BYE February! Nice knowing ya. I read heaps this month, owing to the fact I delved into a few easy young adult novels. I want to continue this trend of reading light fluffy YA, and then mix it up with a few more heavy-hitting lit pieces to round out the month.
Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell
I absolutely loved this novel! It was cute, relatable, cheesy, and fun. You can read my in-depth review of Fangirl here. But basically I thought it was adorable and every teen should read it. I gave it 5 stars.
Hag-Seed, Margaret Atwood
I love Margaret Atwood, but this was hard to get into. Nevertheless, I persisted, and damn, it paid off! I should have known Atwood would have something good up her sleeve. If you want to know more about what I thought, read my review of Hag-Seed. But I gave it 4 stars.
Turtles All the Way Down, John Green
Hmm, well. To be honest, I enjoyed reading this book. And by that I mean, I didn’t labour through it, hating every page. But I still don’t think it’s a great book. Read more about what I thought, but I gave it 3 stars.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli
Guys, this book was so cute. It was just so happy and heartwarming and had cute little twists and lots of beautiful, diverse, unique, well-rounded characters. I haven’t done a full review of this book yet but I rated it 4 stars.
Little Fires Everywhere, Celeste Ng
I won’t divulge any details of this novel yet, because I’m discussing it with my book club and I want to keep the conversation fresh and new there. But after reading this novel I definitely want to check out more by Celeste Ng; she’s a great writer.
