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.

Rebel Belle Series ★★★☆☆

Rebel Belle: 4 stars 

Miss Mayhem: 3.5 stars

Lady Renegades: 3.5 stars

I’m not going to include the Goodreads summary for all 3 books because that would make this review ridiculously long. I know this review isn’t as long as my others but I really wanted to post this review because I enjoyed this trilogy.

These Vicious Masks (These Vicious Masks #1) ★★★★☆

3.5 stars

I spent almost an entire day reading These Vicious Masks and I really did enjoy the story. I would give it 4 overall stars but to me, it just doesn’t seem like a 4 star book. I admit to it grabbing my attention in certain parts but in others I was just skim reading and I absolutely hate skim reading. I try hard to keep myself from skim reading but some parts of this book were so boring I couldn’t help it. Overall though this book is probably one I won’t read again but I don’t regret reading it.

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) ★★★★☆

4.5 stars

Okay I absolutely adored this book (and the other 2 books in the series). I almost cried, and not a lot of books make me cry. Well if they do it’s only because of some silly romance story..but those are my favorite. I absolutely love Stephanie Perkins books and I’ll probably end up reading Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door again soon because I just love cute romance books.

Goodreads Summary: 

Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

Review: 

I just finished reading this book, I haven’t been able to put it down throughout the day and so I ended up getting yelled at multiple times during school for not paying attention. This book was just that good and I ended up getting so lost in the story that I didn’t even realize that I was sitting in history. I wasn’t even able to eat my freshly ordered pizza cause of this book, and that’s saying a lot.

Plus One ★★★★☆

This book was so good I’m honestly so upset that there isn’t going to be a sequel.  I read this book over the course of two days and that is only because I had so much work to catch up on. This book sucked me in though, ended up keeping me awake till 2am on a weekday.

Goodreads Summary:

A dying wish. A family divided. A love that defies the law.

Sol Le Coeur is a Smudge–a night dweller in an America rigidly divided between people who wake, live, and work during the hours of darkness and those known as Rays, who live and work during daylight. Impulsive, passionate, and brave, Sol concocts a plan to kidnap her newborn niece–a Ray–in order to bring the baby to visit her dying grandfather. Sol’s violation of the day/night curfew is already a serious crime, but when her kidnap attempt goes awry, she stumbles on a government conspiracy to manipulate the Smudge population. Sol escapes the authorities with an unexpected ally: a Ray who gets in her way, a boy she might have hated if fate hadn’t forced them on the run together–a boy the world now tells her she can’t love.

Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day/night divide, Elizabeth Fama’s Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure story.

Review:

I loved the plot of this book and the way the topic of having the day/night curfews was conveyed. It could have been a lot more confusing then it ended up being, and for that I am grateful. The author created complex characters that felt real, they reacted to situations like 18 year olds would. I’ve read multiple books where the characters either fell flat, or they didn’t seem like real people because of how they would react/respond to situations they were put in.
