Labor Day Weekend Wrap-Up

We are just not going to acknowledge the fact that I haven’t made a blog post in 6 months. Okay? Okay.

Over a time period of 3 days (Saturday, Sunday & Monday), I have read 6 books for a total of 1,865 pages. I am currently on a 7th book, but I am not pressuring myself to finish it before midnight.

Do not read any reviews or any synopsis on this book. Go in blind. This book was not at all what I was expecting. I thought I knew what was going on, but I did not. The quote on the back states, “You will be scared. But you won’t know why…” That is completely accurate. This book was so tense and atmospheric. Creepy AF. 4/5 stars.

The title of this book literally tells you how this is going to end. You know pretty much what you are in for and somehow that does not make it less devastating. One of my favorite BookTubers described this book as, “The Sun is Also a Star meets Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe,” and I feel that is a very accurate description. 4/5 stars

After bawling my eyes out finishing the last book I wanted something less emotional, so I chose a book about a serial rapist/serial killer. As someone who listens to a lot of true crime podcasts, this book has come up a lot. It was very well researched and written and I have no doubt that she helped locate him. 3/5 stars

I love me some hard-hitting YA. And this delivered. The plot was very intense but handled with great care and the writing was beautiful. It really made me question my own emotions. I already want to reread it. 5/5 stars

This is one of those books where I read some reviews before I dove in, and then reread/read more reviews when I finished and it makes me question how to review a book. I thought this book handled some hard-hitting topics pretty well. It wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read, but I enjoyed it. 3/5 stars

I LOVED Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. And I LOVED Love, Simon. I was super excited to read this book, and if I am completely honest, I was a little bummed about this book. The bisexual representation was great and I love Leah, but the plot didn’t go where I wanted it to go. I liked it, I just didn’t love it. 3/5 stars
