A week ago today, I posted part 1 of completed series and then on Monday, I posted part 2. This week, I thought I’d do the same thing but with my incomplete series instead. This list consists of series where I haven’t read the rest of the books and the main reason is because the rest of them aren’t out yet.This list is in no particular order. Without further ado, let’s get on to the list.
Genre: YA Romance
Publisher: Simon and Schuester
Rating: 4 stars
Buy the Book: Waterstones, Amazon, The Book Depository
Perfect Couple is #2 in the Superlatives series about seniors at a Florida high school who are selected for their class’s superlative categories in the yearbook, and how the labels change the way they view themselves and alter the course of their lives.
Can your heart be put to a popular vote?
As yearbook photographer, Harper is responsible for capturing those candid moments that make high school memorable. But her own life is anything but picture perfect. Her parents’ bitter divorce has left her wondering what a loving relationship would look like. And ever since the senior class voted her and star quarterback Brody the “Perfect Couple That Never Was,” her friends have been on her case to ask Brody out.
Brody doesn’t lack in female admirers, but Harper can’t see herself with him. He seems confused about why they were matched together, too. They’re total opposites—the last people in the world who would ever be compatible, let alone the “perfect couple.” Yet ever since the class paired the two of them, they’ve found themselves drawn together–first by curiosity, then by an undeniable bond.
The trouble is, though they’re very attracted to each other and both of them admit this, they have a hard time getting along or even communicating clearly. If they’re the perfect couple, this shouldn’t be so difficult! Soon it becomes clear their class was wrong, and they throw in the towel. But after they walk away, both of them feel so changed from making the effort that they can’t forget each other. What if that means this match made in hell is the perfect couple after all?
So another month has come and gone which means it’s wrap up time! I did well this month because I reviewed quite a lot of the books I read! I did however read a few short stories and novellas that are online for everyone to see so I have some I haven’t reviewed. I won’t be saying too much about the books I read this month because most of them have reviews or are short stories but I thought I’d do a reading wrap up anyway. I didn’t read as many books this month as I did in June because I’m feeling slumpish at the moment. However I still thought I’d do one anyway because I feel like blogging.
The first book I finished this month was Landline by Rainbow Rowell. This book came out on the third in the UK and of course, I had pre-ordered the book expecting to arrive over the weekend but it came on the day! I finished it 2 days later and of course I absolutely loved it. I did a review on it so click here if you want to read it. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars and I definitely recommend it if you like Rainbow Rowell.
The next day I read On the Fence by Kasie West in one sitting. I loved this book because it was just a nice simple contemporary. It was fun and light hearted just as I expected. I also did a whole review based on this book so click here if you want to read it. I ended up giving this book 4 out of 5 stars and I recommend it as a fun light hearted read.
Next up I finally finished Just One Day by Gayle Forman. I started this book in June but never finished it because I found it so incredibly boring. I really did not enjoy this book because it was not at all what I expected. Instead of being a fun romance, it turned out to be a self discovery book and I really didn’t enjoy it even though I had expected to. I love If I Stay by Gayle Forman so I’m incredibly disappointed in it. I gave this book 2 out of 5 stars unfortunately.
For some reason I decided to read Just One Night by Gayle Forman next which again took days for me to read despite it being a novella. I again found this incredibly boring and didn’t enjoy it at all. This again got a 2 out of 5 stars from me.
I then read Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis which I got from the lovely people at YABirmingham so thank you very much. I really enjoyed this book because it was a fast paced dystopian read which I loved. I wrote a whole review on this book so click here to go see it. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars and I recently got my hands on the sequel so I shall be reading that very soon.
The next book I read was A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer which is the third book in the Land of Stories series. I absolutely adored this book. It was definitely my favourite out of the series so far. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, I strongly recommend you do. I wrote a whole review on this book so click here to go read this review. I, of course, gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I then read Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally which was the fifth book in the Hundred Oaks series. I really loved this installment and this book was definitely my favourite of the books so far. I strongly recommend this series as a nice fun contemporary series. I again wrote a whole review on this book so click here to go read it. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
I then went on a short story binge and read all these free short stories online from some of my favourite series. I first read The Meeting by Richelle Mead. I didn’t enjoy this much and that was probably because I don’t particularly like Dimitri. I ended up giving this book 2 out of 5 stars. I then read Adrian’s Lost Chapter by Richelle Mead. I loved this book because Adrian is one of my favourite characters so I of course loved reading from his perspective. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. I then read Homecoming by Richelle Mead, another short story about Dimitri. This one I enjoyed slightly more but again didn’t like that much. I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.
I then read the two Throne of Glass short stories which I absolutely loved. The first one I read was the Assassin and the Princess which I absolutely adored and then I read The Assassin and the Captain which I also loved. I love these stories and I can’t wait for Heir of Fire. I gave both of these stories 5 out of 5 stars.
The last short story I read was Vulcans Are Hot by Stephanie Perkins. I absolutely loved this one because it was so amazing and funny. I, of course, gave this one 5 out of 5 stars.
The last book I read this month wasBiggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols. This was another cute contemporary which I flew through. I read it so quickly that I honestly don’t remember much of it so I won’t be writing a review of it. However I loved the main girl because she was different and unique. Will, the love interest, was alright but I didn’t fall in love with him. I’m excited for the rest of the books in this new series by her because I think they will just be nice and fun. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
