Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! Today I will be participating in the weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies from The Broke and Bookish. This week's topic is to feature our latest five star reads.
So here are my latest five star reads, listed from most to least recent. I don't give out five stars easily (it's becoming harder and harder to do!), so these date back from summer of last year.
1.) Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
This has been my only five star read of this year! It was the final book in the Starbound trilogy, and I absolutely loved it. All the characters finally came together and it was downright amazing.
2.) Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Ugly Love was amazing. This is tied for my favorite Colleen Hoover book. It tore me apart and I couldn't have wished for anything better. I'm glad that this wasn't the first book I read of CoHo's but instead a later one.
3.) Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Maybe Amie Kaufman is just a magical author. I knew I was going to like Illuminae before I read it, but I didn't realize I would wholeheartedly love it. Gemina, the sequel, is one of my most anticipated reads of this year. I'm so excited to see how the story progresses.
4.) Winter (Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer
This is another concluding novel to a series. I read this last year, and it was everything I wanted and more. My favorite scene has to be where Cress and Thorne go to the party and she's in her butterfly costume. So. Good.
5.) Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Everything, Everything is everything. It's an excellent contemporary novel and it really spoke to me. I absolutely loved the premise of this story and Madeline's character. The novel itself was beautiful with the artwork and everything!
6.) Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Maybe Someday is yet another contemporary novel and one from Colleen Hoover. This novel blew me away and cemented CoHo as one of my favorite authors. Sydney and Ridge are one of my favorite fictional couples.
7.) A Mad Zombie Party by Gena Showalter
Gena Showalter's White Rabbit Chronicles is pure fun! Even though the story wrapped up quite nicely for Ali and Cole in the third book, I really loved this one as we saw Frosty finally get the happy ending her deserved. I appreciated his character a lot more than I did in the previous novels.
8.) The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
Even though I had to read The Glass Castle for school, this memoir hit me hard. I haven't gone through anything like Jeannette has, but her story was truly mesmerizing. I can't imagine having to go through a childhood like hers. You should definitely read it if you haven't yet.
9.) Angelfall by Susan Ee
Angelfall is the first book in the Penryn & the End of Days trilogy. I haven't read the sequel because I am so nervous that I will be let down. I wasn't expecting much out of this book, which was why I was so taken aback when I absolutely loved Susan Ee's gritty dystopian.
10.) Every Last Promise by Kristin Halbrook
Kristin Halbrook's Every Last Promise is an intriguing tale of sexual assault. Because of this, the novel is dark, but it was very interesting. I don't know if I would give the book five stars now, but it was a five star read back when I read it.
