July Wrap-Up/August TBR

Summer is half over. Where did it go?

July Wrap-Up:

Tainted Blood Tainted Blood – Joann I Martin Sowles. 3/5 stars.

Before She Ignites Before She Ignites – Jodi Meadows. 4/5 stars. Review. I love Jodi Meadows and I thought this was a very good first book that made me excited for more.

Zane Zane – Joann I Martin Sowles. 3/5 stars.

One Dark Throne One Dark Throne – Kendra Blake. 4/5 stars. Review. So dark! And I so need the need book now!

Art of Feeling The Art of Feeling – Laura Tims. 3.5/5 stars. Review. The title is definitely true. There are many feels in this book.

Cursed Brookehaven Cursed – Joann I Martin Sowles. 3/5 stars. I figured I’d wait until the last book in this series instead of writing the same thing over and over. Enjoyable series but I did find it a little slow and predictable.

Even the Darkest Stars Even the Darkest Stars – Heather Fawcett. 4/5 stars. There were some slow parts of this book but I liked the adventure aspect of it.

Dreadful Tale The Dreadful Tale of Propser Redding – Alexander Bracken. 3.5/5 stars. A fast-paced middle grade that was full of magic and had me laughing out loud many times.

Click'd Click’d – Tamara Ireland Stone. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I loved seeing a middle grade book focusing on a girl interested in coding.

Dramatically Ever After Dramatically Ever After – Isabel Bandeira. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved this companion to Bookishly Ever After, focusing on the world of theatre and speech writing.

dead beautiful big Dead Beautiful – Yvonne Woon. 3/5 stars. I was feeling a zombie withdrawal and was hoping this would satisfy it. It was a good book but I did find it predictable.

Like Water Like Water – Rebecca Podos. 4/5 stars. Review. This book took me by surprise but it was a very touching self-discovery arc.

Poison Dark and Drowning A Poison Dark and Drowning – Jessica Cluess. 4/5 stars. Review. A great follow up to A Shadow Bright and Burning. It had tons of action, new characters, and pushed the plot forward. I’m very excited for the next one.

Rise of the isle of the lost Rise of the Isle of the Lost – Melissa de la Cruz. 4/5 stars. This book series and tv-movie series is so cute. I loved the new characters added to the universe and really hope we see more of Uma, Harry, and Gil.

Ringer Ringer – Lauren Oliver. 3/5 stars. I think my enjoyment of this book would have been higher if I’d read a physical copy and could have switched between the POVs instead of reading one then the other. It feels a little repetitive that way. Still a good story though.

15797848 There’s Someone Inside Your House – Stephanie Perkins. 4/5 stars. Holy creepy! I really liked how the creepiest moments were the little things over the big attack and murder scenes. It really helped set a creepy mood.

wintersong Wintersong – S Jae-Jones. 4/5 stars. This book is slow paced but worth it. It’s very magical and very easy to be completely sucked in.

because-you-love-to-hate-me Because You Love To Hate Me – Ameriie. I love anthologies because I know I’ll find at least a few stories that I love. Especially loved the ones by Marissa Meyer and Adam Silvera.

June Wrap-Up/July TBR

How did it get to be halfway through the year already?

June Wrap-Up:

Words in Deep Blue Words in Deep Blue – Cath Crowley. 3/5 stars. This was a really cute story with some angst. A good option for a summer read. I did find it a little predictable though.

Internet Famous Internet Famous – Danika Stone. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I loved how this one had some elements of All the Feels but showed the darker side of fandom.

lucky-in-love Lucky in Love – Kasie West. 4/5 stars. Review. Super cute but it is Kasie West so I expected that:)

Furthermore Furthermore – Tahereh Mafi. 3.5/5 stars. It was enjoyable but I did find I had a hard time getting into it. I think it was more me and the timing than the book. Will probably try re-reading to see if I can get more into it during the Fall.

Warcross Warcoss – Marie Lu. 4/5 stars. Review. I love Marie Lu and this book shows why. It’s addicting and has some amazing characters.

Our Broken Pieces Our Broken Pieces – Sarah White. 3/5 stars. It was a good read but the characters weren’t my favourite. I had a hard time relating to them

Dress Codes for Small Towns Dress Codes for Small Towns – Courtney C Stevens. 4/5 stars. Review. I love Courtney C Stevens. Saying this book was my least favourite of her three doesn’t mean it’s a bad book, just that I really loved the first two I read. This was more character driven and just friends hanging out and discovering who they were.

The Beautiful and the cursed The Beautiful and the Cursed – Page Morgan. 3.5/5 stars. I was really hoping to be blown away but I wasn’t. I had a hard time getting into this one as well.

Roar Roar – Cora Carmack. 4/5 stars. I enjoyed this one. The main girl was sassy, I liked the world that was created, and the supporting cast was great.

Dazzling Heights The Dazzling Heights – Katharine McGee. 4/5 stars. Review. This sucked me in just as much as the first one did. I can’t wait to see where this is going.

The Glass Spare The Glass Spare – Lauren DeStefano. 3.5/5 stars. Review. This one went to places I wasn’t expecting and I liked that. And amazing sibling bonds!

Frigid Frigid – Jennifer L Armentrout. 4/5 stars. Might not be my favourite by her but it was still great.

Genuine Fraud Genuine Fraud – E Lockhart. 3/5 stars. I had high hopes after We Were Liars but this one was very predictable.

This Darkness Mine This Darkness Mine – Mindy McGinnis. 4/5 stars. This seemed to be the month for reading books by favourite authors and being a little disappointed. This one was still great, loved the darkness and the characters, but not as great as The Female of the Species.

If there's no tomorrow If There’s No Tomorrow – Jennifer L Armentrout. 4/5 stars. Really enjoyed this one, especially the main character.

Laney big Laney – Joann I Martin Sowles. 3.5/5 stars. I was in the mood for some vampire and hadn’t read this series yet. It’s interesting so far.

Darkness Darkness – Joann I Martin Sowles. 3.5/5 stars. I was in the mood for some vampire and hadn’t read this series yet. It’s interesting so far.
