Ten - Gretchen McNeil (More of a 2.5)Overall I found this book to be pretty entertaining, but it definitely had it's faults.
The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey I really enjoyed this book! I wouldn't say it blew my mind or anything, but it was entertaining.
The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald I didn't enjoy this as much the second time around. :/
Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell HOLY BATMAN THAT ENDING. I'M A MESS. THAT HURT, BUT IT DIDN'T AT THE SAME TIME. WHAT IS THIS FEELING EVEN? NYEAAHHH.

The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World

The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World - Nancy Jo Sales While I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this book. I think that it mostly had to do with me being obsessed with this story. The one thing that bugged me was that I felt she gave too much detail on things that didn't really matter. I do understand that she was trying to get us into the minds of these teenagers and to help the reader fully understand why they did what they did. It just seemed a bit much. I did really enjoy this book though. If you're interested in The Bling Ring story and want to know everything that happens before you see the film, read this book. I've watched the trailer to the film a ridiculous amount of times and you can tell by watching the trailer how much real dialogue was used from the interviews.

Shatter Me

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi My review can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpN9Zka4f3s
Delirium - Lauren Oliver Such a good book. I loved the whole idea of the world even though I found it depressing. It was such a unique concept. There were times when I found myself being annoyed with Lena. I kept thinking to myself "Lena, shut up.", but I grew to really like her character towards the end. Also.. what the heck was that ending? WHY DID YOU DO THAT LAUREN OLIVER. YOU HURT MY HEART. Oh and can I get more Hana Tate please?
Behemoth - Scott Westerfeld, Keith Thompson 3.5 Stars. Full review to come!
The Slither Sisters - Charles Gilman Full review to come! :)

The Archived

The Archived - Victoria Schwab This book was AMAZING. Everybody needs this book in their life. Do yourself a favor and pick this up ASAP.
Leviathan - Scott Westerfeld, Keith Thompson I really enjoyed this and I'm glad it was the first steam punk book I got to read! I loved all the different vehicles and airships throughout the book. I just had a few problems with one of the main characters, as she was super annoying, and I also thought the ending was a BUZZKILL. Other than that the story was great and I'm excited to continue on with this trilogy.
Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen, Alfred Mac Adam I really really REALLY enjoyed this. I was surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. The only thing that was a bit of a challenge for me was the writing style. It was hard for me to get used to it. What helped me was reading it along with an audio book. It really helped me stay on track with the story.

Ready Player One

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline Amazing.
Where Things Come Back - John Corey Whaley I CAN'T EVEN. This book was too good.
