Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally – 4 stars
Long Way Home by Katie McGarry – 3.5 stars
The Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace – 4.5 stars
Miranda Kenneally is one of my auto-buy authors. I adore her Hundred Oaks series, and I am sad that Coming Up for Air is the final book in it. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I loved it! Overall, Coming Up for Air is a strong conclusion to Miranda Kenneally’s Hundred Oaks series. If you haven’t checked this series out yet, it is a must read! If you’re already a fan, you will love this latest addition and adore the bonus epilogue at the end. Read my full review here!
I had high expectations for Long Way Home since Chevy and Violet were introduced in the previous Thunder Road novels, and I was disappointed that it fell short of them. It was good, but just different from what I was expecting (which is my fault, not the author’s). I did enjoy Violet and Chevy’s development of their relationship and the strength of Violet’s character. Full review here.
Even though I am not the biggest fan of poetry, I could not put down the princess saves herself in this one as soon as I picked it up. The poems were short but powerful, and I couldn’t help but feel a connection, even though I personally had not gone through what the author has. It was a very emotional and empowering read, and I think it should be a must read for teenage girls. Read my full review here!
