# Of Books Read: 8
1.Love&Misadventure by Lang Leav
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Release Date: September 17, 2013
Overall Thoughts: This book of poetry was wonderful! Each poem was written beautifully & was definitely a memorable read to start off the year!
2.Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes (Falling Kingdoms #4)
Release Date: December 15, 2015
Overall Thoughts: Morgan continues to develop her world & characters in this amazing series! Can’t wait for book 5!
3.Once Upon A Kiss by Robin Palmer
Released: January 5, 2016
Overall Thoughts: The aspect of time travel/alternate universes made this a fun read! The plot is quick/easy to follow and overall just a fun adventure! Update (late Jan. 2016)-Since writing my review, I’ve changed my rating! It really was a fun read, but I lowered it after really thinking/realizing that this was a fun book for sure, but seems more like a 4-star read!
4.Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen #0.1-#0.2)
Released: January 5, 2016
Overall Thoughts: A great addition to the Red Queen Series! Out of both of the novellas featured in this novel, my favorite is by far Queen Song. Steel Scars was good, but I felt it was lacking. However, from Steel Scars I really loved the friendship Farley & Shade developed! This definitely has me excited for Glass Sword.
5.Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
Release Date: November 17, 2015
Overall Thoughts: This was a great coming of age story! The theme of friendship is the heart of this story and seen clearly through the journey both Victoria & Reagan take as they prep for college.
6. See How They Run by Ally Carter (Embassy Row #2)
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Release Date: December 22, 2015
Overall Thoughts: A wonderful sequel! Ally continues to keep readers guessing till the very end! The plot further develops in this book and the ending has me excited for book 3!(**Additional note to review**) However, I do wish in further books, the characters would be more developed! They are interesting to read about, but I feel that the characters are only known on the surface level and should be further developed as the series continues!
7. Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton (Rebel Of The Sands #1)
Publisher: Penguin/Viking Books For Young Readers
Release Date: March 8, 2016
Overall Thoughts: A great start to an amazing trilogy! The world and characters are very developed! More to be discussed in my full review coming soon!
8. Paper Wishes by Lois Sepahban
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Release Date: January 5, 2016
Overall Thoughts: A thoughtful and lyrical novel which explores many themes of family, loss, and friendship!
