November Wrap Up - Books


Monday Reviews (on a Friday!) - Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Hello everyone!

Today I will be reviewing a book I read a while back, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.

First, a synopsis:

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…

That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.

**Just a disclaimer: I would definitely say that this book …

September and October Wrap Up

Hello everyone!

I decided to combine this and last months wrap ups because I ran out of time to do last months, but still wanted to post a wrap up. I didn't read quite as many as I did in August (which I think was almost 30!) because I started school again, so I don't have as much time to read!

Because I am combining two months, I am going to just put what my rating was a link to my review because otherwise we are going to be here for another month!

Let's get started!

First, I read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

I gave it a 5/5 on Goodreads.

Next, I read Inside by Alix Ohlin.

I gave this book a 1/5 stars on Goodreads.

After that, I got the privilege of reading an e-ARC for a review. I read Ignite by Lily Paradis and LOVED IT!

I have a full review on my blog here if you are looking for a more in-depth review, but overall, this was a stunning and beautiful story that will not be soon forgotten!

I gave this book a 5/5 stars on Goodreads! I cannot wait for more from this a…
