Weekly Wrap-Up April 23rd-29th

Guys, I finished binging The Office yesterday. So this should mean I'm back to life and more reading will happen. 
This week I managed to finish four books. One e-book. Three physical books; one being an ARC and another being a re-read.

The Raven King(The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater ****
It's as confusing and whimsical and weird and addicting as expected. There's no way to sum up this series. There's no way to explain this series. You go in reading it for the experience. And the characters. Because come on, the characters are the series. Blue and The Raven Boys. Maybe because it's been so long since BLLB, or maybe it's just how it is, but they were at their best in this book. 
The Raven Cycle is a great series. It's so weird and different and even beautiful. I'd like to say The Raven King has some shocking moments but I barely knew what the difference between shocking and what the hell is going on moments were, so let's just leave at it's exactly the book you think it will be, a Maggie Stiefvater book.
I will say that the lack of kissing was quite a disappointment. For me there was that one amazing moment, the other was to be expected. But that amazing moment, yea, it should have been multiplied a few times because kissing.

The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian ***.5

The Wrath and the Dawn(The Wrath and the Dawn #1) by Renee Ahdieh *****(re-read)
This is even more glorious the second time around. Absolutely everything about The Wrath and the Dawn is stunningly beautiful.

Dirty(Dive Bar #1) by Kylie Scott ****
I enjoyed Scott's Stage Dive series and was excited to see her writing a spin-off type series. Now, after having read Dirty, I can say I'm super excited to see what this series brings. Because Dirty was a big step up from Stage Dive. That had a lot to do with Lydia, she's fucking awesome. She's mouthy and quick witted. Doesn't take shit from Vaughan. Not that Vaughan was a bad guy. He's was just a guy that needed to get his shirt sorted. Vaughan is a good guy that knows how to apologize after he's been a dick. Their chemistry and banter is great. The supporting characters were well rounded with complex problems of their own. Dirty turned out to be a really fun romance that brought the chuckles.
