Alright, I'll admit it: this post has been a long time coming. I've been a little low on time but now that I'm as free as a bird, I'm catching up on my tags. I was tagged by Joy and Alana at Thoughts By J, Kelly from Diva Book Nerd and Emily from The Looney Teen Writer. To do thirty books would be excessive, even for someone rich in time, so I've picked the first five from each lot. Let's get cracking.
Sorry, I don't intend to read this one. I'm not tempted by contemporaries unless they're sweet and fluffy and I'm stressed and avoiding real life.
Too much romance, too little action. I expected a bit more.
More Than This by Patrick Ness
I was a bit unaffected by this one, to be honest. It did make me tear up a tad but the characters felt so impersonal to me.
Super curious about this one. Now I really regret not picking it up last year. Sounds like I'm in for a good laugh.
Solid dystopia for what we had in the market back then. I wasn't crazy for it. It didn't really affect me. It started off strong and died down into a whole of I-don't-care. I don't even think I finished this series.
Warner had some blush worthy lines. I swooned. Just a little.
Splintered by A.G. Howard
I love a good retelling and c'mon, Morpheus. He's all you need to know.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Beautiful writing. And I might have cried a bit. I don't remember why but I remember those ugly, ugly tears.
It's on my TBR but...I don't intend on reading this soon. Personal reasons. I'm just not up for it and honestly, I don't foresee it to be something that will be read in the next 6 months.
The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
Hysterical at some scenes but it was a light read and I liked it. Plus Henry. I liked him. A lot.
I cried. Didn't most of us? BUT I wasn't moved. For some odd reason, contemporaries and I don't really go crazy for one another.
I'm too afraid to dive in. Apparently it has no respect for our emotions. I can't afford that right now.
It was a solid conclusion. Honestly, I read it years ago and while I remember nothing of the plot, I do remember being unimpressed. I don't know what young me was expecting but well, I suppose I wanted a little more (of what, who knows).
While I guessed the ending, it didn't make it any less crazy. I'm feeling a tad scared of island adventures now. Very creeped out.
Very solid retelling. It didn't rip my heart out but hey, it's nice to just to feel normal good.
Finding fifteen different gifs takes time, but I was very much entertained (does it say something about me if it's that easy haha). So now I'm going to bless this time-consuming fun task to some other people:
