The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee (ARC Review)

🌟4 stars 🌟

I was so excited when I won this ARC in an Instagram giveaway from Katherine Tegen Books! Now that I’ve finished The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, I’ve been oscillating between 4/4.5 star rating before settling on 4 stars, because I was engrossed in the book while reading it, but it wasn’t one that left me thinking about it for days afterwards. Although not as action-packed as The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, this was still a fun read. This review will contain minor spoilers for The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

I think this book would be great for people who enjoy:

  • Strong Female Protagonists
  • Historical Fiction
  • Girl Gangs
  • Minority Representation

Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 All the Stars in the Universe 🌟

The last book of The Illuminae Files trilogy was such a roller coaster of emotions. It didn’t make me cry as much as Illuminae, but it definitely tore at my heart in some parts. Obsidio is filled with humor, heartbreak, and hope. What an amazing finale. This review will contain spoilers for Illuminae and Gemina.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 4 space station stars 🌟

Although this book didn’t rip out my heart like Illuminae did, it was still a fascinating read that takes place right where Illuminae ended. Gemina follows different protagonists at the Heimdall space station. Also, yes I am aware that I read this book a month ago and I’m just posting it now.

The Trouble with Unicorns by D.T Dyllin (DNF Review)

🌟 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.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 5 stars 🌟

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:

  • Sci-Fi
  • Technology
  • Creative Book Format
  • Books that hit you right in the feels
  • Books that make you cry
  • Fast-paced read
  • Plot twists GALORE

Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart (ARC Review)

🌟3.5 stars 🌟

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
  • Instalove
  • Love Triangles
  • Strong Women Empowering Women

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

🌟4.5 stars🌟

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
  • Carnivals
  • Mysterious characters
  • “Bad Boy” trope
  • Scavenger hunts
