Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂
Guess who just got back from the dentist and was stupid enough to not eat beforehand and so is now starving!!!! ME :))) Yep.
And so to distract myself from my hunger I thought I’d talk about My Favourite Books I Read This Summer!
Summer has never before been my favourite season, for the most part because I’m as pale as a vampire (to the point where my old citizenship teacher asked if I was a ghost) so the burning hot ball in the sky and I don’t get on all that much.
However I’ve actually had a great time this past summer and in the past three months, June, July and August, I’ve read some really great books.
1- Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer
I was still in school when I read this and the boy who sits next to me, the only other English boy who could possibly understand what I was reading, kept looking over at the worst time. Usually when limbs were being dismembered. He was very worried about me.
This follows a girl, Nita. Her mother kills supernatural creatures and then Nita dissects them, something she really enjoys doing, and they sell the body parts on the black market. Everything goes wrong when Nita, who isn’t exactly “human” either, is captured and sent to the biggest black market and sold to the highest bidder
I loved this book! It was so unique and different to anything I’ve ever read before. I loved the gruesomeness and the gory. I thought Nina herself was a really great and different character and I’m dying to read the sequel which comes out soon.
2- Nigh Owl by Jenn Bennett
I had this sitting on my shelf for over a year and only this past summer did I pick it up due to my newfound love of Jenn Bennett. I had a great time reading this book!!
I thought it was quick paced and entertaining. I loved the different aspects of art this book talks about: anatomical and graffiti. I enjoyed the character Bex and Jacks and I loved the romance that blossoms between them. (I can’t decide who I love more).
Overall I thought this was a great start of summer read and I’m looking forward to reading more from Jenn Bennett.
3- The Red Scrolls of Magic by Cassandra Clare & Wesley Chu
This book was amazing. I had a giant smile on my face throughout the whole book. This book was basically Magnus and Alec being cock-blocked in Europe for 200+ pages. It was hilarious and I loved it.
I mean, I was always going to enjoy a whole book devoted to salty boy Alec Lightwood but with the added bonus of beautifully described cities and the appearance of Helen and Aline it was even better then I expected.
4- Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins.
I’m just trash for modern royal contemporary novels and so this summer I picked up Prince Charming and Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins.
I really enjoyed this book mostly because of Daisy, the main character. I thought she was hilarious and witty and I related to her quite a lot. I wasn’t totally in love with the romance between Daisy and …. I forgot his name that’s how little he mattered to me. But I did have a great time seeing her interact with the royals.
5- Vicious by V.E Schwab
I feel like I’ve talked about this book quite a lot recently so I won’t yap on but just know that I thought this book was really interesting, definitely lived up to the hype and I’m now a Victor Vale Squad Stan.
So there we go, those are the top 5 books I read this past month. I know that, what with me starting college next week, it’s going to be harder to find time to read in the coming months but I hope I get some good ones in.
I’m now going to go and beg for food before I wither away. Thanks for reading!
