Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3)
Maggie Stiefvater

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis:


There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.



Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.




The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.




Friends can betray.

Mothers can disappear.

Visions can mislead.

Certainties can unravel.
Thoughts:

I may actually kidnap Maggie and make her write all my novel ideas-- of course I won't because, that would be illegal. Although, I do love how each book is slowly turning the notch up just that little more. I feel tense just thinking that this could be it for Gansey come The Raven King.

Crap!

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1)
Sarah J. Maas

⭐⭐⭐

Synopsis:

Feyre is a huntress.


She thinks nothing of slaughtering a wolf to capture its prey. But, like all mortals, she fears what lingers mercilessly beyond the forest. And she will learn that taking the life of a magical creature comes at a high price...



Imprisoned in an enchanted court in her enemy's kingdom, Feyre is free to roam but forbidden to escape. Her captor's body bears the scars of fighting, and his face is always masked - but his piercing stare draws her ever closer. As Feyre's feeling for Tamlin begin to burn through every warning she's been told about his kind, an ancient, wicked shadow grows.




Feyre must find a way to break a spell, or lose her heart forever.



Thoughts:


In all honestly I just have never like Tamlin. Felt kind of alone for the past year in my own little hatred bubble. I think it's just Tamlin has ruined this whole novel for me, hense the drop from 4.5 stars to just a 3 star rating. Sorry Maas!
Plus, the romance started to make me feel too tacky; I prefer my romance sub-plotted please!

Sarah J. Maas

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

Oh dear! Not as a great reading month as I had anticipated although, I have had a lot going on with my education part of life. 
The books I had read were pretty great so I guess that makes up for it.
