Smile - Raina Telgemeier This was a cute, quick read that I enjoyed. I read this fairly quickly so I am happy I picked this up from the library instead of buying it.

To Be Perfectly Honest: A Novel Based on an Untrue Story - Sonya Sones This book kept me on my toes and I loved every second of it. This novel was written in verse which made it a quick and easy read. I would recommend this book mostly to young adult readers, but I only regret putting off reading it for so long.

The Program - Suzanne Young So many thoughts going through my head ... I'm going to need a few days to collect my thoughts on this book. There were parts of this book that broke my heart and made me sick to my stomach. I didn't want to keep reading, but I also didn't want to stop. This book played with my emotions, but in the end I am glad I had picked it up.

The Summer I Turned Pretty - Jenny Han I didn't think I would enjoy this at first, but I really loved it! Such a cute, and light contemporary read!

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith This book really played with my emotions. It made me bored, then excited, then frustrated, then bubbly, and finally satisfied. This might be my favorite contemporary that I have ever read. I don't know if it is the fact that the main characters were my age, or the fact that this seems more realistic and not so fairy-tale or far-fetched, but I loved it. I definitely swooned over this book, and found myself hugging it when I finished it.

Sweet Little Lies - Lauren Conrad This book was just okay for me, it is not the best sequel I have ever read. I will be reading the third book in this trilogy, but not for a while. I found the plot to be kind of slow and boring.
The Best and Hardest Thing - Pat Brisson There wasn't enough character development for this to be a good book (in my opinion)
We All Fall Down - Eric Walters Beautifully written book, that makes me cry every time. No review for this one, as it is based on true events. RIP victims of 9/11
Macbeth - William Shakespeare All of the works I have read by Shakespeare, Macbeth is definitely one of my favourites! So much tragedy, secrets, death, and a brilliant fight for power! This is a re-read for me, and it wasn't disappointing.
Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles THAT ENDING THOUGH. Hated it at first, but definitely got better!
Life as It Comes - Anne-Laure Bondoux This book was just okay for me. It wasn't the worst book I've ever read, but it wasn't even close to being the best.
Dead to You - Lisa McMann Oh my god... Speechless. This book made me so emotional, I could barely control it. Powerful story, but some parts seemed rushed, and a character in particular bothered me to no end.
