Jess (makeitsewwithjess) My partner is Kaitlyn and I have chosen to read the following:

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Her date read: 01/30/2018

The Siren by Kiera Cass

My date read: 04/18/2017


Her rating: 5 stars
My rating: 5 Freaking Stars

Both of these books look really good and I am excited to get started
EDIT: Man Siren was so amazing. Like I can't believe I put off reading that for so long. It was such a great read into a world that I enjoyed. Thank you! n
Final EDIT: Eliza was still a good read! I still liked Siren more but I ate up that book. It was a good reading month!

The Siren is my absolute favourite standalone! And I just fell in love with Eliza and Her Monsters this year ... excellent choices! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did :D

Kikijanika | 2936 comments I finished reading Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman

Jessica's date read: 06/11/2017
My date read: 04/06/2018

Jessica's rating: 2 stars
My rating: 5 stars

I liked the idea of the story and the writing style a lot but I found the main characters highly annoying and arrogant. Also (view spoiler) Aidan was cool, though! Reading this book was a fun experience ☺

Ok I have to agree with you on Siren. It was such a blast to read. I had such a good time reading it and it has to be one of the best standalones I have ever read. Thank you for reading them and I totally enjoyed it. Now onto Eliza!

I'm so glad you loved it! <3
I really enjoyed The Fault in Our Stars, way more than I expected! I was actually more surprised by The Maze Runner though ... it won't be my favourite, but when I saw the 2-star rating I was worried. Glad I read it though, I understand why it got made into a movie franchise :)
Have fun with Eliza!


message 39: by Jess (new)

Jess (makeitsewwithjess) Finished with Eliza! It was really good and I read the whole thing in a day! I like Siren more but I really enjoyed the world building and the story. I may reread Maze Runner at some point but I am glad you enjoyed it. Yeah it has a Hunger Games vibe to it which is perfect for movies but I am glad you enjoyed it!

Oh my gosh I am so happy you picked of The Fault in Our Stars! It is such a good book! The movie is really great too. Anything John Green holds a special place in my heart because his books just are so good.

This month was so much fun! Glad you liked the two books


message 40: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments I tried reading both my books, to no success.

Warcross showed me that I should just not read books by the author any more.

And Torch against the night... well, it is still too painful to read that, I tried, but I just couldn't. My mother in law, who passed away due to illness 9 months ago, loved the series, and every time I see the book (and the first one) I think of her. Maybe I will try again next year, maybe then the pain is a bit less. :(


message 41: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (jvblazejak) | 557 comments Sorry to hear that Mehsi. Hope you read a good book soon!

My pick was good but sad. I updated my original post.
