211. Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
16130Firstly, let it be known I’m not a freak of nature for reading this in less than two days. I feel like my biggest problem is that the author would name something and then explained it a couple of sentences later after you no longer are as interested in it. he also seems to jump around a bit according to timeline; however, it does work because he favored by topic chapters but, it made the work seem to be all over the place.

212. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
26114463To say this books was hard to get into is an understatement, but once it picked up, it picked up. Otherwise, I think trying to figure out what to do about the footnotes was my biggest trouble.

213. I Am Malala by  Malala Yousafzai
17851885Rating memoirs has always been tricky for me. While the part of me was bored at parts while reading this, I found this book too important to just mark as a 3 star read.

217. The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon
28763485I’ll be honest, I was skeptical about the “same day meeting and falling in love” story, but this book was much more than that

220. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
7445Intense. Sometimes hard to read, but also feels overly symbolic at times.
Rating: 4/5 stars

221. In the Country We Love by Diane Guerrero
25666051a memoir about the controversial topic of immigration that the author wished she had; very important. Not overflowing with how the author became a star or her stardom.

223. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
84981 This is one of those shameful, “I saw the movie first” books; however, I really enjoyed it. The ending has me wondering what I’d choose if I was given the same choice as Winnie.

226. Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt
25893681This was informative. I was a little disappointed in how I didn’t really enjoy the parts about the family this was about as I did everything else in it.

227. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
14050I first read this in 2009 and still feel about a four star is what I should rate it. The time-traveling elements had a lot of problems, but I was invested, once again like my sixteen year old self, in the romance.

228.The Ruins of of Gorlan by John Flanagan

229. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
6547258 Maybe it was the hype, maybe it was the length before anything super interesting happened. I’ll probably need to revisit this another time to be sure of how I feel.

231. Gena/Finn by Hannah Moskowitz and Kat Helgeson
19254725 This felt like two different books were thrown together then given a misleading premise. However, I did enjoy the fandom aspects of it.

236. Style by Chelsea M. Cameron
30332310 the romance did move a bit fast, but it’s acceptable because otherwise lots of time would have needed to have been jumped through. really stinking cute.
it took me a lot longer than it should have that the title of this book could also be their ship name.

238. Morning Star by Pierce Brown
18966806This was a great book, one of my favorite sci-fi series and I like that the ending set up for the second series that he is writing in this world; however, I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had read the whole series closer together.

239. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
7150991Reread. So I reread this as I own it still, but I could not remember how I felt about it originally. There’s not much else to say really, it’s a nice fluffy contemporary.
