Since I’m still on summer break, I had plenty of time for reading for fun. I read six (ish) books, starting and finishing the month with my favorites, and the rest were just average. I read more books than last month and hopefully I continue another good reading month for July!
#1. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Technically I started this at the end of May and finished in June, so it still counts as June, right? I wrote a review earlier this month about why this book is my favorite book ever.
#2. Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes
This is the fifth book in the Falling Kingdoms books and I adore this series with all of my heart. However, this is my least favorite installment in the series. It passes Nic’s bisexuality as something that’s complicated and his relationship with Ashur ends before it has a chance to be explored. Also, this book, more than the others, has been so Magnus-centric and I dislike his character so much.
#3. Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Walsh (DNF)
I hated this book and I feel like I’ve already spent so much time talking about it.
#4. Caraval by Stephanie Garber (ON-HOLD)
It’s an interesting plot with well-developed characters, but it fell flat towards the end of it and I just wasn’t enjoying it anymore. I plan to finish it someday, just not right now.
#5. The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
A quick, fun read but nothing too special. I kind of fell in love with the island more than any of the characters.
#6. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger
Reread. I like it more the more I read it.
What was your most anticipated read this month and what are you looking forward to for July?
