Started to lose track of what I was reading in February and March! I believe everything below should cover it, bringing the grand total so far up to 13.
Beautiful Chaos – Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Beautiful Redemption – Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
I had started this series awhile back and never got around to finishing it, so I picked up the last two books so I could get a couple of quick reads in for this challenge. It wasn’t the best series I’ve ever read, but I enjoyed it and they were indeed quick reads.
The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
Everything you have heard about this book is true. It is phenomenal. Yes, it’s sad, but it’s so much more than just a sad story. Green captures teenage romance and that feeling of first love so well. His characters are interesting and complex and strong. I’ve added his other books to my list. My barre studio just started a book club (it’s really the best barre studio ever you guys) and this is the first book we are reading. So pumped.
Crazy Good – Rachel Robinson
This was sent to me from the author as an advance reader copy. Ladies, if you are looking for a steamy romance novel, this is it.
Orphan Train – Christina Baker Kline
This one was SO good. The story switches back and forth from present-day to around the time of the Great Depression. I haven’t read many stories that take place during the Great Depression, so this was particularly interesting to me. The bits about the actual orphan trains were particularly interesting. I’d highly recommend.
We Were Liars – E. Lockhart
This was another advance reader’s copy (if you sign up to get Publisher’s Weekly emails sometimes they send offers for ARCs, totally worth it). I’d never read anything by this author before, but the synopsis sounded intriguing. I read it really quickly, which is always a good sign, and the ending is still sticking with me, which is also a good sign.
