Guys I’m stressed. There’s a thousand bars in my town and yet everyone from my school goes to the one right opposite my house. They can see inside my living room window 😂. I feel like going out on my balcony and telling them to go find some other place to serve their underage ass.
Instead of doing that I’m going to channel my anxiety into talking all about the best books I read this spring.
In the last three months I have read 30 books. 30!!! I’m shocked too. And yet even though I’ve read so much my top 5 are pretty clear.
The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
This was by no means the best book in the world and I originally gave it 3 stars but I genuinly couldn’t put it down. I read this in one day it was just that addictive.
This book is all about a town haunted by a monster with four founding families charged to protect the town and it’s very reminiscent of old school 2010 teen shows but with more bisexual characters then any of those series.
I’m currently reading the sequel Deck of Omens and … let’s just say it’s not as addictive as the first. I’ve been reading it for 3 days and I’m only 30% in but I’m hoping it picks up soon.
More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn
I’m not going to talk too much about this book because I’ve not shut up about it since I read it back in March. This was meant to come out a few months ago but the publication date got pushed back because of the current world wide pandemic.
More Than Maybe follows Luke whose dad was a famous punk rocker who doesn’t understand why Luke prefers behind the scene song writing, and Vada who wants to be a go into musical journalism and they are in love. With each other. They’ve been pining for years except the other doesn’t know it.
I loved this book with my whole heart and I can’t wait for it to come out so I can share my full review which I wrote at 1am after finishing. (I think its the best review I’ve ever written)
Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman
If you’ve been living under a rock and somehow haven’t heard about this graphic novel series they follow Charlie Spring and Nick Nelson and is simultaneously extremely cute and adorable but also deals with some pretty serious topics.
These graphic novels just warm my heart. They’re a great quick read which I personally save for when I’m feeling overwhelmed and anxious because they never fail to cheer me up.
I gotta say though. I’ve read Solitaire. I know where the plot of this is heading and I’m scared.
Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett
This was one of two Bennett books I’ve read recently and this was definitely my favourite.
This book follows Bailey, a classic movie fanatic who moves to the same coastal town where the boy she’s been talking to online lives and its all about her trying to find who this boy is and juggle her summer job and her irritating but attractive co-worker Porter.
I had so much fun reading this. It was entertaining and romantic and everything I needed at the time. I highly recommend reading this and I think it’s perfect for summer!
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
I’m pretty sure when this series was first announced I said to myself that I wasn’t going to read it because I wasn’t really interested … and then even when it was released a couple of months ago and I was interested I said to myself I was in no rush to read it … then I bought it on sale and read it in 2 days.
This of course follows the children of The Infernal Devices characters and I really loved the characters in this more then I thought I was going to. I would lay down my life for The Merry Thieves, I want to best friends with Lucie Herondale, the Carstairs siblings are everything and I’m very intrigued about both Blackthorns.
Like I said I read this 592 page beast in two days. I could not put it down and I’ve since not stopped thinking about it. I have so many theories buzzing around in my brain and I can’t wait for the sequel.
So there we go, those are the best books I read this spring. I’d love to know what your recent favourites have been! Thanks for reading and stay safe!!!
