And there you go! Congrats if you made it all the way down here! I apologize if there are any mistakes genre wise, please correct me if there are

Did we read a lot of the same books this year!? Let me know in the comments!

Stockholm

P.S. I love how my blog originally started as YA and the tagline still is YA and General Life, both looking at what i read, i realize that nearly half of the books i read were adult books ha ha

P.P.S. If i were to have a giveaway would you prefer a 2016 pre order or an already released book?

December 2015- Wrap Up

December Wrap Up!

Happy New Year everyone! I know my wrap up is a day late, but better late than never i guess.

I read 12 books in December, making my grand total for 2015 131 books! Because of this, i made my goodreads goal 135 books. I know that i could have gone for higher, but next year is going to be junior year in high school, one of the busiest years I’ve heard, so i may not have enough time to read as much i want to.

Anyway, on with it!

I read November 9 by Colleen Hoover

To see my review of 5 stars, you can click here


I also read My Life With the Walter Boys, Nuts and Deal Breakers

  

I’d give Deal Breakers a 3 out of 5, Nuts a 4 out of 5 and My Life with the Walter Boys a 3.5 out of 5.


For school I Read:

  


I finally read Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber!

 

I’ll be doing a double book review on those in a few days. I think that I’m going to give Outlander 5 out of 5 stars and Dragonfly in Amber a 4.5

Edit: You can read my review on books 1 and 2 here


I also finally read:

  

Reviews will be posted soon for all of these, but I’m going to give Simon a 5 out of 5 stars, Daughter of Deep Silence a 3, and Between Shades of Gray a 4.5.

Funny story actually, I read all of the Daughter of Deep Silence while i was on line in Universal, and 3/4 of Between Shades of Gray on line as well. (There were a lot of long lines!)

Edit:

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda review

November 2015 Wrap Up

Calliope The Book Goddess (1)

So November has been a slow reading month for me because i’m up to my ears in school.

I read 7 books, three of them being short books, so that’s why it seems like i read more than i did.


So first up i read On the Fence by Kasie West.

Now i’m not really a Kasie West fan, and i didn’t like this book that much either. It also took me a day to read, which i was surprised at, but i guess it was just a short book. 3.5 out of 5 stars.


Next i read The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski, book 2 in the Winner’s Trilogy.

204432071

I reviewed this book actually, and you can click here to take a look at what i thought. I gave it a 4.8 out of 5 stars.


I also read Happily Ever After by Kiera Cass!

I can’t really rate this book as it is just a collection of novellas about other characters in the Selection Series. I had already previously read the Prince and the Guard, so i only read The Favorite and the Queen, oh, and Celeste’s chapter.

I loved reading from Marlee’s point of view, but Amberly’s made me mad. I hated the cut the hair scene because Amberly gave in so willingly to Clarkson and i hated their relationship because he controlled her very much, and i hated watching that happen.


I read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo!

six-of-crows

You can click here for my review, but i gave it a 5 out of 5 star rating if you were curious.


My guilty pleasure read was Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren. It’s kind of the second book in the Beautiful Bastard series i think, i don’t really know all the details.

I enjoyed Beautiful Bastard, but Beautiful Stranger was a bit too much for me given that it is an adult romance novel and i’m still a teen. There was a lot more advanced kind of romance from Beautiful Stranger that i couldn’t handle because i’m not old enough yet. Oops.


I read Winter by Marissa Meyer!

winter-final

I gave it a 3.9 out of 5 stars, and you can click here to see my review.

Sorry if you absolutely loved this book…i merely thought it was ok.


I read The Sword of Summer, Book 1 in the Gods of Asgard series by Rick Riordan

I had such high hopes for this book and i was disappointed. It sucks being disappointed by a book. I posted my review for it yesterday actually, so you can read all my thoughts here.


Huh, i actually made a review for every book that i wanted to this month!

What books did you read this month? Do we share any books? Leave a link to your November Wrap Up, or leave a comment, and i’ll be sure to check it out and reply 🙂
