Hey everyone! We’re already in the eighth month of the year, and I have no idea where the time is going! January feels like last month! As some of you may know, I’m currently on vacation so I couldn’t get as much reading done as I usually am able to, but I’m still satisfied with what I managed to get through! Without further ado, let’s get into it.
Also, I can’t believe I’m posting my wrap-up on time, haha! 🙂
~ The Exiled Queen (Seven Realms #2) by Cinda Williams Chima
Even though this book started out a little slow, I still enjoyed it very much. The world-building was more in-depth, and I found the characters to be more complex. I gave this book four stars!
~ Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
This book was entertaining, and the bucket list aspect was a lot of fun. The romance bothered me a little which stopped me from enjoying it as much as I thought I would. I gave this book three stars!
~ Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
This book was disappointing. I didn’t like the characters or the story. The romance made me very uncomfortable, and I won’t be reading more of Colleen Hoover’s work. Unfortunately, I gave this book two stars.
~ An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes #1) by Sabaa Tahir
Very much enjoyed this one. The world-building was strong, the characters were likable and the writing was beautiful. Full review to come soon. I gave this book four stars.
~ Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
I picked up this graphic novel while I was exploring Lahore’s newest bookstore. I read the entire thing right there and then, and I loved it. It was spooky, addictive and the artwork was breath-taking. Mini review to come soon. I gave this book four stars.
~ Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
This was LOL funny! The writing flowed nicely, most short stories were relatable and the pictures were adorable. However, some of the short stories didn’t connect with me, so I found myself getting bored through some of them. Mini review to come soon. I gave this book three stars.
Books in Progress: 2
~ Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas
I’m a little under halfway through, but I’ll hopefully be done with this by the end of this week or some time early next week.
~ The Little Friend by Donna Tartt:
Didn’t get a chance to pick this up this month. I’m halfway through, but I had to put it down because I didn’t want to put myself in a slump. I don’t have it with me on vacation, so I’ll probably get to it when I’m back home in August.
