What I've read recently

My rating: 3 1/2 to 4 stars out of 5
I would say that this book probably would be a 3 star book without that ending, I didn't see it coming at all. I enjoyed how the story was told from 3 different people's perspective and how they all weaved together. I wouldn't read it again but it was a quick, easy read that I ended up enjoying.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I absolutely loved this one!  I couldn't put it down.  I ended up reading it in two days.  It was such a fun, light-hearted story with realistic characters, that I was hooked.  So many of the characters could have been my friends in real life!  I had heard so many good things about this one, that I was hoping I wouldn't be let down.  This is one I could see myself reading again one day.  I am really looking forward to reading Fangirl soon (I just bought it!)



My rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Uggghh, this book!  I almost abandoned it multiple times.  The story line just got more and more unbelievable and far-fetched.  It was definitely not one that I would recommend to anyone, but also not the absolute worst book I've ever read.



My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I had heard so many amazing things about this book so I knew I wanted to read this one as soon as I could.  And I was not disappointed.  I have never cried so hard over a book in my entire life!  You will definitely want to read this one with tissues on hand.  I can't tell you why I took away a star unless you've already read it, I don't want to give away any details!  So if you've read it, message me so I can't talk about it!! haha!

My rating: 2 out of 5 stars
I went into this book thinking it was going to be more of a scary ghost story, and found that it ended up being more of a romance. Which wouldn't have been quite as bad if it didn't seem so forced and the insta-love had me rolling eyes.

( I received a copy of Until You're Mine from Blogging For Books and also The After House from NetGalley for free for review, however all opinions are my own)


What have you been reading lately?  If you are on Goodreads, we should be friends! ;-)

  1. Have you read other Jennifer Weiner books? Because I read one a long time ago and I can't remember if I liked it or not. But good to know not to pick this one up!

  3. I also cried really hard at Me Before You. I loved it.


    Most Jennifer Weiner books I've tried have annoyed me so I stopped trying with her.

  4. Best Friends Forever was the first Jennifer Weiner book that I've read, but I really wasn't impressed at all. It was so all over the place and ridiculous. I only tried it because so many people seemed to like her books.


    Me Before You was really good. I still don't think I'm over it yet. lol! I'm still a little mad/sad

  5. Wasn't it good! I have another Jojo Moyes book to read: One Plus One, that I am really excited about. Hopefully this one doesn't break my heart, hahaha! I will have to look up Rick Mofina!

  6. I haven't read any of her others, but friends of mine seemed to love her so I gave this one a shot. I may give another one of her a try eventually but I was not a huge fan of this one at all. It just seemed a little too ridiculous. lol

  9. haha me too! It was so bad that my 2 year old got concerned and came over with her teddy bear for me to cuddle.


    Attachments was really cute! I liked it a lot. I can't wait to read Fangirl!

  12. Me Before You and Attachments were both excellent!!! I know that I read Best Friends Forever a few years ago and I'm pretty sure I didn't love it which is why I can't remember anything about it (even with reading the Goodreads summary!).

  13. I just reserved Attachments in the library! Can't wait.

  16. Great post! I love book reviews, might have to check some of these out :)

  17. Me Before You is next on my reading list! I've also seen so many great reviews so I want to know what all of the buzz is about. I've never read any books by that author so I don't really know what to expect from it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I added Until You're Mine from your review. I kinda like psycho thrillers with surprise endings, and it sounds like one I'd read. Attachments was adorable! Me Before You is on my shelf at home...waiting...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really liked Attachments too, the characters were so likeable. I was a little disappointed with Me Before You maybe because I was expecting more or a different ending.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Now I'm curious why you took away a star from Me Before You! (Though to be honest, I think I gave it 4 stars too even though it's one of my top books to recommend.) I loved Attachments as well!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just sent you an email about it! haha! I really did love the book and it probably deserved 5 stars buuuut....yeah. lol! I really loved Attachments! I can't wait to start Fangirl!

    ReplyDelete
  22. haha I know what you mean about Me Before You which is why I ended up giving it 4 stars instead of 5. Attachments was so good, I really looking forward to starting Fangirl!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I thought Attachments was super cute too! I added a few of her other books to my Goodreads as soon as I finished Attachments because I enjoyed it so much. lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had never read anything from Jojo Moyes either and Me Before You was my first one. Make sure you have a box of tissues ready, you are going to need it! haha! I won One Plus One (her newest book) from a giveaway so I'm excited to start that one soon

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks so much! I really enjoyed Attachments and Me Before You A LOT! I would definitely recommend either of those

    ReplyDelete
  26. haha yeah, I did pretty good with my reading this month. I think it's because I downloaded the Kindle app and started reading books on my phone. lol! I never remember to bring a book with me but I always have my phone. lol

  27. I've heard such great things about Jennifer Weiner books that I was so surprised that I didn't enjoy this one. I may give her a try again one day, but I just couldn't get into this one. Attachments and Me Before You were both so good! I really enjoyed them a lot. Now I just have to decide if I want to read One Plus One or Fangirl next....eek! lol

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ohhhh I hope you love it as much as I did! It's so cute

    ReplyDelete
  29. I loved Attachments and Me Before You so much! I just have to decide between Fangirl and One Plus One for my next read... Eeek! That's a tough one! I just could not get into Best Friends Forever at all. I was surprised because I heard so many great things about her

    ReplyDelete
  30. I definitely would recommend Attachments or Me Before You both are such great stories, but be prepared to cry your eyes out for Me Before You! lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have yet to read a Jojo Moyes books but want to! And can't wait to hear what you think of Fangirl because it's one of my favorites! I agree that the characters in Attachments were so real that I'd totally be friends with any of them!

  32. Me Before You is on my nightstand right now! I also have Best Friends Forever, but sounds like I should skip it. I hate unbelievable stories.

    ReplyDelete

  35. Me Before You was definitely a good one but it is a big tearjerker. I wasn't prepared for that part. lol Attachments was so good, I can't wait to start Fangirl!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Me Before You is really good, but I wasn't prepared for it to be so heartbreaking. I had no idea, I thought it was just going to be the usual love story. I am so surprised that I'm doing so well with my reading challenge! I'm going to have to pick a higher number for next year, I guess. lol!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You will love Me Before You, just make sure you have your tissues waiting. lol! I really didn't care for Best Friends forever at all...There were multiple times in the story when I wanted to scream "who actually does that?!" haha!

  38. I haven't started Fangirl yet but I'm excited to start that one. Everyone seems to love it!
