I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I think I’ve said this for a few other books I’ve read lately, but it’s true! I’m not into pirates, so I wasn’t super intrigued by “pirate books.” There were also mixed reviews for this book, but like I said, such a surprise at how much I liked it! I checked it out from the library, but I’ll definitely add this one to my personal library.
I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through 2017! How? Where did time go? I always ask myself those questions, but never have sufficient answers. 😛
There was a similar post to this one a few months ago. It isn’t quite the end of June, so I haven’t read some of them, but I’m proud to say I have read a handful of them! XD So here’s what the later half of 2017 has in store…
I received this book in an OwlCrate box a long time ago, but I just stuck it on my shelf and there it sat… Until now, of course! The author will be in my town the first week of June, so I’m doing the thing where I try to read all their books so I can get them signed sort of things. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this? XD)
I’ve sat on this review for a while, unsure how exactly to rate this. While I enjoyed it, I found the characters to be flat and the world-building a bit confusing at times. If I continue with this series, I’ll read the physical book instead of the listen to the audiobook.

Today’s topic is Favorite Minor Character, which some consider not the same as side characters. Truthfully, I’ve never really given it much thought. I think my mind just simple stuffs not main characters as side/minor characters. Anyway, I won’t think too hard on it and neither should you (unless you have some strong opinions about it, which feel free to leave a comment about it!).
It’s been such a struggle to put together a coherent review of this book. I fell in love with Lord’s When We Collided, so I didn’t have any doubts about how brilliant The Names They Gave Us would be, but wow. It blew me away. I needed this book 10 years ago, but I’m so glad I have it in my hands now.
Thank you to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for giving me a free, digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
This book has been on my radar since I first heard about it. While I felt the synopsis gave a lot away, I’m always up for a YA fantasy, and thankfully, this book didn’t let me down.
I work in a school district, and I’m fortunate enough to have a whole month off during summer. (I’m already counting down the days.) Of course, I always plan to accomplish a lot during summer, especially when it comes to my TBR pile. While I do have a TBR jar, I’ve been unfaithful to it lately (thanks, library!).
Anyway, I’m going to try to nail down some books I hope to read while on my break, not necessarily books that remind me of summer (though I might include some of those, too. 😛 ).

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, when I picked up I Believe in a Thing Called Love, you knew I absolutely loved it. I read it quickly, which just means I absolutely loved it. When I heard about Maurene’s Goo book, I instantly added it to my TBR. I mean, could you really go wrong with a Korean character who created her own K-drama formula in order to get a guy to like her? The answer might surprise you.
This book has been on my radar since it first came out last year. It sounded cute, but I think I just missed some major, glaring signs that this book wasn’t at all what I thought it would be. I thought it would be a book that explored mental illness, or maybe that’s just my interpretation of the synopsis?
Anyway, I was disappointed and glad I checked it out from the library instead of buying it.
