Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my wrap up post and probably unsurprisingly, my August TBR completely went out the window this month. I read two books and then I just didn’t feel like reading the rest so I didn’t! I did, however, manage to read 7 books in total which is what I wanted to read! Here’s what I read:
Weregirl: Typhon by C.D. Bell: I feel like I read a completely different book to everyone else because they seemed to love this but I wasn’t that impressed. I thought the plot was really boring and not a lot was happening. I thought it was ridiculous how everyone just accepted this weird mutant creature who looked like Delphine but not Delphine. I could have a massive rant about this book but I’ll save it for the review. For now I’ll just say I felt disappointed with this considering it was the last book in the trilogy.
Frostblood by Elly Blake: This was another book that I wasn’t very impressed by. I felt like I’d read this same plot so many times before four or five years ago and this book brought nothing new to the table. The world is divided by ice and fire and a cruel Frostblood king rules over everyone while Firebloods are either dead or have been forced into hiding. But wait! All is not over! One sixteen or seventeen year old girl has the power to overthrow the king and save everyone from his reign of terror! She trains with a boy she hates and constantly argues with but they are slowly drawn to one another. Now you tell me if none of this plot doesn’t already sound familiar in hundreds of other YA books? At least in the other books I read I actually liked the characters. The characters in Frostblood aren’t very likeable and don’t do themselves any favours. I felt like this story had so much potential but instead the author decides to follow what many other authors have already done and it’s just very tiresome now.
