Wrap-Up

February Wrap-Up|2019

IMG_1047.jpegHope everyone had a good reading month! This month was an amazing reading month for me because I read 12 books! I honestly don’t think I’ve read this many books in a month for a long time. So, onto the books I read this month.

Melanin: The Melanin Chronicles Book One by Mike Freeman

This was an interesting read. I’ve never read a novella that wasn’t part of a series so this was a different experience for me. I thought the concept was interesting with this novella but I feel like it fell short just a little. I think this book could of done a lot better had it been a full length book. Because this is a novella some things just felt like they were brushed by and could of used a little more development. The ending was my favorite part because what a cliffhanger. I gave this a 3/5 stars.

Seafire by Natalie C. Parker

What an action packed book and I loved every second that I was reading it. Caledonia and her crew are such badass women and I loved that! Every minute of this book was full of action, from the first page to the very end, it was action packed. I didn’t want to put this book down one bit while reading this. I gave this a 4/5 stars.

Colder Than Ice by Jane Galaxy

I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy this as much as I did. I really enjoyed watching the relationship grow between the two main characters. I liked how although this was a romance book, each character was overcoming something on their own which added to them as a character. I had a little issue with the writing because some things I felt needed to be distinguished like a text. I also felt that there needed to be a clearer distinction between times. Like one moment I would be reading something and then the next line it would be like the next day which made things a little confusing for me. I gave this a 4/5 stars.

One Bad Idea by Sabrina Stark

This book was alright. The romance was hate to love which is one of my favorite tropes so I enjoyed that. The characters were a little annoying at times. My big issue with this book was the writing, it felt to me like middle school writing and to me it took away from the story. The ending was to soon it felt for me and I didn’t really like it. I gave it a 2.5/5 stars.

Black Diamond by Ali Dean

I really liked this book. Roxie was an enjoyable character. Throughout the whole book she stood her ground and she would not down down to Ryker and his rules. She stood true to her gut and her belief throughout the book which made me like her even more as a character. Ryker took me a little while to like and by the end I sorta came around to him. There felt like there were some clichés embedded into this story and unfortunately they were clichés that I don’t like. I gave this a 3.5/5 stars.

Kingdom Cold by Brittni Chenelle

This book, I’m honestly not really sure what to make of it. I didn’t like the main character Charlotte all to much. I found her whiny and immature throughout most of the book. But she did have a character growth which I was glad to see because she really needed one. The other main character Young I really liked. He was my favorite character in this whole book and I liked how kind he was even to Charlotte who wasn’t always the kindest. The ending was interesting but I was confused by it. I thought the ending didn’t really fit the plot and how it was wrapped up just didn’t make sense to me. The pacing felt a little fast paced but it also fit the circumstances that the book takes places in. I gave this a 3/5 stars.

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott

If it wasn’t for the movie(and Cole Sprouse being in it) I probably wouldn’t have picked this up. I’ve heard some people say that this was based off of the screenplay and I don’t know if thats true or not but I think it might be. I really liked this book. I thought it was cute and heartbreaking at the same time. Throughout this book I suspected the ending but with each chapter I believed in a change. After reading reviews on Goodreads, it made me realize this book had some problems with it but I can’t say what those are because of spoilers. I gave this a 4/5 stars.

Secret by Lindsay Smith

I liked this book. The beginning was really interesting, however the middle I found myself skimming over some parts, but luckily the ending picked right back up again. The whole supernatural abilities was an interesting aspect but I did get confused sometimes on what some abilities could do. The ending was enjoyable and I look forward to the next book. I gave this a 4/5 stars.

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

I wasn’t really a fan of this book. I am not a big nonfiction fan and I don’t really care for Anna Kendrick. Some parts I found interesting like her early life and when she made the move to California but other than that I wasn’t very much interested in the story. I gave this a 3/5 stars.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

This was a good last book in this series. I finished this book super fast and just didn’t want to put it down. I really liked the relationship between the two characters and found them so cute together. I really enjoyed this series as a whole and I think this book was my favorite out of the three. I gave this a 4/5 stars.

Alice’s Wish by Kay Harris

I enjoyed this romance novel. It was short and cute and easy to read. The romance was nice and I enjoyed watching the relationship grow. If you want you can check out my full review here. I gave this a 3/5 stars.

In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

This was the last book I read for the month of February. This was a good thriller and I read this in about three hours, I couldn’t put it down. The overall mystery was pretty intriguing and I did not guess the ending. That being said, I felt like the suspense aspect of it kind of fell flat. The pacing was also pretty slow for a thriller novel. I also found the main character Nora a bit annoying sometimes. I gave this 3/5 stars.

So there you have it, all the books I read in the month of February, how many did you read?
