There are no words to describe my love affair with literature.
July was a great reading month as far as content goes! I didn't read as much as I usually do, but what I did read was pretty great!
The Selection by: Kiera Cass- This books was pretty good. It's Disney Princess meets Hunger Games. I enjoyed how quickly the book moved along. A lot of times a book can seem to drag on, not so with this book. Overall, the plot was lacking, no major twists that I didn't already see coming. I give this book 3 out of 5 fancy dresses.
The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by: Mary Downing Hahn- This is a middle grade ghost story. If you want a good ghost story, this is not it! Even for middle grade the plot is too basic. If I had to compare this to another story I would say it is a haunted version of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Overall 2 out of 5 not so scary ghosts.
Deep, and Dark, and Dangerous by: Mary Downing Hahn- This is another middle grade ghost story. This is a re-read for me, I read this back in fifth grade and really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it just as much the second go round! Scary without being over the top, great for middle grade readers. I give is 4 out of 5 scary dolls.
Legend by: Marie Lu- Another re-read. I read this book a long time ago when it first came out and really enjoyed it. This is another book that is really good the second time! I have nothing bad to say about it. 4 out of 5 pocket knives.
The Grisha Trilogy by: Leigh Bardugo- This was a phenomenal trilogy! Complex without being confusing. The Characters were all really relatable and charming! I have a love/hate relationship with the Darkling. I think what he is trying to do is terrible, but at the same time I have added him to my list of book boyfriends...this is not good. For the whole series I give it a whopping 5 out of 5 amplifiers.
The Elite by: Kiera Cass- My feelings for this book are the same as the first book. Basic Plot. Maxon is a serious hottie though! I wish Aspen would just disappear.
3 out of 5 flashy necklaces.
The One by: Kiera Cass- By far the best book in the series. Nothing different in the plot, but the I enjoy the characters. 3.5 out of 5 dazzling tiaras.
The Assassins Blade by: Sarah J Maas- This is the book of novella's for the Throne of Glass Series. I loved each and every one of them. I love how you gain a deeper understanding of Celaena's decisions in the actual Novels. I need Queen of Shadows to be out...like now! 4 daggers out of 5.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I read this month. If you have read any of these books let me know what you thought of them down below!
