Select ★★★★☆

4.5 stars

Publish date October 3rd

So once I got into this book it was like I couldn’t stop reading. Every time there was a break in my day I would pull out my phone so I could continue the story. Not only was this book interesting, it also had an interesting romance that was realistic. I will say that the beginning of this book is a little bit slow but once you get passed the 50-page mark it really picks up. Most of this review will be spoiler free but the last paragraph will have spoilers (but I will make it obvious).

Norse Mythology ★★★★☆

4 stars

I bought this book with the intention of reading it slowly and in between other books but once I started it I decided that I needed to read it all. The book itself isn’t long so I read it in three days because I read it only at night but I’m sure this is the type of book that you can read in one day.

I’d also like to say sorry for not posting on Thursday like I normally do. I have my ap environmental exam on May 1st so I’ve spend a large majority of my time studying for that. I will have a review up on Tuesday but from then on I think most of my posts will be book tags and they probably will be shorter. My last exam will be on May 10th and so after that, I will definitely have time to write some more reviews! This, of course, is all what I think is going to happen and maybe I’ll write a review before my final exam but I thought I would at least tell everyone.

Ensnared ★★★☆☆

3 stars

Oh my gosh this book was so cute, especially the ending. I wasn’t really that into the book in the beginning but once certain things started happening I just couldn’t stop reading. This was a very cute and fast read and that’s the only reason I’m giving it 3 stars. There was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn’t mind-blowing or anything. It was a cute contemporary read, plain and simple. This book comes out December 18th and I’m excited to see it in the bookstore.

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life ★★★★☆

4 stars

I’m not entirely sure where to start this review. Maybe I should start by saying that I loved reading Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, which the man who wrote this book also wrote. Benjamin Alire Sáenz has a whimsical way of writing and I love reading any of his books. This book wasn’t really an exception but it didn’t leave me wanting to read more. I understand that this book follows a family and it is basically a record of their lives but it just wasn’t as gripping as Aristotle and Dante. I never thought about putting the book aside and throwing it into my DNF pile, so at least there’s that.

February Book Haul!

What? A post on Monday? Yeah, I figured that I would post on Monday so that my scheduled posts wouldn’t be moved around. So it’s almost the last day of February and I’ve never done a monthly book haul so I figured I would do one now. These are either books I bought, E-books I received for review or physical books that I received for review. I figured I would do a book haul for the month instead of a wrap up this month and maybe I’ll do a wrap-up for March.

The Sun Is Also a Star ★★★★★

5 stars 

Almost any book that makes me cry gets 5 stars and this book was no exception. Normally I hate to give books a full 5 stars because there is almost always something that can be improved, but this book was just plain amazing. I read it for three hours straight until 1 am and I am just so happy that I didn’t finish the book during school. This book was so highly recommended by just about everyone that I had to give it a chance and I am so so happy that I finally picked up my own copy because wow this book. Now I am happily joining the masses when I say, “read this book, you’ll regret it if you don’t.”
