Review: P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

25486998

“Signed, sealed, delivered…

While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!

Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…”

Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany

51by71ubtal-_sx329_bo1204203200_Image and synopsis from Amazon:

“Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne,Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”

Goodreads Book Tag

I first wanted to say thank you to Donna @ Chocolatenwaffles’ Blog for tagging me in the Goodreads Book Tag 🙂 I’ve apparently had Goodreads since 2011, but I certainly have not been active with it that entire time. Honestly, I’ve only really started to use it the past few months as a way to keep track of my books. I love it now! I don’t know how I would ever keep track of all my to-read books without my lovely list on Goodreads.

Top 5 Wednesdays is hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes and Lainey @Gingerreadslainey. You can check out the Goodreads group here.

I had a hard time only choosing five but here are the books I definitely plan to finish before the end of the year:

Review: Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2)

14061955Image and synopsis from Amazon: 

Darkness never dies.

Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

Review: Legend by Marie Lu

61t9jwddgyl-_sx326_bo1204203200_Image and synopsis from Amazon:

“What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths – until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.”

The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker. I received this ARC from NetGalley and I was really excited because I enjoyed Walker’s CHRONOS series. I’m a little over halfway through and I’m sad to say I’m not loving it. I still have more to go so I’m hoping it will pick up soon!

 

 

 

 

 

Recently finished:

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I thought this book was great! You can read my full review here.

Legend by Marie Lu. I adored Legend! I flew through it this weekend. Its been awhile since I enjoyed a good dystopian book. June and Day were both great main characters and I loved the alternating points of view. The next two books are already on their way to my apartment 🙂 I’ll post my full review tomorrow.

 

 

What I’ll read next:

Weregirl by C.D. Bell. This is another ARC from NetGalley and I’m hoping I enjoy this! I know the werewolf/vampire craze passed a few years ago but I still enjoy a good supernatural story.

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I have this book sitting on my bookshelf and I realized I should probably start reading it soon. I don’t want to wait so long that I forget what happened in Shadow and Bone.

 

That’s it for me this week! What are you reading? Anything you’re particularly excited about?
