The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart – 4 stars
Homecoming by Kass Morgan – 4 stars
City Love by Susane Colasanti  – 1 star
Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein – 3 stars

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to read too many books this month due to my busy schedule. I’ll definitely try to make up for it in May!

Since Yallwest was approaching swiftly, I really wanted to finish my TBR I had created for it. I rented The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks from the library last summer but had to return it since I never got around to it reading. E. Lockhart was on my list of authors to meet so I rented it again and actually read it this time! The book was like a giant feminist rant, and I loved it. This was definitely different from the Lockhart’s We Were Liars but still had her style in it.

I also picked up Homecoming this month. I really wanted to finish the Kass Morgan’s series since I was also planning on meeting her as well. Again, the books and tv shows are completely different. However, they are still fit their separate mediums. I thought the last book ended nicely; it was left where a fourth book could be added, but it could also be left alone. Best part will always be Bellamy and Clarke. I still cannot get over cannon BELLARKE.

I received City Love as a part of the promotion package. The book was okay. You can read my review here. I won an ARC of Becoming Jinn in a giveaway during a twitter chat with the author. You can read my review of Becoming Jinn here.

Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise – 5 stars
Avatar the Last Airbender: The Search – 5 stars
Avatar the Last Airbender: The Rift – 5 stars

I haven’t really read any graphic novels before so I don’t know how these rank against others, but I did enjoy them as add-ons to the tv show. My brother and I loved watching Avatar: The Last Airbender so for Christmas and his birthday, I bought him the three bind ups of the graphic novels. When I realized that the three authors were going to be at Yallwest, I decided to get them signed for him. I wanted to read them as well since I was now going to meet the authors. These books were about 200 pages each, but since they’re graphic novels, I read all three in about one day. I enjoyed them and definitely recommend them for any fans of the show. The Search was probably my favorite out of the three since it deals with Zuko’s mother, which was one of the biggest unsolved mysteries/storylines in the whole tv series.
