1. Five Feet Apart by Racheal Lippincott
Thoughts: Such a sweet book. I think the story was so good and brought attention to CF in a great way. Had me feeling allllll the emotions.
Rating: 4/5 stars
2. Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, 0.5)
Thoughts: These were such fun little stories! I enjoyed being back in the peculiar world again! I wanted to read this finally because I really want to get to the fourth book really soon.
Rating: 3/5 stars
3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling (HP, #5)
Thoughts: This was a reread. This one always takes me so long to read. It’s so dark and poor Harry is so miserable the entire book. Just sad. It is probably my least favorite of all the books, but still so good.
Rating: 5/5 stars
4. My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren
Thoughts:This was so cute! I think I just really enjoy the friends-to-lovers trope. I also think I just really enjoy anything Christina Lauren writes because I haven’t been disappointed yet.
The friendship group in this one was the best I’ve read in a while. They were so fun and supported each other so much. Millie was so funny, and Reid was adorable. Loved them together!
Again, definitely recommend Christina Lauren.
Rating: 4/5 stars
5. What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
Thoughts: This was cute, which I expected because, I mean, Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. I really enjoyed it. The Hamilton and Harry Potter references made my heart so happy, especially the Hamilton references. Arthur was a huggeee fan like I am, and when he hung up on Ben because he said he’d never listened to it, I literally laughed out loud. It was very clear who wrote each character. The writing was super easy to distinguish, but I felt like it worked really well together at the same time. Arthur kind of got on my nerves at times. He’s young so there was obvious immaturity, but he was just so extra sometimes that it worked my nerves a bit. I also hated the ending, so.
Cute read, but definitely not my favorite I’ve read from these two authors.
Rating: 3.5/5 stars
