Sadie by Courtney Summers34810320

Rating: 4 stars

I read most of this novel on audiobook while reading along and it was very well done. I think listening to the audiobook made me feel more connected to it and it helped make it feel more real and raw. If you’re looking for a mystery, attention-grabbing novel, read this one.

Rating: 4 stars

I don’t read as much poetry novels as I am interested in them. I received this as a lovely Christmas present from a friend and I really enjoyed this collection. I connected with a lot of them, and some didn’t but I’m so lucky to have read it because these will have some to keep as reminders in the future.

Rating: 4 stars

This was one of three books I asked for Christmas, and  I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed. I didn’t know what to expect when going into this because I knew it wasn’t just another poetry novel. This book was more than that, it was something that I needed to hear, and reminders that I need to think about when I wake up and starting my day, and what to think about when I go to sleep. This book is something that I’ll need in the future.

I have read about 180 pages in this novel. I have enjoyed what I have read so far, as I usually do about Cassandra Clare novels. I plan to continue this novel into the new year.




I also am taking two English classes that are focusing on short stories and some novels, and overall writings, so I have come up with a list of short stories that I’ve read during this month. If you have read any of them, let me know down in the comments, or contact me; And that goes as well if you would like to know my thoughts on any of these stories and/or novels.
