Reviewing the Unreviewed: April

I read a lot of books that I don’t end up reviewing for whatever reason. Some because I wasn’t impressed. Some because I didn’t have the time. Some I just wasn’t feeling it on whatever particular day I finished. I thought I’d start doing a post once a month  with just the couple thoughts I shared on Good Reads.

See Me

See Me by Wendy Higgins. Read April 13-15. 1 Star.

While this book had some cute moments, it was not for me. I think maybe the very young spectrum of YA readers might enjoy this (though there is some mild language and some sexual situations, but it’s not graphic so it could still be ok -as an aside, I find the increasingly graphic scenes in YA is kind of alarming, but I am in the minority of that, so many people may find nothing objectionable at all for the young readers.)

I found the plot of the story pretty laughable (not in a good way) and the characters were not all that likable. I HATED the main character’s younger sister. Like every single thing she did bothered me.

I believe this is a standalone, but the ending was a little too open for me to be satisfied with it.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han.

While slow paced and a little silly, I enjoyed this book. The main character was really likable and I found that I appreciated how naïve she was about things, as opposed to the type of experienced characters there are in most YA novels. I was super naïve in high school myself, so I found that relatable. I was a little disappointed that this wasn’t a standalone, but I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

What I Thought Was True

What I Thought was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick. Read April 19-23. 1 star.

I was pretty disappointed with this book. I enjoyed My Life Next Door and was looking forward to another sweet read, but this just wasn’t it. Most of the characters weren’t very likable and I felt like it left too many storylines open.

RE-READ

Untold (The Lynburn Legacy, #2)

Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan.

I enjoyed this book just as much the second time around. I can’t wait for the next book. September is so far away!

Fangirl

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut lately where noting new sounds interesting. Rainbow Rowell to the rescue! I love this book. If you haven’t read it, you should.

Monday’s Minutes

MM

Monday’s Minutes is my weekly post where I share what I’m reading and what I’m reading next.

WHAT I’M READING

See Me

See Me by Wendy Higgins. Faeries. Leprechauns. Magical humans. This book is a little odd. I’m not very far in, but so far I’m not terribly impressed. The plot and the writing is not up to par with Higgins Sweet Evil series. I’m going to give it a few more chapters to see if it picks up enough for me to want to finish it.

WHAT I’M READING NEXT

I’m just not sure yet. I feel like I’m in a bit of a reading rut and nothing sounds interesting to me right now. Any suggestions?????
