July Wrap-Up

Wrap Up

Well, as it seems July was a good month! 😀 I might have only read 6 books but they were HUGE and had lots of pages! *lol* For instance I never thought I’d read „A Tale of Two Cities“ but thanks to Caidyn and his offer to do a buddy read I finally managed to tackle this monster of a book! XD (Thank you so much for doing this buddy read with me!!)

My average rating was a solid 4 paws so I guess this already says enough about the fun I had while reading those amazing books! Unfortunately it’s kind of obvious that I once again didn’t really manage to read some of the books that happen to be on My Book List 2019. I’m horrible, I know! >_<

But hey, I’m getting better at following my book list. From the 5 books I’m currently reading 3 are actually on that list so there’s still hope, right? I got this! Or not!? *lol* Anyway, looking on the bright side of things I upped my reading challange for the third time this year and hopefully will be able to read those 70 books! Wish me luck! I’m sure I’ll need it. 😛

Okay, let’s head directly to my statistic and the short summary now!

Books read: 6

Pages read:  2.402 (And the amount of pages is finally going up again. I might have read one book less than last month, but they had plenty of pages! XD)

Average rating:(I guess I was lucky with the books I chose for this month. ;-P)

Books that were on my reading list:  3 (2 from 2018 and 1 from 2019)

The Slow Regard of Silent Things: 4 Pfoten

This was a really beautiful book about a broken girl and the world she lives in. I know this is one of those books you either love or hate and I can say that it won’t be for everyone. I for my part enjoyed it immensely! It was intriguing to find out more about Auri and I loved to get a glimpse at her thoughts. If you’re a fan of „The Name of the Wind“ and are one of us „slightly broken people“ you’re in for a treat! 😉

Wintersong: 4 Pfoten

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS! „Wintersong“ was full of cunning faeries, German legends, sacrifices, music, darkness, frustration, anger and love! This was the perfect read for me and if you’re a sucker for a good faerie story, you’ll be more than just happy to dive into this world. If you want to read my full review you can do it here!

Obsidio: 4 Pfoten

I can’t believe this series is already over! I enjoyed this so much and I loved „Illuminae“ and „Gemina“. ❤ Obsidio was pretty good as well, it unfortunately didn’t reach the high level of angst, plot twists and nail gnawing I went through while reading the first two books though. XD Still, it was a great finale for an amazing series and AIDAN and Nik Malikov are LOVE!!! ❤ (Well, and basically every other MC as well! *lol*) If you dare to, you can find my full-blown enthusiasm here!

A Flight of Broken Wings: 4 Pfoten

This was a review copy and I enjoyed it immensely. A war between angels and humans, lots of political intrigue, an awesome bromance, two interesting MCs and fighting scenes that were off the charts! Nupur Chowdhury delivered a really amazing book and I was glad she gave me the opportunity to read it! =) Plus I adore Ashwin! XD My review.

A Tale of Two Cities: 4 Pfoten

I finally read it!!! YAY! Now I know what Will Herondale meant when he spoke about the book with Tessa! *lol* Dickens had a very interesting writing style though. The first few chapters I didn’t get anything, then it made more and more sense, and by the end of the book I was stunned into silence and thoroughly heart-broken. T_T What a journey! This really was a great classic and I can totally recommend it. 😉

Fruits Basket Vol. 23: 4 Pfoten

I’m still sad this series had to end but after 23 volumes it was no wonder that I eventually reached the final chapter. Plus it was such a wholesome and lovely ending as well! ❤ I’ll always love Kyo, Tohru and Yuki! And the entire Sohma clan for that matter! They were all amazing and unique characters and Fruits Basket will always have a special place in my heart.

    1. Thank you so much for your nice comment, Amber! 🙂 I still haven’t read „The Wise Man’s Fear“ but after reading „The Slow Regard of Silent Things“ I’m really looking forward to it. Hopefully Patrick Rothfuss will release „Doors of Stone“ soon. *lol* And you’re absolutely right, August can only get better! 😀
      I really hope you’ll enjoy „The Slow Regard of Silent Things“ too once you manage to get there. =))

  2. You had such a great reading month! 🙂
    I’m glad you enjoyed Wintersong especially. It’s such a weird book (and sometimes problematic tbh) but I found it sooo addictive and fascinating! (and OMG the Goblin King <3)
