Sunshine: A Book That Made You Smile
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
I got exactly what I wanted out of this book which was fluffy and lighthearted feelings and cheesy rom-com antics. *chef’s kiss* Perfect for a summer read!
Rain: A Book You Couldn’t Put Down
Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
A fun, adventurous, Japanese inspired fantasy that kept me reading into the early A.M. hours. It hooked me from the very first chapter until the end!
Wind: A Book That Blew You Away
Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert
The writing in this was SOOO great. I’m officially in love with Brandy Colbert’s storytelling. Her characters felt so real and natural. I typically enjoy these contemporaries that have a slice-of-life and this was no exception. I also highly recommend listening to the audio book because the narrator is so wonderful.
Hurricane: A Tragic Book
Sadie by Courtney Summers
This is definitely one of the most tragic books I’ve read this year. This a YA thriller that tackles some very difficult topics such as sexual abuse, grief, and addiction. The ending is definitely one of the most shocking and bittersweet endings I’ve read recently.
Blizzard: A Book You Had High Expectations For
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
I DNF’d this one about 5 chapters in. I couldn’t get into the story because the characters didn’t interest me. The pacing felt super slow, since there were just a bunch of long winded descriptions of the environment and the day in the life of the character. I always hate to say that a book “bored” me, but this one bored me. I was expecting to like this one because I saw some reviewers I trust give this 4/5 stars and I like Beauty and the Beast. I may try this again if I don’t have other books on my queue.
Tornado: A Book You Didn’t Like at First but Ended Up Loving
Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
This book has been one of my most surprising reads from this year because I didn’t expect that I would end up really enjoying it. At first I thought it would be a typical coming of age romantic drama and that is exactly what it is but it’s done well. I felt very attached to the main characters, Juliet and Declan.
