I managed to finish three books this month and almost finished a fourth! I think it might be possible to finish four books in September, but I am not making that my goal. I’m just happy to manage two a month with working full time and being a mom. Now, I’ll be adding taking a college online class to that. It’s a good thing that the class is a self-study with no homework. I just have a exam to pass, which I chose December 9th at 2:30 pm, but I have to be there at 2 for check in. You get all of these supplies with your books like flash cards and practice test. I’ll make a blog post next week about it and talk more in-depth then. Here are the three books that I managed to read!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to say that Lauren Oliver really redeemed herself in my eyes. I really disliked Before I Fall and I didn’t have high hopes for this trilogy. I have to say that I loved this novel so much, because it wasn’t what I expected. It isn’t a cliche or similar to anything that I have read before. It is a very unique story that had me guessing at every page. I didn’t want to ut this book down and I finished it in a week. I ate this book up and cannot wait to read the next book in the series. I was really mad at the ending of this book, though. It is bittersweet and I wish it would have ended the way I wanted it to. But then, I would complain about a predictable ending. I had zero expectations going into this series and now, I don’t want to leave.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I didn’t realize that when I started this book, I was only getting half of the story. The other half is supposedly coming out in November. I will tell you already that I am looking forward to reading the rest of the story. I was just getting into the story, when it stopped. The beginning is very long and feels it. I do feel like this resembles Twilight, but I have hope for this book. I really enjoyed the mythology and how it was weaved into the story. It wasn’t heavy handed, which was nice. It is a pleasant story, but I would not recommend reading this until the full story is out. It feels half finished.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoy books by Lori Wick and this one was no exception. It is a little darker than some of her other books, but the women are always in danger and need rescuing by men. That is one thing I don’t enjoy. I want a strong female that doesn’t need to be saved by a man. Otherwise than that, I liked the book well enough. It is a Christian novel, so prepare yourself for some Bible verses. This book shoves God down your throat less than Wick’s other novels. I will be finishing the series and they are very clean reads that anyone at any age could enjoy and understand. I’m starting to read more “adult” books and less YA.
