I have watched my pile of books-read-in-2010 grow and never have the time to blog about them. In order to be nice to myself this December, I’m doing a big ol’ book dump. I will link to full reviews I agree with from bloggers I follow.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: So many other people had many things to say about the final book in The Hunger Games series, I don’t feel like I can say anything new. It was great. I loved the ending. It had some slow parts; Katniss seemed to spend a lot of time recovering from various things. But I loved it. Liz said it all better at A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy.
The Daughters by Joanna Philbin: daughters of celebrities. Cute, sort of like a cleaner version of Gossip Girl. See Galleysmith for a more in-depth review.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan: awesome. Would not expect anything less. See Abby the Librarian for more.
Nomansland by Lesley Hauge: Dystopian society made up of all-women. I liked the main character more than the book as a whole. Presenting Lenore can tell you more.
Kiss in the Dark by Lauren Henderson: third in the Kiss Me, Kill Me series, which I enjoyed. (Kisses and Lies is the second.) I have no memory of the plot of this book, so Bookshelves of Doom has to be right on the money.
Fallout by Ellen Hopkins (final in Crank series): Told from the viewpoint of three of Kristina’s children, I sometimes had a hard time telling the two daughters apart. I really liked seeing the different members of the family come together despite the pain they each experienced. Carrie’s YA Bookshelf
Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers: a high school girl suffers a downward spiral and no one can help her. Loved it. A lot. Bildungsroman.
Adios, Nirvana by Conrad Wesselhoeft: read on Kindle through NetGalley. I struggled with this one. A teen struggling with life after his brother dies. I feel like it was a decent book. I just couldn’t get into it. I did finish it. You should read a different take on the book at Sarah’s Random Musings.
Okay, that catches me up on a good chunk of the year. I definitely have not been able to read as much this year as I have in years past. I do still have five more that I plan to devote a whole post to on each, not counting what I am currently reading. It will be noce to have these titles off my plate!
