just finished

As you can see, I have been reading some drastically different books lately. On Monday, I finished my first middle grade book of the year, ANA MARIA REYES DOES NOT LIVE IN A CASTLE. It’s about a sixth grade girl whose ultimate goal is to get into a super fancy school she’s not sure her parents can afford, and about how she changes from being kind of a snob to a more caring person. I absolutely loved this book; it was so incredibly well-written, and made me realize that maybe the reason I haven’t liked some of the MG I’ve read before was because it just wasn’t good writing, not just that it was too young for me. I loved watching Ana Maria’s journey and getting to know her crazy and big family, and watching her form friendships and become a better person.

I also finished my first YA of the year, ALL THE STARS AND TEETH, which is a very bloody and dark pirate fantasy. I enjoyed it until about the halfway point. Well, I guess I somewhat enjoyed it after the halfway point, but once the minor romance hit I found myself losing interest. I would’ve much preferred a romance between Amora and the mermaid, but I knew going in she’d probably fall for the guy, but I just didn’t feel like they had any chemistry and there wasn’t any buildup to their romance. The romance is only a very minor part of the story, but honestly, this would’ve been a way better book without any romance at all.

Yesterday I started my second queer book of the year, Ciara Smyth’s June 2020 release, THE FALLING IN LOVE MONTAGE. I am really enjoying it so far because Saorsie is so snappy. I’m also very here for the trope of people making a no dating rule and then there’s that one person to get under their skin.

My next read for Swiftathon will be my pick for the “I Forgot You Existed” prompt of a backlist book. I’m hoping I don’t DNF this one like I’ve done most of my reads this year :/
