July Wrap-Up

This month was my best reading month this year and I am extremely happy about it. Here are the books I read in July:

 

I started this book on the last day of June and I finished on July 2nd, this book was really easy to read because it was really fast passed and I got hooked to it very quickly. You can read my review about The Sea Of Monsters if you want a deeper view of my opinion on this book.

 

This book was much hard for me to get into, but once I got to half way through it, it became faster and the events started to happend very quickly, which was a blast to me. I must admit that I was almost able to figure out the ending when I was in the middle of this Sophie Kinsella’s book, but it was really fun to trying to figure it out, I was always full of doubts and thinking about conspiracy theories. Overall, I enjoyed this book, I gave it 3.5 stars and if you’re looking for a cute contemporary with fun characters and an intriguing plot, this is the book for you.

 

Now that I finally read Six of Crows, I regret to put it down for so long, because it was amazing, it is one of my favorite reads of 2017 and I can’t find a single flaw in it. Leigh Bardugo became my queen.

The characters from this books all have extensive stories worth telling and all have a porpuse for their lifes, Six Of Crows follows the prespectives of 6 different people and I must admit that there was not a single one I didn’t enjoy to read. The plot is unique and every time you think you figured the book out, you didn’t, I had so many theories through out the whole book and I still wasn’t able to figure out the mind blowing end.

I didn’t make a review for Six Of Crows, but there are some awesome ones all over the internet, I’ll link here and here two of them. Despite that, I created a Six Of Crows Dream Cast and I think that looks pretty cool.

Finished Books: 4

Number of Pages: 1189

– Read a book in a day challenge & Read a book you “bought” because of the cover challenge

Random Illustrated Facts is everything I expected it to be, really fast paced and entertaining. The doodles in this book are amazing and some of these facts caught me off guard.

Did you know that carrots used to be purple and they are actually bad for rabbits? Also, it seems that, in Georgia, it is illegal to curse in front of a dead body.

This book isn’t out yet, it was kindly sent to me by Net Galley. Random Illustrated Facts comes out October 31st and you need to trust me when I say that whoever you are and whatever you like, you’ll find this book enjoyable. Here you’ll find facts about history, animals, food, science and overall just some random stuff that will have you shocked, and you can be a walking encyclopedia of weirdness just like Sheldon Cooper.

 

– Read a hyped book challenge & Read a book with a character that is very diferent from you.

The Titan’s Curse was a book that I tought I was going to enjoy more than I did, don’t get me wrong, I liked it, but I had higher expectations for it because I hadn’t been spoiled with a movie like in the first two. It turned out to be an okay read on the first half of it, but as soon you-know-who does you-know-what and is sacrificed for the others that were also in the quest, I started to get attatched to it and I very much enjoyed the end of it.

I gave this book 3.5 stars and I am currently reading the forth book in the series which is The Battle Of The Labyrinth.

 

– Read a book outdoors

When I was a little kid, I used to watch a cartoon based on The Little Prince, I watched it everyday, I remember when me and my sister talked about the adventure of that day’s episode or of how cute the fox was. Because of that, reading this book brought a warm feeling to my soul.

This book brought back the kid that I once was sitting across the table from my sister looking at the tv, the little kid that didn’t have marks on her face for frowning too much, the kid who didn’t care about adult’s problems, the friend that the little prince was so desperate to find.

Now, I fully understand what the friendship between the rose and the Little Prince means and the quote “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” has now a different meaning that it did an hour ago, when I started reading this book.

 

– Read a book with a person on the cover 

“In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them. Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys.”

I can’t express my feelings for this book, it was great and you seriously need to read it, you’ll love it, I promess you, and then you’ll understand what i feel. I can’t organize my opinions about it, and I am really sad because of it, I don’t know what to say without spoiling the whole book, so will just tell you some bits and pieces.

The Dream Thieves is a book that keeps you addicted from the first page, I felt like this book was mostly based on the relashionships between the main characters, especially Ronan. Also I need to say that I am so in love with him (yes, I know he is a fictional character) that I feel like if I don’t find someone exactly like him, I’ll die without ever having a boyfriend.

Again, as I am not able to express myself enough, I’ll leave links here and here that will guide you to two amazing review for The Dream Thieves.

 

I hope you all had an amazing month of July and a wish you all an awesome August full of reading and getting over huge TBR piles. 😘
