Dreamology ★★★★☆

3.5 stars

THIS BOOK IS ADORABLE!! When I’m in the mood for it, I absolutely love mushy romantic stories and this was just that! Of course, everyone knows how it’s going to end but I just love all the cute moments and everything about the story. This is exactly the type of book you read if you’re in a book slump because it’s only 300 pages and you just get swept away in the unrealness of the love story

Goodreads Summary:

For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together, they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. Because he doesn’t exist.

But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. Real Max is nothing like Dream Max. He’s stubborn and complicated. And he has a whole life Alice isn’t a part of. Getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.

Alarmingly, when their dreams start to bleed into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?

My Review: 

I read this book in a day and every time I put it down I kept finding myself thinking about it because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. While the ending might have been predictable, the events leading up to it weren’t. Of course, the book follows a basic romance book outline but with the added detail of the book having dream melding in it made it so much more interesting.

I really enjoyed reading about Alice and overall she was an okay character that handled most situations alright. For a junior in high school, some of the things she does can be seen as too childish but I never held any of that against her.

The only thing I didn’t like about this book was the relationship between Alice and her mother. I know it was essential to the plot because it gave Alice the nightmares but it just really hurt me to see how her mother never talked to her. I know that not all mothers have the best motherly instincts and the character wasn’t put there for anyone to love but I just wanted better for Alice. This isn’t really a negative about the book, it definitely wasn’t something that made the star rating change, it was just something I wanted to mention.

I also want to say, the 3.5 star rating isn’t because I didn’t love the book. Because I did. I just feel like the book isn’t something any more than four stars, which is why when it comes to a full star rating it’s got 4 big ones. I just feel like this book was more than three stars because it was exactly what it set out to be with a little extra something thrown in there.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is in a reading slump or just wants a cute, quick, contemporary read. I can definitely see myself picking this book back up when I find myself becoming less interested in reading.

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.”

Heartless ★★★★☆

4 stars

Honestly, I loved this book and its spin on the Alice and Wonderland universe. It was such a great read and it was definitely worth staying up till 3 am to finish. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves Alice in Wonderland or is even just a good book about a villain’s backstory.

The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire #1) ★★★★☆

3.5 stars

This book was so difficult to read in the beginning, I just couldn’t get into it enough to actually want to read it. I had to stop reading after about 80 or so pages and pick up another book because this book wasn’t doing anything for me in the reading department. I thought I was in a reading slump but it turned out to just be this book. It started to pick up about 125ish pages in and after the 15o page mark it became a really good book.

Love & Gelato ★★★☆☆

3.5 stars 

I only ended up getting this book from the library because I couldn’t get into the book I was currently reading. This book was an unexpected read for this month and I don’t really regret it. I’m always a sucker for a good romance book and this one was no exception, I loved it. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting and honestly that was a nice surprise.

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1) ★★★★★

5 stars

Omg wow, this book. After I finished this book I was overwhelmed with emotions because Cassandra Clare broke my heart, fixed it and then broke it again. I’m already waiting for the release of Lord of Shadows because I just want to keep reading about shadowhunters. I didn’t actually start reading Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy till after I finished Lady Midnight so at least I still have something shadowhunter related to read.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) ★★★★★

I could not put this book down. I fell so in love with this book I’ve thought of not much else for 2 days. I was so worried that the book would end with a cliffhanger and thank god it hadn’t or else I would probably be losing my mind right about now. The next book comes out on May 3rd and I’m so excited to continue reading about Feyre and the entire faerie world.
