This is took me forever to get together but here is my collection of my Kindle books along with Audible books that I’ve brought in the month of August. Enjoy.
Cupcakes and Ink by Helena Hunting (e-book)
Novella that splits between both Tenley Page and Hayden Stryker. It show how Tenley is starting to adapt to a new city. While Hayden a tattoo artist from across the street wondering who the new girl working for his aunt. Throughout this short story it shows the attraction between the two and then a cat and mouse game afterward. Gave this book a 3/5.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness (audible + paperback)
I still haven’t gotten a review up for this book, but I will say that I loved this sequel. It was a duel POV between Viola and Todd that shows both side of the war. From the first page to the last had me engaged the whole time and I need to get to Monster of Men in July. Even if it kills me. 5/5
The BFG by Roald Dahl (audible)
This was a cute children’s book that I read because of the movie. If you read this you can’t take anything serious because it was written for kids. However I don’t overly recommended the audible. Only because there is sound effects like eating and other disturbing sounds related to it. But if you okay with that then its a quick way to get through it. 3/5
HP: and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (audible)
Listened to in one sitting and learned somethings about the story that I didn’t know before this. 4/5
HP: and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling (audible)
same as the first book. 4/5
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (paperback + audible)
I heard about this book via twitter and wanted to give it a try since I haven’t read a paranormal book in a good while. And let me just say I simple loved this book as if you follow my twitter would know. There are really strong characters and lots of elements in these book that kept me intrigued until the end. 5/5
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness (audible)
I ordered Shadow of Night and Book of Life when I was halfway done with A Discovery of Witches because I knew I wanted to continue on. I couldn’t wait for them to come so brought the audible of the last two books. And I have to say this sequel didn’t disappoint. Again with action and this time in a different place. I finished this book in 3 days and just want to continue. 5/5
I read three books over 500 pages which am really happy about since big books always scared me. However I’ve learned that audible helps with that a lot along with other formats. Also I’ve started 2 series continued 1, read a novella, and a children book. Next month I’ll be getting to more series/trilogies. Fingers crossed.
ON MY LIST FOR JULY:
Monster of Men by Patrick Ness
The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd
This book is a 4 star rating to me for the fact that it was messing something. To find out more check out my review. All you need to know now is a) I loved this book, and b) I need the other two books in this series.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Its Morgan Matson so of course I loved this book and gave it a 5 star rating. So if anyone want to see my full thoughts please go to my review.Darkness of Light by Stacey Marie Brown
]This book was actual free on Amazon and it was so good.5 stars read and excited for the rest of the series. It has a sexual attraction between the main characters. Then there is the magic aspect with a war where you don’t know which side is actual good. Haven’t done a written review but am catching up so it’ll be up soon.
And that’s it I was really struggling to get through any book. The whole month I’ve been trying to read Daughter of Smoke and Bones for about 2 weeks and still at the same spot. I’ve been busying with buying books thanks to amazon marketplace and two book outlet orders. I’ll be making a HUGE book haul later this coming week. So I’ve been more collecting then reading which is sad. For the month of May no book buying I can’t. Another thing is I’ve been reviewing more which is great for my blog to get it out there with more content. Thanks for reading and hope you had a better month then me.
I started the e-book series Night Huntress by Jeaniene Frost in the middle of the month and got addicted. I read books 1-5, then on the last day I finished a book that I was almost done with. So my list consist of:
Halfway to the Grave 5/5
One Foot in the Grave 5/5
At Grave’s End 5/5
Destined for an Early Grave 5/5
This Side of the Grave 4/5
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers 5/5
I enjoyed all the books I read this month and glad that i could get to them. Plus it helped me get through my 60 books toward my goodreads challenge. Hopefully toward the next year I can keep up my reading, and get through some good books.
