State of the ARC February and a look ahead to March

So again I didn’t do well. I think I only read one ARC? 🤦‍♀️

 

I’m going to really try again in March. But who knows. I’m in two constrictive challenges so it will depend on what I can read.

Netgalley is still my biggest clog. I REALLY need to start reading some of their books.

 

Here is my goal for next month.

It’s a lot but I have faith in myself! 🙂

Late Edelweiss Review! Oops

First I need to apologize to both Edelweiss and Sourcebook Fire for this late review. Life has been a bit hectic. I will strive to do better in the future.

A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

A Danger to Herself and Others

by

Alyssa B. Sheinmel (Goodreads Author)
Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars in this gripping new novel from New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Sheinmel.

Four walls. One window. No way to escape.

Hannah knows there’s been a mistake, She doesn’t need to be institutionalized. What happened to her roommate at that summer program was an accident. As soon as the doctor and judge figure out that she isn’t a danger to herself or others, she can go home to start her senior year. Those college applications aren’t going to write themselves. Until then, she’s determined to win over the staff and earn some privileges so she doesn’t lose her mind to boredom.

Then Lucy arrives. Lucy has her own baggage, and she’s the perfect project to keep Hannah’s focus off all she is missing at home. But Lucy may be the one person who can get Hannah to confront the secrets she’s avoiding-and the dangerous games that landed her in confinement in the first place.

 

REVIEW

I would like to thank Edelweiss and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4.5-49. stars.

This book was amazing! I am obviously feeling stingy this year as really this should be a 5 star but for some reason, I can’t click that last star.

I really loved this story. Hannah was, for the most part, a very relatable character. She had me guessing from the beginning what was happening and eventually what was wrong with her.

I felt so bad for Hannah. Her parents are obviously not good parents. Probably a lot of people would see them as good parents because they took care of her financially but obviously, they lacked in a lot of other areas. 😦

I wasn’t keen on the doctor at first. ‘Lightfoot’. She seemed uninterested and not caring. But she grew on me.

State of the ARC January 2019 and a look ahead into February 2019

So I have already kind of covered my February 2019 ARCs but I didn’t do it properly and neglected to mention anything about January. So here it is.

 

I did badly. I only got 2 arcs done total and I needed to get like 15 done.

 

Here is the pie chart thing:

meta-chart

As you can see more than half my pie is to read total. Another large chunk is Netgalley to Read and the other one is Edelweiss to read. No large portion for read. 😦

 

For Feb. I have many more ARCS that are due. Let’s see how I’ll do next month. Wish me luck!

The Cerulean by Amy Ewing

This was a 4.5 for me. Review to come.

Okay so this is my first time writing a non spoiler review. Not sure if it will still contain spoilers so I’ll caution any readers now.

Sera was an amazing MC. I absolutely loved her. I loved her so much I couldn’t see any flaws in her but she was also not a Mary Sue character. Take from that what you will.

There were a lot of POV’s in this book and that is one of the main reasons it got knocked down from a 5 to a 4 1/2. While I do deem it essential I don’t like multiple POV’s. Hence the 1/2 star mark down.

Now on to the other POV’s. Oh and before I forget this story also has multiple parts. Mostly involving a POV change. Anyway. No wait. It might be spoilery. Shoot. NM.

The world building was wonderful. It left me with a lot of questions as I was reading but it was always answered. So it left me hanging by my fingertips often. Oh and fair warning the ending will make you desperate for the next book. lol.

Also I could do a 5 paragraph gush about the cover! OMG. It is an absolutely amazing cover. Whoever designed it I give you 5 thumbs up. It’s what really drew me to this book in the first place. That and then the author and then the plot.
