MONTHLY NEWSLETTER #009

First month of 2017: DONE. That went by too quickly for my taste. Yesterday was the last day of my first semester exams. I am now freee!

I skipped last month’s newsletter as it wasn’t really eventful. I think I started January pretty strong then might have fizzled out by the end. I’m super active on Instagram though, so check me out there!

Let’s get to it!

R&R

*Full reviews are linked in the titles*

4.5/5 stars: I loved the style of this book! With the style, the relatable main character, and the adorable, sweet love story, this standalone made me a forever fan of Nicola Yoon’s writing. She address the meaning of life and love and absolutely made me happy when reading this book. However, the predictability of the plot was disappointing; overall, this novel was a great way to start my new year!

5/5 stars: I have waited too long to read the conclusion of Mary E. Pearson’s trilogy, and IT WAS AN AMAZING FINALE!! I’ve never eaten read a book so fast in my life! I devoured the rest of Lia, Rafe and Kaden’s story. Some tears were shed, but the ending was so sweet and meaningful and my heart could not take those feels. Brilliant story-telling, the plot made sense and Pearson was true to her characters which made the story all the more entertaining. If you haven’t finished this trilogy because the sequel was horrible (It was for me anyway), you MUST. Pearson redeems herself with an amazing finale to her series!
