Books Read Update 2: Tiny Review & Rating

Once again it's been soooo long since my last post which was a books read update with a tiny review and rating of the books. I'm sorry for such a long absence, but I've have been reading some and a lot of pretty amazing ones at that! This is another post dedicated to those books I've read since the last post with some brief adjectives and thoughts of mine on each book and my rating. These are the books that I've read since the last post:

The Maze Runner by James Dashner (Paperback)
5 stars: Dystopian Sci-Fi, creepy and scary (in a good way), gripping plot, 
unique and interesting characters, can't wait to read the 2nd book!

Ruined: How to Ruin Books 1, 2, & 3 by Simone Elkeles (Paperback)
4.5 stars: lovable characters with some really irritating ones too, romantic and fun stories, great sequels (except the 2nd one was a little boring at times), interesting Israeli culture added in, perfect ending, altogether exciting and hard to put down (read all 3 books in a day...yes they were just that good and hard to put down!)

The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June
by Robin Benway (Hardback)
4 stars: supernatural drama, great female characters, loved the alternate chapters from each sister's point-of-view, can't wait to Robin's next book!

So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti (ARC)
3 stars: nice romantic story, a tad cliche but good nonetheless, funny and interesting characters, cute ending

Leaving Paradise and Return to Paradise
by Simone Elkeles (Paperbacks)
5 stars: AMAZING, powerful, I just adore all of Simone's books!, read both books in a little over a day, loved loved loved the characters, very emotional pasts that made the story so interesting

Scandal and Vanished: Private Books 11 & 12
by Simone Elkeles (Paperbacks)
4 stars: surprising as always, shocking turn of events all throughout, great additions to the series, huge cliffhanger at the end of both, can't wait for the newest book to come out!

Nefertiti by Michelle Moran (Paperback)
5 stars: a fantastic historical fiction story about the reign of Nefertiti from the view of her sister, loved the Egyptian culture/history/romance, overall so amazing, enduring and lovable characters, sad ending however, I just love anything by Michelle Moran!


  1. I love the cover art for the novel,"Nefertiti". It's beautiful. Haven't read it, but the cover alone would make me want to buy it.

  2. So many Simone Elkeles books! Hehe. I love her novels :)

    I just read "Leaving Paradise" and I really want to read "Return to Paradise" So glad you enjoyed it makes me want to read it even more :3

    I NEED to read "The Maze Runner" glad you enjoyed it! And I also want to read "The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June" I really enjoyed "Audrey, Wait".
