A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

Rating: 4.5/5 | OK, so A Court of Thorns and Roses was meh. It was fine. Feyre drove me nuts, but I dealt with it for the world-building. Well, I am SO glad that I stuck with this trilogy, because A Court of Mist and Fury was A GAZILLION TIMES BETTER. Such a good read. Engrossing, heart-wrenching, surprising, and exciting.

Miracle Creek

Miracle Creek

Rating: 4/5 | Miracle Creek was a great read. An intriguing whodunnit with so many layers to the crime and to the entire cast of characters, it kept me guessing — suspecting, but not knowing — all the way up until the end. And it also broke my heart and showed real humanity throughout. (Click the post to read more.)

Rating: 3.5/5 | This book was, like, fine. The world-building was good and kept me intrigued, and there was just enough good to keep me hooked and willing to read the next story (which has so far proved to be totally worth 1/3 of the way into book two), but there were also some things that made me go *le sigh, YA fantasy, amiright?* (Click the post to read more.)

Farsighted: How We Make the Decisions That Matter the Most

Farsighted: How We Make the Decisions That Matter the Most

Rating: 4/5 | I read Farsighted as part of my subscription to the Next Big Idea Club. It was fun to have it paired with Joyful, which was about the small things, because Farsighted is about the big things. Big, important decisions and the ways you can ensure that you're making the best choices possible. (Click the post to read more.)
