Alicia (aliciajb) | 960 comments So I wound up reading Unchained (Nephilim Rising, #1) by J. Lynn and Queen Alpha (NYC Mecca #2) by Jaymin Eve .
Unchained (Nephilim Rising, #1) by J. Lynn was a bit meh, but Queen Alpha (NYC Mecca #2) by Jaymin Eve was amazingly awesome. Loved it!

Jenny Completion Post:

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas
Book- ACOTAR
Author- Sarah J Maas
Date Finished- 2/4/17
Rating- 5 BIG STARS...I wish I could give it more.

While there were a few minor problems with this book, overall I just adored it and it was by far my favorite book so far of this year, probably of the last 6 months or more.

As for I Was Here by Gayle Forman which was the one I initially mentioned I was going to read, it got pushed aside pretty quick when I got sucked into ACOTAR, but I am 10% thru and hope to finish in the next couple days.

You should definitely read A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. Maas then. I loved it even more than the first one.

Alicia- I desperately want to read book 2. I REALLY WANTED to move straight into it but felt that I should wrap up a couple other books I am in the middle of first. But it is coming, very VERY soon. :)
