Books I Finished

We Still BelongWe Still Belong by Christine Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a great read and it was so cool how the story took place over only a day! So many great topics were addressed-indigenous peoples day, family, culture, friendship-as well as some fun topics (first love).

I loved each of these books, but to pick a favorite would be…WE STILL BELONG by Christine Day. This was an unexpected romance full of depth. I loved it.

Young Adult

House of MarionneHouse of Marionne by J. Elle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this dark fantasy of forbidden magic and mystery. The magic school and the magic system were amazing and I loved the characters! It’s going to be a great series!

Vampires of El NorteVampires of El Norte by Isabel Cañas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting read that had so much going for it-fantasy/historical, romance, horror. A great mix of everything! I listened to the audio and felt it was done very well.

My goals for this week include finishing WARRIOR GIRL UNEARTHED because I have my book club meeting this Sunday. I also hope to pick up MAGIC WORDS and UNPREGNANT as well. The others are a bonus :).
