June 2019 Wrap-Up!

So, I had a pretty good reading month even though I'm still a bit disappointed in it. I've definitely had a better reading summer than last year, but I had a lot more that I wanted to get to this month and didn't. I had the time, but I chose to watch Netflix. Still, I don't want reading to become a chore so while I'm disappointed I wasn't up to reading more, I am still happy with what I read this month. I enjoyed everything I read and I found new favorites, so let's just dive in and chat about them for a while!

Title: When Evil Comes to Play
Author: B.L. Brunnemer
Rating: 5 // 5 stars
Rereading this was honestly just so great. I think this series is definitely becoming one of my most re-read series ever and I wouldn't have it any other way. This book definitely takes on a different tone than the first ones and things start to really expand. Also, my heart was somewhat broken but it's okay because I had the next books ready to go.

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps and decided I wanted to reread a couple of my favorite scenes from ACOMAF. I ended up reading the entire dang book--skim reading at times but entirely from front to back. I loved every second of it. I forgot how much I absolutely adored this world and these characters. I already want to reread the next book, though I know I should wait.

Title: The Good Girl's Bad Boys: The Good, the Bad, and the Bullied
Author: Rubixcube89201
Rating: 4 // 5 stars
I mean, this book is in no way a literary masterpiece but I enjoyed it. It's funny, it's addicting, and it has a good message behind it. It's not super realistic but the overall metaphor and message the author is trying to put out there is a good one. I didn't realize rereading this how long it actually is, because it took me so long to read it. There's almost 70 chapters and they're all super long. Even with no official page count I would probably put this book at over 800-900 pages if it were in print instead of on Wattpad. Still, I enjoyed it and am excited to read the sequel because I never got to last time I read this.

Title: Wires and Nerves
Author: Marissa Meyer
Rating: 4 // 5 stars
I forgot how much I missed these characters and enjoyed this world! I was so grateful for the recap at the beginning but I'm definitely feeling like I need a complete reread of the Lunar Chronicles. I'm ridiculously excited that I finally got to read this graphic novel, though, and I'm even more excited to have the second volume checked out on my Libby app and ready to go!

Title: The Prince and the Dressmaker
Author: Jen Wang
Rating: 3 // 5 stars
This was super cute and I really liked the message behind it. I thought the art was beautiful. It had just the right balance of angst and cute moments throughout and I was glad at how the book ended. I can see why so many people love it.

Title: Every Last Breath
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Rating: 5 // 5 stars
This was my second time rereading this book but it was like a brand new experience since I didn't remember most of it from the first time. I absolutely loved this reread. This is definitely my favorite Jennifer L. Armentrout series thus far and I can't wait to dive into the spin-off sequel. Even though it follows different main characters, I know these ones make an appearance and I can't wait to see how they're doing. Overall, I just loved this reread and this trilogy is definitely one of my favorite series.

Title: Rhapsodic
Author: Laura Thalassa
Rating: 4.5 // 5 stars

Title: Gone Rogue
Author: Marissa Meyer
Rating: 4 // 5 stars
Wow I enjoyed this one just as much as the first installment. I'm honestly just so happy that I finally was able to read this graphic novel duology. The story was interesting and I was pretty happy at how the ending was resolved. Overall, I just found it fun to be back with these characters and see how things were going after the ending of the Lunar Chronicles
