Where has the time gone? The months are flying by too fast, I feel. Even though my long weekend plans shriveled up, I knew I wanted to set aside some free time for my posts and my books.
I’m excited and proud to say that Mom has just two more rounds of chemo left! She started back in March, and we never thought we’d reach this far. She’s gone through so much. Even though our lives are still hell, I cannot be prouder of what she’s done.
So let’s start off a new month with a wrap-up post! Have fun.
I’m honestly surprised these books made this post. After reading Finale, I knew I had to bring out the big guns so I wouldn’t fall into a harsh reading slump.
Finale by Stephanie Garber
I cannot believe that the series is over. We readers have too many unresolved feelings about it. And I wish there were more sequels to fill in the missing pieces. Even if the ending is predictable, I love Stephanie worldbuilding.
Love and Lead by Coralee June
I was not ready to leave this world. I adore the Bullets and love how they’ve evolved into their own characters. Even though the ending is explosive, I know we have one more title, Nyx’s story, which I am dying to read!
The Crow’s Murder by Tate James
As much as I love Tate’s series, I feel that the Crow’s Murder is the weakest sequel in the series. I love Wesley, but I needed more character growth in this one. However, I had no say in ignoring that cliffhanger.
The Alpha’s Pack by Tate James
Finally, I get to read River’s story! I’ve been waiting for so long. Besides Austin and Cole, I adore River. And his storyline brings a new twist to the group.
I had all the intention to add more to this list. But even though I was interested in several other titles, I didn’t feel like picking them up until later. Do you know what I mean? But I’m eager to read these goodies!
- DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff
