Hey, book fam!
I feel time is playing tricks on me. Do you feel the same? I feel as if July dragged on, yet it sped up too quickly by the end. I can’t believe we’re in August right now. I’ll probably say the same next month. So who knows. 🙈😂
Let me be honest with you all. I’ve been struggling lately with replying to all your comments and connecting with everyone. But I hope I can just get past everything and be myself again! Don’t worry. I’ll bug you like hell shortly.
I honestly didn’t think I’d read these many books. I’ve been putting off reading for a while now since life has gotten in the way. But I feel that if I don’t read every day, then I’m not accomplishing anything at all. Relatable? I hope I’m not alone in this. Now, let’s get to the books!
Winter by Marissa Meyer
I don’t want this series to end. I truly do not. But here I am, writing this. And I want nothing more than to cry. This book is bittersweet for me. I may sound cheesy since I wasn’t a part of the original fandom when the series was active, but nonetheless, I fell in love just like you have.
Winter beautifully wraps up an endearing and captivating series. It takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions and still won’t let go when you close the book.
Review to come!
I never thought I’d love the sequel of a book I didn’t love. But look at me praising this glorious book. I had zero expectations coming into it, and yet it may be one of my favourite reads of the summer. Zoraida blends together zombies, lost love, and witches. And I simply adore this book!
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
I’ve been waiting too long for this book. TOO LONG. You hear me, Sabaa?! And it utterly broke me. And I’m not ready to write my book review yet. But I know I have to. I’ve been dreading this book since the ending of A Torch against the Night. And I’m still conflicted with my emotions.
But don’t worry. Sabaa is a queen at writing plot twists that will tear you apart. 🙃
A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
I’VE FINALLY READ THE SEQUEL (I should deserve a prize of some sort😂 Someone please shut me up). The ending is killing me right now. And I want to desperately read the final book, yet I don’t want the series to end (what is wrong with me?!). A Gathering of Shadows doesn’t sweep me away as much as A Darker Shade of Magic does. However, I fell in love with Kell, the hellion we call Lila, and Rhy all over again. And I want nothing more than to burn the royal family. 😶 DON’T HURT MY SMOL KELL.
Other than the books I received from a publisher, I had a pretty small haul this month. A lot of new titles didn’t grab my attention, but thankfully, I was able to grab these beauties!
I want to thank Thomas Allen & Son for sending me the last three books below. I’m excited to get to them!
- Bright We Burn by Kiersten White
- Sea Witch by Sarah Henning
- Royally Bad by Nora Flite
- Game of Secrets by Kim Foster
- All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire
