2.Slated  by Terry Terri

What I disliked: This is a book that I would’ve enjoyed a lot more had I been younger,it’s definitely for a younger audience.

3.Find Her  by Lisa Gardner

Rating:3/5 stars

What I liked: It was an interesting plot, and I wanted to know how it was going to end

What I disliked: The content was  a little too much for me, it was a little too graphic for my taste.

4. Morning Star by Pierce Brown

My Rating:4/5 stars

What I liked: It was an epic conclusion and I really enjoyed every bit of it. There were so many twists and turns and lots of sad moments.

What I disliked:Again I just had a little bit of trouble getting it into, but that’s really a personal thing

5. The Sun is Also A Star  by Nicola Yoon * Korean-American and Jamaican Main Characters and Jamaican Author

(Review To Come)

What I liked:This book was beautiful and enrapturing and honestly I loved it to bits. It was such a pure book and I couldn’t recommend it enough

What I disliked:The insta-love was a little unrealistic, but it’s okay.

6. The Cruelty by Scott Bergstorm.

Goodreads

Review

Rating:2.5/5 stars

What I liked: It was mildly enjoyable and it was pretty easy to read.

What I  disliked:It wasn’t anything great, and I don’t think an author should claim that their book is the best thing when it’s not. Plus the character was super pretentious.

7. Fractured by Terry Terri

My Rating:4/5 stars

Goodreads

What I liked:As I said with the first book, it was very intriguing and quickly paced. It’s definitely a fun series.

What I disliked:The Mc made some annoyingly rash decisions.

8. Tales from Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brenman, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman.

My Rating:4/5 stars

Goodreads

What I liked:This was surprisingly really good! I think this may be one of my favorites of hers.  I loved Simon, and there  was some great flashbacks, and awesome Malec and Sizzy moments,and it was an overall a great book! Plus the ending was really heartbreaking.

What I disliked:  I would never feel comfortable giving Cassandra Clare a five stars just because I feel as though she doesn’t deserve it, but it was really good!

9. The Survival Kit by Donna  Freitas

My Rating:4/5 stars

Goodreads

What I liked: This was really just a great classic  contemporary, complete with a swoony love interest, great friends and an awesome family.Nothing special but still nonetheless great.

What I disliked: There was some second hand embarrassment moments as to be expected with books like these but it’s okay.

10. Beyond The Wild River by Sarah Maine

Goodreads

What I liked: This was an intriguing books set on a river in 1893. The setting was very unique as was the plot, and it was a very enjoyable read.

What I liked:It dragged at times, and it could’ve been longer.

  1. You had a really nice reading month!! I also really enjoyed The Sun Is Also a Star ❤
    And I'm interested in the Slated trilogy (not sure if it's a trilogy, tho??) – my best friend got the books and I was thinking about borrowing them, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy them haha
    I managed to read 4 books last month, which wasn't bad, but could have been better. 😛 Let's hope March is better!! Happy reading 😀
