I may be one day late with my wrap-up but for once I actually stuck exactly to my planned TBR … which is neither very good nor bad. I read 6 books, not necessarily in the order shown below, but I was so slow sometimes, I feel like I should have been able to do more. Either way, here’s what I read:
- The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (4 stars)
Read with Cátia!
- My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand/Brodi Ashton/Jodi Meadows (5 stars)
- The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner (4.5 stars)
- The Crown by Kiera Cass (3 stars)
- You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour/David Levithan (5 stars)
- Unhinged by A.G. Howard (3 stars)
As always, click on the titles above to get to the reviews (or on the name of the people I read the books with, to get to their reviews if they are up yet) and on the covers to be redirected to Goodreads!
I’ve been trying to be active on other people’s blogs, but quite honestly I know that I have been slipping up lately and been rather absent. My posts got fewer too and I am sorry about that, but mostly I am just lacking the energy to do anything more than the bare minimum. I hope to be back in full spirits as soon as the summer season at the airport is over and it won’t be as stressful anymore.
On to more happier thoughts: I got Harry Potter and the Cursed Child a day early! Whooop! Don’t ask me how, it’s a secret that must never be told – but I didn’t steal it, just making sure that’s clear. As a non-Harry-Potter-reader this is going to be an interesting experience. I am probably not as eager to read it as some of you are, but I am still excited and will turn to it soon. I really enjoy stories written like movie or theater scripts, so that’s already a good start.
Life and Other Disasters is SO CLOSE to 700 Followers and my birthday is coming up on Wednesday, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that we can make it until then maybe? If not, that’s totally cool, but I can still have a bit of wishful thinking, right? Either way I am excited for Wednesday, because it means new books!
Update on book subscription boxes: So, as you know, I got my second OwlCrate box in July and I was thinking about trying out something different in August, but due to payment confusion, I am sticking to OwlCrate for August but I have already ordered FairyLoot for September. I am super excited for that! Depending on the theme of OwlCrate in September though, I might get two boxes that month. Which boxes would you suggest I check out? Now you at least know where all my birthday money is going to go to.
