April Wrap Up

Sooooo I didn’t QUITE stick to my TBR (when do I ever lol) BUT, I did read one of the books on my TBR. So let’s get on with the wrap up!

1.) Title: The book thief
     Author: Markus Zusak
    Rating: 5/5
    Review: I LOVE this book because it was so thought provoking and at times just plain painful! It stirred so many emotions within me! The only reason that it took me so long to finish the book was because of my reading slump (ughhh). So don’t wait any longer and pick up the book! P.S. I’m excited to read his other book the messenger, but I’m not sure how it will compare to this book!

2.) Title: Catch Me
     Author: Lisa Gardner
     Rating: 3.5/5
     Review: Honestly, this was a Walmart pick up because I needed some reading material but was low on cash. Despite that, I did quite enjoy this book. If it was for the (personal opinion) unnecessary swearing in this book, I would of given it a higher rating, but that is one of my bookish pet peeves ( hey I should make a separate post about that! Lol). Anyway, the characters were very intriguing and I just liked how the personal lives of the characters came into play. What I loved most was just how raw and real it really was and it just went to show me that the decisions that our families make do affect us in the future. Enjoyed it, but could of done without the swearing.

ANNNDD. ..that’s it! 😦 sorry guys this reading slump really hit me HARD. BUT I’m out of it! (I think) and am planning on starting a new book today, so hopefully the month of may will be a better reading month for me!:) What did you guys read this month?

March Wrap Up!!

So fellow followers,I’m back with my March wrap up! In the month of march i read a total of 4 books. The main reason for this is because I moved last month so that took up most of my free time! So all in all 4 books is pretty good. So now onto  the books I read!   

The Scorch Trials

  • Author: James Dashner
  • Format: Paperback
  • Rating: 3.5/5
  • Brief Review: I did enjoy this book, especially the loyalty that was shown. I felt that above all, Minho really did prove himself as a good and loyal friend.No wonder i love him so much! As for Thomas, he did develop and flesh out more, but not as much as Minho in my opinion.But ugh Newt!!!! I think this is the reason that i gave this installment 3.5 stars.I just couldn’t believe that happened to him! He was such a loving character! All in all, it was a good sequel 

The Death Cure

  • Author: James Dashner
  • Format:Paperback
  • Rating: 4/5
  • Brief Review: I seriously just loved the ending to this book, and i think the main reason for that was because WICKED finally admitted that they made a mistake by putting the kids through what they were put through. It was a bittersweet ending and all in all i think that it was a good ending to the trilogy.

The Kill Order

  • Author: James Dashner
  • Format:Paperback
  • Rating: 4/5
  • Brief Review: Even though most people didnt like this book, I thought that it was very well thought out and that it added a new viewpoint to the story. It really showed how WICKED messed everything up through the eyes of the cities and home. I really loved reading how others other than the candidates were negatively affected by the government. If you haven’t read this book,and are hesitant to, I urge you to pick it up!

Beautiful Darkness

  • Author: Kami Garcia
  • Format:Paperback
  • Rating:4/5
  • Brief Review: I saw this book at Goodwill for 6 dollars and couldn’t help myself.At first, I was hesitant to pick it up since i had read the first book a year ago. However,i found myself quickly catching on.With that being said, this book had a REALLY slow start that dragged on! Despite that,I continued with the book, and, interestingly enough it did pick up towards the middle and the ending really caught my interest. So im glad that i didn’t give upon this book. Poor Link! He just cant catch a break now can he? I am planning on continuing with this series!

Currently reading: The book thief. I’M LOVING IT. But sadly, I’m in a reading slump right now 😦
