June Wrap Up and July TBR

It’s time for another wrap up and this month I dominated my reading. I read a total of 18 books and 2 novellas! I truly was not expecting to read this many books but I am really excited because this means I completed my original reading goal already so I’m glad I moved it up. Anyways time for the wrap up!

This was the first read of the month and it was one I was completely obsessed with and I cannot wait for the second one to come out.

Review

5/5 stars

 

 

Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

Theft-of-Swords_IphoneI had never heard of this book before and picked up the whole series from my local thrift store just because. But this book was incredible and I am definitely going to continue reading this series.

Review

4.5/5 stars

 

 

Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter

The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket

The_Reptile_Room_USA.pngI’ve been trying to reread these so I can watch the series from Netflix and so far I’ve been really enjoying these books even if they are meant for a much younger audience.

4/5 stars

 

 

 

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

13638125This month I was lucky enough to meet V.E. Schwab for the second time and I was trying to read all of her books. This one is definitely one of my favorite books ever no and I was surprised because it’s so hard to find this book.

Review

5/5 stars

 

 

The Wide Window by Lemony Snicket

The_Wide_Window_USA.pngAgain this was a great read and I’m glad that I can continue the series on Netflix.

4/5 stars

 

 

 

 

 

Warm Up by V.E. Schwab

1044728_10151697668378205_93493203_n.jpgThis is the first novella that I read this month. After finishing Vicious I couldn’t help but want more in this world so when I saw this novella I had to read it. It’s short but entertaining.

4/5 stars

 

 

 

Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

1-8I’ve been wanting to read this conclusion for a while now and I’m so glad that I finally did. It was a little slow for me in the beginning but it picked up and was amazing.

Review

4/5 stars

 

 

 

 

Leave the Window Open by Victoria Schwab

23475666.jpgOnce again I was dying for more Schwab works and since I’ve read pretty much everything she’s published I read this as my second novella for the month. It was just as great as I expected and I am dying for more of her works to be published.

4/5 stars

 

 

 

City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson

9780399547584This was a book club read and I’m so happy it got picked because this was incredible and moved up in my favorites list.

Review

5/5 stars

 

 

 

Ramona Blue Julie Murphy

31449227If I’m being honest one of the main reasons I picked up this book is because I was so excited to read about a main character who is tall. While that was exciting this book ended up being about so much more and was amazing.

Review

4/5 stars

 

 

Bleach, Volume 01

2880.jpgMy brother got this and so I picked it up one day just to see if it was any good. I didn’t dislike it but I wasn’t as interested in it as I was in the other mangas that I have tried.

3/5 stars

 

 

 

 

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

32075662Yes I finally finished this duology too and I loved it so much. My love for Schwab books only grows with each one that I read.

Review

4.5/5 stars

 

 

 

The Witch Who Came in from the Cold created by Lindsay Smith and Max Gladstone

Witch-Who-Came-in-from-the-Cold1This came from the Fantasy PageHabit and this was one I had never heard of before but it was really good. I enjoyed how even though this was a serial novel the story didn’t have a drag to it or feel too poorly paced.

Review

3.5/5 stars

 

 

 

The Invisible Library Genevieve Cogman

A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

4498105220_b617b3bbba_oTowards the end of the month I hit a bit of slump and didn’t read anything for a couple of days so I finally picked this up and I’m glad I did. This is exactly what I needed to get me out of a slump and it was pretty good too.
