🌟 No Rating | DNF 🌟
I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours.
I wanted to try really hard to get through this book, but I ended up DNF’ing at 61%. I was over halfway through and I found nothing about this book that made me want to keep reading. I was tempted to DNF from the first chapter, so I’m pretty surprised I managed to make it this far. There will be spoilers.

If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying over how much this book has broken my heart. Illuminae should honestly should have a disclaimer that it will rip out your heart and you will cry a lot. Illuminae is one of the few books that I went into with high expectations and wasn’t disappointed.
You’ll also enjoy this book if you’re a fan of:
- Creative Book Format
- Books that hit you right in the feels
- Books that make you cry
- Fast-paced read
- Plot twists GALORE

I thought the synopsis sounded interesting, but the story itself was unoriginal. This book was well written, but every plot twist could be seen from a mile away for anyone that avidly reads YA.
I think this book would be great for people that enjoy:
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
- Love Triangles
- Strong Women Empowering Women

I saw a lot of mixed reviews for this book on Goodreads, so I decided to give it a try for myself. I loved the concept of Caraval and learning more about the game and how it’s played. Although, I was annoyed by Scarlett for the entirety of this book, it was an enjoyable read overall.
To start off I think that this book would be great for people that enjoy:
- Action in the first chapter
- Fast-paced novels
- Mysterious characters
- “Bad Boy” trope
- Scavenger hunts

I am still not really sure how I feel about this book? I loved it enough that I read it in two days and stayed up to finish it, but it was also riddled with overused tropes and left me with lots of questions.

I thought I would enjoy this book more than I actually did. It was challenging to get through for me, because I felt like the characters fell flat and the plot was a little confusing to follow.

This book is so precious! I loved reading about the adventures of Percy, Felicity, and Monty! I laughed so much. As an aside, I read this along with listening to the audiobook and Christopher Coulsen does a marvelous job of narrating this novel!

This book is a short story that I received from Hidden Gems and that I have chosen to voluntarily review. I am still not quite sure how to gauge short stories, because I love books with a lot of world building and character development which is something I have found that short stories lack. This lead to a two star rating of this book for me.

Whenever I have a bit of free time, I’ll request a book or two from Hidden Gems. Out of the few I have been sent and approved, Resonance by Jennifer Greenhall has been one of my favorites. I would give this book four out of five stars, just because I believe the romance in the book was a little too rushed and unrealistic.

Romance novel covers always make me a little uncomfortable because of their tendency to be quite revealing. Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall was a quick read that took me a few hours since it was only a little under 200 pages. I really just wanted something to read between The Cruel Prince and when my copy of Scythe would come in the mail, so this suited perfectly. For such a short book, it kind of fell short as well, as I would only give this book three out of five stars, since everything was rushed and I was not the biggest fan of the main character.
