May 2015 Books Completed

Graduation and Book Expo prep made this month’s reading list pretty short. I’m hoping to catch up in June before the June 30 middle of the year!

The Last Ride of Caleb O’Toole by Eric Pierpont. A middle-grade historical adventure I read for my internship. Not my most favorite MG read, but solid writing, definitely recommended for kids who love the Oregon Trail computer games. 3 out of 5 stars

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. A re-read of an old favorite for the Girls in Capes Book Club. There are some issues on my end in terms of the book’s slightly inconsistent message, but as far as vampire romances go, this is as far as it gets for me. 3 out of 5 stars

Who Could That Be at This Hour? by Lemony Snicket. A Book Expo America title. Not as good as A Series of Unfortunate Events, but not too bad. Relies a bit heavily on wordplay and may go over a younger reader’s head. 3 out of 5 stars

So Cute It Hurts!! Vol. 1 by IKEYAMADA Go. An advanced review copy of a June 2 release from VIZ Media’s Shojo Beat imprint. It’s cute, sweet, and endearing, addressing some issues not usually seen in manga, but may not stand out enough for a discerning reader. 3.5 out of 5 stars
