Although I wasn’t a fan of the characters, The Conspiracy of Us has a fantastic plot that keeps just enough mystery to keep you flipping the pages. This is definitely a new series to get started on!
Cress was exactly my kind of book. Swoony, fast-paced, and unpredictable. With my favourite characters to date, Cress blew its predecessors Scarlet and Cinder out of the water.
After reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer, I was desperate for the next book, Scarlet. Cinder didn’t blow me away, but it did leave me anxious for what would happen next. Cinder just had a huge piece of information dropped on her head, and I was really desperate to see where it would take her.
Unfortunately, though I enjoyed reading Scarlet, it didn’t meet my expectations.
Stray by Elissa Sussman had a strong beginning and middle, but the ending was very disappointing. Perhaps it’s because it’s the first in the series, but I finished the book feeling confused rather than anticipatory and wishing I had gotten more from the characters.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven is funny and honest and heart-wrenching. I saw so many reviews and comments that gave me a pretty clear idea of the general direction of the story, but somehow, I was still shocked. The ending punched me, hard, and I was in complete and utter disbelief.
