one! We’ve completed the alphabet! I have to admit it was a lot harder at times then I was expecting but I’ve had fun. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm.
Undead Girl Gang by Lily Alderson
This sounded super promising to me: a teenager uses her knowledge of amateur witchcraft to bring back her best friend from the dead but accidently brings back two mean girls as well.
This book let me down a whole lot. This was a solid three stars for the majority of the book but the ending was just weird and random and not enjoyable dropping it two a two star and leaving me very sad.
Vicious by Victoria Schwab
If I remember correctly, which I might not because I have a terrible memory, I asked for this for my birthday and will hopefully be getting my hands on this next week.
Schwab is an amazing writer, an icon in the YA community and I’m dying to read more from her.
We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson // When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
I loved We Are The Ants. It’s probably not for everyone because it is a bit … odd and does handle some pretty heavy subject matters but I loved this novel. Basically this book follows Henry who has to decide whether or not the world is worth saving. Its a very vague description I know. I really want a physical copy of this book and also to read more books by Hutchinson.
As I’m writing this (Sunday) I’m currently reading When Dimple Met Rishi and I’m really enjoy it so far although I am only 15% of the way through. Not much has happened yet but I’m really loving both Dimple and Rishi, already they both have such distinctive personalities and I’m looking forward to reading more.
Round of applause to anyone who found a book beginning with X because I searched high and low and found zilch 🙂
You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn // You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardener.
I received an ARC of You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn and loved it so much more then I was ever expecting. It follows Annie, America’s sweetheart and Clay, America’s bad boy who’s forced to go on tour with Annie or be dropped from his record label. This is a super sweet romance with a lot of layers and I really want to re-read it.
You’re Welcome, Universe was a very enjoyable read following a deaf girl with a love for art and more specifically graffiti. I loved how the main character was flawed because it was an accurate representation of teenagers. We’re all a mess an this represents that. Highly recommend this book.
Zenith by Lindsay Cummings & Sasha Alsberg
I’m still pretty half and half on whether or not I want to read this book. I haven’t heard the best reviews and I don’t even like science-fiction but on the other hand I want to see what all the fuss is about. I’m a fan of complaining so I wouldn’t mind reading this just to complain. Is that bad?
And there we go. All done and dusted. I’ve literally never sung the alphabet so many times as I have this past month.
Thank you for reading 🙂
