Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. Actually I purchased this book because I wanted to read Archenemies, so not to irritate Paige or Craig by reading books out of order I had to read this one before reading the second one. Which I am famous for doing because I buy a lot of books because I like the cover. 🀣🀣🀣 All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Renegades by Marissa Meyer. I am a superhero fan, well not superhero fan but a supervillian fan. However, they are like the chicken and the egg, you can’t have one without the other. This book was right up my alley with a girl that has superhero powers but is anonymous enough she can fool both the villains and the superheroes to make them all believe she is one of them. Truthfully though, Nova has her own motives and her own reasons for hating superheroes. A deep family hatred that is rooted in her past. Her quest for vengeance makes her question does she have what it takes to continue down the path she is on.

Harry’s Trees by Jon Cohen

I checked out this book from the local library to read with #modernmrsdarcy Bookclub. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Harry’s Trees by Jon Cohen. How do you take life’s tragedies and make them magical adventures? You find a Birch tree in Pennsylvania, a little girl, and a book that should not have existed and you watch the magic unfold before your very eyes. This book is beautifully well written and very descriptive of any kind of tree you can think of and oh the tragedy in this book is so heart wrenching. The idea of saving a public library and a little girl with magical dreams in a different way was refreshing. I just didn’t love it. At times I felt the book would just go on and on with no ending. Other times I felt I was sure I was almost done with it. All in all I enjoyed the reading experience just didn’t fall head over heels for the book.

Golden State by Ben H Winters

I purchased this book from @bookofthemonth to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Golden State by Ben H Winters. This dystopian novel will suck you into it’s mystery and action. It is stories inside of stories buildt upon stories of what the truth is known to be. Laszlo Ratesic has lived his life based on truth. Facts that are concrete and absolute. But in two days his world comes crashing down around him and it takes a very wrong turn for him to realize truth is based on perception not buildt on facts. While this book wrapped me in a world unknown I didn’t complete enjoy the twist at the end. It does bring some closure to the book just not in a way I expected.

You get to choose your own ending! Your reflection all wrapped up in a happy ending! A bible study that lets you be the author what an awesome idea!
