Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you're enjoying the first few days of summer. In an effort to keep up to date, ahem--see previous post, here's the list of books I read this spring in order from first to last.
My Senior Year of Awesome by Jennifer DiGiovanni—YA romance
Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #4.5) by Marissa Meyer—YA fairytale retelling/futuristic
The Walnut Tree by Charles Todd—Historical romance
The Mark of Athena (The Heroes of Olympus #3) by Rick Riordan—YA fantasy
Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl—YA superhero/assassins
The House of Hades (THoO #4) by Rick Riordan—YA fantasy
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han—YA romance
The Blood of Olympus (THoO #5) by Rick Riordan—YA fantasy
There Once Were Stars by Melanie McFarlane—YA dystopian
Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by Marissa Meyer—YA fairytale retelling/futuristic
Defy (Defy #1) by Sara B. Larson—YA fantasy
P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #2) by Jenny Han—YA romance
The Paladins (The Artisans #2) by Julie Reece—YA southern gothic/paranormal
The Bughouse Affair (Carpenter and Quincannon #1) by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini—Historical mystery
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares (Dash & Lily #1) by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan—YA romance
So, I read four YA contemporary romances, nine books with a fantastical bent of some kind, and two historical novels. I really enjoyed finishing up Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series and spending time with the sometimes crazy characters in the Percy Jackson world. :D
All four of the YA romances were really good. Fun characters, angsty situations, and plenty of swoony moments. And even though Lara Jean from To All the Boys I've Loved Before is my new fave quirky-cute character, I think my favorite book of the spring was My Senior Year of Awesome. That book just made me laugh out loud so many times. And you can't beat that.
And now, on to summer reading!
