Hello everyone!

It's Judy here, with another monthly book-tastic post! Me and Lena will be taking turns each month to tell you all about the books we've been getting into recently.

Loving the contrast between the two covers!

Mockingjay (from the Hunger Games series) - Suzanne Collins ★★★★☆
As a fan of the Hunger Games, it was kind of sad to read the last book knowing that the extraordinary adventure that you've experienced will end once you turn the last page. But nevertheless, the novel was packed with action as well as tear-jerking moments. *four note whistle* 

House Rules - Jodi Picoult ★★★★★
I love how most of Picoult's books are written with different point of views, and this one is no exception. You really get to see inside of the characters minds and try to figure out the mystery yourself!

Girl Online - Zoe Sugg, Siobhan Curham ★★★☆☆
Note: I know Lena has already done a review on this book, but I thought I'd just chuck it in and write what I thought about it :)
So there's been a lot of controversy on who actually wrote the book, but we'll put that to the side for the moment. Girl Online is the typical teenage romance novel where the socially awkward girl meets the hot, mysterious boy and fall in love. It is very cliché, but don't we all enjoy a "lovey dovey" book once in a while?

The Scorch Trials (from the Maze Runner series) - James Dashner ★★★☆☆
Continuing my journey into the wonderful land of mazes and deadly diseases (note sarcasm), I was more than eager to continue reading. Yes, this book was filled with action and very hard obstacles (e.g. replace the maze with a hot, dry desert this time), but I didn't enjoy it as much as The Maze Runner. Maybe it's because of the new array of characters introduced, or the fact that there are no more grievers... I'm not really sure.

Make sure to check out Goodreads for more books n' stuff!


Now go venture out into the world and read a book!
