July + BookTubeAThon Wrap-up

So July is over, which tragically means my last full month of summer break is too. Thankfully I’ve been reading a lot more this month than I did in June so I feel like I’ve made the most of my break. Here’s what I read this month.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – 3.5ish stars. SO CUTE

The Secret History by Donna Tartt – I haven’t even rated this book yet and I’m done thinking about the whole business, at least for now. But the fact that it took me 3 months to read might indicate my feelings towards it.

Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour – 4.5 stars. FAVORITE OF THE MONTH OMG. IT WAS ADORABLE.

The rest of the books are what I read for BookTubeAThon so I’m just going to do the rest of the wrap-up as a BTAT one.

BookTubeAThon Wrap-up

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – Finish a book in one day, read about a character very different from you. 3ish stars, review here.

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi – 3 stars

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi – 3.5 if we stretch it.

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli – A hyped book. 2.5 stars. Okay, but man had I expected more.

Lady SusanCover buy. 4 stars (also a stretch). Favorite of the readathon.

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – Book with a person on the cover. 3 stars. Or maybe 2.5 in hindsight.

Ms. Marvel, Vol. 2: Generation WhyRead a book completely outside. Fun fact: It was pouring down when I read it but I had to do it because it was the last day. I was miserable. Anyway. I don’t rate comic books because I don’t really understand them but I did like Vol. 1 better so yeah.

Did you participate in BTAT? Did you manage all 7 books? Either way, tell me your favorite read in July!

Thanks for reading!

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

So for the first 3 days of BookTubeAThon I read the Shatter Me trilogy. Like many other books I read during BTAT, my impression was pretty meh. But there was definitely some upsides, as well as a few downsides to the series. This will mostly be a review on Shatter Me, but I’ll mention a few things about the other books in the bottom of this post. Don’t worry, it’ll be 100% spoiler free!

Prepare yourself, one helluva rant is coming up. Continue reading

Diversity Spotlight Thursday #3

It’s been too long since I did one of these and I almost missed it today too, but in my defense I’ve been reading a lot. Like A LOT. We’re currently in the end of day 4 in BookTubeAThon and I’m halfway through my fifth book. And I’ve worked every day this week. So, there’s not much time for anything but reading and sleeping. Anyway, before I go back to doing just that, here’s some diverse books.

Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacksyou can find the original post and the rules here. What you have to do is write about:
