June Book Haul & Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I’ve decided to do my book haul and wrap up post a little earlier this month because I have quite a few posts planned for next week and didn’t want to end up posting my wrap up really late. The reason I have combined these two posts is because I only purchased three books this month! I am very happy with that and I did really well with it because I bought one from the clearance section in Waterstones and then another I bought pretty cheap from The Works using a voucher I had. The last one came with my June FairyLoot box so there is an unboxing for that coming your way! This means that I am having to combine my book haul and wrap up post otherwise my book haul post will be super short!

Book haul:

A Court of Wings and Ruin

1) A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

I am so excited to have this!!!!!! I won it in a giveaway and I rarely win them so I was completely flabbergasted! I was dancing around my room, I was so happy! The images of the UK cover online do not do it any justice! It is absolutely beautiful in real life and I’m just ecstatic to hold it in my hands… ah, it made me so happy. I’m in awe of the dress on the cover, the girl who designed this has some serious talent!

May Wrap Up!

Hey guys! I read five books this month and I am incredibly happy with that! I have loved every single book I’ve read! Some of the books I read were very random and spontaneous. I read a couple books on my TBR but then I also read some books I wasn’t planning on reading.

If We Were Villains1) If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio

I really loved this book! It was such a dark and twisted story. I knew from the synopsis that a character died and right from the start I was trying to read the characters thinking is it you? Are you the one who dies? When I reached that part of the book, I was so freaking shocked! I would never have predicted that, I actually thought quite the opposite. It was such a great twist and it was really interesting how the other characters reacted to that characters death. It’s funny because they are all actors so they can hide their true emotions behind a mask since they are used to doing that anyway. Such a great idea for a story. I can’t wait to post my full review this month! I just need to get all my thoughts and feelings down!

April Wrap Up!

GUYS! I actually read EVERY SINGLE book on my TBR for this month! That is amazing for me! If you’ve read some of my TBR and Wrap Up posts in the past then you will know that I am terrible for sticking to my TBR. I will probably read one and then just proceed to read whatever I feel like, it’s so bad! But this month I actually stuck to it! Yay! Pat on the back for me! Here’s what I read this month:

assassins-creed1) Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance by Oliver Bowden 

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this and if I’d enjoy it but I was pleasantly surprised because I loved it! Even though it’s based on the game I still really enjoyed it and found it quite interesting! I have bought the second book and cannot wait to continue with this series!

March Wrap Up!

Hey guys! This month has gone by crazy fast, I’m so shocked that it’s April already! This month has been a blast for me and I’ve had a lot of fun! I’ve been on a couple trips with my family and I really enjoyed them! I’m kind of surprised with what I’ve read this month because I thought I’d read more than that but I guess not because I can’t think of any other books! Hopefully next month I can read more because whilst this isn’t a bad number, I’d like to read a couple more next month.

Follow Me Down1) Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith

This was very kindly sent to me by Titan Books for review and it was one of the best crime thrillers I’ve read! I really loved it because it constantly had me guessing what was going to happen and every time I was blown away by an insane plot twist! I was left gobsmacked by the ending! Highly recommend this book and my full review will be up on Monday if you want to check that out!

February Wrap Up!

I am pretty pleased with the books I managed to read this month! Although I read more at the start of the month than I did at the end!

Nevernight1) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’m still unsure of whether or not I will read the second book in this series! I thought it was a standalone and I’m a little disappointed that it’s not because it was a good story but I don’t feel like I can commit to a series? Like the start of the book was so boring and confusing but then it got so damn good and I really enjoyed the second half! Maybe if the cover is as gorgeous as this one I’ll get it because I can’t resist having a pretty cover on my shelf, it’s so bad.

January Wrap Up!

Well this month was absolutely terrible when it came to reading! I read two books… Yep. Two freaking books. And they were awful! I did not enjoy them!

the-chemist1) The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

I just… I don’t even know where to start with this book. If you like you can read my review here but it does contain spoilers. Honestly it was one of the worst books I have ever read and I tried to write a spoiler free review but I just couldn’t. I was so angry when I was reading it and I just had to have a massive rant and take all of my anger out on my keyboard. I hated this book with a passion and I feel like Stephenie stabbed me in the back. She had the chance to write such an amazing book but instead she completely messed it up and her crime thriller became an eye-rolling romance. I would not recommend this awful book.

December Wrap Up!

How is it 2017 tomorrow? How!? I don’t understand how we are here already! Although I am glad because 2016 was such an awful year and I just want to forget about it. December was a slightly better month and it has made the year end nicely so hopefully January will be an awesome start to the new year!

I managed to read three books this month and I am pretty happy with that! I, unfortunately, didn’t manage to reach my goal of fifty books but I did read forty and you know what? I am happy with that! Forty books is pretty good for me and I think I will just set another target of fifty books in 2017 and see how I do. Here are the books I read this month:

tales-from-the-shadowhunter-academy1) Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman

I really liked this book but the ending was pretty disappointing and I don’t understand why Cassie chose that ending… Apart from that, it was really enjoyable and better than The Bane Chronicles. The chapters were more engaging and although some of them dragged, I enjoyed the majority of them.
