As I’ve said in the last 3 or 4 posts now, reading is not really something I seem to be doing right now. So a TBR for November would be overly optimistic. Nevertheless, there are some books I would love to read before the end of 2017, so I thought I’d share those, and we’ll see which of them I’ll get to in November. Continue reading
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.
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 Susan – Cover 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 Why – Read 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!
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
My reading hasn’t been going all too well lately, it’s been ages since I had a month where I read A LOT. Maybe July could be it? Probably not, so I’ll set my TBR count pretty low to not disappoint myself, like in June when I read 4/9 books. Whops. Continue reading
We’re already halfway through 2017 so here’s a little reading update from me in the form of the MID-YEAR BOOK FREAK OUT TAG. So far I’ve read 29 out of the 52 books I sat as my reading goal so I’m a few books ahead of schedule. Feels good.
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2017.
Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. I mean, Crooked Kingdom was a little bit better but it’s the whole experience.
Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks you can find the original post and the rules here. What you have to do is basically just answer the 3 questions below. Today I’m doing the Diversity Spotlight with focus on girls who likes girls. (Also, I’m very aware this is a day late, but in my defense I wrote it last night, I just didn’t have the opportunity to post until now.) Anyhow, let’s get into it!
