Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#BecRereads2018

The first time I read this series, I devoured the whole thing so fast, that I honestly wasn’t sure which events occurred in book one, so it was interesting to reread this.

I still absolutely love this world, and my previous review still stands.

PREVIOUS REVIEW:
After I read this novel, I couldn’t write for days. The story itself is incredible, but it’s the way Veronica Rossi writes that astounds me. Every sentence is so gorgeous and delicious. I want to breath them in, drink them down, stare at them forever. If I could read a piece of artwork, I feel sure it would read like this.

I know I should be telling you about the plot, which is amazing, the characters, who rocked my world, and the setting, which is brilliant. I’m not going to though. What gripped me the most about this novel was the complexity in emotions that it both presented and evoked in me. The way it wrapped its long fingers around my soul and pulled me down, into not just the writing but into the whole gorgeous concept, totally delighted me.

It has been almost four months since I read the first two books and one of the novellas, but I still think about this book fondly and frequently recommend it at my library.

Go read it now. I’m wrong about a lot of things but not this.


Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2)Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#BecRereads2018

Upon rereading this book, I’ve realized it’s a second novel where more seems to happen in book two than what even happened in book one. I really like that. It keeps things interesting and doesn’t hestiate to take characters in unexpected directions.

Roar and Liv (Under the Never Sky, #0.5)Roar and Liv by Veronica Rossi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#BecRereads2018

So I’m back rereading this one, and I still love it. Roar is one of my favorite characters in this series, and it’s nice to know his backstory with Liv, especially as she’s frequently mentioned by rarely featured in the series.

PREVIOUS REVIEW:
I adore Roar and Liv. I can’t get enough of them, and I love that this novella focused on them. It was well-written and thoroughly enjoyable.

Buy it. You won’t regret it. I imagine I’ll read it again some day.


Brooke (Under the Never Sky, #2.5)Brooke by Veronica Rossi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#BecRereads2018

I enjoyed rereading this novella about Brooke, who is an easy to misunderstand side character in the UTNS series. She has a fierce, snarky exterior that makes it easy to overlook her hardships and hurts, which are what make her more human. For that reason, I think this is a necessary read for anyone who enjoys the series.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#BecRereads2018

Wow. Talk about an intense conclusion to a 7 book journey. I still enjoy how the students come into their own in this story. I miss the time spent at Hogwarts, but it is nice to see Harry, Ron, and Hermione strike out on their own and try to figure things out without a safety net.

Despite the length, I read this straight through (again), because it’s a hard story to stop mid-stream. There’s just so much tension and uncertainty that I fret endlessly, despite already knowing how it ends.

I love this series. I don’t think I will ever have read it enough times to satisfy myself. I don’t even care that every time I reread it means I’m not reading 7 new books, because I don’t miss the worlds I don’t know. But I do miss this world, especially when I let too many years pass before rereading it again.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#BecRereads2018

I forgot how clever and amusing this book is, despite some of the heaviness that accompanies it. Well, forgot may be the wrong word. This book just happens to be squashed between my favorite book and the last book, so I think I may have somewhat overlooked how many interesting and important events occur in this story.

It was a pleasure to reread this, and I think of all the 7 books, this is the book I’ve read the least number of times, which is kind of a shame, since I really do enjoy it.

In Focus Series by Megan Erickson

Focus on Me (In Focus #2)Focus on Me by Megan Erickson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This M/M NAroad trip romance has a lot of depth, deals with some serious issues, and still has fun and lighthearted moments. I picked it up, because I love the characters Megan Erickson writes. I read the first book in the series last year, so I was happy when I found out that I could get the next 3 books on audio.

Out of Frame (In Focus #3)Out of Frame by Megan Erickson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This M/M NA romance takes place on a cruise ship, as part of a reality show, both of which are fun elements, but it still has a serious edge. Quinn is adorable and JR is complicated, which makes for a good story.

Overexposed (In Focus, #4)Overexposed by Megan Erickson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This NA romance (M/M) is thoroughly enjoyable and includes a long hiking trip, a charming chatty Levi, and a quiet, caring Thad. It also introduced me to the term demisexual, which I had never heard of before, so I appreciated that it expanded my awareness.
