Reviews:

That's Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly Kingsbane by Claire Legrand Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

  • That's Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger - An absolutely incredible story about the affects of trauma after a school shooting, and how nobody really knows what a survivor experienced. Powerful and heartbreaking.
  • Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly - I was quite disappointed with this. Not a huge deal happens in the great scheme of things, and Isabelle and Tavi were never that cruel. Plus it felt like it was written for a MG audience, but yet the content was very much YA. Really not for me, sadly.
  • Kingsbane by Claire Legrand - An absolutely explosive and addictive sequel to Furyborn, with jaw-dropping twists! I loved it, and I am now dying for the final book in the trilogy!
  • Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto - This was incredible! It brought me right back to when I first fell in love with reading. Fantastic worldbuilding, wonderful characters, and an intriguing story!
