The Hating Game – A Hilariously Good Read

★★


25883848Let me just start by saying that this book was soooo good!

I only heard of this book a few days ago and decided that I had to read it. I went to the library and checked out, and me being me, I began reading it at around midnight on a Monday. Well, technically, I think it was already Tuesday, but moving on. The point is, I didn’t go to sleep until like 5 AM because I simply had to finish this novel!

That there, my friends, is dedication. That is what I called being hooked to a good book.

To Not To Read Tag!!

Hello, hello! I have been tagged! Thank you so much to the Orangutan Librarian for tagging me in this super fun tag about DFN’d books. Also, go check out their blog cause it’s amazing, and filled with awesome things like this!

Anyway, this tag is one that I am super happy to do because there is nothing I like more than talking about things I don’t like. And there are a lot of books I don’t like. A lot of which I have had to leave half way through for fear that the boredom would kill me.

So, without further ado, let’s get on with this thing!

Flame in the Mist – A Review

 

★★


23308087This book was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and frankly, I was left a little disappointed by it.

The book wasn’t bad. It was a pretty solid read, actually. I just expected more.

A few years ago I read Ahdieh’s The Wrath & The Dawn, and I loved it. I flew through that novel in one sitting and gave it five brilliant stars. Then I read the sequel, The Rose & The Dagger, and I was left utterly unimpressed. I felt that it was lacking all the things I had come to expect from Ahdieh. I think that’s what happened with Flame in the Mist.

The Fallen World – Series Review

The Fallen World Trilogy by Laura Thalassa

And there I went again, doing regrettable things. Earlier this week I posted my Captive Prince series review. And, let’s just say that I didn’t like that series. And then, because I am me, I read this series. And did I stop after I realized I didn’t like book one? Nope. Of course not. I wouldn’t be me if I had. So, I went and finished the whole darn thing, skimming and boring myself half to death.

The Hate U Give – Little Infants F***s Everybody (T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E.)

★★

(4.5/5)


32313894“The truth casts a shadow over the kitchen—people like us in situations like this become hashtags, but they rarely get justice. I think we all wait for that one time though, that one time when it ends right.
Maybe this can be it.”

And to think, I almost didn’t read this book.

I kept seeing this book around Goodreads and here on WordPress. Everyone was talking about it and honestly, I was avoiding this book like the plague. Why? Because I don’t really like books like these, and before you get mad, let me explain.

Caraval – A Very Late Review

★★

(2.5 / 5)


27883214I read this book a few months ago for a buddy read/ read along with Brookie over @Brookie Cowles. Then, I put it on hold because after finishing it, I honestly had no idea how I was supposed to feel about it.

Had I liked it? How much had I liked it? What hadn’t I actually liked about it? Was I lying to myself about liking it because of all the hype? What made me not like it? Are the characters really that dumb? Was the plot really that good? Should I just ignore this and go read The Night Circus?

All of these were questions running through my head. And now, after two months, I have decided that the time for reviewing this book has come.

It Had to Be You – Blog Tour Stop!

★★

(3.5/5)


34530550

James Parson has a problem. His military dad is going to yank him out of his expensive boarding school if James doesn’t prove he’s no longer hooking up, pulling pranks, and charming his way out of consequences. What better way to show he’s now responsible than becoming the committed boyfriend of a U.S. diplomat’s daughter?

Level-headed, book-smart Edelweiss may have traveled the world thanks to her dad’s job, but when it comes to friends and boys, she knows exactly nothing. Newly enrolled in boarding school, Edel is now on a mission to learn it all. James says he’ll help her experience the ultimate high school life—if she’ll be his fake girlfriend. And fake is perfect, because he’s exactly the kind of player she’d never date.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean – The Third Book We Didn’t Need

★★


30312860I wanted to love this. I needed to love this. And I didn’t, and that makes me sad.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was one of the cutest novels I have read. I loved every page of it. When I heard that it was going to have a sequel, P.s. I Still Love You, I was ecstatic. I could not wait to read it until I did and was super disappointed. Still, I had faith and hoped for this last books, and was yet again wanting more than was delivered.

I don’t really know what it is about these books that I don’t like. I just couldn’t get into this or P.s. I Still Love You, as much as I did the first one. I wasn’t as invested in their love story or their struggles. If I’m honest, I had to skim over some parts that just seemed boring to me. It felt like nothing substantial happened in this novel.

I’m Back!

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been posting anything in the past two or so weeks. And if you hadn’t noticed, well, I guess now you know.

Anyway, the reason for that is that I have been taking finals! Lots of them. And writing literally all the essays! So, since I actually do have at least a small sense of priority, I decided to focus on school instead of reading or blogging for two weeks. But…I am officially done with finals as of this very moment so, yay! I’m back!

So I am sorry if anyone tagged me for anything during this time, or something. Please remind me because I have not been on WordPress and have looked at zero blogs. Also, if you commented on something I will try to reply to everyone either today or tomorrow so please be patient.

Anyway, that’s about all I got for this PSA. Thank you all!
