DNF'ing Books!

DNF'ing: When It's Time to DNF I'm definitely someone who has a hard time DNF'ing books. I feel like once I start a book, I have to finish it, but I when I go to write my review and I rate the book two or one star, I ask myself why I read the book in the first place. This year, I finally decided to start DNF'ing books and even ARCs that I'm not enjoying, and it is just so freeing! So far this year, I've have not rated a single book one star, the lowest have been two stars, but I only read them because I was enjoying the story or I didn't like the writing. So now that I know the freedom of DNF'ing books, I want to tell other bookworms about DNF'ing.

At what page should I stop reading? You can stop reading the book at any point! Not every book you pick up is going to be a five or four star read. Most people go around 100 pages before DNF'ing, but I feel like I'm committed at that point, so I usually go around 30 or 50 pages before I stop re…

February Wrap-up!

Evermore by Sara Holland ★★ I loved Everless and I was absolutely heartbroken by the cliffhanger and I have to say, I felt like this sequel was rushed. I did like Jules and Liam's relationship, but other then that it just fell short. ...................................................................................................................................................
Archenemies by Marissa Meyer This sequel was fast paced and I loved everything about it! It seemed to have everything Renegades was missing! I cannot wait for Supernova! ..................................................................................................................................................

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton Review

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton ★★★★ Camellia Beauregard is a Belle. In the opulent world of Orléans, Belles are revered, for they control Beauty, and Beauty is a commodity coveted above all else. In Orléans, the people are born gray, they are born damned, and only with the help of a Belle and her talents can they transform and be made beautiful.

But it’s not enough for Camellia to be just a Belle. She wants to be the favorite—the Belle chosen by the Queen of Orléans to live in the royal palace, to tend to the royal family and their court, to be recognized as the most talented Belle in the land. But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favorite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that the very essence of her existence is a lie—that her powers are far greater, and could be more dangerous, than she ever imagined. And when the queen asks Camellia to risk …

Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills Review

Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills For Sophie, small town life has never felt small. With her four best friends—loving, infuriating, and all she could ever ask for—she can weather any storm. But when Sophie’s beloved Acadia High School marching band is selected to march in the upcoming Rose Parade, it’s her job to get them all the way to LA. Her plan? To persuade country singer Megan Pleasant, their Midwestern town’s only claim to fame, to come back to Acadia to headline a fundraising festival.
The only problem is that Megan has very publicly sworn never to return.
What ensues is a journey filled with long-kept secrets, hidden heartbreaks, and revelations that could change everything—along with a possible fifth best friend: a new guy with a magnetic smile and secrets of his own.

January Wrap-up!

This was definitely a month where more then half my reads were ARCs (even though there were tons of new releases this month) and I have to say, some of them disappointed me. I did read a few books that I adored.

Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter The whole reason I picked this book up was because the book description exactly 
"Maddie still really wants to kill Logan. But she has to save him first." and was not was the actual book was about. Maddie only hated Logan, she never wanted to kill him. Overall, I felt deceived by the title and wanted more from the book.

Nick and June Were Here by Shalanda Stanley ARC Review

Nick and June Were Here by Shalanda Stanley Nick and June were best friends for years, until their relationship suddenly turned into something more. Now, June is coping with a new diagnosis of schizophrenia, a secret she asked Nick to keep for too long. Between managing her symptoms and her parents, June is just trying to keep it together. Nick is a reluctant car thief, supporting his aunt with the money and focusing on his art whenever he can.

But when June's condition sends her to the hospital and Nick's latest crime threatens to land him in prison, the two decide to run away. When the world is trying to tear them apart, can Nick and June find a way to stay together? 

............................................................................................ My Thoughts!
This was definitely a different take on mental illness. When you deal with schizophrenia in books, they usually don't actual have the words that some people struggle with.

Nick was a strange character, the…
