What I’m Currently Reading

In December 2020


My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

I’ve only read Rainbow Rowel’s short story Midnights, I’ll give the story a 5/5. I rooted for the main couple because they were just too cute! The only thing I didn’t like about the romance was how the main guy kept kissing different girls even though he presumably liked the main character?!? TF



North Child by Edith Pattou

I really like the concept of this book and I’m excited to read further into than I have (I’m about 50 pages in). In this world, the direction of where you were born determines the type of person you are. The mother learns that if she borns a pure North born, they’ll die a cold death. So far: 4/5.



Winterhouse by Ben Guterson

I was enjoying this book but then I put it down a few weeks ago… and haven’t picked it back up. I’m working on it. My rating so far: 3.5/5. Good but I have a feeling I know where it’s going.
