June Wrap Up!
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
3.8/5 (YA fantasy)I Started this book back in May and really struggled to get through the first 2/3 of it. It was beautiful after that and totally worth it! -full review available on this blog-
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
5/5 Illuminae (YA sci-fi) will most certainly be on my list as one of the best books read this year. I cannot recommend it enough. It started off very light hearted, easy and fun to read, But all of sudden it become one of the most intense reads I've ever come across. It is a brilliant sci-fi book! -full review available on this blog-
The Glass Arrow by Kristin Simmons
3/5 (YA dystopia) This book was an easy read. A little slow to start but all in all it kept a good pace. The plot is promising. Women are property kept for breeding and the main character wants to escape that fate. It doesn't deliver in all ways, but it was not a bad read. -full review available on this blog-
Windfall by Jennifer Smith
4.7/5 (YA contemporary romance) Adorable! Super cute. It explores the complexity in friendships and families and figuring out where you belong. It will be emotional for some readers, it was to me... -full review available on this blog-
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
5/5 (YA sci-fi) Freaking Amazing! And there was I thinking Illuminae was good... this was better! A bit uncomfortably unrealistic at one point, but not enough to detract from its brilliance!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
2/5 (realistic fiction) I was disappointed. Too long to explain so if you don't mind, please just go and read my full review!
Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
5/5 (YA contemporary romance) This book was adorable! I loved everything about it. The characters, the story, the location, world building... everything! It was the sweetest romance book I've read in quite sometime! -full review available on this blog-
