July Wrap Up

1st August 2016

This was a good month for me, hence the big July Wrap Up. I missed out one of the books on the list but added an extra two on. I can’t laugh at that effort. It has been a busy couple of weeks as the final countdown to the wedding comes extremely close.

A Court of Mist and Fury

This was one that I had started the month before, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses and I have to say its so much better. The characters are deeper, the story is darker and the ending is impeccable. This is my favourite on my July Wrap Up. Read my full review here.

The Song of Achilles

This book disappointed me. There were so many great things said about this books but it turned out to be awful. I hated the story and the characters. The story felt rushed and the ending is badly written and rushed. I wrote an entire review about all the problems here.

The Queen of the Tearling

This was another disappointment. It was ranted and raved about. I found flat and completely underwhelming. The characters weren’t well formed and the plot had holes. In I thought the fact the entire thing felt rushed and disjointed. There was a lot that happened and not a lot was explained. Read the review here.

Red Rising

This was a reread on my July Wrap Up. I love this book. I love it the first time I read it and I loved it a little bit more. The characters and story were completely original and well rounded. There’s blood and gore and battle plans. There is nothing more you could ask from a book. I adore the way this book leads you in and keeps you hooked.

Golden Son

The sequel to Red Rising. This one I found was a little harder to get through. There was a lot more politics and less fighting. I found it hard to keep a track of which family was allied to each other. Saying that it was still a joy to read and the twists and turns were intense.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

This was a last minute purchase and read. The book was released today and picked it up at a midnight release. The eighth story in the Harry Potter series, it was the perfect sequel to the series that stole my heart. The one thing to remember is that it is purely visual and that you shouldn’t write the story off because of it. Read my full review here.

So there’s another month gone. Look out for the remaining reviews and my TBR post coming up in the next couple days.

What did you read this month? Anything you think I might like? Let me know in the comments!
