Wrap Up

July was a good reading month for me. Overall I read 5 books and 2 short stories.

The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

5/5 stars!

I truly loved this book. It is such an emotional rollercoaster full of strong willed female characters, amazing descriptions and quotes. You can check out my spoiler-free review here.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

4.75 or 5/5 stars

I can’t decide if I loved it enough to give it a full 5 so I thought I’d settle with a 4.75. It’s such a guilty pleasure read and it could get me out of any reading slump.

Comment down bellow please if I should make a review for this book or for the series (only book 1,2 and 3).

Dreamology by Lucy Keating

2.5/5 stars

There were some parts I liked about this book and the concept was very interesting, the idea was unique but it felt flat for me. I started this in june and I put it down because I couldn’t get past page 150. I decided to finish it during the booktubeathon so I would be happy with myself. I didn’t enjoy it, it just wasn’t for me.

Me and Earl and the dying girl by Jesse Andrews

3/5 stars

I would’ve liked this book waaay more if it wasn’t written in the way that it is. I didn’t enjoy reading those words and I wouldn’t recommend it if you are like me, meaning you hate those who speak using ugly words and who swear. No. Just no.

I gave it 3 stars because I did enjoy seeing Greg’s journey and seeing Rachel (love her!) but those words ruined this book for me.

The Crown and The Arrow 5/5 stars

The Mirror and The Maze 5/5 stars

I don’t even care these were 9 pages each. Shazi and Khalid were in them so that’s how you know they’re good books.

8621462A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I haven’t finished this book actually, I am half way through. It’s 7pm though on July 31st so I hope to finish it tonight.

I am enjoying this book but I am reading 1 chapter a day, don’t ask me why.

I’ve also been loving this bookmark I got while I was in Greece in June/July. It has the most gorgeous view and it’s a pleasure to look at it everytime I read *which is often haha*.

 

 

 

DSC_0188Lastly, I wanted to show you another favourite of mine which is a movie. I have read the book The Giver a while back and I loved it a lot. I soon watched the movie which I loved and now, 7 or more months later, I decided to get in on DVD and rewatch it! I loved it even more the second time around.

 

That’s it! My first Wrapping It Up is over! I really hope you enjoyed this post as I worked hard on it. Do you think it’s too long and I should separate my Wrap Ups and favourites from my hauls or should I leave it like this? Feedback is very appreciated!

Love,

Alexandra.

  1. I miss reading about Shazi and Khalid! 😭 but The Rose and The Dagger was such a great read!

    I haven’t watched The Giver despite reading it 5 years ago 😳 I was afraid it may dissappint me like every other book to movie adaptation, but I’ll give it a try (hopefully it’s on netflix)
