Was a good book throughout.
This was a best friends to lovers which is one of my favourite tropes so already I liked it. An amazing story about finding and accepting yourself

I believe I have found one of my new comfort books. The beginning was slow and I didn‘t like the main characters. But they started to grow on me

This was such an amazing book. The writing and the characters *dies of joy*
The only thing I didn‘t like was that the romance took a total of 2 chapters and than Kapoof! Never to be seen again.

Sapphic adventure story. I loved this book. There were points where the story went really quick but then there were parts where the story dragged. All in all it was an amazing story. I love Goose with my whole heart

All of Zapata‘s book are an Instant five stars.
I loved it from the beginning and I kept on loving it till the ending sentence. The romance was amazing and I loved both of the main characters with all my heart.
I figured out that there was a book about one of the characters in this book and I already ordered it and am waiting expectingly.

Such a cool premise.
Hockey player and figure skater hook up once and there entire world goes haywire.
My favourite line in this book is 100%
“Nathan Hawkins is a man who was most definitely written by a woman”
Yes that line resides somewhere in the book.

This was extraordinary.
The beginning was slow and I got to the point where I asked myself if I wanted to finish.
Im so glad I pushed through the sludge at the beginning.
It was a book that makes you feel honored you got to read it.
Very excited to read book two

I truly don‘t know what to say.
Maas has a lot of fans all over the globe but I don‘t think I will be one of them.
Was the story/plot a good one? Yes.
Was the writing amazing? Can‘t say one way or another.
Will I read the rest of the books? Maybe.
Don‘t know if I enjoyed it enough to finish the series. I also may or may not have spoiled what Celaena does to Chaol in later books and I am not happy.
Did you like these books? Should I continue?

Im not sure what I think.
The story line/plot itself wasn‘t bad but it needed more then it was given. The writing wasn‘t terrible but was definitely not perfect and there was some plot gaps and cringe spots.
Not saying the story wasn‘t bad, if your a fan of We Hunt The Flame give this a try.

Probably one of my favourite comics.
Such an interesting adventure and made me think about how people feel when there different ethnicities then where they live. The characters all had their own struggles and worked through them with the help of the people that they love. The baba made my heart melt.

This was an… interesting book.
The katie‘s writing style is 👌🏼 and the story line was Original and amazing. But the idea wasn‘t executed well. It‘s pretty fast paste and got me through a reading slump but that‘s the only good thing about it.

Short, cute, clean YA romance.
I read this book in like 3 hours so when I say short I mean SHORT. It was a typical YA fake dating. It was cute at some parts and cringy at others. The characters did grow throughout the book though

I loved this book!
It didn‘t focus solely on the romance (though that was AMAZING) but it showed the girls growing up mentally and changing for the good.
I will definitely read again

This book was absolutely amazing. I learnt a lot about the life of a gymnast and the struggles that people go through to get to the Olympics. This book deals with a lot of hard subjects but it deals with it subtly. One of my favourite books because of this. 🩱❤️

Oh my gosh. This book. Uphills. Downhills. Love. Hate. I love it. I love this book so much.
As the cover says, it‘s a contemporary little women retelling. There were I few cringe spots but the characters felt so real. Real struggles. Real problems. I loved it

OH MY GOD!! WHAT DID I JUST READ?!??
That was so freaking good. I think I have a new favourite. The characters were SO loveable and I felt all the emotions in this book. I connected with Alex more than I will ever admit and rooted for the relationship since sentence one. 5⭐️ Extra points for it being gay🌈✨

Winter | Marissa Meyer

Finished Winter by Marissa Meyer!! LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Definitely my favourite out of the lunar chronicles. Winter was amazing and I loved how her character was written. Kai and Cinders story progressed so much and cant wait to see how it finishes. Thorne and Cress gave me life. I loved their story with all my heart. Wolf and Scarlets story was PERFECTION. Wolf is such a precious character and Scarlet balances out the sweetness with (continued)

OliviaV (Continuation) her quick mouth. Jacin was amazing! I love him so much and ship him and winter SO HARD. 5⭐️. Cant wait to read the Final book of this series. Started Finale by Stephanie Garber. 6mo

Such a good book. Took a little bit to read because of stuff unrelated. Loved Thorne in this one. Cress was also amazing and was badass in her own kinda way. But like ONE KISS?? THATS IT? Can‘t wait to see how the love story progresses in the next one. Cinder was amazing as always and loved her chapters. Wolf gave me heart problems when he lost his alpha. Absolutely loved this one❤️. 4⭐️

Started my Journey into the lunar chronicles. I‘m a sucker for a badass MC with red hair and a cinnamon roll boyfriend, so I connected quickly with the characters. I loved how there was a switching of povs too. Cinder gave me life once again with her sarcastic attitude and cargo pants. Thorne was an amazing character and I can‘t wait to see how his love story progresses. 4⭐️

Hawthorne Legacy | Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Finished three books. WHOO!! Defy the Night was an original book that‘s for sure. I would have liked to see a little more badass MC and a little less crying. Really enjoyed it though! 4⭐️. The Hawthorn Legacy was a great addition to the Inheritance Games series. Love the plot twists every other page. 5⭐️. And finally, The final book in the scythe series. Really enjoyed it but wish there was more romance. 4⭐️.

JillsBookshelf I recently read the Hawthorne Legacy and it was SO GOOD! I can‘t wait for the third book ❤️ 6mo

Really on a reading streak. Wow. Finished Legendary. I think I like it more than caraval 5⭐️. Also finished One Of Us is Lying and We Were Liars. Didn‘t like these books as much as I thought I would I could see the plot twists from a mile away. Both probably level out at 2⭐️. Starting Defy the Night. Let‘s take a second to appreciate the cover. I am in love🥰

Finished three books (kotlc legacy, thunderhead, and in the same boat) Started legendary. Favorite had to be “in the same boat” learn a LOT about canoeing. GO READ IT. Thunderhead was an amazing Instalment in the scythe trilogy. Can‘t wait to see what happens. Rereading legacy. Shannon does not disappoint.

I would like to go out on a limb and say that Ace was my dream boy and I thank Tashie for him. I felt like the romance was a little planned but overall 👌🏼♥️. I loved it. I also loved to see a book that as a MC that suffered from anxiety. Not something you see everyday. ⭐️4
