February Update.

Yay! Am now 1/6 done with a post about each book 🙂
This month I read a total of 27 books, which isn’t that bad considering it’s almost a book a day (and I do have a book I’m currently reading that has about 150 pages left so I might finish that book later tonight).
Hopefully I can keep up with this reading binge I have been on for the past 3 months. If I do I might actually be able to read 365 books this year which would be amazing since I have never done that.
Anyways.
Sorry for the rambling,

Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown

“Kendra has always felt overshadowed by her older brother, Grayson, whose OCD forces him to live a life of carefully coordinated routines. The only way Kendra can stand out next to Grayson is to be perfect, and she has perfection down to an art — until a cheating scandal threatens her flawless reputation.Behind the wheel of her car, with Grayson asleep beside her, Kendra decides to drive away from it all — with enough distance, maybe she’ll be able to figure everything out. But eventually, Kendra must stop running and come to terms with herself, her brother, and her past.With undeniable grace and humor, acclaimed author Jennifer Brown explores OCD, the pressure for perfection, and the emotional highs and lows of a complex sibling relationship.” -Goodreads.com

 

So for about the first half of Perfect Escape I just felt “meh” about it, it was ok but I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters… but I loved the ending so much, I don’t think I will reread it again but the ending is what stuck with me.

4 stars.

Sever by Lauren DeStefano

“Time is running out for Rhine in this conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Chemical Garden Trilogy.
With the clock ticking until the virus takes its toll, Rhine is desperate for answers. After enduring Vaughn’s worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed. She takes refuge in his dilapidated house, though the people she left behind refuse to stay in the past. While Gabriel haunts Rhine’s memories, Cecily is determined to be at Rhine’s side, even if Linden’s feelings are still caught between them.
Meanwhile, Rowan’s growing involvement in an underground resistance compels Rhine to reach him before he does something that cannot be undone. But what she discovers along the way has alarming implications for her future—and about the past her parents never had the chance to explain.
In this breathtaking conclusion to Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy, everything Rhine knows to be true will be irrevocably shattered.” -Goodreads.com

Ok, so when I started Sever I actually had no idea what it was going to be about, I remembered how the last  book ended but I actually hadn’t read the back of the dust jacket or the inside it before reading it. The only “hints” I had was the things on the book cover since I already knew that the different objects on it are in the book (Which how freaking cool is that???). I loved how Sever picks up pretty much right after Fever, and it flowed really well. There is so much I’m not saying on here though because I really am trying not to ruin books on here, especially the last in a series *wimpers* (which is also harder due to the fact that my main book buddy stilllllll hasn’t read it, I know it has only been out a few days but stilllll). Anyways… I also loved in the book though was how everything was pretty much connected, some I saw coming but a whole lot I didn’t (Yippie for book surprises!). So overall a fantastic conclusion to a amazing series, even though there was some certain parts I did not like at all… and had to reread to make sure that that truly just happened…

5 stars.
