July Wrap up




And another month has pass by. This month I've read a total of six books and most of them were pretty great.

Scarlet & Cress by Marissa Meyer


I started  as I end it in June, with the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. This month I manage to read the two middle books of the series -Scarlet and Cress. With the addition of some new character -Throne in particular- Ms. Meyer was able to bring the story to a whole new level. 
I still have one book left to complete the series but I think I will first dig in Lavana story with Fairest (Lunar Chronicles #3.5).

First Comes Love


It's summer and I starve for romance, so I pick up First Comes Love by Emily Goodwin. I was a bit disappointed, it's not like I usually expect a lot from New Adult but I always wish to be surprised. It did luck originality, the characters were stereotyped and not interesting. It was not a memorable read, I'll forget about this book in a month time.

After You by Jojo Moyes


Still starving for romance after the novel from Emily Goodwin, I decided I was finally ready to get back with Lou and Jojo Moyes amazing writing, in After You, the sequel to the brilliant novel Me Before You. I love it, even though I advise you to keep at hand a box of kleenex, you are gonna cry hard again. 

The Star Touched Queen

This novel was quite a gamble, I didn't really know what it was about when I picked it up, apart that it had something to do with indian legends, and after reading The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, I was totally on it.
The Star Touched Queen was a weird book to evaluate, It full of India's folklore and the brilliant writing help to create a magical mood. The good points of this book equal the negative ones, it was a nice book.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children


While waiting for th Tim Burton's movie to come out, I couldn't pass on the book. It's quite a nice story but a bit to childish, both in writings and plot. Looks good in the movie through.

WHat about you what did you read this month? Did you happen to read any of my reads?
