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: 4 (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:
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! 😉
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!
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:
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:
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:
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.
How was your reading month? Did you read a lot of great books in July and if yes, were they as huge as the ones I read? *lol* Did you read any of the books I read? What did you think of them?
Talk to me and let me know! 😉
