My November wrap up:
Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4) by Marissa Meyer -Read it and loved it! You all know I highly recommend this series to everyone. I can't handle that it's pretty much over. *sobs*
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell -I absolutely loved this book as well! I loved Fangirl so this one was a no-brainer. I loved seeing Simon and Baz come to life.
November 9 by Colleen Hoover -I love Colleen Hoover and this book was no different. While it wasn't my favorite of her books (Slammed, anyone?) it held my attention and I finished it fairly quickly. Still a solid 5-star read.
The Uninvited by Cat Winters -This one took me a little while to get through but the author is great and I really enjoyed the writing.

Jennifer | 248 comments I just finished Bloodfever (Fever, #2) by Karen Marie Moning after a friend's recommendation of the first book in the series. It tried to start it at the beginning of the year but just couldn't push past the first page or two. Once I made the conscious push to really try reading it though, I really liked it, as I did the first book. Now I have to get the third one.
Still working on Winter...

I'll have to look into that one. It looks really good!

Ooh I liked Bad Girls Don't Die. I need to give All of Our Yesterdays a chance.

My December Wrap-up:
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman -I enjoyed reading this one. It took me a bit to get into it but after about 200 pages, it became a very quick read. I thought the format was interesting too, being told through blog posts, emails, and files. 4 Stars.

All I Want for Christmas is You (Fate with a Helping Hand, #1) by Lisa Mondello -I was craving a sweet, short Christmas romance and this one for free for kindle. I enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite but I finished it in a day and it was just what I needed. 3 stars.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven -This book was sad and happy and cute and heartbreaking all at once. 4 stars.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon -I freaking loved this book and highly recommend it. Even though I guessed the ending, how it all came about was great! It does end rather abruptly but I left pretty satisfied. 5 stars.

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll -One of my first graphic novels and I loved it. It was super creepy yet intriguing and I loved the artwork. 5 stars.

Five Nights at Freddy's The Silver Eyes by Scott Cawthon -This book was so creepy! It was great to get some backstory on the games though. -4 stars.

So I didn't read much in January as I had a lot of sad family stuff I won't bore you with. This is what I did read:
Night Film by Marisha Pessl -I freaking loved this book. I loved the style, the pictures, the freaking app, and everything else. It was brilliant. 5 stars.
Wolf By Wolf (Wolf By Wolf, #1) by Ryan Graudin -I really liked this one. It was interesting and fun. 4 stars
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp -I really enjoyed this one. It was sad and kept me on my toes. 4 stars.
Till Death Do Us Part (April Lancaster, #1) by Lurlene McDaniel -this was a re-read. I read it probably 10 years ago when I was obsessed with the author. I've decided to go back and read some of my teen favorites and that's why I went with this one. Sad yet sweet, I gave it 4 stars.

February wrap-up:
The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom -I loved this book. It was a beautiful and enjoyable story. 5 stars
What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler -This was a hard book to read but such a great one. Dark topics but it was done so well. I really liked the main character and you really get to see her grow throughout it. 5 stars.
The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1) by Rick Yancey -This was one of those rare books where I enjoyed the movie more than the book. The book jumped around a lot and didn't build up the relationships like the movie did. 3 stars
Me Before You (Me Before You, #1) by Jojo Moyes - This book was sweet and sad and gave me all the feels. 5 stars
For Better, For Worse, Forever (April Lancaster, #2) by Lurlene McDaniel -This was a re-read of one of my favorite books as a teen. I was obsessed with this author and decided to go back and re-read some of her books. I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed it and it was quick and easy and sad. 4 stars.
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis -I read this a month too late but I'm glad I did. It was creepy but I also found it strangely confusing and kind of dull. 3 stars.
Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer -I don't think I need to explain why I loved this one. 5 stars.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson -I loved this book. It was creepy and interesting and that ending though! 5 stars.

March wrap-up:
Miracles from Heaven A Little Girl, Her Journey to Heaven, and Her Amazing Story of Healing by Christy Beam -I really enjoyed this book. I didn't really know what it was about before I started reading it but picked it up because it's going to be a movie. Great decision. It was a fast and positive read. 5 stars.
The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout -Holy crap, I loved this book!! It is free on Wattpad and is by Jennifer Armentrout (one of my favorite authors). Now it is super creepy but so satisfying. I highly suggest it. 5 stars.
Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2) by Sarah J. Maas -I loved Throne of Glass and this one seemed to do it justice as a sequel. It was faced paced with some new twists. I'm excited to continue on with the series. 5 stars.
Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica - I enjoyed this one but wouldn't really call it a thriller. I was just expecting something different. 3 stars.
In Real Life by Jessica Love -I freaking loved this one! This was one that I finished in one sitting. 5 stars.
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad -This book was so freaking creepy! I loved it. It is probably the creepiest book I've ever read. 4 stars.
Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy (Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, #1) by Cassandra Clare -I read books 2-7 in March and I have loved them all so far. They all got rated between 4 and 5 stars. If you've read the Mortal Instruments series, I highly suggest this one. You get to follow Simon and see many characters from both Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices.
